from what i remember was'nt the cause of the spark a special kind of velco that became flammable when it was pressurized or something?i do think the accident was nasa's fault,just like it was NASA'S fault that when grissom orbited the earth,and splashed down and the explosive bolt on his aircraft blew off,thus losing the mercury space capsule which was found and retrived a few years back![/b]


Actually, velcro is not an ignition source.  It cannot cause a spark.
It is however a potential fuel, and aboard the Apollo 1 spacecraft, it, and several other materials became a fuel, once an ignition source was manifest.

The ignition source was electrical arcing, caused by frayed wired most likely inside a frequently accessed panel located in the right side of left hand lower equipment bay.  Also present in this area was a leaking glycol coolant line, which seemed to be the initial fire source.

This incident was the fault of everyone involved with that spacecraft, NASA, North American, etc.  This has already been clearly established.  One doesn't need to believe it.  It is a fact.

Not that I've looked into it much, but to play devil's advocate:

What motive(s) would NASA have, or possibly have, to murder Grissom and his crew inside the Apollo 1 capsule?

Grissom made those around him aware of his displeasure with the Apollo program. Two of the best known examples...

- he hung a lemon on the CM simulator the week before his death - with all the news media on hand to see him do it.

- minutes before he and his crew died, he complained...."I can't hear a word you're saying," Gus said in disgust. "Jesus Christ. I said, how are we going to go to the moon if we can't even communicate between two or three buildings?!?"

If he was regarded as a "loose cannon", and he had first hand knowledge that the space program was in shambles, there's no telling what he might say to the media. And if they were aware that putting a man on the Moon by 1969 was impossible, he could expose the entire Apollo program as a sham, a PR stunt.

Straydog said...

I don't believe it would have been in NASA's best interests to have deliberately sabatoged their own spacecraft ... As someone just pointed out on this thread ... if someone wanted Grissom dead so he couldn't talk , there would have been much easier and less expensive ways to shut him up ..

I agree there are simpler, cheaper ways if NASA wanted to murder Grissom. But in that case, I think it would be in NASA's best interests to sabotage their own craft. That is, if NASA wanted to make a point about what happens to astronauts that publicly mock and ridicule NASA's numerous technical screw-ups, it's almost perfect.

It sets a precedent for the entire Apollo program - sending a powerful message to all the astronauts should they be chosen for subsequent Apollo missions. "If you don't toe the line, we can - and will - kill you. And nobody will ever find out. We completely control the investigation, and if we have to, we can fabricate evidence to prove it was a 'technical blunder',  a 'freak accident'. History will record your death as a tragic mishap, in which you bravely lost your life in the service of your country."

NASA could not establish full control of any investigation outside of its facilities. More important, it would probably not send an obvious or convincing message to the other astronauts, that Grissom was deliberately "silenced" by his employer.

If Grissom died alone, NASA could look like it had a motive to commit murder - the guy who always scoffs at NASA needed to be "silenced". But killing three astronauts at once eliminates the singular attention and media focus on Grissom. The other two men were quite uncontroversial, especially when compared to the unpredictable, outspoken Grissom.

Anyway, just putting out some gist for the rumor mill....



turbonium .... Interesting post as always ...  I am having this same discussion on another forum at this time and also used the term "loose cannon" in describing Grissom ... I believe the fact that the Grissom family suspects sabatogue of the Apollo 1 capsule goes much deeper than any of us could possibly know or understand ....  I posted here that it would not have been in NASA's best interest to burn up their own space craft but on second thought , it might have been the answer to taking care of two problems at the same time ... Getting rid of a space craft which according to Tom Barron , in his maticulously detailed report ( which disappeared right after his 'suicide' ) , would have never made it to the moon in the first place .... and of course Grissom , who was so disgusted with NASA's complete incompetence that he loudly griped about the technical problems of his craft ...and then hung up a big lemon on the side of it for the whole world to see ... Quite an embarrassment for NASA , I'm sure .... But the fact that his personal papers , including his diary , were confiscated by NASA immediately following his death , speaks the loudest as to the possiblilty of him being deliberately killed.

