| When testing the feasibility of humans in space, tests were first conducted using animals. No animal however was used to test a return Moon journey.
If a Moon landing was possible, in reality it was not, then surely it would make logical sense to send the astronaut who had the most space experience on the first Moon mission. An astronaut who had experienced long duration's of weightlessness in Earth orbit. Apollo 11 was Armstrong's second and final space mission, which of course was in low Earth orbit.
When mankind ventures into new, unknown territory, with great risks attached, the first person who makes that journey would, in all sense and reason, accompany the second person, or persons on a return journey for guidance, and essential procedures to prevent any mishaps occurring. Neither Armstrong, Aldrin, or any other Apollo astronaut for that matter accompanied fresh astronauts on that new journey. It is astonishing that all missions managed to land safely and take off again without a hitch, but they never got anywhere near to the Moon, which would of course explain why this was so.
Astronauts with the most space experience should be first in line for any round trip to the Moon, being a return journey of 500,000 miles. However for many of the Apollo astronauts, the alleged Moon landing was their FIRST AND ONLY space mission, which seems somewhat odd. Those first timers were also manning the communication consoles at mission control during other Apollo missions. There were in fact TWO communication links on all Apollo missions. The first was LAUNCH CONTROL, who communicated with the astronauts from the moment of launch, up until they were in Earth orbit. Once in Earth orbit, communication to the astronauts was transferred to those "limited few in the know" who were manning MISSION CONTROL. They had to do it this way so that LAUNCH CONTROL would not wise up to the fact that they were not going to the Moon at all. For what other reason would they have two separate communication links, and why is this practice not operated today?
In 1968 NASA Chief Astronaut, Deke Slayton, (one of the main perpetrators of faking Apollo), visited the film set of "2001 Space Odyssey", in the UK He referred to it as NASA East, and it was here that he got the idea for filming the mock lunar module, and command module separation and docking. Film of the alleged booster stage falling away from module was also sequenced on Kubrick's film set. Think about it, how could you install a camera in the center part of a rocket booster engine without it being burned to a crisp? It can only be done on a film set, and why is it we only see this sequence, albeit repeated for each Apollo mission, only on the Moon missions, and not on any other space mission? TV pictures allegedly beamed back to Earth showing the lunar module separation, were razor sharp color images, why therefore were the TV transmissions from the Moon gray and fuzzy, after all they were supposedly transmitted across the same distance in space?
In Tim Furniss's book "One Small Step", there are numerous references to mechanical, electrical, and other problematic failures in practically EVERY Gemini and Apollo mission. It's unbelievable that the USA ever got into space at all, let alone to the Moon and back, which of course they did not. Many NASA space problems and failures continued long after the Apollo program, and still continue today. If NASA could achieve such amazing feats over 34 years ago, then space technology has gone backwards instead of forward.
In the 80's, at the height of the Reagan's Star Wars program, a shuttle was launched into space , and it's on board computer was programmed to "lock on" to a laser beam projected from the top of a 2,000 foot high mountain somewhere in the states. Unfortunately all distance measurements programmed into the shuttle's computer were registered as miles, consequently the "lock on" device aboard the shuttle began scanning the globe searching for a 2,000 mile high mountain. Unable to locate one, the shuttle turned on it's back, and began scanning outer space to search for the immortal 2,000 mile high mountain.
In the 90's, an American shuttle due to dock with the Mir space station, had a fuel leak, and was spraying out fuel as it approached Mir. Russia refused the shuttle to come anywhere Mir, until the leak had been repaired, in case the spewing fuel damaged the stations sensitive solar panels. Following the collapse of Communism in 1989, NASA scientists were allowed full access to Russia's space program and technology, under Communism this was highly top secret technology. What NASA scientists discovered shocked them. Russia had perfected a rocket engine which was 20 years ahead of anything that NASA had at time. This only reinforces the fact that Russia was way ahead of the USA in technology, and always had been. Even today NASA has to continually rely on Russian rockets to deliver cargo to the International Space Station because of ongoing problems with their shuttle.
Admittedly Russia has had the occasional problem/failure, however their problem/failure rate is substantially lower than that of the USA. Russia was of course the first in space with sputnik, an animal, a man, a woman, a space walk, and finally a space station. They were the first in everything to do with space. The USA were paranoid at the Soviet successes in space, as it could not be seen that a Communist country was leading the world in this new found technology.
