Are the pictures we see today taken on the moon?
Might NOT be.....
Did we really go to the moon in the late 1960's and early 1970's? It is a debatable question. In any case, there are enough doubts one can raise against the moon-landing theories. Here are some of those listed. Read and decide, did we really go to the moon? After reading this, post your comments below.
First of all, keep this in mind -- NASA says, no artificial light had been taken to the moon and all the pictures were taken using natural light (Sunlight and the light from the earth). Now go ahead.....
- This is a picture that shows some anomaly. The reflection on the moon is estimated at 7% and therefore the golden side of the Lunar Module which is not facing the sun should have been blackened out in the shadows. Even a kid knows, this much detail on the golden side is impossible. NASA might say that the light reflected from the other parts and from the bright spacesuit lit up this particular portion.
- Here is another example of the said case. It is obvious that an artificial light source was used to make the shot clearer. But NASA says it didn't. In this picture, a greyish portion is clearly visible at the right hand top of the picture. According to NASA, this image also was lit up brightly, due to the reflection on the surface of the moon.
- Here is a close-up of Aldrin's boot. From the bright spot on the boot, it is apparent that an artificial light source was used. But as said before, NASA says this was lit up by reflection on the surface of the moon.
- Take a look at this photograph. If there was a great deal of reflection on the surface of the moon, then why the side facing the shadow is black? We saw earlier, how a greying portion was clearly lit up by the 'natural reflection'.
- See the next picture for a very good example of the ideal state. This is a photograph used to explain the glares in this particular photograph (The two bright blobs on the left). The explanation for the blobs is that they are caused by bright light shining into the lens and reflecting off its interior and then down onto the film. Since there is no artificial light used on the moon, naturally the mentioned bright light must have been that from the sun. But take a look at the astronaut and the vehicle. It is not brightly lit up! We saw the official explanation of the picture details on the shadow side in some pictures. If it was bright light, that coused the blobs, then why didn't the same light lit up the astronaut and vehicle as in the previous cases.
- This is another example. In this picture also, there is only an understandable amount of reflection. Why wasn't this picture also brightly lit up like the previous photos?
- Next is the very famous picture of Edwin 'Buzz' Aldrin saluting the American flag. On the right side of the lunar module, everything 'except' the American flag is in the shadow. Even the legs of Aldrin is not as bright! How can you explain the effect of light a maxium near the flag on the module and a minimum on the legs of Aldrin who should have been more lit up? Remember, it is the same bright suit that is capable of reflecting a lot of light that he is still wearing!
- See the picture below. Anybody knows, in an open area as seen in the picture, sunlight would produce shadows only along one direction. But in the picture, see the shadows are leading in various directions, which indicates that many light sources were used to take this picture, placed at different angles and distances.
Some doubtful facts
- There was a fibreglass whip antenna on the Gemini 6A capsule and it survived the tremendous heat of atmospheric re-entry! We saw how a tile created problems to Columbia. Most recently, a non protected portion about the size of a thread is creating more headaches to NASA as the crew on board Discovery is trying to fix it. So how did that old fibreglass whip antenna survive the extreme heat of atmospheric re-entry?
- The moon's gravity is only 1/6 th of that on the earth. So one should be able to jump at least 10 feet high in this gravity. The maximum jump on the moon was below 20 inches in height. Even after considering the spacesuits and other stuffs around the astronauts' body, this seems too little. Remember, a man who can lift 20 kg can lift 120 kg on the moon.
- Though NASA says the Van Allen belts in the outer sky may not cause radiation problems to the astronauts, one has to consider that they had to traverse 4 hours through extreme radiation dose per trip. A thin aluminium foil was used for the radiation protection! Still, they came back safely.
- Even in 2003, NASA failed to complete the Columbia mission. The current Discovery venture is also a major concern as of now. Even with the advanced technologies available in all the fields, NASA couldn't complete all missions perfectly. But out of the 7 manned missions to the moon, NASA succeeded in 6. It is a whopping 85.71 % success rate. Remember, Apollo missions had more distance to cover to and fro, had to land men on the moon, stay for hours there, relaunch, go and come through intense radiation zones, and finally return safely back to the earth. And, all this happened successfully in the late 1960's and very early 1970's. Was the technology better then?
