Same "moon hoax" picture as just a few messages ago The shadows diverge because the leg of the LEM is slanted, but the astronaut looks way too small in relation to the LEM. Maybe it's all exactly right, but the thing to question is whether the legs of the LEM are about a foot wide as they seem to be, whether the pad under them is really about three to six feet in width, or whatever. I think there is exaggerated foreshortening in that picture. It is really hard for anyone, even experts, to reliably take something like this apart forensically and arrive at what really happened. If you very carefully draw your lines of perspective, you can see that the astronaut is enough further from the camera to look significantly smaller than he would if he were standing exactly the same distance away as the leg of the LEM. I'm going for the idea that we really did go and if it can be proven that anything was staged, we still went. Someone staged something to revise something, that's nothing new.
