Three new minerals were discovered in the rock samples collected by the astronauts: armalcolite, tranquillityite, and pyroxferroite. Armalcolite was named after Armstrong, Aldrin, and Collins. All have subsequently been found on Earth.

Apollo 11

Apollo 11 lunar module.jpg

Main article: Apollo 11
...Armstrong walked 196 ft (60 m) from the LM to snap photos at the rim of Little West Crater while Aldrin collected two core samples. He used the geologist's hammer to pound in the tubes – the only time the hammer was used on Apollo 11, but was unable to penetrate more than 6" (15 cm) deep. Two types of rocks were found in the geological samples: basalt and breccia.[MSM 11]

Soviets claimed to have tracked the landing of the "Eagle" and the giant leap by Armstrong live from Moscow. This is physically impossible, as these moments were allegedly taking place when Moscow was on the other side of Earth, away from the Moon.[R 1]

  • Apollo 11 "The Eagle" "landed" at 20:17 UTC (=15:17 US CST, 16:17 EST, 13:17 PST, 21:17 BST, 22:17 CEST) on Sunday, so everyone could see it, the whole weekend could be filled with media propaganda and people have something to talk about in the office/on holidays next day, reinforcing the myth...

  • Just 4 months (!!) after Apollo 11
  • Much less attention, "boring", people were not watching it, even though it was in "dark" November northern hemisphere TV time...

Apollo 13

"Earth" from "Apollo 13" back to Earth; Gaia: this can never be a photo of Earth

Main article: Apollo 13

"And so it is that on April 11th, 1970, Apollo 13 blasts off with Tom Hanks and a couple of somewhat lesser known actors on board, but unlike the first two missions, this Apollo spacecraft fails to reach the Moon and instead drifts about for the next six days with the crew in mortal danger of being forever lost in space! Now that gets our attention! So much so that when three Vietnam vets hold a multi-city press conference in New York, San Francisco and Rome on April 14th, attempting to publicize the ongoing Phoenix Program in which they have participated and have firsthand knowledge, nobody can really be bothered with paying much attention. It's hard to be too concerned about the fate of Vietnamese villagers, you see, when Tom and the boys are clearly in trouble." - Dave McGowan (2010) - Wagging The Moondoggie, p.26[R 2]

Apollo 14

Main article: Apollo 14

"Shepard and Mitchell made their lunar landing on February 5 in the Fra Mauro highlands – originally the target of the aborted Apollo 13 mission. During the two lunar EVAs, 94.35 pounds (42.80 kg [=14, on Apollo 14] ) of Moon rocks were collected, and several scientific experiments were performed. Shepard hit two golf balls on the lunar surface with a makeshift club he had brought with him. Shepard and Mitchell spent 33​1⁄2 hours on the Moon, with almost 9​1⁄2 hours of EVA."[MSM 14]

  • ...televised back to Earth, the camera operated by Worden.[MSM 15]

"Another controversy surrounding the Fallen Astronaut statuette that Scott had left on the Moon, arose later. Before the mission, Scott had made a verbal agreement with Belgian artist Paul Van Hoeydonck to sculpt the statuette. Scott's intent, in keeping with NASA's strict policy against commercial exploitation of the US government's space program, was for a simple memorial with a minimum of publicity, keeping the artist anonymous, no commercial replicas being made except for a single copy for public exhibit at the National Air and Space Museum commissioned after the sculpture's public disclosure during the post-flight press conference. Van Hoeydonck claims to have had a different understanding of the agreement, by which he would have received recognition as the creator of a tribute to human space exploration, with rights to sell replicas to the public. Under pressure from NASA, Van Hoeydonck canceled a plan to publicly sell 950 signed copies."[MSM 15]

A15555

"The rock is a 9.614 kg (21.20 lb) olivine-normative basalt. It is named after mission commander David Scott, and it is the largest sample returned to earth [sic] from the mission, as well as the most intensively studied. It was collected by Scott on the rim of Hadley Rille, at station 9A. """Lunar""" sample 15555 is a coarse-grained, porphyritic rock with rounded olivine phenocrysts (1 mm) and subhedral zoned pyroxene phenocrysts (0.5-2 mm) set in a matrix of poikilitic plagioclase (up to 3 mm). """Lunar""" Sample 15555 Station 9A."[MSM 18]

Feather and Hammer trick

  • Gaia: "This must be an old vaudeville traveling circus magic trick. Not necessarily with a hammer, so hard to find in old books (if those tricks even got described in detail, many stayed secret), but this smells on all sides like an old Trick By The Voodoo People."
