Jack White's Studies


Apollo Investigation

Jack White's Studies – General File A
An extensive study of Apollo imagery by photo analyst Jack White

Two versions of same Apollo image

Editor's Note: In the 2001 version dust disturbance immediately to the left of the little black spot, the small rock / folded cardboard shadow in the 2010 version
suggests that the
rock was removed from the 2001 version. The work of whistle-blowers?
Compare: Moon rovers which leave no tracks in the moon dust












Editor's Note: This is not actually a fly, but a protective cover/patch for the urine disposal vent. Urine collection was internal, but urine disposal was external from the urine collection bag in the suit.

Landing Point Designator
Landing Point Designator from Inside the LM

Editor's Note: Any effective falsification requires the embodiment of an element of truth or reality. In this instance the Commander’s window guide acts as the ‘mast’ for the ‘flag’.

In the case of an actual lunar surface scenario, it would be very difficult to be able to register these markings.  Recall that this was reversal film with very limited exposure latitude. The interior of the LM would need to be illuminated and the landing point designator backlit. The aluminium Mylar shield inside the LM might act as a reflector, but only if sufficient incoming light was available. This Mylar shield just happened to be in the right position to form the 'flag'. 

This side of the LM – including the window – was in complete shadow.

No other photographs taken in this series deliver the same result. On the contrary, photographs AS11-40-5863 and AS11-40-5867 have a blue ‘sky’ colouring the same window.

This descending the ladder series of images has been the subject of close study by researchers over many years including Dr David Groves, All of which, including the latest investigation by two Russian Cinematographers demonstrate conclusively that this photograph and by implication, the other photographs in the series, were all lit by artificial lighting.

And while it explains how the items inside the LM were rendered visible from the outside – no photographic lights whatsoever were taken to the Moon in 1969.

Editor's Note: As we have stated in the case of the famous Apollo 11 photo of Aldrin
– the reflection in the visor is not that of the photographer of the image
