moon hoax not

“It demands a deep and abiding faith in things you can never know. It’s like you need to cling to your belief system with all your might against the overwhelming evidence of your own rational mind. And some people do. What’s dangerous about that is that it blinds you to the real conspiracies that authorities are perpetrating on you right now. As we speak. Things that are a lot more important than whether some guys went to the moon.”

Comments Off on Space Shuttle

Not fixed until 2007?! “Historically, the Shuttle was not launched if its flight would run from December to January (a year-end rollover or YERO). Its flight software, designed in the 1970s, was not designed for this, and would require the orbiter’s computers be reset through a change of year, which could cause a glitch while in orbit. In 2007, NASA engineers devised a solution so Shuttle flights could cross the year-end boundary.”
