(Response #5 to a blog entry on Bad Astronomy.)
I predict a major malfunction of LRO. Silence is an easy cover for lies.
Japan recently crashed its Kaguya Lunar Orbiter on the surface of the moon.
Despite Japan being the leader in camera technology, Kaguya, strangely, did not carry a camera with sufficient resolution to photograph Apollo landing site remnants.
This week, the Americans will launch the Lunar Reconnaissance Orbiter from Cape Canaveral whose main mission is to silence moon hoax conspiracists. It is scheduled for a four-day journey to the moon whereupon it will conduct a one-year mission to survey the moon. The LRO is allegedly carrying a camera with ample resolution to photograph Apollo landing site remnants.
Although several lunar orbiters have been sent to the moon by the United States and other nations, strangely, not a single orbiter since Lunar Orbiter 5, sent to the moon by the United States in 1967, has carried a camera with sufficient resolution to photograph objects the size of Apollo remnants. Unfortunately, in 1967 there were no alleged Apollo remnants yet on the moon.
One of the pillars of the scientific method is independent verification. If Apollo was a NASA lie, the same people that lied are doing the verification. Sad.
