The people who think this was all a conspiracy are so completely out of touch I'd be scared to have them as neighbors.

My father worked with NASA and for Dr. von Braun in the 1960s. As a little girl, I used to go with him to Redstone Arsenal in Huntsville, AL to watch test firing of the Saturn V engines (just one at a time though). He was one of 37 men that were awarded medals, their names on the moon on microfilm and a plaque in the Smithsonian.

He told me before he passed on that today's Game Boys have more computing power than he had to work with in the '60s.

I used to get letters from him (certain sentences and words blacked our cut out) during some of his long trips (components were made all over the country) because it could endanger "national security."

Yes, they did make it to the moon, yes they brought back samples and rock and oh, don't you think it odd that astronomers can see the base of the Eagle and other debris left by our astronauts on the lunar surface? Hmmm...

Find something else to whine about...that perhaps President Bush is a clone.

This subject never ceases to crack me up.


I just have one question about the whole thing. Why?

If you were going to fake the Moon landings:

Why take pictures at all? Use the radiation or lighting issues that the Moon hoax people keep throwing at us as reasons for not taking pictures or for providing lousy pictures.

Why have television footage at all? No television, no chance of making any mistakes that might be caught later.

The video provided at the beginning of this thread, in my opinion, is proof that we actually did go to the Moon. If the segment at the end is reversed, then someone edited the footage to fake evidence that we didn't go to the Moon. That means that we must have gone or else there would be no need to have faked the evidence in the video. If it wasn't reversed then we still must have gone to the Moon because no one trying to fake evidence is going to let something that bad slide by.

Think about it this way. If the Moon landings were faked, there would be none of the inconsistancies that the Moon Landing Hoax people keep pointing out. These would have been taken into consideration. You can't give people credit for being smart enough to have faked the landings, fooling the entire world in one breath and then point out their mistakes in another. The very presence of these "mistakes" and inconsistancies is proof to me that the landings did occur. If they were faked none of them would exist.


By the way. The reason for there being no dust cloud behind the wheels of the Lunar Rover is that you need AIR to hold the fine particles of dust in suspension to have a cloud. If this was faked, I don't see them doing it in a vacuum chamber.

I must admit that the film allegedly showing the wires is not convincing at all, but the last footage showing that dude getting up is either reversed as Grady says or he was helped up by a wire. Even in 1/6 the Earth's gravity that didn't look right. The astronaut looked a little top heavy and even in the moon's gravity wouldn't have been able to get up like that. So if we can prove that the film hasn't been reversed, then I'm convinced, even more so, that all this footage is bogus along with all the rest.

Peace

Interesting find.

It doesn't appear that the film is running backwards. If you notice the movement of the dirt kicked up by their feet, you'll see that it moves away from their feet. If the film was running in reverse, the dirt would be flying back toward their feet.

Where do these film clips come from. How do we know they aren't clips from a practice session on earth.

If this clip is faked by NASA, does that necessarily mean there was no moon landing? I think not. It certainly raises questions but it isn't proof positive.

I am more than convinced the conspiracy theory can be easily debunked. What does concern me is the negative feedback given to the original poster-you know who you are! Perhaps it's just me, I just thought it was quite unnecessery and offensive.

Anyway.. the moon theory interests me. I can see both sides of the argument. Some argue that the filming was staged but the visit to the moon took place, this wouldn't surprise me. We know there are mirrors on the moon and I think radio broadcasts can somehow where traced (not 100% mind). The video in question looks quite convincing- yet considering Valhalls observation relating to gravity the video could and probably is genuine. Unfortunately the video is low res and could easily have been tampered with.

Just my two cents.

At 1:18 on the clip with the Astronaught getting up, I noticed something falling from his backpack. I don't know what an object looks like falling in 1/6th of the Earths gravity but the object that fell from his backpack hit the ground quickly.

Well well... If you u dont se that astronaut is on wires than you have an iq below a 10 year old. Even HK- cinema did that wire trick better in the 60´s & 70´s!!!

If it were fake the russians would have been all over it. But the russians said nothing and accepted they had lost the moon race. I think they would have claimed a hoax if it was.

Can't see anything in that video...

I've looked at the video several times and it doesn't look fake to me. I don't see a line either although I can see how some people might think it's a line pulling him up. As somebody else already pointed out on this thread it's easy for a man to move around on the moon due to the significant differences in gravity. Besides, I know we've been to the moon (probably on many more trips than have been reported) because they have a secret base on the far side that has been in operation for many years.

