Mike Bara, TV whore

On "Truth Behind the Moon Landing" S1E1 (Science Chan), after watching a demo by Dr. Michael Walter at The Carnegie Institute for Science, Mike Bara said this:

"It changed my mind. It seems it was possible to go through the Van Allen belts."

Well guess what? He's ON RECORD as being convinced of that anyway. Last year he wrote this about NASA's arrroach to the problem:

"Their solution was simple -- avoid exposure by keeping the spacecraft at low Earth orbit altitudes while in parking orbits and then send it through the belts at high speed. The eventual escape speed, some 25,000 miles per hour, would have passed them through the belts in less than an hour, keeping their dose well below 1 rad. There was a modicum of shielding from the equipment, but in the end this was not necessary as the extraordinary transition speed kept the dose below harmful limits -- both going to and returing from the Moon. NASA spent millions to develop the necessary technology to insure [sic] that the astronuats that went to the Moon were protected from the the physical threats of deep space and they were monitored at all times with dosimeters while travelling to and from the Moon. So the notion that the Van Allen belts would have turned the astronauts to crispy critters is simply false."

----Ancient Aliens and JFK (2018), p.183

So in other words, Bara was just putting it on for the TV show, doing what the producers asked in return for some $$$$$. What a whore.

I'd say Bara has forfeited any claim he might have had for expertise on space technology. He chose money and fame over integrity.

You're kind of assuming he had any integrity to start with.