There have been discussions about the very reclusive and strange behavior of all of the Apollo astronauts throughout the years ...  but people speculate that the reason for this behavior is because there was something to hide about the moon itself .... UFO buffs seem to always grab on to the disinformation about alien craft being seen on the moon and ancient alien glass structures covering the lunar landscape .. and that this was the reason for not only the strange behavior of the astronauts , but for faking the Apollo photographs as well .

Then there is the theroy that the photos didn't come out very good because of all the radaition on the lunar surface ... and NASA wanted us all to see some pretty pictures of their alleged accomplishments , so they staged them ....

But not many people discuss the fact that none of the Apollo astronauts act much like heros at all but rather hide away in seclusion , refusing to give any interviews ,.... and then when they do agree to giving interviews , they make complete fools of themselves by not even being able to answer the most basic of questions about their suppossed moon trips and moon walks ...

I'm sure you have seen the Bart Sibrel interviews with Gene Cernan , Ed Mitchell and Alan Bean , where none of them could even get their stories straight or even told the same story about what it was like to travel to , land , and then walk on the moon  ...

The NASA defenders will say that this is just because it was almost 40 years ago that these guys went to the moon and now as old men they can't quite remember all of the details of their space travels .... But there is obviously more to it than that .... If you watched the documentary 'Astronauts Gone Wild ' , you will see that Bean said there were no radiation flashes to be seen going though the Van Allen belts ... Then you can see where he didn't even know where the Van Allen belts were located or if they had even travelled high enough to go through them !!!  ...

Then in complete contradiction to that story , Cernan said that he did see the radiation flashes going through the belts .... but while he was telling his story about theses flashes , he was literally sweating bullets ( his shirt was soaked through)  and hollering at his dog to shut up ...and while he was hollering at this dog to shut up,  his body language showed that he was lying ....

Then Sibrel asked Cernan if the LM landing on the moon made any noise and he said that it was very loud ... but Bean had just stated in his interview that it made no noise at all and was completely quiet ...  So these complete contradictions show that either one or both of them were not telling the truth about landing on the moon .... In another interview in this same documentary , Ed Mitchell literally shoved Sibrel out of his house and then Mitchell's son threaten to call the FBI to have Sibrel "waxed" !!!  

So I ask you , are these the actions of truthful men who have nothing to hide ? ... Neil Armstrong refused to be interviewed as usual but when Sibrel did manage to get him on camera and asked him to swear on the Bible that he walked on the moon , he refused to do so  ... And when Sibrel confronted John Young with the same offer , Young also refused to swear on the Bible and then ran away as fast as he could , threatening to knock Sibrel in the head ...

Why would National heros , the only men to have ever allegedly set foot on the moon , act like guilty criminals ? .... I have read where Neil Armstrong doesn't even have any Apollo moon items or photographs his home .... There are pictures of his career as a test pilot ( something which he is the most proud of ) and also pictures and items from his other accomplishments , displayed in his home....  but not even one photo or item about his moon mission !?!? ... The first man to walk on another planet , and nothing to show for it in his home among his other souvineers ? ... Why not ? ....  And when Neil is forced out into the public to make a brief speech at some place like a college about his alleged moon trip , he utters enigmatic statements which include words such as ... "peeling back the layers of truth " , as tears fill his eyes .... WTF ???  

You and I everyone else who believes that Apollo was a hoax,  know that something was not only not well with the entire Apollo Program ,  but is still not well with any of the Apollo astronauts ... Not emotionally anyway ... As far as physically goes , they all seem to be a bit too healthy, considering their stressful space flights and their exposure to deep space radiation .

Could NASA have threatend their astronauts into silence , as you suggested is a possibility ? ... And could NASA have permanently silenced Grissom because he was a "loose cannon" and was possibly getting ready to blow the whislte and the lid off of the entire Apollo hoax ? .... Unfortunately , these are questions we may never know the answers to .

It obviously was inspirational!

Every piece of previously thrashed speculation seems to have re-surfaced in a single inspired post.
The gist seemed to work!

You are indeed the devil's advocate yes.gif

There is a reason for the fact that these questions may never have answers provided for them.

This is because, as has been clearly shown in the past, these questions are based upon imaginative speculation, and have no background in the facts of the matter.  

