Russian Professor Proves Apollo ‘Moon’ Photos Fake by Parallaxing Stereoscopic Photos

This article is an excerpt taken from the very detailed website of Prof Oleg Oleynik, Ph.D.c who proves, without a shadow of a doubt, that the Apollo “moon pictures” were actually taken NOT on the Moon, but somewhere on Earth, probably in a studio setting. The dear professor posted his scientific conclusions on Wikipedia, but no matter how many times he tried, the WP moderators keep changing the text discrediting his scientific findings. So much for Wikipedia. It should be called Wicked Pedia!

This is the most interesting Apollo Investigation I ever stumbled upon. Stereoscopic images are produced by moving the camera a very short distance and turning the two photos into a moving gif. One can see the foreground move, but not the distant scenery. That stays the same. Not so in the “Apollo Moon” pictures! The ostensible moon mountains range changes perspective, which proves that the scenery is at the most 300 meters away instead of 1–2 miles! Thus we know that at least the Apollo Moon Photos are a hoax and this casts even more doubts than was already cast before by different investigations that put many nails into the coffin of the veracity of the “Apollo Moon Landing.”

Enjoy Prof ‘s investigation, and tell your friends… that we have been systematically lied to… and about many things as well. Is that why the astronauts were so depressed in their first press conference after this “successful mission” that should have turned them into glorious victorious heroes with proud smiling tales to tell. Instead this is what they looked like. Ashamed, shy, insecure, afraid to look the audience in the eyes, downright dejected like dogs with their tales between the legs. i don’t blame them if they were tricked into this farce and threatened with death to force them to lie to the public. It is understandable that they would not dare to cross the spooks of the USA.

A Stereoscopic method of verifying Apollo lunar surface images

by OLEG OLEYNIK, Ph.D.c
Previously of the Department of Physics and Technology
Kharkov State University, Ukraine

Photographs taken on the lunar surface during the Apollo missions are regarded as the most compelling pieces of evidence that mankind went to the Moon.

The photographic validation method presented here is based on the detection of two-dimensional objects among three-dimensional objects, and determining the mutual arrangement of these objects in space and the distance to them by applying a technique known as stereoscopic parallax.

The word parallax derives from the Greek parallaxis meaning “alteration” where parallax is the difference in the apparent position of objects caused by shifting camera position. To achieve such a result, images are overlapped and are deducted/subtracted from each other using the function “difference” in an image processing application such as Photoshop®. Optical transformations are used when images are subtracted. During image convergence simple operations are applied: x and y axis scaling, rotation and distortion plus two additional processes: perspective and shift.

Such processes are referred to below as “optical transformations”.  Objects further than two kilometres distant, with a minor camera shift, have zero parallax.
Using Photoshop® the sequence of steps deployed is as follows:

    1. Two overlapping images are placed on different layers – thereby creating a PSD file.
    2. Application of function “difference” to the upper layer (subtraction of images from each other).
    3. Optical transformations are applied: axes x and y scaling, rotation, distortion, perspective and in addition a shift to the requirement specified above. As a result maximum density black for the background is obtained.
    4. The layer is returned to the normal view: function “normal”.
    5. The PSD file is pruned to remove non-overlapping parts.
    6. Sequentially, the converted layers are carried over into the application’s GIF animator.
    7. A stereoscopic GIF image is obtained that permits the creation of a 3D effect, even on a flat screen.

Image Wikipedia

If any given image was taken inside a pavilion or dome with a panoramic background, i.e. when there are no distant objects with null parallax, then such a 2-dimensional object can be detected among any 3D bodies. In the case of such a finding, reaching the conclusion that there was deception could be stated with confidence.

Example 1.  The method of creating a stereoscopic image is examined in the following example of images of the Zmievskaya power plant, Kharkov region, Ukraine. The camera shift is 1.5 m.

The distance to the power plant is about 4 kms and to the tree planting (left horizon) is about 2 kms.

The image convergence shown below (the main criteria is the most complete background subtraction, and since the distance is more than 3 kms, the parallax is zero).

Images are processed in a GIF-animator to obtain a stereoscopic image:

(For more detailed information on creating stereoscopic images and obtaining intermediate images see this article – in Russian).

It is now possible to measure the parallax and the distance to all remote objects. The distance La to any
object A, is calculated as follows:

Knowing the distance to the front edge: 5 m, and the front edge offset: 85 mm (can be measured by a ruler, the two white grasses), plus the offset of the nearest electric pylon, about 1.2 mm. From the proportions ratio the distance to the nearer pylon is acquired, namely 350 metres; to the second pylon with the parallax of 0.6 mm is 700 metres. Distance to the trees (offset is about 0.2 mm) is close to 2 kms – at the boundary of parallax occurrence.

Conclusion: These simple image transformation operations preserve perspective proportions.

Similarly, as in the case of examining the parallax of the Apollo lunar surface images – where, according to NASA maps of the landing sites, the distance to the mountain background should be more than 5 kms – evidence of stereoscopic imagery is expected. If such evidence is absent, the image cannot have been taken in the stated environment, such an image must have been created elsewhere in a studio.
