With all due respect rpenner, but we don't have sufficient proof, that we actually have the moon rocks,
a news reporter jumps on TV and states that a TV decided to fly, because NASA wanted it to, in my opinion , i reckon you would believe them
we don't have proof that there are moon rocks here on earth brought back......
and the American "broadcast" was a fake, many websites offer considerable amount of evidence to support this fact
Pure crackpottery. I took a look at one of your sites, the APFN site. The following caught my eye:
9 SPACE ODDITIES:
1. Apollo 14 astronaut Allen Shepard played golf on the Moon. In front of a worldwide TV audience, Mission Control teased him about slicing the ball to the right. Yet a slice is caused by uneven air flow over the ball. The Moon has no atmosphere and no air.
2. A camera panned upwards to catch Apollo 16's Lunar Landerlifting off the Moon. Who did the filming?
3. One NASA picture from Apollo 11 is looking up at Neil Armstrong about to take his giant step for mankind. The photographer must have been lying on the planet surface. If Armstrong was the first man on the Moon, then who took the shot?
4. The pressure inside a space suit was greater than inside a football. The astronauts should have been puffed out like the Michelin Man, but were seen freely bending their joints.
5. The Moon landings took place during the Cold War. Why didn't America make a signal on the moon that could be seen from earth? The PR would have been phenomenal and it could have been easily done with magnesium flares.
6. Text from pictures in the article said that only two men walked on the Moon during the Apollo 12 mission. Yet the astronaut reflected in the visor has no camera. Who took the shot?
7. The flags shadow goes behind the rock so doesn't match the dark line in the foreground, which looks like a line cord. So the shadow to the lower right of the spaceman must be the flag. Where is his shadow? And why is the flag fluttering if there is no air or wind on the moon?
8. How can the flag be brightly lit when its side is to the light? And where, in all of these shots, are the stars?
9. The Lander weighed 17 tons yet the astronauts feet seem to have made a bigger dent in the dust. The powerful booster rocket at the base of the Lunar Lander was fired to slow descent to the moons service. Yet it has left no traces of blasting on the dust underneath. It should have created a small crater, yet the booster looks like it's never been fired.
My responses follow the numbering of the "Oddities."
1. When the line about the slice was uttered, Shepard had just muffed his shot
and drove the ball two or three feet. It wasn't really a slice.
2. The Lunar Rover was left on the surface, and it had a video camera that could be remotely controlled from Earth. Even a basic amount of research should have uncovered this fact.
3. The author is probably confusing Armstrong with Aldrin.
4. Pressure inside Apollo spacesuits was around 3.7-3.9 psi. American footballs
are pressurized to 12.5Ė13.5 psi, so we've already caught them in a lie. Also, a football feels hard because its material can't stretch much. When you press on one side, the internal volume of the football decreases because other parts of the football can't stretch to compensate. Because the volume is decreasing, the pressure must increase, and thus it takes a considerable amount of work to indent the side of a football. Spacesuits are designed differently. When a joint is flexed, the volume of air in the inner side of the joint decreases but special folds called gores on the outer side of the joint unfold and increase the air volume there. The net result is no change in volume, no change in pressure, and hence very little work to flex the joint. See this wiki article
for more details.
5. Even with modern telescopes scientists feel lucky when they see a blast
on the dark side equivalent to 70 kg of TNT. A magnesium flare would release a lot less energy and spread it out over a large period of time. Seeing such a flare on the sunlit side with 60s or 70s era equipment would have been impossible.
6. They had their cameras mounted on their chests. No good trying to bring a camera to your face when there's a glass bubble in the way. The idiot that wrote number 6 must have looked at the photo for half a second before deciding he didn't see a camera.
7. The photo referred to is an interesting one. What the hoaxer has failed to realize is that the astronaut in this photo has decided to jump and salute simultaneously. The astronaut's shadow is there, but significantly lower down than one might expect if one was unaware of the jump (which is a nice high jump considering the bulky spacesuit, evidence of low gravity). There are some other thin shadows in the area, one due to the flag. Considering the rocks and scientific equipment scattered around the area it's hard to say what is what, especially since this version of the photo is such low resolution. The flapping flag has been discussed already in this thread, not that a still photo can show flapping.
8. Oh where are those stars. This is the classic moon-hoax argument, and it displays a basic ignorance of photography. The stars aren't there because the photographer didn't want to overexpose the shot. And the brightly lit flag? Just by the photo one can see that it wasn't completely parallel with the sun light. It is also partially lit by light reflected from the lunar surface. And the flag is newly unfurled and clean, whereas the astronaut and everything else is covered with dark lunar soil.
9. The Lunar Module's pads were given a large surface area specifically to spread the weight out. Even so, they were capable of depressing the soil far more than the astronauts did, as can clearly be seen in the following photo. The comments about the "booster" seem out of context, probably referring to a photo that isn't shown on the site. The engine was cut off before landing so it's not surprising there isn't a blast crater.
This is what happens every time I read a Moon hoax site. Almost every single claim can be proven false with a few minutes of research.
