Other than the following 5 landings and the aborted Apollo 13 mission you mean?ivandaman wrote:The Moon landing: Did some brief research. Some "experts" claim that the journey is simply impossible to happen because of multiple challenges that the science simply had no answer to. And probably still does not.
Personally I'm kind of perplexed why after we (supposedly) landed on the moon 50 freaking years ago, we never attempted another voyage? Doesn't make much sense does it??
Actually some suggest that the abundance of the extremely rare and valuable elemental isotope ³He (helium-3) on the moon would make a permanent mining operation there extremely profitable towards the advancement of nuclear fusion technology.Dante wrote:We're not establishing moon bases, because frankly there is little need to. Congress isn't going to fund missions to the moon for the sole reason of just walking around on there. Really, the only reason to go back to the Moon is as a test run for a manned Mars mission.
Whether or not one believes one can truly 'fornicate' an entirely barren celestial body such as the Earth's moon, of course, depends on one's personal sentiments towards that kind of thing.Matt wrote:So we're fornicate this planet and want the fornicate with its satellite as well?
Well if man had never been to the moon, don't you reckon the Russians would think to mention that when discussing plans for potential ³He moon mines being constructed at some point in not-so-distant future?RedSte wrote:wasnt this originally about "did man go to the moon or not" , rather than some science lesson?
So to paraphrase: Did man land on the moon? �
Well, Isotope so �:)
