Nope. It was a fake picture to make us think we could beat the Russians in the Cold War.
I thought the russians smashed a dog or a monkey into the surface of the moon first.
I want to believe..
Heck No....didn't y'all see that Transformer movie
My Kung Fu is strong!!
yes at least w/a human America did.
I believe that we were the first to report it, and so probably the first to reach it. After all, countries love bragging about their accomplishments to the rest of the world. If another one reached it first, surely they could've suddenly been apt to be praised for it and worshiped.
Somebody landed on the moon?
Yes. Every fact points to it. Do you really think a couple of thousand people who worked on the Apollo missions could keep all that a secret for over 40 years?<br />
The Mafia is right saying "Three men can keep a secret as long as two are dead." A couple of thousand though. I don't think so. The posed fake photos have been debunked and proven a hoax years ago and many times since they first were proposed and shown. The Russians picked up the radio transmissions and telemetry so they knew that the Americans landed on the moon before we ever annonced it had been done successfully.
This is one of the old and disproved claims doubters have made. As an artist and most photographers and many other people realize how reflections can happen. Particularly on convex and concave reflective surfaces. Ever notice that you can place a straight stick in water and it appears to have a a kink or bed in it? This is similar to what could have happened to make that reflection you speak of. In water the surface is flat, but very refelctive. but ligt is hitting the surface at different anges than you are looing at the stick. Some light is direct light, some is reflected light from other objects close by. Add this to the properties of the water and it's capability to bend light (therefore reflections) you can get this phenomenon. Same thing is happening with a double rainbow. It can happen on a highly refective surface like the surface of the moon. or any other reflective surface. I have seen a model or an object relected on nearby objects when using reflectors during a photographic session. There was a machine built before Leonardo Da Vinci called a camera obscura. It used the exact principle as casued the reflection you cite. Artist used it to trace large murals from small scaled drawings. They used mirrors at anges and getting the reflection though one hole bounced off the mirror to a magnifying glass and using candles for the light source. It was done in a totally dark room. much like the background of space around the moons reflective surface. It is really a simply physics situation taught in Physics 101 in high school. This reflection of the astronaut has been duplicate several times. It proves nothing as far as being on the moon or not.
Yes. We reached right in and took those moonrocks. You can see them at the Smithsonian.
