Hey, thanks for the response, I am going to spend the evening looking at this so thanks again.
As I have said in a reply above I like that others havce lkooked at McGowan and found alternative views. He was very enlightening for me but if
alternative ideas exist I would like to hear them. Besides, if nothing else, he asks the right sort of questions imo. Most issues of note seem to get
bogged down these days with never ending arguments about inconsequential details that even if an answer could be found, it would not further the cause
while the real questions remain neglected by this asinine nonsense.
I think McGowan hit for me because his questions had real answers and final opinions could be made using the data. If the same questions have
alternative consideration or even if things like the Dutch Moon Rock not actually having any relevance as you appear to be suggesting then I should
know that for sure so I look forward to reading the information in the link you provided.
As for the TV thing you mentioned, just to cover that.....
I am not sure I understand what you are saying or whether you understand me entirely.
The first thing that seems extremely weird is the fuel issue. The first Apollo shuttle clocked over 622,000 miles and it used just ONE TANK OF GAS.
How is that possible? If this was some sort of super concentrated, 50 % oil, 50% ammonia, petrol never seen before, it’s a real shame we lost it as
were the moon mission not be a hoax whatever they used as fuel could make gas stations obsolete. 622,000 miles worth of gas does not fit into a
shuttle the size of that used for Apollo. End of story.
Ok, so not crap at the time; the pocket calculator was first released a short while AFTER the first APOLLO mission, AFTER. You did hear that
It seems we can create magic space shuttles with fuel that goes a very long way using slithers only and yet we have only just designed a calculator
felt small enough to be used as an everyday office item. There has never been any explanation of acknowledgement for these miracles either. Where are
they now? The calculator was regarded highly enough it stayed for forty odd years, magic shuttles and effective fuel just didn’t make the cut?
If we consider the TV’s as you outline, they were hideous things at the time, barely holding a black and white picture for some people. Yet we had
shuttles and fuel operating to specifications the like we had never seen before, never seen since either though to be fair.
We also had super and magical astronauts too don’t forget. These were amazing beings capable of taking on any challenge always prevailing. These
guys were so incredible they often took on new, highly dangerous, challenges, four and five at a time. These guys became so good at one point they
were taking on five new challenges in the space of a few days while on the moon, never before and never again.
Maybe a little less acid and we could still have all of this as it is the only excuse I could offer as to why NASA has managed to LOSE EVERY SINGLE
APOLLO FILE. All of the plans, designs, analysis, flight data, EVERYTHING, SIMPLY LOST AT SOME POINT DURING THE 1970’s. And, despite thorough
searches lasting in excess of a year for the longest, the 700 rolls of data have been officially recorded now as lost files. Do me a break, this is
The final important piece of the puzzle regarding the technology question is the lack of evidence that any technology evolution occurred allowing for
these special shuttles or a new fuel. In fact patterns and trends suggest that we are actually somehow less capable now than we were then as it is
beginning to feel very much like we cannot replicate what we managed in the 1960’s as we seem hugely reluctant, maybe unable, to put man back on the
moon, in fact we haven’t since the last Apollo mission about forty years ago now.
There are always probes going left and right, the Rover is on Mars etc, with NASA, Europe, China, and, of course, Russia, all still showing interest
in space with active programs. And yet, no one has yet, or even appears to be trying to, put another man on the moon, and make some more headway here.
The last Apollo mission, over forty years ago, was the last time man supposedly went to the moon. 40 YEARS AGO. No one, other than the very occasional
grumble from the US, is even hinting at trying, it is like the notion is some kind of forbidden fruit. Or, maybe it is just common knowledge among
leaders that at the moment, it simply cannot be done?
Anyway, longwinded answer to a straightforward question, did you even ask a question? Oh well.
I, like all of us I am sure, can get quite passionate with this stuff. Hopefully the link you gave me might help me rein that in a little, and with
that I am off to start it now. Bring on alternative theories and maybe I can untie some
