No, you are using shielding. You aren't using shielding as people think of it from movies, and news. Depending on the type of particle you are talking about, "normal" shielding is a bad idea. The denser the shielding, the more radiation it's going to give off more radiation on the inside of the shielding from particles that are given off by the particles hitting it.

LOL. Yah, it seems its all a distraction designed to pull your mind from the more important issues before the world.
And by the way... (snicker) the launches and assembly building were holograms, tee hee hee.
The development of the laser enabled the first practical optical holograms that recorded 3D objects to be made in 1962 by Yuri Denisyuk in the Soviet Union and by Emmett Leith and Juris Upatnieks at the University of Michigan, USA. Early holograms used silver halide photographic emulsions as the recording medium. They were not very efficient as the grating produced absorbed much of the incident light. Various methods of converting the variation in transmission to a variation in refractive index (known as "bleaching") were developed which enabled much more efficient holograms to be produced
The thing is some guy got so angry thinking they were wires

All I see here is claims that have been debunked time and time again.
Take the alleged "wire" for instance. IT is an antenna that sticks out of the back of the suit that has ALWAYS been there. Its not a damn wire.
"Holograms" (in 1969?) Weren't all that advanced
I see its Time for another "sabbatical": to restore faith in my fellow "man"..I'm going to "logout" and delete my password from my system for my own sanity.

The moon hoax conspiracy is probably the most unimportant theory there is.

Mods...we can flag & star threads & posts, we can even unflag a thread, why can't we down flag a useless thread such as this.
Give us an option to down vote or down flag a thread to keep such nonsense off the main page.
While such a useless thread may still be created it will be relegated to the section where some may find it interesting while not wasting bandwidth for the rest of us.

I think you are spot on r2d246. For so long I have wanted to get into the mix. Guess my timidity has hurt in the past. I worked for NASA, roughly 11 years as a project manager. Some of us would chat occasionally about the likelihood or unlikelihood of our being buggered on some of this stuff, especially the planetary probes and Apollo. Sometimes, I think because we were women, a couple of girlfriends and I that worked there, people actually paid us MORE mind. But ultimately we'd get shouted down. The main reason for my suspicions, tendency toward disbelief in the reality of the big projects, had to do with the principals not being very convincing. I met Gene Cernan and I thought he was a con man, VERY UNCONVINCING as a spaceman. I listened to him talk and thought, "No way this guy went to the moon, NO WAY!". I don't think Cernan could park a car, let alone land a lunar excursion vehicle and drive a rover. Also, the hostility thing. I always felt that, and still do, the hostility of the conventional view folks is so much out of proportion to the hoax believers. That is a telltale sign of weakness, aggression. This is so because there is no genuine alternative. I am yet to declare myself an HB publicly , but and am on the verge of it. I also met Lovell. He yaks like mad, but it is all bull. I don't think he could pass a college level calculus with a B+. He come across as a C student with the gift of gab. The planetary probe projects and Apollo are gamed, can't be legitimate.

I don't get it. Why would NASA fake the moon landings? Although I can't personally start a space program, it doesn't seem like it's difficult to do, just expensive as hell. So expensive that the US are the only ones that could afford to do it many times.
I just don't see the point of why NASA would fake it.
