I'm watching this documentary called 'Did man really land on the moon' or something like that. Some guy that worked for the company that made the apollo rockets, as an engineer, claims that the moon landings were a hoax.
He puts forward a few arguements: in the NASA footage the american flag, when the astronaut is carrying it on the moon's surface....is waving, but there is no atmosphere on the moon, thus no wind. Even after the flag is firmly staked into the ground, the flag is waving back and forth.
His second arguement: in the NASA footage of man on the moon...there is no stars in the background...but surely on the moon, which has no atmosphere it would be relatively easy to see the stars in the sky.
His third arguement: there is no landing crater under the lunar module after it has landed, even though the module is applying a downward force/thrust of several thousand pounds
His fourth arguement: It is evident that there is more than one light source on the 'moon.' In still photos, shadows of the astronauts and rocks and other object on the 'moon' are running in different directions. But, if the sun is the only light source that they had, then all shadows should be running parallel to each other, which is not the case in the photographs.
His fifth arguement: Video footage of an astronaut climing out of the left side lunar module, and the sun is on the right side of the lunar module. Therefore there is a shadow cast by the lunar module...although why is the astronaut fully visible even though he is standing in a shadow? This surely indicates more than one light source.
His sixth arguement: Crosshairs were etched/printed onto the camera lenses or some part of the cameras, so that the crosshairs would show up on the photos. But, on some photos, some objects in the photos are overlapping the cross hairs, how is this possible?
His seventh arguement: An astonaut named Grissom, or something like that, was an outspoken kind of man. He was a bit of a skeptic on the issue of the NASA space program. Two other astronauts, and Grissom were killed in a fire in a 'simulation' exercise on earth, just a few hundred meters away from the control rooms.
Also...a safety inspector in the 60's, who inpected Apollo 11 while it was being constructed claimed that the rocket was unsafe...he wrote a report stating this...a little later his car, with himself, his wife and stepdaughter inside, was struck by a train. And his reports went mysteriously missing.
Next arguement: Above earth there is radiation belts spanning several hundreds or thousands of kilometers. Physicists claim that to get through this radiation field, the rocket would have needed 6 feet or lead shielding around it, to keep the astronauts safe from radiation poisoning.
Now I ask you all...tell me what you all think of this. I think these people put forward very legitimate arguements.
p.s: sorry about the essay
