Why are so many so desperate to prove the moon landings false?
It honestly makes no sense to me.

In fact, it does make a lot of sense.
NASA is collecting not millions, but billions of dollars in funding from the US gov.(Tax payer money) far a space program.
So I think most of the people concerned with the matter are US tax payers.

Re: Moon Hoax - Rockets CANNOT work in space
Okay, here's my simple explanation of how rockets work in space. Everyone seems to be in agreement that Newton's 3rd law is valid. When rocket fuel is burned, it is accelerated out of the nozzle. That acceleration must have an opposite, and equal, reaction. Presto, we have rocket propulsion in the vacuum of space.
 Quoting: Anonymous Coward 11252678


This equation is incomplete, the vacuum acts on the expanding propellant.

that works fine on earth, think about how that works fine on earth then you will see why it doesn't work in the vacuum of space.

Newton's third law does work in space, but where one of the opposite forces is in the form of an expanding gas in order to push the rocket IN A VACUUM, Newton's law is misapplied.

 Quoting: cp06866



This is where you and the OP keep running up against a brick wall, over and over and over again.

The vacuum doesn't come into play here at all. What is at the other end of the rocket nozzle is irrelevant. ALL of the physics involved in this propulsion are occurring inside the tank, and within the nozzle. The propulsion isn't being generated by the gas in the nozzle pushing against something outside the nozzle.

The propulsion is being generated by the bottleneck of where the nozzle meets the tank. The gas inside the tank is trying to go everywhere. Imagine little red arrows indicating direction of force, and inside the tank those little red arrows are all over the place, pointing in all directions. But they can't go anywhere, because it's a closed container. One of those arrows has found a way out, and points in the direction of the nozzle. YAY, it's a big race, last one out of the tank is a rotten egg. The 'push' that you keep looking for, is happening where the high amount of pressure at the entrance to the nozzle is fiercely pushing all the little gas people down the nozzle.

That's where the 'push' is happening. What is at the end of the nozzle where the gas is escaping into the vacuum has *nothing to do with the entire process*.

Re: Moon Hoax - Rockets CANNOT work in space
one of the biggest hoaxes of all time!

rocket propulsion cannot work in space.

you get tricked by being told about newtons third law and how the propellant pushes against the body so therefore (equal opposite) has to push the rocket.

but newtons third law ironically proves this to be false if viewed from the other way round, the propellant cannot push against a vacuum (zero force) so in turn (equal and opposite) applies zero force to the rocket/vehicle itself.


can anyone find me a video of a rocket, firecracker or something similar creating force in a vacuum?

I can haz rockets flying in space.
Hahaha, still a few tards that didn't get it so I'll try again. Rocket fuel haz mass. What would happen if that fuel were in a bottle and oxidized? It would expand, produce heat and be accelerated out of the opening. The bottle would be propelled in the opposite direction of the fuel's accelerated mass. This works in a vacuum too.

Anyone gonna man up and admit they've seen the light? It's an uncommon man that will admit he was wrong. Naw, just a bunch of scared mice here on GLP Hahahah

NO, this cannot work in a vacuum. You just ignored the effects that the vacuum would have on the situation, such as an expanding fuel/gas. This is bogus science.

Well excuse me, or maybe excuse you. But I have to repeat myself and add that I never agreed that the fuel is pushing against anything. However if you followed my post you would see I have covered what you tried to explain. And at this point it's ridiculous to explain again.
The concept that you people have that the vacuum is not causing any effect on the equation of an expanding gas being harnessed to thrust a craft forward is BOGUS SCIENCE!

On earth the outside will be of lesser pressure than the inside of the rocket.
In the vacuum of space, there is a vacuum (I like to say negative pressure), which will aid (I don't like to say suck) the expansion of these gases preventing thrust. kapiche!

Re: Moon Hoax - Rockets CANNOT work in space
why do you think that we havn't been further out than 400 mile or so?


why so much fuel is used just to get into orbit?


clue: air gets thinner.
 Quoting: Anonymous Coward 11057845


clue: go back to 7th grade physics.

The reason it takes so much fuel to get into orbit is that the rocket must reach escape velocity relative to the weight of the rocket in order to escape Earth's gravitational pull. It takes a LOT of power to do that... and fuel itself is heavy and takes up a great deal of volume.
 Quoting: Roentgen®


what? and earths gravity field suddenly stops once you break out of orbit?
 Quoting: Anonymous Coward 11057845


no you fucking dolt.

