don't think we are quite there yet.
So why not go to Wiki for more info
I was not suggesting that the new rover confirms the reality of the apollo mission. I posted that link as others had been talking about the original
rovers and I thought, as an aside, the new rover would be of interest to the people here. Sorry to confuse you. Also I feel it is relevant because a
lot of CTers like to say that if the apollo missions went to the moon then why don't they just use the same equipment and go tomorrow? Well thats
because technology has changed so much since the 60's. Just look at how much more advanced this new rover is. With all the information we have gained
from the various rovers we have sent out why would not use that to design a better machine. Just having a new rover means they have to redesign
everything else but the basics will most likely remain the same. Take a
I am not sure what relevance a radio telescope has? You don't actually look through radio telescopes. As far as visual telescopes resolving that type
of detail from earth you are just being silly. That would be like using your average backyard scope to find a thumbtack on a mountain miles away, even
if you new where to look it can't resolve that type of detail. I can't even imagine the aperture needed to view the lunar lander from earth. Not
even Hubble can do it. The Moon is 384,400 km away. At that distance, the smallest things Hubble can distinguish are about 60 meters wide. The biggest
piece of left-behind Apollo equipment is only 9 meters across and thus smaller than a single pixel in a Hubble image.
You don't have to wait much longer before we will have pictures of the left behind apollo gear.
Of course the CTers will just claim they are fake for any number of reasons including the illuminati but I look forward to it anyway!
