Moon Landings Faked? Filmmaker Says Not!

Moon Landings Faked? Filmmaker Says Not!
this is why the

moon

hoax would have been impossible take one did people go to the

moon

in 1969 I'm not totally sure I wasn't on the

moon

then did they

faked

going to the

moon

no I'm pretty sure they didn't because they couldn't some people say that in 1969 people were incapable of sending a man to the

moon

but that they were capable of staging the whole thing in a TV studio in fact the opposite is true by the late 1960s they did have the technical ability not to mention the
moon landings faked filmmaker says not
requisite madness to send three guys to the

moon

and back they did not have the technology to fake it on video now please understand I'm not saying this to defend the honor of the United States the US government lies all the time about all kinds of things and if they haven't lied to you today maybe they haven't had coffee yet so it's easy to believe the Apollo program is a lie too especially if you weren't alive then and if you don't know much about the technology
profiles of the day you see the later you were born the more all powerful movie magic seems nowadays it would be very easy to fake the

moon

landing and we seem to have forgotten how to do it for real back then it was the other way around really ever since the 1920s engineers were trying to improve liquid-fueled rockets and their guidance systems they wanted to go to outer space the people who were paying for it wanted better bombs by 1943 very firm brows people already had a fully functional
suborbital rocket called the aggregate fear later known as the v2 after the war the German rocket scientists went to work for to rival superpowers who then went to insane lengths to outdo each other on the world stage it was a global Dick Ragan contest on a scale never before seen in human history it's fair to say that technology growth in the Cold War was mostly a competition in aerospace rocketry and weapons science that was the kind of engineering people strove to excel in and by the
mid-60s limited space travel was a possibility I think meanwhile film technology had gotten wider and television was still busy trying to be in color now here's where the stories diverged in one version the Americans waste 20 billion dollars to send three guys to the

moon

plant the plaque that

says

we came in peace for all mankind and then go home to bomb Cambodia in the more tantalizing version NASA at some point realizes they just can't so to avoid humiliation they hire Stanley Kubrick
to produce and directing landing telecasts you know he did such a great job of 2001 years later once the Apollo astronauts are starting to collect Medicare some people get a lot of attention by pointing out flaws in the photographic evidence from Apollo when you listen to them they seem not to know very much about photography or video or lighting or even perspective and I think they're hoping you don't either so we should have seen stars in the sky no we shouldn't the camera was set
to expose for broad daylight if they were exposing for stars then this picture would have looked more like this hmm flags waving in the breeze no it isn't it's wiggling in the vacuum after they let it go and the shadows diverge unrealistically across the landscape no they don't go outside sometime and see how shadows work they obviously use multiple light sources in this picture right no they obviously didn't I've been shooting in the studio for about 30 years now I know what
moon landings faked filmmaker says not
to look for when you shine two lights at something you get two shadows so this would have looked more like this but it doesn't because this stuff was shot with a single light source and if that light was anywhere near the action you would have seen a fall-off in brightness across the terrain you don't because the light source was 150 million kilometers away too far away for the inverse-square law to make a difference get it etc etc blah blah blah the thing is all these discussions are
ignoring one simple point in 1969 it was not yet possible technically to fake what we saw on TV why are people missing this I think maybe they forget how primitive video was in 1969 I mean it was an amazing achievement in electronics but there was a lot they couldn't do let me try to explain that the pivotal claim for the Apollo hoax theory without which it all falls apart is that what we saw on TV was slow-motion footage of astronauts running around in a film studio because if it was a slow
motion it couldn't have happened on earth right let's talk about how slow motion works in film and video there are two ways to make motion slow one is you shoot it at normal speed and play it back slow the other is you shoot it fast and play it back normal the second way is called overcranking it looks smoother and more realistic because you're sampling natural motion at a higher frame rate but that means we would have had to shoot it on film using high-speed film cameras right why
because in 1969 there were no high-speed video cameras yet the electronics just weren't there some people did have a magnetic disc recorder that could capture normal speed video and play it back slow they used it for sports replace it could record up to 30 seconds playback at 10 FPS and you've got a whopping 90 seconds of slow-mo I'm sticking with 10 frames per second because that was the video frame rate for Apollo 11 they had a non-interlaced slow scan TV camera specially made for
them by westinghouse all the later missions were using regular NTSC cameras running at 2997 fps that would be three times harder to fake I'm trying to make this easy keep in mind that when people today watch documentaries about the Apollo missions they're looking at the highlights they're looking at you know short clips cut together the short clips are much easier to fake but in July 1969 600 million people including me we're all staring at a continuous lunar telecast that went
on for a long time it's actually pretty boring sometimes at 16 minutes into the EBA they turn on the video camera four minutes later you get your one small step fan then Aldrin climbs out and they move the camera onto a tripod and proceeded to do all their

