The only sufficient evidence would be a camcorder on board the shuttle that recorded the trip from start to finish - the fsct that there isnt even a single minute of video documented travel on the trip just goes to show it was likely bogus. Brb biggest and most amazing journey ever undertaken but lets not film it meanwhile film everything else.

Apollo missions brought back like 200kg of Moon rocks and there has never been a peer reviewed paper that disputed that the rocks came from any other than the Moon. In order to bring back that amount of Moon rock would require something like 1000 probe missions, all of which would have to go undetected and all be launched in something like a 5 year window.

>They got them from Antarctica
We didn't realise you can find Moon rocks in Antarctica until like 20 years after the landing and we were only certain they came from the Moon by comparing them to the Apollo rocks, the rocks went unidentified as moon rocks for years.

They simply ignored that back then because beating the eternal russian was more important.

Pretty much this. I'd be willing to believe them, especially with the Russians not disputing anything, but with the amount of shit that was haphazardly lost and the relative weakness of the positive evidence I wouldn't be surprised if it was faked.

When I made that post I very very nearly included a bit about how I know they sent Von Braun to Antarctica and how for some strange reason they think he went to get Moon rocks.

Tell me Anon, Von Braun knows literally nothing about geology, why would they send HIM to get Moon rocks? Do you just assume that bc he was important to the program that he did literally everything?

As I already mentioned anyway, geologists didn't realise you could find Moon rocks in Antarctica until 1982. If there was a geologist who did know that you bet he'd publish a paper on it and become famous in his field. If you don't believe in the Moon landings you're putting the entire field of geology in with the conspirators.

> If there was a geologist who did know that you bet he'd publish a paper on it and become famous in his field.
Yes because how many geologists, particularly in the 60s, went to Antarctica to sample rocks? They had to go to Antarctica because it was and still is the most secluded and protected place in the world.

>If you don't believe in the Moon landings you're putting the entire field of geology in with the conspirators.
Utter nonsense and a complete straw man fallacy.

Moon landing is fake, NASA couldnt make it against the soviets so they made it up, doing a staged scene like that is very easy, specially for a country with literally Hollywood.

Obviously I don't think he went on his own, it's just that the only reason people say "Von Braun went to Antarctica" instead of "some employees of NASA went" is that they think his name will help convince more people of their conspiracy when his presence wouldn't have been any use in finding Lunar meteorites, why even send him if that's what they went for? Why announce the expedition if they're there to help a secret conspiracy?

>Yes because how many geologists, particularly in the 60s, went to Antarctica to sample rocks?
Exactly my point, such a geologist doesn't exist, that's the point.
How the fuck did NASA know that lunar meteorites could be found there when the first one wasn't found until 1979? It wasn't identified as a moon rock until 1982, which they achieved by comparing it to the only rocks they knew for sure came from the Moon, the Apollo moon rocks.
You must realise the entire conspiracy relies on the fact that NASA somehow got ahold of nearly 400kg of rocks that geologists agree must have come from the Moon (I said 200kg before from memory but I just looked it up).
The conspiracy standard is that when NASA sent their Antarctica expedition they collected the rocks there since Antarctica is a good place to look for Lunar meteorites, but how plausible is this?
Somehow some geologist knew 10 years before anyone else that Lunar meteorites could be found in Antarctica and this geologist didn't tell anyone but NASA.
This geologist would have had to have found a way of identifying that this rock definitely came from the Moon (not just a meteorite or rare unique terrestrial rock but specifically a Moon rock) without comparing it to a sample of known Moon rock.

Additionally, this expedition somehow acquired 400kg of Moon rocks. It's been 36 years since the world learned about Lunar meteorites and in those 36 years a grand total of 190kg have been found, mostly not in Antarctica but in deserts in North Africa.
So how did NASA get theirs?
>>
>>10002423

>During the local summer of 1966–67, von Braun participated in a field trip to Antarctica, organized for him and several other members of top NASA management.[89] The goal of the field trip was to determine whether the experience gained by U.S. scientific and technological community during the exploration of Antarctic wastelands would be useful for the manned exploration of space.

>>
>>10002384
>>10000079

>>10002442
I'm not sure why you're telling me that, I know why they went. The whole point of the post is to point out how that expedition couldn't have been the source of NASA's Lunar meteorites.

Apollo 11 was tracked by the Madrid observatory for its whole mission duration. The observatory is now working with NASA in the DSN but at the time the observatory had no real affiliation with NASA and zero motivation to be a part of some conspiracy.
>>
>>10002455
I'll repeat, the goal of the field trip was to determine whether the experience gained by government scientists during the exploration of Antarctic wastelands would be useful for the exploration of space (aka moon mission).

