Apollo 8 took 20 hours to complete 10 Moon orbits, which equates to an average time of 2 hours per orbit! Transferring the data to other missions results in vastly differing journey times to and from the Moon, which does not make sense. So Apollo 12 got to the Moon in 26.5 hours, and yet Apollo 17 took 76 hours, how come? Did it get held up in a 'coned off' section of the galaxy on its way to and from the Moon? For crying out load, it takes the space shuttle 66 Hrs to reach the ISS which is only 185 miles above Earth. NASA claim Apollo 13 encountered a problem 55 Hrs into duration time when it was over 200,000 miles from Earth. NASA also claim the Apollo missions traveled to Moon by 'trans lunar orbit'.
This is complete and utter nonsense, as it defies all laws of physics in relation to the way objects move in space. The only way to travel in space is by orbiting the planet from where the spacecraft was launched. On each orbit the spacecraft is moved out a little further from the planet which it is orbiting. You can imagine it as giro circles, or the groove on a vinyl record, moving from the center of record to the outer edge, the center part being the heavenly body, (planet), from which the spacecraft was launched. That's why it takes the shuttle 66 hrs to reach the International Space Station, which is only 200 miles above the Earth, and below the magnetosphere, so as to avoid deadly space radiation.
The Apollo mission for each of these astronauts, (or astroNOTS as Ralph René calls them), was their FIRST and ONLY experience of space travel, apart from Shepard's 15 minute sub orbital space hop, which was limited experience of weightlessness. Anders, Bean, Haise, Swigert, Mitchell, Shepard, Irwin, Duke, Schmitt, Roosa, Worden, Mattingly and Evans. The last three of this list allegedly performed deep space walks, (125,000 miles from Earth), on the return mission.
Would someone who has had no space experience whatsoever be assigned to such a complex, and dangerous mission in deep space, and why faff around doing space walks outside the capsule exposing one's self to highly dangerous cosmic radiation, not to mention the possibility of something going wrong, when getting back to planet Earth would be the top priority? Shouldn't those listed have had some sort of experience in low Earth orbit before such a challenging and complex mission? Not really, they knew they were not going to the Moon.
THE TRUE FACTS SURROUNDING ALL APOLLO MISSIONS.
Data taken from "One Small Step" by Tim Furniss, and the Mcgraw Hill "Encyclopedia of Space and Technology".
Have yourself a good laugh at NASA incompetence.
Apollo 8 did 92 Earth orbits. Apollo 10 did 121 Earth orbits. Apollo 11 did 123 Earth orbits. Apollo 12 did 154 Earth orbits. Apollo 13 did 90 Earth orbits, with the so called problem occurring whilst in Earth orbit. Apollo 14 did 136 Earth orbits, without Alan Shepard on board. Apollo 15 did 186 Earth orbits. Apollo 16 did 168 Earth orbits, and finally Apollo 17 did 191 Earth orbits.
NASA used Apollo to further the time that astronauts could spend in Earth orbit, with the view to constructing a space station, however they conned the world into believing they were making Moon landings. This is confirmed by the mission duration times before, and after the Apollo program. The last Gemini mission prior to Apollo did 59 Earth orbits in 94.5 hours. Following on from the last Apollo mission in Earth orbit, (Apollo 17), Sky lab 2 launched in May 73 did 404 orbits in 672 hours before crashing back to Earth. Apollo missions fill the gap between Gemini's 59 orbits, and Sky lab's 404 orbits.
Many people claim that the data on the Nasascam web pages is incorrect, but fail to take into account that any data on the web pages is either taken from a NASA web site, or some reference book which endorses Apollo. If the data is incorrect, (in reality all of it is incorrect because they never made it to the Moon), then the NASA web sites and reference books are also incorrect. To give you some idea of how bizarre, and laughable the Apollo record is, read on, and be sure to copy those NASA web pages before they realize their blundering mistakes and change the data:-
NASA inform us that Apollo 16 was launched on 16 April 1972 at 12:54 hrs, as detailed below, and here.

