"You're a coward," he [Sribel] exclaimed, "and a liar, ..."
Just goes to show how honorable these conspiracy theorists are.
Mind you, someone who risked his life in space to prove American dominance. A man who risked his life to uphold the glory of his country.

I suggest everyone watches the video before commenting, because some of the comments from the astronauts are surprising, to say the least.
"I'm not sure we went far enough out to encounter the van allen radiation belt" -- Alan Bean
the guy then tells him about a 1998 shuttle mission where they went 350ish miles up (650 below begining of radiation belt), and the astronauts reported seeing what they called shooting stars while their eyes were closed. Then he asks alan bean, and he says that yah, if you close your eyes and concentrate you could probably see them, but not on their mission, because they hadnt been discovered yet.
One astronaut says the engines were really loud, another says they couldnt be heard in the vacuum of space, etc. I think it warrants a viewing.

Light flashes during the flights of the atmosphere ship
The light flashes reported during the flights from the astronauts is "high energy radiation of particles coming into the eye. The high energy particles urge through the space ship casing, glasses and helmets into the eye and produce little light flashes on the retina. And now it's interesting that these light flashes were count by the different space crews."
Already in the Earth orbit are light flashes (Wisnewski, p.200).
The "moon astronauts" have allegedly not counted more light flashes as during an orbit round the Earth
It's strange that the astronauts during their "trip to the moon" had not counted more light flashes as astronauts in an orbit around the Earth in a low height. The Apollo atmosphere ships report an average of only 14 light flashes per hour. Apollo 17 does not report any light flash. Later the space station MIR (400 km in orbit) counts an average of 11 light flashes per hour, but Apollo-Soius counts 27 (220 km in orbit), and Skylab 78 (440 km in orbit) light flashes per hour.

It certainly doesn't help NASA'a cause when they admit to the world they "misplaced" the original CLEAR video tape of the most important event in human history
For years 'lost' tapes recording data from the Apollo 11 Moon landing have been stored underneath the seats of Australian physics students. A recent search has uncovered them
The originals were recorded at three tracking stations - one in the U.S. and two in Australia at Honeysuckle Creek tracking station in the Australian Capital Territory and Parkes radio telescope in central-western New South Wales.
They also proved that NASA did go to the Moon.
would simply like to clarify that the tapes are not lost as such, which implies they were badly handled, misplaced and are now gone forever. That is not the case," John Sarkissian, operations scientist at the Parkes Radio Observatory in Parkes, Australia, told the Space.com Web site.
