      …I think you may be mixing me up with some of your consipracy chums…I’m a good atheist, thank god. My beliefs are supported by evidence and the march of scientific discovery…one of the greatest milestones in space exploration has been the moon landings…to orbit a comet, to look at pics from the surface of Mars, to witness the Voyager 1 journey into deep space are testaments to human endeavour…well, most human endeavour…

          These are not faked, unmanned craft can make it to the moon.

          The craft can be designed to be light enough to make it in one full ascent. This is because the craft does not require extra propulsion fuel and oxygen provisions.

          The van Allen radiation belts don’t affect inanimate objects, so asking as the visual recording equipment is digital format and not analogue tape, which due it’s e/m qualities is susceptible to radiation deformation, all will be fine.

          The Russians were v much aware of this lethal radiation sitting just outside of the earth’s orbit and only sent animals up beyond the earth’s orbit, all the animals died prematurely from severe radiation poisoning.

            They explain it right at the start: ” A virtual tour created from data”

            In other words its an animation.

            Did you think it was real?

            Denying the reality that’s right on front you.

            Typical of the intellectual rigor around these parts.

            he thinks what’s real is fake and what’s fake is real.
            consistent, anyway.

            lovely, informative video is all i’m trying to say.

      No that’s the colour the moon is. You can see it there in the picture that’s the colour of it right enough

        So why when we look up is it grey?
        And photos from when the yanks landed on it was it grey?
        And did they use colour cameras when filming the earth and decided to use black and white when filming the moon

        1. Tony

          Now look here you.

          Did ye never hear the phrase ‘the camera never lies’? Look at the photograph there above. That’s a photograph of the moon as well you know. And that’s the colours of the moon – yellow and orange and red and that. Grey is it? Like a mouse. Are you saying the moon is like a mouse because that’s just crazy talk

            In fairness the moon looks grey from the Earth because of spectroscopic distortion caused by the Van Allen radiation belts

            The moon looks grey because it is made of cheese. And the cheese is covered in mould. And mould is grey.
