I'm not shocked by their fakery, but I'm shocked at how shoddy it is.  By contrast, the USA's "moon landing" still has folks convinced!

The before and after differences are easily explained.
The monkey in question was given a cool new mink hat as a reward for heroism.
For the media photo op, he was given a session in a tanning booth to achieve a healthy and vibrant look.
And his face simply was refigured by the super high velocity the rocket achieved.

Now, get back to being content citizens!

Aliens now walk among us. The real monkey was switched for a counterfeit alien space monkey while in orbit.

The real monkey is being used as a repository for alien semen until the queen can hock up her frothy egg-foam into the monkey's mouth. Once egg-foam is deposited and the mucous plug congeals the monkey will be fitted into a Justin Beiberesque exoskeleton, beamed back to Earth and sent on tour--where it will use its 4" ovapositor to deposit fertilized ova into the mouths and colons of unfortunate Beiber fans.

As the eggs grow they will imprint on the sounds they hear in their gastrointestinal wombs. Once they hatch they will seek out and do the bidding of those who can reproduce these sounds: Beiber music. Bend over and kiss your asses goodbye, people. You're going to be compelled by screaming masses of baby aliens ("yellowbones") to buy them yellow stones and yellow clothes and they'll all be speaking in tongues and you won't know what the f*ck you're hearing, but it'll make your ears bleed.

g4lt: MylesHeartVodak: dj_bigbird: Raoul Eaton: I'm not shocked by their fakery, but I'm shocked at how shoddy it is.  By contrast, the USA's "moon landing" still has folks convinced!

Remember, the US didn't have the fancy "Photoshop" that the Iranians do now, they had to use real models/mockups, real people, etc.

Here is a tidbit about the roots of the moon landing "hoax" conspiracy theory:

The 1950 film Destination Moon, based on a book and the later screenplay by Robert Heinlein, was the basis for it.

They were filming in Technicolor, with full mockups inside a closed sound stage.  They were extremely strict, locking the doors, kicking out smokers and bystanders because of the air currents and particulates in the air.  It was supposed to be on the moon, hence in full vacuum.  They couldn't have dust particles floating around, etc.  They were going for absolute realism on the set.   Those that caught glimpses into the set, and angry bystanders kicked out, later claimed that this was the same set and films used later for the actual landing.  I'm just guessing they were being AWs.

Then the "Kubrick" theory is wrong, George Pal directed Destination Moon.

That's what they want you to think.

Voiceofreason01: Is the monkey jewish?

Dunno, can't tell if it's circumcised or not.

Maybe it was about to be, and that's why it initially has a mohel over its eye?

The Beatles? Oh yes, I understand that they are some kind of popular 'beat combo'.

If Iran is gonna be that shoddy just to fake sending a monkey to space, I'm thinking the effects are going to really crappy when they try to fake a moon landing.

We had Kubrick and Hollywood sound stages.
