why don't they use hubbel to photograph the moon up close, or is it too bright for its sensors...

You do understand that those "far off galaxies" are huge and photo's show only their mass and almost zero detail. Don't you
Rather than mix apples and oranges you are mixing a tiny lunar lander with things hundreds even thousands of light years across.

The resolution isn't enough for seeing the hardware on the moon. I've repeated this something like 4 times in 24h

That is pretty cool. I have never heard of Moon Storms before.
Wait till you hear about the sunrise and sunset rays on the moon... a little secret NASA knew since surveyor
They call them Moon Fountains and were sketched by the Astronauts, though I wonder why they didn't just take a photo

ahh but they will claim they are fake - don't want to lose those book sales do we......
ASP is an acronym for "Apollo Simulation Project", which was created in 1961 and operated by the DIA (Defense Intelligence Agency) to "help" NASA with their technical problems by establishing a totally simulated moon mission.
ASP was a total secrecy project along the same lines as the Manhattan Project of World War II. The Manhattan Project ultimately employed some 300,000 people and hardly a word was leaked out.
The ASP base was constructed on land controlled by the (then) Atomic Energy Commission and surrounded by other military bases. Scattered throughout these arid Moon-like properties near Mercury, Nevada are super-secret site after secret site. Top level management was provided by CIA spooks. Interface personnel were hired as needed and paid top dollar and then released as necessary (with the required "never tell" NASA warnings backed by the muscle of the CIA).
"Also installed at the "Cuss" base was the true master control center of which the so-called Mission Control and the Spacecraft Center at Houston were merely satellites or slaves.
The master control of Cuss (MASCONCULL) collected all data, programmed it into a computer which then coordinated the entire moon landing simulation. Since all releases were by well-edited tape, there was no chance of a blooper. Again, the total control of news by the American corporate state set an effective precedent for the totally controlled output of MASCONCULL. From prelaunch countdown to the final descent to the ocean, all sound and video transmissions emanated from the flawless and mechanistic heart of a speciallymodified IBM 370-C computer."

I agree. It's obvious we aren't that interested in exploring space with the technology we posses. I think it is more important to work on our problems down here first, despite my fascination with space. But it's just sad that we spend anything at all if we can't spend what needs to be spent. And yet, we can't fix our problems down here - that much is certain.

Like I have said before xuby even if someone took you to the Moon you would claim they faked your trip!!!
There was no lime to sightsee. I was concentrating on the computers, and Neil was studying the attitude indicator, but I looked up long enough to see the flag fall ove
