Great article! It's amazing what people believe sometimes, and what they accept as proof in some situations and not in others.

“Would look really amazing in the low Lunar gravity!” - I'd have to agree with that one.

If "no major film director has been on the moon since".... how did they film the 'on location' shots for Iron Sky?

So do you guys think Apollo 13 was fake also? If they were fake why would 13 if real become such a great story? I bet Big Foot and UFOs are all fake to.

After the putting so much effort into faking the moon landings, Kubrick realised that Apollo 12 was nothing more than a 'repeat' episode. Therefore "Moon Landing the Third" needed something punchy to get the audiences back... and with the number 13.... yeah it had to be done

But, from the Moon, you can clearly tell the Earth is flat...>ducks<..:wink:
Please don't start harassing the round-earthers again; the giant tortoise the earth sits on gets really annoyed when they get agitated.

That is really original. Hopefully some NASA folks will read it and get a chuckle.

This explains apollo 8. Never knew why they'd fly all the way there for nothing. Turns out Kubrick just fired the actors halfway into filming and started over.

I guess the Mars landers are just in Hollywood and not really on Mars.

I have met with Dick Gordon of Apollo 12. He also flew a Gemini mission. The moon landings were real. I'll bet you voted for Hillary.

My favorite part of this thread is how easy it is to see who didn't take George's advice and read the article before posting.

It was very funny. My sister in law is a geologist by degree, and used to work for a company that was partly owned by Harrison Schmitt. She was thinking of sending it him.

Meeting someone who went to the moon to act in a movie proves nothing.

You're new around here, I see. You may want to check out the forum rules sticky...and maybe even read the article in the original post.

Cheers,

... but was it REALLY him who went and not a stunt double??? Astronauts are expensive to replace if you lose one.
Ooh, good point. Stunt doubles are expendable. Plus they work for scale :grin:

They were all stunt doubles. Thats why they used government test pilots. They were simply detailed and didn't even get extra pay. Didn't you see the invoice where Buzz aldrin only got $38 reimbursement to fly to moon to act in this farce?
