Have a go yourself young man, it is a fascinating subject no, this aspect of the fraud ? My favorite, the LOST BIRD stuff.

Multiple Apollo Fraud threads are appropriate and useful
I like to work with multiple threads. Say this topic, "well after the fact transparently and ever so contrived covering", is something that I do not post on for a while, and I have been active on another thread, say the "PERP LIST". And furthermore, say I come across something new and exciting as regards the topic of astronaut "well after the fact transparently and ever so contrived covering". I don't want in that case to start posting in the PERP LIST thread about the subject of astronaut well after the fact transparently and ever so contrived covering, so instead I post in the thread of that very same subject and so forth and so on.
Apollo is WAY TOO BROAD to work in a single thread. That really makes no sense.
Tonight I was posting some on the "Bart Sibrel is a PERP" thread . That doesn't belong here on the "well after the fact transparently and ever so contrived covering" thread, only unless I might want to use it as a bit of evidence to suggest/show/demonstrate some aspect of Apollo fraud generically.edit on 27-5-2012 by decisively because: spellingedit on 27-5-2012 by decisively because: added quotes
You my friend are not aware of the basic facts as regards the Apollo 11 narrative now are you ?
You did not answer my very simple question
You did not answer my simple question. Explain what happened to H. David Reed. He NEVER EXPECTED TO HAVE TO CALCULATE A REVERSE RADAR SOLUTION.
First of all, neither video explains why Reed was not provided with fairly accurate landing site coordinates when he arrived on duty the morning of 07/21/1969.
Characterized by a narrow, often ostentatious concern for book learning and formal rules: a pedantic attention to details.
Coordinates are given by NASA in both Decimal Degrees and Degrees Minutes Seconds
6.0 LUNAR FIXED REFERENCE FRAME
Two slightly different reference systems are commonly used to orient the lunar body-fixed coordinate system. One is the Mean Earth/Polar Axis (ME) system that will be used at all times for PDS archival products. The other is the axis of figure system, also called the Principal Axis (PA) system, which may be used internally to the SOCs and LRO instrument teams for specific applications. These reference systems are described below.
6.1 MEAN EARTH / POLAR AXIS LUNAR REFERENCE SYSTEM
The Mean Earth/Polar Axis (ME) system defines the z-axis as the mean rotational pole. The Prime Meridian (0˚ Longitude) is defined by the mean Earth direction. The intersection of the lunar Equator and Prime Meridian occurs at what can be called the Moon’s “mean sub-Earth point”. The concept of a lunar “sub-Earth point” derives from the fact that the Moon’s rotation is tidally locked to the Earth. The actual sub-Earth point on the Moon varies slightly due to orbital eccentricity, inclination, and other factors. So a “mean sub-Earth point” is used to define
the point on the lunar surface where Longitude equals 0˚. This point does not coincide with any prominent crater or other lunar surface feature. LRO instrument teams shall deliver data to the PDS with planetocentric coordinates in the ME system only. This is consistent with heritage PDS datasets like those from Clementine. Using coordinates in the ME system is consistent with the recommendations of the IAU/IAG Working Group
on Cartographic Coordinates and Rotational Elements of the Planets and Satellites. The ME system with planetocentric coordinates shall also be adopted by the LRO Project and instrument teams for the purposes of operations planning, observational targeting, geographic identification of lunar landforms, and inter-mission communications.
Planetocentric Longitude is measured from the Prime Meridian (0˚ Longitude) toward the East (to the right), in the direction of rotation for a prograde body, with the Longitude values increasing from 0˚ toward 360˚. Conversion to lunar map and image products that use the planetocentric ME system with the +180˚ East / -180˚ West convention is easily performed with the appropriate arithmetic.
Planetocentric Latitude is the angle between the equatorial plane and a vector from the center of mass to the point on the surface. Planetocentric Latitude is measured from 0˚ at the Equator to 90˚ at either pole, and is defined as positive in the northern hemisphere and negative in the southern hemisphere. Planetocentric North is in the hemisphere of the north pole of the Ecliptic.
6.2 PRINCIPAL AXIS LUNAR REFERENCE SYSTEM
The Principal Axis (PA) system is a lunar body-fixed rotating coordinate system whose axes are defined by the principal axes of the Moon. Due to the fact that the Moon is not truly a synchronously rotating triaxial ellipsoid, the PA and ME rotation axes do not coincide. The axes of the two systems differ by about 1 km at the lunar surface. The PA coordinate system is especially useful for dynamical studies in areas such as gravity field determination and lunar laser ranging (LLR). LRO instrument teams may use either the ME or PA reference systems internally. However, data will be delivered to the PDS with coordinates in the ME system only.
Data for any epoch can be oriented into the PA system by using the current Jet Propulsion Laboratory (JPL) ephemeris, referred to as a Developmental Ephemeris (DE). DE421 is the ephemeris selected by the LRO Data Working Group (LDWG) for the LRO mission at the time of this writing, but the LDWG could adopt a successor DE for the LRO mission in the future. Data can be oriented into the ME system by applying the rotational difference to that system appropriate to the given ephemeris. Data can also be oriented to these systems by directly tying the data to previously established reference frames in the given system (e.g., LLR or image-based reference frames in either system).
I see when pushed you had no response to my claims as regards the Reed/Apollo Mission Report FATAL INTERNAL INCOHERENCY.
