Re: The MOON HOAX

I don't know. That green screen theory makes sense but I always figured they were using front screen projection and just didn't have the light levels right for Apollo 11. Like you said it was produced by mere video technicians who only visited Kubrick's "NASA east" studio in London for a short while...

Re: Stars/no stars - and other space oddities

The more I think about "Stargazer" the weirder it seems. * Why is there so little information about the first video of outer space? Yes it looks terrible but in the pre-internet era who would know? * Why did the Air Force (Lookout Mountain) use pin-pricks in black construction paper for the star eff...

Re: Stars/no stars - and other space oddities

In 1962, the US Air Force sent up two astronauts in a weather balloon called StarGazer to film the sky from above the Earth's atmosphere (I guess). https://image.ibb.co/bRB20d/stars.png Source: http://www.britishpathe.com/video/the-stargazer-balloon-takes-off/query/balloon I especially like how ther...

Re: After the Moon Hoax: SKYLAB

I'm aware of many non-cgi techniques for low or zero gravity simulation. This one is my favorite: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=auQwaeee89o (NASA moon gravity simulation done with a sideways camera and angled bungee chords). Also i like hunchback's suggestion that they had underwater filming with ...

Re: After the Moon Hoax: SKYLAB

Regarding the time limit of weightless footage, it's worth noting that after the Space Shuttle came into service (1981) we started seeing longer weightless footage. Sometimes as long as 100 seconds. This is in the pre-CGI era still. They may have used the Space Shuttle to get longer shots. The Shutt...

Re: Fakery in Orbit: THE I$$

I too am unsure of "deep thoughts". His flat earth episodes are the worst, and there are many of them, but I believe the man to be earnest. A gatekeeper wouldn't be bothered to record hundreds of hours of material, and so much of what he says is original, well researched and thought provoking that I...

Re: NASA'S FLAT EARTH DBA STRATEGY

Peter, I wanted to address something you said, which is that the cause of the Earth's and moon's synchronous rotation is coincidental. If true, I agree that would be extremely hard to believe. However there's a logical explanation. The real mystery is how so large a body as our moon exists in the fi...

Re: 90's Operations: Waco, TX - Oklahoma City Bombing

Interesting that Timothy McVeigh used the alias "Tuttle". According to http://apollofake.atspace.co.uk (which mostly dates from the 90s) a man named Michael J Tuttle worked on creating the Apollo photos prior to the massive internet dump in 1995. May be a coincidence, or perhaps another in-joke.

Re: Stars/no stars - and other space oddities

I have no idea if I'm right, of course, but my thinking was: If you consider the size of a star, however many millions of miles its diameter might be, but then consider how far away it is, several light years even for Alpha Centauri, then the apparent size of that star would be very small if you wer...

Re: Stars/no stars - and other space oddities

I have a theory that individual stars may not be visible in space, due to the pinpoint of light emitted by a star millions of light years away simply being too small to be picked up by the rods and cones in our eyes. Here on Earth we have the diffusing effect of our atmosphere to make those microsco...

Re: The Earth seen from space

May I add another caveat: We can't point this advanced satellite camera at any of the 6 Apollo landing sites ahem * Lunar reflection would blind the camera * We know all there is to know about the moon, no need to waste taxpayer money * We don't know where the sites are to the required degree of acc...

I came across a complete copy of Bill Kaysing's interview to Bart Sibrel in 1996/97: IJxHnpa90w4 It's about an hour long. Parts of this interview have made their way into various videos of various quality over the years, along with some other interviews Kaysing has given, but this un-cut version is ...

Re: The MOON HOAX

*If* you are willing to accept that a large object exerting a gravitational force exists (such as the Earth), then orbital velocity follows logically. The force of gravity towards the center of mass of the large object is one leg of a right triangle; the force propelling the "spacecraft" at a const...

Re: The MOON HOAX

Why do you believe that the earth isn't perfectly round, or round at all to begin with? It makes sense to me that giant balls of matter are held together by gravity, whose strongest pull would be at the center of the mass, thus creating a spheroid over time. It would be an imperfect sphere because ...
