Yeah the Moon landings were all faked ... They managed to keep thousands of people quiet for over 40 years.

Will some of you at least do your homework before chiming in?

Read a few of the former post, look at some of the reasons given...

Don't chime in until you can explain to me what the Van Allen radiation belt is...

And then after learning what it is, tell me how you think man or any living orginism, can with stand the radioactive particles in this belt and in deep space...

Take time to read, and understand why others may feel a certain way...if we constantly leap frog each others points or issues without addressing them, than the conversation goes nowhere and fails to educate...

Look up Van Allen radiation belt...

Then you'll be better able to carry on this conversation...I linked it on post 19...

Once you've addressed that, then we can move on to next point of skepticism, if there is any...

I think I can say with some assurance that most of us here have seen that conspiracy video shown on TV that the US faked the moon landings.

You should be commended for having memorized it almost word for word.

With the poll sitting at 100% that mankind did land on the Moon it's kinda hard to take you seriously, yaknow?

Default We went..

And never went back. There are many stories they found "Structures" that did not appear natural. Not that far fetched. Never thought we were alone in this vast universe. Maybe ancient advanced explorers were there first.

Yet you all continue to leap frog the Van Allen radiation belt delima...

Until you address that...the conversation can't go forward...

Stop leap frogging and address my issues...

Here's some informative reading on the Van Allen Belts that pertains to your questions.

Clavius: Environment - radiation and the van allen belts

I'll go ahead and quote a good passage:

Quote:
(Claim) - The Van Allen belts are full of deadly radiation, and anyone passing through them would be fried.

(Answer) - Needless to say this is a very simplistic statement. Yes, there is deadly radiation in the Van Allen belts, but the nature of that radiation was known to the Apollo engineers and they were able to make suitable preparations. The principle danger of the Van Allen belts is high-energy protons, which are not that difficult to shield against. And the Apollo navigators plotted a course through the thinnest parts of the belts and arranged for the spacecraft to pass through them quickly, limiting the exposure.

The Van Allen belts span only about forty degrees of earth's latitude -- twenty degrees above and below the magnetic equator. The diagrams of Apollo's translunar trajectory printed in various press releases are not entirely accurate. They tend to show only a two-dimensional version of the actual trajectory. The actual trajectory was three-dimensional. The highly technical reports of Apollo, accessible to but not generally understood by the public, give the three-dimensional details of the translunar trajectory.

Each mission flew a slightly different trajectory in order to access its landing site, but the orbital inclination of the translunar coast trajectory was always in the neighborhood of 30. Stated another way, the geometric plane containing the translunar trajectory was inclined to the earth's equator by about 30. A spacecraft following that trajectory would bypass all but the edges of the Van Allen belts.

This is not to dispute that passage through the Van Allen belts would be dangerous. But NASA conducted a series of experiments designed to investigate the nature of the Van Allen belts, culminating in the repeated traversal of the Southern Atlantic Magnetic Anomaly (an intense, low-hanging patch of Van Allen belt) by the Gemini 10 astronauts.

Yaknow, a quick search using any of the popular engines would have yielded the fact that "the deadly Van Allen radiation belt" was debunked decades ago.

They did harp on that quite a bit in that moon conspiracy TV show didn't they?

I'll go ahead and quote a good passage:
Ok...well at least you didn't leap frog the issue...now I will do further research or study to see the kind of radiation levels that are in space, and how prolonged exposure to these levels effect human flesh or health...

I mean people are paranoyed about barely walking through a airport x-ray machine, and say how even low levels of x-ray machine gamma rays can damage a fetus...let alone the hostile radio active enviornment of space with postively charged particles everywhere...

And if these particles can travel through earth...in sure they can penitrate the thin wall of a spacecraft....

I've learned the shuttles were kept in a relatively low orbat, well below the radiation belts, where the magnetic field of the earth seems to trap these particles...has been trapping them for however many years, which explains the high density or level of these particles in the belt...

Like a filter of sorts...filters have a high level of contaminants, cause they stop and trap them...

I need to know, and will try to find out, if any of the former astronauts, had bouts with cancer after such long exposer to radiation...when people living on earth next to power lines seem to have a high rate, yet are exposed to far lower levels than an astronaut venturing to the moon...

That's too simple though...of course those who's lives and reputation are staked on the mission are going to say, do, whatever to validate the missions...

That's a given....

I wouldn't expect anything less from them...after all, billions, possibly trillions of dollars of 'budget' money is at stake here...

So of course they have to convince you that the Van Allen belts could be circumvented....

I'm learning real fast that science is a business...grants, funding, money ect ect...

But none the less...when I get back, I'll do some more research and reading...
