No U.S. footprints to be seen on Moon
November 21, 2007
ChinaView reports that pictures by Chang’e-1 will not show U.S. astronauts’ footprints left on moon. What they don’t explain is that this is because the footprints aren’t there. After all, everyone knows the Americans never made it to the Moon, except in their dreams and a TV studio.
The Chinese say their lunar orbiter’s camera doesn’t have the resolution to see footprints only 30cm long, but they’re just helping the U.S. “save face“, though who can tell which one. Not even the Hubble Telescope can help, it can only see things 60m across or bigger; but NASA would say that, wouldn’t they!
We will have to wait for the launch of the Lunar Reconnaissance Orbiter (LRO) in late 2008 for the next stage in this game. And game it must be, as it can’t be rocket science.
While you’re waiting, you can play on Google Moon. Choose “Apollo 11”, then “8: Gait experiments” for the very same spot where the astronauts didn’t walk.
For real rocket science, play Moon Cave. This really shows why the U.S. couldn’t have developed the right technology to get to the moon and back, never mind land on and take off from it.