moon

walking flag planting photo snapping and rock picking then Armstrong climbs back up into the lander and it's over by which time the video camera has been running for 43 minutes so if we're faking this with electronic slow-mo at
moon landings faked filmmaker says not
1/3 speed we only need to record about 47 minutes of continuous live-action video well that's a lot more than that Ampex disk recorder could hold but NASA is special maybe they have a big disk recorder right in 1969 okay how much bigger 95 times bigger I don't know man I mean government agencies are powerful but they're not God then again they are NASA maybe they did have some special way to over cranked video in 1969 for an hour and a half maybe they have some top-secret high-speed
electronics that the rest of the world never knew about oh wait a minute no you guys said that the navigation computers were too slow I guess we can't have it both ways I mean it can't be fast and slow at the same time right wouldn't it be easier to shoot this on film I mean in 1969 we already knew how to over cranked film for Apollo 11 we only need to shoot 30 fps and play it back at 10 okay let's try that I'd recommend you shoot on thirty five-millimeter to minimize the
shown brain that's what Kubrick would have done now let's see normal 35 millimeter runs at 90 feet per minute but since we're shooting at 30fps there will be 112 and a half feet per minute we need 47 minutes of original film so that's about 5,300 feet and of course there's no such thing as a film magazine that big Volkswagen but if you shoot thousand foot loads that's about that big then you can do it in five mags I mean I can do this you don't want to see the splice
marks where you put the reels together because then everybody would know it was a fake and remember we're shooting for TV so it's one three three aspect ratio and not one eighty five so that means you have to do a and B rolls you have to split cut the negative into a and B rolls and print them onto a fifty three hundred foot fine grained inter positive then cut an answer print in the film lab and when you're done make sure everybody that works in the film lab dies mysteriously in a
car crash now now you just need to find a custom-designed tella city that can transfer your fifty three hundred foot answer print to video or ten frames per second pin registered of course how hard can that be of course you need to be absolutely certain that in all that splicing and printing and transferring none of the most common film artifacts have gotten onto your giant print no bass scratches no emulsion flakes no gate we've no brain and not one single fleck of dust because any one of
those things will instantly betray that this is a hoax okay so you do that and then you do it again for five more lunar emissions only those later missions you have to play back a 30fps meaning you have to shoot it like 60fps twice the torque twice as many splices to keep clean twice as much of a chance that the film's going to break in the camera you think maybe it would be easier to just go to the

moon

I don't really know if that's possible like I said it wasn't on the

moon

in
1969 and neither were you I can tell you that in 1969 it was not possible technically to fake what we saw on TV sorry Kubrick a no Kubrick and why does any of this matter well my concern is with the ultimate fate of knowing of seeing the difference between what you can know and what you wish for because that's what puts the sapiens and Homo sapiens without that you're just another homo the urge to believe drives people to trade in part of their soul in exchange for the comfort of being a
rebel ok but that step from knowing that you've been lied to to believing that everything else is a lie is a big step once you're forced to hypothesize whole new technologies to keep your conspiracy possible then you've stepped over into the realm of magic it demands a deep and abiding faith in things you can never know it's like you need to cling to your belief system with all your might against the overwhelming evidence of your own rational mind and some people do what's
dangerous about that is that it blinds you to the real conspiracies that authorities are perpetrating on you right now as we speak things that are a lot more important than whether some guys went to the

moon

if I I mean I'm not America but if I were I would much rather have you be questioning Apollo 11 and not questioning the Patriot Act the Iraq war the financial industry bailouts and the right to indefinite military detention without charge those things are real thank you for watching
excellent my check came from NASA you
