Probably. The propulsion mechanism means that the craft could traverse the hazardous region of space much faster. The shorter time it takes to get to other places means it could skip solar flares too.

NASA are now saying they could manage to get the Apollo astronauts through "The Van Allen Belt" by detonating a nuclear explosion, thus minimising the danger of radiation exposure. Bloody first time I've heard that one (apparently, they never did use that idea). URL

Why not? They were still on Earth after all!

They did do exactly that around 1962 and found they caused even more radiation than had been originally.

Did you know that the US Government tried to blast a hole in the belt 248 miles above Earth in 1962? During Operation Starfish Prime a Megaton Nuclear Bomb was used to try and force an unnatural corridor through the Van Allen Belt... Unfortunately, the radiation levels actually got worse, not better. What they created was a third belt that was 100 times more intense than the natural belts, and as estimated by Mary Bennett in 'Dark Moon - Apollo and the Whistle-Blowers, by 2002 this artificial zone will still have 25 times more radiation than the other 2 belts. There is no agreement to how wide these radiation belts actually are. Dr James Van Allen, the discoverer of the belts estimated that they were at least 64,000 miles deep, but NASA say they are only 24,000 miles deep. Each Apollo craft spent approximately 4 hours within the belts.

Don't forget the partial eclipse this Friday morning 8.45.

That'll give the decorators an excuse to start late on Friday and no doubt they'll piss off early. Probably be there long enough for their bait (lunch break).

(Friday = POETS day - Piss Off Early Tomorrow's Saturday)

It makes more sense to build a lunar base beneath the surface rather on top of it.
You will be full protected from meteors,radiation and temperature fluctuation.

There appears to be some ready made sub lunar caves dotted around the moon.

I wonder if they have already done this skipman. It may also be possible to dig even deeper into those craters, and make tunnels to link with other craters to use as short cuts to get around the Luna surface!

Knowing the Americans, they will probably use the whole of the Luna surface into a ready-made golf course - they already have the bunkers!

HOW DID THE LOONYNAUTS TAKE A PEE OR A DUMP?

This one has bugged the crap out of me because the explanation we were given in 1969, that they wore a big diaper inside their space suits, just doesn't hold water.

You see, whilst the Apollo 11 mission lasted about 8 days, by Apollo 16 the mission lasted over 11 days. If a man craps say one pound (about 500g) of turd a day and pees/sweats out about 3-4 pints or 2 litres, where on earth did all of that stuff go?

Water cannot be compressed and they hadn't any type of vacuum tube ( I know that nowadays we're told they did but back then we were told they didn't) in which to stick their member to urinate whilst en route to the moon so it seems the only answer is what NASA told us, back then; they peed and dumped into their huge diapers. After 10 days or so this means their diapers were holding around 5 gallons of pee and 10-12 pounds or 5kg of poo. Regardless, would YOU (men) want to lob your best pal into a vacuum tube? If in any doubt, try the Hoover. NO - DON'T!

Have you ever seen the size of a gallon tin of paint? Can you imagine having five times that amount of pee and sweat, not to mention another gallon of crap all in one nappy?

Maybe I'm missing something but it's not my mind and it's not my memory. NASA most definitely explained the problem with the big diaper story all those years ago.

Personally, waving flags and dodgy shadows aside, I think it's a load of shite we've been asked to take in.

Oh yes. One explanation I read on the outerweb is that, due to zero gravity, they didn't need to have a bowel movement! Well! We've been asked to take in some bullshit over the years but that one really is a crock!

EDIT: Neil Saunders (Neil Saunders???) examines the matter here: http://www.madsci.org/posts/archives/2006-01/1138467020.As.r.html

I heard somewhere that the astronauts' urine was recycled afterwards as drinking water (I would have personally labelled my urine). As for the crap, I'm not sure how they could have disposed of one pound of crap per astronaut per day? Maybe the astronauts spent most of their time on the Moon making mud pies!

Possibly, when the astronauts crapped in their spacesuits, it got moulded into a brick shape (hence, shitting a brick) and then freeze dried for deodorizing and easy storage.

I've heard rumours that some people really don't believe they really went to the moon!

Really!

Logic would suggest they shat into plastic bags, then dumped their dumps out the door.....
They simply can't have just used their spacesuits without clearing them out, surely?? Doesn't bear thinking about.

Really!

I was just playing with the idea of the astronauts having problems going to the loo and trying to get to the Moon at the same time in that Apollo crate - sanitation would be the least of their problems.

For many years I gave up the idea of man going to the Moon with the so-called Apollo program, in hindsight, the impracticalities are far to great to take the whole thing seriously anymore. It has become a joke and NASA is stuck for answers when they are pushed with practical questions to prove their claims.

If man has been to the Moon (and is still going there) then I believe it is through some secret program - with real spacecrafts.

Crate

Fancy calling such an amazing piece of state of the art technology a crate!

This, I'll have you know, was allegedly taken by a certain Mr Armstrong and it allegedly got him and his alleged mate to the moon then allegedly back home again.

(Anyone seen the sellotape? Or the LADA badge? Or was that the Russians?)

We may be considering adding new members on a "block basis". We will collect new member requests and then introduce a new batch. The new memebrs will be identifiable by a prefix in their username as a "new member". Anyone considered to be trolling or causing trouble will be immedialtey removed. To be put on the list please email richard@richplanet.net AND GIVE YOUR US NAME, A USERNAME, PASSWORD. I would imagine a new batch of new members will be added in January 2012.
