    You are misunderstanding what I'm saying, and I'm not really sure why. Watch that section again and look at the green girder. The green girder is A2001. The green girder, in NISTS global collapse analysis, does not start to fall until AFTER...

    Mick West replied to the thread Light Fall Off in Apollo Missions - American Moon Documentary.
