The May 21 1961 Life Magazine featured an article allegedly written by Alan Shepard himself. The article is clearly not written by Shepard. That is an aside which should probably be covered by others in the appropriate thread. Take a look at the National Geographic article alleged to have been written by David Scott about his Apollo 15 adventure. This is another obvious forged composition. A thread dedicated to this subject of counterfeit astronaut writings may be helpful to our cause.
Actually, it was going to be thirty days of taking pictures and spying. MOL was mostly a manned military reconaissance platform. (That’s why it was in polar orbit, where you passed over all of the earth’s surface in the space of twenty-four hours.) Anyway, over three years they got seventeen pilots into MOL, mostly Air Force, but also a couple of Navy guys and a Marine. Flights were originally supposed to start in 1968, then kept getting pushed back because of budget and design problems. In the spring of 1969 it looked as though all the technical problems had been licked, but flights were still three years off. Suddenly—I think it was in the course of one week in early June—MOL got canceled. The story was that President Nixon himself had killed it for financial reasons. (MOL had cost over $1 billion by that point.) NASA had the Apollo Applications project going. What did the country need two space stations for?
When one pauses to realize the Manned Orbiting Lab was just aU2 going faster and higher. Faster and higher even than an SR-71. Well then you get to coming to terms with the notion that there was no way in all get out they'd give up on the MOL and actually cancel it. Of course they built it and of course it was useful. I have a great idea. It just fell on top of me. One of the ways to study Mercury through SkyLab and Shuttle is to study U2 and SR-71. What is it those platforms could do that KH's couldn't do ? Real time activities of course and then there must be things beyond that. It's my very first original idea in the field of Apollo studies. Sure they were up to more than that. But the reconn activities are U2 and SR-71 on ste.roids. Stroke of genius if I do say so meeself
The Russians claimed they had the most important Alamaz images in the hands of their managers in 2 hours. Select photos were transmitted. Not real time but better than the SR-71. I think they must have been photo imaging from any and all platforms. Abrahamson was an MOLnaut and he headed SDI. SDI must be a cover for something else altogether.

To think they went to the moon is completely rediculous. It's so proposterous. How would they get threw the van allen belt? Stanley Kubrick had a moon set done at that time which he was using for a movie. He's the one that let them use it for there fake moon landing. They needed to also appear to be winning the space race during the cold war. Also I seen the luner lander in the DC air and space museum. It's a stage prop. It's not real. You can tell. That was the biggest hoax ever done. Still everyone believes they went there. Freakin morons.
Been down this road so many times buddy! so come on what questions you
