Yeah....it was a hoax The new footage soon to be released will be scrutinised and questioned to death. Nice pic...love the doors.
by the way..adding a little more contrast to the photographer would help maybe...darker shadow.
My dad worked for Whirlpool which was part of RCA at that time. They built the computers onboard the Apollo CSM and LM. All of the things he showed and told about to us kids could not have been for nothing. We did it.
IT IS NOT A HOAX. Elvis lives there and so does JFK's assassin. ps. who's the folding chair for.
If we did really go to the Moon, then explain how we got our astronauts through The Van Allen radiation belt without giving them cancer or completely melting out their eyeballs. This is the biggest concern about going to the Moon today but it didn't seem to bother anyone back then. They even keep the shuttles below this belt. The reason Whirlpool was involved is because the LEM and orbiter were made out of old washing machines that would never have survived the Van Allen belt let alone insulate the astronauts from -455 degrees Fahrenheit to 253 degrees Fahrenheit. On the chop, I like the idea and the erratic shadowing doesn't bother me because the "real" Moon landings had some iffy shadowing. But what's up with the guy in Blue. He looks all mucked up.
Hey Jerry, You are right about the radiation. As I understand it the radiation is only "deadly" during solar flare ups. Did they get irradiated. Yes, but not enough to kill. Even flying in an airliner, you get some radiation. As for temps. The gold foil on the LM reflected most of the solar heat gain along with dual bulkhead plates. The oxygen supply to the liquid cooled "white reflective" suits were in spheres in the backpack and pressurized to 6000 psi. As oxygen flowed to the astronaut it expanded like freon and went through a heat exchanger and cooled the suit. Same thing in the LM.
Interesting. Solar flares are also becoming unpredictable. Recently there was a huge flare that reached Earth in only minutes and no one predicted it. Guess it comes with the job.
Well, at least we solved your heating and cooling problems though
Yes, all questions answered, except who is the folding chair for..
General: The camera guy needs a place to sit afterwards waiting fot the next photo set-up. I would think it is just for 'anyone' who wants to sit - that being someone else off screen, as well.
Great choice of a news story. Hilariously illustrated. We will be running a moon hoax contest now.
