Sorry, Neil Armstrong. Boffins say you may not have been first life-form to set foot on the Moon


Re: But NASA still haant found....

They still have the A11 flight journal.

You can read it on the NASA websites although they move it around a lot. Use Google.

It gives distances from earth too, with timestamps.

When you read it you'll notice that they spend around 11 hours (there + back) in the Van Allen distances of earth. With a 90 minute (IIRC) orbit that's impossible to miss the belts, so they'd be fried.

The project Orion's one (unmanned) flight into a slice of Van Allen belt was done with the cabin camera switched off 'to protect it from radiation'.

So how did Apollo do it? How did they not get sick? How did the film not fog? Because they didn't go.
