Who thinks they were real, who thinks they were faked, and also...
I'll have to wait until I get to my aunt's to hit that link, she has DSL. Can you summarize it?
Off topic, I feel nauseous.
I don't want to spoil it... but they are filming the landing and some lighting falls on Neil.
And what makes you think that that fake filming was'nt faked itself by non-believers in a desperate attempt to prove themselves right?
what seems more real in the 60 they sofistocatidly faked a project just to make them selves "seem" to beat the russans, or that later with tech avalable to ever 13 year old some one faked 20 seconeds of video, and selected a few photos that at first glance dont look quite right, and then twist the truth to have them fit your needs.
Fake? Where does this type of paranoia come from. I have to think up a good conspiracy theory so I can sell books and retire.
You can tell that was made by someone else. The voice isn't even Neil's. Besides, tell an astronaut that went on these things that it was fake, and get punched in the face...not kidding either, that happened...
Without a big discussion on whether its real or fake , I do have question .
Why , with todays better technology , is there an international space station in space , and no one has touched the moon since the last time ?
Shouldn't there be moon colonies by now , and people working and studying on the moon ?
We have the technology to go , computers are smaller , we can pack more stuff into the same sized lander now , right
The governmemts been too busy working on the weather generator so that the republicans and bush can hit the dems with hurricanes.
hey that is my book!!!!!!
ok but i got the space shuttle causes earthquake one!!!!!!!
Take a poll of the American public on how many think NASA is a complete waste of funding. You'll have your answer.
NASA is considered a low budget priority. Coming from the space exploration era it's incredibly disappointing to see what little progress has been made.
Until they build a Galactic Wal-mart or we are threatened by Marslims don't expect too see much interest.
They probably could as long as they did'nt use a microsoft opperating system.
I opted "I know", but I really don't, I've never really looked into the conspiracy theory beyond the occasional discovery channel special on it. It raises some interesting points, but I don't know if enough to be really compelling.
On the other hand, my education on the event is so public-school-textbook that it very well could have been faked and I would feel the same about it's truth. I think the fact that it's being called a conspiracy and a fake so far after the event, with so little period-criticism (unless I'm wrong and there is scrutiny from then), deflates a lot of the conspiracy theory. Although, that's not necessarily a fair standard to use against it's credibility...There may be legit reasons it took a long time to come out. I'm not completely buying it.
The whole Apollo 13 fiasco (which would have been extremely difficult to fake), even if disastrous, proved we could get something up there and pretty damn close to the moon.
Pauly does make a good point, though. Why an international space station, yet no permanent structure on the moon? For all the work that went into creating a free-space orbiting habitat, it may have been easier to create something on the moon.
The only two reasons I can think of would be that they can't control the moon's position or orbit, while they can control a free-floating station's; and it may be easier to dock the shuttle to a free-floating station than to land it and seal it to the lunar base. I don't know much about what's involved, so those are just my two highly uneducated guesses at obstacles, there may be more, or they may be smaller obstacles than others in having a space station...
aww crap where did i leave my tin foil helmet
-IN 1943, ROOSEVELT AND CHURCHILL ESTABLISHED CONCENTRATION CAMPS IN THE RURAL USA AND BRITAIN, USING "VOLUNTEERS" THEY TRICKED INTO SHOWING UP. THEY STARVED THEM AND DOCUMENTED EVERYTHING KNOWING THAT THEY NEEDED SOME HEAVY DUTY EVIDENCE TO DESTROY THE REPUTATION OF THE 3RD REICH.
-JACK RUBY WAS SCREWING JACKIE KENNEDY. JFK FOUND OUT AND ORDERED A HIT ON HIS WIFE. THE BULLET ACCIDENTALLY HIT HIM. A BROKEN HEART CAUSED JACK RUBY TO KILL THE ALLEDGED ASSASSIN.
-THE RUSSIAN INVASION OF AFGHANISTAN NEVER HAPPENED. IT WAS MADE UP BY THE CIA AND ALL THE FOOTAGE OF THE WAR WAS FAKED. RUSSIAN SOLDIERS WERE KIDNAPPED AND BRAINWASHED INTO BELIEVING THEY HAD ACTUALLY BEEN IN COMBAT.
Just in case some of you needed more to chew on.........
I made those up in 3 minutes. If I spent some time and actually threw a little fact and supposition into the mix to support my claims, it would be next to impossible to 100% disprove any of them. In fact, the wilder the claim, the EASIER it is to "prove" it's legitimacy.
They're called conspiracy THEORIES for a reason.
I'd be careful with what you say Paul, the black Denali's are rolling up to your house as we speak now...
i would vote for Fake as well.
we havent been "back" since, but just think with all the CGI now, how good it would look today.
all those millions being wasted on Nasa could be funneled to something more productive.
and as far as Roosevelt having Concentration Camps, thats actually sorta true, the US had Eugenics laws way before the Nazis started it.
In the realm of science, a theory is accepted fact. In normal society, it is a guess...
