Last week, in advance of today’s 40 year anniversary of the Apollo 11 landing on the moon, ABC ran a interesting piece on the videos from the mission. Evidently, the original tapes were “lost” (possibly taped over) from the landing — can you believe that? Yes, that’s what they said (ABC just said the tapes were lost).
At the time of the landings NASA, for some odd (some say suspicious) reasons, refused the networks to have a direct feed, forcing them to video the screen inside Mission Control. Video experts recently had to digitally improve the poor TV images we all saw back then (if you’re old enough).
Now, I don’t know one way or another if the whole thing was faked, but below is one creepy video. It purports that a reel of analog film (like negatives, remember them?), was accidentally released by NASA and which apparently shows the astronauts doing some really curious things while in low earth orbit. Watch it and you tell me.
Also, please take a quick blog poll to let me know what you think. A poll was recently taken in Britain, which says 25% of Brits think it was faked.
Video on a reel of film accidentally (?) released to the public, which purports to show Apollo 11 crew faking earth shots from a distance. Very spooky.
The Van Allen belts deflect (and absorb) extremely dangerous radiation from the sun around the earth, over and into the polar regions. That’s why you have the Northern Lights. And you can thank your lucky stars that it’s around or else you would be one dead mutha by now. You actually wouldn’t even have been born if it didn’t exist. Hell, NOTHING would be born if it wasn’t around!
So get down on your skinny, knobby knees and thank God for Van Allen and his belts!
Earth orbiting missions are still protected to an extent by the Van Allen belts, but any Moon voyage would not be. Since the Lunar orbiter and command module were pretty much little more than tin foil and sheet metal, nothing would stop the dangerous radiation from passing through the astronaut’s bodies. The question is: How much?
Even today, astronauts report a curious phenomenon. With their eyes closed tightly, they see bright flashes of light once and awhile. This is the radiation not stopped by our atmosphere and the Van Allen belts.
Now we know that the astronauts didn’t come back and suffer horrible deaths six months later. Their eyeballs were not covered in sickening white cataracts, their hair didn’t fall out in wispy clumps and their teeth didn’t pop out, leaving bloody holes in their slack jaws.
So they either: Didn’t go to the moon or the radiation was so minuscule not to have effected them on the cellular level.
When I first saw official NASA films long ago (I don’t recall what mission or year), I distinctly remember thinking at the time that the cloud patterns on the earth at a distance looked funny. Too flat, too big. Something was not right, but I wasn’t sure exactly why at the time (watch above video). I have a pretty good set of eyes and have excellent depth perception, if I may be so bold as to say.
There’s also some other strange things about the Apollo mission. The flag appears to wave in some breeze, no surface distubance under the LEM descent engine, other photo anomalies, shadows, etc. etc. And we sure haven’t been back, either. On the other hand, if it was all faked, they’ve done a good job keeping it secret, that’s for sure!
The movie “Capricorn One,” used this whole idea for a plot back in the 70’s (albeit a Mars mission). The wife-slashing, Jew-stabbing Negro, OJ Simpson was in it and gets whacked trying to escape the clutches of evil NASA scientists to tell the world (undoubtedly former Nazis with “Von” in their names).
Basically, I don’t really know. But I am curious about what you think, so please take my little poll here.

Check out the video which says the Chinese Spacewalk was faked. Sure looks like something fishy to me!
