OK, let's discuss this. The closest, supposedly reachable, celestial body which could yield mountains of information about outer space and NASA picks up, packs up, and decides to head to Mars instead. Really? Seems to me, corporately thinking of course, that the most cost effective study would be right here on our "reachable" moon. Huge craters that would yield many objects to study. These objects could then be continuously returned to earth for hands on physical analysis. Yet, where are all of these yields? Well, NASA prefers distant study and video....much more beneficial.

Why do you continue with a red herring. There is absolutlely nothing that can be seen from the Moon that can be seen from Earth orbit. Apollo was not about astronomy. It was a cold war demonstration of power with the secondary goal of studying the Moon's GEOLOGY. Can you look up the word GEOLOGY and figure out what that means? It isn't astronomy.
 Quoting: Anonymous Coward 2658310


Are you retarded or something. Taking objects from craters on the moon and returning them for study is an act consistent with Geology numb skull. But, to understate the astrological possibilities from the moon mission is asinine. Both would be valuable studies on a true moon mission.

Ok. Do you see those huge craters on the moon? Those lead most to believe that objects from "outer space" impacted the moon at some point. Fragments from those objects were most likely left behind during such times of impact. Those fragments would still be valuable to study if we were utilizing our resources wisely. Hence..."mountains of information about outer space."

 Quoting: Halcyon Dayz, FCD

Unlike most, I don't believe everything returned from a Google search. I know you'd like that, cause than I'd believe we landed a friggin man on the moon now wouldn't I. I went to NASA.gov and scrubbed through that site for any bit of information that was more than superficial in nature regarding the LM. Instead I found a maze of disorganized information. If I came here posting facts from an invalid source, you'd be all over that like white on rice. I politely asked for pointers to resources of the LM. Capable payloads, dimensions for cargo, yet, true to form, the NASA site is a maze of everything but things like this.
 Quoting: SC22 28817449


This excuses you from being able to use search tools?

First you say you don't trust information which is too easily available. Then you moan that the information you wanted wasn't easily available.

It is out there. It just takes work to put it all together.


You couldn't.
You haven't managed to find a single fact so far.
I doubt you could find your behind without directions.
 Quoting: Halcyon Dayz, FCD

Are you suggesting that the LM designs were substituted for toilet paper at the NASA headquarters? Wouldn't surprise me with all of the original moon footage that was lost and subsequently taped over. That's analogous to Thomas Jefferson accidentally writing over the Constitution. NASA can put a man on the moon, but can't safeguard the original footage of it.
 Quoting: SC22 28817449


And after your cursory search, you decided it was all destroyed?

But there is a deeper problem here.

NASA didn't design the LM!

NASA designed the MISSION. GRUMMAN designed the LM. NASA never owned the construction blueprints, and those were retained by the contractor.

So not only are they not just waiting for a two-minute look-see, they also aren't all neatly stacked under the one acronym everyone seems to remember.



You've never heard of Tom Kelly?
 Quoting: Halcyon Dayz, FCD

OK. Thanks. Appreciate the sliver of information in your adhom sandwich. Perhaps, if you're so kind, you could point me towards a resource that has information about him prior the year 2000? Call me sceptical, but I find it suspicious that this guy appears in zero newspaper articles during that period of time when we defied a 0.0017 chance of landing a man on the moon in a lander he supposedly designed.


Call me skeptical that you can source that figure.

Oh, and how firm are you on "prior to 2000?" I can beat that by two years just by turning my head towards the DVD rack I have on the wall.

Understanding the geology of the Moon can be done in a number of ways. At the moment we are looking at the whole Moon, with ever more sophisticated remote sensing. For instance, more detailed gravity maps. I don't care how many astronauts or rovers you send there, you aren't going to be able to generate an accurate and detailed map of the Moon's gravity!

Understanding the astrology of the Moon, on the other hand, requires nothing but a protractor, some colored pens, and the ability to make up portentous-sounding bullshit.

Read my post again. It wasn't very organized -- got a head cold and not enough coffee. But I think it is clear the decision-making process under discussion is that of the individual engineer, not that of his employers.