But the closer you are to center mass of a large object... the stronger the gravitational pull.

Hence the reason that some companies will bring satellites down to lower orbits from a higher orbit... the lower orbit will eventually drag the satellite into the atmosphere where it will (ideally) burn up. In a higher orbit the gravitational pull isn't as strong and the satellite is able to orbit the Earth without it's orbit decaying.

By your reasoning the fucking moon would be sitting on the face of our planet because the gravitational pull is just as strong there as it is on the face of the planet.
 Quoting: Roentgen®


that is incorrect. Lower orbit makes the object to get friction with more dense atmosphere layers, hence reducing the speed and reducing the momentum

 Quoting: Roentgen®


Again with the orbit fail.

The reason why the moon isn't sitting on the face of the planet, is because of the speed at which it's traveling. In relation to the earth, it is climbing away at an angle, but since it is moving around a sphere, it's continuously being pulled back towards the sphere. If it goes at the exact right speed, it reaches a balance where it is escaping at an angle at the same rate at which it's path is being re-adjusted back towards the sphere.

It is simply an object in motion through space, who's direction of motion is constantly being adjusted by a sphere.

You are right in that the counter-pressure of atmosphere makes a rocket motor less efficient there. It also requires a different design; it is difficult to design a single motor that is at maximum efficiency both in and out of the atmosphere.

That said, it is counter-intuitive, but due to the supersonic velocity of the exiting gas, pressure at the nozzle can actually be (and is even designed to be) less than ambient.

After you have recovered your balance you will me moving slowly backwards.
Why? You gave the ball some momentum in some direction. That momentum has to come from somewhere. It comes from you the thrower. That is why you are now moving slowly in the opposite direction of where you threw the ball.

Read carefully, I don't want you to miss this.

In the universe/omniverse there can never be a place where there is no atmosphere and no vacuum, it's has to be one of the two.

First to begin, let me correct your comment.
1) We are dealing in space not earth.
2) There is a vacuum not an atmosphere.
3) The rocket is not throwing a heavy ball anywhere, it is exhausting burnt fuel in the form of an expanding gas.

So we go on, the expanding gas is needed as a pressurised from of propellant in order to propel the rocket forward as it tries to relieve pressure by flowing through a designed nozzle (and the gas is not forced out in the same essences as anybody throwing a heavy ball). Because the section of the chamber facing the rocket is still subjected to pressure, it will force the rocket forward.

A vacuum however, will aid (I don't like to say suck) the gas in it's escape out of the chamber and increase expansion when gases exit the chamber. This will rob the engine of force needed to thrust the rocket forward. Hence this concept will not work in the vacuum of space.

Think of a balloon full of air in space. When you let it go, will it go anywhere? Yes. The escaping, high-velocity air pushes against the slower, turbulent air already released. Similarly, a rocket is pushing off of, or thrusts against it's own exhaust, if you will. Make sense?

Re: Moon Hoax - Rockets CANNOT work in space
Okay, here's my simple explanation of how rockets work in space. Everyone seems to be in agreement that Newton's 3rd law is valid. When rocket fuel is burned, it is accelerated out of the nozzle. That acceleration must have an opposite, and equal, reaction. Presto, we have rocket propulsion in the vacuum of space.

I can haz rockets flying in space.
Hahaha, still a few tards that didn't get it so I'll try again. Rocket fuel haz mass. What would happen if that fuel were in a bottle and oxidized? It would expand, produce heat and be accelerated out of the opening. The bottle would be propelled in the opposite direction of the fuel's accelerated mass. This works in a vacuum too.

Anyone gonna man up and admit they've seen the light? It's an uncommon man that will admit he was wrong. Naw, just a bunch of scared mice here on GLP Hahahah

NO, this cannot work in a vacuum. You just ignored the effects that the vacuum would have on the situation, such as an expanding fuel/gas. This is bogus science.

My goodness, I really wanna understand what you're trying to say here but can't quite get my head around it. You've gotta be kidding, right? That's rhetorical 'cause I know you're not. And if you are kidding, nice troll Hahaha.
