Well I actually didn't say we didn't land men on the moon. I merely pointed out there is a very big difference between machinery and men when
considering space travel. However one has to certainly consider the type of machinery we had 50 years ago. They used slide rules then. You cell
phone has more processing power than the lunar module. Hindsight is 20/20 and looking at the stuff were claimed went to the moon, certainly begs some
questions at the very least.
Cell phones/mobiles are S.O.T.A. mobiles were nearly as big as a walkie talkie just a few decades ago, it is not a valid argument, just as it would
not be a valid agruement comparing the Wright brothers to Whittle just a few decades later.
What the astronauts had was S.O.T.A. but yes it was limited, just like some of the crap from Rockwell sold in, "the white heat of technology" on the
back of space exploration like the electronic calculators that found themselves in offices all over the world, which froze up after a 10 second memory
threshold was passed, boy were they crap. However Armstrong's Texas instrument for landing was actually well prepared for the job, and the software
allowed it to carry on the primary tasks, even though it was being given wrong info from elsewhere, while still giving an overload alarm.
Most of all, the men themselves. Armstrong nearly bought it twice in malfunctions. In Gemini 8, and testing the Lunar lander. Before that in 1965,
this is what he told a reporter, (yes he did talk to reporters)
"I rule out the possibility of agreeing to go up if I thought I might not come back, unless it were technically indispensable. Dying in space or on
the moon is not technically indispensable and consequently if I had to choose between death while testing a jet and death on the moon, I'd choose
death while testing a jet."
That's the stuff these guy are made of. So what are the questions you are begging?
