As far as I know, the Van Allen belt filters out harmful radiation from the sun. In the world of UFOs, it is absent over the north and south poles. During the space race, there were fears that missions to the moon punctured the Van Allen belt, thereby exposing us to harmful radiation. Why the sudden concern about the Van Allen belt? -LW
NASA’s newest spacecraft, Orion, will be launching into space for the first time in December 2014, on a flight that will take it farther than any spacecraft built to carry humans has gone in more than 40 years and through temperatures twice as hot as molten lava to put its critical systems to the test.
According to the video below, spacecraft Orion will test the Van Allen radiation belt first before they can send people through this region of space.
Listen carefully at around 3:36 what the man says: “We must solve this problem before we send people through this region of space” (the Van Allen radiation belt).
Didn’t they already send 6 manned crews through this region on the way to the moon in the Apollo missions?
If NASA is still working on testing the Van Allen radiation belt in order to solve that problem before they can send the astronauts through this region of space, than it is really amazing what the engineers of NASA in the 60’s and with the technology of the 60’s have done to solve that problem, leading to the first moon landing in ’69.
If the moon missions were real, then it seems the whole “the Van Allen radiation belt” problem should have been solved over 40 years ago and at least have landed on Mars by now and flown manned flights to one of Mars’ moons or even a flyby of Saturn or Jupiter.
After watching this video I have to seriously doubt that there were ever any “NASA” manned space flights to the moon.
