50 years ago…we did not put men on the moon

Today marks the 50th anniversary of the United States’ allegedly putting men on the moon.  I used to believe this.  I even posted about it last year, calling it the “pinnacle of our achievement” as a species.  This may upset some.  We’ve been told this our whole lives.  It was a point of American pride.  The greatest achievement of humankind and done by our own country!  But I think this is a good opener into exploring some of the lies of our reality to at least open up the possibility that maybe things aren’t as they seem.  And it will also show how we all get duped at some time or another.  Even if it “ruins” something from your childhood, wouldn’t you rather know the truth than live blissfully ignorant?

They are doing a much better job of taking down videos with moon landing conspiracy ties but you can still find some of them out there.  There is an exorbitant amount of information out there to support the claim that we didn’t land Apollo astronauts on the moon, but we will pare it down to two.  These two alone, with direct quotes from NASA engineers and employees, should be enough on their own.  Forget about all the photographic evidence, Kubrick filming theories, or anything else, and ask yourself if these two statements sound believable on any level, both the official responses from NASA.

Statement 1: All of the telemetry data, which is all of the information from the spacecraft to measure the journey to and from the moon, ALL of it, was lost.

Statement 2: The technology needed to get humans to go safely through the Van Allen radiation belt was destroyed, and the technology is too difficult to recreate which is why we haven’t gone back since and why we currently cannot go back right this second even if we wanted to.

Now, just let both of those statements sink in.  We lost all of the data to the most important human achievement in mankind.  And oh by the way the best piece of evidence to prove we went to the moon.  Does that sound believable to you?  Lost both the footage and all the telemetry data?!  Think about all the historical artifacts we keep around.  You think maybe they would’ve been a little more careful with this, if it had existed in the first place?  Again, don’t take my word for it.  Search for yourselves.  Watch the videos.  Trust your instincts.  They’re conveniently saying now that an intern actually sold it for $218 decades ago and could now sell for $2 million!  It must be true, CNN is reporting it.  How convenient this story came out just two weeks from the 50th anniversary.  C’mon.

Now, can you name any other example in human history where we had a piece of technology that we destroyed for :::reasons::: and it was so complicated we could not recreate it?  Weren’t we told the computing power in our smart phones was greater than the technology used to put men on the Moon?  But you’re telling me there was one piece that’s so crazy difficult to recreate (why did we destroy it again?) that we STILL haven’t been able to recreate it?  And what’s the new timetable for the Moon?  2024?  It’s insulting to hear them use that as reasoning they expect anyone to believe.

There are so many other holes in the Moon story, but the aim of posts like this is to pique your interest and get you to research it further.  The photography aspect, the inconsistency in the astronaut stories, all of it make the claim of the moon landing dubious.  And why hasn’t any other country gone back?  You cannot possibly believe the claims that there’s no point to go back.  That would be a billion dollar industry.  Why not leave a camera there?  If they allegedly somehow managed to beam back the moon landing footage live, with technology from 1969, why not leave one there now and point it at the Earth?  And how exactly did they manage to beam that data back to Earth live when I can’t even get a cell phone signal in the middle of Wyoming?  It didn’t really look like the equipment they brought to the Moon would have the power for that, or the power source for that.  But hey, what do we know?  Maybe they have answers to all of the above holes, but even still, ask yourself if those first two statements make any sense on any level.

There are a lot of reasons why they would lie about landing on the Moon.  The space race, trying to bankrupt the USSR, fulfilling JFKs promise, etc etc are all possible reasons.  Maybe they all contributed.  Maybe NASA has ulterior motives?  Maybe it is to take away from the glory of God.  When you take away from the awe and wonder of the heavens and His creation you can start to see how some may not look up and think of God’s glory anymore.  Maybe it is just one of many ways to chip away at that.  To blind us in one of many ways.