It was after Shepherd's 15 minute sub orbital "space hop", that JFK made his now infamous speech that America should commit itself to landing a man on the Moon, and returning him safely to Earth, within 8 years. A bold, brash, and somewhat ridiculous statement to make following a 15 minute space hop a mere 69 miles above Earth, after all the Moon was over 250,000 miles away. Scientists knew there and then that it was an impossibility, but Kennedy had said it, and the USA would face ridicule if they could not achieve it.
By the mid to late 60's, NASA realized a Moon landing was totally impossible within 8 years. Top NASA officials met in secret, and decided the only option was to fake the Moon landing in 1969, in the hope that they would get there shortly after, whereby they could shroud the earlier faked missions with genuine Moon photographs and film.
Many point to President Richard (Tricky Dicky) Nixon as the main culprit behind the biggest lie ever inflicted on society. This however is incorrect because the idea's and planning which went into faking the Moon missions began in the early 60's, following Kennedy's now infamous speech to Congress. It was therefore L B Johnson who had the most inside knowledge and plans to fake the Moon mission, and it was he who made most of the Apollo material classified, with a declassification date of 2026. Nixon took office shortly before Apollo 11, but continued the lies under guidance from the CIA in order to boost American pride which was at an all time low. Every US President from L B J up to Dubya Bush are fully aware that the Moon missions were faked, but CIA have the upper hand when it comes to American security, and pride of place in space technology.
Getting to the Moon and back is, of course, a long way into the future, and could not be achieved today, even with a joint international effort to share the cost. NASA faked Apollo so as not to face ridicule over JFK's speech, and to convince western civilization that they were better than the USSR in space technology, when in reality they were not. Now nearly 39 years on, they are making themselves a worldwide laughing stock with their ridiculous pictures on the Apollo web sites. One does not have to be a photographic expert to spot that the pictures are 100% fake.
NASA's feeble excuse for not returning to the Moon is because they cannot afford it. The Apollo program allegedly cost $25 billion, at a time when the USA was heavily involved in the Vietnam war, that alone cost them $250 billion, 10 times the cost of Apollo. They have not been involved in anything as big as Vietnam since, so why this feeble excuse, especially as technology has increased four thousand fold since 1969? If NASA's Moon landings were genuine, then getting to the Moon and back should be far easier today than what it was back in 1969. It would cost the same, or less than what Apollo cost, because the technology, ie, tried and tested methods, along with drawings and equipment etc., has apparently already been done. The reason they cannot return is because they never went there in the first place. One cannot return to a place one has never visited.
In 1981, long time skeptic of the Apollo Moon missions, Bill Kaysing appeared on the Oprah Winfrey show, detailing how NASA had conned the American people into believing that they had landed men on the Moon. A national survey at the time by the program makers showed a staggering 60% of Americans believed the Moon landings were faked. We have moved on a further 27 years, and still there are those who believe NASA lies.
Bill Kaysing has offered to appear on a live TV debate with any of the Apollo astronauts, NASA officials, or even the whole lot of them together, verses him on his own, to answer questions, and debate the authenticity of Apollo. Think about this, if these astronauts had indeed been to the Moon, and NASA truly landed men on the Moon as they claim, then they have absolutely nothing to fear, and could demolish Bill Kaysing's theory in less than 5 minutes. Not only that, but they would make him look ridiculous in front of millions of people, however both astronauts and NASA continually decline for any such meeting/debate on television. That just about sums it up in a nutshell, THEY CANNOT ANSWER HIS QUESTIONS. More recently Kaysing has accused NASA of murdering the 3 astronauts in the Apollo 1 fire because they would not go along with any faking of Moon missions. This is a very libelous statement to make if it were untrue. Has NASA taken any legal action to sue Kaysing for labeling them as murderers? No of course not because (A) The statement may be true, (B) If it were not true any legal action would bring into question the authenticity of the alleged Moon landings, and that is something that NASA do not want.
The TV series "From the Earth to the Moon", showed just how easy it was to create a Moon landscape, as well as simulated gravity. The film was identical in every way to the original Apollo films, and yet this series was filmed in a TV studio. The film makers even used the same scene from the faked Apollo 17 pictures, and even used the same Moon buggy, which was supposedly LEFT ON THE MOON.
There are many, many visual signs in the photographs and film, which point to the fact that they are not genuine, likewise there are many irregularities in the alleged Moon mission data, statements made describing each mission, and comments made by the astronauts. Scientific evidence, namely deadly radiation, also proves that they could not have landed on the Moon, and returned safely to Earth.