The actual answers...

Could they have done this?
Yes, of course they could have done this, especially in your world, where everything seems to point directly to foul play.    

But the real question is:
Would they have done this?  Would they have silenced a national hero, who spoke his mind, like many others in the program did at the very same time?  Would they have murdered him, as well as a 31 year old rookie astronaut, and Ed White, another national hero, while at the same time risking millions of dollars of equipment, and many other lives at the same time?
Would they have put them selves in the position they found themselves in, a high degree of negative public scrutiny, and an even higher degree of Congressional scrutiny...getting grilled in hearings for months?
Could they have actually gotten away with murdering people, and have it remain a hush-hush secret for 40 years?

Of course not.


One of course can hold fast to his or her most cherished beliefs for as long as one breathes.  However, the actual evidence speaks for itself in this case, and in the case of the Apollo program, and in no case has any proof of fakery, nor, in this particular case, of murder, ever been put forth.

I am frequently amazed at the lengths HBs will go to in order to come up with some speculative tid bit that points to some inconsistency.   Perhaps, if that same energy was put forth into learning about the actual facts of these matters, then there wouldn't be incessant reiterations of the same worn out arguments...

Not everything in my world points to foul play .... Only situations which could possibly be foul play , for obvious reasons ... but like I said before , these questions might never be answered one way another .

I haven't gone to any lenghts to discover how strange all of the Apollo astronauts act ... All one has to do is to watch them being interviewed to see that everything I posted above is not any kind of speculation on my part , but rather exactly how they have conducted themselves when being asked questions they don't know how to answer ...This is not just my "belief" , but rather the way it is ....

The Apollo program is considered to be a hoax by millions of people for very good reasons , whether you like that fact or not .... Not everyone sees Apollo in the same light as you do ... and it's time that you allowed others to express their opinions without trying to make them look like they don't know what they're talking about ...

If you don't believe me , just watch the documentary 'Astronauts Gone Wild' ... Then you can see the astronauts contradicting each other's stories about going to the moon .... It was pretty embarrassing , to say the least ... and I don't remember this being discussed to the point of being considered " incessant reiterations of the same worn out arguments " ....  

If you have a rebuttal as to why they would have contradicted each others stories about the effects of the Van Allen radiation belts or why Alan Bean didn't know anything about the belts or if Apollo 12 had even gone high enough to have encountered them  .... or why the Apollo 11 astronauts acted like they were attending their own funerals instead of their press conference , where they couldn't even get their stories straight about seeing any stars , ... or why Neil Armstrong doesn't display any Apollo items in his home when he was allegedly the first human to step onto the moon , then by all means , rebutt away .

As far as Grissom's death goes , that of course IS sheer speculation because no one can prove that any foul play was involved.

I tell you what makes someone like like they don't know what they are talking about...
  • posting articles in which the science is clearly wrong.
  • posting articles which contradict each other.
  • stating that it is impossible to go to the moon time after time and then claiming "maybe we did go to the moon using alien technology"
  • admitting that a site is unreliable and then later quoting that site as evidence.
  • claiming you do not need to understand the science to know that it is wrong.
  • claiming that the conspiracy was easy to pull off because a compartmentalised NASA meant very few people knew the truth whilst also claiming that the Soviet Union and all other nations capable of tracking spacecraft were in on the conspiracy
  • claiming the lunar module looks wrong whilst admitting that you don't know what it should really look like.
  • claiming that the astronauts were in low earth orbit when they should have been on the moon, then saying that maybe the returned to earth then admitting actually you don't know where they were but they weren't on the moon
  • claiming that van Braun collected the "moon rocks" from Antarctica and then later claiming that a secret unmanned project brought the rocks back from the moon.
  • claiming that computer technology was insufficient for a manned mission yet was adequate for a complex unmanned mission.
  • persisting in posting evidence from a man who admitted to Congress that he was not qualified in the area he claimed to be an expert in.
At various times you have done all these things. Your version of events changes with every post you make. The only thing consistent is that you have presented not one piece of evidence which backs up your claims. It is your own actions which make it evident you don't know what you are talking about not those of MID.

