Your arguments from ignorance are simply stunning in their audacity? (and utter failure.....)...
The pesky issue of the lunar lander technology being completely incapable of doing what they said it did.
Oh? "completely incapable", eh? Wow, well with 'evidence' that solid, then there is no more room for discussion, is there?
....unless, the claim of "completely incapable" is utter hogwash? Which, it is.
Oh, but it gets better:
Inexplicable absences of delays in radio transmissions.....
Another failure of an assertion.
Listen starting about 0:25 seconds. Just so you understand, the recording is being made at Houston, here on Earth. When Charlie drops his hammer,
(That's Charlie muttering "Ah, rats!
", the Astronaut working CapCom (in Houston) sees it on the live TV video.....that signal, and the radio
transmission from Charlie's voice-activated microphone of course come to Earth at the same speed of light.
So, CapCom says, "That's alright, uh, I do that all the time."
(you can hear the beeps, those are the
). Then, CapCom adds: "Usually I have my thumb in the way."
But, listen carefully as Charlie exerts himself, while trying to pick up the hammer from the ground. When he breathes heavily, it triggers his
voice-activated mic.....and, you can hear the end of what CapCom said (which you heard him say first, here on Earth) as it is only a second and one
half later reaching Charlie, and playing in his helmet speakers.
You can hear the faint "....thumb in the way.
" @0:45 to 0:46 seconds.
Proof of the distance, all that way on the Moon, during that live broadcast. There are many, many more examples. Perhaps it was a ridiculous
"conspiracy" site that gave you such bad information?? It is a good idea to validate their claims, with your own research.
Here, this animated GIF has the bean of yellow "light" moving at a scale speed, to fit the size of the image....it represents the true speed of light,
for that Earth-Moon distance:
(It's wide, have to use the scroll feature)
... and zero accommodation for micro-metreroids and radiation while on the moon's surface (for days! LOL).
What "radiation"?? Is there a nuclear power plant accident up there, or something?? If you mean the Sun? Well, walk outside during the day time.
There, now YOU are getting "radiation" too....about as much as they got.
Few people today are aware that all transmissions and telemetry allegedly coming from the moon was relayed through Naval ships at sea and was
entirely manipulated and controlled easily because of this. These were called the Apollo Instrumentation Ships and there were a lot of them. The
Vandenberg, the Arnold, as well as the Mercury, the Redstone, and the Watertown as well as others. This answers the critics on how telemetry was
"cooked" so those in Houston and Cape Kennedy were misled.
And, already refuted in a post above....just repeated because it is so comically incorrect. Another 'zinger' of a lie from a "conspiracy" site,
It isn't rocket science.
LOL!! Oh, but it is! Man, the irony.....it IS science, and very advanced usually....little wonder that those without the proper education to
understand it can't get off square one.
BTW....that video clip I chose was brief, just so it didn't take a lot of people's time to watch. But, is that something that YOU would "plan" if YOU
were "hoaxing" a Lunar EVA video??
What would be the point of doing it like that, "if" it were "faked"?? Dropping the hammer, having trouble getting the core sample tube into the hard
Common sense seems to have left the building.......
