It is only you and other NASA lovers who hold fast to this belief that Jarrah is intentially trying to decieve. Evidence of his errors is NOT evidence of deception on his behalf. This is what I don't dig about you NASA lovers... you make it personal.

and why did IMAX have to use water to shield the same type of film that supposedly made it to the moon and back when they filmed the ISS being built?


Shield from what?
I was just reading at the NASA site..
Radiation at the ISS altitude is supposed to be minimal as it is not high enough to reach the Van Halen Belt..,,


So the radiation belt does not reach the levels where Mercury, Gemini, Soyuz and Mir used to orbit and where the Shuttle and Space Station do so now. The early Russian Sputniks failed to discover the radiation belt because they too stayed in such low orbits and Explorers 1 and 3 only detected it because they were rather poorly controlled and rose above 1500 miles.

And what is photo doctoring? Levelling? Balancing? And what methods were avaliable then that could be effective and efficient for the task? I find the concept of doctoring to be too vague and wide to consider. No one seems to be able to agree on exactly what was doctored, how it was doctored, and the evidence for it.


I know the poster was refering to the NEW pics from the LRO that show the old landing sites..
So it's not a case of what methods were available then..They are CURRENT pics..

And the ones posted here HAVE been enhanced rather a lot..
ie: maximum resolution of LRO shots is quoted at 50cm/pixel.
the pics shown here were enhanced to around 15cm/pixel..

That doesn't make them fake but they have been enhanced dramatically..

Oh that makes more sense with the photos then.

I haven't looked at them mega closely, but I imagine it would be standard alogrithms/apps used to enhance those photos.

I imagine there will be future images anyway, but by then am guessing the story will have changed so that NASA got there before everyone else and left the equipment there. Until space travel becomes the norm there will always be people that doubt its existence.

It's like when people thought the platypus was a hoax.

And just for the record ... am not saying I totally approve of how sharp people can be in this thread. I'm pretty aware that people on both sides of this conversation can be sharp ... I just don't think Jarrah started the conversation on his best foot, and he does kind of invite and encourage negative attention with his attitude at times.

lol, I don't remember the platypus hoax..
Must of been before my time..Strange creature though I think it's cute..

On topic..No amount of pics of equipment on the moon will convince some of a manned mission..
I guess that's partially reasonable given that most of the debate revolves around whether man can stand the conditions, not machinery..

What the "enhanced" pics did was show paths supposidly made by the astronauts footprints..
I'd say that's where the use of enhanced pics are questioned..
Did the original pics show the same trails clearly enough to prove man walked on the moon?

I lean towards they did but enjoy the debate..
I've yet to see 100% undeniable proof despite what Weed says

Still digging through Wikipedia, Came across this and just had to share:


Item 12 - telescopes

12. Apollo astronauts took no telescopes with them to the moon.... First, I know of no reliable source that uses this as an argument that they didn't go to the Moon. Secondly, the reply doesn't make much sense. There was no room to take a large telescope, no allowance for the weight, and no time to use it. And the reason for putting a telescope in space is not to be 200,000 miles closer to something - it is to be above the atmosphere. Unless there are some reliable sources for this, I think it should be removed. Bubba73 (talk), 21:03, 28 May 2009 (UTC)

I went ahead and removed this part. First, I've never heard any reliable source say that the fact that they didn't take a telescope is evidence that they didn't go. Secondly, I don't follow the arguement that they didn't take a telescope is in any way evidence that they didn't go. Thirdly, the response is not accurate. Bubba73 (talk), 05:42, 2 June 2009 (UTC)

I agree with all of that. It should stay out unless someone finds a good source. Man with two legs (talk) 09:33, 2 June 2009 (UTC)

I'm sure I've read it as an argument of 'proof'. Apparently, packing a telescope is to be expected when visiting space and a lack of one is evidence enough that you weren't there. Kind of like going to the Grand Canyon and not taking your camera. Naturally it displays a basic lack of understanding of the purpose of the missions, and the costs and minimal value of taking a telescope to the moon. I'll have a look see if I can locate a cite. --Escape Orbit (Talk) 10:38, 2 June 2009 (UTC)

That was posted a day or two ago by an IP. I'm surprised they didn't complain that the crew failed to bring along tricorders and light-sabers. Baseball Bugs What's up, Doc? carrots 10:45, 2 June 2009 (UTC)

No excuse for that.

Directly from the LRO site Note that these pics were taken and released only a week or so after the probe reached orbit.

Yes, absolutely:

Uncalibrated, raw image from the LROC of the Apollo14 site:


Full image (it's large) here.

Similar images for Apollo 12 and Apollo 17. Those are all original images, no resolution-increasing deconvolution done on them.

