    There've been a few saved souls too. The apollohoax forum was started by one.

    It's just a lesson to be careful what you read on the Internet. Like the way I refuse to believe Link left Ilia behind forever.

    Aldrin and Armstrong each had a Hasselblad camera. Has Aldrin ever explained why he only took one photo of Armstrong on the surface?

    Incorrect. The two had one camera between them on the surface. It is my understanding that Armstrong took more pictures because he was the better photographer.

    There was one camera between the two of them. (I think this was only true of Apollo 11 - for the remaining missions, both astronauts had cameras).

    EVA began at around 109:20:00.
    Armstrong gets the camera around 109:30:00.
    He puts it down around 110:12:30.
    Aldrin takes it around 110:25:00.
    Armstrong gets it back around 110:40:00.
    He puts it down again and Aldrin gets it again around 110:43:00.
    Armstrong gets it back around 110:53:00.
    EVA ends around 111:39:00.

    So Aldrin had the camera for about 25 minutes of the approximately 140-minute EVA and had specific photographic responsibilities in the two intervals he had them. It's not all that surprising he didn't take more photographs of Armstrong.
    Everything I need to know I learned through Googling.

    According to this there were two Hasselblad cameras in the Apollo 11 lunar module. Was it policy that only one be out on the surface in use at a time?

    Was there ever a mission where both astronauts were both walking around each carrying a camera at the same time?

    Even though he was the first man on the moon, this was the only photo taken of Armstrong on the moon.

    The answers to your questions are at the link you posted. This is not a Q&A thread and you've been previously warned and infracted in the past for taking threads off topic with such questions or your own CT/ATM ideas. Stop it.

    Yes both astronauts had/used cameras while performing EVA's. Those images and a descriptions are in the Apollo Lunar Surface Journal. https://history.nasa.gov/alsj/ and its companion AFJ https://history.nasa.gov/afj/index.html

    Even though he was the first man on the moon, this was the only photo taken of Armstrong on the moon.
    And your point?

    Slight correction. The Apollo 11 LM carried 2 Hasselblads. One was equipped with a reseau plate and was intended and designed for EVA use. The other had no reseau plate and was not adapted for EVA use. Thus it could not leave the LM.

    The twas ever thus. The fact that the whole thing looks more like a science/engineering expedition and less than like a purely superficial stunt suggests it wasn't a science/engineering expedition but really a superficial, very superficial in that it was fake, stunt.

    Folks, when a moderator/admin warns a member to stop a side track, that's your cue to stop the side track, too.


    The OP (post count = 1) has not logged back in since starting this thread and it's turned into infraction bait. Closed.