And you may be asking about the astronauts and their stories.  Maybe they were lied to and their families’ lives were threatened, which is why they kept quiet.  It really makes you wonder about Gus Grissom’s death and whether it really was an accident, given how vocal he was against the program.  Imagine how hard it would be for those astronauts still living to keep this lie up.  Imagine having that eat you up inside and be heralded as a hero for decades.  Maybe being told to lie for some “greater good”.  It wouldn’t be hard to see how after living with that kind of guilt for decades the truth maybe could just slip out…

China lands a probe on the far side of the Moon

Via space.com:

Humanity just planted its flag on the far side of the moon.

China’s robotic Chang’e 4 mission touched down on the floor of the 115-mile-wide (186 kilometers) Von Kármán Crater Wednesday night (Jan. 2), pulling off the first-ever soft landing on the mysterious lunar far side.

Chang’e 4 will perform a variety of science work over the coming months, potentially helping scientists better understand the structure, formation and evolution of Earth’s natural satellite. But the symbolic pull of the mission will resonate more with the masses: The list of unexplored locales in our solar system just got a little shorter. [Watch: China’s Historic Landing on the Moon’s Far Side!]

Congrats to China.  Hopefully this lights a fire under us to do the same.  Though it seems like we’re more focused on manned flight to the Moon with private partnerships.  Via nasa.gov:

NASA Seeks US Partners to Develop Reusable Systems to Land Astronauts on Moon

As the next major step to return astronauts to the Moon under Space Policy Directive-1, NASA announced plans on Dec. 13 to work with American companies to design and develop new reusable systems for astronauts to land on the lunar surface. The agency is planning to test new human-class landers on the Moon beginning in 2024, with the goal of sending crew to the surface in 2028.

Through upcoming multi-phased lunar exploration partnerships, NASA will ask American companies to study the best approach to landing astronauts on the Moon and start the development as quickly as possible with current and future anticipated technologies.

“Building on our model in low-Earth orbit, we’ll expand our partnerships with industry and other nations to explore the Moon and advance our missions to farther destinations such as Mars, with America leading the way,” said NASA Administrator Jim Bridenstine. “When we send astronauts to the surface of the Moon in the next decade, it will be in a sustainable fashion.”

You’d think it would take us less than 10 years to develop the technology to land on the Moon if we had been there 50 years ago, right?  Why are we “building on our model in low-Earth orbit” if we should already have a model of actually having gone to the Moon?  The chief problem to getting a crew there and back still seems to be the Van Allen radiation belt, which we allegedly went through 50 years ago.  Did you know that NASA’s official position is that we had the technology, but we destroyed it, and it’s too difficult to build it back up again?  Seriously.

I’ll be making a much more comprehensive post on this in the near future, but assuming we went already this whole timeline seems unfortunately long.  The notion that there was no point in going back to the Moon after the initial Moon landings is pure silliness.

Asteroids abound

It’s helpful to step away from some of the problems we’re dealing with on Earth and think BIG picture now and then.  NASA’s Jet Propulsion Lab released this cool little video a few days ago about all known asteroids in the solar system.  As our technology gets better these become more detectable.  Obviously the goal is to detect a big one far enough in advance to do something about it.  Some large ones are sometimes only detected very late that whiz by Earth rather close.  Yet another reason we need to focus longer term on projects for life on new heavenly bodies.

In other asteroid news, China is planning a mission to find suitable asteroids to hunt and capture for mining.  This is very cool future game changing stuff.  Their goal is eventually to put it into an orbit around the Moon and mine the valuable metals and minerals.

Nasa announced a plan earlier this year to send two spacecraft to asteroids in 2021 and 2023.

The later mission will explore the asteroid 16 Psyche, which is 210km wide and probably a remnant from the core of an ancient planet no longer in existence.

The Chinese programme, however, is much more ambitious.

The plan is to capture an asteroid by landing and anchor a spacecraft on its surface, fire up multiple rocket boosters and project it into the orbit of the moon.

This is the kind of competition we need to propel us forward.  This is good for everyone.
