Originally posted by chrisbobsonDeke Slayton was diagnosed with paroxysmal atrial fibrillation(PAF). Because of this he could not not
serve as an astronaut that flew. His illness forced him into a desk job where he became the "astronaut boss". He later was deemed "cured" and sent
into space well after the conclusion of the Apollo Program. Atrial fibrillation is not curable and I along with others have concluded on this basis
that the space Missions were faked.
Agreed. If the Deke had a weak heart,, and he was grounded for so many years, then sending him into space was a seriously bad medical risk. It would
also be a serious operational hazard to his fellow crew mates.
There are plenty of other healthy astronaut candidates in 1975. Somehow, Deke, with his weak heart, gets approved.
A long medical program[clarification needed] led to Slayton being restored to full flight status in 1972, when he was selected as docking module
pilot for the Apollo–Soyuz Test Project, a docking between the American Apollo spacecraft and the Soyuz spacecraft of the Soviet Union. On July 17,

What kind of idiot doctor would send a man with a bad heart into space?
Was it this guy?
