1) Why could we go to the Mooon and Walk on the Moon within a ten year span or less, and yet in the next 35+ years we haven't really accomplished much in space? Or is NASA just a public program to apease the public?
2) Why did we stop so suddenly from further Moon exploration? Does that make sense to you? Or did we really stop?

I am always amazed at the level of incomprehensible nuttiness that is posted here. The universe is a beautiful and awe inspiring place that is strange beyond comprehension. Pushing aside real science that is based on verifiable and repeatable research and experimentation only to embrace the fantastic science fiction that is expounded here is a sign of an inferior intellect, or rather, a person who wants to believe as opposed to one who wants to understand. In the middle ages people like that didn't believe in little green men in flying saucers, they believed in pixies, fairies, trolls and demons. Same $%&* different century!
Rather than reading up on people like the fictitious Col. Wilson, why not got to your favorite bookstore and get a real science book. Take it home and read it. You'll learn all sorts of amazing things that are so much better than science fiction fantasies.

The military tech has been improving accordingly, like the B2, nice plane.... i am sure we all agree that plane uses unconvenctional technology to do what it does.,,, mainly antigravity. I would, and I am sure you too, like an explanation of why did this plane cost over $2 Billion each?? $2 Billion!!!! Hello!! What the hell does this plane has inside that costs so much more than any other super advanced plane? yet we fly that ungly flinstone era space shuttle.

It's simple. There is nothing else to achieve by going to the moon again.

Those two questions are connected, so I will give you the same answer for both. The American taxpayer is not willing to provide the funding that NASA needs to do those things. Folks aren't calling for an increase in NASA's budget, which means it is not being argued by Congress, which means they aren't getting what they need.

Your so called 'answer' is pretty way off course and shrouded in ignorance! It seems you keep harping on the same argument like a gramophone needle stuck in a groove. How many times has it been mentioned in this thread that NASA HAS VERY LITTLE TO DO WITH BLACK PROJECTS???? NASA is funded mostly from tax payers money. Black projects by CIA (drug money etc) and other slight-of-hand under-the-board appropriations that few know of.
So let's not get too hyper that you're being screwed. You're not! Very little of your tax is going toward funding black programs. They are not so naive as to do so due to the risk of something called accountability and possible exposure through the Freedom of Information Act, etc.

The entire sum of the drug trade could not fund the programs that are described here. Now who is the ignorant one?

Mike, another spectacular thread what a surprise!
If NASA and the Air Force were to pull these off, how come not many countries know about this? Russia? China? Europe?
How do they manage to hide that technology from satellites, spies, leaks,
and things of that nature?

Do us all a favor and prove you're not a "pseudoskeptic/disinformant" and back up your declarations with some hard facts for a change instead of your repetitious personal attacks and unsubstantiated claims.
For someone who's "wasting his time" you certainly show little regard for wasting the time of others.
Please, if this is all you can bring to the discussion, maybe your time would be better spent elsewhere.
