Have you ever researched how many people were involved in this event?
My guess is well over a thousand.
Did NASA/The Gov "fool" all of these people?
If so, how did they go about it?
Just some thoughts about the actual details of the logistics involved, the many shift-changes that had to take place.
Like,,, how many people involved called in sick and had to be replaced?
Were these replacements also fooled?
Around the globe, how many tracking stations were involved?
Was the craft launched "unmanned"? Who would actually know?
Was more than one craft launched?
Was the launch also "faked"?
Just some thoughts,,, nothing more.
