    Just wondering. Does anyone think the landing was real or not. The technology they used was less than an iphone 5. How is that possible? Their equipment moonwalkers and all looked like they were wrapped in aluminum foil and created in an arts and crafts project. If it really occured then it is mighty impressive.
    If they did it back in 69 using practically an iphone 5, why cant they do it today? Isnt technology much more advanced?
    Is it odd that humanity left a footprint on the otherwise untouched and pure moon?

    They can do it today… just costs a lot of money and more resources would need to be funneled into the mission.

    A relative of mine worked for NASA… after exploring this conspiracy theory of it never happened with him… I felt confident that the moon landing was real.

    Conspiracy theories have a way to convince you otherwise…you can decide or deny whatever you wish.

    It actually costs more to fake than to accomplish for real.

    Of course it was real. Just because we have more advanced technology today, doesn’t mean they had no technology then.
    They haven’t been again because there is no need to.

    The moon landing was a battle of the Cold War and even the Soviets admitted the moon landing was real and they had lost that battle

    litvishechossid,

    Real.

    The technology they used was less than an iphone 5. How is that possible?

    Apples and oranges. Your iPhone5 can’t drive you to the store, but the automobile, which has been around in some form since 1886, can.

    Their equipment moonwalkers and all looked like they were wrapped in aluminum foil and created in an arts and crafts project. If it really occured then it is mighty impressive.

    None of the equipment looked like that to me. Have you seen any of it in person, e.g., at the Kennedy Space Center in FL, or the Air and Space Museums in DC? Keep in mind that whatever the astronauts took to the moon had to be launched up there from Earth. They couldn’t bring the kitchen sink with them! There had to be a balance between the safety threshold and the weight threshold. So aesthetics took a backseat to functionality. Maybe some day in the future humans will be able to wield sleek, powerful looking spacecraft.

    If they did it back in 69 using practically an iphone 5, why cant they do it today? Isnt technology much more advanced?

    Computing technology is certainly orders of magnitude more advanced, but other technologies such as rockets, spacecraft, etc. are not much more advanced. The Apollo Program was extremely rushed, and there was a gigantic budget, so a lot of waste was tolerated. Huge Saturn V rockets launched 3-part spacecraft, only 1 part of which returned to Earth and was not reused.

    The Space Shuttle program was an attempt to bring down the costs of space travel yet still transport heavy items to orbit via reusable vehicles, but it was still extremely expensive. The fuel tanks couldn’t be reused (they burned up on re-entry), the solid fuel booster rockets had to be found in the ocean and repaired/refurbished, and the shuttles themselves required extensive maintenance and took large amounts of time to become spaceworthy again after a mission. The high costs of the shuttle program probably hampered other things NASA could have been doing. And NASA’s budget is a fraction of what it was during the space race with the USSR.

    Is it odd that humanity left a footprint on the otherwise untouched and pure moon?

    It’s amazing!

    What does the iPhone have to do with space travel? Were they missing Uber?
