If another 50 years passes without man stepping on the moon then
will the Apollo deniers look so silly?

What is an 'Apollo denier...?

Might you mean one of those 'interesting types' that suggest the moon landing were a 'con'....?

If going to the Moon to collect Lunar sand was the actual reason.... then sorry but I think you American's must be very stupid!

You did not have to spent $$$$$$$$$ Billions and Billions to go out there  and bring back DUST  from the Lunar landscape.

There was much cheaper option.........costing only few hundred $$$$$$$$$$$$.

You could charter a Jumbo jet and sent all your astronauts here to London, as we speak almost the same language and help the road cleaning services by collecting all the dust from our Roads on the capital!

I am sure the mayor of London would have been delighted to compensate your country if you had done a good job !

NASA has a currently has a program to land a man on Mars. As Trump said a few months ago, going to the moon again is part of the mars program. We already have spacecraft that left our solar system.

Poor Wiz,

Yet ANOTHER subject he hasn't a scoobie do about

1/ The Race to the moon was one between two divergent (politically) super-powers .. it cost both, dearly ..  If you looks at the costs from a  purely economic perspective... YUP ..daft ..


2/ There was somewhat more to the programme than collecting dust ...

Wiz, It is refreshing to see your sense of humour return. We need more levity around here. Makes the moderators smile and the rest of us chuckle.

I have plenty sense of humor, but I made my position clear.
I do not tolerate lies and personal attacks. it's that simple.

If anybody thinks and accuses me of lying then I expect him to provide factual evidence and not only throwing accusations.  In the last episode with Moby, I posted my evidence and proved his lies.........but the owner decided that I was trolling, removed my post but allowed him to continue with his dishonest replies.

Under these circumstances how we can have any normal conversation or civilised debates?

Don't worry and nobody can change my sense of humour!
