But for some reason NASA decided to produce a slew of photographs that were obvious studio fakes. These
have been the basis of the landing skepticism. I recall downloading some of these from NASA web servers
and there is no way they were legit. Some of these specimens had planar focus transitions that are physically
impossible with any lens optics and were obviously prop boundaries. Others had a lander that had zero dust
disturbance under the rocket nozzle used to land it, there should have been a radial blast pattern in the Moon
Even the Moon buggy video looks fake. The altitude of the dust ejected by the wheels is something you would
get on Earth under a gravity 6 times larger than on the Moon. On the Moon the dust should have been flying higher
than any of the astronauts. There is no air resistance to stop it. Also, the Moon dust is compose of minerals
much like on Earth so it is not super heavy.
Then there is the funny case of the TV studios not being allowed to broadcast a direct video signal but having
to aim the cameras at a screen projecting the supposed Moon videos. This decreased video quality by a significant
fraction and clearly had nothing to do with any attempt to avoid embarrassing live stream situations.
We are now going to have Moon landings in the 2030s. That is over 60 years after the supposed original landings.
A rather strange gap.
My initial reaction was that NASA screwed up its filming and photographing so it had to resort to fakes. But then
other questions crept up. For example, the solar wind radiation of any capsule going to the Moon. The astronauts
would not be shielded from high energy CME-associated electrons and protons. They would also not be shielded form
the relativistic electrons in the Van Allen belts. The capsule aluminum skin thickness was about 1/4 inch. The range-energy
relations for electrons in aluminum easily show that this is too thin to stop even 600 keV electrons let alone MeV range electrons.
Why did none of the Moon astronauts report seeing sparkles in their eyes? They should have experienced prolonged cases of this
on their flight through the Earth's geomagnetic envelope and beyond it on the way to the Moon. During the 1980s
Shuttle astronauts reported this when they took the Shuttle up to about 1000 km. Watch some of the press conferences
given by the Moon astronauts and see if their facial expressions are consistent with history makers or fraudsters.
I was initially generous to NASA and the USA and believed the claims. But we live in a rotten world of lies and deceit
and there are too many questions in this case to be ignored and for credulity.