Title: Apollo 16 liftoff. Description: The huge, 363-feet tall Apollo 16 (Spacecraft 113/Lunar Module 11/Saturn511) space vehicle is launched from Pad A, Launch Complex 39, Kennedy Space Center (KSC), Florida, at 12:54:00.569 p.m., April 16, 1972. The launch is framed on the left by a large piece of dead wood in a body of water near the launch pad.
They then inform us that the Apollo 16 was in lunar orbit on 16 April 1972, as detailed below, and here.

Title: Oblique view of lunar nearside photographed from Apollo 16 spacecraft. Description: An oblique view of a portion of the lunar nearside as photographed from the Apollo 16 spacecraft in lunar orbit. The small, bright crater is Lassell Dat the north eastern edge of Mare Nubium (Sea of Clouds). The area seen in this picture is immediately west of Lassell C crater, southeast of Guericke crater, and southwest of Davy crater.
That's going it a bit to get to the Moon, 250,000 miles away in a couple of hours, when it takes the Space Shuttle 66 hours to reach the ISS which is only 200 miles above Earth. After being in lunar orbit for 3 days, NASA tell us that on 19 April 1972, Apollo 16 is making its 2nd revolution of the Moon, shown below and here.
NASA Photo ID: AS16-120-19187 File Name: 10075824.jpg Film Type: 70mm Date Taken: 04/19/72
Title: Earth rise as photographed by Apollo 16. Description: The Apollo 16 astronauts captured this Earth rise scene with a handheld Hasselblad camera during the second revolution of the Moon. Identifiable craters seen on the moon include Saha, Wyld, and Saenger. Much of the terrain seen here is never visible from the Earth, as the Command Module was just passing into what is known as the dark side or far side of the Moon.
We have gone from being incredibly fast to being incredibly slow. Now the next piece of mind boggling data from NASA tells us that on 18 April 1972, (one day before the astronauts had made their 2nd revolution of the Moon), Apollo 16 was on its 63rd revolution of the Moon, as shown below and here.
NASA Photo ID: AS16-121-19449 File Name: 10075827.jpg Film Type: 70mm Date Taken: 04/18/72
Title: Apollo 16 view of portion of lunar surface. Description: This view of a portion of the lunar surface was photographed during Apollo 16's 63rd revolution of the Moon. Gassendi crater is featured in the scene. Principle point coordinates are located at 17.5 degrees south latitude and 35.3 degrees west longitude.
Confused? I am not the least bit surprised the reader is confused, but if one understands that all of NASA's data as regards Apollo Moon missions is totally fabricated, then all becomes clear. For a Government agency to post info on the Internet, then claim it as being genuine, can only be described as utterly ridiculous, but hey, haven't NASA been feeding us utter nonsense and BS for the last 50 years so we should be used to it by now. Don't worry folks, if you think it couldn't get any worse than this, you would be grossly mistaken, because it does. Info provided by NASA as shown below and here, tells us that on the 20 April 1972, two days after Apollo 16 had completed 63 revolutions of the Moon, it was on its 12th revolution.
NASA Photo ID: AS16-113-18282 File Name: 10075829.jpg Film Type: 70mm Date Taken: 04/20/72
Title: View of the Apollo 16 Command/Service Module from the Lunar module in orbit. Description: View of the Apollo 16 Command/Service Module taken from the Lunar module while in orbit over the lunar surface. This photo was taken during the twelfth revolution around the Moon.
NASA then tell us that the Apollo 16 module undocked on 20 April 1972, shown below and here. Well if had done 63 revolutions on 18 April 1972, then it must have done about 87 revolutions by 20 April 1972.

Title: View of the Apollo 16 Command/Service Module from the Lunar module in orbit. Description: The Apollo 16 Command and Service Modules (CSM), as seen from the Lunar Module (LM, out of view) above terrain on the lunar farside. The two spacecraft had just undocked. The LM and CSM were out of communication at the time of this photograph's exposure, but shortly acquired the signal as they moved separately to the earth side of the moon.
The Apollo 16 astronauts then allegedly left the Moon on 23 April 1972, shown below and here.

