I know much has been said re the moon landings but I have always had a theory as to what was really going on, so here goes.
America/Russia were locked in a technology race, the US wanted to be on top but the Ruskies beat them to it in 1961 by putting the first man in
space. America now has to up the stakes. Kenedy states we'll put a man on the moon by 1996.
But was that possible, its one thing to fly around in low Earth atmosphere and another landing on another celestial body. Russian rocket technology
is still superior to the US's even today, America uses Russian designed engines to power its rockets.
But back in the cold war years there was no sharing of technology, so with America wearing egg on its face had to do something. The logical thing to
do is to have two plans runing along side each other. One being a real attempt to be able to get to the moon the other a fake landing filmed in a
studio if the real plan goes tits up.
The chances in 69 of getting men to the Moon, land there and get back must have been the equivalant of trying to go to the deepest part of the ocean
in 1800 magnified a thousand times. The real plan went ahead America could certainly get a man into orbit but that was no good, can we get him to the
Its logical when setting out on these types of endevours to practice till perfect, and just as astronauts are now training to go to Mars and are
working in a Mars type environment the same goes for the moon.
Realistic sets would be built, and harsh environments would be used to simulate he conditions on the Moon. All this would of course be filmed for
research and training. All perfectly logical and understanably for an unknown environment.
But somewhere along the line the question is asked what happens if it goes wrong, what happens if the watching World see's our guys getting fried in
space, or pulverised on the moon. The impact on Americans would be massive but more so for those who were out to beat the Russians. It would be a
propaganda disaster, one that the US would take years to recover from.
So just like the movies it all works out fine in the end, Two rockets go up, one stays in earths orbit where its safe the other heads for the moon.
Does it reach the moon, who know's till we get the real proof no one will know but if it missed or crashed on the Moon then its roll the film.
It was this film that was shown to the world, a combination of real footage from space and film from the training set, that was what was sold to the
public. The biggest hoax of all mankind and as I type there are probaly the bones of those brave men who were sent to their deaths in the name
propaganda, just to get one over on the Russians. But with all exploration there is a price to pay, its a pity we dont even know there names.
Has America returned to the Moon no, Russia who was far ahead in the space race never even tried and one has to ask the question why. The space
station sits in near earth orbit well away from the sterilizing Van Allen belts. I did here a story that the US tried to blow a hole through them with
nukes to clear a path for the astronauts back in 69, it didn't work it just increased the radiation levels.
