Skeptics, Earth telescopes CAN see objects on Moon!

Postby Scepcop » 07 Feb 2010, 20:39

This was known back in 2002 in fact. Using "adaptive optics" the most powerful telescope on Earth CAN locate the Lunar Module on the moon, after all! It says so in a 2002 article in the Telegraph, and the head of the Australian Observatory says so too! See him explain it to Jarrah White here:



So why then didn't they use it to find the Lunar Module on the moon and put the moon hoax conspiracies to rest, if they could? They said they were gonna do it, so why didn't they?

No evidence presented in the video. But no worries, other people have asked the same questions and come up with answers.

Example http://calgary.rasc.ca/moonscope.htm

It includes photos of the moon lander and calculations about how big a telescope would have to be to see the moon lander from Earth.


From the above table, even ignoring the limitation imposed by Earth's atmosphere we can see that we would need an optical telescope with an objective mirror about 100 meters (about 328 feet) in diameter to just about be able to see the landers and the rovers.

I imagine that with the expense of observe time and the need to utilize the existing equipment to its full potential it isn't of interest to swing telescopes over to show nay sayers that they are mistaken. I'd expect the nay sayers to continue with a claim of yet another hoax. You let one wacko look through a telescope and see the moon landing and another would claim that the viewer was bought off. Then there would be claims that unmanned robots went there and set up the props including stomping around the moon to make the foot prints.

No, sorry, Nostradamus that is not it. Telescopes cannot tell the difference between the moon lander and a rock from the earth. See the link in my previous post for the details.

You need to get a telescope in orbit around the moon to see the moon lander. This has been done.

Thanks for the correction tiger. I did not see the video.

Well the robots seem to be a good theory :shock:

Kidding - but with technology and as it evolves, I am sure we will clearly be able to see the moon if not already, anyone agree?

Jarrah White has already pointed out that some lunar shots appear to have been photoshopped -- that the lander in the (photoshopped) orbiting pic is 90 degrees off in terms of its supposed original orientation according to all records. And quite a few other anomalies.

Yes. And we know that Jarrah White couldn't possibly be wrong, especially when you watch him show his scientific expertise in the following youtube video using legos, car headlights, and some duct tape.



And yes, sarcasm was intended.
