Since Neil Armstrong, the first man on the moon, passed away a few days ago, I thought I’d post the following NASA article which was released about 10 hrs ago.
The following is a comment with the username un4g1v3n1
“NASA is still seeking to develop technology to safeguard humans for spaceflight into radiation-laden space within and beyond the Van Allen Radiation belts, and the protection provided by our magnetosphere.”
“Until that technology is available, our exploits into space will continue to be well below the beginning of radiation belts so intense, Van Allen called them a SEA of DEADLY RADIATION. What we know from the effects of radiation on Earth teaches us that Apollo was nothing more than mere FANTASY.” (end of comment by username un4g1v3n1)
According to the you tube vid below, every space ship, whether Russian or American with humans aboard, beginning in 1961 to the present, all have maintained altitudes of one thousand miles well below the Van Allen Radiation Belts. The only space craft to go through the 25,000 miles of those belts was the Apollo.
Question: If it’s NOT possible to presently pass through these deadly radiation belts, how was it possible for the Apollo to pass through and land on the moon without any danger to the astronauts in 1969? They didn’t have the technology to do so, as the following article seems to indicate. (do you notice anything wrong with that pic?)
Here’s the NASA article.

NASA launched two satellites into space on Thursday to explore the belts of radioactive particles orbiting the Earth, in a mission that is the first of its kind.
The twin spacecraft will spend the next two years exploring the so-called Van Allen belt that is filled with highly-charged particles and at times poses a danger to communications, GPS satellites and even human spaceflight.
“Scientists will learn in unprecedented detail how the radiation belts are populated with charged particles, what causes them to change and how these processes affect the upper reaches of the atmosphere around Earth,” said John Grunsfeld, associate administrator for NASA’s Science Mission Directorate.
“The information collected from these probes will benefit the public by allowing us to better protect our satellites and understand how space weather affects communications and technology on Earth.”
The satellites — buttressed with protective plating — blasted into orbit from Cape Canaveral Air Force Station in Florida aboard an Atlas V 401 rocket.
NASA’s latest mission comes just weeks after the space agency landed its $2.5 billion Mars Science Laboratory and Curiosity rover on the surface of the Red Planet, breaking new ground in US-led exploration of an alien world.
