How The First-Ever Moon Landing Was Re-Created In 'First Man'
I'm just happy I did not pay for this move.. the effects were good.. most. anyway BUT.. the God damn camera was shaking ALL OVER THE MOVE.. you can't even enjoy the effects.. it was overkill.. and then came Neil.... a walking depression.. horrible acting..
If we had another space race to the moon, we would be able to do much better. Back then, that technology was just enough for us to get to the Moon. With that budget, it actually is cheaper to go to the moon at that time then it would be to just fake it. Faking it would have been possible, if it wasn't for Soviet Union trying to disprove us with radio communications beam tracking to listen to radio calls, and see what communications we're being broadcast. The fact that they were able to hear the communications coming from that spot in the sky where it was expected to be, and that there was no radio Uplink real-time to bounce the signal off, kind of allow the Soviet Union to realize that there's no way for them to disprove it.
Even the Soviet Union finally gave up and agreed that we had won.
First Man is just more propaganda. Continuing to push the deception agenda. The truth is The World is flat and we didn't go to the Moon. Outer space is fake. Everything NASA and other space agencies shows you is deception. Time to wake up.
They didnt recreate the Apollo 11 moon landing. The CREATED a fictional moon landing by liberal d-bags where they intentionally omitted the fact it was an AMERICAN. achievement. You leave out the American flag planting? Its fiction. Cant change history to serve their agenda.
I've seen things you people wouldn't believe. Flat earth rockets on fire off the rocks of the Mojave. I watched Ebay lasers glitter in the dark at the Salton Sea. All those moments will be lost in time, like flat earther's tears in Lake Ponchartrain. Time for Flat earth to die.
There will of course be morons who claim that a 2018 film creating a reasonably convincing impression of a real landing proves that it was faked in 1969. They're wrong in so many ways that it gets boring to list them.
THEY MUST BE MAD,, TO GLORIFY THE BIGGEST LIE IN HISTORY. ESPECIALLY AS THE PROOF OF THIS, IS MOUNTAIN HIGH , AND ADDED TO YEAR BY YEAR. i HOPE ALL CONCERNED PAY THE PRICE FOR THEIR LACK OF RESPECT FOR DESTROYING THE BELIEFS AND HOPES OF A GENERATION, AND ALL, THE BILLIONS OF DOLLARS STOLEN FROM 'THE PEOPLE.'
Thrusters, and rockets landing on planetary bodies in a vacuum , are almost universally depicted as emitting billowy clouds of propellant or ejecta which is an error as the 'billowiness' of clouds is an effect of ejected gasses/materials encountering the resistance of an atmosphere, which is supposed to be absent.
The ejected material should describe uninterrupted ballistic trajectories instead.
Look at the thrusters of the falcon 9 when landing compared to the same thrusters in space. Or look at the material kicked up by the lunar astronauts - it just sprayed away from them; no suggestion of fine dust billowing as a result of resistance of an atmosphere.
I have heard that already from a poster who said he had worked in the building of the Saturn V and also that the way they present the exhaust of the LEM doesn't look right to him, who had actually seen how rockets work in a vacuum. Care to explain...?
Easy, use the same studio used to film the 1st moon feature film lol. Only now we have better cgi. Hey NASA...why haven't you been back to the moon?...oh yes, you "accidentally" destroyed the technology and cant recreate it HAHAHAHA. Its cool because people believe it.
+MartijnXD // Right on point, brother. I've been preaching this every time I hear or read someone complain that NASA has "lost the technology". The US benefitted greatly by taking in Werner Von Braun and many other German rocket scientists and engineers following WWII, which gave the US space program a very much needed shot in the arm. Most people - especially those born after Apollo ended - just don't realize how much brain power, manufacturing, and expertise it took to pull off Apollo. As you mentioned, those brilliant people are no longer with us, and there was unfortunately no transfer of knowledge from the old guard to the new guard after Apollo ended. Today's NASA seems to be content with just sending out unmanned probes.
You obviously don't know what you are talking about.
Here are some of the actual reasons why we never rebuilt the Saturn V rocket:
1: When the Apollo was built, not everything was documented. The engineers sometimes tweaked or improved certain parts of the rocket, and some of these changes were never documented. These people are (sadly) now dead, so we will never know how they build those parts or what they've changed. In that sense, some of the blueprints for the rocket are "lost".
2: Some of the parts for the Saturn V rocket required particular manufacturing processes which are now obsolete. The tools needed to make the tools to make the rockets no longer exist.
