NASA is releasing new apollo landing site images
show user profile  npcph
NASA announced that they are releasing new satellite images of the Apollo landing sites. Seems weird that they are releasing it as the Apollo 18 movie hits the theaters. They must be trying to help out the cover up. I'm still up in the air if i believe they made it to the moon or not in 69. seems like a big thing to fake, but it also seems kind of amazing that they were able to do it on the first try with very little problem and no previous experience with landing on other planets. And only basic computers. And the fact that we have never been back in 30 years. and now they are saying it will be 10 years before we would have any possibility to have a viable plan to return. in 1969 they were able to do it with only 4 years of planning. Makes you wonder if it really happened. who thinks we made it and who thinks it was faked.

No offense intended, but if you listened to all the evidence for a moon landing, you would have no doubt whatsoever that it was all very real. Every single crackpot theory has been disproved.

There is no doubt whatsoever that it all happened.

Not even one.

Zero.

Name me one doubt you have, and I will counter it!

ha. that's nothing.

we put one satellite in space all by ourselves. in 1971.

that's how cool we are. go uk space programme !

oh wait, you've kind of done a bit better than that. nice one.

hopefully we get a permanent base up there soon though with the state the economy's looking it might be a while.

Shame we lost the codes to access the British satellite. Typical.

it's an old pos. don't know why they're bothering. would be better to put the time/energy/funding into building something new & up to date.

same with the rebuild of that old ww2 deciphering computer at blechley. bleedin' waste of time & money imo.

forever looking backwards. that's the uk for you.

Actually, the UK is a world leader in satellite technology. We have a thriving satellite industry.

yup beagle two is roaring round mars, unlocking the secrets of the red planet unlike those unreliable us rovers.

oh wait ...

actually, it might be. no-one knows what the fek happened to it !

though the lack of wheels would have made moving about challenging even if it did make it down in one piece.

No, that was a piece of shite created by a farmer and his students. It never slowed down, and simply hit the ground, miles from where it should have been.

Also, the Beagle 2 wasn't a satellite.

I know but my argument would have run out of steam if I didn't go off on a tangent.

still there is progress in the works. the russians are soon to put a space hotel in orbit.

so you can shag in zero G and look out the window & stuff. if you're loaded.

great.

Lol, good point, AS.

Bigelow Aerospace are pretty close too with their inflatable units. Two have been inflated in orbit, and are still working as expected.

Not doubting the reality of the moon landing but there's something that has always puzzled me.
When you look at the giant rockets and huge fuel tanks needed to escape earth's gravity, that tiny pod looks really, well, tiny.
I mean sure the gravity on the moon is about 6 times less. But it's like all you need to take off is a healthy fart!
Strange.

basically, this is all going to be driven by sex. like the internet.

after you've shagged in low earth orbit, you're going to want to shag on the moon.

so someone will build a moon hotel.

dominos has already figured this out & is planning ahead.

It does look odd. However, the rocket motor used to launch the Apollo Lunar Module from the moons surface is not that tiny. It had 16,000 N of force.

The Lunar Module weighed almost nothing, as it had no real stresses placed on it, and was not protected in any way. It was mostly engine. But, I know what you mean, it doesn't look right.

16,000 N is not that much. The equivalent of about 1.6 tons on earth.
I say next time use a catapult.
Or a large elastic band.
Or 3 astronauts on a beans diet for a week and some clever piping and valves.

& star trek (when it was good) was basically about James T Kirk going round the universe shagging.

when they took that out it got boring.
