Recently when I was commenting on a blog I noticed a previous Rainer had made a comment about "Walking on the moon" in a skeptical manner.
Our lunar presence has been questioned by scores of people as a farce.
A fairy tale if you will.
I vaguely remember a movie James Brolin starred in which was based on the theory that our moon landing was a creation of Hollywood.
Those of you who know me, know I am a firm believer in political conspiracy. I believe our government has concealed and covered up the truth about all the major (and minor) assassinations which took place in our country starting with JFK. I believe our government conceals facts which may give credence to alien visitations. Roswell comes to mind and Area 51.
- What I do not believe is that we concocted and perpetrated a farce over our successful moon landings. There were a total of 6 missions which resulted in moon landings. Apollo 11, 12, 14, 15, 16 and 17.
A successful conspiracy requires cooperation from the participants and anyone else who helped orchestrate the occurrence. Given the number of people who would have to be involved in 6 landings, secrecy over the last 42 years seems totally unrealistic. Imagine the number of best selling books and lectures tours this would glean, if a conspiracy actually took place.
Looking at the potential of being an instant millionaire - How long would you remain silent?
- I happened to see a brief article today which shows photos of the surface of the moon. The location is the landing site for one or more of the moon explorations which took place. The photos show the tracks left by the lunar vehicle the Astronauts used to explore the surface.
The photos were taken a few days ago by a craft/camera orbiting the moon. You can read the article and view the series of 3 photos here: MOON TRACKS
I certainly don't trust our government, but I do trust the integrity of the brave explorers who risked their lives to achieve our nations space goals.
Naysayers and believers are welcome to comment.
