Listen to me carefully: Bush has said Americans will go again to the moon in ten or fifteen years.

But it would be enough to dust that old crock of Lunar Module if you want to go again to the moon.

THEN THAT DEMONSTRATES THAT YOU NEVER WENT TO THE MOON AND ALSO TODAY YOU HAVE NOT TECHNOLOGY TO LAND ON THE MOON.

IT'S ABSOLUTELY IMPOSSIBLE THAT ANYONE IN 1969 WOULD HAVE BEEN ABLE TO LAND ON THE MOON WITH THIS OLD CROCK GOING BACKWARDS USING ROCKET ENGINE AS A BREAK



REASON, CRIPES, REASON, DON'T LET SOME BUFFOONS CAN SWINDLE YOU, CRIPES.

THAT OLD CROCK, COME CLOSE TO THE GROUND, WOULD HAVE FALLEN OFF IN ALL DIRECTIONS, ON THE RIGHT, LEFT, BEHIND, FORWARD, AND IT WOULD HAVE CRASHED INEXORABLY.

NOT EVEN TODAY NASA'S BUFFOONS HAVE INVENTED AN AIRCRAFT ABLE TO LAND IN HOVERING IN A PLACE WITHOUT ATMOSPHERE.

REASON, CRIPES, REASON, FOR THIS REASON BUSH HAS SAID YOU'LL GO TO THE MOON IN TEN OR FIFTEEN YEARS, BECAUSE TODAY YOU HAVEN'T TECHNOLOGY TO LAND ON THE MOON AND TO COME BACK.

Well, bigbrain, I've got to admire you're tenacity, if not your intellect.

You are availing yourself of satellite technology right now. Your neurons misfire somewhere in Italy, and in seconds your stupidity is available to me in the middle of the US of A. This is possible due to satellites. You know each satellite is placed at an altitude where the forces are balanced just right so that it maintains its orbit. Give it just a little push one way and its off into deep space, a nudge the other way and its doomed to burn up on attempted re-entry. And man has been putting satellites up for 40+ years. Its a pretty mature technology. Assuming you believe that satellites exist (and if you don't then we're just imagining this whole thing, or there's a secret network of underground and undersea cables carrying all this communications traffic hidden from us by someone who wants to fool us into thinking there are such things as satellites), then why is it so difficult to believe that we can send an unmanned vehicle to elsewhere in the solar system? Most of the effort is to get the damn thing up to that altitude where the forces are just balanced. After that, it doesn't take much to make it head somewhere else. Please explain how we can put hundreds of satellites in orbit, but we can not figure out how to get one unmanned probe to Mars.

The foundation of morality is to . . . give up pretending to believe that for which there is no evidence, and repeating unintelligible propositions about things beyond the possibliities of knowledge.

Without the famous tiles of Space Shuttle, how could it not burn on re-entry

Or it could just be that there aren't any left and it be far to dangerous to use a forty year old spacecraft.

Simple not all spacecraft have tile's for reentry, I suggest you do a bit of reading here, http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Heat_shield

Satellites are not generally designed for re-entry.

Now stop avoiding the question:

Naaa. I'm sorry, but you are just full of crap. Argue all you want to about this, you will still be full of crap. If this sort of thing gets you off, knock yourself out...

Uncertainty may make you uncomfortable. Certainty makes you ridiculous.

Why not question something for a change?

I really must ask: why exactly is anyone still engaging in this excersize in futility? bigbrain is having a ball with this nonsense and we are going for it like rednecks after hog meat.

Good joke, bb! Wish I'da thought of it.....

I want to be a NASA babboon, too:

Oh, by the by, has anyone noticed bigpain has changed the topic subject?

He is no longer insisting we didn't go to the moon only. Now Titan has been added also.

"Sirens of Titan" by Kurt Vonnegut Jr. is one of my all time top reads.

Well, reading the thread isn't the problem. It's the replies which feed bigbrain's delusions which are the problem.
