Wasn't a fisheye. It was wide thought. As seen from the photo

Completely untrue:


The footage brought back and the the technical problems will reveal we could not have made it back in 1969.


You are likely young? (I'm guessing).

Go live a life, get some life experiences......I suggest learning to fly, as one example. Because, the Astronauts were pilots.

Understanding that world of aviation will help you to understand them.

Do more research....just LOOK at all the information out there that relates to Apollo!!!

To presume that it is all "faked" is simply ridiculous....no sane person would 'argue' for that.

Here:

Apollo Lunar Surface Journal

Apollo Image Gallery

From the above (^ ^ ^)....the Apollo Hasselblad Magazines (full magazines only, scanned by JSC from original film rolls)

The Apollo Flight Journal


(Interrupting myself to point out that those sites are NOT run by NASA....these are aficionados of space flight, huge fans, who have put all of this together. These are people who have already done the "heavy lifting" research.....it is now there on a silver platter for the rest of us to enjoy. AND, bear in mind.....these people would have spoken out immediately 'IF' they had found any irregularities!!)

Apollo 11 Lunar Surface Journal

Apollo 12 Lunar Surface Journal

Apollo 14 Lunar Surface Journal

Apollo 15 Lunar Surface Journal

Apollo 16 Lunar Surface Journal

Apollo 17 Lunar Surface Journal


When visiting those links, there are more, and more, and more links contained within......a HUGE repository of information.

I challenge any "hoax believer" to go out and research properly, then come back and claim that ALL OF THAT is "faked"......to such incredible detail....with no inconsistencies. There are none.....although there WERE "mistakes" made during Apollo, as would occur in any such endeavor (heck, every airline flight has "mistakes" made on-board by either the pilots of Flight Attendants......true fact, but a "mistake" does not always mean "total disaster". Spilling a drink is "mistake".....but, this is life as a Human. Apollo is full of such examples of HUMANITY being Human....)

I think that is asking a bit much of feeble minded individuals.

It is much easier to just say "NOPE. FAKE." and ignore reality by basing their 'theory' with hundreds of assumptions and NO facts.

The Apollo 11 Moon Landing Site --Now Seen in Unprecedented Detail


www.dailygalaxy. com

The Lunar Reconnaissance Orbiter Camera snapped its best look yet of the Apollo 11 landing site on the moon. The image, which was released on March 7, 2012, even shows the remnants of Neil Armstrong and Buzz Aldrin's historic first steps on the surface around the Lunar Module.This image of the Apollo 11 landing site captured from just 24 km (15 miles) above the surface provides LRO's best look yet at humanity’s first venture to another world.

From the site

Lunokhod 2 rover parked facing southeast with the lid still open.


Is it just me or does the rover also look like the wheels are gone and it is up on cinder blocks?

We will have to agree to disagree, but the great thing is that finally this has become and acceptable subject to debate, which is progress!

Maybe if you would read his post, you would see he linked to NASAs Mars HiRISE. He's the one gasping for air...


Why are you still commenting? You have contributed the least in this thread out of everyone here. Absolutely nothing, actually.

What you are doing is called "trolling"


edit on 3-16-12 by paradox because: (no reason given)


Hi paradox,

Chill out brother, Please show me what I said that makes you call me a troll.
I hope that is not like calling me a liar in NASA code.
Any way in case you overlooked it again. (trying to provoke are't you?)
I was talking about photos in another thread that I thought were not to good.
I know his picture was different so what. You should know what I was talking about you were in that other thread if I am not mistaken.
In the future please address me with a factual quote so it won't take me so long to reply
thanks

I think it would be great if we could just talk like civil human beings, just a healthy debate. No subject should be beyond discussion.

For example I don't believe Alien UFO's have visited Earth, but I am happy to discuss it with believers without calling them delusional.

Did anyone address what Neil Armstrong said in 1994?
'one of truth's protective layers' it is never dealt with by moon landing believers..

Hi Xxtro,
Your post brings some need humor to this tense disscusion.LOL
And I think it was parked just around the corner from the Apollo Theater.
(not really)
Why are some folks so determined to convert others thoughts and ideas with there own perception of imagery? One sees what they see and they own that.
Thanks for the chuckle

"agree to disagree" all you wish....but, in the end, YOU will be wrong.

