Moonfail: Video of Astronauts Falling on the Moon

Let’s celebrate the end of this hump day with a fun video of astronauts falling down on the moon. What? It’s defense-related — the Apollo astronauts were ex-fighter pilots.

    These falls caused major anxiety at NASA. I had the job of reviewing these films….and some were films 25 years after the missions in order to better understand load-bearing and fall recovery mechanics for advanced suit designs group at NASA. The pressure spike in these suits upon falling was pretty high and caused some major puckered moments at mission control amongst the suit pukes.

    • Prodozul

      Advanced suit design? So did NASA have plans to go back to the Moon or would these suits have been for going outside on the ISS?

    • mgvillablanca

      Yup one tiny hole in that suit and pssst they were gone.

    lol@hiding the truth in plain sight…. must be hard to see it with those koolaid colored glasses on however.

    • Paladin

      Yeah, because to make it all believable, we went to the trouble to build incredibly huge and insanely expensive rockets. Because that’s what you do when you need to desperately fool the world – spend an incredible huge fortune on a big fake thing requiring thousands of people to work night and day toward this fraud. It’s so unbelievably obvious to me now, thank-you so much.

      • Thunder350

        Hey, we spent ALOT more money on other insane stuff. Lets see.. 14.7 Trillion and counting on insane stuff.

        Now I myself believe we did go to the moon, but what we were shown isn’t the “true” footage. Just like most things the government and media “feeds” us.

      • Those incredibly huge and insanely expensive Saturn rockets were built as launch vehicles for military spy & weather satellites, and after the Apollo missions were used to launch Skylab, for example. Development of rocket technology was also required for ICBMs – there was something called the Cold War going on after all.

        It is a fallacy to state that all those costs were solely from Apollo; therefore your argument that men were put on the moon because it was to expensive not to have put men on the moon does not hold up.

      All the so-called “evidence” ever presented to support the notion that the Apollo missions were faked (or that “we were never told the true story”) has been repeatedly and severely debunked.

      If you suddenly find yourself believing the “moon-landings-were-a-hoax” nonsense, this is an excellent indication that you are in need of either a) prescription medication or b) a life (or possibly c) both).

        How can you debunk the theory that we were only fed certain snippets of the moon landing recordings? It happens all the time today with military ops. Or the best example of all.. all these “closed door meetings” in D.C.

        • Thomas L. Nielsen

          I’m not debunking “the theory that we were only fed certain snippets of the moon landing recordings”, although I find that improbable, considering how important publicity was for those missions. After all, the US wanted people to see that they’d beaten the Russkies.

          And if there are parts of the mission records that were not released, I’d guess that had more to do with personnel using profanity or discussing last month’s Playmate than any more sinister motives.

          What I consider debunked (thoroughly) is the “evidence” presented (over, and over, and over again) to “prove” that the moonlandings were faked.

      Of course, we are all living in the Matrix.

    Amazing! Not one idiotic “The Apollo missions were faked!” response! Maybe people are getting better educated! Or maybe Guest lol is going to exhibit the usual room temperature IQ response to Apollo 11. The usual idiots say they either didn’t go, or they died there.
    Anyone with a bit of sense knows that not only did we go, but if we hadn’t, the USSR would have made us look like idiots for trying to lie about it. We are talking 1969, people!
    Truth be told, though, it may be low G, but if I fell in vacuum, I would be a little concerned.

      “Amazing! Not one idiotic “The Apollo missions were faked!” response!” – Sadly, you spoke too soon (see above).

      “Truth be told, though, it may be low G, but if I fell in vacuum, I would be a little concerned.” – Personally, I’d be a lot concerned :-)

      Because it’s kinda hard to make the same stupid claim for all six times astronauts landed there.

      By the time Apollo 17 landed the loons probably realized it was real.

  • Howe

    I would have been more careful…

  • haha

    1st to belly-flop on the moon!!!

  • KG

    Jeebus. Moon rocks don’t have their edges filed down by millions of years of wind, water, and rain like Earth rocks do. I can understand why the suit guys at NASA had a lot of pucker moments watching that.

    Imagine the buzzkill of spending the three day return trip with your buddy’s corpse sitting right next to you.

    Ha Ha Gravity Still Sucks!

    Maybe he was just hammered? LOL

  • USAF

    what it is this site becoming?

  • There’s no danger if you fall over on a Nevada film lot.

    Paradise Ranch was so named as a tongue-in-cheek reference to the Movie Ranches that sprang up in the Californian studio zone through the 1920s to ’40s.

    And while some brainwashed stooges still try claiming that the cost of building rockets in order to fake the Apollo missions would have been prohibitive, they conveniently ignore the fact that Saturn V rockets were developed before Apollo to launch military satellites. Costs nothing to lie about the payload, and no reason to let thousands of workers in on the lie.

    • crackedlenses

      OK, so we didn’t actually go to the moon; does that mean we lost the space race, or did the Ruskies fake too?…..

    • Thomas L. Nielsen

      “….the fact that Saturn V rockets were developed before Apollo to launch military satellites.” – And the source for that is?

    Oh for gods sake…
    We’ve got aerial footage of the moon landing sites from the lunar recon orbiter.
    You can see the tracks left by the astronauts all around the descent stages.

    Those descent stages couldn’t have gotten there any way other than the saturn 5’s they were supposed to have been launched by.
    And something made those tracks and left huge tire marks driviing those lunar rovers, so your two options are either men or AMBULATORY ROBOTS from 40 years in the future.

    • asdf

      you forget the best proof of the actual landing: russian telescopes. if there was something hoax about it, they would be glad to publish it in open press.
