Question: Who thinks we went to the Moon?

Recommended Posts

Hi there,I couldn't see any way to make this a poll but I was wondering whether people here think that the Apollo missions to the Moon were faked or not.I've seen the documentaries, I've read the articles, and I don't know what to think.All I'll say is this: two of my favourite movies are 'The Right Stuff' and 'Apollo 13' - if we didn't go to the Moon then I'd be very disappointed!(If anyone at AVSIM can turn this into a poll with yes/no/maybe(!) choices then I'd appreciate it!)Iain Spowart,Scotland.Webmaster and photographer,Scottish Claymores 2002Cheerleaders Fan Sitehttp://avsim.iainspowart.com/2002-s.jpghttp://www.claymorescheerleaders.comhttp://www.iainspowart.com

Hey, If we didn't go, then it would mean several thousands of people were involved in the coverup and that they have all stayed silent for more than 30 years. A highly unlikely happening. But then again all of those involved in the JFK acoverup, the TWA 800 coverup, the Area 51 coverups, FDR's Pearl Harbor coverup, etc., have stayed silent for many years........Bob :)

United States - which you call "we" (please remember there are some other countries... ;)) - did go to the moon. Those conspiracy theories are so terribly naive. Plus, they base their theories on things that aren't facts. For instance, they claim the shadows are falling wrong. Haha... Show me some evidence. :) The flag was "flapping" in the wind... Yea right. :D It was still and we all know it was a technical failure with the flag. It wasn't flapping. And hey, all of you who invented those conspiracy theories, do you seriously think NASA would be that stupid to miss such a detail? ;) I don't think so. :)Also people saw when the space ship was taking off, and watched it during the trip, with telescopes. Anyone thinks they should have faked this one, two, three, four, five, six times? :-lol :-lolHehe. :) I can just laugh at these "theories".So, no need to worry. NASA has done a great job here. :)Dave

haha..I agree. Those conspiracy theories don't sell me either. Too many people involved for it to be a cover-up IMO. These theories are made by peole that make sites like this one.http://www.anomalies-unlimited.com/So, YES..I do believe that the United States was on the moon on the day that people saw it on TV.Take careMike

David,When I said 'we' I meant the human race - I'm not from the United States either. I agree, no way could the Apollo launches be faked. But did they get to the Moon, or was it just a movie set at Area 51!I want to believe that they landed on the Moon. (My next watch purchase could depend on it!) I'm just curious what everyone here thinks :-)Iain Spowart,Scotland.

I know we (humanity) definitely went to the moon, because we are highly capable of anything we put our minds to. That and my dad worked on a small part of the project.What irritates me is that we don't have the equipment or "technology" to do it today because we're blowing money blowing up stuff. Why invent and progress when you can blow up and kill?Hmmm...kinda like what was going on in the 60's when we first did it, thus turning people's interest away from space to the real problems on Earth. Wish we had that part today.What's really funny with all those conspiracy people is that in doing so, they are saying that humanity has no abvility to do anything - it must all be fake. Tells me a lot about those people's own abilities. I guess everything is fake and we're all just sitting in caves unable to bang the rocks together. It's all made up in Hollyrock.

Scott,I remember reading an article by Carl Sagan many years ago pointing out that if we (the human race) stopped spending money on the arms-race (this article was back in the '80s) we could have sent people to Mars etc.I had always hoped that by the time we got to 2001 the technology in the film '2001' would be commonplace. Alas it was not to be.Iain Spowart,Scotland.

why do you guys in Scotland care? 99% of the time you can't even see the moon, let alone know whether there is any activity going on there, and the 1% you can see it, you are doing Hagmane (spelling???) or practiciing for it! And then you wouldn't know it existed anyway! :-lolThe truth is that what we really did is send a deep submergence vehicle to Atlantis. The images from the "moon" were actually staged shots with Atlantians to throw off the Russians, who in turn would throw billions of dollars in their own space efforts. Proof? Who do you think informed the U.S. Navy of the position of the Titanic, who in turn fed that to Bob Ballard of WHOI? It sure wasn't a radio signal from the moon! :-abduct

Tom,You crack me up! :-lolP.S. If you're at HMS Collingwood again anytime soon, try to find CWEA Paula Day and say 'hi' to her from me! :-)Edit: P.P.S. It's spelt 'Hogmany' but since my name is the Anglicised version of 'Ivan' I'm entitled to celebrate (or practice :-)) it with vodka :-lolIain Spowart,Scotland.

