The work was so arduous that Massimino reported the potentially alarming news that a hole was forming in the palm of his glove. But it wasn’t serious enough to force him to retire early.

We already did it! With all of the technological advances, why is it harder to do this now than it was 40 years ago?

To keep them from overheating and to make them look cool.
*But seriously, We could've faked the moon missions. America could have faked it if they wanted to - they did send a man to the moon afterall.

This is why... First you have to get a rocket to point you toward the Moon. Then you separate from this rocket, and expect to be able to steer yourself into orbit around the Moon. Once there, the lander separates from the capsule, then has to land on the Moon, while someone waits in the capsule above the Moon. Then the lander has to pop off of the Moon, then re-connect with the capsule. Then somehow set a trajectory to fall back to Earth from 250,000 miles away. There is no way in hell they could pull this off as many times as we are told.
