From those 10K photos there is not even one close-up photo of a man’s face. Not one! All of the so-called astronauts were government actors on a movie set stage.

I scan a lot of negatives (mostly 35mm and 120mm, black and white or color), and these sorts of artifacts are normal even on many new negatives. If a grain of dust lands on the emulsion, it creates scratches when the film is put in a protective sleeve.

The fact that every developed pic looks like this indicates a mistake or alteration in the original film.

By: Graphic Artist http://englishrussia.com/2007/11/06/a-modified-moon-image/#comment-498258 Fri, 08 May 2009 19:50:08 +0000 http://englishrussia.com/?p=1614#comment-498258 Wow… thanks a lot for the link of the original pic. I browsed the containing fodlers, and found an even bigger version ot the photo. And as you might guess – being a graphic artist myself, I could’n resist and ran some tests of my own. Not going to lie to you – am a pro at what I do so… ;)

The marks, being mentioned as cutouts – are not. Why so?!

The simple reason for that being, is the fact, that the faint lines and scratches are uniformly spread over THE WHOLE IMAGE. INCLUDING the sand, the astronaut, the module – the whole image.
Now – whenever photoretouching, regardless doing it chemilally, or digitally – similar techniques are used. A systhematic approach is used. Selections/masks are used. No graphic artist is going to just randomly cut all over the piece, to produce… wahtever the result. A systematic pattern therefore should be possible to be discovered. As well as minor diferences in the consistency of the grey channels, where the cuts were used. On the countrary – what we have here, are randomly placed lines all over the immage, and no fluctuation of greys in the blackness of the sky. Which leads to only one conclusion – SCRATCHES. Like the ones, that always occur on old films. For instance when moving them, or scanning them.

Further still – one of the main arguments of the guys, who claim that the lunar landings never took place – is the black sky. I myself am quite familiar with the fenomenon – whenever one tries to take a night photo of a house with lit windows – the sky becomes pitch black. But having still the digital capabilities at hand, I’ve qite often been able to “pull” some stars out of the blackness.

I’ve always wanted to lay my hands on an original photo from the lunar missions, to actually myself check wether there actually can be found traces of stars in the background. A big 10x again for the link :)
I’ve isolated and selected only the sky. Cleared as much as I could the noise from the film. Enhanced the remaining values. And here’s what I’ve come up with!

http://img11.imageshack.us/img11/2425/gpn2000001131cut.jpg

as you might clearly see – there are significant “spikes” in the grey levels of the sky. Significantly lager, than the uniform film noise prodices. Dunno about you – but to me those look like stars. :)

‘d be glad if any astronomer out there could verify if those are actual constellations.

No living being can survive transit through the radiation belts. The flag cannot ‘wave’ on the moon. The shadows point in different angels because of multiple light sources in the ‘stage’. The stars would have been bright enough against a black sky to be clearly be exposed on film. The ‘dust’ on the moon should have been deep enough to ‘sink’ the lander or astronaut on contact if the moon has been gathering dust out-there for ‘billions of years’. Many more inconsistencies are revealed in the video. We were fooled.

Many of these are also made of silicates, although there are over 4000 known minerals that belong to the group “silicates”, many of these are not made up of the atomic structure that causes them to stick together like wet sand and will in fact be kicked up in the atmosphere and wind has nothing to do with it.

My dad worked for Lockheed Missles and Space. Besides, if we DIDN’T go, the Russians at the time, had tracking equipment they used for their space program,and would have tracked it.

We had a ‘cold war’ at the time.

Anyway, both space programs, (USA and Soviet Union) were much larger in the 60s and 70s. today, we just have a smaller program.

Ps, Great website. I love the picture of everyday Russian life.

There is a new “X Prize” of $20 million for the first private team to send a robotic lander to the moon, and send film back. It is possible the winner could film that part of the Apollo lander still there, as well as the US Flag and footprints, etc.

Or you could just say the X-Prize winner faked it too.

If you project how much money the original moon landing cost into “todays” money, you’ll find it’s quite expensive. NASA has a hard enough time getting continuing budgets for what they do have. Only recently has Bush “promised” money for an eventual Mars mission – although that was part of PR move to deflect some Iraq heat and make himself look better.

I’ve read about this, and the funny thing of this presentation is:
count the time of falling and calculate the acceleration, you will get g=9.8 ==> this was on Earth! On the Moon it would be much less.

I read also that this movie was “lost” after the school children started to discover this.

As I’ve seen there was only waving durnig installtion of flag – natural.
The “impressed a characteristic structure on flag surface” could be simply effect of crushing (when it was packed for transportation).

The basic knowledge about photography making will give you answer on such questions. There’s no photo-carrier which can register objects which differs milions times in the intensity of light.

An “atmosphere” on the Moon is thousends milions (or bilions) times laxer then a true atmoshere as that one on the Earth or that one on the Mars (which is only about 100 times lower pressure then on the Earth).

So on the Moon there isn’t atmosphere becouse there isn’t any atmosphere phenomenons as wind, thunder, convection or similiar.
Only high quality measurment devices can detect for a period of time some molecules of helium, argon or nitrogen over Moon surface.

The ‘waving’ of the flag is other topic. The flag could not rather be made from cotton or poliester (such materials could be destroyed by the sunshine (lack of suppressing atmosphere) in few houres or miunutes.
If the flag is from metal foil, so the vawing is an effect of weak supperssing of initial vibrations.
Maybe besides the waving of the flag coused by vibrations there was impressed a characteristic structure on the flag surface and it still looks like vawing.

He was remotely controlled. The first person in space was a Belgian farmer who got a bit carried away when launching his new-years eve fireworks and launched his whole farm including himself into orbit. It is still ther, now being used [after some alterations] as the ISS.

Belgians are modest people so they kept it a secret.

So possibly someone working with photos was not careful enough and slightly mechanically damaged the surface. Like – was drawing or cutting something on a paper put on top of the photo or something like that.

During scanning such damage could be registered due to slightly different reflection of light, while still remain invisible to human eye without special processing.

This could be one reason to explain similar effect.

they did not have our computers. so they often had to improve visual quality of the images with the means they had available – mechanical, chemical etc.

you really should see some Soviet photos of the same period, specially, if they were printed in the press. :)

much of the printed media was of really ugly quality. using retouching techniques popular at the beginning of the century.

I used to read “Modelist-Konstruktor” magazine when I was a kid back in eighties. I often sucked big time when it came to colour images. Colour bleeding, photos retouched with brush and ink so heavily that you could not see the original photo underneath etc.

(1) In the film shots you can see the astronauts rotating the flagpole as they push it into the ground. This rotation causes the flag to wave backwards and forwards. In a couple of shots, the flag continues to move after the astronaut has left the frame.

(2) In still photos such as the one below, the flag appears to be fluttering but it is not. The flag is stationary – it is simply wrinkled. This wrinkling was caused by the way the flag was packaged for flight. You can actually see this flag in other photos with exactly the same wrinkle pattern – proving that it is not moving at all.

In some missions there was an additional factor – the astronauts could not fully extend the horizontal crossbar (at the top of the flag). This further exaggerated the wrinkle effect.

“mistakes and inconsistencies in the official story.” The official story is that American astronauts landed on the moon. So far I’ve seen nothing to disprove any or all of that story.
