What does being a USAF pilot have anything to do with it? Besides him being a paid stooge for NASA?
Military officers have training and discipline. They can wear their fingers to the bone without whining like a little girl... or Jarrah.
I think your confusing the Air Force with other the military branches.
Yep. It's like a country club.
Second, the astronauts WERE WHINING about it. Or didnt the numerous comments about how much their fingers hurt using the gloves gave you a clue? Further, your whole comment on the matter has no scientific support; your tossing shots of patriotic pablum into the air.Said the man who declared some guy a "NASA stooge" with no supporting evidence.

No man before or since Apollo has left Earths orbit..
Considering how quickly they managed it you'd think they would have continued..
It's not that odd really. With NASA's shrinking budget, the Apollo program was discontinued due to its high costs.
Let me then ask this question, do you know if Apollo 18, 19 or 20 was already paid for by the tax payers?
