I guess Google moon is cause for celebration for everyday people like you and me! However conspiracies have been talked up and forth about many aspects about the Moon Missions. So how do history and our observations fit to the experience brought to us through Google Moon?

Is this a real tool or extension of propaganda to make us think what has been planned for us?

This thread is for all to discuss and exploit the associated aspects.

I will make the start by a couple of simple observations i have made during my first few minutes in play with Google Moon. I guess all of this is going to become exponentialy more complex along the way.

So:

DISTANCES !

They do not add up between NASA and Google.
To anyone being serious at all in studying this distance is a key factor.
What is what? I am confused... If you cannot be sure about something as simple as distance then its only natural than a main area of study is cut off...
Take a brief look:






YES! 20 NASA meters make about 33.5 Google Moon meters...

hmmmm
moving along

If you venture in Google Moon you will see that Little West Crater is normally presented by Google as a horizontal header. NASAs version of the header is a 3d header following the shape of the ground. NASA certainly has time resources and reason for doing this! Right?

Moving a bit further along and checking in Google for yourself you will see that for safety reasons the astronauts only ventured a few meters away from their Lunar Module. This is not exactly my know of things but according to Google the furthest they went was that Little West Crater some 60.5m Google meters away from the LM. Hmmmmmmm....

I will stop for just now since the questionmarks i have are endless and i don not want this to turn into a spaghetti of my own questions.

Both your answers and your own questions are all welcome.

Tip for the pictures that do not fit in the ATS environment:

Right click & show image should sort you out

Google earth, sky, moon, these are handy quick references, not serious research tools.

If I'm not mistaken, it looks like the problem comes from reprojecting the NASA scale designed for a 2d image of 3d terrain back onto a 3d model of the terrain.

Apollo 11 spent little time on the surface (only two and a half hours on EVA), much of it spent deploying experiment packages; west crater was as far as they went. 60 meters for Apollo 11 has been my understanding all along, so this is consistent with the apollo record.

Pretty good then, i am quite happy with that.

Is it normal that the follow up missions covered considerably larger distances? Propably... I am not as literate on the moon.

Much greater distances. Especially from Apollo 15 on, when they had the rovers.
