How much functioning manned Moon landing technology do we have on hand?

Why is the measure of whether something was done its ongoing operation?

Please justify your expectations.

No one wants to pay for it and while technology in general has improved, rocket tech is largely the same. It is still extremely expensive to get to orbit. Computer advances only go so far. How many megabytes does it take to get to orbit?

Moon landing deniers have fantasy, skip critical thinking. They can't do orbital mechanics.

Since you deny it happened, you will not comprehend how it was done, you don't to EOM and orbital mechanics.
First you have to have lots of math, tons. You have to love math and go all the way. Have you taken graduate level math? While you are taking math, you need to take physics, lots of physics. Next you have to do the equations of motions, and work on orbital mechanics. The EOM will fill a large class room filled with caulk boards (remember the USA did this in the 60, before that silly keyboard, or tablet you are working on and deny the moon landing were invented). Did you take physics, and math, can you formulate the EOM, or do differential equations?
I have no idea why you believe your computer or tablet is real, you can't explain how the chips are made, are you sure they are real?

Do you know how to build big rocket engines?

Moon landing deniers don't do science.
Astronomers tracked Apollo missions, why can't you (not born yet). How do you fall for the failed hoax?
http://www.astr.ua.edu/keel/space/apollo.html
Do you understand astronomy?

LOL, explain in detail how the Internet works, and how the chips in your computer are made. They can't be real, can they? Who makes the chips for you? Can you make computer chips? Anything technical?

If you don't understand orbital mechanics, then you will be unarmed to prove the moon landings did not take place.
I did see men walk on the moon, guess deniers don't understand information theory, another college thing. They had to invent ways to do communication to ensure it worked, the comm part. Do you have any science or engineering background?

I saw them walk on the moon live. Do you understand electromagnetic waves, and communications? If not you will not comprehend or be able to prove your claim, your denial of reality. Good luck.


Can you do the equations, the orbital mechanics to go to the Moon? Are you prepared to do the hard stuff? Technology? You don't know how we got to the moon in the 60s, and you think you can harness technology today to anything; the best you come up with is denying reality.

Already best answer is $$$. As you gain maturity you will figure out you can only do so much - but gee whiz, run for president and inspire us to go back, or do better.

A young president did that in the 60s.

Denial of the moon landings is right up there with the stupidest of the stupid as far as conspiracy theories.

Three U.S. Presidents have proposed a return to the Moon since Apollo ended. Out of those, only one received funding but was then later defunded.

Manned space flight is not simply a matter of "technology." And yes, while some technical fields such as computers have advanced by leaps and bounds in the past few decades, others like spacefaring equipment have remained largely unchanged since the 1970s. Aside from a few new companies such as SpaceX, we have needed only incremental improvements.

But to conduct a series of manned space missions there needs to be an incentive to spend all that money toward that end. Beating the Soviets was incentive enough during the Cold War, but now space exploration is not a national priority. This is the reality of public science programs. If the public vision changes, so does the funding.

It's been kind of disappointing for people like me who remember the Apollo program. As a grade-school kid, I was CERTAIN that by my early 50's there would be colonies on the moon and Mars. If somebody would have said then that by 2013 not only would we not have any colonies on the Moon, but that we wouldn't have even gone back once to the moon since 1972, I'd have thought they were crazy.

Things do change indeed.

The lackluster outlook after Apollo is why von Braun and so many prominent figures left NASA. Von Braun envisioned an ambitious space exploration infrastructure, but without strong political patrons and a public mandate, he saw it tragically eviscerated in Congress. Several historians pointed to Apollo as the "perfect storm" of political will, public interest, and technological capability.

There was incentive for exploration... before international treaty removed it.

Ihave begun to think they should just let the private sector rip, albeit with some regulation so it is not a total free for all.

In order for the private sector to do anything in space, there has to be some way of earning enough revenue to turn a profit to offset the enormous costs. I don't really see space tourism getting it done. I know there are a couple of companies that want to do mining on near-earth asteroids, but I'm not sure if that will actually prove profitable.

