      How do you aim a laser at something you can't even see with the most powerful telescopes on earth? Especially since it takes a 3 second round trip to know that you've hit it...


      I'm calling BS on the reflectors.

        @Simeon B Aiming a torch connected to a precisely aligned alt/az telescope mount? No, I wouldn't question the feasibility of that, since aiming the telescope is pretty routine.

        Oh, I get it. You're arguing from a position of ignorance. You call BS on anything you don't understand. If you don't know how something works, it's fishy. Well, ignorance makes a pretty poor argument. The good news for you is that ignorance is curable. Why don't you learn how telescope mounts work, then it won't be such a mystery to you.

      • Simeon B

        @John Jay So it's like shining a torch at a watch face about a kilometres away... And you didn't question the feasibility of any of that?

      • John Jay
        John Jay  5 days back

        @Simeon B I'm not really sure what you mean. The same way we aimed at anything else. The only difference being that the moon moves against the background of stars, so you have to translate a moon lat/lon location into an azimuth/elevation for the telescope. By the time the laser gets to the moon the beam is several kilometers wide, and we only kept it on firing bursts of light for a few seconds at a time. The moon doesn't move very far during the round trip, so it's not hard to hit the target.

        @coisasnatv I just went back and watched that segment of the Mythbusters episode. They did NOT say that it was impossible to do the ranging without a reflector.
        Adam Savage said: "We shined that laser at the moon on the second test, and we got a clear spike back. Photons came back to our receptor. The only way that that could happen is if there was a piece of man-made equipment up on the moon to reflect them back."
        So they merely demonstrated that they did not get a return from a random location on the moon, but did get a nice spike from where one of the retroreflectors was placed by Apollo.
        Even if you interpret his comment to mean what you said, he'd be wrong. It doesn't make any sense to say it's impossible. The moon reflects light - that's why we can see it. Therefore the moon's natural surface WILL reflect laser light. It's just that without the retroreflectors, you have to get very lucky and have a photon bounce directly straight back to your detector. That doesn't happen very often.
        On Mythbusters if they a) used a more powerful laser or b) kept the laser pointed at the moon longer, eventually they would have gotten some laser photons returned. The problem is they wouldn't have any idea where it came from - the top of a mountain or the bottom of a valley. That makes it useless for getting a precise distance. On the other hand we know exactly where we left the retroreflectors, and we can use a less powerful laser for a shorter amount of time and get a much more accurate measurement. And THAT'S why we took the retroreflectors to the moon.

        Yes, we did it before Apollo. We also did it with radar before Apollo. The retroreflectors just make it easier and more accurate.

          The formula is right here:

          distance(km)=ACOS(COS(RADIANS(90-Lat1))*COS(RADIANS(90-Lat2))+SIN(RADIANS(90-Lat1))*SIN(RADIANS(90-Lat2))*COS(RADIANS(Long1-Long2)))*6371 km.

          This formula calculates the correct distance between any two points on a SPHERE with a radius of 6371 km. Why does it work if earth is flat? The distance formula for a plane is entirely different. Why does the formula for a SPHERE work in the real world?

        With all the space dust and debris flying through space at a break-neck speed, how were they able to secure those "reflectors" from the barrage of incoming. Also we don't need reflectors on the moon, we use a system called a moon bounce that works just as well.

          Please don't tell me that you actually think the belts effects ROCK and dust? :-)

          And while you're here, read the following please;

          Google Search: *Asteroid Fast Facts | NASA,* and click on the first link with that title.

          Quote: "Every day, Earth is bombarded with more than 100 tons of dust and sand-sized particles"

          @Yazzam X I thought we were talking about the moon. Okay, we'll change the subject. As far as space out there, there is a huge difference between what is on this side of the Van Allen Belts and what's 60,000 miles up on the other side in OPEN SPACE. I thought you would know this.

        • Yazzam X

          ​@AmericanPatriot 1776 - You said "There is an incredible small and large debris storm constantly bombarding space everywhere ALL THE TIME. That is what space is all about"

          And yet the space station has been in orbit around the Earth for twenty years and the only impact it's know to have had is believed to have come from a man made object (possibly a fleck of paint)!

          And astronauts have been out in space on spacewalks since 1965, and up to 9 hours out in space with nothing but their spacesuits, and yet they are not ripped apart by all that debris.

