OP, you're looking at the outside skin ofthe Lunar Module, and deciding that it's construction is too flimsy?

Did you know Neil Armstrong the first man on the moon, has given hardly any interviews about his time on the moon.
He is wheeled out when needed to make a quote.
If you really went to the Moon you would be on every TV channel going on and on about it.
You wouldn't be able to shut up about it.

Yes, the men that endeavored to travel to the moon and back were very brave men.
Some if them (not the ones on Apollo 13) landed and came back.
No, I would not have been brave enough to do what they did, I would have been terrified the whole time if I had been forced to do it.
One tiny thing goes wrong and you die.
Hats off to all the brave women and men that have risked their lives to travel in space.... and continue to do so!
I am sure many would sign up to use the same tech again now, so why is it that no one is going ?

Aaand there it is!
Hey OP, did you know that soil samples brought back by one of the Russian landers was virtually identical to that from Apollo 12?
I doubt you did, and in fact I doubt you care!

Whoa you're truly one of those people who appose or deny something as biautiful piece of technical achievements mankind ever witnessed.
Well I will not dare to ask an astronaut who walked on the moon that the lunar module was a fake, but that's me , and I still believe that many things man achieved in space is real , and that from this module learned a great deal from spacrafts
, probably more then we ever will know..
And the lunar module has saved the Apollo 13 crew for what I know..

Seems often the biggest non believers are the ones who haven't done much investigation on the program and equipment.
Just a quick look at some pics and then certain it must fail and therefore is fake. I'm glad that isn't the way reality works.
A GOOD MANY calculations on how all of this supposedly went down , are either missing or "not shared".
And frankly even hypothetical calculations cannot seem to pinpoint everything down.
Well, there is the public relations branch of NASA, they occasionally screw up. Then there's the admin, that's another story. But the science part, the physics, that's quite solid.
How is it, that you find absolutely no fault in all of the information you have received from NASA.