It is not mankind's greatest achievement as we were told back in 69, but possibly the biggest scam, con, hoax, call it what you like of the last century. NASA refuse to answer any questions regarding Apollo, and likewise the astronauts are reluctant to talk about their alleged Moon missions, as shown in the acknowledgments section of Tim Furniss's fictional book entitled "One Small Step".
You can tell by Armstrong's actions, and the look on his face during pre launch interview, that he knows he is not going anywhere near the Moon, and has been forced to tell lies in front of millions of people. He is nervous, stumbles over his words, and looks down at the table in front of him like some little boy who has been told off by his teacher. This was to hide his guilt from the camera, hardly the behavior of a man about to make history. The guilt is also clearly visible on the faces of all three astronauts whilst in the quarantine chamber aboard Hornet. All three struggle to raise a smile, but are unable to keep it up. There faces quickly return to a sullen look as if to say "We should not be conning the American people in this way".
There is an old saying that "A liar needs a good memory". Nowhere is this more true than in the Apollo program. NASA tell lies to cover up previous lies, and other discrepancies uncovered by people investigating the Moon landings. Altering previous data, removing photographs, and retracting statements made, only re-enforces the evidence that NASA are on the run, and being forced into a corner to which they cannot escape. The actions of those under investigation makes the investigator more aware they are bluffing. The longer that person, or persons, who make the extravagant claims continue, the more lies they have to tell in order to counteract it, until it reaches the point where it becomes ridiculous. That point was passed in July 1999, when NASA officials were questioned about the Moon landings on television. They dodged the all important questions like a drifter dodges the heat.
Many Apollo astronauts have long since died, as to have many of the original NASA officials involved in the scam, consequently current officials, who know that Apollo was a fake, have not quite got it right when talking openly in public. Perhaps the biggest slip of the tongue was made by NASA Chief Dan Goldin when interviewed by UK TV journalist Sheena McDonald in 1994. He said that mankind cannot venture beyond Earth orbit, 250 miles into space, until they can find a way to overcome the dangers of cosmic radiation. He must have forgot that they supposedly sent 27 astronauts 250,000 miles outside Earth orbit 36 years earlier.
During the 60's and 70's, many Third World countries were drifting towards Communism, and the USA regarded any increase in Communism, no matter how small, as a direct threat to their democracy. The USA, under the guidance of the CIA, would pull out all the stops, and do practically anything, to halt this sway towards Communism, no matter how bizarre a plan was put forward. At this time Russia was, and still are, way ahead of the USA in space technology. The CIA assumed that those countries drifting towards Communism were impressed with the Soviet space success rate, when in reality they were simply ridding their countries of corrupt democratic governments.
The CIA also surmised that working class people in the countries moving towards Communism were of low intelligence, and therefore gullible enough to believe anything. Again this is untrue, as Cuban schools have, since 1969, always taught the Apollo Moon landings as fake. If the USA could impress the world with a super human technological feat, it may turn the tide, and convince those countries that a democracy like the USA was the way forward.
It was of course a pathetic move by the CIA, who were ill informed at the time, and did not consider the future implications, because they now cannot find a way to follow on from Apollo. When questioned why no Moon missions have taken place since Apollo, NASA make feeble excuses that they cannot afford it. The real truth of the matter is that they do not have the technology to accomplice such a feat in the year 2007, and certainly would not have had it back in 68, when Apollo 8 supposedly orbited the Moon.
The most baffling aspect of all this, is how astronauts like Armstrong and Aldrin could have been led astray by such a scenario. Both are highly trained fighter/test pilots, and could not therefore be classed as dumbo's, moreover highly intelligent personnel, with a highly skilled job. How could they possibly go along with such a scam, which would undoubtedly be exposed in later years? Many believe they, and the other astronauts, were influenced by mind expanding drugs, which were extremely common at about this time. However I have found no evidence to support this claim. The only real way to find out would be to speak to Armstrong or Aldrin direct, and of course this is impossible. Armstrong, and other Apollo astronauts still alive, have strict instructions not to discuss the authenticity of the Moon landings with any reporter, or investigative journalist.
Pro Apollo Nutter's
The ever increasing evidence, exposed by NASASCAM and other Moon hoax sites, has caused NASA, and Pro Apollo Nutters to get a bit hot under the collar. Why? Because they know that what appears on the NASASCAM site, and its relevant links, is in fact the truth. NASA have been forced into a corner into which there is no escape. Pro Apollo Nutters, (PAN'S), are scared and angry that their lifelong fantasy is under such intense investigation, and being pulled apart piece by piece. When those pieces of the NASASCAM are closely reassembled, it becomes plainly obvious to anyone what NASA did back in the 60's, and why they did it.
