Cmon folks- *snip* the piece of junk Landsats from which Google earth gets ther images are able to get resolutions 100x times better than that- and they cost a few millions- not the Billions that Hubble did. I can see the inividual shingles on my house from Google earth- but Hubble- with many times the power of Landsat can only resolve "10 meters" *snip*

hubble could resolve object only 10 metres or bigger so it would not be able to see the apollo stuff. In any case they didnt build hubble to satisfy a few moon conspiracy oddballs and wouldnt waste precious observation time in doing so.

- Accoring to this- Hubble has TEN TIMES the resolution of previous telescopes-not to mention that there is no disturbance from the atmosphere- the bane of all earthbound telescopes. Her is another excerpt- seems NASA does not agree with the assumption stated in a previous post about "wasting time" on the big scope "Anyone can apply for time on the telescope; there are no restrictions on nationality or academic affiliation. Competition for time on the telescope is extremely intense, and the ratio of time requested to time available (the oversubscription ratio) typically ranges between 6 and 9." Is there anyone here well versed in these matters that can clarify any of this- please respond.
"The mirror and optical systems of the telescope were the most crucial and complex part, and were designed to exacting specifications. Telescopes typically have mirrors polished to an accuracy of about a tenth of the wavelength of visible light, but because the Space Telescope was to be used for observations ranging from ultraviolet to near-infrared with ten times better resolution than the best previous telescopes, its mirror needed to be polished to an accuracy of 1/20 of the wavelength of visible light, or about 30 nanometres"
