A Funny Thing Happened on the Way to the Moon

If it wasn’t possible to better the Soviets in the space race, which was really a race of technology armaments, what could be done? How could America offset the threat of superior weaponry? Throughout the history of rivalry and war, astute generals of lesser armies than their counterparts have used deceit and misinformation as a method to achieve victory.

Surrounding the earth, beginning at an altitude of 1,000 miles and extending an additional 25,000 miles, lie lethal bands of radiation called the Van Allen Radiation Belts.

Every manned space mission in history (including Mercury, Gemini, Soyuz, Skylab and the Space Shuttle) has been well below this deadly radiation field…all except Apollo.

Recently uncovered footage of the crew of Apollo 11 staging part of their mission proves that the astronauts never made it beyond earth orbit. The goal was to fool the Soviet Union about US strategic capability during the height of the Cold War. Deceit, Greed, and Injustice… A sad thing happened on the way to the moon. The truth will astound you!

  • R. Palmer

    I love how the people make these things skip the easy proofs. Do they think for… oh ya right… here’s the deal.

    The Soviets were tracking the Apollo missions with the same “military” technology that NASA was tracking them with. If the Apollo spacecraft never left orbit or were never on orbit they would be the first to point that out. DUH….

    • fuckgreece

      The soviets who for years knew that the americunts could barely achieve low orbit let alone go to the moon. They did tell their people that the moon landing was fake. Those retards at NASA couldnt go to the moon today let alone in the 1960s go 6 times. 6 fucking times to go and come back from the moon. Yet 60+ years later here we are and never have been back once, or 2 they dont show the so called “Evidence” they left behind. NASA wants to prove it landed take satellite pictures of the moon showing the rover and the other stuff they left behind. but they dont do that why? they cant? No because they never went to the moon. And the American government would never lie to it people

        Please provide a reference for the soviet government telling it’s people that nasa’s trip to the moon was faked.. to my knowledge this never happened, so you shouldn’t say it did with no evidence. Citing that we have not returned to the moon as evidence we were never there is silly. We have never gone back because it’s ridiculously expensive with no payoff…there isn’t anything on the moon.  happened, so you shouldn’t say it did with no evidence.

          As for the soviets telling their people I heard that from somone cant find any sources, There is no pay off on the moon? Moon is filled with Helium 3 which can be a new fuel source to power the earth. Helium 3 runs at $2,000/liter so definitely there is a big pay off going to the moon. Look at it this way, The Hubble telescope can see galaxies hundreds if thousands if millions of light years away, Shit you can see a cars license plate from google earth, why doesnt nasa just point Hubble towards the moon and take pictures of the so called “evidence left behind” uh? In the 1960s 10 MB hard drive was the size of a fucking room, the computer on board the lunar lander had the same capabilities of that of a digital hand watch today? and you expect me to believe that send people to the moon? The russians were 20 years ahead in space technology, not that im a fan of the russians fuck the russians but they were first man in space, clocked more hours in space and all of a sudden americans go to the moon? I dont deny the Rovers Landing on Mars because I do believe based on current technology, based on current computer power, based on the experience NASA has with space it is all reasonable to believe the rovers landed on mars! There is no fucking way in hell in 1960s they go 6 times, Not once not twice but 6!

          • fuckgreece

            Please dont tell me those pictures show evidence wtf I cant see anything? All I see is fucking blurry pictures that show nothing but rocks. You can see the Astronauts boot tracks but you cant see the rovers haaaa is this a joke. Shit i go on google earth right now you can see cars from space clear as daylight. All the powerful telescopes and satelites and best they can come up with is those pictures. they got to do better than that.

          • Dedomrazibaba

            Pretty stupid pictures there?Are you serious?It’s obvious that the USA was not able to go to the moon in 1969.What about the radiation belt?Anything?

    Initially I had thought they actually made moon orbit, but I couldn’t see how they could use that contraption of a moon lander, actually land on the moon, and then make it back and dock with the command capsule. This is a product of our Alice in Wonderland world.

        C’mon guys!  I know “Ignorance is Bliss” but in retrospect, it’s highly unlikely NASA went to the moon using 1960s technology.  Ever used 1960s technology?  I have, and I can tell you that they didn’t land using a computer with less memory than a pocket calculator!  Ever consider that the U.S. government lies?  I realize they’ve never done so in the past, but, well…

    I think the perspective angles on the shadows in the photographs are quite mysterious indeed. They’re correct on that one, if it were the sun they’d be in perfect parallel. What you all think?!

