where do you get that "dark as coal" shit -- does coal really look that bright, on a clear night with a full Moon?
#1 lunar problem -- the oldest -- is the "moon illusion."
so, you just cannot find Venus' phase-seen-from-Earth-orbit at those times, from inside of your Jet Propulsion Lab bubble-suit?
that's what I've thought, for months, but, I still want to know, where was Venus during those alleged landings, with respect to Earth (or Moon) and Sun?... a planar approximation will do, for now (say, relative angle from Sun with those two heavenly bodies -- we'll pretend, we're foating "north" of the ecliptic, a hundred AUs away -- looks fkat .-)
if you cannot take the heat, jump out of the frying pan, dood!

thus: otherwise, coal's a very (?) important feedstock. so, what is the sustainable production of natural gas & natural oil?... Atoms, Machiavelli, Machiavelli & Oil need a figure for the venture ads!... coal, we know from its pre-fossil formations, to be produced catastrophically; the burial of whole, swampy ecosystems. Yucca Flats is a farce majeur, even if there's any thing left to bury, by the time it'd open, or by noon, Pacific Time.
thus: the Brooklyn Bridge is a powerful metaphor, but it has to be told in the context of its manifestation as David McCullough's first production for PBS: his first, big SALE, in other word, to the "eastern liberal establishment" of Wall Street, the District of Columbia and protege Ken "Civil War Jazzbo" Burns.
thus: so, did you recalibrate the orbital constraints in your JPL publicdomain trajectories, to include the phasal parameter "as 'seen' from Earth?..." was Venus closer to conjunction or opposition to Earth, during those alleged missions?... > Where's Venus (from orbit or surface EVA) as > of missions A-11, A-14 and A-16?
