I didn't see anything strange at 5:34 (it's hard to see anything clearly on the video), but the next picture at 5:39 was interesting...Is this what you are referring to (this is a different photo showing the same thing):


If so, that is just the contact probe that stuck stright down from the landing pads. These probes told the astronauts and the on-board computers when the LEM contacted the lunar surface. This photo shows the contact probe bent under the pad after landing.

EDIT TO ADD:
I found the original photo that was shown in the video showing the contact probe under the foot pad:

Thanks Internos


I was searching the library for that "faraway" picture of the LEM. Thanks for finding it.

EDIT TO ADD:
By the way, here's a clear shot of the contact probes sticking down from the footpads on the LEM, soon after undocking from the Command Module (this photo is taken by Mike Collins in the Command Module):

Good work finding that information, complete with proof so quick. Just five posts on a mistake almost anyone could have made.


What a team!! Space Exploration is an exact science, and you guys show that.

stevec, that was a good find, even though it turned out to be simple. We learn by examining everything, and speaking up when there's something we don't.

I agree with the statement you made about internos being not human. I don't have a chance to beat the speed he has in finding these pics so quick.

What's 4,521,356 x 8,927,421 internos?