Title: Apollo 16 television transmission of lunar module ascent stage liftoff. Description: The flame from the Apollo 16 Lunar Module "Orion" ascent stage engine creates a kaleidoscope effect during lunar liftoff, as seen in this reproduction taken from a color television transmission made the the RCA color TV camera mounted on the Lunar Roving Vehicle (LRV) (35163); Apollo 16 LM "Orion" ascent stage makes its lift off from the lunar surface at 175:44 ground elapsed time, 7:26 p.m., April 23, 1972 (35164).
But somehow they arrive in Earth orbit 2 days before they left the Moon's surface, as shown below and here.
NASA Photo ID: AS16-123-19650 File Name: 10075874.jpg Film Type: 4x5 BW Date Taken: 04/21/72
Title: Geocorona photographed by Astronaut John Young with UV camera. Description: The geocorona, a halo of low density hydrogen around the Earth (center) photographed by Astronaut John W. Young, Apollo 16 commander, with UV camera. Sunlight is shining from the left, and the geocorona is bright on that side. Exposure 15 seconds, with F/1 electronic graphic camera. The streaks and circular patch on right are instrumental.
However they forgot to do there (fake) EVA midway between the Earth and Moon, and so went back to the Moon on 25 April 1972, before final splashdown on 27 April 1972. Details below and also here.

Title: Astronaut Thomas Mattingly performs EVA during Apollo 16 transearth coast. Description: Astronaut Thomas K. Mattingly II, command module pilot of the Apollo 16 lunar landing mission, performs extravehicular activity (EVA) during the Apollo 16 transearth coast. Mattingly is assisted by Astronaut Charles M. Duke Jr., lunar module pilot. Mattingly inspected the SIM bay of the Service Module, and retrieved film from the Mapping and Panoramic cameras. Mattingly is wearing the helmet
of Astronaut John W. Young, commander. The helmet's lunar extravehicular visor assembly helped protect Mattingly's eyes from the bright sun. This view is a frame from motion picture film exposed by a 16mm Maurer camera.
All NASA and PAN's can do is "Dream On"
In 1989 Tim Furniss published his ficitional/fantasy book entitled "One Small Step", complete with utterly ridiculous FAKE Moon pictures. Listed below are extracts from the book, which are really out of this world in the 21st centuary.
Page 59, first paragraph:- Wernher von Braun felt able to predict confidently that a baby would be born on the Moon in 2000.
COMMENT:- No man has ever yet landed on the Moon as of 2019, so to predict a female giving birth on the Moon in the year 2000 is utterly absurd.
Page 70, last sentence:- "Once we have our new spacecraft, the shuttle, it will be possible to go to Moon more economically".
COMMENT:- The shuttle was in existence for over 30 years, but during that time there was no shuttle mission to the Moon, and there NEVER WILL BE. Getting a man to the Moon and back is, many, many years into the future.
Here is a statement made by George W Bushin 2004:- The United States will begin developing a new manned exploration vehicle to explore beyond our orbit to other worlds -- the first of its kind since the Apollo Command Module. The new spacecraft, the Crew Exploration Vehicle, will be developed and tested by 2008 and will conduct its first manned mission no later than 2014. America will THEN return to the Moon as early as 2015, and no later than 2020 and use it as a stepping stone for more ambitious missions. A series of robotic missions to the Moon, similar to the Spirit Rover that is sending remarkable images, (fake of course), back to Earth from Mars. It will explore the lunar surface beginning no later than 2008 to research and prepare for future human exploration. Using the Crew Exploration Vehicle, humans will conduct extended lunar missions as early as 2015, with the goal of living and working there for increasingly extended period. As shown here.
COMMENT:- Will someone please tell George Dubya that it is now 2019, and there is no robotic rover on the Moon, never has been, and never will be. Back in 1994, his father made similar ridiculous statements as regards returning to the Moon before 2010. Both of course are completely "out of touch with reality, and living on another planet". I think it must run in the family. However to think that both of these men held the highest position in USA government would leave many feeling a 'bit scary'. Just think PAN's, men back on the Moon before 2020, bet you can't wait. All I can say to you is "Dream On".
Page 27,first paragraph:- The air of confidence that Apollo 11 was the "The Beginning", was illustrated in predictions that following ten Apollo landings on the Moon by 1972, there would be manned flights to Mars in 1985.
COMMENT:- 1985 was over 34 years ago, and yet in 2019 mankind has not yet ventured beyond the magnetosphere and Earth orbit, which is only some 300 miles above the Earth. It was a ridiculous prediction to make.
