Did China also land a big floodlight there?

Why would they when their rover is on a movie set?

Anyone want to take odds on how soon the cries of "fake" will show up?
...or have they already?

I read there' s no dust in a vaccuum ? (No vaccuum cleaner pun intended lol) Apparently dust would be heavily compressed and not act like it does in an atmosphere.


Others have already answered, but it is worth looking at the landing video

www.youtube.com...

Apart from its general awesomeness, the last few seconds reveal that it is landing in a zero atmosphere environment as the dust blown away disappears not in a billowing cloud but in fast moving streaks horizontally along the ground surface.

You can see exactly the same effect in the Apollo landing footage.

Oh dont be silly they wont claim a studio it will be CGI.

Loving this thread (apart from the normal nonsense). I can't wait to see what that little dude finds. Nice to see some real activity up there for a change.


I bet your Rabbit has found the G-Spot.

Where is the crater left behind by the engine thrust, and where is the dust that is supposed to be covering the lander and lading pads after being blown into a cloud all around the lander -- as the Apollo hoax proponents claim should be there?



Actually they shut off the engines when lander was at the height of 4 meters above the ground, so it was a 4 meter free fall.
That could explain the absence of dust.


You really dont know what WAH is do you? That was the point of Soylents ironic thread.

another thing...everyone is talking about mining the bejesus out of the moon....unless they're planning to replace the mass they remove, with something else, i foresee problems with this plan..


That's always my first thought when I hear people discussing mining the resources of the moon. The moon has such a significant daily impact on our world, how can anyone in their right mind think that changing the current equilibrium is ok?

In my small walnut brain, I would think less moon mass equals the moon moving out of earths orbit sooner than it would naturally do so. Now maybe if that mass is transferred to Earth, the Earth creates additional gravitational pull to offset the loss of moon mass???

I don't know, to me it just seems like a really, really bad idea to wholesale remove lunar mass.


Really, do you know what the mass of the moon might be? 81 billion quoted on the interweb.

Possibly the most we can mine on Earth is 80 thousand tonnes per day (based on Googles most efficient mines), mining at that rate, it would take over 2500 years to erode the moon to nothing.

But if you think how much could anyone really remove from the moon...

The Americans brough back 0.4 tonnes of moon rock over 3 years, if my shaky maths are right, that would take 200,000 days to mine or 550 years to mine 80,000 tonnes.

So lets say the Chinese, who cant do it on earth, can send a robot mining set up to the Moon (are you keeping up?).

And then lets say that the robot mining set up can run without human mechanical help for a while..and then, it mines and finds some resources which it can refine and put into transport boxes to be loaded into vehicles that can return to Earth from the Moon....

Perhaps now, you will stop worrying about altering the moons gravitational fields and creating tsunamis on earth.

Jeesus help me....

Sometimes on a clear day, it's possible to see some stars so why not on the moon as well? Even on the ISS with the brightness of the Earth and Sun, it's possible to see stars as well.
I think only time will tell as not everything we are being told by NASA is the truth as we all know...


With your eyes. Try a camera. Deny ignorance.

Exposure Exposure Exposure, shutter speed for taking pictures of the Moon are similar to daylight shots on the earth same light source the sun, exposure time for stars is longer many times longer it really is that simple.

Many members on here are into astrophotography we even have thread about it

Totally!

Here's a photo I took a couple of years ago in Scotland in a place with very little ambient light. It's a 30 second exposure with the maximum aperture size I could get.



You try taking a 30 second exposure of the moon and you'll see nothing but a white flare. By way of proof, here''s a photo of the moon taken late at night, also in Scotland around Hallowe'en, with a long exposure (but not as long as the previous photo:



Any stars in it? No, of course not, the moon is drowning them out.

Now compare that with another photo i took through my telescope at a fraction of a second:



See any stars in that one? No, because the exposure isn't long enough.

Anyone who gives a damn about the 'no stars' discussion can prove it for themselves in a few minutes on any clear night with a camera.

Excellent photos you put up there, especially the moon one. My camcorder can zoom right into something like what you have there but the picture is nothing like it what you can see. Good stuff

Here is a image I took of the moon back on Sept. 19th of the moon, exposed long enough to try and get some stars in it:



Exposure time was 5 seconds. ISO at 1600.

As you can see....even then not long enough for a lot of stars, and the moon is so bright it's washing out the sky and picture.

Well I respect your opinion of course.

And I would say that if NASA had the same budge as the military....or the same budget as Entittlements....that we would most likely have all that you want, and more. But right now, those budgets compared to NASA is like comparing someone that makes $1 million in a year....to someone that get's $70 in one year.

It also feels like this: A person that graduated MIT with honors, has written many successful papers that have been published, is really well known, has earned many awards and even the Nobel Peace prize.......but all that doesn't mater because he stopped owning a car and driving, and instead gets rides from friends.

Think these images are amazing each time I see them...





Wonder how long it will be when we see something like this again:



Will be good when we will see the many pictures they have taken already

It's hilarious how dead this thread is. Why? because the moonhoaxers are pretty much silenced now. Turns out that photos and footage on the Moon...look exactly like our footage from the Apollo program. Man, talk about people wasting YEARS on something...

OK so because all of the "Fake" people have gone (or so I read) I'll try and fight their fight.


Um.... Ok.... Well yeah, It's fake because they're just using the same set that the US used when they faked it first.

This is the reason why we're not giving them a hard time about human rights... It's not about the US debts that they bought, It's about the collaboration to fake the moon landing.


There ya go

That landing video looks even better when it's the right way up (and in HD).

www.youtube.com...


By the way, here's a new image from the mission (not sure if it's from the lander or the rover)

Source: China Space

Here's a version with colours auto-adjusted in Adobe Photoshop:

Looks about right for a lunar mare terrain. (See the "Colour of the Moon thread at www.abovetopsecret.com...)

What part of Scotland was that ?

At the very end, don't we see the lunar surface material being blasted sideways by the engine? The animation the Chinese used shows the surface material being blown away from under the lander from even higher up, but I haven't seen any recent images showing any sign of disturbance under the lander.
