As someone already said, watching Nei Armstrong walk on the moon. I was 9
Still say it was all staged in a studio.
I've heard that before. The older I get the more apt I am to say, Perhaps!?

Anyway to fund the program and justify the cost. Think about what Space X has done in a few years that NASA has never accomplished. Milk the taxpayer, fund a program.

False flags and hoaxes abound. It’s water way under the bridge. The money from the tax payers would have come regardless based upon the tax rate they were obligated to pay. That the govt wastes money on boondoggles is without question. Somethings I just don’t waste my mental energy on anymore. The Good Lord will provide all the answers I need when I get Home. Either that, and more likely, it won’t even matter then.

Cutting off parking meter heads with a big pipe cutter with friends for gas and beer money. The next spring they welded a bead up and down both sides of the metal post and they are still there to this day. Is there a statute of limitation for this??? Yes we were really dumb.

Keep in mind that getting things into low earth orbit (LEO is not Law Enforcement Officer at NASA...) is a whole lot cheaper and easier than going to the moon or Mars.

And what they did with the available computing power at their disposal in 1969 remains a feat of human engineering. People like to compare the LEM's computing power the original PC in 1982 but the IPhone 10 has more computing power than ALL of NASA in 1969.

Maybe my parents planned me, but you need to check with them.
