Seriously, you're arguing now that the reason it couldn't have happened is we didn't have remote controlled Cameras?

Would not the Soviets have tracked each mission? Did they ever come out and say it didn't happen? I mean they were on the losing side of the space race.

They tracked each and every mission precisely with telescopes and directional radar and radio transmissions. They had no doubt it was real.

Actually - on 21st July 1969 - While Neil and Buzz were actually ON the Moon, the Russians put a probe (Luna 15) on the Moon.
OK, so it crashed (it was intended as a sample return) - but that's where the human element came into it's own.

It was only the 3 astronauts, right? No rocket scientists. No reconstructed apparatus. And what about the operations of firing a rocket WITH 3 MEN AND FUEL, CAMERA'S etc FROM THE MOON? How the hell could any scientist speculate that 3 astronauts would be able to take off by themseves? From point zero, the amount of fuel needed? What about the times; we needed to send disinfo to the Soviet Union... 1+1 = 2.

It was fake. Recondition your mind: Aint NO ONE been on the moon.
 Quoting: Anonymous Coward 6231580


it took the Saturn 5 rocket to escape Earth's gravity.

the Moon is 20% of Earth's gravity.

so, it would take 20% of a Saturn 5 to escape Moon's gravity!

yer right: it's all a FAKE!
 Quoting: Anonymous Coward 22633247


The moon does not have an atmosphere. Aerodynamic pressure and drag require a lot of fuel. Its not only gravity that has to be overcome.

The CPU's sent up with Curiosity are loosely the equivalent of stuff you were using in '96. In space, the latest and greatest isn't always the best suited for the job.

two great American technological fiascos:

1. the bozos that ground the mirror for the Hubble Space Telescope ground it to the wrong specs and didn't bother
to test it, and the mirror was no good when they launched it. (any highschool physics kid knows how to grind a telescope mirror)

2. the great "Patriot anti-missile defense system" that
we gave to Israel in 1990 couldn't shoot down any of
Sadam's Scud missiles because the bozos who made the
internal clock for the computer system screwed it up
and the clock was off by 1 microsecond (which was equivalent
to an 800 meter inaccuracy at target).

they went into lunar orbit to join up with the CSM
 Quoting: Anonymous Coward 22634579

Now, that's interesting.

Joining up with an orbiting body (what was orbiting velocity and trajectory?), with no navigational equipment worth mentioning? That's quite a feat on this side of possible, but deep within the zone of improbable.

Those "lunar modules" were, more or less, just sealed cans of packed human meat, far from interplanetary spaceships that people usually imagine them to be.

How about this conspiracy theory then? They did go to the Moon, but they never landed there. It was all a show for the Soviets.
