I'm seeking to revive the moon hoax debate (and Jarrah White's
information, in particular) for several reasons:
1) His body of work is still the best I've seen, here or anywhere.
(if someone else disagrees, well then, that's another
perk: to broaden our scope on the subject)
2) As far as I can tell through ATS search, it was the most viewed Moon-Hoax topic on
ATS - therefor participation by old members and new,
alike, might be better. (377 Flags, and 671 Pages
Orignally Young Aussie genius whipping NASA in Moon Hoax Debate!
3) It's been almost 2 years since the original thread was closed ('pending Staff review'), whereas:
- a) we can no longer comment or debate there, anymore but more importantly...
- b) who knows how many new members - particularly, who hold this topic in high regard - haven't had the benefit of participating in this debate?
I've spent some time perusing his official site, moonfaker.com
, which is meant to supplement his
. (both awesome, and packed with information)
I thought the best place to kick off our [new] discussion, might be discussing his FAQ, which is insanely large, but halfway down the page we get:
Q: What is the most compelling evidence that the moon missions were faked?
A: Jarrah can nail it down to three pieces of evidence.
First, as demonstrated by James VAN ALLEN [BELTS]' own findings, the radiation belts that surround earth would have been lethal to
astronauts10, 11. It began in 1952 when James Van Allen & his team at the University of Iowa began launching Geiger counters into space aboard
rockoons. Although these did not have enough lift to get into orbit, these experiments were able to detect radiation levels higher than what Van Allen
had expected. Later in the late 50s and early 60s, his Geiger counters were carried aloft by the Explorer satellites and Pioneer space probes. Each
time the spacecrafts entered the radiation belts, the Geiger counters would become continuously busy. They encountered protons and electrons with
fluxes of 40,000 particles per square centimetre per second and average energies ranging between 1-100 MeV.
Before Van Allen began shielding his Geiger counters with a millimetre of lead, the instruments detected radiation with a dose rate equivalent of
312.5rad/hr to 11,666rad/hr for the outer belt and inner belt respectively [Fig-2]12. These instruments quickly became jammed by the radiation. Even
to this day, the belts are so severe that satellites must operate outside the belts: geostationary satellites operating beyond the end of the outer
belt (but still within the protection of the magnetosphere) and GPS satellites operating in the gap between the two belts. Meanwhile low earth orbit
satellites like the Hubble must shut down some of their instruments during South Atlantic Anomaly (SAA) transit. Even after Van Allen shielded his
Geiger counters with lead, the results were still equivalent to 10-100rad/hr. He concluded that effective shielding of astronauts was beyond
engineering feasibility available at the time, that even a rapid transit through the belts would be hazardous, and that for these reasons the two
belts must be classed as an uninhabitable region of space that all manned space flight must steer clear of.
Even if we discount the Van Allen belt, there are still other dangers to consider. The sun constantly bombards the earth-moon system with solar
flares. Regardless of whether these flares deliver x-rays or protons, or are minor or major, both are a hazard to humans. A major flare delivers in
excess of 100rad/hr, a minor flare can deliver 25rad/hr depending on how many centimetres of water shielding is used. The minor flares of May 10th and
July 15th 1958 for example, would have required 31gm/cm2 of water just to bring their dose rates down to 25rad/hr [Fig-3]. The Apollo capsule, with
its aluminium honeycomb hull and outer epoxy resin ablator, was rated at 3gm/cm2 on the walls and 8gm/cm2 on the aft heatshield. The thicker portion
of the spacecraft walls would bring the dose rate of such flares down to around 1,000rem/hr. The records show that 1400 of these minor flares occurred
over all nine moon flights (Tables 1 & 2). NOAA’s Comprehensive Flare Index for Major flares, also reveals that thirty of the major ones took place
during the Apollo missions. By any definition, these astronauts should have been as dead as spam in a can.
The second smoking gun is the fact that the APOLLO 10 TELECASTS were proven to have been pre-filmed and edited together. After every
space mission, NASA releases a ground-to-air communications transcript covering everything the crew and capsule communicators (Capcoms) said during
the flight. The company Spacecraft Films sells what they claim is complete and unedited television transmissions and 16mm reels from the Apollo
missions. Jarrah purchased the Apollo 10 DVD set and compared the in-flight videos with the transcript. To his astonishment, Jarrah found numerous
occasions in which the views of earth and even interior shots would cut from one angle to another and yet the audio would remain perfectly
synchronized to the video with no signs of interruption when the video cut. So we know that the astronauts didn’t simply cut the camera and then
begin rolling moments later.
The Apollo astronauts had only the one television camera hooked up to the S-band antenna, so these broadcasts should be one continuous shot with no
edits – as per the false claims made by propagandists. Because these edits only take place during post production, not whilst the video is being
recorded, it would not have been possible to cut and paste LIVE video. The only logical conclusion is that the views of earth were pre-filmed, edited
together, and then sandwiched between the interior shots with the ground-to-air communications dubbing the video regardless of the edits. Transitions
from these fake views of earth videos to interior scenes were pulled off by conveniently cutting the camera or blacking the scene from interior to
exterior and vice versa, in one circumstance Eugene Cernan went as far as putting a piece of paper in front of the camera lens during this switch from
exterior to interior!
By comparing the videos with the transcript, Jarrah also discovered that there were sections of video missing from the “complete” Spacecraft Films
DVD set. Jarrah knows these missing pieces of video exist, because in the transcript the Capcom confirms that the MSFN was ‘receiving’ them. For
reasons unknown, Spacecraft Films omitted minutes of footage from Apollo 10 and then sold their DVD set to the world as “complete & unedited.”
After Jarrah released his video covering this, ironically titled “Flagging The Gems”, Mark Gray of Spacecraft Films flagged it for copyright
infringement and had the video pulled along with Jarrah’s entire Youtube account. Gray’s copyright claims are fraudulent and thus he is guilty of
perjury, because NASA’s in flight telecasts are PUBLIC DOMAIN. They are not copyrighted.
