Live at the Apollo? Can't Post or Reply Privately

I have noticed that NASA have just provided 'evidence' that disproves
the myths of the faked moon landings.
My jury is still out, has been for 42 years, as to their authenticity but
in the days of all-embracing technology, Photoshop rules, no?




FA Vase semi programme wanted: 2001 Taunton v Clitheroe.

FA Trophy programmes wanted: 1969-70 Any round from first season. Have many but plenty of gaps still to fill.

It's said that the Moon has one sixth of the Earth's gravity.

Even so just how do you launch a craft from the moon? Admittedly I am an idiot but struggle to see how they could have done this. Not a smooth surface for a plane style launch so they would have had to create a vertical launch, not only trained astronauts but engineers also?

You mean how did they take off from the moon on the Apollo missions?

The lunar module had two sections. It landed upright on the moon, using the fuel and engine in the lower part of the spacecraft to manuevre and slow down. When the time came to take off, the upper part (which housed the living space) blasted off, using the lower part as a launch pad and leaving it on the moon's surface.

See http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Apollo_Lunar_Module

Surely the heat generated during take-off would have turned the moon into fondue?

That would have to be one hell of a big spacecraft engine to melt a lump of rock over 3,000 miles across!

Of course you were! Even still, that's one hell of a fondue set.
