Ugh... Stupid Yahoo just HAD to mention Apollo 18.
So wait, we have been to the moon, and have greater capability of going to the moon, yet we are sending a couple of robots?
CAN NASA PLEASE BE FUN AND EXCITING AGAIN? PLEASE?
Astronauts used to be cool. Now they are glorified sailors.
It's obviously the black and white picture of a guy taking a piss in the desert. I can see his foot in the corner.
I guess no one told them about the mirror the Astronauts left on the Moon. We fire a laser at it to determine our exact distance from the Moon. What a bunch of complete retards.
The excuse is probably that we sent a probe to deploy the mirror. Those wackjobs will think of any excuse.
Yeah, it's been there since 1969. Pretty sure we didn't have unmanned probes back then.
Oh, so it's an alien mirror, and everything that happened since 1969 is a NASA conspiracy to cover it up.
I have taken plenty of pictures of the moon and Im pretty sure that its made of cheese. Delicious, delicious cheese.
I fucking hate moon landing conspiracy theorists.
So fucking fake!
Tell me this. If there's no wind on the moon then how was Neil Armstrong able to light his fart, setting Buzz on fire? How was there fire in the vacuum of space? Answer that.
Exactly how much of your tax money would you like to be pissed away on "fun and exciting"? Are we exploring space to discover what's out there, or to give you a geek boner whenever you see an astronaut?
I would like the tax money from perpetual war transferred to the space program.
And yes, exploring space for discovery. Colonizing planets eventually. This is what we need to do. Earth is getting too full. It's time to take terraform research very seriously.
Do kids today dream of becoming astronauts or do they even know the job exists?
I want HD footage of the lunar surface damn it!
As cynical as I am, I still think going to the moon is quite possibly the greatest thing man has ever accomplished. It's just really awesome.
The ones that say we never went are a new bunch of idiots that just started that shit a few years ago. The real conspiracy theory is that the first mission that landed was faked in a studio while the spacecraft orbited as apollo 10 did. The idea was that we weren't ready to pull off the landing by the time Kennedy's time frame ended.
It wouldn't surprise me at all if there was a contingency plan to do just that if we had to. But we didn't have to, we got two in before 1970.
I have no doubt that there is better footage of the Moon out there than what the public gets. I wouldn't be surprised if there is still some shit up there that is classified and they don't want people eyeballing.
It is the greatest thing man has ever accomplished. Sadly it also seems to be the point where mankind has peaked and it has been all downhill since then.
But the Internet.
Good point. Porn is just a click away with a mouse. I guess we can put that in the win column for man.
Terraform research does not require astronauts.
Astronaut is a pointless job that shouldn't exist. Putting men in space is prohibitively expensive, and unnecessary given the current advanced capabilities of our unmanned mission technologies.
Jesus H. Fuckballs, does every member of the human race leave garbage behind everywhere they fucking go? You can't even go to the moon or the summit of Mt. Everest without seeing trash. Enough already, carry out what you carry in!
The moon is the ideal place to build a solar power collection station
