    Apollo 13 is a 1995 American docudrama space adventure film directed by Ron Howard. The film stars Tom Hanks, Kevin Bacon, Bill Paxton, Gary Sinise, and Ed Harris. The screenplay by William Broyles, Jr., and Al Reinert, that dramatizes the aborted 1970 Apollo 13 lunar mission, is an adaptation of the book Lost Moon: The Perilous Voyage of Apollo 13 by astronaut Jim Lovell and Jeffrey Kluger.
    The film depicts astronauts Lovell, Jack Swigert, and Fred Haise aboard Apollo 13 for America's third Moon landing mission. En route, an on-board explosion deprives their spacecraft of most of its oxygen supply and electric power, forcing NASA's flight controllers to abort the Moon landing, and turning the mission into a struggle to get the three men home safely.

    Rocket technology is one thing, for annoying ones enemy, however, using them to travel within deep space is quite another, that is assuming such a thing actually exists at all. Evidence suggests that he once seriously thought space travel was possible when younger, but he soon understood that such a thing was impossible. His plans for coping with the necessary conditions of outer space, like for example incredibly variable temperatures, zero gravity, and pressure, as well as the power, required to leave the Earth's gravitational pull, travel 250,000 miles, and then return safely home, seemed both logical and necessary. However NONE of these were satisfied by any of either the Apollo, or any other space bound missions, which brings serious doubt that any of them actually happened at all, or certainly not as reported, very much including Apollo 13. Which may or may not have made for an exciting adventure movie, but had little or no reference to anything that actually happened. Even a rudimentary knowledge of basic school boy physics, or human biology for that matter, clearly dictates that sending a man into deep space, never mind landing him anywhere, would result in instant death, as well as loads of other completely impossible thing to happen, including the basic laws of science to magically invert themselves, for no apparent reason. IMO, anyone who still believes in rocket propelled space travel, long since lost the ability to think for themselves, or never had such an ability in the first place, and certainly never bothered to learn, even the rudiments of basic science.

      I've asked numerous hoax believers to explain away all these points listed below and they can only come up with the typical hoax believer answer. Until you people can come up with something better that can be verified by credible experts in the relevant fields involved, then as far as I'm concerned, the moon landing hoax theory is right up there with the flat-Earth nonsense. Btw. I've posted this for years and nobody has made a serious attempt to counter any of it:


      -> 400,000 people were involved with the project, yet nobody has come forward with evidence that the landings never happened. You guys like to bring up the Manhattan Project compartmentalization security that kept only the ones in the need to know fully aware of what was going on. Yeah, sure. A top secret military project that kept even vice president Truman out of the loop being compared to a project like Apollo that was as publicly open as possible. Yet despite all the USA's attempts to keep the A-bomb project under wraps Russia still managed to get key people in the right places to provide them enough info that they developed their own bomb much sooner than the USA expected and which looked remarkably similar to the Fat Man bomb used on Nagasaki. You seriously expect us to believe that in the past 50 years since the landings were supposedly staged, nobody has come forward with insider information or definitive proof? Yeah, right.
      ->Typical hoax believer answer: (Something involving a worldwide conspiracy with zero credible proof)

      -> The Russians tracked and confirmed all 6 of the Apollo moon landings. Why would the USA's major competitor during the space race do that?
      ->Typical hoax believer answer: (Something involving a worldwide conspiracy with zero credible proof)

      -> Russia, Europe, China, India and Japan have all flown missions to the moon. So far, none of these countries/nations have brought forth any evidence that it's impossible to do a manned mission to it. That includes this nonsense about the radiation in the VAB's being too hazardous to pass through. No radiation expert from any country including the ones mentioned here have ever stated that the radiation in the VAB's was an insurmountable problem during the Apollo missions to the moon. Why is that?
      ->Typical hoax believer: (Something involving a worldwide conspiracy with zero credible proof)

      -> Scientist from around the world have verified and peer reviewed all of the lunar rock & core samples plus all the data transmitted back to Earth by the ALSEP's left behind. There's also the Apollo 16 UV telescope images that include some of Earth that no astronomer has ever found fault with. Why would intelligent individuals go to such trouble?
      ->Typical hoax believer: (Something involving a worldwide conspiracy with zero credible proof)

