"Moon plays": The moon was the Earth - Lies and Truth in the Atmosphere

12. The faked "space flights" of Alan Shepard and Virgil Grissom

from: Gerhard Wisnewski: Lügen im Weltraum [Lies in Space]. Knaur 2005

In the years 1960s "USA" had a difficult political position because of Sputnik working over the "USA". And at the same time Walt Disney and Wernher von Braun were propagating a "moon program" without knowing how it should be carried out in practice and without the technical knowledge. The engineers for the "space capsules" under leadership of Bob Gilruth all come from the board for remote controlled unmanned flying objects in Virginia.

To talk back to Gagarins first "space flight" (which had been a parachute jump) the military structured NASA answered with two airdrops. The "US" propaganda presents the astronauts Shepard and Grissom as the "first 'Americans' in space". The play with the truth - as it was made with Gagarin - is going on.

And for the whole time one has to consider that the "Soviet Union" was financed by "American" banks. The "USA" financed their own official enemy which was never an enemy but was only an enemy in the propaganda to have a reason for more armament projects.

beginning of 1961
"USA":The government does not want dead astronauts as the "Soviet Union"
The "Presidnet's Science Advisory Committee" (PSAC) of president Kennedy begins to study the Mercury capsules (Wisnewski, p.84), because the aim is that there will be no deads in space like in the "Soviet Union". The balance of the Mercury Redstone program indicates more and more that manned flights would be impossible because of the high failure rates of the Redstone rocket.

(In: Swenson / Grimwood / Alexander: This New Ocean. A History of Project Mercury. NASA publication-4201; NASA History Series, 1989, S.347; Wisnewski, p.85).

Kennedy is very worried about that the first human in an "American" upper atmosphere capsule could be a tragic hero and could die during the flight.

(In: Thompson, Neal: Light This Candle; N.Y. 2004, S.249; Wisnewski, p.85)

22 March 1961
"USA": The "solution" for a perfect flight of Alan Shepard seems to be found
Hugh L. Dryden, according to Wisnewski a "honoured man" of the "American" rocket technique, indicates during a conference in the White House that there would be "no unjustified risks" any more concerning the Mercury Redstone flights. But in fact every start of a Redstone rocket is more or less an unjustified risk until now (Wisnewski, p.85).

Suspicion: There is organized an unmanned Mercury Redstone flight with the claim Shepard would sit in the capsule, but the capsule will be empty (Wisnewski, p.85).

12 April 1961
"SU": Gagarin is presented as "first human in space" - the memo for a "moon landing" by Wernher von Braun for Kennedy

[Every thinking human with functioning eyes of a level of the fourth primary school can see from the Gagarin fotos that Gagarin is in a parachute suit and not in a space suit. But Kennedy does not mind].

The reaction in the "USA" about the alleged "first man in space" Gagarin who was only a parachute jumper is clear now: Now the hour of the moon plans of Disney and von Brown is coming. Now the propaganda work is intensified (Wisnewski, p.79). Kennedy is asking which counterstrike against the "Soviet Union" could be announced. Von Brown answers in a memorandum that the "Soviets" could only be defeated by a complete, manned moon landing [flight back inclusive]. A manned laboratory in the high atmosphere would be too less.

(In: Ordway / Stuhlinger: Wernher von Braun. Crusader for Space; Malabar 1996, S.170; Wisnewski, S.79-80).

But at this time a "moon landing" is a completely not unpredictable adventure (Wisnewski, p.81) [and a moon landing is impossible until today (2010)].

Kennedy wants to undertake all that the "USA" will not have to deplore dead astronauts. Kennedy thinks about a live television broadcast of the starting space vehicle "Mercury".

(In: Thompson, Neal: Light This Candle; N.Y. 2004, S.259; Wisnewski, p.85).

