Background discrepancies are also apparent in the lunar video. Click here for the transcript and here for the RealVideo clip. This shot was taped in what was purported to be the first of Apollo 16's lunar excursions. In reality, about three minutes after the first clip.
Background discrepancies are also apparent in the lunar video. Click here for the transcript and here for the RealVideo clip. In reality, about three minutes after the first clip. Fox caption "Day Two". And this video was from the next day, at a different location.
NASA claims the second location was two-and-a-half miles away, but when one video was superimposed over the other the locations appear identical. Conspiracy theorists claim that even closer examination of the photos suggest evidence of doctoring.
That last line is pretty funny. The audio you hear of the astronauts in those clips was actually all from different times than the video! Again, had the program producers bothered to check their sources, they would have received a prompt answer.
I emailed the editor of the ALSJ. It was pretty easy to do, and he answered me in minutes.
Ralph Rene, a self-proclaimed physicist, claims that the astronauts shifting in the cabin would change the center of mass, throwing the lunar lander off balance. Thus, the landing was faked.
There was a feedback control system on board the lander which determined if the axis were shifting. During descent, the engine nozzle could shift direction slightly to compensate for changes in the center of gravity of the lander the technical term for this is gimbaling the nozzle.
During ascent, the engine nozzle was fixed in position, so there was a series of smaller rockets which was used to maintain the proper attitude. So we have a case of selective thinking on the part of the HBs. My thanks again to Apollo astronaut Charlie Duke for correcting a technical error in a previous version of this section.
After describing the above scenario to me, he said the ascent stage of the lander was "a sporty ride". There is actually a simple reason why you cannot see the flame from the lander when it took off.
The fuels they used produced no visible flame! The lander used a mix of hydrazine and dinitrogen tetroxide an oxidizer. These two chemicals ignite upon contact and produce a product that is transparent.
We expect to see a flame because of the usual drama of liftoff from the Earth; the flame and smoke we see from the Shuttle, for example, is because the solid rocket boosters do actually produce them, while the lunar lander did not.
Here is a brief webpage describing this. Note too that fuels like this are still used today, and indeed rockets in space produce little or no visible flame.
I heard an account sorry, no citation; the link has since gone dead that the cameras used for the ascent of the lander were fairly primitive, even for that era this is usually the case in space travel, where it takes extensive testing to make sure things work properly; during that time the state of the art advances.
Even if it were visible, the flash of the exhaust may have easily been missed by those cameras. My original assertion about not seeing the flame was because the Moon has no air, and we see flame from rockets on Earth because we have an atmosphere.
This does have some effect the pressure of air constrains the rocket exhaust and helps produce the effect we see but the larger reason the flame is invisible is due to the fuel used.

Question Is the earth's rotation slowing down? Asked by: Mallory Thomson Answer Yes it is, due to a transfer of Earth's rotational momentum to the Moon's orbital momentum as tidal friction slows the Earth's rotation.