Oh, I will most certainly be there again and at Abby Wood and it increasingly looks like Portsdown too .... Are there any warning notices that I should be sent in email before I say "hi"? :-lol

Tom,No warning messages required. I knew her during my time at Colling-grad (:-lol) and have just been back in touch with her after 10 years thanks to the http://www.friendsreunited.com website.She's going on to HMS Southampton next year as the gyro maintainer (hopefully won't be running aground anywhere!) but she's back at Collingwood just now for training.Iain Spowart,Scotland.

Gyro Maintainer??? You have got to be kidding me. What's she working on? NCS-1's, MK19's, MK37's or MK12's??? Or is she working on MK49's or NATO SINS? :-lolHave her send me an email... We have a lot common "interests", I suspect. Actually, I was at the Gyro Maintainer's school 6 weeks or so ago.

Tom,Check your private messages for her boyfriend's e-mail address. I couldn't believe it the other week during the chat session that you'd been to Collingwood. If you can say 'hi' to her for me then that would be amazing!I wonder if anyone else at Collingwood remembers me, although it has been an awfully long time since I was there! Try the Collingwood Club - I was on the committee for a couple of years.Iain Spowart,Scotland.

The moon?? You mean that humans have actually stepped foot on the moon? Why am I the last to find out about everything :-hmmm. I should have listened to my mom and read those history books :-hah. It doesn't help that I spend most of my freetime here at AVSIM...BTW - reception is terrible today. I hope your not being bombarded because of "star" wars.

Iain, I was lucky enough in 1969 to be working as a Photographer's Mate in the US Navy at NAS Corpus Christi, Texas. An Officer friend of mine went to NASA and was able to have a few sets of prints done up from the orignal 2 1/4 X 2 1/4 negatives taken on the lunar landing mission. He gave out a set to a few of us for Christmas presents. :-) Still have them and they're not fakes.

Heh... Great site Mike... Added to my "Laughs" list.Here's another one for your own if you haven't seen it - its a classic:http://www.stopabductions.comI have no doubt that we went to the moon by the way. After Rosswell, we were given instructions on how to build computers and jet aircraft and, and, and... How do you think we were able to manage such a feat in only eight years!And they are still controlling us today. All it takes is a look at our President to know that... Sheesh.Elrond

Ay Robert, you fell for the most devious of all their tricks. A "friend" with contacts at NASA gives you prints from negatives taken at the "moon"? Ever questioned whether those photos really were made at the moon?Come on, how could anything survive the hard radiation of outer space :-lolNo, those images were made at the secret facility the CIA build as a coverup and to fake the moonlandings in Antarctica.All the people who might talk were taken there and frozen solid, to be replaced by aliens, everyone knows that! :-rotorThere isn't even a moon up there, it's a giant spaceship from which the aliens control the world through the CIA and the UN which are their agencies on earth.Now I'd better go into deep hiding, maybe I can get a ride on a flying saucer before they find me for brainwashing.

Talk about conspiracy theories? Well here is one for all you to chew on. This one was documented on the History Channel. According to the story, NASA and the goverment came up with a code phrase (Santa Clause) for the astronauts to use if they saw any unexplained objects or things, i.e., UFO's and the like. Well, during one of the Apollo missions (sorry, do not remember which one) as the capsule made it's way around the back side of the moon, apparently they saw something. When they keyed up and talked to Mission Control again (and knowing that what they said, the world was listening in), one them stated something to the effect of, "What a beautiful site and I can't believe it but we saw Santa Clause (or something to that affect). When he got to the part about Santa Clause, his voice noticeably went way up in octave. Worried that people may start asking what highly trained astronauts were thinking if they kept saying that phrase, they ordered from there on out that all crews just document incidents with UFO's and not say anything over the radio and report everything once back on Earth. During the program, they got ahold of that particular radio transmission and played it. When listening to it, there is just normal communications going on and all of a sudden that Santa Clause phrase seems to come out of nowhere. Of course NASA and the goverment refused to comment on it.

One of the flights that circled the moon before landing was during christmas. They even had a cooked turkey on board for a christmas diner.That's probably where that urban legend started :-)

Hmmmm...now that you mention it, my dreams do seem much more joined than my "waking real life" does. ;-)So where's the woman in Red???? All I get is this "PROGRAM ERROR - ACCESS DENIED" flash before my eyes everytime I think I see her (or get close to any woman for that matter). :-lol
