Haha. The Apollo 10 guy, Cernan, said that there was concern at NASA that they might try to land on the moon. They were the guys who did the full dress rehearsal of the entire mission and launched the lander, but then brought it back up. Cernan claimed that the mission planners intentionally didn't put enough fuel on the lander to land it.

They also said the material on the lunar lander was so thin that if you dropped a screwdriver in it (on earth), it would poke a hole in the floor.

NASA's Don Pettit says we can't go back to the moon. NASA also says they destroyed all the technology they developed from those manned moon landings, even Bill Nye confirmed this. I love that GOLD foil they wrapped around the feet of the landing supports.

Fascinating, from a socialogical perspective. A youtube going 'toe-to-toe' with an MIT titan over fundamental laws of physics.



If you understand the dispute, it is fascinating to watch the entire back and forth. Some of it is semantic, but it's still important because it is dealing with fundamental things that are either true or not, . . . or whether we fully understand them or not. It goes to an anomaly that requires a great deal of rigor to fully comprehend and communicate, and both sides are well represented.

This is new avenue for 'peer review' interesting in that aspect alone.

One of the astronauts on board said that he was in the seat waiting to take off, and the seats were arranged so that he was looking up toward the sky. He said there were a couple of seagulls flying overhead, and he always wondered what happened to them. Ah. It's Apollo 8. Lovell, Borman, and Anders. I think that's a really underrated mission, because they were the first guys to go around the moon.
What's the name of it? (if you don't mind me asking)
