I have a friend that does not believe we landed on the moon. He says this because there are no stars in the backgroud of the pictures that were taken while up there on the moon. Does anyone know why that is?
Placing a star in its position in the sky relative to all the other stars is easy if you know your stars or have a few star charts, seriously that part would very very easy to do even in them days. As for Hubble whats that that got to do with stars viewable by the naked eye from the moon . Any star viewable whilst standing on the moon without the use of a telescope would be very easy to view from the earth by either by the naked eye, binoculars or a very cheap telescope.The stars which are only viewable by Hubble could never be viewed through the naked eye whilst standing or filming through a normal camera on the moon.
JollyI'm not a scientist but just someone who enjoys learning about science,nature ,life etc. I don't try to prove you wrong because i think your being silly or stupid because we all get things wrong from time to time . I try to show you why your wrong because you asked the question and i enjoy trying to help people with their understanding and learning about this stuff. Many things i know nothing about and occasionally my ideas are hopelessly wrong but i have an open mind and I'm willing to learn from those much cleverer than me. In the end if you don't wish to believe me or anyone else on this forum when we try to answer you then thats your right. It makes no real difference to me if you believe me or not because all i need to know to be happy with myself is the thought that i did try to help you.
The most surprising thing to me about this ridiculous claim that it was a hoax, is that some people actually manage to believe it was! How do they manage it? If it really was a hoax do you not think that the Russians at least would have been able to expose it? After all, the ONLY reason for going to the Moon was to beat the Russians to it, yet they have never once even hinted at the possibility that it was a hoax, they know it was real! That is why they gave up their own attempt after they ran into problems with their booster, it kept exploding on take off! There was no point in them continuing once they realised the Americans had beaten them to it. Nobody in the world had more reason to want to prove it was a hoax than the Russians. The Russians are not daft, they were closely monitoring the Americans every inch of the way, and were able to determine for a fact that the Americans did actually land on the Moon, much to their annoyance. If the Russians say the Americans landed on the Moon, and they do, then the Americans landed on the Moon. It's that simple.http://www.click2finding.com/click2.aspx?pr=Science/Physics/Astrophysics/
