The Moon, finally or not.? I have questions like why it took them so long and did it happen if they did? Things like that. I would like to see it happen for real though, it would be the finality of 'yes we went' for that crowd to settle it once and for all.

Moving along this is what they had to say.

NASA is going back to the moon — somehow, someway. The White House has ordered the agency to put American boots back on the lunar surface. The major unknowns at this point include the when, how, scale of the operation and cost. Also unclear is what exactly NASA would accomplish with such a mission and how it might affect plans for a human mission to Mars. NASA put 12 astronauts on the moon between 1969 and 1972. With the death Friday of Apollo 16’s John Young, only five of those astronauts are still alive, and they range in age from 82 to 87. No human being has been beyond low Earth orbit since the end of the Apollo program.



NASA is a $19 billion agency that does far more than just launch people into space. It spends roughly $5 billion a year on science missions, including robotic exploration of Mars and other planets. But the human spaceflight program has always been the heart of the agency and the foundation of its political support in Congress. The truism on the Hill has always been “No Buck Rogers, no bucks.”

they did it real quick not to long ago I'm sure they have some telemetry data right?

Apparently not.



No trace of any telemetry data from the worlds renown moon missions exists according to NASA, The care takers of Mans recorded greatest achievement.

If they want to get back to the moon, they will have to start building things like they did back in the sixties so they don't break down so easy. Technology tends to have problems a lot, a simple energy spike can incapacitate things the way they build things these days. I'm guessing that it will be very expensive to get someone up there now, the cost of the technology will overshadow the cost of the actual craft.

After President Barack Obama arrived in the White House, a presidential committee studied NASA’s program and declared it was “on an unsustainable trajectory” due to a mismatch between ambitions and funding. Obama killed Constellation and ordered NASA to visit an asteroid, with Mars still the horizon goal.

When President Trump took office, people in the space community expected a pivot back to the moon, restoring the Bush-era goal. The administration resurrected something called the National Space Council, with Vice President Pence in charge. In October, Pence made a speech saying NASA would return to the moon. In December, President Trump made that goal the official U.S. space policy.

oh, perfectly normal... I wouldn't expect them to save the data that got them to the moon, the most historic feat in human history

If we didn't fake the moon landing and we actually did land on the moon, my only question is why we didn't just fake it sooner. Gotta win the pissing contest with the Russians. Much cheaper to fake it than to make it.

I think we did go to the moon but not as many times as they say we did. I think only one or two successful trip occurred and ea lot of the pictures we have of that were concocted here on earth in a staged set somewhere.

I think SpaceX has a better shot than NASA right now. At least hey are doing and building things.

Screw the Moon.

Mars or bust!

But they made gold tinfoil just to wrap the thing with!

Build very large manned orbiting science stations and hotels. Mine the asteroid belt. Build a solar collectors in closer orbit of the Sun. Build a space elevator. Have an operational Moon base. Extend the Internet out with orbiting communications satellites around every planet (and most moons). Oh, and go to Mars.

Put simply, be a spacefaring species while we can and as soon as we can.

We won't know until we really try.

Agree our tax dollars should be supporting a Mars endeavor. The Moon, done that, and let private industry pay for what future infrastructure will be built there. As for the military.... there are some that would say that is a moot point...

It should say Make NASA Great Again; Oh wait..never mind carry on. The tinfoil looks good though.

Was thinking SpaceX myself, a better option i'd say.