3: We can build better rockets. There's no need to build the Saturn V rocket again because it's expensive, and we learned a lot of new stuff over the years that could help us build bigger and better rockets.
And for why we've never been back to the moon:
There's no reason to go back. The moon is basically a big dusty rock floating around our planet. We've already done most of the science there that we wanted to do there. If we still want to research things on the moon, we either send a rover or lander, or just research the moon samples that the astronauts brought back during the Apollo missions. Not only that, but it's also extremely dangerous and expensive.
A few years ago I lived about five minutes' drive from Johnson Space Center, having moved from Australia so my wife could be closer to her family, one of whom works for NASA at JSC.
I spent one of the most exciting days ever being given a personal tour of the center, with access to some of the places tourists don't see. Phenomenal.
When I first moved, I used to pass by JSC every day. On my way to work every morning, I'd hang a right off NASA Road 1 on to Saturn Lane, which splits the complex in two.
In terms of getting to work it was a longer journey, but it was worth it to drive past Rocket Park and the restored Saturn V rocket on one side and the replica shuttle sat atop NASA 905 on the other.
I used to think that I'd eventually become so used to going by every day that it would end up being one more mundanity. But it never did. I loved it.
Those that are saying they did not have this technology back in the 1950's and 1960's have you ever watched 2001: A Space Odyssey? The narrator in the video even alludes to Kubrick using technology they used in the First Man film. Front Screen projection, Harnesses to Helium balloons, Motion Rigs, all these were used back in the Apollo Space Programme for training. Let the truth be told, sell a Movie.
The movie was poor in my opinion. I expected more from the director of Whiplash and La La Land, Ryan Gosling and Claire Foy. Don't get me wrong, the film had some amazing moments that had you gripping your seat but ultimately it felt very dragged out. The family parts of the movie though necessary dragged on too much and took away from the story. The ending was just underwhelming. I think I just overhyped this movie, idk.
It was a good movie, but my big complaint was their exaggeration of the vibration. Vibrations were the most several during the first stage of the Saturn V launch, but nowhere near the way they dramatized it in subsequent stages, and especially not during the LM powered descent. That was a big annoyance for me.
In a TV show with Bob Hope, Neil Armstrong said "THE LAST 25 YEARS WERE AMAZING BUT THE NEXT 25 YEARS WILL BE EVEN EXCITING...!" - Yes, we specialized in.... going into orbit !! I remember my dad saying something like 'after going to the Moon, all we do now is go around the Earth ?? '
WHO FUCEN CARES HOW IT WAS FILMED!!! they cut out planting the american flag on the moon because they were afraid of being non-politically correct. i was 9 years old and watched every moon mission on a hardwood floor on a B/W tv. This was a American Achievement.
Speaking of more of the ususal NASAtard BS:
How many times have you heard them saying that with 400.000 people working on their phony Moon landings it would have been impossible to keep the hoax secret if it was really one, that someone would have talked. Now, cue Don Pettit, NASA spokesman:`
"We had that technology but we destroyed it it, we dont have it anymore"
if there was really 400.000 people working in that NASA Moon landings project how come no one among those 400.000 had enough brains to save that techonology from being destroyed...? How it is possible that they just stood there while the greatest technological achievement in Human history was being turned into dust and ashes...?
At the end of WW2 Germany was nothing but a field of ruins, nothing was left standing, all what it remained of the V2 project was a few blueprints and some rockets, yet it took the few sicentists still alive to rebuild the entire thing in a few years. And you are telling me that even with 400.000 people working in the Apollo project still alive, with everything left standing, buildings, launching pads, at the end, they could't manage save the Moon lainding technology from destruction...? And you are telling us, the skeptics, that we are the ones who believe in dumbass stories...?
Felix Mendez // Unfortunately, Felix, that's the way things turned out. The engineers, scientists, and technicians who came to the US from Germany after WWII are either dead or very advanced in age. When NASA decided to refocus its attention on reusable technology like the space shuttle after Apollo ended, those older engineers, scientists, and technicians either moved on to other jobs with other companies, retired, or croaked. There was never a transfer of the old knowledge to the new people within NASA. Now, forty-some years later, NASA is forced to reinvent the wheel all over again.
If a man is "really" landed on the moon, the most overwhelming thing would not be the gravity, the moon dust, nor the landscape. It is the earth that is hanging in the sky, which is roughly 4 times as large as the moon we see usually, and always on the same spot.
This documentary is more interesting than the film.
You've just seen all the best bits, the rest is all about his dead daughter, super close ups of Goslings face and long silences. I was bored stiff along with everyone else in the cinema.