      -> Hoax believers have for the last 50 years tried to find evidence that the landings were faked and have found nothing that can't be debunked. The proof they failed is that despite all their efforts, the missions are still in the history books. A story of that magnitude would have been seized on by investigative reporters and news networks. Not just the USA but countries from around the world would have gone after the biggest scoop in history. Explain how come they haven't.
      ->Typical hoax believer: (Something involving a worldwide conspiracy with zero credible proof)

      -> Third party evidence from countries outside the USA that NASA would have had to orchestrate and coordinate flawlessly while at the same time supposedly hoaxing the mission; How could they manage that without insider proof coming forward for the past 50 years to blow the whistle on it all?
      ->Typical hoax believer: (Something involving a worldwide conspiracy with zero credible proof)


      Trying to discredit information because it came from NASA, as I'm sure you'll do, is a bit ridiculous. They made all the engineering and science required to pull the missions off available to their counterparts from all kinds of countries throughout the world.


      In regards to the Apollo landings, we are talking about hundreds of 1000's if not millions of people with above average intelligence in various countries throughout the world over a time span of 50 years.

      I'm not just talking about the people involved with the project while it was happening. There's also all the scientists and engineers in the following decades that have access to everything related to it regarding the engineering plus all the scientific, peer reviewed evidence, data and samples. Yet in all that time none of these highly intelligent folks from around the world have ever found a way to somehow get information out to anybody about NASA"s alleged duplicity regarding the supposed landing hoax.

      Considering how incompetent everybody seems to think governments are, it's pretty amazing how people like you have no problem believing that a hoax of this magnitude could have been kept for so long without one piece of verified proof from the hoax believers being brought forward in 50 years. All you guys have is unsubstantiated claims that require ridiculously more unlikely and equally unverifiable conspiracies within conspiracies to keep the original moon landing conspiracy going. Does that not give you the slightest hint that maybe the moon landing conspiracy is seriously flawed? People who see no problem with that usually dismiss, ignore or don't understand the irrefutable scientific evidence.

    • mako88sb
      mako88sb 2 days ago

      If you ever do attempt to do some proper research, you would find that every single supposed bit of evidence brought up about alleged proof regarding hoaxing the Apollo landings have been debunked over the years. Most of it with relative ease because the supposed proof is usually based on complete ignorance of the particular subject involved. Meanwhile, there is tons of scientific evidence that is irrefutable which has been accessible to scientists and aerospace engineers for the last 50 years who have never found anything that might suggest the landings were faked so it's only people who lack critical thinking skills who fall for this moon landing hoax nonsense. Here's some of it:

      -> There's the live TV coverage that would have to somehow convincingly fake 1/6th G movement in a vacuum, Google "Irrefutable Proof for Moon Landing - Lunar Gravity" and explain how experts in the field of kinematics for 50 years have never come forward with proof that the astronauts are not in an environment that they say they are. There's also the fact that any attempts to do filmed mockups of the eva's on Earth would have to be passed off as live TV broadcasts which would have to fool telecommunications experts around the world. Google "Moon Hoax Not" and "For Jarrah" to get a better understanding of how much would be involved to pull that off and how the filming technology back then was simply incapable of such a thing.

      -> There's all the moon rock and core samples that would have to somehow be able to pass scrutiny with geologists who can readily spot whether it's something that has passed through our atmosphere or not.
      Google "How do we know that rock came from the moon?"

      -> NASA has made these samples available to scientists from around the world and every year 500-1000 samples are sent out.
      Google: "NASA lunar sample request"

      -> There's the Apollo 16 UV telescope images that no astronomer in 50 years has ever found fault with. Google "onebigmonkey apollo 16 UV telescope"

      -> Another thing that astronomers would be able to spot are pictures of the Earth that don't match what they should look like. Google "Apollo 11 Earthrise - How One Photo Proves it was Real" for an example.

      -> Another one to google is "Apollo 11: Fingerprints in Deep Space" that shows obvious handheld TV footage from the Apollo 11 CM looking at Earth from far enough away that they are clearly beyond the VAB's.

      -> Then there are the LOR images. Lots of hoax believer nonsense about them being faked but the transmittal data for them can be downloaded by anybody with a computer and so far, nobody has proven anything about them being faked. You don't think a smoking gun like that wouldn't have been scrutinized by people with the required computer science expertise??

