Was It Only A Paper Moon? - James M. Collier (1997)
James M. Collier: "In 1994, Victoria House Press in NY received a manuscript titled "A Funny Thing Happened On Our Way to the Moon". A brilliant lay physicist who had studied Bill Kaysing's theory that NASA faked seven Apollo moon shots, author Ralph Rene, wanted to publish.
Since I had written the investigative report "Votescam: The Stealing of America," they asked me to investigate Rene and his manuscript to determine the credibility of both. "I read Kaysing's book 'We Never Went to the Moon'", Rene told me, "and although it was compelling, it lacked technical details, a grounding in physics that would convince scientists, beyond a doubt, that America never went to the moon."
Rene was positive that NASA had pulled off the hoax of the century. "NASA didn't have the technical problems solved by 1969 when they launched the first moon shot," he insisted, "but I believe they couldn't admit it or they'd lose thirty billion dollars in taxpayer money."
I read Rene's manuscript and although I understood basic physics, I couldn't immediately assure the publisher that Rene's assertions were scientifically accurate. Least of all, I couldn't assure them that we didn't go to the moon. I needed time.
So what began as simple research turned into months at the NY Public Library, the Library of Congress in DC and the US Archives. Surprisingly, precious little had been written about the Apollo missions except standard "puff" pieces in the New York Times and the Washington Post.
Then my research turned to Grumman Aircraft in Bethpage, NY. Grumman built the Lunar Module (LM), that unwieldy looking craft that never flew on Earth but supposedly landed safely on the moon six times. I asked for blueprints detailing the scientific thought behind its design. Did it run by computer? If so, who built the computer? What made Grumman engineers think it could fly?
Grumman told me that all the paperwork was destroyed. I was stunned. The LM historical paperwork was destroyed!? Why!? They had no answers. I turned to Boeing Aircraft in Seattle. They built the Lunar Rover, the little car that NASA claims traversed the moon on Apollo missions 15-16-17. NASA claims it was transported to the moon in a five-foot high by six-foot wide, triangular corner section of the LM. (The LM's bottom section was basically a tic-tac-toe design with nine sections. Five sections were squares with the four corners being triangles). But my research indicated that the Rover was at least six feet too long to fit into that corner compartment, thus making it impossible to ever get to the moon.
Next was the National Air and Space Museum in Washington and the Johnson Space Center in Houston where I video taped an actual LM. Here research indicated that the crew compartment and hatches were too small for the astronauts to actually enter and exit."
