now, i'm not saying that the landings were faked
the argument could be made that they were faked, for propaganda purposes.
you hafta remember that we were competing with communism (specifically at the the time, the USSR/CCCP)...we HAD to be better than them, no matter the
cost. if we let them do something we couldn't do, that somehow meant we "lost"
so maybe we really did land on the moon, so we could say "hey russia, look what we did. suck it."
maybe we faked the whole damned things, so we could say "hey russia, look what we did. suck it."
i'd personally like to believe we went to the moon, but that doesn't entirely square with the step backward, that was the shuttle program, and
everything that came after it.
whatever, it's interesting to discuss either way, isn't it?