21 April 1961
"USA": Defeat on Cuba - desaster at the Bay of Pigs
The trial of the "US" militarists to occupy Cuba end in a great defeat. The propaganda damage for the capitalistic "USA" is enormous. And because of this "USA" cannot afford dead astronauts at all now (Wisnewski, p.85).

beginning May 1961 / short before Shepard's parachute jump
"USA": No anxiety from a Shepard parachute jump (propaganda says: Shepard flight)

Shortly before the Shepard flight the mood is changing. The President's Science Advisory Committee (PSAC) suddenly is confident concerning Shepard's flight (Wisnewski, p.86). Among others there is Edward C. Welsh, the manager of the National Aeronautics and Space Council, spreading an unshakable confidence. And he insists on the early date for the flight which will be a great success (Wisnewski, p.86).

But the Redstone rocket has not changed and it's balance says that almost 2/3 of the starts are launch failures. The rocket is not working reliably. For a manned flight the condition would be a long series of perfect test flights, but this condition is missing (Wisnewski, p.86). When there is a Redstone start nobody can say if the rocket will function or not. According to the statistics the answer is: Rather not (Wisnewski, p.86-87).

5 May 1961
"USA": Alleged official first suborbital "space flight" by Alan Shepard

Astronaut Alan Shepard is officially said to be the first "American" in an atmosphere ship ("space ship") in "space" (Wisnewski, p.86). Shepard is said having started in a Mercury space vehicle on a Redstone rocket from launch pad 5 at Cape Canaveral (Wisnewski, p.89).

The propaganda says it was a short flight, a suborbital flight in the high atmosphere (propaganda says: "space flight") wit a distance of only some 100 miles, and it was not at all an orbit round the Earth.

(http://www.lostcosmonauts.com/wom.htm; Wisnewski, p.86,89)

After 15 minutes and 28 seconds the flight is said to have ended by the landing capsule 302 miles from the launch pad, 100 miles in the North of the Bahamas in North Atlantic.

(In: Thompson, Neal: Light This Candle; N.Y. 2004, p.256; Wisnewski, p.86).

According to NASA Shepard is said having flown
-- 187 km high
-- 303 miles wide
-- 15 minutes and 28 seconds long (Wisnewski, p.89).

At the landing point already recovery helicopters of the aircraft carrier "Lake Champlain" are waiting. The helicopter takes the astronaut in a rescue ring with the capsule under him and bring both to the aircraft carrier (Wisnewski, p.86). After many propagandistic defeats this "space flight" is again a victory for the "USA" against the "Soviet Union". The "flight" is like a tranquillizer for the Ego of the "American" people (orig.: "Balsam auf dem Ego des amerikanischen Volkes.")

(In: Thompson, Neal: Light This Candle; N.Y. 2004, p.261; Wisnewski, p.88)

But according to the balance of launch failures with Redstone rockets there is even more the suspicion that the capsule was empty (Wisnewski, p.86).

[Suspicion of a parachute scenario:
Considering the great risk there is following suspicion:
-- first a capsule with Alan Shepard was put into a cargo aircraft to a height of about 10 km
-- in the state monopolized television of that time a rocket with an empty capsule was shown which had started earlier with success
-- then at the "right time" in the timetable the capsule with Alan Shepard was dropped out of the cargo aircraft
-- and by this Alan  Shepard and his capsule have landed perfectly in the sea].

If astronaut Alan Shepard was sitting in the capsule on the rocket which was shown in TV is not proved. There is always a cut possible from the inner foto to the outer foto. But what is sure is that President Kennedy claims the "success" for himself. Since this time propaganda and research are going hand in hand (Wisnewski, p.86).

"USA": Alan Shepard's triumph at Washington
Shepard's triumph ceremony at Washington with President Kennedy is a triumph for the whole nation. Kennedy and Shepard are passing 250,000 people (Wisnewski, p.88),

[with TV broadcast and mentioning the "flight" in the "American" history books etc.].

So, Kennedy gave his "answer" to Khrushchev to the Gagarin parachute jumper, because Shepard has landed in a space suit after all and not in a parachute suit. The N.Y. Times describes the jubilations at Washington as the greatest since the end of the Second World War 1945 (Wisnewski, p.88).

Now also the shares of the arms industry are rising, among others IBM and McDonnel Douglas etc. Now also the shareholders are satisfied [and it could be that also members of the "Soviet" regime are shareholders].