- Scientists loyal to NASA asks, with the non-advanced technology of the 1960's how can one fake the photos perfectly? Then my question is with the non-advanced technology of the 1960's how could they land men on the moon and return safely back to the earth?
- The maximum computer memory 256 KB! The computer on board Apollo 11 was 32 KB in memory! And computer chips were not even invented then! Still they managed to go to the moon, land and return safely!
The most interesting point
This seems to be the most interesting point. Taking all the Apollo manned-missions into account, we have a sum of 5771 photographs in all. The aggregate time all the manned-Apollo missions amounts to 4834 minutes on the moon. Here are the counts. This is a time and Motion study conducted and copyrighted by critic and Aulis editor Jack White. I am producing some facts from the study here, for a non-profitable, non-commercial, awareness purpose.
Mission Photos Time (Minutes)
Apollo 11 121 151
Apollo 12 504 470
Apollo 14 374 565
Apollo 15 1021 1110
Apollo 16 1765 1214
Apollo 17 1986 1324
There were two Hasselblad cameras on board in each mission. The camers were not automatic. So everytime, the astronauts had to load the film, adjust settings, focus and then shoot. The most important fact to keep in mind that the two cameras were seldom used simultaneously. On almost all the occassions, one man was taking the picture of the other at work. So, the time would not effectively double.
Other activities of the crew on board, apart from taking photographs
- Apollo 11..........Inspect LEM for damage, deploy flag, unpack and deploy radio and television equipment, operate the TV camera (360 degree pan), establish contact with Earth (including ceremonial talk with President Nixon), unpack and deploy numerous experiment packages, find/document/collect 47.7 pounds of lunar rock samples, walk to various locations, conclude experiments, return to LEM.
- Apollo 12..........Inspect LEM for damage, deploy flag, unpack and deploy radio and television equipment (spend time trying to fix faulty TV camera), establish contact with Earth, unpack and deploy numerous experiment packages, walk to various locations, inspect the unmanned Surveyor 3 which had landed on the Moon in April 1967 and retrieve Surveyor parts. Deploy ALSEP package. Find/document/collect 75.7 pounds of rocks, conclude experiments, return to LEM.
- Apollo 14..........Inspect LEM for damage, deploy flag, unpack and deploy radio and television equipment and establish contact with Earth, unpack and assemble hand cart to transport rocks, unpack and deploy numerous experiment packages, walk to various locations. Find/document/collect 94.4 pounds of rocks, conclude experiments, return to LEM.
- Apollo 15..........Inspect LEM for damage, deploy flag, unpack and deploy radio and television equipment and establish contact with Earth, unpack/assemble/equip and test the LRV electric-powered 4-wheel drive car and drive it 17 miles, unpack and deploy numerous experiment packages (double the scientific payload of first three missions). Find/document/collect 169 pounds of rocks, conclude experiments, return to LEM. (The LRV travels only 8 mph*.)
- Apollo 16..........Inspect LEM for damage, deploy flag, unpack and deploy radio and television equipment and establish contact with Earth, unpack/assemble/equip and test the LRV electric-powered 4-wheel drive car and drive it 16 miles, unpack and deploy numerous experiment packages (double the scientific payload of first three missions, including new ultraviolet camera, operate the UV camera). Find/document/collect 208.3 pounds of rocks, conclude experiments, return to LEM. (The LRV travels only 8 mph*.)
- Apollo 17..........Inspect LEM for damage, deploy flag, unpack and deploy radio and television equipment and establish contact with Earth, unpack/assemble/equip and test the LRV electric-powered 4-wheel drive car and drive it 30.5 miles, unpack and deploy numerous experiment packages. Find/document/collect 243.1 pounds of rocks, conclude experiments, return to LEM. (The LRV travels only 8 mph*.)
If nothing but photography alone was done, then also, even a professional photographer cannot take this many pictures in this much time!
The former USSR were the first to send a rocket to the outer space, to send a man to the space, to send a woman to the space, to send an animal to the space, to launch a satellite, to take pictures of the other side of the moon etc. America were obviously disappointed at this. So, they wanted to make something afresh. In 1962, the then US President John F Kennedy declared that America would send man to the moon by the end of the sixties. Having not reached anywhere in this regard, it can be assumed that America faked the moon landings. Isn't so obvious that man didn't have enough technology in the 1960's to go to the moon and return safely?