Whether NASA is idiotic enough to attempt to compartmentalize without telling anyone they are being compartmentalized (good luck with that!), they are still dealing with individual workers who know more about their specialties then "NASA" does (or why else would they be hired?) and who are enthusiastic and curious and interested in the challenge.

The kind of person you ask to design a lightweight rover is NOT the kind of person you say to, "You don't need to know the load-carrying capacity of the LM, or the planned duration of the EVA your rover will be used on."

Referring back to Hal's post, these are people who aren't making a widget that they don't understand, these are people who are making a part that can work in space. That fulfills not just some checklist made by NASA, but physics.

Re: They faked it ! The Moon Landing !!

Are you retarded or something. Taking objects from craters on the moon and returning them for study is an act consistent with Geology numb skull. But, to understate the astrological possibilities from the moon mission is asinine. Both would be valuable studies on a true moon mission.

AGAIN I challenge you to provide data on how equipment which could have been hauled to the moon on Apollo would have provided superior images to those from existing high-elevation Earth scopes.
 Quoting: Menow 36389814

High elevation= still in the atmosphere of earth. Do you believe the atmosphere has no effect on sky viewing?

 Quoting: Menow 12288415


Large ground based telescopes with adaptive optics provide almost as good as Hubble at much less the cost. It has been proven that orbiting telescopes work. The cost of putting a telescope on the Moon would far exceed the cost of building another Hubble and placing it into Earth orbit.
There is no scientific gain of a telescope on the Moon over one in Earth orbit. Logistically, it would be far harder from the Moon.

If it wasn't for this sympathetic full blown Nazi - SS officer, we wouldn't have discussed the Moon hoax on GLP.

The NASA Nazis
Operation Paperclip was the Office of Strategic Services (OSS) program used to recruit the scientists of Nazi Germany for employment by the United States in the aftermath of World War II (1939/45).

The True History and Purpose of NASA
Now, you and I know that those nazi scientists who stood at the cradle of the 'giant step for mankind', knew nothing about the tens of thousands slave laborers who were working at Peenemunde - they were just jolly, peace loving nerds with an interest in rocket science...

Re: They faked it ! The Moon Landing !!
Your sense of the sense people have of history is suspect.

None of that is news. Not then, not now. Nor is it whitewashed.

I mean, hell! You can't study anything about the early history of rocketry without learning about the V2. Terror weapon, used indiscriminately on the civilian population of London, built by slave labor.

Next you will be telling us that innocent people died during the Korean War.

 Quoting: RoXY


Reductio ad Hitlerum, also argumentum ad Hitlerum, is a term coined by conservative philosopher Leo Strauss in 1951. According to Strauss, the Reductio ad Hitlerum is an informal fallacy that consists of trying to refute an opponent's view by comparing it to a view that would be held by Adolf Hitler or the Nazi Party.

According to Strauss, Reductio ad Hitlerum is a form of ad hominem or ad misericordiam, a fallacy of irrelevance, in which a conclusion is suggested based solely on something's or someone's origin rather than its current meaning. The suggested rationale is one of guilt by association. Its name is a variation on the term reductio ad absurdum.

Reductio ad Hitlerum is sometimes called playing the Nazi card, According to its critics and proponents, it is a tactic often used to derail arguments, because such comparisons tend to distract and anger the opponent.

In short, you lose.

Well according to you Mr. Dayz, all I need is a keyboard equipped with the letters "g", "o", "l", and "e". You insinuated that the Internet had all the answers.

I did what now?
It should be able to provide you a clue on where to find stuff.

I swear, hoaxies must have some sort of filter that only allows them to find hoax-monger sites.

The very first mission. The Eagle has landed. One small step for man, one giant radio wave leap past the speed of light!

Back to the top of your script again already?

You weren't able to proof this silly ASSertion the first time you made it.
In fact, you havent been able to proof anything you claimed.
Doesn't that get frustrating?
Doesn't it tell you you should have done your research, and plenty of it, BEFORE spouting your slanderous claims?

Love Tom Lehrer.

So, are YOU going to explain why Nazis can't build rocketships?
Because the notion that the laws of physics change depending on ones political ideology is rather bewildering.

How is this not a Godwin?
