Comment on Apollo Moon Landing Hoax – Scientific Evidence by jfb.

The blueprints *weren’t* destroyed; they’re on file at the Marshall Space Flight Center in Huntsville, AL. Not that it matters; we couldn’t build the Saturn V today if we wanted to, because most of the technology it used is hopelessly obsolete and no longer manufactured. A clean-sheet design would be quicker and *probably* cheaper.

And no, the SLS is not a clean-sheet design; the SLS is a jobs program designed to keep the legacy Shuttle hardware manufacturing sector employed, so it uses a lot of recycled Shuttle technology (the SRBs, the RS-25 engines, etc.). The Falcon family of rockets from SpaceX would count as a clean-sheet design (and they’re *incredibly* cheap compared to rockets in the same class), but even the Falcon Heavy couldn’t support a lunar mission, at least not with a single launch.

If SpaceX ever winds up building the methalox BFR thrustmonster, however, *that* could support a manned lunar mission pretty easily (after all, its supposed to send people to frickin’ Mars, the Moon’s like around the corner by comparison). And it will still probably be cheaper than SLS.

I don’t know what you mean about “first generation photographic evidence” – you mean the slides and negatives? AFAIK, those are still intact.

Now let me prove to NASA how stupid they are.

Ah, proof. Would that more people understood what constituted “proof”. “You can’t explain that” isn’t proof, especially when, yes, we can explain it.

Who panned the camera?

His name was Ed Fendell, a controller in Houston in charge the remotely-controlled camera on the LRV.

Yes, he had to take the signal delay into account – he had to anticipate the liftoff and rate of ascent. …
