Computer graphics chipmaker Nvidia simulates Apollo 11 landing on moon

Lighting Simulation Offers More Proof of Moon Landing

September 26, 2014

"Many conspiracy theorists who believe the Apollo moon landings were an elaborate ruse point to an iconic photograph of Buzz Aldrin that they claim could only have been taken using an artificial light source. Turns out they were right, but, as a new digital reconstruction of the Apollo 11 landing site by computer graphics chipmaker Nvidia proves, that artificial light source was not from a movie studio soundstage but Neil Armstrong’s spacesuit."

...Every epic moment in modern history inevitably spawns a tangled web of conspiracy theories, and the Apollo moon landings are no exception. From the moment astronauts Neil Armstrong and Buzz Aldrin set foot on the lunar surface on July 21, 1969, some believed it was all an elaborate ruse staged by NASA on a Hollywood soundstage in spite of the overwhelming evidence to the contrary...

...Once the three-dimensional simulation was constructed, the engineers added in the sun as the sole light source and then integrated the reflected light from the lunar surface and spacecraft. However, they found the image still didn’t look quite right. “There was some additional light source that was just missing,” Daly said.

As it turns out, the conspiracy theorists were correct that an artificial light source illuminated the famous photograph of Aldrin. Only it wasn’t a studio light, but the man taking that photograph—Armstrong. “We found a clip of videotape that was shot from the other side of the ladder,” Daly said. “There is a huge glowing bright white light. And as we analyzed that video a little more we realized it’s Neil Armstrong himself. The bright white spacesuit that he was wearing reflected all that sunlight off of him and back onto Buzz Aldrin so essentially Neil Armstrong himself was a light source in that scene.”

What is limb lengthening surgery?

Hi! I understand this is kind of off-topic but I had to ask.
Does running a well-established website like
yours take a massive amount work? I am brand new to blogging
but I do write in my journal every day. I’d
like to start a blog so I can share my experience and thoughts online.
Please let me know if you have any ideas or tips for brand new aspiring bloggers.
Thankyou!

I have been browsing on-line greater than 3 hours as of late, yet I
by no means discovered any fascinating article like yours.
It’s pretty value enough for me. In my opinion, if
all website owners and bloggers made excellent content material as you
probably did, the net can be a lot more helpful than ever
before.
