    Ho Ho Ho. That's funny, considering you probably got your scientific facts from an ABC entertainment program. All of the popular 'facts' spouted by conspiracy theorists can be proven wrong in detail by people who know what they're talking about - photographers, scientists etc.

    The best place to read these is probably the Bad Astronomy website.

    I'm just curious: Why are there no stars when we see photo's from such missions? Just a question and nothing more.

    Because the cameras are adjusted so that they detect very little light (low light sensitivity) or otherwise it would be too blinding, thus making pictures quite useless,
    there is no atmosphere that absorbs the light of the sun and other objects

    Those that were in the golden leaf Book of Mormons, that the beautiful alien angel took away.

    Because the foreground objects are so bright that short exposures were used to take the shots. That meant that starlight was not captured on the film.

    You can test this yourself:

    Try taking a photo of somebody outside at night with the camera flash on. Make sure you get the person framed against the sky, and make sure there are stars out. See if there are any stars in the photo, or if the sky just looks black.

    I woke up ridiculously early this morning. Lacking anything better to do, I watched a replay of Dr. Griffin's Nov. 3 testimony before Congress on NASA TV. He stated an interesting fact that bears to this thread: in the 1960s, the number of people working for NASA (civil servants, contractors, university researchers, ...) was 400,000. Today that number is only 75,000. This is one of the main reasons NASA is doing a lot less today than it was during the Apollo era.

    Crazy-ass 1960s. We need another golden age, but then we'd also need to resuscitate the USSR as well. Or maybe we already have China.

    Despite computer advances, manpower might still count.

    Troll. <img src="http://www.fadzter.com/smilies/finger.gif">

    James R, why haven't you permanently banned URI (aka Nero, aka Zarkov)?<P>

    What makes you think URI is either Nero or Zarkov? Where is the trolling you're referring to?

    Oh c’mon!

    Anyone starting a thread stating that the Moon landings were faked is obviously deliberately attempting to stimulate arguments and cause trouble. Isn’t that the definition of an internet troll? Doesn’t that warrant moderation?

    As for URI’s identity, you obviously don’t spend much time at the SSSF any more. Zarkov has been posting as “Zeno” over there for a while and there have been at least half a dozen instances where he has posted the exact same trolling threads on both the SSSF and Sciforums. He posted this exact same topic on SSSF (11/11/2005 2:22:37 PM
    Subject: Moonwalk Fake post id: 1913440). Even without the dual postings, it is completely obvious who URI is – exact same posting style, exact same subject matter, exact same nutball trolling - every time. There is no doubt whatsoever.<P>

    Believe it or not, some people actually believe the moon landings might have been faked.

    Only if the same person keeps up with the same thing over and over again, with no apparent recognition of past threads on the same topic. Now that is trolling.

    Actually, I've been unable to access SSSF from home for most of this year. Finally, with a little help from somebody at the ABC, I sorted out what the problem was. Nevertheless, since I've popped back in there a few times it doesn't look to me that the forum is much different than it was a year or two ago, so I can't see myself spending a lot of time there.

    Well, there is there. Here is here. One reason I don't visit SSSF as often any more is that I think it is a little under-moderated. On the other hand, here I get to make some decisions on that kind of thing.

    URI, Zarkov and Nero all have different IP addresses. It is always possible that Zarky is using an anonymizer, but until I'm sure they are all the same person, I will treat them as different. Anonymizers slow down your internet connection anyway, so if somebody is using one, it's really their loss, and quite pathetic. I almost feel sorry for them.

    If it wasn't a fake, why is there so much discussion about it being a fake?

    For precisely the same reason that there are people who believe aliens are flying UFOs, believe in ghosts, goblins, fortune-tellers, mystics, healing power of copper bracelets and magnets, and any other kind of absurdity you care to name.

    You forgot about the Illuminati lying about plate tectonics to cover up their biggest conspircy: evolution.

    No joke, MattMarr said that once.

    Yeah, coming from him, I can believe that. Sounds just like him.

    But most of those things are actually real, even though there are fake fortune tellers also for example.