(In: Thompson, Neal: Light This Candle; N.Y. 2004, p.262; Wisnewski, p.262)

The NASA responsible for the "American psychological orientation"
From this moment NASA is responsible for the "American psychological orientation". According to John Pike (director of the Space Policy Project at the Federation of American Scientists) the main purpose of the NASA is to conduct the "American psychological orientation" of the "American" population:

"Concerning NASA the main purpose is mainly that we feel well to be 'Americans'." (Wisnewski, p.88)

So, NASA has not a scientific leadership, but is a manipulation machinery in terms of the "psychological orientation" (Wisnewski, p.88).

[It's known that also stock quotations are connected with this "psychological orientation"...]

"USA": Next flight candidate for a mercury capsule is astronaut Virgil Grissom
Grissom names his prepared space capsule like the "American" liberty bell at Philadelphia "Liberty Bell 7" (Wisnewski, p.89).

Mercury 2 mit der Kapsel "Liberty
                          Bell 7": Grissom steigt in die Kapsel.
                          Die NASA behauptet, dies sei der Einstieg zum

8 May 1961
"USA": Memo from NASA and McNamara for a "moon landing program"

A memorandum by the NASA administrator James E. Webb and the Secretary of State McNamara for Vicepresident Johnson to give to President Kennedy says that success in space would be the "symbol for the technological and organizational power  of a nation". So, Webb and McNamara propose to the President of the "USA" to make plans for "manned moon landings from Earth within this decade".

(In: Ordway / Stuhlinger: Wernher von Braun. Crusader for Space; Malabar 1996, p.171; Wisnewski, p.81).

25 May 1961
Kennedy's speech: Announcement of the moon landing program

Kennedy claims the world dominance by space:

"Now it is time to take longer strides--time for a great new American enterprise - time for this nation to take a clearly leading role in space achievement, which in many ways may hold the key to our future on earth."

(In: http://www.famousquotes.me.uk/speeches/John_F_Kennedy/4.htm; Wisnewski, p.81-82).

The Kennedy speech is opening all doors of funds for the moon plans of Disney and von Braun (Wisnewski, p.79). Because the technical quantum jump shall be performed within 9 years. This is an absolutely mad postulation. Kennedy knows his postulation is covered by his government, and doubts about the Gagarin flight are not permitted and are forbidden to be discussed (Wisnewski, p.82).

The contradiction of Wernher von Braun: Now the "moon" is coming first before a station in the atmosphere?
By the memorandum for Kennedy Braun gives up his own order now also officially to build an atmosphere station ("space station") first as a starting point to the moon. The safety of Braun to go for a "moon landing" directly without having realized an atmosphere station gives a strange and a non logic effect (Wisnewski, p.80).

Doubts of the astronauts concerning the moon project

Also the astronauts have doubts about a "moon landing" (Wisnewski, p.83). The astronauts are wondering how a "moon landing" should be realized (Wisnewski, p.88). Alan Shepard realizes during talks with NASA responsibles that "also the brightest and the best heads of NASA had not the slightest idea how to reach the moon", a distance of 250,000 miles (380,000 km).

(In: Thompson, Neal: Light This Candle. The Life And Times of Alan Shepard; N.Y. 2004, p.333; Wisnewski, p.83)

Alan Shepard means Kennedy has gone "mad".

(In: Thompson, Neal: Light This Candle; N.Y. 2004, p.269; Wisnewski, p.88)

NASA flight director, Christopher Kraft, has no idea. Fact is: Until May 1961 the Redstone rockets for manned space flights have a failure quote of 57 %: 20 of 35 testing starts have failed. For example: There is flying away the rescue tower before the start and the tower tears out the parachute of the capsule (Wisnewski, p.83) so the wind is blowing up the parachutes and the whole rocket is threatening to fall down (Wisnewski, p.83-84), and the technical staff has to think about to empty the tanks (Wisnewski, p.84).

(In: Thompson, Neal: Light This Candle. The Life And Times of Alan Shepard; N.Y. 2004, p.191-192)

The astronauts make their own thoughts if the plan for a "moon flight" would be a suicide mission.