Exactly, it is an IP address. All of the "pro-Jarrah" Wikipedia vandals, er, editors, tend to post as "anonymous," and are identified, per Wiki protocol, by their IP address. I admit I'm an idiot about these things, that's why I'm asking for help.:


Are you asking members to trace IP's for you.??


Nobody asked, I did it anyway. (Not much you can do with an IP from ages ago, unless its static, and this one isn't)
So all I can say: Its japanese. So there is a fair chance the user was at the time in japan as well.

From what I can tell, it's that he ignored a lot of physics, tested for moon environment in an earth environment, and was in general a bit silly with his presumptions and video editing. You can believe that the landings were a hoax, but this guy does not support it.

Here are two quick examples proving he is a fraud and a liar:

Thefirst one is one where he uses a "perspective expert" to analyze an Apollo photo and declare it fake. It turns out the "expert" is actually his teacher who admits in an email to not being an expert, but only helping her pupil out in doing a project.

The second one is a video where he consciously ignores an important qualification from a table he uses to make some incorrect calculations.

There are literally hundreds of examples, but his videos can be extremely repitious and confusing, so if you come across one that looks odd, give us the link and we'll have a look.

Thanks for the pic Tom & Nat..

Hi Peeps...

Here is what I like about Jarrah... contrary to what some NASA lovers will have you believe, not only does young Jarrah admit to making mistakes, but he also creates quite cool video rebuttals to the criticisms of his films.

This to me is a very mature way to conduct ones arguments... rather than the 'I know better than you' way many on ATS like to proceed.

This film here talks about IMAX protecting its film from radiation using bags of water. Jarrah readily corrects some errors and admits to his faults... y'all you should learn something from that.



Has this one been 'debunked'?




Well this is why I am also curious about where in space these astronauts conducted their deep space EVAs and how was the film in the CM, and on the moon for that matter, was protected?


Apollo 17 CSM pilot Ron Evans performs a deep space EVA (en route to Earth) to retrieve film cartridges. 17 December 1972.






Operated in orbit 69 miles above the lunar surface, the optical bar panoramic camera produced stereo photography covering about 1.9 million square miles, or about 15 percent of the Moon’s surface. Each photographic frame recorded an area 211 miles wide by 13.5 miles long with such fine detail that an object smaller than 6 feet (2m) in size can be examined and its position pinpointed.


So did they take pictures of the LM and astronauts on the moon?
And how does the LRO photos compare?









The exposed film was retrieved from the SIM bay during the early portion of the trans-Earth coast.




In A, the astronaut (CMP) is shown egressing through the CM hatch. During the EVA, all three astronauts are exposed to the vacuum of space and hence all must wear their spacesuits. In B, the CMP has moved to the vicinity of the SIM bay and is preparing to remove the film cassettes from the Lunar Mapping and Panoramic Camera's. He anchors himself to the spacecraft by inserting his feet into special foot restraints, termed ‘golden slipper’, because they were formerly gold coloured. In C, the EVA astronaut is seen removing the film from the mapping and stellar camera’s in one cassette. Another astronaut (usually the LMP) remains ‘standing’ in the Command Module main hatch, from where he documents the film retrieval procedure with photographs and verbal descriptions. From here he also assists the EVA astronaut during his transfers to the SIM bay and passing the retrieved film cassettes to the third astronaut (usually the CDR) who has remained within the Command Module. The film cassettes are safely stowed within the CM for their return to Earth.



Below is a training photograph of Apollo 17 CMP Ron Evans passing a Panoramic Camera film cassette to LMP Harrison H. Schmitt.


history.nasa.gov...




Evaluation of Ionising Radiation (X-rays) on
Ektachrome ISO 160 Professional 120 Colour
Reversal Film

Further reading


6) CONCLUSION
Even a modest radiation dose to the film (5 rem and
greater) would produce significant reduction of
contrast and image density in the resulting Ektachrome
ISO 160T transparencies.


So what shielded the film?

Compare this to the Russians:


The camera carried 40 frames of temperature- and radiation-resistant 35 mm isochrome film.

So what?
The photos could have been in NASA's possession all the time.
NASA sent plenty of probes to scan the surface of the moon.
They could have even used observatories like the Hubble.
Its still evidence from NASA and not third parties.

Russians sent probes to the moon, where are their pics of the LM etc?

If the Soviets could have outed the Americans having hoaxed the moon landings, they certainly would have done it. They would have loved to have embarrassed the Americans.

But why would the Indians and the Japanese scientists confirm the American landing sites if there was no evidence? I'll trust the Japanese and Indian scientists over Jarrah White rubbing a balloon against his head.