Of all the numerous theories which claim they were faked, none that I've seen hold up to scrutiny and are demonstrably false. On the contrary the evidence in favor of the landings happening is overwhelming, and the theories on which they rely have been verified by both experimentation and application in modern technology. The evidence is clearly in favor of them being real, at this point it requires one to dismiss all evidence presented as fake or manipulated and numerous multi generational parties complicit in hiding the truth, which while possible is unlikely.

In the 1960s there was no internet, no cell phones, no social media for speed-of-light communication. In this day and age anybody can quickly read up on a subject like photography, physics, radiation, etc. and evaluate an event. When the moon landings happened, the average joe had no idea how rockets worked let alone what was needed to create a round trip mission to the moon. It was easy to fake a moon landing because few people on earth at the time could find out anything was wrong. People across the planet ate up NASA's lies without question.

Books existing that show their plan doesn't concern them for two reasons. 1. The amount of people who go out of their way to find the books that exist are extremely few. The populace is more than happy to live in the illusion that everything is wonderful. 2. The really damning books are purged. The "tell-all" volumes are hard to find. Try to find "Tragedy and Hope: A History of the World in Our Time" by Carroll Quigley. A historian who interacted and lived with the richest, most powerful people in his time. When demand for his history book was highest, the publisher stopped printing it and the printing plates were destroyed. The book outlines a history of the global elite's plans to run the world.

I would totally watch astronauts do science or explore the Moon. But I would not watch some 24/7 stream filming a vast expanse of nothing.` But bringing astronauts would cost even more money, hundreds of billions probably. Way more than any company would pay just to get content to put ads on.

Then you need to explain this bit, among other things:

>Additionally, this expedition somehow acquired 400kg of Moon rocks. It's been 36 years since the world learned about Lunar meteorites and in those 36 years a grand total of 190kg have been found, mostly not in Antarctica but in deserts in North Africa.

How did NASA manage to find 400 kg of them, when in the past 36 years only 190 kg have been found, mostly not even in Anatarctica?
>>
>>10002615
>lol, wat the government got Average Joe moonlander steel worker to lie about what he was really working on?

There's actually a more subtle point to come out of the logistics question.

In order to mount this huge conspiracy, they had to have thousands of workers build equipment to specs that could make a moon flight. Numerous attempts were made to build acceptable hardware, hardware (and software) that were not up to standards were were not acceptable. But for some reason, in spite of having built the equipment, they then faked the mission?

They built all the stuff they needed to go to the moon -- at that point, the easiest way to have everybody believe they went was just to go ahead and go.
>>
>>10002649
Any of the workers on the various contractors, or at NASA< would know if they did not actually build what it is claimed they built. They had to build engines that created safe and powerful amounts of thrust, they had to build fuel tanks that could stand up to the various stresses they would encounter, they have to build an onboard computer that could handle the needs of the mission while staying within the mass allowance... They had to build the stuff that would do what it needed to do to go to the moon.

If they didn't actually build that, they'd know, and you have to believe a conspiracy where hundreds or thousands of people knew it was fake and nobody ever spilled the beans.

If they DID build it as specified, then that explains why nobody ever ratted them out -- but you now have to believe they built the equipment needed to go to the moon but just never used it because... reasons.
>>
>>10002849
Interesting question.

Occasionally they try to answer, and reveal how little they know about the Saturn boosters.
>>
>>10002894
>Based on the fact that you can see the lunar landing sites with a telescope,

Stop that.

No Erthbound telescope can resolve anything as small as the Apollo hardware, so no Earthbound telescope can contribute anything to the discussion.

Nor can Hubble.

Lunar orbital probes can, and have, but then they scream "fake!" as if that settles anything. If Hubble could do it, they'd say that was faked too. If your backyard telescope could do it, they'd still scram "fake!" but their explanations for that would have to get even sillier.

Retard:

The actual hardware they were planning to use is sitting in museums in Russia. They wanted to go, and to tbeat the US, very, very badly. But in the end, they split their resources between two possible missions, their Soyuz craft developed problems on an unmanned circumlunar test flight, and their big booster to mount and Apollo-equivalent landing mission kept blowing up.

In the end, they even launched an unmanned probe to race Apollo 11 to a moon landing,in hopes of scooping up a hatfull of lunar soil and beating Apollo back to Earth with it. That one crashed attempting to land.

I think you're forgetting a key piece of information here - the people you're talking about who designed/built the rocket were none other than Nazis shipped over after WW2.