    FOR WHAT IT’S WORTH:

    No human has ever stepped on the moon, it’s obvious that we have been lied to and over most historical events!

    As for the reasons the Soviet Unioun did not blow the whistle on the US, well it never admitted that the Bolsheviks were Jews, hence the Sovs were Jew controlled until recent!

    Jews control the US and both govs are subject to Jew finance!

    The Jew doesn’t mind if we believe his fairy stories, so long as we don’t seek out the truth, because it’s makes us free!

    To date, we do not possess the technology to travel beyond the “Van Allen belts”, that’s Gods way of sayin, not so fast hombre, get rid of Usury, Globalislavery, er clean ya daaang act up!

  • searlepa

    I feel its strange that conspirators say people blindly believe the moon landings happened, when there is proof beyond rational doubt that we went there. and they comment on 60s technology not being enough to get us there when we didn’t have the means to realistically fake it have you seen  special effects from the 60s they didn’t have the means to make it believable. also a big argument is the reflectors left behind, the moon although having some weak reflective properties doesn’t have the strength to reflect the kind of lasers shot at it. anyone with independent thought and a non buy-est attitude when researching can find proof that we went…. a lot of proof and on the side of conspirators you find a lot of rumour and out of context quotes. to sum up this ridiculously long comment anybody doubting the moon landing go out looking for proof that we did go there instead of more so called proof that we didn’t, when i started researching i believed we did go there so i looked at all the conspiracy books, films, websites and chat rooms i could find. if you look properly there will be no doubt. (sorry this is so long) 

  • Searlepa

    just one more thing, this documentary is honestly a joke, referring to part 4, so not only did nasa have video evidence of them talking about faking but they accidentally sent it to the film makers who just happen to be conspiracy theorists. if this really was a tape with proof of them faking it after taking all that time and effort would they honestly not destroy the tape, and if a tape was in existence proving them to be faking it wouldn’t they be a bit fucking careful who they sent it to. i mean come on?!?!!

  • Mquallet

    Crikey:     It took Apollo only about an hour to pass through the worst part of the radiation belts – once on the outbound trip and once again on the return trip. The total radiation dose received by the astronauts was about one rem. A person will experience radiation sickness with a dose of 100-200 rem, and death with a dose of 300+ rem. Clearly the doses received fall well below anything that could be considered a significant risk. Despite claims that “lead shielding meters thick would have been needed”, NASA found it unnecessary to provide any special radiation shielding.
    The hoax advocates also make the mistake of limiting themselves to two-dimensional thinking. The Van Allen Radiation Belts consist of a doughnut-shaped region centered on Earth’s magnetic equator. The translunar trajectories followed by the Apollo spacecraft were typically inclined about 30 degrees to Earth’s equator, therefore Apollo bypassed all but the edges of the radiation belts, greatly reducing the exposure.

    • Russell Hopwood

      The Apollo craft actually only needed Aluminium sheets to shield them from the worst of this radiation. Also I I have mention here, with a really good telescope you can see the tracks and the sodding Rover still left on the moons surface.

      The fact is its actually a lot easier to land on the moon than it is to visit the bottom of our own ocean, it poses less issues by quite a long way and we have pretty much been to the deepest depths of our sea. So why the hell would you think they didn’t land on the moon, seriously the math to do so is simple physics, not much harder than A-level physics, and your telling me NASA couldn’t do this! Also they were given help by DARPA, who pretty much made every item of technology we use today (iPhones, GPS, the Internet, etc) around 20 to 30 years ago.

  • Not important

    I’ve been researching this for a while now. When I first heard of the concept they were faked I thought it was bullshit, but I looked into it, researched it, hell I’ve even spoken to a few serious academics that believe it too (honestly!), so I was very swayed.

    However in the end I grew a fucking brain and after journeying for dawdling a while down the alleyway of conspiracy and it’s sidestreets of vacuous crap, I used simple logic and reasoning to reassess all the available evidence and reach my destination of the truth. They happened people, get over it. 

    Aside from that, I think theres a bigger problem here, which is this: I really couldn’t give a fuck anyway. At the end of the day we have so many problems on this planet, I study conflict resolution and my heart breaks whenever I meet a hard-working, extremely intelligent individual who would rather spend the majority of their time getting to the bottom of this mystery instead of considering how to substantially improve life for ourselves and our planet. Its just a fucking rock. I don’t care if we went or not, at least not whilst our own ones getting FUBAR’d. 

