If Apollo was fake, then why you using the computer today?

I find it very entertaining that individuals believe that Apollo Missions to the Moon were FAKE!


Why because they are using Apollo era technology to connect to the internet. Modern cpus are direct decendants from the Apollo Guidance computer. My thread about the Apollo guidance computer is here.

There are too many reasons for the Moon Landings, like the entire planet has been changed because of these events, to say that the entire Apollo project was a hoax.

The main thing I see about Apollo and claims the landings were invalid, seems to be due to misunderstanding of the data at hand, thereby being interpruted by the individuals as best the can, yet still coming to the decision that the apollo missions were a lie.

Apollo was not a hoax!

Your computer is the reason why!

If you think you have evidence that proves Apollo was fake bring it to the table to discuss thanks!

Computers were around for decades before the Apollo landings. Just because they would have adapted existing technology to use for the project does not provide evidence that the landings happened. Miniaturization and streamlining of computers was already occurring for numerous other purposes.

Sorry, but it just doesn't work that way. Additionally, if you already have an existing thread on the exact same subject, there was no need to make this one. It just makes you look like something of a zealot

Actually this thread is to talk about Apollo, the other thread was to talk about the Computer used.

If you read that thread you'd learn about how Apollo made the transistor what it is!

Its called being on topic, here the topic is Fake or not fake..

Its pretty easy to see the difference..



If you read the last line of the OP

If you think you have evidence that proves Apollo was fake bring it to the table to discuss thanks!

Sorry, but saying that we would not type right now without Apollo is like saying no operating system would ever be developed without Bill Gates

The evolution of the transistor is the only reason why Bill gates had a job, right??

Apollo's success was the reason why we are on the internet today!

BTW the operating system comes from the development of the IBM 360 mainframe another decendant of NASA needs!

Also, during the Apollo missions we placed mirrors on the moon so that we could measure the distance between the moon and Earth with lasers for precise accuracy. Somehow though, according to nutjob conspiracy theorists, every scientific team around the globe that has used the mirrors is apparently just making it all up and playing along with the conspiracy.

Some people.

You are correct that the technology that was produced by NASA for the Apollo mission was and still is very important to not only computers but countless other electronic devices.

But to say that without the Apollo mission we would have never come up with said technology is reaching at best. And I'm not sure how this show of technology proves 100% that we landed on the moon (for the record I think we did).

I just don't see the correlation between this tech making the landings a 100% certainty for the skeptics out there.

I wonder if models or extra equipment of the electronics still work today.
Those TV cameras on the Moon's surface I'd like to examine.
See if there was anything inside.

Apollo 8 went around the moon and so did Apollo 13 in a
distressed mode.

Computers had to work to power guidance rockets.

The first transistors were used by the telephone companies.
By the onset of the bidding process to make the equipment
the integrated circuit was being made by Fairchild Camera for
commercial use and the military had Minuet Man parts and
much more for computer use.

I'm still on the ropes about wether the missions to the moon were faked or not. But one thing that maybe someone can shed some light on, is the Van Allen Radiation Belt (or belts) that surround the Earth. Less than a decade before the first 'Successful' trip to the moon, NASA claimed that we would need a spacecraft the size of the empire state building completely made of lead to pass through those radiation belts.. how did we go from that, to an Apollo landing in lesss than 10 years?

If we did land on the moon, why can't we see the remanence of the landing on the moon.

Our best telescopes can see 150 light years away, but can not focus on the moon--WTF!

This is like me claiming, 'You believed the moon landings happened, therefor you must work for NASA or the government."

Next in line is "Microwaves are the proof we went to the moon?"

Come on, you can do better than that.

I believe that once we got spacecraft past the Van Allen belts, we were able to see that the amount of radiation there was not enough to endanger astronauts during the time needed for a trip to the moon and back.

It was eleven years between the time that we first got a probe past the Van Allen belts and going to the moon.

Funny how no one brings to the table, except teslalyne, something to discuss.

Does anyone research technology?

Wow....to much tv for you!

Demand on technology is what I am trying to present here.

The idea that computers would be today, without apollo missions, of course they would have evolved but completely different!


Demands on chip designs, densities, fabrication techniques had the final say on what the CPU has become today.

During the 1960's the public got VER VERY FEW integrated cicuits, since the military and NASA bought 99 percent of them!

I would love to have the chance to evaluate some of the older designs like you have mentioned. The thinking that was placed into the technology was quite amazing. Just to see the evolution of our thinking from the late 1890's on is crazy!

Actually, William cooper claims they were both on mars and the moon in the 60s, because in the mid 50s the "bad humanoids" made a pact with the us governemnt for technology, instead of making a spiritual pact with the "good humanoids"

Look at the technology timeline in the usa, from 1900-now and you will see major technology jumps. I never heard about the apollo missions having anything to do with the major advancement in computer technology, but I do know the guy who invented the internet had nothing to do with apollo missions and nothing to do with linux, unix, windows, mac, etc.

They landed on the moon when they claimed to. MYTH BUSTERS PROVED IT ALSO

They had established colonies already according to william cooper who was murdered for revealing all the governemnet secret documents he had.

You are contradicting yourself... Make up your mind on what you want to accomplish with this thread and don't keep shuffling your feet because people do not agree with your ideas.

How in any way am I contradicting myself?

obviously you didn't read what I said....



Moores Law defends my position that Apollo made the computer into what it is today!