Sorry.

Care to check out the vast amounts of evidence that support the reality of the Space Program?

Care to find any flaws or inconsistencies? (not the usual crap, either)...

Care to come into reality?

There were (and still are, alive today) a LOT, a LOT, a LOT of people involved with Apollo.

I would suggest a trip to your local library (if you have one nearby...I DO hope so!!).

A few titles of interest, that I have enjoyed:

"Rocket Men"

"Failure Is Not an Option"

"The Last Man on the Moon"

(Just to suggest 3....there are many, many, many more....but, I have read all of those that I suggested.....).....

Have a LOOK at this then

This image first posted by Jra shows the Apollo 17 landing site.



The top half is a still from the DAC film as they left the moon so was taken almost 40 years ago, the bottom half was taken by the LRO both match.

That DAC film has been available since Apollo 17 flew back.

You can use the data from the LRO images the resolution is given to check sizes and distances this stuff was documented by NASA if you have photoshop or the free image software called GIMP these have tools to measure the number of pixels so you can check distances/sizes etc.

You can also look here at this video at 3:36 he overlays the NASA traverse map showing lander position relative to craters in the area etc it matches the LRO picture.



The pictures the astronauts took on the surface can also be compared to check positions of equipment etc.

What more evidence do you need!

You are trolling because you are doing nothing but aimlessly rambling. Yes, we get that you "dont like the pictures"

You have made your point, yet you keep making comments with absolutely no substance.

You are trolling. Not cool.

I realize that this was not directed towards me......

First things first:


Did anyone address what Neil Armstrong said in 1994?
'one of truth's protective layers' it is never dealt with by moon landing believers..


THAT (^ ^ ^) is yet another insulting distraction perpetrated by the "hoax believers"...sad, so very, very sad.

Neil was aghast (as I, and others are) at the short-sightedness of the American political system, when it comes to space exploration and specifically, the FUNDING for those endeavors.

It was painfully clear what he meant!!




I think it would be great if we could just talk like civil human beings, just a healthy debate. No subject should be beyond discussion.


Sure. Agree.

Carry on.....


For example I don't believe Alien UFO's have visited Earth, but I am happy to discuss it with believers without calling them delusional.


well.....this is a VERY different topic......it is best dealt with appropriately, in other Forums....

They had a 60mm lens standard on Hasselblads is 70/80mm so wasn't that wide angle.

And Proudbird.. If we did get to the moon, it should be a source of shame not pride, you really should read 'Dark Side of the Moon: Wernher von Braun, the Third Reich, and the Space Race'

Hi magma
I agree with you.
There was also a reporter, that asked one of the astronauts "What was it like up there" or something to the same nature.
The astronaut said, "Unbelieveable, just unbekievable".
When it comes to the photos though, I just can't make out anything I could describe as much more than some dots and lines on the surface of the moon.
Except the one photo I looked at, the craters looked upside down. There were none of shadows in them that you usually see on moon pictures. Could be lighting. Who knows?
later

This is the review of the book about Wernher von Braun, that you mentioned.

The "morality" of using a (maybe) former Nazi is of course worthy of discussion.

The FACT that von Braun was a genius? And, was instrumental in the success of Apollo??

Do you really want to open that can of worms??

Go up there, and I will point out the ORIGINAL VECTOR for all this "Apollo hoax" nonsense....

....it is BILL KAYSING!

Bill Kaysing is the progenitor of this stupidity. He was a flunky with North American Aviation....well, not a "flunky"....a "technical writer"....no, not even that.....he was a proof-reader for the technical publications that were eventually published by his employer!!

This guy is as far from a "rocket scientist" as a cat is from an elephant!


Bill Kaysing (after he was fired from his job) was bitter, and on a dare, a bar bet, he devised this scam.......he was so upset at the Vietnam "war" (very hot topic, at that time....those who are too young to have lived through that time just have NO IDEA!!).

Bill Kaysing wanted to "get back at the Government"....so, he cooked up this hoax idea.

Just do the research, you will learn a LOT about Bill Kaysing.....is is called, by many, the "GrandFather" of the "Moon hoax conspiracy"....

( AND, he was a total loon......along with one of his "fans".....Ralph Rene'.....look him up, too!!!
)
