Moon Rocks Retrieved by Remote Control (MRRRC)

This is still an amazing accomplishment, at least 6 time, but is not landing a man on the Moon.

Keep on Truckin...
 

A popular saying and songs by and during the 1969-1972 Apollo missions
Grateful Dead - the astronauts would be dead from bolts of hundreds of Roentgens through their heads
Eddie Kendricks - it was a Temptation to use Grumman's remote control LEM to fake the landings
Keep on truckin' those Moon rocks back to convince the scientists and Soviets.

Even kids had Remote Control technology in 1969

for LEGO, toy trucks, and ... lunar rovers

If Lego and Mattel could do it, so could Grumman and NASA

9 Apollo missions could bring the reported 842 pounds of Moon rock back to Earth
Apollo 8, 10, 11, 12, 13, 14, 15, 16 & 17 included a LM going at least to Moon orbit.
It is possible that the LM for Apollo 9 also went to the Moon for rocks, making it 10.
Grumman's LMT along with a Rover could bring back 9 x 100 pounds = 900 pounds
The unmanned Ascent Stage could take off with the rocks by remote control..

Perpetuating the Perfect Hoax

NASA knows that some day, the Van Allen Belt problem will be solved and men will land on the Moon.
NASA has declared the Apollo sites to be No Fly Zones, preventing close inspection forever.
The LMT Descent Module looks just like the one claimed to be used for the Apollo manned landings.

Step Description Graphic
1 Covert "Plan B" crew works to develop Unmanned Lunar Excursion Module (ULEM) in case manned Plan A is impossible.  Grumman's Lunar Module Truck (LM Truck)  replaces the regular LEM
2

ULEM is covertly substituted for the LEM in the Vehicle Assembly Building

3 Saturn V takes off,  stage 1 is discarded
4 Stage 2 separates, takes remainder into Earth Orbit, then is discarded  
5 Command Module (ComMod) separates and remains in Earth Orbit  
6 Stage 3 takes ULEM to Moon with 1/2 of its fuel
7 ULEM separates and lands on the Moon with Descent Module (DM)

8 ULEM Ascent Module (AM) gathers lunar samples with scoops and drills

9 Rovers for Apollo 15, 16, 17 get additional samples and return to ULEM-AM

  

10 ULEMAM takes off into Moon orbit, DM is left on Moon
to be "proof" of the Moon landings.
Close up inspection of the Apollo sites will never be allowed "to preserve history".

11 ULEMAM rendevous with Stage 3 which has been orbiting the Moon
Grumman's LM Truck
12 Stage 3 propels ULEMAM back to Earth orbit, then is discarded or sent into the Sun  
13 ComMod rendevous with ULEMAM (optional)  
14 Lunar rock and soil samples are transferred to ComMod Capsule  (optional)
There is no proof of this - suspiciously no videos of this happening.
 
15 Capsule with astronauts (and possibly Moon rocks) separates and begins Earth re-entry  
16 Capsule parachutes to Earth with Moon rocks - possibly landing in Antarctica
ULEM-AM is destroyed during re-entry, or contains explosives to destroy the evidence.
17 Moon soil samples are taken from Capsule and given to scientists to study  

Note: Apollo 13 ULEM probably did land on the Moon and returned rocks and soil, to add to the collection to given to scientists for inspection.

By the time people actually get on the Moon, NASA had time to put experiment apparatus in place.
The Apollo sites will be reserved sites to be untouched for "historical purposes".  
No one will be allowed to go close enough to find out the ULEM and Lunar Rover were driven by remote control.

 


Apollo LM Truck - by Grumman


http://www.astronautix.com/craft/apotruck.htm

The LM Truck was an LM Descent stage adapted for unmanned
delivery of payloads of up to 5,000 kg to the lunar surface in support
of a lunar base using Apollo technology.  The LM Truck would make
precision landing using radio landing beacons prepositioned by the
lunar base staff.

The Truck would be accompanied by an Apollo CSM on a purely lunar
orbital mission.  Alternatively, two trucks could be delivered in a single
unmanned Saturn V mission, with a partially-fueled Apollo Service
Module being used for the lunar orbit insertion maneuver.  Items added
to the basic descent stage: Navigation and guidance system (126 kg),
stability and control system (49 kg), reaction control system (250 kg),
communications (21 kg), ECS for equipment (58 kg).

The LM Truck concept used a modified LM descent stage as a Lunar
Logistic Vehicle.  The LM ascent stage was removed and replaced by
a cargo platform.

Unmanned LEM Truck Hypothesis

Men remained in Earth orbit as the LEM went to retrieve rocks from the Moon

Problem: The photos of the Astronauts on the Moon have been determined to be a fake.  However the rocks brought back have been positively identified as Moon rocks by many top scientists.  How can we reconcile this?

Solution hypothesis:  The walks on the Moon were faked.  Unmanned Lunar Modules landed on the Moon, retrieved rocks and soil, then returned them to the Earth.

Even if a LM Descent Module is actually on the Moon, it could have been a remote controlled Apollo LM Truck.
http://www.astronautix.com/craft/apotruck.htm
Its remotely controlled Lunar Rover could have left tire tracks
A remotely controlled Ascent Module could have brought back bona fide Moon rocks.

Variations of the LM Truck were built by Grumman. The project was allegedly cancelled in 1968.
Or the Truck became classified, in order to leave a Descent Module, and bring back rocks.

Once NASA can figure out how to get through the Van Allen Belts of deadly radiation,
and truly get men on the Moon, the Apollo "landing" sites will probably be restricted areas,
to give time them to walk around making foot prints, and place the ALSEP experiments

Did the Chinese verify the Apollo Landings?

BEIJING, Feb. 6 (Xinhua) -- China on Monday published a full coverage map of the moon, as well as several high-resolution images of the celestial body, captured by the country's second moon orbiter, the Chang'e-2.
The map and images, released by the State Administration of Science, Technology and Industry for National Defence (SASTIND), are the highest-resolution photos of the entirety of the moon's surface to be published thus far, said Liu Dongkui, deputy chief commander of China's lunar probe project.
The images were photographed by a charge-coupled device (CCD) stereo camera on the Chang'e-2 from heights of 100 km and 15 km over the lunar surface between October 2010 and May 2011, according to a statement from SASTIND.
The resolution of the images obtained from Chang'e-2 is 17 times greater than those taken by the its predecessor, the Chang'e-1.
If there were airports and harbors on the moon, the Chang'e-1 could simply identify them, while the Chang'e-2 would be able to detect planes or ships inside of them, said Tong Qingxi, an academic from the Institute of Remote Sensing Applications under the Chinese Academy of Sciences.
The scientists also spotted traces of the previous Apollo mission in the images, said Yan Jun, chief application scientist for China's lunar exploration project."

Note that there is just one sentence in this article, with no photos released.

The Chinese are seeing the Descent Module of the remote controlled Lunar Module Truck built by Grumman to return rocks from the Moon to convince scientists and the Soviets. The astronauts remained in Earth orbit safely below the Van Allen Belts.