There are some manufacturing processes that would benefit from micro-gravity and high vacuum, but again, I don't know if these will prove profitable.

---------------------------------------------
Q: Why do prominent astronomers like Sir Bernard Lovell and Patrick Moore support the Moon landings if they were faked?

A: Scientists and astronomers around the globe know full well that the Moon missions were faked, but rely on NASA to gain access to the vital data beamed back to Earth from the Hubble space telescope. They cannot slag off NASA otherwise NASA would deprive them of this essential information, which they so much require.
---------------------------------------------
Q: What about the vast number of people involved in Apollo, wouldn’t someone have spoken out.

A: Pan’s claim there were half a million people involved in the Apollo program, but that includes all the humble engineers working on machine parts in many companies around the globe. So if someone is making a part in some engineering factory in Seattle, and his boss tells him it’s for the Apollo spacecraft, is that engineer proof the landings took place? No of course it is not proof, and even if that engineer knew they never made it to the Moon, he would still brag to his friends that he made a part that went to the Moon just to make him feel proud in some way or other. Parts for the Apollo program were made at many different factories around the globe. For example the laser reflector supposedly left on the Moon was manufactured in France. NASA collected the unit from the French company, and that was the last they saw of it. It’s probably stashed away in some archive at Langley, but one things for certain it’s not on the Moon. Are those French engineers proof they landed on the Moon? No of course not, as very few, (probably less than 200 people), were actually involved in bringing the whole lot together, so as to minimize what was actually taking place. No need for any of them to speak out because (A) They are 100% patriotic to the USA, and would say nothing that would go against America, even if it were true. (B) They do not need millions of dollars to safeguard their future, as they have already received substantial amounts from NASA just to “keep mum”. Read comments from people who worked on the Apollo program in the APOLLO FEEDBACK section.
----------------------------------------------------------------

Also, the media and science journals won't report what they say if they say Apollo never happened..


Do a YouTube search on "Chomsky media" to see some analyses of the media.
I'd been pro Apollo regular story Fat Freddy until about a year ago. Then this dude drives down to Denver from Fort Collins to show our little astronomy club his dad's notebooks. The guy from Fort Collins father was an aerospace engineer. The dad had been tasked to determine whether Swigert was a viable political candidate. During Swigert's run for congress this fellow would attend the various political functions , ask Swigert questions and that kind of thing. As it turns out this guy's dad became suspicious of Swigert. the man was an environmental systems expert and apparently when he'd ask Swigert about how warm the spaceship should have been and how much energy it takes to heat a spaceship Swigert did not know jack squat. There's more to it that that, but that was a significant part of it. This guy concluded Swigert was a fraud and recommended to his company not to support the astronaut's run for congress. Swigert of course did win , but never worked really in congress because he got sick. The aerospace engineer investigating all of this never went public, but with his recent death, his son has been showing the notebooks around, fairly selectively, at our astronomy club meeting and that kind of thing. they are obviously authentic and the son is planning to publish this stuff I believe but is looking for guidance. The incriminating claims by Swigert from the interactions this guy had with the deceased astronaut are pretty compelling. At least I think so. Keep your eye out for this sort of thing now FatFreddy. Nationally you don't see or hear much but in the smaller anecdotal cosmos of Denver it's sort of heated up.

There of course is great precedent for American and Western sponsored underground activities(conspiracies) featuring numerous participants that are never exposed or well exposed and simply never acknowledged for what they are;

1) Allende assassination
2) Recent predatory lending
3) The installation of the pro-American Shah
4) The activities of NATOS SECRET ARMIES 1945-1990 and perhaps beyond
5) The Government/AT and T supercomputer eavesdropping on us all in strong violation of the then law
6) Manned Orbiting lab, to function not as advertised
7) Iran Contra

And on and on, zillions of them. Apollo will probably wind up being like the AT and T supercomputer thing. At first everyone flips out including politicians and then it is all viewed as semi-necessary and even the president helps to smooth the BS over.