(Thompson, Neal: Light This Candle. The Life And Times of Alan Shepard; N.Y. 2004, p.182; Wisnewski, p.84)

But the "USA" cannot afford any dead astronaut like the "Soviet Union" because "America's" astronaut Shepard and all other candidates are established as national heroes already before the flights, children and families inclusive. A launch failure or the death in the atmosphere would have a national depression effect (Wisnewski, p.84).

21 July 1961
"USA": Alleged official suborbital atmosphere flight ("space flight") of Virgil Grissom

Grissom has studied engine construction, space engineer and is test pilot (Wisnewski, p.97).

Grissom is said having started in a high atmosphere capsule (propaganda says: "space capsule") "Mercury" planted on a Redstone rocket from launch pad 5 at Cape Canaveral, like Alan Shepard before (Wisnewski, p.89).

Grissom is said having made an upright flight and nothing more, like Alan Shepard. According to the NASA propaganda Grissom is said having recognized
-- the Banana River
-- the Indian River
-- something which looks like a runway
-- West Palm Beach (Wisnewski, p.89).

Grissom is said having flown
-- 190 km high (compare the flight of Alan Shepard: 187 km high)
-- 302 miles wide (compare the flight of Alan Shepard: 303 miles)
-- 15 minutes and 37 seconds long (compare the flight of Alan Shepard: 15 minutes 28 seconds long) (Wisnewski, p.89).

According to Wisnewski this similar data indication of NASA (from: www.jsc.nasa.gov/history/mercury.htm) are not believable because flights which are this similar are not possible (Wisnewski, p.89).

The strange landing of Grissom in the sea - covered trial of murder?

After reaching the sea during the landing the capsule is opening from alone by a little blast (Wisnewski, p.89) but Grissom has not done anything or handled the safety lever because when the level would spring back there would be an injury on Grissom's hands. The capsule is opening without any deed of Grissom and begins to fill with water so Grissom has to safe himself into the sea with his astronaut suit. The rescue helicopter is first worrying about the capsule and leaves Grissom swimming. When Grissom reaches almost the capsule and the rescue ring of the helicopter the helicopter is suddenly flying away (Wisnewski, p.90). The pilot also cuts all ropes with the capsule and lets drop down the capsule. Only shortly before drowning astronaut Grissom is rescued from the sea.

(In: Zornio, Mary C.: Detailed Biographies of Apollo I Crew - Gus Grissom; NASA History, Updated 3 Feb 2003; Wisnewski, p.91).

The press greedy for sensations hat it's propaganda fotos from an alleged suborbital flight and Grissom "in space". But probably it only was an airdrop as in training, respectably with Grissom it was more than training...

Mechanism to open the capsule from the outside?
Another mechanism to burst open the capsule is with a lever from the outside when a fighting diver had opened a little flap and had torn on a T formed holder. But there has never seen a diver coming from a helicopter who had sprung into the sea and had approached to the capsule (Wisnewski, p.91).

What the helicopter pilot Jim Lewis said
The pilot Jim Lewis claims later that there was a "problem with the engine" indicated by a warning light (Wisnewski, p.90-91) and the pilot Lewis allegedly had to prevent that the helicopter would fall on Grissom.

(In: Zornio, Mary C.: Detailed Biographies of Apollo I Crew - Gus Grissom, NASA History, updated 3 Feb 2003; Wisnewski, p.91).

Add to this the capsule had been full of water and was too heavy for the helicopter, pilot Jim Lewis maintained (Wisnewski, p.91).

On the rescue ship USS Randolph no engine problem of the helicopter can be found.

(In: Newport, Curt: Lost Spacecrafts. The Search for Liberty Bell 7; Burlington 2002, p.86; Wisnewski, p.91)

NASA puts the blame on Grissom
NASA puts the blame on Grissom and maintains he had burst open the capsule before it was time, despite of the proof that there was no hand injury from the lever. NASA generally says Grissom had "bungled" it (Wisnewski, p.91).

