Wow, ranma got him to delete his account.


Congrats, man.

Yes, but at the expense of his immortal soul, what a guy!
Just to be clear, you are all terrific, but everything you say is exactly what a moron would say.

The best was all I had to do was be honest....

...and this.

Note that not one single description of the LLR experiments mentions taking this distance offset into account.

But lets go ahead and pretend they do and the laser is aimed ahead with the appropriate offset.

There is still a problem. A BIG and insurmountable problem!

I know the party's long over, the guests gone home and all the "dead marines" recycled long ago,

but, while I firmly believe that the laser reflectors on the moon are real, I think Setec Astronomy was not that far wrong.

No, probably no "BIG and insurmountable problem!"

I think that he was on the right track with his arguments in
To return to the subject, the LLR is a proven LIE and HOAX because the incident light returned by a corner cube array will be ~75 km off from the location it was emitted from 2.5 seconds earlier because earth's orbital velocity is 30 km per second.



The absence of any meaningful criticism relating to this point is an excellent indicator that the LLR experiment is indeed a total LIE and HOAX.

I hope this is a "meaningful criticism relating to this point"!

In his diagram he shows the moon in the "full moon" position, but in performing the experiment the aim was to have both the moon and the observatory in shade to avoid unnecessary extraneous light.

Now the best time for this is probably at 25% or 75% moon phase, where the moon is aligned with the the earth's orbit around the sun.
At these points half the moon we see is in shade, and the observatory can be in shade.

Now the only velocity to consider is from the earth's rotation, about 400 m/'s at 30°N, so no problem.

I have not seen this point discused,  and I might be completely wrong - would be the time.

I think that is what I contended, that Earth's orbital velocity is irrelevant.

Welp, just to add, the reflector is angled. Did you account for THAT in your calculations? It's not going to be a straight shot.

With corner reflectors the angle of incidence doesn't matter. The incidence and reflection angles are identical. So, yes I did think about that.

I know. I'm just adding some info to the debate that may not have been considered. Great to see that you did. Although there is the fact that there is a lot of scattered light reflecting off the moon, it might change the strength of the reflected light. Your receiver may also get some sun reflection from the LRR

If I were taking the readings, then I would take a baseline reading and then measure the jump in intensity.  Afterwards, you would want to rule out any other possible noise sources, like solar flare or something like that.
