Really starting to wonder about the space program. I'm not exactly sold on anything but when I watch these videos it blows my mind.

I've been reading a lot about the Antarctica conspiracy and the Nazi's and Admiral Byrd and I really start wondering what the hell is going on.



Sped it up it looks like a regular quad in the desert.



Now I can't watch the second video without knowing for sure that it's complete bs.

What do you think?

Yes that's complete bs
They are just showing it in slow motion.

It's been shown before, I just can't work out why.
Can you think f any reasons that it is slowed down, do you deny the moon landing

38 million for an old gi Joe jeep, surplus stock I reckon

You should have sped it up 3x to get a more Earthlike look.

The Moon's gravity is 1/3 of Earth's.

But then, of course, the buggy would be accelerating and turning too fast.

Nice try but no bannana.

Who says that NASA?

Where did you learn that fact???

False. You're about double the actual figure.

5/6 according to the same people who made the video.

The surface gravity of the Moon is 1/6th that of Earth.
Moon 1.6 m/s^2
Earth 9.8 m/s^2

I didn't watch the stupid video.

No it doesn't. Not at all. Look at all the dirt & fine dust it's throwing: On Earth, dust thrown in the air like that hangs in the air like a cloud for many seconds or minutes. It would do that even if it was filmed indoors. Instead it all falls right back to the surface, just like it should in a vacuum.


when I watch these videos it blows my mind.


Why are you only focusing on conspiracy videos, instead of educating yourself on the subject. Here's a video about the people who actually built the rover:




I've been reading a lot about the Antarctica conspiracy and the Nazi's and Admiral Byrd and I really start wondering what the hell is going on.


What's going on is that unscrupulous people are using the internet to prey on the natural curiosity of alternative thinkers. They are absolutely relying on people NOT checking to see if their arguments have any basis or merit. By "checking" I do not mean looking at a bunch MORE conspiracy videos. Educate yourself!

What I sense here is a crisis of belief - a crisis of trust. Whether or not the film shows a rover on the Moon is not a matter of belief; It's a matter of understanding. In this case, it only took a moment of thought to understand that wheels cannot throw fine powder around without it getting suspended in the air - therefore this had to have been filmed in a vacuum. With some understanding about air pressure and engineering, you will realize that it is impossible to build that big of a vacuum chamber on Earth.

Once you understand, then you won't need to believe - you will know. The thing is, you will not gain any understanding from conspiracy videos that prey on the gullible.

Do you want to take a trip? Link

Calculating a body's gravity is very simple maths, (even though Chr0naut got it slightly wrong this time). So, no you dont have to take Nasa's (as everyone knows, the ONLY space agency in the world) word for it, but feel free to thank Newton et al if you like.

If the "fine powder" is moist does it act in the same fashion?

I would assume with less gravity the a large portion of the fine dust would be kicked up into space wouldn't it? Not immediately float back down to the surface of the moon??

and those screen wheels really threw the powder too...

Why would you assume that?
How fast do you think the dust was moving?

"Escape velocity" on the lunar surface is about 2,800 mph.

Step 1: Learn a bit of physics.
Step 2: Pay attention to stupid videos.

Apparently it's more likely to be suspend in the air in Earth's atmosphere which has 5x the amount of gravity. I would think that with less gravity more suspension is likely.

No suspension (no air), but it would fall slower from the top of its arc.

is was sarcasm... they designed them with screen to keep the dust DOWN.

please keep up

All mass is accelerated by gravity, in this case 1.6m/s2, at the same rate. It does not matter the size or amount of mass. A grain of dust or an oil tanker will hit the surface at the same time if dropped from the same height.

It would be easier to keep the dust down with moisture.
