Presumption is the root of all evil my friend. Never presume.
but I'm not hearing much sense I'm afraid?
So you're claiming to be a test pilot. Prove it. Also, I would like to see your credentials for your expertise in spaceflight. And lunar ops, if you have them.
SPACEFLIGHT credentials? This would be any proof that you've flown something in the vacuum of space and actually know what you're talking about when it comes to flying "in space"
Cookie do you actually have anything to bring to the table regarding man not landing on the moon?

That ladies and gentleman is how the cookie crumbles.

So Denver22 what can you tell me about the whole deal then? What do you know, come on I'm all ears, where is your personal proof? Or is it another case of "saw it on T.V, read it in a magazine, believe everything anyone tells me".
I have been more than open with you.

Here is NASA's latest try.
Seems they still can't get it right. But of course, everything just came together like a dream in the 1960's with that wonderful technology they had back then................all the way to the Moon!!! Wooosh!
Nasa spokeswoman Lisa Malone said it appears that the methane-and-liquid oxygen-powered lander is a total loss. Nobody was hurt in the unmanned experiment and the flames were put out, she said. In a statement, Nasa said it was probably more a mechanical failure than a control issue. Morpheus is a prototype for a cheap, environmentally friendly planetary lander. Thursday was the first time it had been tested untethered in a free flight. It had performed about 20 flights at Johnson Space Centre in Houston, where it was designed and made, but it was always tethered to a crane, Nasa said. The testing moved from Texas to Florida last week and Morpheus had a successful tether test on Friday. Nasa had planned to run tests for three months. The plan was for flights over a specially created field designed to mimic the surface of the moon, with boulders, rocks, slopes and craters. The lander was built mostly with low-cost, off-the-shelf materials. It was an attempt to use cheaper, more readily available and environmentally friendly rocket fuel. The space agency was considering it as a potential lander for places like the moon or an asteroid, possibly carrying a human-like robot or small rover. Nasa promoted Morpheus as a "green" project because methane is more environmentally friendly than the toxic rocket fuels it uses. Methane, which is the main component of natural gas, is also cheaper and could even be made from ice on the moon or Mars. Morpheus was early in the Nasa experimental "test bed" process and the space agency had not committed to using the lander in any specific flight.
