There is no "radiation problem":
What makes me question the validity of Apollo was the radiation problem....
That's total hogwash.....not for such short trips, lasting a mere week, or two at most.
i never had to rely on the photographic evidence.
What a crying shame.
About Hubble: NO, the Hubble cannot resolve items the size of the Apollo hardware. It simply does not have that capacity. The LROC (the camera that
was part of the LCROSS experiment) is currently in orbit, and is still photographing the Moon's surface, and acquiring more and more precise imaging.
Down to 0.5 meters per pixel. This is more than enough to get quality images of Apollo equipment, especially the Descent Stages, still there.
And, of course, this has been shown.....it's everywhere on the Web.
There is simply no excuse for the "Moon Hoax" nonsense to exist, anymore.
(eta): Never was, actually. The "Hoax" idea was made-up.....concocted decades ago by a disgruntled ex-North American Aviation employee (NAA was one
of the Apollo contractors).
Bill Kaysing. He claimed to be an "engineer" at NAA, but in fact was a proof-reader for the technical documents that they published, about
their projects. He made-up the entire "Hoax" out of anger.....anger at NAA (and by extension, NASA) but primarily, anger at the United States
Government.....because he was violently opposed to the Vietnam conflict....and thought this would be his way to "embarrass" the U.S. Government.
So, from one crackpot (Kaysing), it took only a few others (notably, a complete moron named Ralph Rene') to keep spreading the idiocy....to the tiny,
tiny fringe minority who couldn't (or wouldn't) do the science for themselves, and check these men's alleged "facts" and claims.