          And the two Voyager craft were launched in 1977, where BOTH have now been in space for over 42 YEARS travelling away at incredible speed, both have left our solar system, and yet BOTH are still working today!

          So yes there is debris out in space, yes it is potentially dangerous, but to claim it is so bad that the reflectors on the moon should have been destroyed by now is nonsense.

          Facts matter my friend, they really do :-)

          @Yazzam X Uh, no I don't have an exaggerated view. Sorry to burst your bubble. There is an incredible small and large debris storm constantly bombarding space everywhere ALL THE TIME. That is what space is all about,. exploding stars send off dust and debris at the same rate of speed as it was when it exploded. No friction to slow it down. This isn't Star Trek.

              Do you REALLY not understand what the USA, USSR and China have in common?

              Do you REALLY not see why only the USA, USSR and China and NO OTHER NATIONS have built rockets/craft capable of taking people into space?

              Ask yourself why ONLY they have done it over the last 58 YEARS.
              Do you REALLY think it's because the USA, USSR and China are smarter than all other countries?

              By your logic, all manned space travel must be a hoax because other nations should have done it themselves by now. Right? :-)

              Go to Google Images and search for: *Nasa Budget as a percentage of Federal Budget*

              Click on one of the images with red bars.

              Are you REALLY saying you can't see what made the Apollo missions possible in the budget over the years? Are you REALLY saying when you look at the budget that you can't see what it took to made manned moon landings possible?

              Btw, the last supersonic passenger flight was in 2003 on board Concorde which first flew in 1969. Please point out how going from TWICE the speed of sound to less than the speed of sound is an example of technology going forwards :-)

              The USA and USSR were the first to build rockets capable of sending men into space in 1961. It wasn't until 2003 (42 YEARS later) that China became the third nation to achieve that thanks to help from Russia.

              NO OTHER COUNTRY has sent people into space on rockets that they've built! So if only THREE nations in HISTORY has ever built rockets capable of sending people into space, how can you expect other countries to have sent people to the moon when they haven't even achieved low Earth orbit yet?

              ​@Citizen of Earth - Actually I've already dealt with it, only I forgot this topic video blocks links and so you couldn't see it, so I'll repost a modified version of my previous reply (without the links);

              --------------------------

              Regurgitating easily debunked hoax claims doesn't make your point my friend :-)

              The petrified wood in 2009 was an error made by a Dutch *Art* museum who claimed a rock donated to them was from the moon, despite being warned in 2006 that it probably wasn't from the moon for the following reasons;

              1) That rock was given to the Dutch Prime Minister by the *US ambassador* in commemoration of the Apollo 11 astronaut's visit. The documentation didn't say it was from the moon.

              Link: Search Google for: *Fake dutch moon rock causes embarrassment for museum Dailymail* , and click on the first link found.

              2) It was given to the Dutch Prime Minister just 3 MONTHS after Apollo 11. The moon rocks as gifts to nations were given out by NASA a full ONE YEAR after Apollo 11.

              3) The Dutch Prime Minister's rock was completely unprotected. Whereas ALL the gifts of moon rocks given out by NASA to other nations were encased in a sphere of Lucite resin for protection and mounted on a plaque, stating where it came from.

              Link: Search Google *Images* for: *Apollo Moon Rocks Plaque*

              4) The Dutch Prime Minister's rock was big. The moon rocks given out as gifts to nations/states were tiny samples inside Lucite resin.

              So everything pointed to that rock NOT coming from the moon, the museum was warned it's unlikely to come from the moon, but they ignored the warning and displayed it as a moon rock just the same.

              Three years later, that museum had to face the embarrassment of finding out that the warning was correct! They even laughed about it afterwards.

              For more information, including the Dutch museum that the moon rocks from NASA went to, watch the following YouTube video;

              Link: Search *YouTube* for: *xNMnPkQZNjk* , and click on *Dutch Moon Rock Story Dead! FOUND!*

              Therefore the moon rocks given to the Netherlands by NASA are still where they've always been.

              And I proved the the rock given to the Dutch Prime Minister by the US ambassador was never said to be from the moon, that was the error made by an Art museum.

