    This is a load of crap it was nothing at all to do with money, they never went back to the moon because they was told not to go back to the moon by the aliens that have been on there for thousands of years which N.A.S.A knows this so this video is a load of crap, this is a bullshit video it has nothing to do with money and never believe anything N.A.S.A tells us. i will never subscibe to this bullshit channel all lies

    👎🏼... ? Who & why?

    Population concentration, each living creature has a magnetic field, fields like people interact, large enough concentrations create their own field. There is nothing we can do lol because people already know the answer and are unwilling.

    I smell lot of jet exhaust at work. Its much more cleaner than diesel engine smoke. You can breath the jet exhaust without any problems unlike diesel exhaust that is even hard to inhale. We even used kerosine to cure sore throat and to wash tar contamination.

    Rather than going back to the moon NASA should invest in a manned mission to Mars.

  11. Sheep Dog

    Avoid unwanted commercial. Real video starts at 2:29 . I knew a British-narrated video was going to be biased pro-British. Even though the Brits dare compare themselves with American military forces they should get over the fact they they are not ruling the seas, the air, nor land engagements anymore.

    Would have still preferred the F-35C rather than the B version for the new carriers.

  14. Tom

    So because UK doesn't have the money or expertise to run nuclear powered carriers so they come up with a laundry list of delusional things, such as the negative environmental impact of nuclear reactors, to convince themselves that conventional power is just as good. Is the UK trying to conduct low carbon emission wars now? LMAO

  15. Per Bengtsson

    Luckily enough none of the dreaded lunar dust smeared any of the landing gear feet of the Apollo itself. One would think a lot of dust would have been pushed around thrusting the module down for a smooth landning. But no, clean as a whistle. It’s a miracle!

    almost bullshit about history 3:12 That's 181 series(こだま on this video)! France learned the AC electrification from Germany after wwii. Japan learned and refered the France's AC electrification system. Japan wanted buy and wanted use in test France's train, France wanted sell a lot. The negotiation has end at fail. Japan didn't use the techs directly, used a originally developped indirect system, after that 181 series(with common railway) ran, not shinkansen. The idea of Shinkansen is begining since while end of wwii, Official development term is 1959 to 1964 (hurried for Olympic). 181 series opened 1958(110 km/h) Shinkansen opened 1964(210km/h) TGV opened 1981(260km/h) 3:41 Imperial Japan's Ministry of Railways also had planed the "bullet train" as the map, and established a research group(1939-1945). the org's name had and used "kansen" in these names, and called in various name at ministry/fakemedia/engineer etc, "shin-kansen" was the one. The org's plan and Shinkansen plan are different, but several tunnels & courses were reused.


    Guys, this is true, but remember there are like 20 harrp s. 1 or 2 in most countries. And the Satan Telescope, They all do the same thing, tho they do other functions like search for signals in the skies. So when all them compile beams in 1 concentrated area, wala, what yall think it can do. Thanks. Notice he said that at the end and just ignored what I am saying. Put 1 and 1 together tho.

    Time to throw you a curve ball. What if we do away with the entire concept of Gravity as a separate force ? What if 'Gravity' as we know it is not an actual force - but a _pseudo-force_ ? What if this pseudo-force is a consequence of electromagnetism ? As strange as this may sound -- it's the sort of thinking that might actually help to shake up the paradigm & perhaps even help us uncover 'Anti-gravity'.

    1. ann onn

      Pretty easy to disprove: it does not interact with electromagnetism. For example, standing in a Faraday Cage blocks electromagnetism; it does not block gravity. You might say that we can't measure a small effect in that example, but - seriously - it's just an example. In every single experiment, right down to the quantum level, gravity does not interact with electromagnetic force at all. It *is* - in a sense - a "pseudo force". But it's not electromagnetic. The basic concept you are suggesting, though, is unifying the fundamental forces. That's absolutely a key part of current research. See " Grand Unified Theory", "Theory of everything", and string theory.

  31. Kristian Helgesen

    Funny how all other technology evolve, except the space program...they lost it...😂😂😂 Yeah right....

