There was sweet FA gained from landing on the moon other than the equipment and process needed to land. From a scientific stand point the moon is a waste of time.The Americans have apprently been there & gained the science 50 years ago. Why has no other country ever gone there? Do they just accept their version?
the laugh face didnt do my reaction justice. I actually heartily guffawed out loud for about 20 seconds.Doesn't matter.
If it was a hoax, I would argue that keeping all the people who would have to have been in on it quiet would have been a greater achievement than actually going.
On a serious note, all you sceptic fruitcakes will have to finally eat humble pie shortly. The Japanese are planning orbital missions around the moon to photograh it in detail for the first time. What does this mean you ask? Well if the Yanks were indeed there, there should be a beat up Kingswood (probably on blocks now), half a dozen golf balls, a few flags, and a sign saying "Neil woz ere" on the surface. And if this doesn't do the trick, the Chinese plan to be there next decade.
