    Why doesn't NASA just trot this one out more often to get rid of the whackjobs?

    Because they would claim it was fake too? Besides, why is it appropriate that it's a Falcon feather, as far as I remember the landing craft was called Eagle....

    We never landed on the moon. It was a soundstage.

    Apollo 12's lunar module was the Eagle. Apollo 15's was the Falcon. This video was from Apollo 15.

    Yes, a soundstage built inside a massive vacuum tube... :ha:

    something you've got to wonder though, how is it we have landed on the moon all those times and no one else has done it once? not even 40 years later.

    what's the point, it costs hundreds of billions dollars, and to be fair, its just a bloomin wasteland, nothing new to gather information, besides, China want to land on Mars, and that's what most are concentrating on right now, not to mention, people have died going into space recently because of faulty ships...

    I blame Schwartz.

    Maybe I didn't pay attention enough in Science, but I thought there was no gravity in space, so wouldn't everything be weightless?

    I suppose the moon could be a different story.


    NASA are also looking to have people living on the Moon by 2024

    Well, the moon does have gravity, everything with mass has gravity.

    However whether you believe the moon landings or not, it IS funny that NASA thinks it's technically difficult to go back to the moon or go to Mars. Not that it's expensive, of course it would be expensive, no they're actually saying it's technically difficult....
