I'm on the fence, the biggest question I have is why haven't we gone back? We did what two hands worth of manned missions, then just stopped? The
moon is enormous, I could think of dozens of remedial experiments to give astronauts to do on the moon, so why not try? We can't possibly learn
everything about the moon from Orbiters, and it's good training for exploration of a celestial body right in our backyards.
When you train scuba divers, you train them in a pool, before dumping them in the big blue yonder, so why not do the same with the moon. Send teams of
Astronauts up to practice for future exploration, run drills of disaster scenarios and right the book of what if's. I know it's pricey, but it's
much pricier to send men to mars or further, as well as more dangerous.
This always has been that fact that makes me go hmm... Why suddenly stop going? I'm aware of the apollo close calls, but part of making mistakes is
learning from them and improving the areas that failed. You can't do that with out trying again.
We can see landing sites from satellites, as well as with some really good telescopes. How ever, you can not see evidence that a man was there. Foot
prints are next to impossible to observe with out getting there to see they are really man made footprints. This remains the only reason I wonder why
no one goes back, as well as NASA creating No fly, no go zones over and on it's previous landing sites.
As far as I'm concerned right now, evidence suggests they went. Lots of questions about it, but too many astronauts corroborate the story, the data
is available to the public, no other nation blew the whistle on them. It's a pretty remarkable accomplishment people want to shoot down. Maybe their
lives are so disappointing, and they're mad they don't have the flying cars media promised them in the "2000's"
There is more data to support a manned mission to the moon, than not. I'm sorry if you can't understand some of the data, but it is/was possible.
