Yesterday was the 40th anniversary of the moon landing, humankinds greatest achievement according to some, a cold war dick swinging exercise and colossal waste of money to others. And to a few die-hard conspiracy theorists a giant hoax filmed in a Hollywood studio.
I just mention the latter because it is bound to attract in a few days some members of The Church Of Scienceology cult to explain how silly, gullible and unscientific we are for believing such nonsense. Their comments are stupid but the slapdows are memorable.
As there is no suggestion anyone at Boggart Blog believes it such people only prove that (a) people who call themselves scientists cant read and (b) neither can they get their heads around the scientific fact that Boggart Blog is a comedy blog which nobody with any sense would take seriously.
Having made that point we move on to address an important question. Given the Apollo 11 mission did land men on the moon and that those men were in transit a considerable time, what happened to the missions blue ice?
Our science expert Matt. E. Mattick has been investigating this and calculates that given the distance and low gravitational force in space, shallow trajectory and prolonged orbit the Apollo astronauts blue ice should be landing just about AAAAAARRRRRRRGGGGH!
AND HRE FOR AFFICIONADOS is a completely new take on the hoax theory. I have never seen this one before today Moon Landings were real, what we saw on TV was faked by Stanley Kubrik