That's the best story you can make up?

So lacking any testable evidence for an Apollo conspiracy theory, you'll now allude in handwaving fashion to several other conspiracies and conspiracy theories.

Or more likely, your "secret notebooks at astronomy club" fib will die just as quick and natural a death as all the other faux insider claims that have been thrown around for the past 40 years.

How about producing some of this "environmental systems expertise" you say revealed Swigert to be a fraud? You know, evidence that isn't just a tall tale, but instead can be tested for correctness.

Your unverified anecdote about an unnamed man who asked Jack Swigert a question about one of many thousands of technical details regarding the Apollo Command module than he didn't know the answer to has convinced me that the whole thing was a fake.

To summarise, anonymous dude from denver drives a considerable distance to visit an insignificant club to show what anonymous dudes dad wrote in notebooks, anonymously. Anonymous dad's job was to ascertain if Swigert was suitable for congressional candidacy (and he obviously concluded 'Yes' since Swigert was elected) and Anonymous Dad was a paid shill, asking predetermined questions at Swigerts public engagements. Anonymous Dad became suspicious when Swigert could not answer technical questions, even though Swigert did not have technical references to hand (few could do so).

This sounds plausible to you?

More will be revealed. But I like the environmental arguments the Fort Collins guy trots out. The how can you keep a secret conspiracy angle is one that the in favor of Apollo side uses. I am just pointing out it is nonsensical. Of course western interests screw people in secret on a regular basis. Just ask Allende's wife, or the family's of the children blown up at the Bologna train station.

I really could not care less in my taking a look at Apollo about this sort of thing, if only your side said there never really were conspiracies perpetrated by our secret governmental arms.

The point's been made many times before, but it seems putting together a believable hoax would have been as difficult and expensive, if not more so, than actually going to the moon. So why bother?

Wasn't trying to convince you of anything. Was just a communication mostly directed to Fat Freddy letting him know how I bounced to this side and little note to your side reminding you our secret government engages on hidden activities ad lib. Conspiracies are common place and the secrets are very well kept.

5) The Government/AT and T supercomputer eavesdropping on us all in strong violation of the then law
6) Manned Orbiting lab, to function not as advertised
7) Iran Contra

And on and on, zillions of them. Apollo will probably wind up being like the AT and T supercomputer thing. At first everyone flips out including politicians and then it is all viewed as semi-necessary and even the president helps to smooth the BS over.
So, several years after the mission, Swigert couldn't remember some technical details that he probably didn't need to know during the mission, therefore the whole Appollo program was fake?

Okay.

ETA: And the government (or parts of it) have done some evil things in the past, so we should believe every conspiracy theory put forward, no matter how stupid it is?

Actually history says the opposite about conspiracies and secrets in general, just ask PFC Bradley Manning.

I really could not care less in my taking a look at Apollo about this sort of thing, if only your side said there never really were conspiracies perpetrated by our secret governmental arms.
So, basically, your argument that the Apollo program was a hoax is to point to other alleged conspiracies. Is there anything then that isn't a conspiracy?

And what's worse conspiracies that by and large have been common knowledge for years or decades, rather negating the concept of keeping such things secret.

That's patently fallacious reasoning. That would be like a prosecuting attorney making his case by saying, "Murder in the defendant's neighborhood is common, therefor he is guilty of the murder he has been charged with".

I suppose if it wasn't actually going to the moon, they didn't nave to put a full load of fuel on it.

The point's been made many times before, but it seems putting together a believable hoax would have been as difficult and expensive, if not more so, than actually going to the moon. So why bother?
Not to mention that in order to simulate the effect of dust moving in a vacuum, they'd have to build a giant sound stage that could be evacuated to virtually zero atmospheric pressure. Then, to simulate the effect of 1/6 gravity, they'd have to be able to drop the whole sound stage from from a considerable height for minutes at a time.

