Well I can see that you are making a great effort here IX, I will give you credit for that. However I just don't think your arguments are sticking up well.
who said they were surprised of how the moon looks?!
Well, when you are surprised how the moon looks, it is because you have never been there.
what the heck are you talking about?
You cannot possibly have any idea living on earth of how some distant planet or moon will look.
who the hell said anything about what the moon is supposed to look like???
It must be a requirement for you to drop all preconcieved notions of what you believe other planets look like.
You cannot possibly expect these notions to stick to the same rules we have on earth.
it made no sense . . .
I hope that made sense.
are you burned out?
Have fun in this burnout of a thread.
Keep fighting the good fight Phage, until they beat you into submission eventually =)
I understand Phage; you i do not.

Originally posted by pepsi78Look I had the pictures, with the lem suspended on a platform on a moon set in the desert, with painted craters on the set, with people going out of their way to blow up the desert just to make craters.
The moon adventures in the Nevada desert were done because America needed to look strong in front of the comunist party at the time of the cold war.

The lem was never tested before it went to the moon.
The lem is not capabile of doing a vertical landing from orbit.
It's impossible. If you have evidence of a flying device preforming a similar task let me see it.

You don't think they slowed down before hitting the dirt? What speed do you suppose it hit the moon then?
The primary guidance, navigation and control system (PGNCS) on the LM was developed by the MIT Instrumentation Laboratory. The Apollo Guidance Computer was manufactured by Raytheon. A similar guidance system was used in the Command Module. A backup navigation tool, the Abort Guidance System (AGS), was developed by TRW.
To learn lunar landing techniques, astronauts practiced in the Lunar Landing Research Vehicle ( LLRVAt the start of the Apollo program in 1960, there were no simulators for would-be moonwalkers to learn the art and finesse of landing on the lunar surface. So, as the program got under way, NASA began planning for such simulators. Three types were develop), a flying vehicle that simulated the Lunar Module on earth.
