Why are you saying these things to OP? He hasn't revealed his opinion yet. From the sound of it, he seems to be on the fence and desires the enlightened minds of 4chan, such as yourself.

Personally I don't believe a word of it. I don't believe a man could pilot a shaky ass vessel like the Apollo all the way to the moon while accounting for all the extraneous variables.

I'd love so much if any of these morons could do some little research before jumping into this sort to bolshet conclusions.

Look at the budget of the sixites, you retard.
>>
>>7801656
NASA spending went from .5% of US Spending in 1960 to a peak of 4.41 in 1966 to 2.31
while the defense budget stayed at pretty much around 10% of us spending all through the 60%
so at no point did NASA's budget even get to half of what the defense budget was.
if you add up the numbers for the entire decade the defense budget would still be way higher
so do some research before you start calling people retarded, you waste of energy

They had to build spacecraft using technology that hadn't been invented to go somewhere nobody had ever been. It's like you refuse to think critically about anything.

I watched it on tv. And all the previous missions. it was a very very difficult enterprise. The US reputation was in tatters after indo-china and Gagarin. They had to do it and they did. However:-
It was a 'bootstrap' operation.
I am not too convinced by the quality of the video of the following missions.
But yes, YES they did. At least 3 times.

Those that actually do research end up changing their minds. Therefore the only ones you hear from are the ones who don't know shit.

They were just touring around in orbit, where all the action was and still is. I think it was all done to perpetuate the cold war fraud and just got carried away with the TV moon shows, but after just one airing people were already tuning out. No one really cares about going to some place that's easier to look at with telescopes and what not.

Can someone even prove that they made it to the moon ?

The U.S has wasted trillions over the years on a single plane that has yet to work properly and has killed several pilots.

these are some facts

>>7802800
Because people would rather live in a world where the system is controlling them and lying to them, since it removes all responsibility from their own terrible actions and failures.

It's better if we haven't been to the moon, because that would explain why your life sucks, via international conspiracy to keep free americans in the dark.

I understand but there`s really something that we can utilize from the moon other than training?

Like research facilities would be unique there?
other mineral resources or even space tourism?
>>

>2016 and we can't do it

Well, we no longer use Saturn V rockets and actually care much more about moving resources and equipment to our orbiting laboratory than putting humans on a surface with nothing but dust.
>>
>>7802912
The real reason the USA hasnt gone back to the moon is because there is no real reason to go back to the moon.

No geo-political threat, no fight for the ultimate highground = no insane funding to send men to other planets.

Just watch, if China starts gearing up for a manned moon landing NASA will be right there with them. Theres no way USA will let some gook bastards go back to the moon before they do.

https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/List_of_retroreflectors_on_the_Moon

I'd really like to know what the arguments of moon landing hoax conspiracy theorists are against retroreflectors placed by astronauts on the moon.
>>
>>7803029
They could have placed them there via unmanned missions. Also, the moon is a very reflective body with a high albedo. Any laser rangefinder capable of remaining coherent through the earth's atmosphere could easily deliver a clear reading. The reflectors would be massively redundant.

*China* has been able to send rovers to the moon; what makes you think it's that much harder to send humans?

Besides the pictures
The videos.
The rocks they brought back.
The landing site is visible with a god damn telescope for God sakes.
The Russians confirming that USA landing on the moon with there own data.
All of that^
Then no there is no proof

"RC" manufactures toy cars and flying toys

NASA + RC = NASCAR

obviously ther are no cars on the moon so remove the "C"

We are left with nasa + r

Nasa takes us to the moon but in order to reach NASA we must remove R

Moron - R = moon

Anyone who thinks we landed on the moon using 60s tech and then somehow broadcast it live on TV is an absolute moron

Even the japanese space probe that surveyed the moon was barely able to capture the sites
>>
>>7801670
>does huge defense budget deny the possibilty of of space exploration?
To some extent, yes. Defence firms are usually in the defence and aerospace business so when money pours into defence there is less manpower to do space.
>>
>>7801779
>The US reputation was in tatters after indo-china and Gagarin.
Add Sputnik to that one. The US was caught off balance and pants down. Next was Laika so it was clear this was no fluke. Launch a dog with life support into orbit and you know you can launch a major H-bomb to strike anywhere on Earth with impunity.

The US panicked and with very, very good reasons.

>>7802385
>The U.S has wasted trillions over the years on a single plane that has yet to work properly and has killed several pilots.
And more money will have to be burned to reach operational status. The life support in F-35 is the same as in F-22 and has killed several pilots. Problem is that dead pilots hammer into the ground and debugging the result is non-trivial. I haven't even see they know the root cause yet.
>>
>>7803040
>Also, the moon is a very reflective body with a high albedo.
No. Not unless you consider asphalt as a "very reflecting body".

>>7802956
>Just watch, if China starts gearing up for a manned moon landing NASA will be right there with them.
If the Chinese claim the Peaks of Eternal Light (*) the US will have a problem. Sure, you cannot own the moon but like on the South Pole you can still occupy an area. And the PELs are strategically and militarily important. One is believed to be near Shackleton which it is believed to contain water ice which is also extremely important for life support and interplanetary journeys.

(*) The Wikipedia article on PELs is a bug ridden hive of scum and villainy.