"posting articles in which the science is clearly wrong." ...

What articles have I posted with wrong science ?

"posting articles which contradict each other."

Which articles have I posted which contradict each other ? ... Conspiracy information is written by different people with various different opinions about all of this ... So yes,  some of it can be contradictory at times  ... but that doesn't make it all incorrect .

"stating that it is impossible to go to the moon time after time and then claiming "maybe we did go to the moon using alien technology"  ".

No contradiction there ... I doubt that Apollo could have landed men on the moon but reversed engineered alien technology possibly could have .

"admitting that a site is unreliable and then later quoting that site as evidence."

What site did I do this with ?

"claiming you do not need to understand the science to know that it is wrong"

I don't know much about science but it doesn't take a scientist to see that everything was wrong with Apollo .

"claiming that the conspiracy was easy to pull off because a compartmentalised NASA meant very few people knew the truth whilst also claiming that the Soviet Union and all other nations capable of tracking spacecraft were in on the conspiracy  "

I never made the claim that the Russians tracked Apollo to the moon because they didn't have the tracking capability to do so until 1972 , after the Apollo program had already ended ... No one tracked Apollo to the moon ... Not even the Jodrell Bank observatory in the UK , which did have the tracking capabilities ....NASA had them under contract to track every mission before Apollo , for some very strange reason left them out of the loop during the Apollo missions and wouldn't give them the tracking contract or the tracking coordinates .... Not even Goldstone , Parkes or Honeysuckle Creek had the capabilities to track the Apollo crafts to the moon ... All they did was to receive the TV transmissions , which were bounced OFF of the moon and then routed directly to the back room at mission control , where NASA had complete control of the TV picture that was broadcast in the most unsusal way to the rest of the world .

"claiming the lunar module looks wrong whilst admitting that you don't know what it should really look like."

The LM's not only looked ridiculous , but NASA was apparently so ashamed of them that the FBI ordered all of the blueprints to them be destroyed ... So now no one will be able to see if they really were able to fly to the moon or not .

"claiming that the astronauts were in low earth orbit when they should have been on the moon, then saying that maybe the returned to earth then admitting actually you don't know where they were but they weren't on the moon"

I remember claiming that the astronauts never left LEO , but don't remember saying anything else about their whereabouts for the duration of the 'moon' trip ....  There is some speculation that they splashed down immediately , and then the capsule was taken back up by a military transport plane and dropped for the splashdown later on TV ...  There is also speculation that they orbited the Earth for the duration of the mission and then re-entered Earth's atmosphere for the splashdown ... As for what I personally believe , I don't remember ever mentioning it before .

"claiming that van Braun collected the "moon rocks" from Antarctica and then later claiming that a secret unmanned project brought the rocks back from the moon."

It is a fact that Von Braun went to the Antarctic two years prior to Apollo 11 on a geology expedition ... It is also a fact that moon rocks have been found in the Antarctic ...  As far as unmanned missions go , the Russians brought back their moon rocks using them , so why not the Americans also ? ... Moon rocks could have come from the Antarctic and the moon , using unmanned missions .... So there is no contradiction there either .

"claiming that computer technology was insufficient for a manned mission yet was adequate for a complex unmanned mission."

I'm not sure how complex the unmanned missions were , but the computer technology was obviously available to land unmanned missions on the moon because both the Russians and the Americans apparently landed several of them there , several times ....  Manned missions on the other hand , would have faced completely different problems ... Namely , radiation on the lunar surface , radiation in deep space and also radiation in the Van Allen belts ...  And since the Apollo astronaut's never bothered to measure the radiation levels on the lunar surface,  when they allegedly had six missions to do so , it is highly doubtful if humans would even be able to walk on the moon without becoming seriously ill from the effects of that radiation .

"persisting in posting evidence from a man who admitted to Congress that he was not qualified in the area he claimed to be an expert in."

What man are you talking about ? ... Tom Barron ? ... If so , why did NASA hire him to investigate the Apollo Program's many technical problems,  if he wasn't qualified to do so ? .. And more importantly , why was he killed and then his "unqualified" report immediately stolen out of his car , never to be seen again ?

