The Hoax Theory / Re: The Blunder's Crock

It's quite ironic that Jarrah finds it "amusing" to observe us in our "echo chamber" when his main platform at the moment is a group that actively bans and polices people who oppose the moon hoax claim:

Let's clarify things: I am not claiming it is an expiry date, show me where I stated deinfitely that it was.

What I did was query whether it might be based on this:

It merely seemed off that a deadline for adverts is 5 days before the magazine was actually published.

He has deliberately misinterpreted what I posted above. If the date on the cover is the date it hit the news stands then fair enough, I am happy that I have misunderstood the dates given above.

He is, however, factually incorrect about the first release of Apollo 11 images - the first release was on July 29th, not August 1st - UK & North American newspapers were featuring them on July 30th. See here:

Not everywhere is Australia. A book I have suggests a few select images were released on the 27th (

It's not desperation Jarrah, it's fact checking, exploring all the possible answers to questions, making sure you've explored all the options rather than deciding on an a priori conclusion and sticking with it regardless of how stupid it is.

Just for fun, here's a high resolution scan of the rock from my copy of AWST:

and here's the same rock in the 'March to the moon' positive

Show me where the air brushing is. Show me how it differs from same rock in the preceding photograph in the magazine.

All he's done is prove that the LPI's suggested date for the origin of C-rock photo is incorrect. Anyone who bothers to collect contemporary Apollo memorabilia, as I do, could have told him that. I have many books and magazines published at the time that feature it. I also own many things that don't. Other people do as well, here's a NASA issue 'red number' version clearly showing it:

An official NASA photo, available to anyone who asked for it, where NASA were so clever as to faithfully recreate a view shown on live TV but so dumb as to leave a letter visible on a rock. Uh-huh.

The real issue here is not when the photo first appeared, but what the photo shows.

The photo shows a fibre trapped on some versions of the photo made for public release. You have not proven otherwise. You have not demonstrated that it is not a fibre, you have not proved that it was deliberately airbrushed out to hide it, you have not proved that it existed on the original positive as it came out of the camera, and even if it was, you have not proved that the photograph was taken here on Earth.

Occam's razor alone should tell you that it is a fault introduced during reproduction of the original, and not some ludicrous 'set dressing' artefact.

That's the one. Although it does have an admin, he rarely posts, just keeps the spam filter going really.

It appears the transcript is fake. Comparing it to a real communication transcript, which uses 1, 2 or 3 letter message shorthand, the very verbose transcript doesn't hold up.

While I'm at it, these contemporary slides are also from ebay:

I saw his post this morning. I have updated my page with some helpful arrows to point out which clouds can be identified in both photos.

To re-iterate: the photos were not taken at the same time, and do show the same weather features.

I have an actual original, and it's very definitely not there :)

By sheer coincidence, I'd just purchased the edition of 'Aciation Week and Space Technology (dated May 8th 1972) when JW posted his photo, a scan of which is now uploaded here:

I'm intrigued by the date of publication, as there is a classified ads section that says adverts for the next edition should be in by May 3rd. I have a recollection of magazine dates being more an 'expiry', so to speak, rather than the date they hit the news stand, can anyone confirm?

If I'm right, this would suggest that the photo used on the AWST was released at the same time as the press photo JW has purchased.

Again, it's all moot - even if someone did airbrush out an obvious blemish, it is not proof that the image was taken on Earth, nor does it prove that it was on the original photo.

Edit to add: My scan of Aviation Weekly isn't the best, I may re-do it, but here's a photo of the PSR page:
