lol, love the polite sarcasm.
We checked, and Richard Gordon is not the name of my Father`s late Astronaut friend.
I did also mention that he was in space to the Moon but not one of the Astronauts that actually was on the Moon.
When I talked to my Father very early this morning, he did not recall ever knowing Dick`s Mother`s Maiden name.
It was a different time back then. Even when I was young. At least where I mostly grew up in. It would have been considered extremely impolite to
call an elder by there 1st name and probably even more so to ask the Maiden name of someone.
But he was known as Dick Dagg.
I recruited 2 internet friend`s help in the searching on him.
At 1st I also thought the name could have been Richard Gordon, as my Father at one time worked for a Mr. Gordon. But my Father said no. And Dick
Dagg, as I stated was not one of the Astronauts that actually made a Moon landing.
I know there are 6 Astronauts listed as landing on the Moon when in fact only 5 did as one was not well enough `to actually go. Yet he is still
mentioned. That in itself is a curiosity.
The only Dick, or Richard my friends and I found was a Dick Sorenson. He looks in the photo of him, as I recalled my Father`s friend and he did also
die under mysterious circumstances.
There is not a lot of information on him as I said.
I also know that there are many Astronauts who have traveled in space as far as the Moon without actually landing on the Moon. The Article is in, The
If you check it out, they do not list MOST of the Astronauts names unless they either landed on the moon or they did something so small they only
endorse certain commercials or may have written books or articles. But if they did, they must have still kept their true knowledge to themselves,
maybe in fear for themselves or their families lives.
But I am still not certain the one small article is of him as we never knew his Mother`s maiden name, but if I DO manage to reach any one of the small
amount of extended family, I will do my best to confirm it is actually my Father`s friend Dick in the article.
I am unsure if Sorenson was my Father`s friend`s Mother`s Maiden name.
However, there HAD been a big Parade at the time in his honor for returning from a Space Expedition. We DO know for sure that he WAS indeed an
However, he did not show up at the Parade put on in his honor, and we do not fully understand why. No one we know of is.
We also do not know what other things he could have been involved in but one of `Dick`s other friends, Astronomer Bob McCormac who left the town for
the United States, specifically for NASSA at the same time, may know a lot more than what `Dick,`told my Father. But we have not seen or heard from
Bob since I was about 14.
I will again recruit my 2 friends to help me with research on Bob McCormac and see what we can find on him, if he is still alive, if his memory is
still amazing, etc If so, I am sure he will remember me He might even give me some extra information if he can safely do so.
Now that worries me slightly as, if there is anything of a conspiracy nature and he does tell me, I`m not sure on issues of safety or if it is
something that has already been let go given the showing of the documentary of the making of the movie, " Moon Rising."
As I stated in the opening of my post, I did not make this post to make any claims or to disclaim anything. It is answers I seek.
Maybe I might or could have ended up having someone who actually DOES know at least some of the answers, and WOULD shed some extra light on this. It
was a hope, but it looks like it is becoming extinguished already.
But whatever you come up with, I do hope it is a little better than the Richard Gordon one as I already read up on him and know him to still be alive.
Plus I was rather hoping others might have some ideas or even know something.
And as I said, I do not know if it is ALL truth about the Moon, only that I believe it to be so, though I still have many questions of why it took
film makers to make the discovery. But the one`s who discovered this said that whoever worked for NASSA regarding Moon photos and more, said he
believes that that person or those persons made the blacking out of what to was not be seen with some kind of loop hole, possibly in the hopes that
someone intelligent enough or photo/film gifted enough to uncover what was under the blacking out of the photos and films of the Moon.
I would like to point out yet again, why is the other side of the Moon such a secret? Maybe this IS from the other side and that may be the reasons
we do not see anything. There are many theories of this all over the internet. If you really cannot find them, I think I have them all book
It was expected for this to be torn up, but hope no ban
Thank you though
