All you have to do is take a single laser and shine it at the proposed coordinates of the mirrors, and somewhere else...measure the difference in returning strength of the beam. If they are the same, then yes there are no mirrors.
Prove to me this has been done. I have been proven to by others that there are mirrors. You need to provide the proof they are not there. You have provided well reasoned speculation as to their existence, but have not proven they do not exist.
Granted - I do not have the financing to run the experiments myself. Next time I go to campus, I will consult with the astrology department and see if I can arrange a laser bounce on two different areas of the moon (as per the previous example). I WILL do this, would this satisfy you? Would you like any other conditions to be met?
ETA: I will be talking with Laura Cayon about these possibilities.
Again, ETA: I do not mean to belittle you, the "Think - Just Think" is directed to you and everyone. It is directed to you the moment you get on this website when you read "Deny Ignorance", sorry you took that so personal.

What ive been asking for years and no one has given a solid answer is WHY? Why did they fake the moon landing? Ive seen enough evidence to believe it was a hoax but im still confused as to why?

Now let's be honest here you DID try to belittle me and a simple apology would suffice... Your comment was aimed at me and so there is no other way to take it other than personally... Even if you meant it for a wider audience, that audience included ME. It is a common ad-hom attack and nothing more...
If I told you that you do not think, how would you take it? What would I be saying about you? Man up, apologize and move on. I hold no grudge...edit on 27-11-2012 by mee30 because: (no reason given)
Yes I'm going to do it. And Yes I know you can't prove something doesn't exist, that is my point. It has been proven it exists, and no one can disprove it exists. Hence our little conspiracy.
If you can't trust the results of a laser bounce test that I have conducted here at Purdue University, then what can you trust? You may as well throw everything to the wind.
ETA: Yeah I will see how many bounces can be done, and at what positions. If all the values are basically random, I would concede no mirror is up there. I'll be sure not to let the dudes sway my opinion lol, I won't let them know this is about a "conspiracy" or anything or they may not take me seriously.
I would take it seriously and think about it in more depth, as I have been. I'm not apologizing, grow some balls lol. All I said was Think. Do it. I'm doing it, and if you told me to do it I would do it harder.
ETA: Oh you think I told you that you did not think. I apologize
ETA: Don't let web text muddle your view of me! If we met in person, this would be a wonderful conversation filled with laughs and good times (and I'm sure a few beers).

Wow. Another tired old moon landing hoax thread. I can't even be bothered to argue with these ridiculous theories any more. They've been proven time and time again to be utter BS. The shadows, the flappy flag, the moondust, the lack of stars, have all been satisfactorily explained. And now here comes another one...an ambiguous white blob that apparently might be a cloth, if you squint.
I figured I would just record it happening on my phone. If I tell them we are trying to prove a mirror exists on the moon, they will all look at my like I'm a wacko and probably will refuse to run the tests.
Despite this, I am going to run the "I'm just curious how it works" line to get the ball rolling. Perhaps drop the idea that "how do we know the mirrors are there?" idea. Maybe even take the route that "Couldn't debri or meteorites have damaged the mirror over the decades?". Hopefully something to provoke the idea that they should just be absolutely sure the mirror exists.
I may also see if there are alternative methods of proving the mirrors are up there, but I really do want to see the test too lol.
Bah, splitting hairs It's...difficult to talk in a forum like this. Thanks for bearing with me
Anywho, I can't really lock down any locations for Lunar Laser Ranging equipment on campus. Still digging around, but I'm just going to e-mail a few people and hope for the best tomorrow. If they tell me to head to Bloomington (they have an observatory) I will be mightily upset ha. I have to go down there for my sister's college visit soon enough, so it would not be a deal breaker.
