Really, Im afraid your clutching at straws. Australia had one of the dishes that tracked the Apollo missions. Some of the lost tapes were also recovered here. Ive been to the company that did the work, theyre a small privately owned company that processes GIS and mining data so has lots of old machines and geeks who know how to use them. Not baby boombers either.
If you know anything about Australia, is that people can be a bit blunt and irreverant. Theres no way these old academics would cover up a scam like that. Theres no Ivy league here boys club here, no reason for them to continue the perpetuation of a lie.
