There is no doubt that the Chinese government has completely embarrassed themselves with this alleged Chang’e 3 lunar landing mission. Every common sense observation indicates that this mission has been completely faked. The Chinese have thus far only released a few small snippets of video and some highly questionable lower resolution photos that they claim were taken from the moon. Unfortunately for the Chinese, this material appears to have been shot in a television studio here on earth instead of on the moon. To prevent further national embarrassment and to eliminate the need to create further propaganda to substantiate this fraud, the Chinese are now claiming that the lunar rover has encountered severe technical problems. This appears to be a convenient way to justify ending the mission without having to continue on with this debacle of propaganda and lies.
China's lunar lander looks like it was put together with pvc pipes, duct tape and gold colored tin foil.
If this were a real mission a technical problem would certainly not be an unforeseen circumstance. However, in this particular situation the Chinese have failed to provide any significant details describing the problem other than that the rover allegedly encountered some sort of mechanical abnormality. Why not release the specific nature of the issue if there is a legitimate problem with the equipment? It makes no sense that they would not release details of the problem unless of course the entire operation is being faked. To distract people from the obvious anomalies surrounding the mission the Chinese state run media have authored a statement from the point of view of the Jade Rabbit lunar rover
. Here are some of the quotes.
"Although I should've gone to bed this morning, my masters discovered something abnormal with my mechanical control system,"
"My masters are staying up all night working for a solution. I heard their eyes are looking more like my red rabbit eyes."
"Nevertheless, I'm aware that I might not survive this lunar night."
It is as if they are trying to invoke an emotional response from people who have closely followed the mission by making the rover seem more human like instead of a piece of equipment. They want people to focus in on the sad remarks attributed to the rover instead of the obvious questions surrounding the validity of this mission.A new 360 degree panorama shot that has been put together from some of the mission photos
truly illustrates how fake the mission’s pictures are. The shots comprising the panorama were said to be taken during the lunar day but they show no stars, no earth and no sun. How is that remotely possible being in an environment where there is supposed to be no atmosphere? These objects should all be easy to spot in the lunar sky considering that there would be no atmospheric interference blocking their view from the lunar surface. It should be obvious to everyone who has any sort of common sense that the pictures that make up this panorama couldn’t have been taken on the moon.A released shot of the lunar lander supposedly on the moon is truly humorous
as it looks no better than some of the photos taken of the Apollo landers back during the 1960s and 1970s. It seriously looks like somebody put together some pvc piping, wrapped gold tin foil around it, taped a Chinese flag on it and they passed it off as a lunar lander. You have to give the Chinese some credit though. Undoubtedly they saved a great deal of money considering you can find most of these materials at a local hardware store without too much difficulty. Imagine how much money it would have cost if they had to legitimately build a real lunar lander? Or perhaps somebody just pocketed the cash that was meant to be spent on a real spacecraft.
To summarize, it looks as if this faked lunar mission is finally coming to an end considering the announcement of these supposed technical problems. The Chinese have now participated in two very obvious space mission hoaxes as an attempt to project Chinese national prestige on the world stage. If they attempt another one of these hoaxes they should at least put a little more thought into the operation because these first two have been completely obvious frauds.
