Why should there be objects floating around though?
Every time I point out the facts (no floating objects in the A15 tv press conference) DJW keeps posting the Apollo8 "home movies" which has all the
floating flashlights and stuff. He seems to think that the A8 video from 1968 refutes the A15 video from 1971. But my view is this: there are no
floating objects in the A15 video @ 270 and the video itself strikes me as being a bit of a magic trick, or a TV trick. No floating objects anywhere
can be found.
Have you watched the entire A15 trans-earth press conference video at 270? This is the video that Richard Orloff omitted from his official NASA
timeline? There is not a single floating object (except Dave Scott bouncing up & down). Do you believe a NASA historian would make such a glaring
If you look at the Orloff transcript, he details the Worden EVA (at 241) with great detail. It disturbs me, in a historical sense, that Richard Orloff
totally omits this trans earth TV press conference at 270 entirely.
Then, in the A15 trans-earth press conference video the astronauts answered questions from reporters on the ground and the Genesis Rock was a topic of
discussion. This video is historically important because it is the video where the "Genesis Rock" gets the official nickname.
As DJW has pointed out, there was a newspaper clipping from the Spokane newspaper which indicated that Sample Bag 196 would be opened on Friday. My
question is this: Why did the astronauts, David Scott and Jim Irwin, rush down to the LRL on Weds. night to see the rock?
If we are to trust the official record, these astronauts have placed the Genesis Rock into Sample Bag 196. David Scott has a good memory. Everybody in
the world knows that the Genesis Rock was placed in Sample Bag 196 because it was printed in so many of the contemporary newspapers. The astronauts
went down to the LRL expecting to see The Genesis Rock on Weds. night, but, they were sorely disappointed because the LRL manager had switched the
rock out of Sample Bag 196!!!
"the rock was not in the sample bag where they expected it to be." And that can only mean one thing : the Genesis Rock was not in Sample Bag 196.
The A15 press conference on Thursday is also a major problem for the NASA cheerleaders because it shows, without question, the astronauts were very
disappointed about this "Genesis Rock" switcher-oo.
There is two things that I know for certain: the Apollo 15 Tv press conference from trans-earth coast is very rare. Not many people have seen the
video ~ it has no floating objects in it. Second thing: the post splash down Tv press conference cannot be found on the internet in it's entirety.
I find it difficult to believe that thousands of Apollo defenders are oblivious to these two very problematic questions.
