Oooops! Disregard - It worked on a subsequent attempt.


Hi!  I get an error message when trying to use the 'Mark All Messages As Read' button.

I believe Leonov did nearly die; after all, he had to depressurise his suit to a dangerous level to get back into the spacecraft.

Hi everyone,

I transferred the website and forum to a new web host today, and it didn't exactly go smoothly. I think everything is back to normal now, but please let me know if you find any issues.

The Reality of Apollo / Chariots for Apollo (Pellegrino & Stoff)

I am half way through this - what are other people's thoughts?

It's written without references and has some obvious sensationalised inaccuracies (Luna 1 was not a steel ball, Leonov did not nearly die during his EVA, and Thomas Gold was not a geologist). 

A few titbits that I have not seen elsewhere, some seem reasonable, some improbable.  Were astronauts really not interested in being involved with testing the LEM?  Did three three Apollo 1 "test conductors' (including the "test director") actually faint at their consoles when the fire happen?

The Reality of Apollo / Apollo 17 Earth at Station 2 - evidence of rotation

It's often the case that something a denier presents makes you look at things in more detail and you find something new.

In this case a twitter user was claiming some nonsense or other about the views of Earth above the horizon at the south massif.

I looked at the photographic record and found that Cernan took two separate views of Earth over the imaginatively named 'Boulder 2', separated by about 15 minutes. That, I thought, should be just enough to detect some rotation. Well what do you know (you might need to click the image to get it to show the movement):



The images used are AS17-137-20910 & 20961. SkySafari's excellent Apollo mission app is included for the avoidance of doubt.

General Discussion / Re: Apollo hoax documentary title?

David Percy is probably one of the least knowledgeable hoaxsters out there. He was the one that came up with the idiotic "superlight" to explain the obvious single lighting we see. He dishonesty uses visor reflections as his so called evidence. This video tears his argument apart with just a single piece of footage:

I can't remember where this was downloaded from, looks like Apollo 17, but there was another light blocking moment just after as I recall.
