and everything works perfect on the first try? Didnt Neil almost die right before the moon landing cause the lander didnt even work on earth?

No, it worked fine on the Moon, except they couldn't find a decent spot until the last few seconds, and the master computer was giving a data overload alarm non-stop.

The lander wasn't designed to work on earth. He was in the Lunar Lander Research Vessel when it crashed. It wasn't the same thing.

The lander was tested pretty extensively in orbit and on a close approach to the moon before they landed.

how do you practice landing in orbit?

Some things are best left unviewed. I had a great Bruce Woodley accent too.

You zip around and faux dock a lot. It was actually a nice little craft, as far as pilot accounts went.

where are the recent pictures or videos of our leftover artifacts? Anyone??

You practice maneuvering the lander and verifying that it works as designed. Then you make a low approach to the moon surface to make sure it works as advertised in light gravity near the surface.

Then you take all that data, put it in the simulator and train again and again and again.

With no videos of one successful landing? Just a failed one?

Somewhere between the "we never went to the moon" and the "we have bases on the moon" and the "Mars strategic outposts" and the flat earth society I must have gotten lost. As far as I know, we went to the moon; there are still artifacts there from our visits. The rest of the stuff is just bunk as far as I'm concerned.


Do you have any pictures or videos recent of these artifacts from these landings?


Here you go:

Apollo 11
Apollo 12
Apollo 14
Apollo 15
Apollo 16
Apollo 17

Notice at the bottom of of each link they have the raw strip-image with a zoomable interface. You can use your mouse wheel or click on the +/- to control the zoom. See if you can find the landing sites.

Some people have criticized the orbital images of the Apollo sites as being too grainy. What they don't realize is that the crops they see are from much, much larger images. Zooming in on the sites is like taking a picture of the grandstands at a football stadium and zooming the image to find a specific face in the crowd. You can do it, but the image will be lower resolution than an ordinary close-up.

The resolution in the above LROC images is about the same as this picture:



...which, I think is quite adequate for identifying recognizable objects. In this image is a full-sized Apollo Lunar Module mock-up (one of the test articles, actually). Can you find it?

Is this a rumor? Does anyone have proof of anything around here? how about fake moon rocks that turn out to be petrified wood

The LLRV was NOT the lander, but it was successful enough to lead to the LLTV. The LLRV was designed to stimulate the controls needed to land on the moon. It wasn't designed to stimulate the lander, nor was it the lander.

Must be impossible to get clear images nowadays? Not clear at all

So the LLRV should still be on the moon?

If you want to see this from Earth, you'll need to build a telescope who's primary mirror is about 5 football field lengths wide.

The British Beagle 2 Lander has been found on Mars. No man has set foot on Mars to place it there.

Photographs of " Articles " on the Moon don't prove that man accompanied them.

The LLRV didn't go to the moon. It was designed to work on earth. It was never designed to go into space and didn't.

Just because it is not clear to you, that does not mean it is not clear to anyone who understands what they are looking at.

I get the very strong impression that you will not believe, or will willfully refuse to understand anything posted here. Why are you here asking questions if you reject all of the answers?
