Commander Neil Armstrong Still Peddling NASA's Lie !!!
Of all conspiratorial issues, the Moon Landing looms in the top most tier.

What is almost as big a curiosity, as the mystery involving the Luna Landing, is why Neil Armstrong never bothered to give a serious-in depth account of his adventure of a lifetime?

Most Americans can account for their whereabouts during that fateful day-as we all basically, imagined ourselves there with the Apollo 11 Crew (living the moment with them via TV.) Point being, the Apollo 11 Crew, especially, it's Commander, Neil Armstrong, owes the citizenry a better account of this momentous moment in history-it's not his to hide!

Yet, the selfish bastard stills glosses over any account he might give of that day-almost as if he's reading from a NASA broadcasting prompt. Which, long-story short, feeds into the conspiracy-surely, he's hiding something! And, whatever you do don't bother asking his partner-in-crime, Aldrin-unless you're a glutton for punishment (Buzz's patented response, if pressured on the moon landing issue, is to punch people!)

So, all things considered, we can continue our speculation-the event is still extremely suspect. Personally, I'm not buying what they're selling-not for one minute. How about you; do you think the Moon Landing is a sham?

And, BTW-this article is little more than a fluff-piece! Guess Armstrong was feeling guilty and considered being a bit more forthright on the subject but "chickened" out in the end and went "scripted" instead!

Neil Armstrong Talks About The First Moon Walk

[link to www.npr.org]

Well, this doesn't happen every day.

In yesterday's post, I talked about Neil Armstrong and Buzz Aldrin's walk across the lunar surface back in 1969 and wondered, how come they walked such a modest distance? Less than a hundred yards from their lander?

Today Neil Armstrong wrote in to say, here are the reasons:

* It was really, really hot on the moon, 200 degrees Fahrenheit. We needed protection.

* We were wearing new-fangled, water-cooled uniforms and didn't know how long the coolant would last.

* We didn't know how far we could go in our space suits.

* NASA wanted us to conduct our experiments in front of a fixed camera.

* We [meaning Neil] cheated just a little, and very briefly bounded off to take pictures of some interesting bedrock.

But basically, he says, we were part of a team and we were team players on a perilous, one-of-a-kind journey. Improvisation was not really an option.


But, reading between the lines, I kinda think he wanted to do more, go further. Anyway, read for yourself:

Dear Mr. Krulwich

I was delighted to read your December 7 column on the the Apollo 11 lunar surface traverses, The NASA maps do accurately portray the locations of the pathways used to complete the myriad of tasks we were assigned. And, although I have not checked, I believe the comparison with the size of athletic fields is reasonably accurate.

You asked: “Who knew?"

The answer to that question is: Just about anyone who had any interest in learning the answer. The plan for the lunar surface work was widely distributed and we even did a full dress rehearsal for the press at the NASA Johnson Space Center.

It is true that we were cautious in our planning. There were many uncertainties about how well our Lunar module systems and our Pressure suit and backpack would match the engineering predictions in the hostile lunar environment.

We were operating in a near perfect vacuum with the temperature well above 200 degrees Fahrenheit with the local gravity only one sixth that of Earth. That combination cannot be duplicated here on Earth, but we tried as best we could to test our equipment for those conditions.

For example, because normal air conditioning is inadequate for lunar conditions, we were required to use cold water to cool the interior of our suits. We did not have any data to tell us how long the small water tank in our backpacks would suffice. NASA officials limited our surface working time to 2 and 3/4 hours on that first surface exploration to assure that we would not expire of hyperthermia. After returning to and repressurizing the Lunar Module, we were able to drain and measure the remaining water in the backpacks to confirm the predicted.

There was great uncertainty about how well we would be able to walk in our cumbersome pressurized suit. My colleague demonstrated a variety of techniques in view of the television camera that I had installed in a position predetermined to be in the optimum spot for coverage of all of our activities.

Preflight planners wanted us to stay in TV range so that they could learn from our results how they could best plan for future missions. I candidly admit that I knowingly and deliberately left the planned working area out of TV coverage to examine and photograph the interior crater walls for possible bedrock exposure or other useful information. I felt the potential gain was worth the risk.

It is true that we would have liked to stay on the surface longer and traveled further away from the Lunar Module and the television camera. But we had a number of experiments to install, samples to document and collect, and photographs to take. The time available was fully allocated and we were working diligently to complete our assigned tasks. The Lunar Laser Ranging Retroreflector we installed is still in use today in a variety of scientific experiments.

I have tried to give a small insight into your question “Who knew?”

I hope it is helpful.

Sincerely,

Neil Armstrong

So remember, when you're feeling very small and insecure,
How amazingly unlikely is your birth,
And pray that there's intelligent life somewhere up in space,
'Cause there's bugger all down here on Earth.

Maybe but integrity should eventually "kick-in!"

I don't care how big the secret is-there comes a time when the TRUTH has to come out. Sometimes, it's like vomiting from an illness. After-wards, there is relief. It may hurt and it might stink but it has to get out!

Anyway, Armstrong is a genius, as such, he understands and appreciates integrity and the TRUTH-he KNOWS the LIE is WRONG!

NO SYMPATHY!

I wonder if that response was even written by Armstrong. Could have been ghost-written by a NASA (Never A Straight Answer) employee. Doesn't sound like Armstrong's words.

Agreed-he's faded to the background on this from the very beginning.

No doubt, his way of reserving what shred of integrity he has left from the whole thing-unfortunately, for him, he's only kidding himself!

Anything save the
TRUTH is simply COOPERATION on his part.

So . . . would 1/6 the gravity of earth mean they only needed a 50' (versus the 300' Saturn V) rocket WORTH OF PROPELLANT to propel them off the moon into orbit, not to mention enough to travel 250,000 miles back to earth?

Funny, I don't remember seeing a 50' tall tank of propellant.
