Did we ever really land on the moon?

@BillRM,
Hey, jackass . . . if you want to make this a name-calling festival, i'll be more than happy to comply.

First, allow me to dispense with you idiotic straw man--you seem incapable of posting without lying about what i have written. At no time have i stated or implied that "graining" (as you put it) access to space is worthless. You know what it makes of you when you claim that i've written things which i haven't written? It makes you a LIAR.

Read the goddamned link i provided, bright boy. A gentleman with the expert credentials you were whining about and a former employee of NASA says pretty much what i have been saying--the cost of sending manned missions into space just aren't worth it. In the distant future, we may very well enjoy a high degree of success with unmanned, automated exploratory missi0ns, or mining expeditions. Try to get it through your thick skull that sending people into space is extremely expensive, in orders or magnitude greater than sending machines.

And you continue to miss the central point of everything i've been saying, which is getting someone to sign the check . . . getting someone to pay for it. What the hell do you intend to do, put a gun to the heads of the American taxpayers and make them buy your your pretty toys?

You still haven't told us what expertise you claim to have, after making your snotty remarks about Intrepid--but i'm becoming more and more convinced that you are as near to a congenital idiot as one can get and still be able to operate a keyboard.

Not that my observation is correct, but it seems like this thread has not attracted those posters that are on the other side of the pond? Is space really a U.S. domain (no Russian posters, I guess?) for A2K? Perhaps, less interest in space by the European/other continent posters?

England have a long and proud history concerning promoting interplanetary travel.

Author C Clark was the one who got me interested in the subject long before any man reach earth orbit and the British Interplanetary Society have a long and proud history.



That is just ducky. Where is the British space program? I would wonder if they are travelling into space vicariously through their allies across the pond (the U.S.)?

Are you referring to Arthur C. Clark, the science fiction writer?

So you come along five weeks late, and hope to stir the turd? That's pathetic, Finn, even by your legendarily low, low standards. Good luck . . .

@hater,
I see we have another moron who doubts the moon landing.
Even if we don't include the reflecting prisms that had been installed on the moons surface there are other pieces of data that you have no explanations for except to realize that weve been to the moon several times (These prisms allow anyone with a laser ranging device who has the coordinates of Apollo 11 and 14 landings to reflect a laser beam back to their site so they can measure lunar tides and how fast the moon is slipping away from us)

Weve got good photography of the various landing sites. Heres one where you can even see the LEM and tracks from the Lunar Rover used in Apollo 17

@farmerman,
This particular moron hates anything related to space exploration. He has posted on every related thread similar tripe.

@timur,
Isn't the Trolling Summit just beyond the Sea of Tranquility?

Ah yes, the Mare Traquilitatis . . . although actually, the Trolling Summit is just beyond the Sinus Iridium, the Bay of Rainbows, which is on the shore of the Mare Imbrium, the Sea of Storms. We can only hope that the barque of Hater/Mark Noble is wrecked by one of those storms.
