Brake?

Did the Apollo capsule actually fire some kind of braking thruster?  I have always thought they returned with the main engine on the SM pointing back towards the moon (making subtle course corrections using the RCS as needed on the return flight) then just before arrival, they dumped the SM and translated the CM to face heat shield first and hit the Earth's atmosphere at the specified angle so as not to burn up or skip off, and allowed aerodynamic drag do the braking for them?

Bjorkman doesn't believe in aerodynamic braking though. So I expect he thinks that they had a big anchor that they just threw out to slow the CM down.....

Wait a minute. Are you suggesting there was _no_ anchor?

If you say that there was then you must be a gubernmint/NASA shill....

So in Earth orbit the CSM was disconnected from the last stage of the Saturn rocket, rotated 180° and then connected to the Lunar Module?

Yes.

And Walter did it?

Walter Cronkite was an American broadcast journalist for CBS News.  He described how the maneuver was completed to the American public on TV.  Why are you obsessed with him?!



Quote
And then the CSM with the Lunar Module on top of the CM was sent off to the Moon.

Yes.

Why not?

Does that mean you accept you were wrong?

Shall I tell him that a man called James Burke did it in the UK, and wait for his head to explode?

Thread necromancy alert, 6 years, just about.  Andromeda hasn't been here in months, and Heiwa has been banned.

Hey, you!  "It's" with an apostrophe means "it is" or "it has."  "Its" without an apostrophe means "belongs to it."

Man, some people just don't know when to lay off. His thread there has something like three times as many pages as this one, and I think TFES has a higher post/page ratio than here.

Edit: Yeah, they do 30 posts per page versus the 15 here. So, obviously, the thread is 6 times longer and still growing.

One must realise that Heiwa is fast running out of venues that will allow his wild claims. Thus he must necessarily seek further reaches of the fringe to even have a chance of posting anything. Do not forget, he was banned by Simon Shack. That takes some effort.

Anyone who claims rockets work in a vacuum or that radiation/nuclear power is real risks a ban at Clues Forum.  Last year Simon Shack started promoting his own theory of how the Solar System works.

Not a member there either. Why? Are dissenting voices banned? No. Because dissenting voices never even get that far. The sign-up procedure requires an interview with Simon, and one must agree with him.

It is really out there. It competes with the Icke forum on the scale of flat out nuts.

The thing that cracks me up is that Heiwa was banned for being too rational. Wow.