              I showed you exactly where the moon rocks given to the Netherlands are kept, still mounted on the plaque and encased in Lucite resin.

              So why the dishonesty? I never understand the hypocrisy of conspiracy believers going on and on and on about authorities lying and yet you're so willing to deliberately lie yourselves.

              Is it because you think your lies are somehow justified?

                  The Russians left two reflectors on the moon. They did it ROBOTICALLY.

                    Correct, with missions that were tracked, hence they didn't appear in secret or by magic, and they sit on top of rovers which are still there.
                    The Apollo reflectors were used within days of being placed on the moon's surface during Apollo 11, Apollo 14 and Apollo 15.
                    So if they were not placed there by the Apollo missions, then how did they get there when it would have been impossible to send unmanned missions to the moon in secret, much less to the Apollo landing sites?

                            @seigeengineno doubt at all? "Blue marble" was up 42 yrs. When questioned they admitted "no earth image from space" (read the confession "as people Expect things to look" is their m.o. put a replica up moved some clouds and thats the real deal? They get the 'astronauts' young via a no publicity IQ test. For indoc. Upper Eng. 10th gr. (no math) at 'good' State public schools. Is very forgettable, when offer comes hard to relate test to "You're invited to CapeCanav"(maybe elsewhere now)
                            . School does not know what test is for. Gotta call to fig. Out. 10-15 nationwide (on an irregular non sched.) These are the spokespeople admins and astroturfs. True believers if the initial training takes. Theyre NASA. And alt reasons (patriotism, securiy etc) are justified repeatedly, drilled into 15-16 yos. The Israeli twins lately in "hair never pulled straight down or anywhere but back and up but toothbrush flies willy nilly cargo planestation". Guarantee. Grads. Like the test, everything is forgettable - technique im unaware how works. Limited access, shruggy friend open attitude, no follow up, etc (probably). All the trust is from space fakery. All thr money is for other stuff. Its fed. but civilian (soon going to private sector because US Gov liable for fraud and damages). It aint tight knit high group of trained discipline. Its greedy goofballs and intel. I went. Left cuz ot was weird (wasnt physics and astronomy touted in brochure). Still believed all their bs. They dont conspire to trick - all the info is avail. (See legal liability above). The "myths' and "theories" are all true (the 'sciency" lies (no science used)conclusions sometimes wrong because assumption science is real. Space X gonna get NASA(money will be reason tho both are funded by us intel-propaganda budget - theyll just stop telling us its spent - 70m a day aint enough! "Muh too broke for moon but any day now any whoops later butvany day.". Tesla guy is a cypher and will take fall (-0 profit forever, scare mongers AI and pushes 'space real' and gets a horrible fake 'space live film') The lie is being unveiled Soon bevready. Pretty sure space Force is the set up for 'discovering' the lie. Satellites are on hot air balloons. We cant see beyond or travel out of atmosphere. Thats coming too. Astrophysics gravity are scams. Thus only a homeless bum beholden to zionists and a vegetable are official "geniuses". Both astrophysicists? Funny coincidence! Fathers of the Astrophys all have doubleted unique or mocking names and nothing but school texts confirm theirvexistence? Hm.

This "Everyday" channel is a great example of his gullible approach to a narrative of accepting everything some space authority has handed him. What a shame., and a sham to the public. Oddly, it does present great material who already know the moon landings were BS to begin with. Makes for entertaining material.

                                      I agree, there is no way that mirror still sends data. The concept of sending information via photons is way outdated by now, most materials don't even support the framework anymore. Nowadays, if you want to measure anything, you need to use 5G radiation, it's the only thing modern software is compatible with and has been purposefully designed to penetrate any material, including miles of vacuum.

                                    What happens when you use all of the same instruments (except for the lazer) and same distances with much weaker lasers? Will this have an effect on the time delay?

                                      No, it won't have any effect on time delay. You might not get any reflection at all visible from Earth though, as even highly focused light, like that from lasers, disperses quite a bit over these distances.

                                        1. Where is the blast crator under the luna module and why no dust on the feet of this module??

                                        2. how did they film the luna module blasting off from the moon in 1969??

                                        3. What network did they use in 1969 to send this video file 225623 miles back to earth??

                                        4. What power supply and transmitter was used in 1969 to send the video 225623 miles back to earth??
