Rispetto a quanto chiesto da ZioStefo, dopo qualche ricerca sul Web porto alcuni links interessanti:
Buzz Aldrin nel documentario di ieri sera, in lingua originale.
La NASA dice la sua…
Riporto a futura memoria per evitare che il commento svanisca in qualche ristrutturazione del sito NASA.
[b]Question:[/b] [i]Edwin Aldrin recently came out on in a special on the Science Channel and stated that the astronauts aboard Apollo 11 all saw unidentified objects which seemed to have been following them. He also mentions that they were briefed not to talk about what they had seen. What does NASA have to say in response to this? What were those objects they all saw?[/i]
Answer:I just talked to Buzz Aldrin on the phone, and he notes that the quotations were taken out of context and did not convey the intended meaning. After the Apollo 11 crew verified that the object they were seeing was not the SIVB upper stage, which was about 6000 miles away at that time, they concluded that they were probably seeing one of the panels from the separation of the spacecraft from the upper stage. These panels were not tracked from Earth and were likely much closer to the Apollo spacecraft. They chose not to discuss this on the open communications channel since they were concerned that their comments might be misinterpreted (as they are being now). Apparently all of this discussion about the panels was cut from the broadcast interview, thus giving the impression that they had seen a UFO.

Parrebbe quindi che una più ampia dissertazione sulla natura dell’oggetto osservato dagli astronauti sia stata abilmente tagliata.
D’altra parte l’oggetto mostrato nel filmato NON è stato ripreso da Apollo XI ma da una non precisata missione successiva.
Questo l’ho sentito nell’audio originale, che anche voi potete seguire sul link a google video che ho inserito, ma non mi pare (correggetemi) che sia stato opportunamente tradotto da quanto mandato in onda da LA7.
Infine un vasto intervento sul tema di James Oberg.
Chiudo la mia personale stroncatura del documentario linkando la ancor più crudele recensione del famoso Phil Plait, autore del notissimo sito debunker “Bad Astronomy”.
