...a system of forcefields that would allow living matter to cross through the van allen radiation belts...
Look at the Technology advances since then! holy smoke. why is it that we have not officially been back?
...why is it that we cant get there much faster and have not even colonised the moon yet?
37 years is such a long time. advances in technology with everything have taken huge leaps and bounds so surely it has with space exploration tech too??
IS THERE a secret agenda that we dont know about?
have man been back without us knowing?
China on track for moon mission
an effort to launch lunar orbiting satellites will be supplanted in 2007 by a program aimed at accomplishing an unmanned lunar landing. A program to return unmanned space vehicles from the moon will begin in 2012 and last for five years, until the manned program gets underway" in 2017, with a manned Moon landing some time after that. 
It was proven, the space shuttle went deeper than it ever did, and the astronaults started getting white outs...
... and then they retreated to lower orbit...
...so you say hoax huh...
... your gonna need more than a word boss....
...just search ATS for the proof...
The inner Van Allen Belt extends from an altitude of 700–10,000 km (0.1 to 1.5 Earth radii) above the Earth's surface, and contains high concentrations of energetic protons with energies exceeding 100 MeV and electrons in the range of hundreds of keV, trapped by the strong (relative to the outer belts) magnetic fields in the region.
It is believed that protons of energies exceeding 50 MeV in the lower belts at lower altitudes are the result of the beta decay of neutrons created by cosmic ray collisions with nuclei of the upper atmosphere. The source of lower energy protons is believed to be proton diffusion due to changes in the magnetic field during geomagnetic storms.
Impact on space travel
Solar cells, integrated circuits, and sensors can be damaged by radiation. Geomagnetic storms occasionally damage electronic components on spacecraft. Miniaturization and digitization of electronics and logic circuits have made satellites more vulnerable to radiation, as incoming ions may be as large as the circuit's charge. Electronics on satellites must be hardened against radiation to operate reliably. The Hubble Space Telescope, among other satellites, often has its sensors turned off when passing through regions of intense radiation.
Missions beyond low earth orbit leave the protection of the geomagnetic field, and transit the Van Allen belts. Thus they may need to be shielded against exposure to cosmic rays, Van Allen radiation, or solar flares. The region between two to three earth radii lies between the two radiation belts and is sometimes referred to as the "safe zone".
A satellite shielded by 3 mm of aluminium in an elliptic orbit passing through the radiation belt will receive about 2,500 rem (25 Sv) per year. Almost all radiation will be received while passing the inner belt.
...Eight millirem is about equal to a chest X-ray, and 100 millirem is about a third of the average background level of radiation received by US residents in a year.".  To put this dose into context, while the average background radiation in the US is about 360 millirem per year, the Nuclear Regulatory Commission regulates all workers' of any US nuclear power plant exposure to radiation to a total of 5000 millirem per year.
(A milliRem is 1/1000th of a Rem. According to McGraw-Hill's Dictionary
of Scientific and Technical Terms, a Rem is a unit of ionizing radiation
equal to the amount that produces the same damage to humans as one
roentgen of high-voltage x-rays. The name is derived from "Roentgen
equivalent man." Wilhelm Roentgen discovered ionizing radiation in 1895
at about the same time that Pierre and Marie Curie discovered radium.)

we couldnt go their in the 60's - 70's - 80's - 90's or in the new millenium... still to this date... I have yet seen ... a system of forcefields that would allow living matter to cross through the van allen radiation belts. now, since I do not have the schematic's of a craft that appears to have taken living matter through the belts... are Unidentified Flying Objects ... which we do have.... I am aware of a living engine .... that would be capible of such forcefields if it weren't disected. (second hand knowlege)

Some ATS do tend to go around in circles! One reason why the old, we didn't go to the moon, theories fall down is that Russia and China, to name but two of America's fiercest and most outspoken foes would have to have gone along with it. So would the staff of the radio telescopes all around the world who pointed their equipment into space and listened into the astronauts conversations. A cover up of this magnitude and size would be simply impossible, and implausible, to succesfully pull off.
Oh it certainly was a massive cover-up alright !!
Why was there no stars in the sky when there should have been a blanket of them ??
How could the flag be waving when there's no wind on the moon??
Gus Grissom who was killed back in 67 in a very suspect launch pad fire aboard Apollo 1, was about to expose the whole programme as a charade.

With the US's economy collapse they dont have enough money to go there now of all times.
Oh, they'll find the money, don't worry!!
Over US$803 Billion already spent in Afghanistan and Iraq....money is not a problem.
