It still boggles my mind that we accomplished this in 1969!

Watching video of the landing still brings a tear of amazement to my eye.

It amazes me too. I wasn't around back then...makes me wonder why we haven't ventured "out there" as much as we could.

I have students who swear it was a hoax. Apparently there is a video that the science department is showing that "proves" it was a hoax.

WOW, I hope the hoax posts are just joking. Even if you are, thats still bad IMO.

You know, because NASA likes to have massive explosions that kill astronauts just to make going to space look like it is actually happening! Its why 3 astronauts were incenerated on the launch pad testing the Saturn rocket that was the first step towards going to the moon. Its why 3 astronauts were almost killed in space going to the moon and were very lucky to make it back. Anyone that takes these conspiracy theories or kook theories seriously is dishonoring the people that died and put their lives on the line so we could get there. I dont think its funny to even joke about. sorry

i think it is a hoax,

i had to write a long term paper on it once..and there were many reasons why they needed to do a big space acheivement since they were falling behind soviet's space program.
plus there are a lot of scientists journals that say it is impossible human to actually go on the moon for x reasons.

Sorry but that is a load of BS. There are probebly 10 x's more scientists journals that indicate it is possible and that we did it. Because you read it somewhere does not make it a fact. The fact is that if you were to present both sides of the story, with the factual data available, it is a landslide and/or mountain of evidence that we went with no hard evidence that we didnt. But go ahead and believe your kook conspiracy theories. Sorry, I just think its sad that some of these people with their outlandish theories have caused you to believe it was a hoax.

That's my sister's birthday. They walked on the moon that day. I'll never forget it (I was 5 at the time). She never let me forget it

I remember that day, too. I had my first date with my future husband on that day! We have been married this year for 35 years.