No, not in the sense that you laid out a cogent argument arriving at the stated belief. More like you simply assumed it was a fact Apollo was faked and are just speculating about the aftermath. That's like me saying, "When your boss finds out you're a drunkard, he'll probably fire you." Complex-question arguments are arguments nonetheless. Give us a reason to believe your anecdote.

Quote:

If it had been directed at Fat Freddy you could have sent him a private message. But since you posted it in public then it's fair game for comment from anyone. Your claims are being challenged. Are you willing to defend them?

Quote:

Asked and answered. You neglected to provide any testable proof for your claim, so you ran off on a tangent instead.

Quote:

Then how do you know the conspiracies are commonplace? And the secrets don't appear to be so very well kept if all you have to do to discover that Apollo was faked is attend a Denver area amateur astronomy club.

Then why haven't you reproduced them already instead of just boasting about how convincing they are to you? Why doesn't he come here and present them himself? Why does he need a stooge?

"I have a friend who's an expert on space technology and he says Apollo was faked." How many times have we heard this same handwaving indirection? Bring him here and let him debate. Why should we debate you? You don't know anything about it.

Quote:

People screw other people over in secret on a regular basis the world over, no matter one's station. That isn't proof that Apollo was one of those instances. No matter how much of humanity's proverbial feces you throw into the air, that's not proof of some particular affirmative claim. Handwaving doesn't impress me.

Quote:

Yet you arrived at JREF and practically made a beeline for the Apollo hoax thread while still in single-digit post counts.

Quote:

Yes, if only we said that then your straw-man handwaving would make sense. But sadly for you we don't say that, so it doesn't. No one is claiming that people don't keep secrets and that people don't do things clandestinely. You're saying Apollo was one of those clandestine hoaxes. Therefore you owe us evidence for Apollo as a hoax, not handwaving references to other sins elsewhere, real or imaginary.

During Swigert's run for congress this fellow would attend the various political functions , ask Swigert questions and that kind of thing. As it turns out this guy's dad became suspicious of Swigert. the man was an environmental systems expert and apparently when he'd ask Swigert about how warm the spaceship should have been and how much energy it takes to heat a spaceship Swigert did not know jack squat. There's more to it that that, but that was a significant part of it. This guy concluded Swigert was a fraud and recommended to his company not to support the astronaut's run for congress. Swigert of course did win , but never worked really in congress because he got sick. The aerospace engineer investigating all of this never went public, but with his recent death, his son has been showing the notebooks around, fairly selectively, at our astronomy club meeting and that kind of thing. they are obviously authentic and the son is planning to publish this stuff I believe but is looking for guidance. The incriminating claims by Swigert from the interactions this guy had with the deceased astronaut are pretty compelling. At least I think so. Keep your eye out for this sort of thing now FatFreddy. Nationally you don't see or hear much but in the smaller anecdotal cosmos of Denver it's sort of heated up.

There of course is great precedent for American and Western sponsored underground activities(conspiracies) featuring numerous participants that are never exposed or well exposed and simply never acknowledged for what they are;

1) Allende assassination
2) Recent predatory lending
3) The installation of the pro-American Shah
4) The activities of NATOS SECRET ARMIES 1945-1990 and perhaps beyond
5) The Government/AT and T supercomputer eavesdropping on us all in strong violation of the then law
6) Manned Orbiting lab, to function not as advertised
7) Iran Contra

And on and on, zillions of them. Apollo will probably wind up being like the AT and T supercomputer thing. At first everyone flips out including politicians and then it is all viewed as semi-necessary and even the president helps to smooth the BS over.
OK, so, let's have the name of the guy with the notebooks, the name of the astronomy club and the date of the meeting. Then we should really check that you were there, seeing as this must have happened over 30 years ago.

Without any of this information, your story is going to smell really bad. Of stale feet.