So once again , you have twisted my post comments and articles around to mean something they didn't   ... A habit which you insist on doing almost every time I post about this subject .

False. Russia did have the tracking capability.  They had already tracked their own probes there as well including the Zond 5 which carried live animals around the moon.

This was waspie's accusation about what I suppossedly claimed .

"claiming that the conspiracy was easy to pull off because a compartmentalised NASA meant very few people knew the truth whilst also claiming that the Soviet Union and all other nations capable of tracking spacecraft were in on the conspiracy"

Not only did I never make this ridiculous claim , Russia did not track Apollo to the moon .... If the Russians tracked their own craft it's because they set up the entire mission and also set up their own tracking coordinates .

The Russians never tracked Apollo ... And neither did anyone else  .. No one at that time had the capability to track an American craft on a trajectory to the moon except for Jodrell Bank and they were not allowed to have the Apollo contract , nor were they ever given any of the tracking coordinates to any of the Apollo missions ....They had been under contract for all of NASA's previous missions which took place in LEO ... but were not given any contract for Apollo .... Don't you find that just the least bit strange ?  

All the Russians did was to listen into the Apollo voice transmissions , as did several other countries ... and those transmissions could very well have been coming from LEO.

I would rather be in the minority and know the truth , than to be in the majority and be in denial of the truth .

Actually you are correct there while most people assume the russians tracked apollo... that in itself sounds like a conspiracy.

"posting articles in which the science is clearly wrong." ...  What articles have I posted with wrong science ?

The simple answer to this is "most of them" however, specifically every post in which it is claimed that stars shows appear in the Apollo photographs is scientifically wrong (and you've postd a lot of them).

"posting articles which contradict each other." ... Which articles have I posted which contradict each other ?

Well how about this from Wagging the Moondoggie

Quote

Some scientists have claimed that the suits worn by the astronauts would not have protected them from the temperature extremes present on the moon. Due to the lack of atmosphere, the temperature in the sun would have been somewhere around +250 degrees. Stepping into the shadows, it would have dropped instantly to -250 degrees.


And this from the link you provide in Rethinking NASA's Version of History

Quote

Objects which are heated cannot be cooled off by space. In order for an object to cool it must first be removed from direct sunlight. Oh, sure, objects which are in the shade of another object will eventually cool off, but not because space is "cold". Space is not cold. Hot and cold do not exist in the near-absolute vacuum of space. Since the vacuum of space is the ultimate insulator, objects take a very long time to cool even when removed from all sources of heat.


Bold emphasis is mine in both cases.

No contradiction, you are having a laugh. Let's assume that you are right about reverse engineered technology. Now we'll aply some critical thinking ans see what it does to your claims.

If NASA had alien technology how can you be sure this was not incorporated into the Lunar Module? Answer: you can't thus your claim that the LM could not have landed on the moon is blown away. If NASA had the capability to land on the Moon then all your claims that the Moon rocks must have been brought back from Antarctica and/or the moon using unmanned spacecraft are blown away. If NASA could land men on the Moon all your arguments that the photographs must be fake are blown away. Basically your claim about alien technology invalidates EVERY previous argument you have ever put forward. If that's not a contradiction then my dictionary definition is incorrect.

All they did was to receive the TV transmissions , which were bounced OFF of the moon and then routed directly to the back room at mission control , where NASA had complete control of the TV picture that was broadcast in the most unsusal way to the rest of the world .


I concede that you may not have made this claim (S3th certainly did). If that is the case I apologise for the mistake. However the fact that you claim that Apollo was not tracked by anyone when it was tracked visually by many astronomers (both amateur and professional) rather backs up my claims that it is YOU not MID that makes it look like you don't know what you are talking about.

"claiming the lunar module looks wrong whilst admitting that you don't know what it should really look like." .... The LM's not only looked ridiculous , but NASA was apparently so ashamed of them that the FBI ordered all of the blueprints to them be destroyed ... So now no one can see if they really were able to fly to the moon or not .

As usual ignoring thee facts. There are several flight worthy LMs in museums, including one in the Smithsonian. If your nonsense is true why were these not destroyed?

