This OP is not an attempt to propose any theories whatsoever. Questions are not theories. After reading, please enjoy the HQ TV News broadcast segment (linked below, English Translation available) which contains crystal clear footage of multiple items discussed herein. What would motivate a Govt funded agency like NASA to lie? Who would benefit? Would patriotism undergo a huge resurgence if, for example, the Govt were suddenly able to brag to a disenfranchised populous about how NASA had sent human beings safely to the moon and back? What if, to rub it in Russia's face, they went ahead and did it 5 more times? Do you think anyone would tune in for that? Do you think something like that could make the State appear even more powerful and Godlike than it already does? Could any money be made from say, (completely rhetorically) faking something like a moon landing? Could something such as a Space Program ever realistically be used by the military as a means to justify the confiscation of potentially ALL independently developed technologies not yet known to the public? Would Russia really have "Won the Jackpot" in the proverbial Propaganda Lottery, had they exposed America for (completely rhetorically) faking something as monumental as perhaps, a moon landing? Would Russia have gained more by exposing America's (possible but highly unlikely) Space hoaxes, or would they have gained more by simply emulating America, subtly validating the notion that the world's two largest superpowers were indeed so Omnipotent in their abilities? Then again, Russia never did end up making it there, did they? I guess the one screwup on Apollo 13 made Russia think twice, huh? I just don't get it, though... America had already shown how safe and easy it was to do! 6 times! Of course, NASA held a widely televised press conference a few years back, telling the publuc about how they don't currently possess the technology to safely travel to the moon and back, but that's not going to stop me from believing they did it 6 times in the late 1960's (using Von Braun's then scientifically antiquated 1940's rocket technology.) Is it an absolute truth that "Thousands of people would have to be in on it", if something like a moon landing were ever to be staged? Have you ever heard of this crazy little thing called Compartmentalization? No? Well, how about these other crazy little things called Salaries and Pensions? Funny how America & Russia never got around to nuking each other to smithereens, despite 5 decades worth of opportunities and promises to do so. Very, very funny. Isn't it also funny how China (the world's Official brand new 3rd Superpower) has very recently joined in on all the fun? Hmm... Speaking of China, have you ever seen the multitudes of air bubbles that float up past the Chinese Astronauts and travel off into space in jagged paths during their Space Walks? Crazy. I was always told by my Govt that space is a vacuum. I guess air bubbles (in the vacuum of space) behave exactly as if they were in a giant swimming pool. Heck! I'm amazed at the fact China was able to even successfully bring such neat little air bubbles into orbit with them. That's cool! Another thing I learned from watching the Chinese Space Walks is that any equipment or tools you bring outside the spaceship will always appear buoyant and will need to be held down, so they don't float directly upwards. You'll have to physically hold them down between every crank of your space wrench, but that's ok. See, your space suit is way heavier in Space Gravity, so you won't be as buoyant! Do people sincerely believe such an overblown Govt agency with so much to gain (and so much to benefit from by perpetuating) would NEVER lie to the public? Our Alphabet Soup of Govt agencies are constantly being exposed for fraud and misappropriation of funds. I guess NASA is different, though. They're special. Remember, they are at the cutting edge of technology, so obviously they're morally obligated to be 100% honest and transparent to the public. I mean, with 10,000+ Satellites in orbit, there should be thousands upon thousands of photographs of the Earth from space. I've looked for them, but unfortunately can't seem to find any Official "non-composite" photos other than the ones from 1969-1972, when we heroically went to the moon and back 6 times in a 4 year span. I'm sure if I look real hard I'll eventually find them, though. I always hope for the best. On top of that, we automatically know that any image NASA has given us of the earth from space in more recent years are doctored, as is clearly demonstrated by the fact that the 10,000+ satellites our Govts have floating around up there are nowhere to be seen in any of them. Sure, there are tons of composite shots with partial earth views and one satellite taking up most of the frame, but there aren't any images showing the entire planet surrounded by multiple satellites, let alone 10,000 of them. Peep this HQ Chinese Govt Broadcast NEWS package= https://m.youtube.com/watch?v=ZaSe60IdFt4 Air bubbles @ 1:59, 2:04, 2:33, 7:17, 9:06-9:12 Blatant Stage Lighting on wrist mirrors @ 3:57, 4:09, then vanishes Inexplicably buoyant equipment @ 4:44 and throughout What's reflecting off his face mask @ 7:27-7:58 ??? (The earth is supposed to be behind them.) Observe the look of slightly sped up film throughout only the Space Walk portion of footage. Have a wonderful evening, and thanx so much for viewing!!!
