É mesmo preciso ver para crer?



Bom, provavelmente estas fotos do Lunar Reconaissance Orbiter vão colocar uma pá de cal nas teorias conspiratórias sobre as Apollos.

NASA's Lunar Reconnaissance Orbiter, or LRO, has returned its first imagery of the Apollo moon landing sites. The pictures show the Apollo missions' lunar module descent stages sitting on the moon's surface, as long shadows from a low sun angle make the modules' locations evident.

The Lunar Reconnaissance Orbiter Camera, or LROC, was able to image five of the six Apollo sites, with the remaining Apollo 12 site expected to be photographed in the coming weeks.

The satellite reached lunar orbit June 23 and captured the Apollo sites between July 11 and 15. Though it had been expected that LRO would be able to resolve the remnants of the Apollo mission, these first images came before the spacecraft reached its final mapping orbit. Future LROC images from these sites will have two to three times greater resolution.

Como eu dizia para o Takata, os físicos estão acostumados neutrinos, buracos negros e planetas extra-solares, de modo que "ver para crer" é substituido por "evidências indiretas mais teoria plausível são suficientes para crer".

Bem-aventurados aqueles que não viram e creram na Apollo 11...