Looks like flecks on a grainy vid...probably artifacts from the old magnetic recording...Although I wouldnt rule out a bit of post edit either.


Thing is NASA lost some original tape now...wait for that conspiracy.

My Sentiments exactly!!! If only people would use there head more often

Another thing about the last footage, it looks like they were trying to make it seem like the other astronauts were helping him up. I haven't seen acting that bad since the Rock in that last film of his I suffered through.

Edit to add: And on the whole "if Russia knew it was fake they would have said something"........not necessarily. Russia probably did know it was faked and on top of that Russia probably knew there were things on the moon that could not be explained. For the sake of not causing a worldwide panic and knowing that the Americans could probably do a better job of pulling off a fake of such magnitude, they went along with it Cold War or not.

Did you see the videos in my previous two posts? Especially the Hammer and Feather video. It shows how fast things fall. Also if you read my post. I mentioned that the thing that fell was more then likely a sample bag.

And you method of 'debating' is that of a 10 year olds too. Oh and the wire stuff in those kinds of movies looks pretty bad, as in, it really looks like they are on wires.

I noticed that too. Definately not reversed.

You can tell by the way the dust flies. It doesn't stay suspended in the air at all, unlike how dust would if it were in an atmosphere. All the dust kicked up by the astronaut falls to the ground.

They are a bit top heavy with the PLSS on there back. The astronauts center of gravity is off because of it. But why wouldn't an astronaut be able to get up? Did you look at any of the videos i posted? Perhaps you could explain in detail why it wouldn't be possible.

OK...everyone has got it wrong so far about the mirrors on the moon!

You know who it is?
Do you want to know who it is?

KHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAANNNNNNNNNNNNNNN!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

OK...I had to say....

Well, I can clearly see the other astronaut pulling him up with his right hand which makes this the dumbest three pages I've ever read..

...it shouldn’t really surprise anyone to see Images of Astronauts dangling from wires in what appears to be a “fake” lunar surface. Nor should anyone take such images as “Proof” that the Moon Landings were faked.

Langley Research Center housed a Reduced Gravity Simulator that was used to study and practice maneuvering in a reduced gravity environment during the time frame of the Apollo missions.

The mission planners were very concerned about Astronauts walking on the moon. They were extra concerned about Astronauts falling on the lunar surface. The fear was that a fall could result in a puncture or tear in a space suit, which would have the potential of being quite deadly.

Scientists used the Reduced Gravity Simulator to study maneuvering on the moon. They paid extra attention on falling, attempting to fall in a relatively safe manner and recovering from a fall in a relatively safe manner (standing back up).

And further, Astronauts used the Reduced Gravity Simulator to practice maneuvering on the moon, again, with emphasis on falling and recovering from a fall.

The video I saw was obviously a hodgepodge of various “Off The Wall” clips tacked together. Nothing I saw in that menagerie of clips could even remotely, in my opinion, lend any credence to thought that the moon landing “never happened.”

Pa-leeeeze

This video doesn't proove anything.
The first thing in the video points to the little flashes of light above the backpack. This is simply light reflecting off the antenna. Here's a link to a picture on wiki. en.wikipedia.org...:As17-140-21391c1.jpg
The next thing is an arrow pointing to something at the top of the screen. I don't see anything except pixelated crap.
At the end, this is definately the result of the moon's gravity, which is 1/6th Earth's gravity. This means that a 180 lb man becomes a 30 lb. man. The astronauts would be just as strong as they are on Earth, pushing on one sixth the weight.
The last thing is the white thing supposedly falling from the astronaut. Go frame by frame, and it looks like more pixelated crap to me.
Go to www.badastronomy.com... for some explanations of some common hoax theroies.

Here's something to throw onto the fire while it's still warm...

news.yahoo.com...

Just interesting that they can't find the original MOON LANDING tape/film.

I'm not even sure why I'm wasting my time replying to this thread. I can't believe that there are people so desperatly ignorant that they continue the "moon hoax" debate. There is ample evidence out there if you would just take a look.

All the points made by the WeDidn'tGoToTheMoon crowd are debunked here: www.braeunig.us...

ALL OF THEM. Get over it. We went to the moon.
