Another thing that has bothered me for a very long time has been the Apollo program. Now, as a lover of physics, and one degree in it, not much, but more than most… I was perplexed, and impressed, that during the programs televised everything was in realtime, even the conversations with Houston from the moon. There should have been some lag time, hell, there is lag time when using satellites for the internet, the latency (lag) time is so bad that it is not suitable for games like NASCAR.
The former “moon walkers” do not even like to talk about it, even seem embarassed when their heroic efforts are made mention of.
Perhaps this might explain a few things.
