Hi there people
I have just one question if some body could enlighten me as to how nasa managed to send astronauts through the Van Allen radiation belt without them
becoming fatally radiated ? I ask this question as its quoted in several documentaries as a significant hurdle in manned space travel outside a
1000miles radius of earth. thanks fa ya time
Do I believe the US has gone to the moon? Yes.
Do I believe they went to the moon in 60's? No.
von Braun was a visionary, and everything NASA is doing, is based on his visions at the time. But I find everything in the TV siries (Yes, I call
them TV series) to be like an old B movie. There are just too many anomalies there, that don't make sense.
Of course, the average American believes in it. He's like a muslim, no questions asked ... this is what they grew up with, this is what they read,
sang, drank and made love with. Saying anything different, is herasy ... obviously it is.
For the rest of us, I see NASA fighting to send a robot to Mars in 2012. It is dropping a ball on mars, and not landing anything that can return ...
yet, it's 50 years since the moon landings. Those landings were easy ... we should've mastered landings on alien planets by now ... and back then,
everybody was so optimistic, it was a moonbase on the moon next. It would be 24/7 human presence there. It would solve so many problems, and so many
issues ... oh ... oh oh oh
No, we went to mars with a Rover instead to look at another dead rock in space. Instead of sending it to the moon, and master this one. No, we went
to another dead rock ... and this time, we've got an excuse not to send human beings there.
I don't care about all the proofs and non-proofs, it's the NASA history that doesn't add up. It's gone 50 years now ... and all we're doing is
sending billions of dollars to another dead rock in the galaxy. We could save a couple of billion, by sending them to the very next dead rock here
... as one dead rock, is just like another dead rock ... and we need to take one step at a time, into space ... we're not gonna jump from here to
mars. We need the moon for it ...
And we're not even half way there yet ...
So, the answer is ... NO, I don't believe they did.