This 'new' guy reminds me of the funniest moon landing was faked reason I've ever heard:

My mom and a co-worker were talking about something when the subject of the moon landing came up.
Guy: "You know they faked the moon landings, right?"
Mom: "What makes you think that?"
Guy: "Those rockets were way to small to carry enough coal to get to the moon and back!"
Mom: ""

The actual argument is quite technical. One I certainly could not produce here. Here's a nice little exercise. Ask yourself why Armstrong and Aldrin were so cold the night they were supposed to be parked on the moon and why the Apollo 15 astronauts were burning up. Then ask yourself and go and find what the temperature was said to be in the two LMs on those 2 occasions.

One of the most compelling points in favor of a hoax is that such an effort need be made on the for Apollo side. Why does Phil Plait go on the air and utterly embarrass himself debating a comedian? Per the poster above, why did they add an entire section to the 1994 Moon Shot publication in 2011 to cover the attack by the advocates of hoax? Why do defenders of Apollo spend so much time and energy on this ? If it's fake, why waste your time? There is no danger from us. The thing is a big joke. Very big joke. And quite sad I might add. Think of Armstrong's ultimate legacy, nothing less than abominably pathetic.

Try.

Begin irrelevant handwaving in 5... 4... 3... 2... 1...

Quote:

Has nothing to do with your claims.

Quote:
Ask yourself...
Begging the question. You said there was a rigorous technical argument produced by an engineer that you found compelling and which you said supported your belief that Apollo was faked. Provide it -- put up or shut up.

Quote:
Then ask yourself and go and find what the temperature was said to be in the two LMs on those 2 occasions.
What is the basis for your apparent belief that the LM cabin should be at the same temperature all the time?

Quote:

That effort is in response to, and commensurate with, the degree of attack on Apollo. We react. So if you are surprised at the degree of the reaction, ask yourself why Apollo hoax claimants are so fervent. Fat Freddy, for example, went on a five-year binge of posting to just about every forum in sight. The original author of this thread, Patrick1000, has reappeared countless times as a sock puppet until the administrators ban him. You'll find that as soon as the hoax claimants leave, this thread goes dormant until another arises.

Try again, that argument doesn't wash.

Quote:

Why are you so immediately interested in the arguments of a banned sock-puppet?

Quote:
Why do defenders of Apollo spend so much time and energy on this?
Why are you trying to shame your critics away from responding? You obviously considered this important enough to find a suitable forum and start posting about it. Can we also not show the same interest?

Quote:
There is no danger from us. The thing is a big joke. Very big joke. And quite sad I might add. Think of Armstrong's ultimate legacy, nothing less than abominably pathetic.
What evidentiary value does your editorial comment have? You're being asked to prove your case, not gloat over it.

Pathetic point. Were no refutation provided of the constant idiotic claims, the claimants would cheer in "victory" like Gollam holding his ring aloft!

Quote:

Two reasons, the comedian has a mouth larger than the Channel Tunnel and used it endlessly, then raised a completely bogus claim about von Braun the rocket engineer and his "rock gathering" exercise to the Antarctic. Rocks I might add, that would no more fool a geologist than a piece of Polar bear poop(something you might know about).

Quote:

Just armwaving bluster as per usual.

Quote:

Yes. Anybody who still thinks Apollo was hoaxed should be regarded as such.

Quote:

Yep!

What is this supposed to prove?

Fallacious reasoning. One could easily say the same thing about the effort mage by the conspiracy theorists.

Quote:

Some people actually try to counter the spread of ignorance.

Quote:

Again, this is fallacious reasoning. One could easily ask the same of the conspiracy theorists.

Ignorance and fallacy can be very dangerous.

Quote:

What is abominably pathetic is the effort of people who use conspiracy theories like the "moon hoax" in an attempt to inflate their own egos. They self-aggrandize by convincing themselves that there's some great secret that only they are smart enough to work out.

Be sure when you tell us all why you also tell us the temperature inside the LM on both occasions.

So please go ahead, tell us all why and how hot it was in there on the moon, both times, Apollo 11 and Apollo 15.

Don't bluff me. What kind of fool do you take me for? Why don't you tell us all how hot or cold it was inside the LM on the occasion of the Apollo 11 stay on the moon and likewise please tell us the temperature inside the LM during the Apollo 15 stay.