"claiming that the astronauts were in low earth orbit when they should have been on the moon, then saying that maybe the returned to earth then admitting actually you don't know where they were but they weren't on the moon" ... I remember claiming that the astronauts never left LEO , but don't remember saying anything else about their whereabouts for the duration of the 'moon' trip ....  There is some speculation that they splashed down immediately , and then the capsule was taken back up by a military transport plane and dropped for the splashdown later on TV ...  There is also speculation that they orbited the Earth for the duration of the mission and then re-entered Earth's atmosphere for the splashdown ... As for what I personally believe , I don't remember ever mentioning it before .

You have a point here, you NEVER say what you actually believe you just offer contradictory theories neither of which have any evidence to support them and considerable evidence (which you always ignore) to indicate they are wrong. I have personally asked you on at least 4 occasions why, if Apollo was in LEO, it was never seen. You have failed to answer every time.

"claiming that van Braun collected the "moon rocks" from Antarctica and then later claiming that a secret unmanned project brought the rocks back from the moon." ... It is a fact that Von Braun went to the Antarctic two years prior to Apollo 11 on a geology expedition ... It is also a fact that moon rocks have been found in the Antarctic ...  As far as unmanned missions go , the Russians brought back their moon rocks using them , so why not the Americans also ? ... Moon rocks could have come from the Antarctic and the moon , using unmanned missions .... So there is no contradiction there either .

Your latest answer is the silliest yet. How could von Braun (an engineer NOT a geologist) possibly have known that the Antarctic rocks would match the lunar samples (which as has been pointed out to you over and over again they don't0 BEFORE the rocks were returned from the Moon?

"claiming that computer technology was insufficient for a manned mission yet was adequate for a complex unmanned mission." .... I'm not sure how complex the unmanned missions were , but the computer technology was obviously available to land unmanned missions on the moon because both the Russians and the Americans apparently landed several of them there , several times ....  Manned missions on the other hand , would have faced completely different problems ... Namely , radiation on the lunar surface , radiation in deep space and also radiation in the Van Allen belts ...  And since the Apollo astronaut's never bothered to measure the radiation levels on the lunar surface,  when they allegedly had six missions to do so , it is highly doubtful if humans would even be able to walk on the moon without becoming seriously ill from the effects of that radiation .

This answer totally fails to address the question. The question was how could technology be sufficiently advanced to carry out a complex unmanned mission but not advanced enough to land a manned mission. The radiation levels are totally irrelevant to this point. If technology was advanced enough to land a craft with out people on board it follows it MUSY have been advanced enough to land a spacecraft with men on board. Since you concede that the unmanned missions took place (and have even invented some new ones) it follows that your arguments about technology not being advanced enough are blown away by your own arguments.

And more importantly , why was he killed and then his "unqualified" report immediately stolen out of his car , never to be seen again ?

Trying to change the subject again. You know very well that I am referring to Jack White and you know very well that he admitted to congress that he had no qualifications in photo-analysis. You also know full well that despite the fact it is a field he is not qualified in he persists in calling himself a professional photoanalyst.

Your stock accusation whenever your contradictions are highlighted. There is no need to twist your words, direct quotes are all that are needed as I have demonstrated on 10 of my 11 points.

Wow Waspie , you really did some time consuming homework here just to bust my chops ... It would appear that you are even more desperate to try to refute my Apollo hoax claims than MID is !

First of all , I didn't write those two articles so I would have no way of knowing if one paragraph in either of them were contradictory in any respect to the other ...  This is conspiracy information written by different people with different opinions .... and therefore none of it is written in stone .

The geocities site posted a picture of the lunar buggy that was taken from a museum setting and claimed it was something different ... This could have been a legtimate mistake on their part or it could have been intentionally misleading ... I would have no way of knowing which ..... But when I was shown that the information was incorrect , I admitted it was incorrect and stopped using that site as evidence because I didn't believe it could be trusted to be accurate anymore ....

Werner Von Braun did go to the Antarctic on a geology expedition two years prior to Apollo 11 , and it was highly suspicious that a NASA Apollo rocket scientist would make such a trip unless there was a very good reason to go there .....  For all we know , all of the moon rocks could have been picked up there and none of them really came directly from the moon .... The same goes for the Russian samples .... After all , all we have to verify where they really came from is Russia and NASA ... neither of which can be trusted .

