On p. 280 of Dark Mission, discussing the Apollo 10 mission, Hoagland & Bara wrote:
"While the spacecraft was theoretically fully capable of landing on the moon, inexplicably, it was not given the capability to do so."
There is, in fact, nothing inexplicable about this. Snoopy was too heavy -- or, to be strictly accurate, would have been too heavy if it had been fully fueled.
The purpose of my argumentative e-mail was to point that out, and I included a link to the online version of the Apollo 10 Press Kit. On p. 44 the dry weight of Snoopy is listed as 9,484 lb—almost 200lb heavier than Eagle, the eventual lander.
By some feat of misadventure, Mike only followed a partial link, and got a surprise.
Mike sent me the screen capture above, with the sarcastic message "Gee, when I click on your link, I get the attached warning from NASA to the effect that this information can only be accessed from inside a NASA facility. That must be where you found this link. So how long have you worked at NASA?"
How do I know he followed an incomplete link? Easy—I can see it in his browser tab, and when I follow the same link I get exactly the same warning message that he does. Thus proving that I'm not on a NASA network.
I might add that if I did work for NASA it would be a matter of pride, and not something I would be diffident about revealing. Not at all. The notion that everyone in NASA, and everyone funded by NASA, is corrupt and deceptive is one of the most toxic aspects of the Hoagland/Bara thesis. They should be ashamed.
