        I never doubted it, it is much more interesting why our "play along" with the Americans, that they allegedly flew. What is behind this? what is the deal? in short ?????????????? some questions.

          And like a photo from the orbit of the moon on which the steps from the landing of Apollo are visible or a video where our "moon" flies in my opinion.
          And what about the radio signal that we caught from the moon (the conversation of the pilots, etc.)

          but you yourself answer this question, what was the leadership of the USSR that conspired with America, what did the Americans buy at the top of our country, and most importantly what are all these conversations of Leonov, Grechko, Sevastyanov, who stood by the mountain for the moon program .
          After all, the betrayal went so far as to ban flights to the moon and destroy the promising N-1, SPIRAL programs, you can take a fresh look at Korolev’s death, in this connection you can also answer such oddities as why Buran and Shuttle were so similar, perhaps these projects were developed together to divert forces from real promising flights, and when everything was ready, everything was turned off.
          In general, the Americans went to such revelations under the weight of evidence, the same Popov, Mukhin, Pokrovsky, Eremenko, Velor
          as well as other researchers of the American moon show. It’s not bad in the light of these revelations that we tell Putin to speak at the UN to finally expose American lies — this will be a revelation to the whole world who the Americans are and what their entire policy is worth.
          Now work is underway on the unpromising Angara project, which is no better than the old R7 and PROTON rockets, i.e. space games continue.

            Well, the conspiracy thesis has begun ...
            "They weren't there !!!!"
            Americans have done a lot of evil, I do not argue, but unconditionally believe the conspiracy theorists, the same Mukhin (who, by the way, called for a violent change of power in Russia (as in Ukraine)), and uses the "swinging flag" as evidence showing ignorance of the law of inertia ...
            Or the "missing soil" which in fact did not disappear anywhere, and the data of this study were published earlier than Luna-16.
            But I believe Chertok, Feoktistov, Keldysh more ... These are people who themselves worked on space. Constructor. The same Putin laughing . And they all laughed at this conspiracy.

                        Officially, only a stone from Honduras seems to have disappeared, it was then put up for auction in the black market.
                        But I noticed a list from more than a dozen countries where the soil was transferred. In kilograms, this is quite a lot. About 17% of the total soil was transferred and studied, the rest is stored under an atmosphere of nitrogen (we have the same thing, only helium is used). You can count, if you want, how much this is from almost 4 centners.
                        Why did I mention the chem. composition? Just not a single conspiracy supporter has yet explained the method of fake. After all, they give out soil, still. And if it is not, then it needs to be faked? But how? The supporters of the conspiracy have no answer to this.
                        "Dutch Stone" is a really interesting episode, not included in pivot tables. But the rest of the transferred (with protocols and photos) soil is a serious refutation of "soil that no one has seen."

                Stanley Kubrick Confesses To Faking The Moon Landings

                Posthumous Revelations of Stanley Kubrick
                Aayla Secura
                December 12, 14:21
                The other day, an allegedly dying interview with American director Stanley Kubrick was published, who in the year of his death said that he was the one who filmed the "American landing on the moon."

                http://yournewswire.com/stanley-kubrick ... -landings/ - стенограмма интервью на английском.
                http://aftershock.su/?q=node/356561 - по ссылке есть корявый машинный перевод

                In short, Kubrick actually confirms the old theory that there were no man-made flights to the moon, and the landing was filmed in the United States and the whole project is a grandiose hoax commissioned by the Richard Nixon administration, to which the director put his calloused hand and the scenery from the film " A Space Odyssey 2001 ".

                Naturally, disputes immediately began regarding the authenticity of this interview.
                1. According to the explanation of the interviewer Patrick Murray, Kubrick gave an interview before his death under the promise to publish it 15 years after his death and forced him to sign an 88-page non-disclosure agreement. There is a certain discrepancy, since Kubrick died in 1999 and then, in theory, the interview should not have appeared in 2015, but in 2014, although it is possible that 2015 was written in the NDA, but without seeing this document, if it exists, you can only guessing about this.