This discussion , until you intentionally derailed it , was about Gus Grissom's death and Tom Baron's testamony and alleged suicide ....  So I thought you were refering to him with your statement about congressional hearings ... I had no idea that Jack White was the target of your distain in this context ... Neither did I remember that Jack had testified to congress about his photo analysis .... So your accusations against me about this are completely unfounded also .

I will repeat this once more ... No one tracked Apollo outside of low earth orbit ....  The amatuer astronomers you mentioned only tracked the missions in LEO because if the Russians couldn't track Apollo to the moon and Goldstone and Parkes and Honeysuckle Creek couldn't track Apollo to the moon , then how could you possibly think that some amateur yahoos in their back yards could track Apollo to the moon  ? ...That is absolutely absurd !

And let me make this point very clear so you can't pretend to misunderstand me again ...

It is a POSSIBILITY that reversed engineered alien technology could have been flown to the moon because none of us have any idea what has been taking place at top secret bases , such as Area 51 .

But the Apollo Program never flew any of their Apollo craft to the moon because their 1969 conventional space flight technology was obviously a joke ....  It is a possibility that Apollo was just a smoke screen for the real stealth technology being advanced , tested and flown behind the scenes ...So there is NO CONTRADICTION there either .

The point is this ... Apollo was a hoax , regardless of whether it was a smoke screen for stealth technology or just a public relations publicity stunt for America to look good ... The nation had been completely torn apart by the immoral and illegal Viet Nam war .. and what better way to distract the entire country and also the world by showing them something postive and happy for a change ? ... Like pretending to land men on the moon ! ... And what better way to beat the evil Russians to the moon and 'win' the not only the space race but the entire cold war as well !

You also mentioned that if stealth technology had gotten men to the moon that all of the Apollo conspircy evidence would be blown away ... but I don't understand your reasoning here at all .... The Apollo photos were faked because the Apollo missions were faked ... It doesn't get any clearer than that .... All of the rest is just pure speculation .

Oh , and an Apollo LM sitting behind ropes in a NASA museum somewhere is NOT proof that it can fly either ...Just as unmanned missions landing on the moon is not proof of manned missions having landed there ....

NASA doesn't have the technology today to send manned missions to the moon for one simple reason ... They NEVER had it to begin with .... DEEP SPACE RADIATION was , still is , and will continue to be what is known in the scientific community of rocket scientists , as the SHOW STOPPER of manned missions to the moon and Mars !

I even predict that NASA's future planned unmanned and then robotic missions to the moon , will be the definitive proof that will finally blow the lid right off of the entire Apollo Program and blow NASA's claims of landing manned missions there almost 40 years ago , right out of the water ! ... Scientists are the first to admit that they don't know much about the moon at all ... and that the radiation levels on the lunar surface are a complete unknown also .

And one last point .... You asked where I thought the Apollo astronauts were during the duration of their 'moon' landings ? .... Well , there are several possibilities .... Some people believe that they continued to circle the Earth in LEO for the duration of the 'lunar' landings .... but then the NASA defenders always make the claim that they would have been detected and tracked if they had stayed in LEO ....   Others believe that they immediately splashed down in a secluded place far out to sea , to be taken back up by military transport plane for the spashdown later on TV .. And some folks believe that they never launched the astronauts at all , but only sent up an empty Saturn V rocket and CSM , while the astronauts filmed their weightless scenes in the same fashion the actors filmed them for the Apollo 13 movie .

I had never really given much thought to where the astronauts really were , but given these choices , I'm gonna go with door number three !  thumbsup.gif

This is untrue. You used it as evidence 13 days later. I have provide the link for everyone to see. You used it despite knowing it was unreliable.

I did not have to do much research, you see I actually read and understand what is being said and remember how contradictory you are. You don't even remember your own posts which is no doubt why you go round in circles making the same mistakes over and over again.

So how did I know they were contradictory? Well I actually read them and understood them.

