I don't see how an encyclopedia can be trusted more than NASA.

Moon dust is also not like earth dust and I would imagine is closer to gravel and most visible particulate would return to the lunar surface in the observed time frame in the clips and not much later as is being suggested.
Actually the moon dust was described as being like talcum powder not like gravel. I think its because everything on the moon has been finely beaten and smashed by meteors.

I am a big dummy, but isn't Apollo a sun representation? Why name a "Moon" mission the name of the Sun. We don't spend billions of dollars on things for no reason, but to gain "power". I have a feeling that we weren't targeting the moon, as told to us plainly with the name of the missions. Even the mission badge for Apollo eleven shows us a yellow target, with the path as a figure 8. I'm thinking that the Sun was the actual target, and that it works a little differently then we are lead to believe. Then again, I'm a big dummy.
The few lunar excursions indicated that the moon was a very dry world. One lunar expert said that it was "a million times as dry as the Gobi Desert." The early Apollo missions did not find even the slightest trace of water. But after Apollo 15, NASA experts were stunned when a cloud of water vapor more than 100 square miles in size was detected on the moon's surface.

Do you happen to have any links? I searched for that but I could not find anything.
David Hatcher Childress (born 1957) is an American author of books on topics in alternative history. His works often cover such subjects as pre-Columbian trans-oceanic contact, the Knights Templar, lost cities and vimana aircraft.  Much of his writing, particularly his claims for ancient technology, relies upon 'channelled' information from other writers. Within the academic community his works are not cited and his books generally dismissed. Although Childress regularly claims to be an "archaeologist," in fact he has no college degree, having dropped out of his freshman year of college never to return

By your reasoning Project Mercury should have gone to the planet Mercury and Project Gemini should have gone to the stars Castor and Pollux. I wouldn't put a whole lot of meaning into the names of the projects.
The basis for the modern understanding of orbits was first formulated by Johannes Kepler whose results are summarized in his three laws of planetary motion. First, he found that the orbits of the planets in our solar system are elliptical, not circular (or epicyclic), as had previously been believed, and that the sun is not located at the center of the orbits, but rather at one focus. Second, he found that the orbital speed of each planet is not constant, as had previously been thought, but rather that the speed of the planet depends on the planet's distance from the sun. And third, Kepler found a universal relationship between the orbital properties of all the planets orbiting the sun. For each planet, the cube of the planet's distance from the sun, measured in astronomical units (AU), is equal to the square of the planet's orbital period, measured in Earth years. Jupiter, for example, is approximately 5.2 AU from the sun and its orbital period is 11.86 Earth years. So 5.2 cubed equals 11.86 squared, as predicted.