[One has to consider that Grissom is a studies mecanic, an airplane engineer and test pilot (Wisnewski, p.97). How should it be possible for an airplane engineer opening the door too early before the rescue helicopter is coming? This does not seem to be possible, but the lies of the NASA responsibles are very well possible...]

At the end NASA believes something had provoked the extern opening mechanism. The cover can have been lost during the opening of the parachutes and a parachute rope can have become entangled on the T handle and by this the opening mechanism could have provoked (Wisnewski, p.92).

since 1967
Grissom memorial
After the Apollo 1 accident Grissom is celebrated as "America's second man in space" also in a memorial at Spring Mill State Park.

[The impossibilities and contradictions seem not to be "interesting" for the "US" authorities].

In 1999 only, there is a precise question coming up:

20 July 1999
Grissom's capsule from the "flight" of the 21th July 1961 is coming to the surface - without heat protection shield


Map with the place of discovery of
                      "Liberty Bell 7", found off Great Abaco
Map with the place of discovery of "Liberty Bell 7", found off Great Abaco Island.
On 20 July 1999 Grissom's capsule "Liberty Bell 7" is coming to the surface (Wisnewski, p.92).

The detection team is financed by private TV station "Discovery Channel".

With robots the capsule is found and lifted to the surface. The corrosion is removed within 6 weeks. The capsule is disassembled completely, every part is cleaned and at the end the 20.000 parts are reassembled. The capsule stands in the museum.

According to the website personal items from Grissom are found:
-- a survival knife
-- a cigarette butt
-- shark repellent
-- 45 dimes from a roll Grissom brought on board as souvenirs.

Some aluminium parts were totally destroyed by corrosion so they had to be replaced by new aluminium parts.

[So, there is the question: How can survive a cigarette butt over 30 years in salty sea water, when aluminium parts are totally destroyed by corrosion? And Grissom was non-smoker...]

According to Wisnewski there is officially found:

-- documents
-- money
-- Grissom's personal parachute
-- Grissom's safety belts
-- a pencil (Wisnewski, p.92).

[There is a question how paper documents can survive that long in salty sea water. The documents must have been made of metal].

Also the cause for the opening of the capsule is officially not found, and also the blasted airlock not either. 


"There was no report about the external mechanism. The blasted airlock was not found."

(orig.: "Über den Zustand des externen Auslösemechanismus wurde nichts mitgeteilt. Die abgesprengte Luke wurde nicht gefunden." (Wisnewski, p.92)

And another thing is curious: Any remnant of the heat protection shield is missing though the rest of the capsule is in a good condition.

(In: Newport, Curt: Lost Spacecraft. The Search for Liberty Bell 7; Burlington 2002, p.173; Wisnewski, p.93)

Now NASA is inventing all possible claims who the heat protection shield made of beryllium could have dissolved on the sea's ground in a depth of 500 m. But beryllium is a especially non-corroding material:
-- with a great stability against damp air
-- the high gloss polished surfaces are in fact not changing by the time
-- beryllium has no reaction with water, even not during red heat
-- beryllium is oxidizing with air only up from 600°C.

(In: Rutherford: Lexicon of the elements; www.uniterra.de/rutherford/ele004.htm; Wisnewski, p.93).

So, there is the question how on the sea bottom 5,000 m under the sea's surface could have been electrolytic processes with beryllium (Wisnewski, p.93).

The question about the cigarette butt: It was a plant worker?
During the restoration process a plastic cup and a cigarette butt were recovered. The cigarette butt and the plastic cup could not have come from Grissom himself because he was non-smoker. The restoration team believes they were placed in the capsule during the manufacturing at the McDonnell plant. A plant worker leaved the items between the linings of the capsule and by this they are said having survived 38 years in the salty sea water.

(Jim Winnings; In: http://mailgate.supereva.com/misc/misc.industry.quality/msg04095.html)

The question about cigarettes, coins and the documents: Souvenir coins? - document's survival unrevealed

The capsule was analyzed at the "Kansas Cosmosphere and Space Center". The report from www.space.com says:

<Theyve had a few surprises turn up amidst the relics. Among them - a cigarette butt and a plastic cup. It is "highly unlikely" the articles were Grissom's, said museum director Max Ary. Someone who helped build or prepare the spacecraft for flight probably left them behind, he said.