    Peace

    People need to wake up, it is impossible to land on the moon. Doesn’t matter if it was in the 60’s or today, it defies the laws of physics and cannot be done ever.
    The reason for this is, as everyone knows, is the moon is made of cheese. If you did try to land on it you would melt the cheese and become trapped in the sticky goo. NASA and the Russians both realised this and agreed to perpetuate the lie so as to make everyone feel good.
    The real question that remains to be answered is, what kind of cheese is it made of?

    • Tiggersuk

      Only Wallace and Gromit know the answer to the type of cheese question…

    I don’t really know much about this subject.  All I have are my own personal observations on the matter, as well as a healthy amount of respect for individuals who would doubt these types of events, because the moment we just “take it all at face value” is the moment we let those who’s authority we have acknowledged take us to places we absolutely don’t want to go.  I myself can’t prove whether or not man has landed on the moon, but what I CAN do is ask the question:  why go there?

    The media of the 50’s and 60’s is rife with rants against communism.  To be honest, we’re seeing all sorts of flaws with democracy and capitalism these days, so one has to wonder whether or not the rants during the start of the “Cold War” were justified, or whether or not it was just the most expedient means to mobilize a nation to greater and greater levels of competitive production:  aka capitalism as it relates to government.

    I don’t have all the facts about man going up into space.  I don’t know how many lunar landings there might have been – if any.  What I do know is that WWII was very clearly waged in terms of air superiority – a means of combat that was heretofore unheard of prior to this period of our history.  If you could dominate the skies, then you could all but assure the outcome of a conflict.  It’s what lead to the atom bomb, as well as the development of spy planes, radar, high powered cameras and eventually satellite technology.  Having the ability to observe your target’s movements beforehand made for much greater and more efficient exploitations of air dominance … in theory.  In truth, it is the fact that man – for the first time ever in its history – possessed a range of weapons that if but a fraction of them were used, could wipe out all of civilization.  We NEEDED to know what was going on!

    But why go to the moon?  What did it prove?  The superiority of scientific theory from one nation to the next?  There’s talk of a space race that happened back in the 60’s, and there’s men who’ve flatly stated that they walked on the moon, and why would they have any reason to lie about it?  However, my skepticism does not lie with the men who took part in these missions.  My skepticism remains rooted in the motivation behind getting to the moon … or the motivation behind convincing the world that they did.

    All the arguments have been laid out on the table in this and other documentaries, including the one’s advocating the lunar landings.  Would it be easier to get to the moon with the advances in space technology that we built in the 60’s, or would it be easier to compartmentalize technological development in a need-to-know effort towards duping an entire planet?  Would it be enough to say that we got to the moon first, look at us go, or would it be enough to say we developed the atom bomb in secret, and won a war because of it, so now we’re going to take that method and apply it to demonstrating to the world in no uncertain terms that we possess the ability to put ourselves beyond doubt, beyond questioning of our superiority, through means of deception and subterfuge?

    The only reason why I ask these questions in this way is that we are living in a day and age where corporate interests are furthered by government orders.  Bailouts.  Fabrications of evidence to justify wars.  Promises to the people in order to get elected, but to date not followed through with.  Media that has been handcuffed and coerced into showing only part of the story.  Throughout all of this, we dare not question the official story.  As a people, we dare not ask the hard questions of those we’ve placed in power.  We dare not ask how those falling towers could justify bringing “preemptive” war to foreign countries, at unprecedented cost to them and with unprecedented profits for those who had a vested interest in assuring the outcome.

    Like the towers, the lunar landing, whether real or fabricated, were a symbol, a rallying point for the people who watched it.  They were also a means through which a number of government policies were changed or “altered slightly” in order to push through mandates that would have otherwise garnered unwanted attention.  In that light, they might be considered distractions and diversions from the true agenda, and if that be the case, then one has to again consider – in the case of the lunar landings – how hard would it be to keep 400,000 (citation needed for exact number) of people involved either quiet or in the dark as to the truth behind it, including those men who – according to this documentary – may or may not have walked on the moon?

    The Russians did beat us into space, after all …

  • Disenchanted001

    well in my opinion knowing how the US military likes spending tax payers money, building bases and blowing stuff up it is amazing that they haven’t been back… thats obviously assuming they ever went in the firstplace… Alan bean who was supposedly the 4th man on the moon and seems a nice decent likeable chap claims he went.. myabe he genuinely thinks he did!! mk ultra etc… who knows… either way it has to be said that the landing footage does look fake, also satellite images of junk left on the moon could be faked, even junk could be remotely dumped on the moon at some point when needed… so the truth may never be known… just look at the calibre of politicians and the political climate at the time and decide for yourself… as with 911 and 7/7 in the UK… would you trust any of those guys?