This is the sort of mistake you make when you don't understand the science. This statement from you alone shows that you do not have the skills necessary to argue your beliefs. It is not MID that makes it look like you don't know what you are talking about but you yourself. This admission that you can't know whether the contents of the posts you copy and paste / link to is a de facto admission that you don't know what you are talking about, so quit laying the blame at other peoples door.

Several people including myself have suggested that, as you have invested so much time in this hoax nonsense, that you take some time to research the basic science behind it. You have always seen this as some sort of insult. It was never any such thing it was a helpful suggestion, which you rejected out of hand. Why are you so scared of learning something that may help you? Is it because once you understand the science you are scared that you finally see that you have been backing the wrong horse all this time?

I will repeat this once more ... No one tracked Apollo outside of low earth orbit


I will repeat this once more. Apollo was tracked. It is IMPOSSIBLE to mistake a vehicle in LEO for one on a trans-lunar trajectory. Your claim that Russia could have been mistaken ia voice signal from LEO when they were on the Moon is nonsense. For this the Russians would have had to be so stupid that they would not notice that there antennae were pointing in the wrong direction and that the signal they were tracking would disappear every few minutes and reappear an orbit later. Of course if you understood the science you would know how silly this claim of yours is. There is a difference between you and I. I have presented a link to back up my claim. All you offer is your opinion and you admit you don't understand the science. So what does that make your opinion worth?

So you never gave it much thought despite the fact that you claim to have studied this subject for years? Some researcher!

At least we have something in common. If you believe that Saturn V was launched unmanned then we are both agreed that Sibrel and Percy & Bennett are liars. If the astronauts never left Earth then they couldn't have been ie LEO putting transparencies in front of the CM window to make the Earth look distant. If they couldn't have done that the Sibrel's and Percy & Bennett's evidence is unreliable. So I take it you won't be linking to them any more will you? Mind you past experience shows that you will continue to link to sites even after you admit they are unreliable so I won't be holding my breath.

MID is not, and never has been desperate to refute your claims.  He has done so time and again, without a great deal of strain.  This was done intitially to educate you.  However, time has shown that you persist.  Therefore, my efforts are geared toward pointing the facts out for those who may come here and see your incessant diatribes about unsubstantiated ideas.

Waspie is not attempting to bust your chops, as you say.  He is pointing out the inconsistency in your arguments, and the fact that everything you insist on re-hashing has already been dispensed with.

As has been pointed out to you before, Dr. von Braun was an adventurer.  He did many things.  His visit to Antarctica was a vacation trip.  It is not highly suspect that anyone would go where he or she would wish on his or her vacation.  It had nothing to do with his work.  In fact, he was away from his work.  The "very good reason" was the same reason anyone goes on a vacation...

Quote

For all we know , all of the moon rocks could have been picked up there and none of them really came directly from the moon ....



No, as has also been repeatedly said, only about 20 pounds of Antarctic lunar samples have ever been collected.  This, as opposed to about 800 pounds of lunar samples returned from the Apollo lunar missions...ALL of which are different, and easily distinguished from the Antarctic samples, as the Antarctic samples are all changed in character by virtue of ablation produced by their entry into the Earth's atmosphere.  


You see?
You keep re-hashing already completely fleshed-out and explained  ideas.

This is of course pointed out for those who are actually curious about these things....


Quote

But the Apollo Program never flew any of their Apollo craft to the moon because their 1969 conventional space flight technology was obviously a joke ....
Same principal exactly.
It obviously did fly.  It obviously did succeed.  
You have never shown anything which indicates that 1969 space flight technology was "a joke", nor have ever illustrated a single example of how that is allegedly so.

You have never understood that flying to the Moon was perfectly possible with the technology we developed for the purpose.   Nor apparently, have you ever investigated any of the myriad information provided you, so that you may learn about this technology.


Quote

The Apollo photos were faked because the Apollo missions were faked ... It doesn't get any clearer than that .... All of the rest is just pure speculation .



This is perhaps the greatest illustration of what we're dealing with here.
Pure speculation.   Nothing you've presented has any basis in science, and is completely speculative.  There is absolutely no evidence that the photos were faked.  On the contrary, they are all normal.  

What is actually clear is that you believe...too much.
