I am not even going to try and argue with you as I will probably have no luck and you will just doubt my sources. However, I did a little reading this morning that helped to confirm all my beliefs in the apollo 11 mission.
I urge you to read this article and please respond. http://www.msnbc.msn.com/id/31965108/ns/technology_and_science-space//
double post. sorry.
Just for the record i am not mad, just fighting the devils advocate. But it's a good read for any doubting people out there.
Was the moonwalk faked? No!
It would be these highly defined footprints that would set some armchair physicists crying the moonwalk was a fake. In the years to come there would be those who would claim Apollo astronauts never went to the moon. They said all of it was done on a movie set in an Arizona.
It occurred to me that if NASA had been so deviously smart to persuade 400,000 Apollo workers to lie, to persuade the Russians to lie, to persuade the people tracking the lunar flights with giant radio antennas around the world to lie ... well, if NASA got away with it once, would the agency be so stupid as to try to get away with this world-class hoax nine times?
The claim is too dumb not to be laughable. It is sad. We as a people would rather think the worst of ourselves than the best.
Nevertheless, scientific investigators investigated.