The team, scouring through the 50 pounds of muck that was removed from the spaceship, also found 52 Mercury-head dimes. Ary thinks they were gathered in a roll of paper and stashed in the capsule as souvenirs -- not for Grissom, but for workers, and maybe even other astronauts. Many of the dimes have initials and other notches in them presumably to serve as identifying features.

Arys favored finds are Grissoms world map, his checklist (on which the astronaut carefully recorded the positions of dozens of switches inside the capsule until he was interrupted by the abrupt departure of his door) and the metal cap that covered the hatch detonator.>


[And now there remains the impossibility that documents made of paper shall have survived in the salty sea water for 38 years. How is this possible, stupid "USA"?].

                        instead of clearing the contradictions, the
                        capsule "Liberty Bell 7" makes a 3
                        years tour through the towns of the
                        "USA", and Grissoms brother, Lowell
                        Grissom, is presenting the capsule...
3 years tour for the capsule

But instead of clearing up all contradictions, the capsule "Liberty Bell 7" makes a 3 years tour through the towns of the "USA", and Grissoms brother, Lowell Grissom, is presenting the capsule...

The suspicion: Airdrop from a cargo aircraft with Shepard and Grissom

Because beryllium has no reaction on the sea bottom there is the urgent suspicion that the capsules never had any heat protection shield. So there is another fact that a capsule without heat protection shield cannot have flown in the high atmosphere with a perfect landing at the end because it had died down during re-entry into the dense lower atmosphere. So the suspicion that Grissom's capsule without heat protection shield had been dropped by a cargo aircraft becomes more and more real. The same is with Alan Shepard's "flight" (Wisnewski, p.93).

Shepard's and Grissom's "flights" are missing in the flight calendar of the Encyclopaedia Astronautica

The suspicion of the airdrop is confirmed by the flight calendar of the Encyclopaedia Astronautica. This proud Encyclopaedia maintains having listed all starts of Redstone and Jupiter rockets. But on the days of the alleged "flights" of Alan Shepard (5 May 1961) and Grissom (21 July 1961) any entry for a start of a rocket is missing (Wisnewski, p.93). Instead there are entries for 24 March 1961, 18 May 1961, 6 July 1961 and one entry in August [1961].

(www.astronautix.com/lvs/redstone.htm (31.3.2005); Wisnewski, p.94).

[This means that there was no flight of a rocket in the days of Shepard and Grissom and all is a big lie. In September 2006 both flights are registered in the list].

The evidence for a lie scenario on the state's TV about Shepard and Grissom - parachute airdrops

The contradictions concerning the both flights of Shepard and Grissom are this strong that the following scenario could be possible:
-- on the monopolized TV was shown a film about a perfect start which was before
-- Shepard and Grissom were in a capsule in a cargo aircraft and were dropped over the landing point, so the capsules were going down with parachutes normally (Wisnewski, p.93).

[This way it had been in training always before, and by this the similar flight data would be possible...]

Gagarin atmosphere flight was a lie - the atmosphere flights of Shepard and Grissom were also a lie

Compared with Gagarin the "USA" has concealed the lie a little bit better: The astronauts weared space suits with helmets and had no parachute suits without helm or without emblem.

All in all the procedures of the first "space flights" were very similar. Also on the "American" side the illusion is quite clear when on the day of the alleged flight from the spaceport at Cape Canaveral has not even listed a start of a rocket. This comparison of the flight data can also be performed of boys of the fourth class of a primary school.

Also in this case the journalists have absolutely failed and they believed all without putting or reporting the slightest logic question. According to the stupid journalists the lexica are wrong until today.

The really proof for the lied flights is the capsule found in 1999 without any heat protection shield. This is the confirmation of the illusion. The missing protection shield is not discussed in the "USA"...

This is NOT a conspiracy theory, stupid journalist, but these are facts.
