Table XI is the mobility table data, using flexometers and the mobility notation table (as well as other techniques). Table XIII is from the X-ray study. Look at page 50 and see what equipment they use for each sub-test. Subtest 2 (X-ray study) lists X-ray facilities and a mock-up of the couch as necessary equipment. They suit someone up, sit him in the couch, and X-ray him to determine the eye-heart angle, and measure the joint angles using the mid-points of the major bones. If that wasn't enough, you can infer he's seated by looking at what they measure. In the mobility table study, they measure (among others): hip adduction-abduction; hip flexion-extension; hip rotation; trunk rotation; trunk-hip flexion-extension; trunk-hip lateral flexion. In the X-ray study, the only one of these angles they measure is hip flexion. This conform's with what you'd expect if the subject was seated in a couch.

No. They are seated for the eye-heart angle test. You can't expand that to other tests, as you've done here. They don't say or suggest this. If they did, it would have stated so. But this was specific.

You can't make such faulty leaps of logic.

For the umpteenth time, did you have any evidence supporting your assertion that the suit couldn't bend at the knee as witnessed, or not?

I love that airplane. Here is an attachment photo of Colonel Warren's aircraft that I took at the Travis AFB air show in 2008.  I will speak with him tomorrow in regards to the Apollo 14 recovery mission at his home and discuss other Apollo moon missions.

I love most any airplane...but that is a sweet little ride!

And please give the Colonel my regards !

When I was visiting with Colonel Warren, he let me take a newspaper clip in regards to his mission to recover the Apollo 14 astronauts, which I copied and adding as an attachment. That is Colonel Warren on the step of his aircraft.

I will pass on your regards for you, Bee! I am going to ask him to detail his Apollo 14 recovery mission next week since he left today on his trip to Ithaca, New York for his book signing there. I spoke with him this morning.

MID,

Here are the Apollo 14 astronauts in Colonel Warren's aircraft.

Posted Image

The crew remained aboard the New Orleans in the mobile quarantine facility until they departed by aircraft for Pago Pago, Samoa, at 17:46 GMT on 11 February. They were then transferred to a second mobile quarantine facility aboard a C-141 aircraft and flown to Ellington Air Force Base, Houston, where they arrived at 09:34 GMT on 12 February, following a refueling stop at Norton Air Force Base, California. The crew entered the lunar receiving laboratory at 11:35 GMT the same day.

BTW, seeing that no apollo-deniers with any interesting points have yet appeared on this new thread.. readers may be interested in the subject of a thread elsewhere.  I shall give a brief synopsis..

The British Interplanetary Society, in a move lambasted by quite a few members and other folks (me included!), invited Marcus Allen (editor of a fringe conspiracy-oriented 'science' magazine') to give a talk on 'anomalies' in Apollo photography.  Mr Allen is oft qutoed as doubting the Apollo missions based on what he perceived as anomalies.  To cut a long story short, the BIS copped a LOT of flack over this, for the way it was initially advertised and for giving Allen some perception of credibility for his supposed photographic analytical abilities...  But they bravely went ahead with the event, a few weeks back.

Now sadly there doesn't appear to any video record of the event, but overall, here's what happened...

1. Marcus Allen said that he didn't really doubt that the Apollo mission happened (which isn't exactly in accordance with his public statements, to put it kindly)

2. Marcus Allen accepted at the conclusion that there were in fact no anomalies, after every single one of them was addressed in detail by various experts and the attending audience.

3. Marcus Allen joined the BIS.

I posted a thread topic about this event over at ApolloHoax, and now the the result of the event has been covered in an article in the BIS magazine upon which a forum member over there very kindly posted a scan.  Hence this post to spread the news a bit wider!

I quote some of the BIS article here, for your edification.

