Apollo Reality Discussion Thread
« on: July 21, 2015, 01:48:50 PM »
Famed Physicist Shuts Down Moon Landing Conspiracy Theorists In 1 Brilliant Tweet



Monday was the 46th anniversary of the first lunar landing, yet a small fringe still believes the whole thing was a hoax.

According to the conspiracy theory, Neil Armstrong and Buzz Aldrin were on a soundstage instead of the moon. Some even claim that famed filmmaker Stanley Kubrick, who made "2001: A Space Odyssey" the previous year, directed the hoax.

On Monday, British physicist Brian Cox, professor of particle physics at the University of Manchester, had a blunt message for the conspiracy theorists:

Brian Cox
I've said it before and I'll say it again - if you don't think Apollo 11 landed on Moon you are a colossal nob end & should get a new brain


The rest of the article is Buzz Aldrin's pat answers :P

The Russians would NOT "call them out" if the Russians already had a base up there :P

If you have been paying attention to Pegasus :P



Two Sides of the Moon: Our Story of the Cold War Space Race Paperback – February 21, 2006
by Alexei Leonov (Author), David Scott (Author), Tom Hanks (Introduction), Neil Armstrong (Foreword)



"An extraordinary book."
---Arthur C. Clarke

Space was one of the most fiercely fought battlegrounds of the Cold War, the Moon its ultimate beachhead.

In this dual autobiography, Apollo 15 commander David Scott and cosmonaut Alexei Leonov, the first man to ever walk in space, recount their exceptional lives and careers spent on the cutting edge of science and space exploration--and their participation in the greatest technological race ever--to land a man on the Moon.

With each mission fraught with perilous tasks, and each space program touched by tragedy, these parallel tales of adventure and heroism read like a modern-day thriller. Cutting fast between their differing recollections, this book reveals, in a very personal way, the drama of one of the most ambitious contests ever embarked on by man, set against the conflict that once held the world in suspense: the clash between Communism and Western democracy.

Through the men's memoirs, their courage, passion for exploration, and determination to push themselves to the limit, emerge not only through their triumphs but also through their perseverance in times of extraordinary difficulty and danger.

"Two Sides of the Moon is unique among space histories. If you are looking for a balanced, interesting, and personal account of the American and Soviet space programs during the 1960s and 1970s this is it."
---Astronomy magazine
