Then watch your own video first before you state anything crazy. Between 6:10 and 7:08 (when the rocket enters the cloud) the image is being changed 12 times! The video lacks the continuity that we have in Phil Pollacia's video.
Yes, Pollacia's video is continuous from launch until the rocket blows its way through the cloud. But there's something odd about it. The first stage burned out 2m 45s after launch, which would be about 6m 30s in the Pollacia video. The second stage engines burned invisibly. Yet in Pollacia's footage the engine glow remains strong after 6m 30s. This leads me to believe the footage may be slowed down.
So, this film wouldn't do, we simply don't know WHEN this cloud passage takes place. It could have been taken from a seuence one minute later and placed back in time in this video.
Well, the same sequence occurs in the Pollacia video and the one I linked. We can clearly see the engine plume is narrow, so it must be reasonably low in the atmosphere.
Also, the rocket speed during this cloud sequence seems to have been increased, but still, if you use this film to calculate the velocity you will see that it will be around 400 metres in 2 seconds, i.e. ca 200 m/s. Still not enough to live up to NASA:s stated 920 m/s.
According to the Apollo 11 Flight Journal Transcript (http://history.nasa.gov/ap11fj/01launch.htm), shortly after 1m 6s into the flight, velocity was 2195 feet/sec, which is about 670 m/s. Where did you get the 920m/s figure from?
Good try, but it didn't work.
Come on, you don't need sarcasm.
