Apollo Zero discusses issues related to NASA and its landing on the Moon. Various points are made to get to the truth and to question the arguments given by NASA in support of the expedition to Moon.
Till today only three countries, US, China and Russia have succeeded in putting a man merely in Earth’s orbit. This suggests the difficulty of the task. The next point to ponder over is that the distance between moon and the earth is 240,000 miles. No country post the supposed landing on the moon ever claims to have gone more than 400 miles from Earth.
The International Space Station orbits at 200 miles above Earth. It is clear that there exist a big difference between 240,000 miles and 400 miles. What one wonders why is it very difficult to cover more than 400 miles from Earth today when we had supposedly accomplished a 480,000 mile round trip in 1969.
NASA further asserts that three men were loaded into a rocket, flew 240,000 miles to the moon and then achieved lunar orbit. They say the two astronauts flew 60 miles to the surface of the moon, in a vacuum and 1/6 Earth gravity. They stayed on the moon for up to three days in 250 degree heat and played golf as well.
The answer provided to the important question of how they managed to stay in an unfriendly atmosphere for so long, they reply with the assistance of batteries.
They then supposedly blasted off the surface of the moon and returned 240,000 miles back to Earth. They re-entered Earth’s atmosphere going 25,000 mph, and managed a safe landing with the aid of parachutes.