      -> Here's something else you might not know. Apollo 12 landed close enough to Surveyor 3 that Conrad & Bean were able to do an Eva to it and removed the camera and sampler scoop from it to be returned back to Earth. They wanted to see what the harmful conditions of the moon had done to those parts after 2.5 years: Google "Analysis of Surveyor 3 Material ad photographs returned by Apollo 12"

      -> 5 plutonium-238 powered ALSEP's were left behind that transmitted data from the experiments back to Earth right up till 1977. Unfortunately, due to budget constraints, they were shut down but they did send back enough information that storage of it became a real problem as detailed in this article: Google "the-long-road-to-alsep-data-recovery"

      -> Starting with Apollo 13, they purposely directed the spent S-IVB's to crash into the moon so that the Apollo 12 seismograph could record the seismic waves generated to help determine the moon's crustal structure and makeup. Of course, as each successful mission added another ALSEP, they were able to expand on the info derived from these man-made impacts. They also did the same with the lunar module ascent stages. The Apollo 16 LM ascent stage data isn't shown because of difficulties during the de-orbit phase. They were able to derive a lot of info from these artificial impacts. Google "The Description of Apollo Seismic Experiments darts"

      -> Another great site to check out has some pretty thorough crater analyzing to prove the landings happened. You can check out all six of the landings this way: Google "onebigmonkey apollo sights landing"

      Are you starting to understand the magnitude of what would be involved to pull a hoax like this off? Never mind keeping it from being exposed?

      I suggest you also take the time to read through the 93-page pdf titled "NASA’s Recommendations to Space-Faring Entities: How to Protect and Preserve the Historic and Scientific Value of U.S. Government Lunar Artifacts". There is lots of nonsense from hoax believers that the USA is trying to make the Apollo sites inaccessible which is ridiculous seeing as these are only recommendations designed to limit harmful effects of spacecraft landing too close or the altitude of hopper type craft flying at too low of an altitude. The fact is, the USA has no issue at all with visits to the sites by manned or unmanned means. They do request the Apollo 11 and 17 sites are accorded with the proper respect due to the obvious historic value. Also, there is an Appendix B in the pdf that gives a lot of recommendations from NASA as to what type of investigations at the Apollo sites would be most beneficial for scientific purposes. Now does this seem like the type of behavior for a country that supposedly faked all of this??

      As I said, irrefutable proof that has withstood scrutiny by the relevant experts from around the world in all the specialties involved for 50 years which in my book proves beyond a doubt that the landings happened just the way they were documented 50 years ago and which easily trumps supposed proof that this was all faked but that same supposed proof doesn't stand up long to scrutiny.

    Background music goes in the background buddy, can barely hear what you`re saying here..
    Turn the music down, seriously, having something in the background, like a documentary or podcast with a volume appropriate for the voice, then music comes on or an ad starts playing, then my ears start bleeding and I have to exit my game or come in from the kitchen or whatever I`m doing and turn it down, then back up, because youtubers prioritize their own voice lower than music, clips and youtube`s ads.
    Voice as close to 1dB as possible, that`s what the ads are.
    I don`t want to *concentrate* on what someone is saying because the background music is in the foreground..
    Still subbing though ;)

    The reason that manned space missions to the moon or Mars are not happening is because there is no knowledge that would be gained by doing so. Technology has come so far that we can gather detailed information using satellites, robotics, cameras, etc. We are collecting tremendous amounts of data daily from the safety of our planet. What we have learned over all these years is that space is as lethal as it is beautiful. The most hostile location on earth is still thousands of times more habitable than a place like Mars. We are totally helpless without planet Earth and I will save you all the suspense, there is NOTHING out there but exotic ways to die. I have seen things you people would not believe.... Even if we ever achieve travel at light speed, that's not fast enough to get us to another habitable planet. The best we can hope for is to somehow "seed" ourselves into the universe using some sort of DNA preservation in capsules that can carry out the processes of producing and sustaining life when reaching a habitable destination. Sort of like a virus. The other, less realistic option, is that we will somehow be able to instantaneously travel from one side of the universe to another using some sci fi wormhole scenario. All scenarios however are extremely unlikely to the order of 1 in a billion, or worse, and the most likely scenario is that our species will perish with this planet, probably much sooner.
