When someone WANTS to believe in something, they will tend to find evidence to support their belief system. Some can't handle a dark truth, even if it's true, they try to somehow make it sound less evil.

Huh. Good point. Ever realize it works just as well against you?

To all you nay-sayers.

There is more evidence to prove we DID go to the Moon that there is saying we didn't.

I personally think the big question is why we haven't gone back.

You can convince me a few rock samples from the surface or near surface was sufficient enough to make a determination that we aren't going back.

And NO, it isn't because Aliens told us not to...

Sorry-I guess. But, that is actually a good thing-if you really think about it.

Manned missions to the moon haven't been launched due to very low reward for very HIGH risk to man, (just one of a million things could go wrong to kill not only the mission but the life of the men too), which missions to the moon, lasted 2 weeks tops with less than half of that time ON the moon picking up rocks and taking a fraction of analytical measurements in a tiny area that robots can do without life support, risk of death to astronauts, and survey much more area with better scientific instruments for the data we are after, and require about a third of the fuel and a 10th of the expense, or less, and last for years. That is just one mission, not counting all of the R&D support to lead up to a mission to the moon that provides ZERO reward for expense.

Apollo missions went to the moon to win the space race of the 60's, once accomplished, and we found a lifeless rock, continued missions to the moon provided near zero reward for investment and even the public lost interest in men on the moon, (makes sense because it wasn't their personal trip to the moon, it was astronaut's).

I find it really hard to understand how people can't understand why we, or any economy on earth, haven't sent men to the moon since, FOR WHAT?

Dry weight of an Apollo 15-17 launch, nearly 6.7 MILLION pounds (each); returned to earth, about 10,000 pounds (each), of that 10,000 pounds the maximum payload other than the craft, men, and life support, about 100 pounds.

Like that return of investment? Think you can make money on that ratio?

just think whats going on through these guys heads while they are up there, must be unimaginable. I remember thinking how badass it was running around the moon and looking at earth while just playing mass effect

these men were up there doing the unthinkable, seeing what nobody else will probably ever see, only to come home and get crapped on by flakes and morons. we now live in a world where youtube crazies carry more weight and cred then real scientist.

Nice post bro. On another note, Google Earth (Google Mars) has some really nice photos from the rover that are the most amazing pitcures I have ever seen of planet Mars. They are panoramic and you can zoom in on rocks. It's like you're there, it's amazing. ~SheopleNation

Still awaiting any comment on the video (about just before half way) where he tosses the case and almost falls-catching himself. Seems pretty fast.

And, when the module lands. watch the pad. There should be a larger indentation-look at the imprint a simple footprint leaves in the Talcum like dust.
