The whole idea should be worth looking into.
At least we will verify if stars and be seen from the dark side of the moon.
PRECISELY..............Had we really gone to the moon there would have been a space based "Hubble telescope" in orbit (on the surface of the moon) as
we speak along with a number of other valuable scientific experiments. Hubble orbits the Earth about every 97 minutes at an altitude of about 353
miles - Imagine the quality of images if we had such a telescope on the moon!
Imagine the new discoveries about the universe that would have been accomplished by now! How high is the moon orbit in relation to Hubble - 238,900
Given the American spirit of accomplishment and adventure had we really gone to the moon we would have gone back by now - many times over and we also
would have established territorial rights there by establishing a permanant base.
Its been forty years or so............WHY? And the Russians claim they won't be able to go for another twenty years?
As for the Apollo 11 crew having left an experiment on the Moon called the lunar laser ranging retroreflector array. There is NO PROOF that it really
occurred and the Russians could very easily have planted a piece of hardware - a reflective mirroring device - on the monn during their one of their
un-manned orbital flights - as well as the Americans.
Every word coming from the mouth of NASA is fabricated - We never went to the moon - its all a faked -up lie
