The Van Allen belts put out radiation that can be extremely detrimental to a persons health and could even lead to death. NASA itself has claimed it can't get through the radiation belts.


Now that NASA has tentatively acknowledged that the Van Allen Belts can't be passed, how is it we were able to land a man on the moon?

>the answer may surprise you

New evidence shows that robotic drone type machines may have been used inside the Apollo astronauts suits while the astronauts remained safely in low earth orbit. Apollo 9 tested that astronauts could survive in low earth orbit below the 1,000 km mark where the Van Allen Belts begin.

>The clunky mechanical engineering of the time combined with the human publics unawareness of how gravity on the moon effects objects differently than on Earth lead to this kind of Qausi-hoax to be implemented.

>It was implemented not for some nefarious reason but rather to protect our astronauts from dieing the minute they entered the belts, haven't you ever wondered why they keep the International Space Station so low in orbit?


Does anyone have more info on this?

I'm not saying we didn't land on the moon but the radiation from the Van Allen Belts would simply be to much for a human body to take but a mechanized American could have survived.

How in the fuck did we have advanced enough robotics to make bipedal human-sized robots in the 60s?

What is happening today? Conspiracy theories are becoming true one by one.

It's not that the Van Allen belts can't be passed - it's that people and electronics can't linger in them. The Apollo astronauts each spent an hour or two at most in the belts as they passed through them. They got a little irradiated, but not all that much. The ISS by contrast is constantly orbiting the Earth in more or less a circular orbit, and astros stay up there for 6 months at a time or longer, so they couldn't put the station in the belt or else they would get fried due to the rad exposure.

It basically boils down to duration of exposure.

The Apollo missions were super risky when it came to radiation. If there had been a particularly bad solar flare aimed at us, they pretty much would have died of radiation poisoning.

Also, did you even read your own links? The nasa.gov page you linked to has this to say:
>Two donuts of seething radiation that surround Earth, called the Van Allen radiation belts, have been found to contain a nearly impenetrable barrier that prevents the fastest, most energetic electrons from reaching Earth.
>that prevents the fastest, most energetic electrons from reaching Earth.

They're talking about the belts being a barrier to some kinds of charged particles, not to astronauts.

No, Apollo 9 tested manned operations of the lunar lander.

Where do you find this bullshit?

Alright, listen dude... it's very simple...

In 1986, to prevent global environmental catastrophe, the very best of the world's robotic technology was sent to Ukraine, to assist in the rapid cleanup of the Chernobyl nuclear disaster. These robots were useful for only so long, before they went haywire as a result of the effects of radiation on their circuitry. Time was of the essence, and it was ultimately necessary to send human "bio-robots" onto the roof of the destroyed reactor, to clear away the radioactive debris.

OF COURSE they suffered health problems. They still do. Many of these guys are STILL ALIVE.

The lesson of Chernobyl is very much a part of what inspired our drive to improve our robotic, and microprocessing technology.

In the 1960s, America was focused on beating the Russians to the moon. The sophisticated robotic machinery you are describing simply DID NOT EXIST in 1969. You idiot.

Yes. If you're keen to learn more about the history of robotic space exploration... you can ask any kid on his high school's FIRST robotics team.

The real truth is, it is scientifically impossible to travel beyond LEO without suffering severe exposure to farts.

This is a well known fact.
The only reason Apollo astronauts made it through is via improvised CO2 filters and extra pine-tree-air fresheners. Look it up.

That's true of any space mission, really. Imagine how the guys in Gemini felt.

>>55949 they must like their electrons fast and energetic then...
because how else are aliens going to contact us?
anyway's I was originally thinking they need clear space for experiments, and forgot about the Van Allen's.
