So my blog today doesn’t have any flying cows, but actually this does come pretty close. I realize I’m going to take a lot of flak for this but that’s fine, I can’t wait to hear what you all have to say. Okay, here goes. I DON’T BELIEVE MAN HAS EVER GONE TO THE MOON!
This week the moon landings were in question again as more photographs showed variations in the flag positions. Once again NASA had to scramble for an answer. To me this is all a bunch of baloney. I don’t believe that we were ever in green cheese country. Other non believers spout conspiracy theories, the USA’s need to win the space race, for me it’s all about mechanics.
In 1980 a space shuttle landed on a runway on its return from space. It was the first time that a US space vehicle had landed on solid ground, ever. Before that all missions ended by the space capsule (Not much more than a souped up soup can) parachuting into the ocean. It was dangerous, primitive, not very convenient, but it was the best they could come up with.
So how do you expect me to believe that eleven years before our magical landing on a runway we somehow landed on the moon? In 1969 it supposively happened. We’ve all seen the videos. Golfing on the moon, jumping around in low gravity, even a dune buggy. Phooey!
To believe that, you’d have to believe that the astronauts were able to orbit the moon, detach from their rocket, land in a virtually unknown environment, do their experiments and have their fun, then be able to fly back to earth. And once they got home they had to parachute into the ocean cause they still hadn’t figured out a better way to land here…
That would be like me saying I’ve never been to city of Toronto before. But I’ve decided to drive there even though the brakes aren’t working in my car. Still, I’m going to make it there, see all the sights without any problems, then crash into my house when I get back home cause I can’t stop. Sound crazy? No crazier than landing on the moon in 1969.
There’s always been one other thing that bothers me. During the space race in the 1950’s and 60’s, the USA was always second. Russia beat them at everything. First sattelite, first man in orbit, the list goes on. Then all of a sudden the USA makes it to the moon first and Russia doesn’t go at all? Wonder why? Probably because IT WASN’T POSSIBLE! There you have it, that’s what I think. Let me know how you feel about it.
