Holy Cow! What a super cool find of the reversing of the Mercury blastoff film.
I'm stunned it was out there to find in the first place as it is a clear indication of faked and forged imagery. Well done.
Thanks kHAM (sorry, I couldn't resist)
Yes, the fakery is right there for all to see. But isn't that what these psychopaths do on a daily basis? Defy reality and common sense under the guise of "news"?
In any event, perhaps some nASSa apologist can come explain the variations for us. Let me guess:
1. nASSa: the backgrounds consisted of props that were moved around from time to time between launches.
SCS: In that case- great job with switching the dirt paths and background items as well! It's truly a marvelous feat that I would only expect the great U.S. team of experts to pull off. Pardon me while I
2. nASSa: one cameraman (a separate one of course) had some fun by filming the blastoff by pointing the camera at a mirror.
SCS: But what about the first one where the shack prop held up just fine?
nASSa: Well. . . okay so there were multiple takes of this blastoff (sometimes filming a mirror), and sometimes the prop flipped over, and other times we anchored it down. We had to test the force of rocket blasts on nearby structures to see how they would fare. There is that good enough?
Okay CF members, I'm truly doing my best to come up with a plausible explanation for this. These clips are from official nASSa documentaries after all.
I suppose a last ditch effort to save them (only after humiliating exposure of course) would be to claim (as we've heard before) that the launches and missions were all real, but they couldn't show us the real video because of national security reasons.
Note to CF members and Mods:Mods- please feel free to move this (and other posts on this point) to the appropriate NASA threads, since I've clearly (but unintentionally) derailed the original topic here.
Members- I would like to encourage/remind some
(certainly not all) members to please NOT assume that everything has already been legitimately and/or thoroughly researched.
There is still low hanging fruit out there such that even I can find it.
It's clear enough to me that most faked events have their prepackaged straw men propped up to give the appearance that it has already been covered and exposed and maybe "debunked" etc. That is the MO.
In fact (just as an example) there was NO exposure or examination of the OKC Memorial (that I'm aware of) until I put on my sewage protection gear and slopped through all the roughage and posted it on this forum.
That event was more than 20 years ago, so please keep up the good work everyone. I know the task is daunting, especially considering the events are "happening" faster than we (at least me) can keep up with.
Sorry, that was a long "note", but important nonetheless.