  32. silas kuira

    You've hit the nail on the head. We don't even know what gravity is. But at least we know it's a wave because it obeys inverse square law of propagation. Also we have approximated it's speed from observation of large bodies in space interacting (comparable to the speed of light). Another clue that should be looked into is that it affects only positively-charged objects i.e all elements of the periodic table, dark matter and black holes. Basically everything except electrons... Also quite simply gravity is a vibration that have a constant frequency. If two bodies creating waves of the same frequency and amplitude, those waves interfere with each other in a destructive manner resulting in a weak force of attraction towards each other. These vibrations/oscillations are always at the atomic level. For man to replicate those oscillations matching the frequency and amplitude exactly, maybe materials such as quartz can be deployed and fine-tuned...

    1. ann onn

      Gravity affects electrons.

    to bad we still haven't gotten it done,we can't get through the firmament!!!

  34. Todd Hendrickson

    You should look at doing a vid on the AGC showing the many inputs it needed to preform to enter earth orbit on a equatorial orbit than changing direction to exit earth on northern polar orbit to hit the thinnest parts of the van Allen belts then realign for a lunar trajectory. Then the same for return to earth. It seems that between ground based computers and the on board computers there would be many course corrections to navigate through the thinnest part of the van Allan belts. One would think the route normally illustrated was very efficient with minimal course corrections were used but this according to NASA was not the case. They needed to navigate around the densest parts of van Allan belts for crew safety. Managing fuel with all those course corrections must have been mind numbing to squeeze every last drop out efficiently. To do this the AGC was A truly incredible system far superior than what we have today hands down don’t you all think.

    The crazy part is, there is no reason for a total eclipse to even be possible. It's an astronomical marvel that the Moon, Earth and Sun just happen to be the correct distance apart for a total eclipse to form with the corona of the sun visible. Amazing!

    I have definitely not created an anti-gravity device and it doesn't work at all, I assure you.

  41. ALPHA 276

    Awnser:revert to launch

  42. Dr Logiq

    My favourite is the one at 11:30 , because of the awesome effects you can see as the exhaust plume changes colour and makes this weird electrical-looking plasma. Second favourite is at 13:18 , as you can see the sheer force of the ignition followed by the nozzles vectoring inwards, and then the clamps disengage and the thing just lifts up like it's nothing! Of course I like a lot of other shots, the separation of the Apollo booster in space and the long shots SpaceX have been doing recently where you can watch from a rocket's POV the entire journey up into space and back down to Earth. I'm so glad they stick cameras on these things, as you said, you get to see things that normally no human would be able to safely observe with their own two eyes, and it's always the most awesome parts of a launch!

    1. Get fly wheel. 2. Create a gravity shield and cover one side of the wheel. 3. You then have a perpetual motion machine.

    1. ann onn

      @flashkraft Yeah. I agree. To be honest, my answer was mostly an excuse to paraphrase from a TV show called "Red Dwarf".

    2. flashkraft

      @ann onn Yes I know but they were talking about fringe ideas about anti-gravity in this video. Who knows maybe we will discover a free lunch one day like the one described above. Don't like our chances though. The universe does have a habit of disappointing.

    3. ann onn

      A superlative suggestion, with just two minor flaws. One: there is no such thing as a "gravity shield", and two: there is no such thing as a "gravity shield". Now I realise that, technically speaking, that's only one flaw; but I thought it was such a big one, it was worth mentioning twice.

  50. Jarrold Bates

    Stupid concept. Sleep in space for years. Geezus

    Hahaha. The QE is an old transport ship that we gave them out of pity and they put a wooden road on it, maybe even a cobbled road. I bet one American coast guard ship could sink the QE and every ship in the task force with ease. I bet a WW1 bi-plane could shoot down every UK pilot.

