I've got this mate right...no really, an ACTUAL mate, who thinks that not only did they go to the moon but that NASA has never stopped going to the moon. They just stopped telling us. Further more he's said to me during the course of many weird and wonderful conversations, (none of of which have required any chemical enhancement because they get weird enough as it is), that he thinks we're already on Mars citing the $40 trillion black hole in the budget as the funding source.
I had a laugh but then later wondered who's to say he's wrong?

Hmm interesting topic.... my thoughts...

It was an environment of a race to beat the ruskies at everything. They won the first person in space... next logical step was moon, no expense spared.

Then people got disinterested, big companies wanted the government to spend money on war, the Congress decided spending billions per year to send a man on the moon is not going to achieve much except bragging rights..... atleast Mars can be colonized...or so they tell us.
Blame it on the phone auto correct

I guess if we can learn to live on a planet that's
had most of its carbon dioxide atmosphere blown away by solar winds due to the lack of an intrinsic global magnetic field,
is bombarded so hard by radiation that the very instrument sent there to measure it got fried by it.
Has a night-time temperature of minus 73 degrees Celsius
Where almost all water exists only as ice....

Then its safe to say we'll be able to survive on earth for a while yet. ... 40 trillion well spent :thumbsup:

Next time you see ya slightly wacky mate, tell him that Neil Armstrong never went to the moon ... he came from the moon, want proof? what's Neil A spelt backwards ?
The whole lunar landing thing was actually rescue mission to save the stranded alien piolt.

Hey fellas, I heard on this morning news India has launched a moon mission to the moon ! True ! Their looking for water around the moons South Pole apparently. I reckon that’s a cover up . Their secretly opening the first 7 eleven/ quickie-mart on the moon ! Moon-slushy anyone ? I think due to resupply problems the pies might be a bit old !

I am legit on the fence with this one reasons are as follows:

- I wasnt born when all this was going down
- I dont personally know anyone who "went"
- I dont know anyone personally involved with the missions
- There is video of nasa expert scientists admitting we dont have the means to cross the van allen belts
- There is video of nasa expert scientists saying that "we used to have the technology to goto the moon, but they destroyed it all??
- Apparently they destroyed all tech needed to get to the moon, yet have tech in development to goto mars? hard to believe they would be able to goto mars and not the moon
- Mars has little to no atmosphere, no breathable air and extreme radiation exposure, just like the moon, yet no moon base to train future mars pilgrims? not convincing.
- There are countless videos picking apart the moon landing, and only one moon landing video (that is picked apart)
- The moon landing took place during an era of extreme propaganda, exiting was nazi propaganda and bolshevik and incoming was soviet and USA and UK propaganda and cold war antics.... so who knows.
- it still takes hours to days to stream in images from stellar probes yet somehow in the 60s they had the bandwidth and tech to stream video????

there are a lot of unanswered issues with the whole thing, but admittedly I wasnt around at the time so who knows.
