Video about the spectacular LRO data / 16mm film correlation
« on: October 01, 2019, 07:29:18 AM »
Hi lovely rational people (I hope!),

I've just joined the forum as my membership was finally accepted (I was on a gmail account, bit of a problem so one of the members told me!). I'm looking forward to delving into some of the information here, it looks like a wonderful resource! :)

As means introduction, here is something I put together for the 7th anniversary of Armstrong's death in August to celebrate Apollo 50th and to promote science, logic, reason and critical thinking. I focus on what I think is some of the best evidence for the Moon landings and one which is not very well known outside of forums such as this one, the amazing correlation of the LRO data with the 16mm DAC footage shot out of the LM pilot's window. I then touch on some of the reasons why conspiracy theorists find it hard to think critically or assess evidence correctly, due to the inherent cognitive biases which we all suffer from to a certain extent.

Sorry it's long, I think it's ultimately informative and I hoped to make it entertaining too. I do take the piss out of Moon landing deniers quite a lot in it! Hope someone enjoys :)

P.S. Ignore the slightly clickbaity title, we all know there are thousands of mutually reinforcing pieces of evidence, I just happen to find this particular one the most enjoyable to demonstrate. It's worth watching before anyone starts saying "You will never convince a Moon landing denier!" - I make these points throughout the video. The focus of the video is firmly on the ridicule of deniers whilst also giving other people the confidence to point and laugh at them too :D

Welcome to the board.  I think you will be pleased with your time here.  Great video production, you should contact onebigmonkey, as he has done some similar work on the Apollo imagery.
Truth needs no defense.  Nobody can take those footsteps I made on the surface of the moon away from me.

Hi lovely rational people (I hope!),

Rational, maybe.  Nit-picky, definitely.  Right off the bat, Armstrong's first steps were on July 20, not the 21st (though maybe it was after midnight where you lived at the time?  Stupid round planet.)

Yeah I was going with this from the https://history.nasa.gov/SP-4029/Apollo_11a_Summary.htm (NASA history website):

The commander’s left foot made first contact with the lunar surface at 02:56:15 GMT on 21 July (22:56:15 EDT on 20 July) at 109:24:15

As a Brit, that's good enough for me ;)

It was just before 3pm on July 21st where I was living. I was with the whole school in the assembly hall listening on the radio.


Oh, and welcome to Apollohoax mesonparticle - excellent video!

► What you can assert without evidence, I can dismiss without evidence
► When you argue with idiots you risk being dragged down to their level and beaten with experience.
► Conspiracism is a shortcut to the illusion of erudition

Looks good Meson! you may like the following links, as they show other high resolution photos of the lunar surface and comparisons against LRO and other probes:

Thanks, appreciated! I'm aware of Paul's excellent work highlighting the Hycon camera. I didn't know about your scans, thanks for highlighting :)
