This is a hilarious movie about this guy going around and interviewing the apollo astronauts. They look awfully flustered when he asks them tough questions, and their accounts seem to contradict one another. One of the astronauts even punches the guy in the face (for a pretty good reason). He also tries to make them swear on the bible that they went. It's quite amusing, although it seems like bad journalism.

I didn't watch the videos, but I know who you're talking about.

The guy is a big believer that we didn't go to the moon. He tried to get the guys who landed to swear on a bible. He was a real a-hole to Buzz Aldrin (second man on the moon) in particular and after a while, Aldrin just went and clocked the guy. It was a pretty awesome video when I watched it before.

The guy tried to sue but the judge threw the case out. Thankfully. The guy is a total jerk.

That punch is one of the best examples of proof that we did land on the moon. If Aldrin hadn't put foot on the moon, he wouldn't have acted that way, he probably would have sworn, or held a press conference, or something. That he got so riled up is good proof he landed.

Let's put the thing in context:

The astronaut in question, Buzz Aldrin, is one of many astronauts who have been hassled in public by the "reporter", Bart Sribel.

Sribel has constantly hounded Aldrin and other astronauts; this is not their first enocounter. Sribel is confrontational and keeps insisting that the astronauts MUST confirm his theories. He was, according to many reports, actually trying to provoke some physical altercation and had the camera setup in place.

www.csicop.org...

So he does it not by truth, not by reason, but by slinging the ONE insult that a military man won't stand for:


"You're a coward," he [Sribel] exclaimed, "and a liar, ..."


Frankly, if this loon had gotten in my face, wouldn't listen when I told him the truth, and then roared at me that I was a coward and a liar, *I* would punch the loon as hard as I could.

Bravo, Buzz, for standing up for his own honor and the truth!

Just goes to show how honorable these conspiracy theorists are. Unrightfully calling someone a coward and a liar? 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 myself have dreams of travelling space, and I uphold these men with great honor. This conspiracy theorist is just trying to pick fights. Shame on him.

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.

you are on a conspiracy site, and i would imagine every conspiracy theorist has a different level of honor.



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.


Not that anyone cares, but I find those two sentences disgusting.

edit: Another funny thing is one of the astronauts son asks if they should call the cia and have him waxed, which is curious.

Both are true..
From inside, a craft, you can hear your own engines.., but not the engines of a seperate craft...

How would you feel if you were one of the most important parts, of one of mankinds greatest achievements..
And some twerp hounded you repeatedly
until you fessed-up that it was a Bogus achievement?

Even though, you knew you were there on the moon, you touched it, you walked on it..You even smelled the dust, once back in the LM..

What a way to treat an American hero. No wonder Armstrong, stays out of the public light..

About the video, I would say "disgusted" is how they look...Not flustered.

I would have punched the guy *more* then once.

What a jerk.

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:

www.foxnews.com.../space

Geroge martin can find 17 takes of "She Loves You". Jimmy Page can dig up and digitally restore exotic video mediums of Led Zep, but no one knows WHERE these are at?!?! And becuse it wasn't "A PRIORITY"?!?!

Sorry. I have hard time with this one.

It is radiation!




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.

Lost Moon landing tapes discovered




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.

www.cosmosmagazine.com...

...bugger. I should of read your link properly




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.
