BTW... I met and to some extent know Armstong and Cernan. I have no doubt that we went to the moon. I personally have heard Cernan address the doubter's his conviction is the same as a father defending his daughter's honor.
If we had "faked" going to the moon... would we have done so good of job?! That's my opinion.
And some people seem to not realize that if it were fake, the Soviets would have gleefully debunked it. They were certainly able to determine where the communications were coming from. They knew we got there.
I do use a digital device in my photographic pursuits when necessary.
When someone rags on me for using film, I use a middle digit, upraised.
The astronauts used Kodak color film that was coated on special thin base so that they could get more exposures / roll or magazine full. The film was pretested in vacuum at low and high temperature to assure quality in spite of the possibility of losing some of the volatile materials due to the conditions found on the moon.
“Photography is a complex and fluid medium, and its many factors are not applied in simple sequence. Rather, the process may be likened to the art of the juggler in keeping many balls in the air at one time!”