Here are a few examples. The link I made to picture 2 on home page, was broken in Jan 2003. The picture was removed from the official NASA site to save embarrassment, but which disrupted my link. However I have made a fresh link to another source of the picture, which includes Tuttle's name at the bottom. Conclusive proof that it was Tuttle who faked the Internet pictures for NASA sometime in the mid 90's.
One stupid PAN claimed it was impossible Tuttle could have faked the pictures, as he was only 5 years old at the time of Apollo 11. This just goes to show what numbskull's they really are. Evidently he cannot read, because on the APOLLOFAKE site it clearly states when the MAJORITY OF NASA MOON PICTURES WERE FAKED. Conclusive proof that PAN's do not research the subject in detail.
Another PAN was angry and concerned about Arthur Clarke's "Hole in History" remark, and suggested Clarke sue the web author, ie, me, for defamation. Further proof that PAN's do not read, or research the subject. The remark made by Clarke appears in the book "Dark Moon", evidently this particular PAN has not read the book. Either Clarke made the remark, or he did not. If he did not make that remark then he should sue the author/publisher of "Dark Moon" and not me. Clarke was of course heavily involved in the faking of the Apollo Moon missions, but do you think he will honestly admit it? No of course not, but try telling that to a PAN. It's pretty pointless really as they prefer to live with the fantasy that men really did journey to the Moon.
Another PAN queried how I knew Armstrong had no mementoes whatsoever from his alleged Moon mission. That statement appears in the book "One Small Step", a fictional/fantasy book written purely for PAN's, but none appear to know about it, let alone to have read it.
Many PAN's claim that info on the APOLLODATA web page is incorrect. Once again it CLEARLY STATES AT TOP OF WEB PAGE WHERE THE INFORMATION WAS OBTAINED. If the information is incorrect, then the two books mentioned are also incorrect. It is clear evidence that PAN's do not research the subject, or read any books on the alleged Moon missions. In practice they have no case whatsoever.
Finally one PAN, who found my site "scary", contacted Tuttle to ask why his web page had a link to my APOLLOFAKE web page, and if he did not fake the pictures for NASA , why he did not take legal action to get his name and link removed. Tuttle can't take legal action because he knows that what appears on the APOLLOFAKE web page is in fact the truth, and their is ample evidence to support it.
The PAN also put questions to Tuttle. Tuttle refused to answer his questions, and told the PAN not to contact him anymore, as he, (Tuttle), was not bothered by the web page. Think about this. If someone wrote an article accusing you of doing something you had not done, then you would take immediate steps to get it removed. IF on the other hand the statements were correct, then you would keep mum, say nothing about it, and hope it just fades away. If Tuttle refused to answer his questions, and told the PAN not to contact him anymore, does that not sound familiar? We've seen it with so many of those involved in the Apollo missions. In other words they know that what appears on the web site is in fact the truth, but do not wish to discuss the issue for obvious reasons. However they cannot do much about statements which are wholly truthful. Those involved in the fake Moon missions must get pretty well fed up with PAN's who e-mail them with questions to counteract any suggestion the Moon missions were faked. They WILL NOT answer any questions whether you are pro or anti hoax. This, of course, only reinforces their guilt inasmuch as they have plenty to hide.
You only have to look at the PAN forum on the badastronomy site to see what complete lunatics these people are. They claim to have debunked any evidence that the Moon missions were faked, when in reality their debunking claims are even more ridiculous and absurd than the fake pictures. They spend all their time writing gibberish nonsense to each other. This gibberish nonsense is typical of the sought of nonsense that emanates from an inpatient within a psychiatric unit. The e-mails do make any sense at all to a normal human being. What PANS really need is medication to correct an imbalance within their minds, an imbalance which results in disorientated thoughts and delusions. Such medication is available which return their thoughts/thinking more closely in tune with reality, and the majority media. They can then sit back, read, and study in great depth the full story behind Apollo. Once they get the clear picture they will feel such gullible fools for believing that NASA sent men on Moon missions nearly 39 years ago. The author was a school teenager when sputnik was launched. He has studied space travel for over 40 years, and is therefore in a better position than your average PAN to state whether the moon missions were real or fake. End of story.
