After the Moon Hoax: SKYLAB

If NASA faked the moon landings, does the agency have any credibility at all? Was the Space Shuttle program also a hoax? Is the International Space Station another one? Do not dismiss these hypotheses offhand. Check out our wider NASA research and make up your own mind about it all.

SKYLAB : SPACE STATION I - 1970's NASA Space Station Educational Documentary

Check out the special effects at 16:36 or so. The astronauts can run in circles like in the scene from the film 2001: A Space Odyssey. How is this possible? It is not. There is no force that pushes the astronaut back towards the apparent floor after his foot and pushed away from that surface. The other odd thing is how after a time, they are then unable to run on the surface and instead float as expected. This would then be some kind of composite with wire work and perhaps put together with the multiplane camera system. Some kind of camera rig and/or wire set up would be used to shoot the footage of the actors.

That sequence appears to be both:

1. played at a significantly slower speed than it was filmed at to give the illusion of an extended period of apparent weightlessness during what is actually a short (and well-rehearsed) sequence of stunts. Watching it at 1.5x or even 2x speed looks more natural.

and

2. Filmed aboard one of NASA's high altitude (non-civilian) "vomit comets". Between the planes being cleared to travel to a much higher altitude than the 33,000 foot ceiling of the civilian-accessible Vomit Comets, as well as the crew being trained to handle g-forces as high as 9.0 (civilian version doesn’t induce more than 1.8 g’s on it’s occupants), they probably attain at least 40 consecutive seconds of weightlessness (in contrast to the civilian’s 25 seconds).

This is why any footage of unambiguously non-cgi weightless experiments are always, ALWAYS, ALWAYS offered in only short snippets.
