Discuss Conspiracies and Cover Ups - e.g. 9/11 Truth, JFK Assassination, New World Order, Roswell, Moon Hoax, Secret Societies, etc. whatever conspiracy floats your boat.
I once believed the moon landing was real, but after looking at the evidence, I've come to the conclusion that they were faked.
The one thing that sticks out for me is that the first mammals to orbit the moon were human. From any competent Engineering standards, this is ludicrous.
First, we've got the radiation of the Van Allen belts. Assuming that the proposed path over the poles of the Earth would reduce the time spent in the Van Allen belts, there were no tests to see what would happen to mammalian cells passing through these belts. Gemini 10 investigated the South Atlantic Anomaly, but this can't predict how mammalian cells will react while passing through the belts.
Next, there's still radiation outside the Van Allen belts. There's poorly understood cosmic rays, which NASA admits is an obstacle to overcome if there is to be any long range space travel. The Moon emits plenty of gamma rays - and the sun emits plenty of x-rays . But the Apollo missions didn't test the effects of this radiation on any test mammals - humans were the first to (allegedly) test that this radiation was safe. If it was safe for the Apollo astronauts, why does NASA still say that radiation in space is keeping us from space travel?
During the Mercury program, they tested space flight first on monkeys: . It's asinine to think that NASA would test orbital flight on mammals but not translunar flight. That goes against their established testing protocols!
Certainly, there's no getting around the fact that humans were the first mammals to pass through the Van Allen belts and the first mammals to orbit the moon (allegedly.) In my mind, this is a huge red flag and indicates to me that Apollo was likely faked.
Yes, I appreciate your post. I have my own problems with the whole Apollo Program. However, I got to tell you. This is one topic which will only go to the abyss. If you are not aware there is a site you can go to which is excellently researched. By no means is this the final answer, but Jarrah has done a magnificent job answering his detractors.
Is it worth the our time to persuade someone that such a monumental effort involving somewhere around 400 thousand people over the course of the missions to send humans to the moon could have been accomplished all on a sound stage and not one person(s), document, memo etc. ever been leaked. Is it really worth the effort?
Gauss, I would have to agree with Really on this, however, for a very different reason. No shot at you, whatsoever. Until we can get the necessary clearances under the Apollo program this debate will see no light.
