I think it is quite possible that Aldrin was so taken by the "magnificent desolation" that it just never crossed his mind to photograph Armstrong. The man was human after all. If it was me up there I think the only thing going through my mind would be, "I'm on the moon!" The only man that really knows the answer is Buzz Aldrin himself.
Waspie, your killing me here. I can't believe your offering up evidence for the hoaxers! Never crossed his mind? Now you make Aldrin out to be some sort of idiot. Well, maybe fake or actor? But definitely not an idiot.
Armstrong, not giving interviews, not wanting pictures, not wanting to be too associated with a hoax, he surely knew would be uncovered one day in the near or far off future. That is exactly why he has, to date, never given an interview about his experiences on the MOON! PERIOD! LOOK IT UP. The claim of this by Sibrel is clearly backed up by evidence I provide four posts ago. LOOK IT UP! And if you refuse to believe me, offer up proof to the contrary. I DARE YOU!
And while your debating common sense on picture taking, ask yourself why they didn't take way more pictures of the Earth in all her distant glory. Can either of you tell me how many pictures were taken of Earth from the moon? COMMON SENSE: If I was up there seeing Earth in all her glory, I would shoot tons of pictures of her! Why didn't they you might ask? Too many chances for even the amatuer astronomer to notice the Earth appears four times smaller than it should!
Thanks for more support for my stance there Waspie dude!
