Windows 7: Moon Hoax?

Actually wouldn't be so hard. Focus not a problem because it's probably a wide angle lens with a high f-stop, since there's plenty of light. A remote servo mounting controlled by a crew member watching on a TV monitor aboard the LEM would make this quite simple.

Ok, sounds plausible, although keeping the module in the middle of the frame while being ejected at high speed would be more tricky than you suggest.

A Lame Brained Jackass was president during the moon landing, but it was not LBJ.

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?

That must have been one hell of a sophisticated camera.

I don't believe or don't want to believe the moon landing didn't happen.
I would be shocked because it is one of my earliest memories.
I was 3 yrs old, but I remember watching it with my family in front of the black and white tv.
I didn't understand then what I was watching, but I did remember it.

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.

I was a bit older than you that night and wondered that very thing. many years later when rc models were popular I tried it and found it was suprisingly easy to replicate. I doubt it was programmed but probably just one lucky person in mission control. I too want to believe, and given there is no proof choose to.

ah sorry - you have at least two advantages over me:

1 - i'm a brit
2 - i was 18 months old at the time

thanks for the correction (although LBJ must have been in on the conspiracy first! )

You know, I've always believed and wanted to believe that they did go to the Moon 40 years ago, but I have so much distrust of the American and UK Governments (Plus others!) that I have become quite sceptical. I think the biggest thing for me that makes me doubt the thing has to be the flag flapping around in the non-existant wind? I would still like somebody to explain that to me? I would love to say "Great stuff, now I'm happy to believe it!". One theory is that the Moon landing footage was filmed at Groom Lake, Nevada, just along from the non-existant Military Base Area 51. (Another US cover-up). Apparently the barren land around there looks just like a surface of a Moon, and of course, nobody could ever get close enough to see them film this as the US Military own miles of land all around!

I think it's good to be sceptical about things and not just blindly believe everythings that's told to you. Not exactly a very clever thing to do. Next thing you'll be saying is that Saddam had weapons of mass destruction! lol. (oh look, he didn't)

The human race does make me laugh. We believe things we are told that are believable, but we dismiss things immediately when they are unbelievable.

I'm sorry to say that Governments are not exactly 100% honest.

Agree with you on those points.

How about the magic bullet in the JFK killing?
They want us to believe it changed it's trajectory 7 times, entering two different body's.

But before I would dismiss the idea of landing of the moon, I would need a lot of conclusive evidence.

If it was a hoax, it will come out one day, but for now I assume it's not a hoax until proven otherwise.

Also because I like the idea of landing on the moon a lot more than the idea of it being a hoax.
