CONFIRMATION OF LANDINGS BEGINS

June 18 2009: NASA has just launched two lunar spacecraft aboard an Atlas 5 rocket to study the lunar surface in greater detail than ever before in preparation for the next Moon landing missions.
One spacecraft will map the cratered surface from a perilously low 31-mile-high orbit while the other will blast out 350 tons of pulverized rock and soil for chemical analysis, digging a shallow 66-foot-wide crater in a kamikaze crash visible from Earth.
The $504 million Lunar Reconnaissance Orbiter, equipped with seven state-of-the-art cameras and other instruments, will look for suitable landing sites for future manned missions while creating the most detailed lunar atlas ever assembled. One year will be spent scouting future landing sites followed by three years of purely scientific observations.
While its cameras will not be able to detect the footprints of the 12 Apollo astronauts who once walked on the moon, they will be able to see the landing stages, rovers and other equipment that were left behind.

I realise that this will not of course convince the hoax believers, they will say it´s just more fake photographs. However, I am sure the more intellectual amongst us will be very interested to see new images of the landers on the lunar surface, 40 years after touchdown.

You're right. It won't convince the morons.

I'd like to see the new photos of the land rovers. Maybe in another 40 years we will have the technology to get a man to the moon again. Pretty amazing that they could get there in three days with the equivalent of a speak-and-spell equiped trailer clamped to a huge lawn mower engine.

I don't think the basic technology to get to the Moon has changed much over the years, it doesn't have to, all you need is a tube to live in and a thrust coming out of the end.
The main improvement of course will be in computers.
If today NASA wanted to send men to the Moon using the same equipment and methods as they did in 1969, I am sure they wouldn't be allowed to, it would considered too dangerous.
That's progress for you!

and obviously nothing exists to cure prejudice or a narrow mind.
"it's definetly easier to break an atome than a prejudice" as Einstein said.