Now remember this too - why would someone working at NASA expose the fakery when they were "supposedly" in a race against Russia for dominance. It would be humiliating at a time when they needed the complete opposite. They of course, working for the government, would have signed NDAs too.
>>
>>10004789
There were hundreds of designrs and thousands of workers building Apollo hardware. Yes, a few of them were Germans who came over with von Braun after WWII, though many of those had left the program for better paying positions before Kennedy launched the race to the moon and NASA began to swim around in money, for a time.

They definitely wanted to land on the moon, they just didn't have a rocket that could do the job without exploding. They even kept trying after Apollo 11 had landed and returned.

Main problems were the Soviets couldn't into large cylindrical fuel tanks or large rocket engines. That made their moon rocket less efficient and far more complicated, having more stages and many more engines per stage. As such it had 4 failed launches and was canceled.
>>
>>10004662
Also, SpaceX manufactures it's own engines. The Merlin family and soon the Raptor family of engines.

You're referring to the RD-180 engine, which was a great engine and the Soviets deserve plenty of credit for designing it, but it was never used on any crewed NASA missions. It's also soon to be replaced by the American BE-4 engine.

Russia's space industry has done really well exporting tech and selling Soyuz tickets and commercial launches for the last decade or so, but they got lazy and didn't invest in new tech. Now they have no reusables, no heavy/super-heavy vehicles, and soon no one will be buying Soyuz tickets.

>>
>>9999241
Yes.

The more interesting question is, why has the last decade seen the explosive rise of retarded conspiracy theories about how the Earth is flat, we never went to the Moon, etc.

My take is that it's fueled by distrust in authority. Corporations and governments have been wrapping their shit up in the flag of ¡SCIENCE! for so long now, and been caught with their pants down on so many occasions, that trust in science itself has been seriously eroded.

You can only tell people that, e.g., "our new synthetic opiods totally aren't addictive" so many times before people just stop believing. Corporations use science as a marketing tool, with the result that people start looking at it as propaganda by default.

Combine that mindset with a generation raised on seemless photorealistic CGI, and all of this emerges quite organically.

Another factor is the eternal boomer turning his back in space so he could focus on weed, cummies, and feeding the third world. Their lack of will is the direct reason we don't already have bases on Mars. If we did, no one would be wondering if Kubrick faked the Moon landings on a sound stage.

That might be a factor, but the driving force behind it is the prevalence of the internet and social media. It used to be that you could have some wacky idea and maybe your friends would laugh at you and that would be it. Now you can connect with thousands of other people who share whatever crazy idea you can possibly come up with, you start watching youtube videos about it, which causes youtube's algorithm to recommend more wacky shit, you see comments from thousands of people who are all confirming your beliefs, and pretty soon you've been absorbed into an entirely different world.

The Apollo missions were independently tracked by numerous third parties including the most interested party- the SovUnion- as well as observatories in the UK, France, and Italy, as well as many privately owned university observatories in the US. The tracking included visual sightings and interceptions of radio communications.

Ffs the fact that the Soviets didn't immediately call bullshit when they were watching the skies is proof that they happened. The fact that the head of their lunar program- Vasiliy Mishin- was accused of failing to beat the Americans (the obvious implication being the Soviets really did believe we went to the Moon) and that he himself accepted we went there is just the icing on the cake.
>>
Has anyone who worked on the program ever come out and said it's fake? Or actual engineers/filmmakers/etc. saying "we couldn't have done that" or "it was totally filmed"

I know this wouldn't be a particularly strong point against a possible conspiracy (Bletchley Park kept the Ultra project to crack the Enigma code a secret for decades) but it would be interesting if there were people "in the know," as it were. who called bs on the official story.

Interesting thought... thats exactly how the towers should have fallen. So weird that they collapsed neatly inward.

Of course it's all just conspiritard nonsense anyhow; the NIST released a thorough and rigorous report afterall. It's not like they couldn't even analyze any of the actual steel beams from the wreckage because they were gathered up and sold to China before the bodies were even cold.

Nah.

A few items NASA had made or design. Velcro, tang, gator aide, flexible looking tube. Pushed development of computers. There are a set of mirrors left on the moon by the Apollo 11 mission. They can send a Lazer bounce it back and measure the distance to the moon. Apollo 13 only has 1 hour of breathable air when Crew Systems device, made from materials aboard the spacecraft, when how to make was radioed to the crew.

Radiation belts around the Earth were not discovered by the Russians, they were discovered by a Geiger counter aboard Explorer , an American satellite.

Why they are not really a factor in the Apollo program (or a soviet lunar mission, had they been able to launch one) can be Googled faster than I can type it.

You don't seriously believe Anon is looking for what actually happened, do you? He's just here to be edgy. Of course he knows he can use a search engine. What's the fun in that?