  64. Tepid Tuna

    I love the reaction of the scientific community to some concepts... The more they react the more likely it is to be real and they're protecting it (for whatever reason). A comment like "Ants are aliens with massive intellects" would be just ignored by scientists, so why do many scientist go "nuts" about leading edge concepts? Money and the interruption of their "competing research"? Just look at how David LaPoint was "shut down" on YT by angry scientists who threatened him enough for him to take them seriously. I've been following the work of Eugene Podkletnov and Ning Li for over 20 years. There's certainly something interesting going on IMHO. What, IDK !

    1. ann onn

      Such a comment would be ignored *if* you did not have any credible evidence. That's because all evidence (such as DNA) suggests that ants are terrestrial in origin. If you had evidence to suggest they were not, that'd be great, and scientists would love to know about it. If you don't have evidence to support the claim then yes, you will be ignored like a guy in the corner shouting that he's Elvis. All evidence suggests that Elvis is dead - a lot of people claim they are Elvis, but without evidence, it's not worth paying them attention, other than to offer mental health assistance. If Mr. LaPoint has invented a perpetual-motion machine, why doesn't he simply show evidence? Bizarrely, the thousands of others that make that claim similarly show no evidence. Significantly, I'd also like to know why Mr. LaPoint claims to work at CERN. That's one hell of a commute from his home in California, and nobody at CERN has ever heard of him. Oh, but I suppose that's all part of a huge cover-up, right? :-)

  65. David German Duck

    amazing video, what if you have a paper and a pen and make a bore in the paper with the pen, making a communication in between and say to the paper there is no bore, maybe antigravity will actuate like this, also there are some patents papers ready for antigravity. Would like to see a review about on what is going! thanks

  66. Patrick Brookings

    The conventional propulsion method is obviously way cheaper to build and maintain. I also think it's rather funny and hypocritical to focus on being 'environmentally friendly' when we are dealing with warfare, duh. What's next, to develop environmentally friendly bombs and missiles?

    They are going nowhere.... It’s 2019 now it’s not anymore 1969 when it was so easy to trick all the world. They are not going to land on the Moon or Mars. Moon is just a light Mars is not a planet It’s just their imagination and same time feeding our brains with propaganda.

    The UK carrier doesn't have arresting equipment. So what if the sea is too rough to land vertically? Does the F-35B have a short enough landing if the deck pitched and it touched half way up? Or would it just have to hammer it off the ski jump again?

    1. Ben

      With an arresting gear you're still going at high speeds and are much more vulnerable to a pitching deck, vertical landings allow you to line up and time you're landing a little more. During testing in 2018 were still operating aircraft while close to a hurricane and managed.

    Aircraft carriers are vital if you possess colonies overseas like the UK does. You have to be able to project air power. However, if we take the Falklands War for example, if a carrier were sunk in that conflict it would have been game over. It is crucial to be able to protect the carrier. And unfortunately, the UK fleet has been cut back so much since the Falklands, we do not have the amount of ships to screen the two carriers properly. God help us if we get into another conflict overseas

    Gravity is mass trapped in a magnetic force like if you compress air it gets heavy gas compress into matters mass if you remove mass decomposed air gets lighter no mass no gravity I the earth mass is under a state of compress from the sun magnet force and its self magnetic force that for gas in denser and denser matters gas atoms to water atoms to cristal atoms can you lift the oceans can you lift the air . Air under pressure is a resistive force the earth is spinning centripetal force of moving gas molecules lift an empty scuba tank less gravity full the scuba tank more gravity

  92. Duane Bettger

    It was killed when Congress shot down the building of a real space station, instead of the cobbled together, separate connected units that were launched individually by many rockets. Without the station the shuttle had lost it's original mission. It was to also cut down of space debris that is currently increasing, by upper stage rocket modules and parts thereof. By reusing the shuttle, it would increase load launched, inable satellite repairs instead of satellite replacement, and provide space station replenishment, crew transfer, and space stationary build. This guy is full of shit.

    As a design engineer I think this is just BS - if something was build 50some years ago and you have the original documentation for it, it can be certainly build with the modern technologies. As well it can be easily redesigned in modern 3d cad software and improved without a great effort from a team good engineers.
