Here is a picture showing the locations of alleged moon landing sites:
Can anyone please provide me with high resolution photos of the sites showing NASA artifacts left behind?
And please no grainy 0.5 megapixel crap.
I mean we have google earth, google sky even google mars...why the hell don't we have a high resolution google moon app??? This reeks of a conspiracy
A thought occured to me earlier today; the infamous shot of an American astronaut hitting a golf ball on the moon. What was the temperature on the
moon that day. If the temperature was really cold like -100 C or colder wouldn't the golf ball have been so brittle that it shattered into hundreds
of pieces?? Anyone remember their highschool science teacher dipping a balloon into liquid nitrogen and then shattering the ballon like glass all over
If it were to be proven that the moon landings were hoaxes, wouldn't this be one of the greatest lies of all time??
If everything "reeks of conspiracy" to you before you know anything about it, is reasoning and evidence likely to change your mind?
The "grainy" .4 meter/pixel stuff is the newest and greatest available.
Here is something for you to try:
Using Google Earth's Moon setting, zoom down to where you see pixels.
Measure the pixel.
Whatever resolution your were expecting is not what is actually there. The current moon images used by Google earth as the default is something close
to 100 meters/pixel from what I can tell. Whereas the largest man made object on the moon is the Saturn S-IVB third stage rocket boosters which went
"splat" is only 6.6 meters in diameter. That means you won't see anything man-made.
There are newer images becoming available on Google Earth taken from a newish (2009) orbiting camera using your "grainy" .4 meters/pixel resolution.
These include some of the Apollo landing sites and two of the third stage booster craters. Those are
to you and anyone else for Google
Earth users or simply by going to the NASA site and downloading for yourself.
Of course, that won't help because you already have it set in your mind that if you actually see what is there, then the only explanation you will
accept is that the image has been faked. For you, the discussion is futile.
But for others:
Here is a Apollo 14 S-IVB impact crater-- the crumpled S-IVB booster visible in the center of it.
Finally: Earth images are high resolution because of several needs which justify the cost of satellites providing regular imaging. Those needs do
not exist in regard to the moon-- those person are not needing proof that the moon landings happened, nor are they interested in using resources to
find the hatches in the craters through which the Altarians launch their mother-ships. Besides, if we actually did need an image of a mother-ship
hatch inside of a crater, there are hundreds of "authoritative" and "reliable" conspiracy blog sites which will provide you with images of these--
completely free of NASA technology so you can trust them.