                  2. The video itself has already undergone various analyzes on Western resources http://www.snopes.com/false-stanley-kub ... -landings / and the interviewer has already been accused of using editing in the form and this is not Kubrick at all, and some actor or person very similar to Kubrick. The late director's widow stated that Kubrick did not give the interview. It is quite understandable that the authenticity of the recording must be undeniable for the given evidence to be recognized. The authenticity of the recording could seriously undermine the official version of the flight to the moon due to the authority of the figure of Kubrick as one of the greatest American directors. On the other hand, the falsifications in this video can severely hit the supporters of the theory that a person did not fly to the moon. It is not yet completely certain that the video is 100% genuine or 100% falsified. The video can equally contain the pure truth, the manipulation of one of the supporters of the theory of not visiting the Moon, the hoax of Kubrick himself, who decided to troll the whole world after his death, or a "cunning plan" with the release of a deliberate falsification, the exposure of which will hit the supporters of the conspiracy theory. Therefore, I will say that I am so careful about this revelation.
                  3. About Kubrick's involvement in the American space program associated with flights to the Moon, they wrote earlier, as part of one of the theories about what exactly the Americans showed instead of landing on the Moon and that Kubrick left "hints" in his films about his involvement in the project Apollo 11 .. It is possible that this video is just a development of one of the branches of the conspiracy theory, which originates from the United States, where soon after the official flight to the moon, voices began to multiply that there was no flight and this is all fake, that later and generated a huge number of supporters of this version around the world, including in our country.
                  4. Regarding the consequences of this video, it is unlikely that it will change anything in the already familiar "moon-racer" - whoever thinks that the Americans flew will think so. Those who think that they did not fly - the same. Here, as with other holivar topics, abstract truth has long been drowned under multi-layered explanations and refutations of inconsistencies, refutations of refutations, and the like. No matter how much in my memory I have not read many-page topics on the topic of evidence of a flight to the moon and its falsification, as a result of discussions, almost no one has ever changed their positions, continuing to insist on their favorite version. However, do not forget that in addition to idle conversations on the topic, it sometimes pops up at the official level, as was the case with the recent statements of the RF IC http://colonelcassad.livejournal.com/2238614.html, which questioned the fact of the US flight to the moon ...
                  5. Kubrick himself as a director was wonderful - many of his films, such as "A Space Odyssey of 2001", "Full Metal Jacket", "Path of Glory", "Dr. Stragelove or How I Stopped Being Afraid and Love the Atomic Bomb" like a real classic of world cinema, which looks great even after the past decades. The presence or absence of a role for Kubrick in the story of the flight to the moon is unlikely to change this attitude.

                    Nothing much will change in "Lunosrach", while proving (as well as refuting) the authenticity of the video is difficult.

    Characteristics and purpose; all the same, are not disclosed. Even the final orbit is not indicated on the website of the Ministry of Defense; however, the upper stage "Briz-M" was used; so it's a geostationary.

    On Wikipedia, the satellite is listed as a Harpoon, with a link to http://www.russianspaceweb.com/

    Cool device in the photo!
    My question is different ...
    I wonder (purely for the sake of interest) how much does the inscription "Proton-M" weigh, given the size of the letters?
    If this is a special paint, then probably 20-30 kilograms.
    Withdrawing 1 kg of orbit load costs about $ 10000.
    It turns out a million rubles empty in the load (for money) ?!
    I understand, pretty, but still ...

      The paint is not applied to the white top. But initially. No difference. Do you think there are completely stupid?

      I wonder (purely for the sake of interest) how much does the inscription "Proton-M" weigh, given the size of the letters?
      If this is a special paint, then a kilogram of 20-30

      It may well be not paint, but a glued thin polymer strong film. Of course, not 20 kg weighs, even taking into account the size.

      Regarding the falsification of flights to the moon. Director Murray interviewed S. Kubrick 3 days before his death in March 1999. He signed a 88-page non-disclosure agreement for 15 years after Kubrick’s death. The deadline has expired.
