That would depend on where it is you would like to go and how long you have to get there.
You could equally well argue that the craters are the result of the activities of huge rock eating termites that died out millions of years
ago and biodegraded to form Moon dust.
Lets stick with my outrageous theory. Thanks.
So the simpler and far more logical answer is that the Moon has approximately one sixth gravity and they did the trip in a vacuum with the
reported use of rocket engines which did not produce a crater as the rocky surface under the dust layer is far too hard to be damaged by a low power
rocket which was throttled way back and actually cut out before the LEM hit the surface.
Yes I noticed how Armstrongs boot print failed to make the slightest dent in the surface of the moon which pretty much proves your theory of a rocky
You see I understand that you only post this stuff for discussion purposes and do not represent it as fact etc. etc., but without any evidence
to support what you say it really does end up reading as some kind of game you like to play with other posters rather than a serious presentation of
Rational, conventional, repeatable, scientific, serious, are all types of restraints that keep modern man from exploring the unknown. Its what
separates us from the 'dark ages'. But were the 'dark ages' really dark?
The main problem with ferreting out the truth is that the truth 'undermines' everything we have been taught in school and college. Its like going
back to 'square one', and people, particularly those highly educated are not willing to go back 'and start all over'. They are comfortable in
their warm, fuzzy scientific beliefs. They don't want to risk peer review. They believe hook, line and sinker the lie about the moon being a barren
chunk of dirt, with no gravity, with no air, and so dry that, left unprotected your body would turn to dust.
Of course, that is nonsense. The moon has gravity, about 64% of earths, a breathable atmosphere, huge cities, giant constructs, vegetation, lakes,
undeground laboratories. But it is a secret. And no secret this important is going to be easily discovered or uncovered.
The devil is in the detail. For instance, most scientists can't tell you at what altitude all Apollo missions orbited the moon. But its 60 miles. So
what? Well if the moon is a quarter the size of earth and its gravity is only 1/6th why orbit at a wasteful 60 miles? Why not orbit at 15? The reason
is that at the speed Apollo approached the moon, 60 miles, with a margin of safety, was the closest it could orbit because of the moons gravity, which
is about 64% that of earths. It HAD to orbit WAY OUT THERE.
Take a look at this picture of the moon taken in January of 1946 by the Lick Observatory. You see that big explosion of dust and dirt. No thats not
the LEM taking off, But whatever it is it proves conclusively that the moon has an atmosphere without which the dust and dirt could not form a cloud.
You can see the column of dust/debris/smoke drifting to the northwest which means there must be wind. All of which cannot occur without an atmosphere.
And to have an atmosphere you must have gravity: (1. The base of the explosion 2.The distance travelled by the column of dust/debris before rising 3.
the column of dust/debris rising to the top of the atmosphere)

Or this bucket wheel excavator in Copernicus:
So, yes, I do advance my theories for discussion and, yes, they are really 'out there'. But my evidence is not theory. It is in these photos
presented here and hundreds more like it.
