Think on my discoveries. NACA from beginning is part of the US military.
Edgar M. Cortright moves from NACA meteorological satellites to lunar and planetary program chief.
This is just a dumb shuttle game. One NACA military program is given a NASA front. And NASA provides a cover for these scientist soldiers.
The whole thing is outrageous.
Cortright headed the commission that investigated the Apollo 13 theater.
These men should be jailed for life. Every one of them.
How is that for some fantasy?
This is not true and is off the topic.
My saying is that in Europe it is common for us to speak about the moon landing as questionable generally and many of us that live or have lived in Europe grew up questioning the truth of it. not like in US where people are too gullible and get suckered by tv propaganda daily.

I already posted that. NACA was military. Google NACA for yourself then. All the first military satellites were launched under the auspices of NASA. This is not in question. Show me where one military satellite in the 1960s was not launched by NASA or allied institution such as JPL. You cannot, not a one.
Coronas were launched by a Thor-Agena rocket, which used a Thor first stage and an Agena booster (which served as the second stage of the rocket lifting the Corona into orbit). With the implementation of the J-1 camera system in 1963, a Thorad rocket was used for the first stage, leading to large improvements in launch reliability. Later launches were made using the Thrust Augmented Thor (TAT). Maneuvering rockets were also added to the satellite beginning in 1963. These were different from the attitude stabilizing thrusters which had been incorporated from the beginning of the program. Corona orbited in very low orbits to enhance resolution of its camera system. But at perigee (the lowest point in the orbit), Corona endured drag from the Earth's atmosphere. In time, this could cause its orbit to decay and force the satellite to re-enter the atmosphere prematurely. The new maneuvering rockets were designed to boost Corona into a higher orbit, and lengthen the mission time even if low perigees were used. For use during unexpected crises, the National Reconnaissance Office (NRO) kept a Corona in "R-7" status, meaning ready for launch in seven days. By summer 1965 NRO was able to maintain Corona for launch within one day.

NACA is military, you tell me different? NASA is NACA, no? You tell me different? Most young people in Europe know Apollo is made up.
Most young people in Europe do heroin, too.

Thor-Agena is a military rocket. What planet do you live on? Since when is a Thor rocket a civilian design?
