He complains that I rotating the image without telling him. This
from the guy who still hasn't acknowleged that he changed comparison images between posts #19 and 21
First of all, let's get one thing straight - I most certainly did
acknowledge that my comparison images changed between posts #19 and #21. The images were accompanied with the text below...Post #19
The image I posted is the one on the right, with an image first posted in this thread by Count Zero on the left.
Below are two stills from the video. The left side still shows the first timestamp and the right side still shows the Earth as filmed within this first segment.....
The time for each still capture from the online video is also included.
The above times are 0:14 and 2:48 respectively.
The next two stills show the second timestamp and Earth as filmed within this second segment....
The time of capture for the stills above are 18:36 and 21:26 respectively.
I noted the origin of every image in each of my posts, whether as a single image, or combined into a pair.
And I also posted the orginal, unaltered video grab of Earth, and noted that I rotated it 90 degrees to create my subsequent image.
Countzero, you've falsely accused me of not acknowledging the changes to my images between two posts, while only admitting that you had rotated your image after I pointed it out. Anyway, enough about that.
The times from the Network Controller's Mission Report do not match the actual timestamped TV transmissions several ways.
The first TV transmission is timestamped 198:01:15 TO 198:01:30 GMT
, while the Mission Report records the time as 17/0004Z - 17/0017Z
The Report states a start time 1 hour and 11 minutes BEFORE
the actual start time! And the duration
of the transmission is 2 minutes less than the actual duration. Also note that the final release time is 12:29 GET, almost two hours
after the time you noted below the video grab image of 10:32 GET. Hardly what one could call a "live", or "almost live", TV broadcast!
The second TV transmission is timestamped 198:23:31 TO 198:23:54 GMT
while the Mission Report (assuming the third is the correct match) records the time as 17/2331Z - 18/0005Z
So the Report has the same start time, but a duration time 11 minutes longer
than the correct duration time. There is no release time indicated, either.
The suggestions of alternative conversions don't work. If they had converted to BST instead of GMT; or from EST to GMT, instead of from EDT to GMT, it would still not match up with the video timestamp. We know the discrepancy can't be resolved by using any alternative conversions, because none of them can account for the extra 11 minutes.
The Report has a Timeline on page 1, showing the correct GMT LO......
...so the subsequent events, recorded throughout the Report in GMT, should also
be correct, one would assume....
Another NASA source for the timeline....
Uh oh! Now they say the first TV transmission was from 00:04 to 00:20 GMT, three minutes longer than the Report says, and one minute longer than the actual timestamp on the video! Even worse, it also corroborates the Report start time, which is over one hour BEFORE the actual start time! history.nasa.gov/SP-4029/Apollo_11i_Timeline.htm
There are serious
discrepancies in the first TV transmission times. The authentic timestamp contradicts two official NASA reports. There are likely other reports that would confirm this is not just a random case of "simple human error".
I'll address the other issues next post....
