I never doubted the landing and still really don't, but this week was the anniversary week of the moon landing, and something odd struck me.
I watched some 4 hours of documentaries, and one piece of footage keeps puzzling me.
There is one film shot showing the lunar module leaving the moon.
The shot is taken from the moon. And more surprising is that the camera is tracking the takeoff and even zooming in.
What puzzles me is how the camera could move and zoom without anybody operating it?
Or did they have some kind of remote on the camera?
How could one operate the remote so perfectly keeping the module in perfect view and focus, while being ejected with incredible speed off the moon?
And would they have time for operating a camera while being busy ejecting of the moon?
If it wasn't manually done, was the camera preprogrammed?
There were no computers in those days small enough to fit in a camera, so how did that work?
That camera also would have had to have a broadcasting device.
How would the footage otherwise find it's way to earth?
The moving and zooming camera is a mystery to me.
Maybe one of you could shed some light on it.
this is the link to the footage on youtube.
