The picture of Goebbels from LIFE was taken at the moment Goebbels was informed that the photographer was Jewish..... What a douche.

Thank you, i was also going to point that out. Makes the picture much more intense

Yep, those photographers can be a sneaky lot.
September 13, 2013 at 8:11 am
pretty sure they added that caption for shock value, doubt its true

I was wondering why he looked so pissed. Excellent factoid.

Chris Deaton Well, there is no caption on this photo, except for the relevant details: Subject, photographer, etc. Unless you mean that "Life" originally captioned the photo in this way. However, since the given photographer's name could be a jewish one, and... you know... given the whole "nazis hated the jews" thing, I'm not quite sure why you seem to find this so implausible....

Not to doubt you or anything, but do you have any supporting literature? It'd be interesting to read the whole story.

The photo on the lunar surface is not from the Apollo 11 mission. It is a picture of Lunar Module Pilot Charlie Duke and his family, Duke was apart of the Apollo 16 crew. In the upper left corner of the shot you can see the tracks from a lunar rover, there was no rover on the Apollo 11 mission.
September 9, 2013 at 6:21 pm
Great point, good job.
September 9, 2013 at 9:11 pm
Tracks from previous mission? Tracks and footprints should still be there.
September 9, 2013 at 9:33 pm
Yeah, except that Apollo 11 was the first moon mission.

Actually Mr. Stanely, Apollo 11 was the third lunar mission, Apollo 8 was the first manned lunar mission and put Astronauts Borman, Lovell, and Anders in lunar orbit for several hours. There mission was originally supposed to have been another Earth orbit test combined with the lunar module like Apollo 9, but the LEM wasn't flight ready. The CIA showed recon photos, to then NASA leadership and Apollo program heads, of the U.S.S.R's version of their lunar rocket and suggested that the Russians might be getting ready to send men to the moon. So Apollo 8's mission was changed. Apollo 10 was the second lunar mission and was a dress rehearsal for the Apollo 11 flight. Astronauts Stafford and Cernan descended down to within approximately 30NM of the surface before rejoining Astronaut John Young, aboard the command module, for the return flight to Earth. Many wondered why they didn't land, and it wasn't disclosed until years later that the ascent engine was only given enough fuel to get them back to the command module form that altitude and not from the lunar surface. Therefore Apollo 11 is actually the third lunar mission, although it is the 1st to land and allow men to walk upon it's surface.

That photo would be pure white today. Bleached out by decades of UV light. I've read that the American flags that were put on the moon are also all completely white today. But because we now have such phenomenal telescopes, the shadow from some of those flags can be seen indicating they are still upright and blowing in the breeze.

you should specify when the picture is colorised, that's not authentic!
September 12, 2013 at 3:42 pm
Even after colour photography was invented it was commonplace to colour black and white photographs with brush and ink. I think that's what they mean here by "colorized". I remember seeing sets of special inks on sale for colouring photographs in the 1960s, and perhaps the '70s.

or you could use some common sense.
