When the Russians successfully sent the first manned rocket into space on April 12, 1961, there was panic in the USA. That’s why they decided to send their own astronauts into space. Less than a month later, on May 5, 1961, it was announced to the world that American cosmonauts Alan B. Shepard and Virgil Grissom reached an altitude of 190 after a flight from Cape Canaveral, Florida, as part of the Mercury 3 mission km, landed about 486 km from launch near the Bahamas Islands in the Atlantic.
This would be the beginning of the American triumph in the conquest of space. Washington Post investigative journalist Mark Phillips describes his investigation in the form of a novel in Joachim Volker’s book. The book, published in German, is entitled: The Apollo Lie – Were We Really on the Moon? Many facts speak against it. Mark Phillips interviewed Donald O’Leary, chairman of the Scientific Advisory Board who was involved in the Mercury mission in the early 1960s. 50% of Redstone rocket launches were false launches.
In reality the whole thing was staged. The successful earlier launch of an unmanned rocket was shown on television. This is the photo above. The capsule with Shepard or someone else in it was brought over the target area by a Lockheed C-130 and then dropped using the parachutes. You couldn’t see that Stepard was on board. Just later on the ship and without any equipment.
Two months later, on July 21, 1961, “another Mercury 4 rocket flew into space.” This time a cosmonaut, Virgil Grissom, was “on board.” After being thrown into the sea, the capsule simply sank. In 1999 it was recovered and transferred to the Cosmosphere Museum in Hutchinson, Kansas, USA. The capsule did not have a heat shield necessary for spacecraft. It is necessary to protect living people from excessively high temperatures, which are mainly caused by atmospheric air friction. The element beryllium is used to build such a shield. Virgil Grissom died in the Apollo 1 accident on January 27, 1967. Shepard, on the other hand, became commander of the Apollo 14 mission – one of several that reportedly landed on the moon.