Quote

Many BIS Members and Fellows challenged the need for the Society to hold such a debate, not a few seeing it as pandering to the 'fringe' conspiracy groups supporting the notion that humans never landed on the moon. A waste of time{? -} well, those expecting a fiery confrontation with noted sceptic Marcus Allen were confounded, for it did not turn out that way at all. It turned out that Marcus Allen and the BIS learned more than they expected.
...
The most impressive aspect to this fascinating evening was the dignity of the audience, the respect for personal opinion displayed by those present, and by the extended interchange where Apollo veterans in the audience contributed in a knowledgeable way.
...
When asked by Spaceflight Editor David Baker to define the precise position he takes, Marcus Allen asserted that he does not challenge the fact that Apollo astronauts landed on the moon. This is contradictory to his published position and the view he takes on radio and TV interviews.
...
...the BIS was able to answer each and every aspect of the photography challenged by Mr Allen. In fact, in closing, he thanked his audience and said that he had never had such a comprehensive and convincing set of rebuttals from any group he had ever spoken to. He openly admitted that this one evening had done a great deal to lie to rest several misgivings he had previously held.
...
the BIS learned a lot too that it would perhaps not have understood had the event not taken place. Thatrather than being diehard zealots, many who have misgivings about the Apollo landings are ignorant of the facts simply because they have been unable to access explanations in an understandable form.
...
In the best possible expression of what the BIS stands for, this evening debate helped demolish myths previously believed by Marcus Allen and enabled all those present to receive a first class lesson in a logical and dignified manner. And the best bit of all? Marcus Allen has joined the BIS!


So there you have it folks.  Another denier converted to the truth...

Tell me, why have you posted my quote, since you just ignored it ?  ,

As for evidence - well, I'm still waiting for you on that. So far, you've shown me a document that supports my side, so if that's the best you can do, you've failed.

Why would such an amazing spacesuit, fron the most 'well-documented' program in all our history....have no documents whatsoever on this issue? But far worse, we now see there are several documents on this,for the prototype Apollo spacesuits, among others. Even a document written during the Apollo program has little regard for the Apollo spacesuit. I've seen footnotes that are more informative..

The documents written years after Apollo are the biggest killer.They cite PRE-Apollo suits, but not a word on the actual Apollo suit!!

And that says it all, really.

How amusing that I saw old videos of the Apollo spacesuit undergoing test that you have claimed, wasn't possible. Question is; you have failed to refute the fact that men have walked and drove on the moon and your attempt to refute the facts on the Apollo spacesuit has failed as well.

I have also posted videos where that have refuted the claims of the moon hoax folks in regards to footprints on the moon and flag-waving in a vacuum. Those test have proven beyond any doubt the moon hoax folks were incorrect.

TURB SPEAKS TO MAKING FAULTY LEAPS IN LOGIC?

That's somewhat like feeling  "sorry for people who believe in illusions" (which he actually said in a recent post... :w00t:)

He defines Turbologic, save one thing:

Faultythinking  it is, but logic plays little or no real part in it.



He's demonstrated a recent penchant for introducing comic leaps for us to consider.

Doesn't deserve too much further comment-- :td:

Yes Chrlzs, we've had large segments of the threads devoted to the so-called photographic anomalies in the Apollo lunar surface photos.
People still from time to time speak of anomalous photos.

I approached these discussions from the position of staing that the photos from the Apollo EVAs had no anomalies whatsoever--that they represented perfectly normal photographic representations, just like photos on Earth did.

With the aid of a few photographically astute folks here, This statement was incontrovertibly proven.  

I hope many learned about photos in those discussions.

It's amazing how much it took to illustrate relatively simple points.

But lots of interesting stufgf has come from discussions here:


One time, HBs were talking bout the Apollo 11 views of Earth rthat were "faked" from the spacecraft and I made mention of the fact that the pictures were being shot out of the #1 window (far left side window). And that prompted a question like this:


How could they be looking at the Earth out their side windows when they were going to the Moon.  Shouldn't their nose have been pointed the way they were going?
this question was asked so as to establish that they couldn't have been filming out the side window of the spacecraft, when they should've been pointing at the Moon, and the Earth should've been behind them and out of sight.

That's where this is worth it.
Of course the answer was "No" as pertained to the spacecraft's nose pointing direction, but, it prompted a discussion of the ecliptic plane, and REFFSMMATs and attitude for PTC, and maneuvering vs. translation.  The spacecraft's nose never actually pointed at the Moon, and explaining that a spacecraft could point in any direction in space and never change trajectory seemed fascinating to people, and a great deal of information and learning happened.

For a time, the Hoax wasn't mentioned while we discussed trajectories and things like that.

It was worth the effort!
