I'm just going straight to skunkworks with this one. Save everyone the time and effort lol.
But okay, here's this video that's been around for a while that I'd like to discuss. No doubt many on ATS are familiar with it.
Before we start I'd like to state, I am here for a civil and hopefully intelligent discussion. I am not making claims of fake or real.
I'm here to add to my knowledge bank either way. No bias.
If you do respond to this post regardless of your view point please stay on topic and avoid abusing others.
It's okay to agree to disagree. Just please, let's show some mutual respect.
If you do answer, and you feel your answer is fact and not opinion, please provide links or evidence to back your claims.
Although good old factless opinions are welcome.
Just would like to not see this thread locked or have it turn into a Circus. We're all adults here and this is NOT facebook/reddit.
Seriously echo chambers are no fun.
The video is apparently footage from the Apollo 11 mission when it is half way to the moon.
So with that out of the way, the video and some simple questions.
Is this video legit NASA footage?
If it is, what is going on exactly?
Why are they filming the Earth from the other side of the vehicle when most official vision of the scene always seems to be presented as if the camera
is right up against the window. That we're getting a image of the full Earth, not a image of a part of Earth through a window?
Why is that astronaut, forget which one it is, Collins maybe? holding something against the windows that seems to be adding an effect of 'shadow' to
Are they really half way to the moon at this point, or a low Earth orbit?
If they're not 'faking' anything, then what exactly are they doing in it and why?
Would the light in the windows be so blue if they were halfway between the moon and the Earth?
Or is the 'blueness' a trick of the light or something?
Why do the clouds seem so thick and large as if the shot is close to Earth, instead of finer and whispier as might be expected looking at modern
satellite and ISS images?
What specific piece of land can we see in the Earth Shot hidden beneath the clouds?
Seems like, at least to me, a piece of a land mass, not an entire country or continent. Be great to match it up on google maps or similar to get an
idea of scale.
If I've missed anything feel free to pose your own questions relating to this footage.
I look forward to your responses and a great discussion.
edit on 12-9-2018 by AtomicKangaroo because: removed a double bit of text.
Looks like the part of the earth under the clouds is the Pasfic Ocean perhaps, I
only think that due to the apparent size of the blue.
Nothing really jumps out at me as suspescious. The astronaughts all appear to be the peaple who supposedly did the mission.
I skimmed your video so I could see shots of earth,the space craft and the men. They all look
As they should at least when compared to other footage I’ve seen.
I am gunna take the liberty to stir the pot right off the cuff too.
Magnetic fields extend infinitely, at what point do we really leave earths magnetosphere? At what point do we enter the feilds of other bodies? Are we
ever truly without any magnetic field? I personally think not, that magnetic feilds extend,overlap,intertwine and interact with each other permeating
the entire cosmos.
Have you not seen the video. They actually tell you that is the Pacific Ocean and the North America land mass. Probably what is confusing you a bit is
the first part of the video the Earth is on its side, ie the poles are at the sides. Then later in the video they reorientation and film it with the
poles at the top and bottom.
I doubt they are halfway to the moon. I don't believe the ISS is that far out either. As far as I am aware, we are currently unable to fly any
farther than low earth orbit. I don't believe anyone has made it to the moon yet.

I don't believe anyone has made it to the moon yet.
I also don't "believe" anyone has made it to the Moon. I know it for a fact based on the
preponderance of evidence that supports the claim. No faith required, the astronauts left a lot of stuff behind that can be, and has been, verified.
Fair enough retracted.... right you are currently we do not have a ship that we can simply get into
And take off to the moon....we have the ability to make said ship again but yet you are right we currently don’t have a usable one...
My apologies I was dragging in preconceived notions from another recent similar thread I had read here and I was a bit shocked at your
stance.....faith fully restored and I’ll work on
My reading comprehension.
The footage is genuine, the interpretation is not.
The first Earth shown was from an unscheduled TV broadcast made on the 16th of July. The main feature visible is a storm system known as Hurricane
Bernice, which only appeared in that formation on that day. Although it was an unscheduled broadcast it was still picked up by some evening news
channels and did appear in the next day's newspapers.
The weather patterns on show can be verified by looking at the satellite images taken at the time - images that were not complete when they broadcast
Subsequent views of Earth were made at other times in the mission and can also be matched to satellite imagery.
It seems to me that if they really are able to go, it would be a good idea to start a moonbase before they attempt to go to mars. The idea of going
straight to mars is risking a lot when you consider that no base has ever been tested to actually work off planet except the ISS. I would think they
would want to create a moonbase as close as possible to the mars plan just to work out any bugs and make sure it's the best way to do it. Especially
in regard to finding ways to use any local resources there.
Yes that would be the a logical plan to lay out. I don’t think many people really believe we will have people living on mars in the next 20 years.
Space X is drumming up interest in the field of space so the coming generations can get involved.
Personally I wouldn’t be getting on any one way trip to mars not anytime soon anyways.
Nothing there but dusty rocks and CO2, earth is way better.
I am leaning more towards the futures on these planets being in subtranaians climate controlled spaces. Send bots to build the fascility and start
crops,generate oxygen get it nice n cozy for us first.
