This proves the moon landing was faked. Look at the flag blowing in the wind. Everybody knows there's no air on the moon.



Right?
Wrong.

Why did the flag flap on the Moon?

Another ‘giveaway’ that the landing was faked comes from the footage of the American flag that Neil Armstrong and Buzz Aldrin placed on the Moon. From photos and video, it appears to be flapping in the wind. But hold on a minute! There’s no air on the Moon so how can it flutter?!

The truth is that the flag isn’t flapping. If you look closely at the gif to the left, the flag is in the same position between two frames as the astronaut moves. There is a horizontal rod projecting from the post at the top of the pole to hold the flag unfurled. The flag was disturbed as it was planted into the ground and kept this bent shape because of the lack of strong gravity on the Moon.

In video footage of the flag being planted into the Moon’s surface, it also appears to wave back and forth. This is because when the astronauts were planting it, they rotated it back and forth to better dig into the lunar soil, which of course made the flag ripple as it swung like a pendulum- without a breeze. There’s a huge amount of footage of the flags stood on the Moon in exactly the same position.

That's nice. Don't remember talking about that...oh yeah... you just brought that up... just now. So you could ask a question and pretend to answer it. You do know they are timestamped, right


Here is what i brought up, that they were talking about in the video



They streamed the landing live from space before we even had cell phone capabilities

They recorded over the tapes of what would be mankind's greatest achievement

They lost the telemetry data.

We have never gone back

No other country has gone to the moon.

We can't even leave lower earth orbit to this day.


Oh..but...

Right?
Which one of the six is this one? Interesting factoid: there is only one left standing, and they have all turned into surrender flags (white). The first one by Buzz Aldrin was planted too close to the Apollo 11 Lunar Module, so when it took off to rendezvous with Columbia, it was blown away.

The USSR, Japan, and India flags were not planted by actual people.

That's because the beings that live inside the moon did not take kindly to us staking claim on their satellite. Therefore they were replaced with surrender flags.

they created a network consisting of large radio telescopes all around the world and at least one of those telescopes was listening to the astronauts at any given time. the telescopes were not designed for that, they were co-opted temporarily. australia has made a movie called "the dish" about exactly this program.

we still have tapes of the moon landing, they were not all recorded over

we have a lot of data from the moon. maybe now and then there has been some lost, but only a tiny fraction. most of it is still available. its not uncommon for information from that era. its often recorded on some weird media device, some variant of casette tape, but technology has moved on and now we dont have anything that can read the info on that particular weird media. its also common for film to simply decay over decades.

america did go back, there were 6 successful landings. the last couple drove a car around.

russia and china have both operated remote rovers on the moon. israel has landed a probe (well, crashed a probe). india and europe have plans to.

we can easily leave earth orbit, currently there are artificial satelites orbiting mercury, venus, mars, jupiter, saturn, and recently one did a fly-by past pluto. we have landed numerous probes on venus and mars and one on titan. all those missions went way beyond earth orbit.

in short, everything you said is wrong. but you knew that.

About the OP video....

Owen Benjamin's rationale goes like this.

Obama laughed evilly, so we didn't go to the moon.

Operation Paperclip, nazi scientists, so we didn't go to the moon.

All the telemetry tapes are missing/recorded over, so we didn't go to the moon. Apollo 11's slow-scan TV tapes are missing, but numerous copies of it exist.

You can't live broadcast from the moon now, so we didn't go to the moon. The live broadcasts from the moon were of very low quality. Read it: How NASA Broadcast Neil Armstrong Live from the Moon. Benjamin reveals he doesn't know squat on this subject.

You need a 150,000 volts to even do it a few miles, so we didn't go to the moon. What a bloody idiot Benjamin makes of himself. Transmitter power is measured in watts, not volts. Idiot. Deceptive idiot fooling self-willed morons.

The moon rock Armstrong gave to Holland was petrified wood, so we didn't go to the moon. Armstrong didn't give anything to Holland. Nixon gave a moon rock to Holland.

Brass is in moon rocks, so we didn't go to the moon. BS. Copper and zinc, the metals that alloy to make brass, were found, but no brass. Science idiot strikes again

The moon lander, looks like it was designed by a kid you gave adderol and glue, so we didn't go to the moon, Clearly he knows nothing about the moon landers. Read: Apollo Lunar Module - Wikipedia

For the reading challenged.


Benjamin would sell all his stuff to go to the moon so he could jump around like a black kid. That's what he said....

I absolutely cannot watch any more of Benjamin's know it all act. He's clueless and so is anyone who'd believe the continues stream of BS that emanates from his smart-ass mouth.

Someone would have to be really lazy and/or stupid to buy this BS.

It's Apollo 11's flag.

NASA admitted in 2006 that no one could find the original video recordings of the July 20, 1969, landing.


Since then, Richard Nafzger, an engineer at NASA’s Goddard Space Flight Center in Maryland, who oversaw television processing at the ground-tracking sites during the Apollo 11 mission, has been looking for them.

The good news is he found where they went. The bad news is they were part of a batch of 200,000 tapes that were degaussed — magnetically erased — and re-used to save money.

“The goal was live TV,” Nafzger told a news conference.

...and how did they say they streamed it live in the 60s?


We can theoretically shoot things (like teslas) out of low earth orbit, but people?

Curators at Amsterdam's Rijksmuseum, where the rock has attracted tens of thousands of visitors each year, discovered that the "lunar rock", valued at £308,000, was in fact petrified wood.
Xandra van Gelder, who oversaw the investigation, said the museum would continue to keep the stone as a curiosity.
"It's a good story, with some questions that are still unanswered," she said. "We can laugh about it."
The rock was given to Willem Drees, a former Dutch leader, during a global tour by Neil Armstrong, Michael Collins and Edwin "Buzz" Aldrin following their moon mission 50 years ago.
J. William Middendorf, the former American ambassador to the Netherlands, made the presentation to Mr Drees and the rock was then donated to the Rijksmuseum after his death in 1988.
"I do remember that Drees was very interested in the little piece of stone. But that it's not real, I don't know anything about that," Mr Middendorf said.
Nasa gave moon rocks to more than 100 countries following lunar missions in 1969 and the 1970s.
The United States Embassy in The Hague is carrying out an investigation into the affair.
Researchers Amsterdam's Free University were able to tell at a glance that the rock was unlikely to be from the moon, a conclusion that was borne out by tests.
"It's a nondescript, pretty-much-worthless stone," said Frank Beunk, a geologist involved in the investigation.



'Moon rock' given to Holland by Neil Armstrong and Buzz Aldrin is fake



There are a lot of questions w/ the moon landing.




The tapes going missing is my favorite

OK, I lied, one more post.

You didn't come close to addressing my points. You're dishonest. You string things along. You are a troll.
