what missions since, the some ten other apollo (moon landing)missions after that? before the most sucessfull space program was axed?
and since then there has been nobody sent further into space than the immediate close orbit of satalites, like the space station or telescopes.
now, according to speaches made by bush last year, they plan to send americans back to the moon by the end of the decade? if the technology was available some 40 years ago, why will it take so many years of research?
surely the rocket is ready to go?
anyway... reasons why people believe that the moon landins were faked...
1, the available technology, there wasn't even digital wristwatches, yet there was enough technology to send a space ship to the moon?
if this were true surely mission control and nasa massive yearly spend could be resuced to a single 486 computer, (it's still far more technology and computer power than what 'put' people on the moon and back.
2, the space race.
Lets face it, russia launched the first space ship, they sent the first living animals, the first living mamals, brought back the first things alive first and sent the first people to space, they also had a lot more years R&D in rockets thanks to the V2 rockets used in WW2...
America has a strong political enemy, and a space race, the fact is that any massive spending is crippling to economies, america 'had' to be the first to the moon, they'd already lost all the heats in the competition.
so america suddenly comes up from last place to first place in a matter of a couple of years? and gains a massive political advantage in the cold war against russia?
seems a bit too convienient, dont you think?
I mean what is soviet russia had gotten there first? afte the massive space spend it could have easily been the americans revolting against their government rather than the russians...
Lastly, no-one has been since.
Oh, and to the person who said kennedy really wantde to go to the moon and wasn't corrupt... don't make me laugh...
Research Keneddy, frank sinatra, the rat pack, and mob ties.
how kennedy use sinatra and his mob connections to racketeer votes from the poor communities as the mob bosses had control of a massive amount of people. having someone with a lot of 'unelected' or forced power over people on your side is a good way to win elections...
not corrupt.. pft...
message is "power corrupts, and absolute power corrupts absolutly"...
