The absence of stars in lunar surface photographs, film used to be reduced from a high levels of radiation, unexplained optical anomalies in the photographs undulating flags move in a wavy pattern or with a rising and falling motion absence of blast rocket engines should have blasted away tons of moon dust ,NASA never set foot on Mare Tranquilitatus, this techniques that developed for his movie for years of 2000 quickly realized that traveling to the moon is impossible,book dedicated to the subject, Bill Kaysing's about landings that never occurred.

Either this book was written as a complete satire or this guy is a wack-o kook! I was laughing so hard that, at times, I had tears rolling down my face! This is what other satirists can only dream of, but I had a nagging suspicious this guy is serious! The typographical errors, incomplete sentences, and complete lack of being able to make any logical conclusions from this books is overwhelming - but don't let that stop you from buying it, because folks, it's a laugh a minute!

This book is pure comic genius. I mean, the premise alone is a riot, but the execution is beyond hilarity. Kaysing is a master at satire! I was rolling in the aisles...

I've read quite a few feeble stories now that have been made up on the internet regarding the theory that the Apollo moon landings were faked. Not only is the evidence that they were real far too convincing to have any doubt it was a hoax, but all their evidence is misleading and inaccurate. For example, perhaps the oldest and most favorite argument is the abscence of stars in the background of any Apollo photographs on the lunar surface. Without an atmosphere to diffuse their light, the stars' light should be plainly visible on the moon. Well, the truth is, there were plenty of stars visible on the moon's surface, it's just that the cameras used for the Apollo missions used short exposure times, so they could not take in light from distant light sources such as the sun. The silly hoax theorists couldn't find stars in the photographs, so they assumed stars weren't visible. Some will then argue that they would have used long exposure cameras in order to capture the glorious stars visible on the moon, but they could not because the astronauts were always on the nearside of the moon during the six missions, or the light side. There are other arguments stipulating that the shadows on the astronauts are too light, but that happens because the sunlight reflects off the lunar surface, the spacesuits, scientific experiments, the lunar module, the flag, etc. Also, the fall-off effect out to the horizon visible in some photographs is another case of them assuming that's the way it was because they saw it in a photograph; the cameras were not sufficiently advanced to capture such details. They also point out that in the astronauts' visors there are some strange things. They say that the sun's light should result in parallel lines of light, but the round visors badly distorted the reflection. And in the famous photograph of Buzz Aldrin on Apollo 11, that 'mystery object' in his visor is obviously the flag if you look at it closely. Some will also say that in the moon's 250 degree temperatures, film will crinkle into a ball, and the astronauts could not have taken photos on the lunar surface. The cameras were exposed to survive daylight, however, and the film was encapsuled in magazines that protected it even if the cameras were left in direct sunlight. The astronauts were able to fly beyond the Van Allen Belt because they were only traveling through it for four hours and the the ship was strong enough to counteract its radiation, squelching another of their arguments, and there was no crater underneath the LM in photos because the cohesive lunar dust was pushed horizontally, not vertically. The LM's hypergolic engine was only about 5,000 pounds in the 1/6 gravity of the moon, not a 30,000 pound engine equivalent to a Lear jet, as the conspiracy theorists contend. As you can see, the evidence put forward in this book and others like it are inaccurate. I can disprove many other of their arguments also. So, therefore, the six moon landings from 1969-1972 were definetely not faked, and they were a triumph for the United States and all mankind.
