The issue that was raised by the OP, that the space suits used on the Apollo mission were somehow inadequate, was completely settled by page three.
The following 12 pages have chiefly been dominated by people expressing an unsupported opinion, then saying "get over it. There have been a few
posters who have added painfully faulty attempts at reason: "If they were capable of faking 9/11, they were capable of faking the Moon Landing."
Sorry, but an unproven supposition cannot prove another supposition. Try again.
More recently, the thread has been hijacked by people who simply ignore the OP altogether, which was about the space suits. I will address these off
topic comments very briefly for the benefit of those who are unaware of this thread:
I will not bother to cite sources for the following, because they are all contained in the above thread.
It is true that the head of NASA photography department once worked for CIA. Why not? NASA needed the best aerial photography interpreter it could
find to analyze the photographs being sent back by space probes, including the manned missions. Where would you expect them to look? Why does Sayanara
not mention that prior to working for CIA, Underwood was an aerial photography expert in the military? Because it reveals the real reason he was
chosen: he was an aerial photography expert. Where did you expect NASA to find an aerial photography expert? Campbell's Soup?
As for Ed Nixon: he went to work for Bellcom in the mid-1950's. Are you suggesting he was planted there half a decade before NASA even existed as part
of a devious long term plan? Or was it just a case of the government turning to a company in the appropriate field of the private sector that had the
most connections with the administration? Even if there was nepotism involved, and you have not proven that there was, you have merely suggested it,
that does not mean the Moon Landings were a hoax.
The doctor chosen to select the first astronauts had security clearance? I'm shocked. In 1960, they should have hired a card carrying member of the
Communist Party in order to look progressive.
Finally, the "missing" telemetry tapes, the gift that keeps on giving. You know perfectly well that they were re-used due to the flood of data being
received by LandSat. Moon Hoaxers love to bring the "missing tapes" up because it looks "suspicious," but they never explain what they would do with
them if they got their hands on them. Let's say NASA found them and dumped 70 cardboard boxes of vintage magnetic tape reels on your driveway. How
would you read them? A team of electronics geeks had to scour the country looking for bits and pieces to reconstruct the tape reader they needed to
reprocess the Lunar Orbiter tapes they found. Do you expect anyone to believe that you would do the same? Why? Even if you could read the tapes, could
you make sense of them? They contain telemetry. They would sound like that squacking noise old dial up modems used to make. And if you could decode
the signals, what information would it contain? The astronauts' heart beats and galvanic skin response, the temperature of the cryogenic storage
cells, the attitude of the spacecraft relative to its gyro platform.... Are you in a better position to interpret this data, which incidentally, was
also recorded on paper and is probably still available on microfilm, than the doctors and engineers who monitored it all in real time and reviewed the
important parts later?
You see, this is where the Moon Hoax always falls apart. In order to make the "scam" work, NASA had to hire real engineers to build and launch a
rocket capable of delivering a payload to the Moon. It had to be the size of a thirty six story building and actually fly. Millions of people would
watch it live, so you couldn't fake it with a model on a wire. Same thing for the spacecraft. The people at Grumman would get suspicious if they were
asked to make the LM out of plywood. The Command Modules are now all on public display; if you've ever seen one, you would know they are not made out
of cardboard. Everything had to really work. Now, I ask you, why would anyone spend all that time and money on a complicated system that could
actually fly people to the Moon, then not use it for its intended purpose? Well?
