There is a strong correlation between conspiracy theorists and low cognitive capability.  Make of that what you will.

I like the famous anecdote about the US's phenomenal talent of wasting money. NASA engineers spent millions of dollar trying to develop a pen that could write in space, or so the story goes. Meanwhile, the soviets used pencils.

pencil shavings floating around were perceived to be a problem as they could get into delicate electronic packages. hence, pens.

at least there was some reasoning involved. whether it was valid? who knows. NASA (back then) was all about safety, anything that might cause equipment failure was minimized.

use ten pencils per flight so they don't have to be sharpened? that still saves millions of dollars.

valid to a point, but pencil points dont last long (we use em in medical a lot and we always need to sharpen them, one page of writing and its more or less useless) and if you break the tip, what then. send up 100s?

but i do see your point. not sure if theres more to it than i know.

No no. Conspiracies are not true or false. They exist or they don't exist.

Conspiracy theories can be true or false.

Quoted from above article:

"Both U.S. astronauts and Soviet cosmonauts initially used pencils on space flights, but those writing instruments were not ideal: pencil tips can flake and break off, and having such objects floating around space capsules in near-zero gravity posed a potential harm to astronauts and equipment. (As well, after the fatal Apollo 1 fire in 1967, NASA was anxious to avoid having astronauts carry flammable objects such as pencils onboard with them.)

When the solution of providing astronauts with a ballpoint pen that would work under weightless conditions and extreme temperatures came about, though, it wasn’t because NASA had thrown hundreds of thousands of dollars (inflated to $12 billion in the latest iterations of this tale) in research and development money at the problem. The “space pen” that has since become famous through its use by astronauts was developed independently by Paul C. Fisher of the Fisher Pen Co., who spent his own money on the project and, once he perfected his AG-7 “Anti-Gravity” Space Pen, offered it to NASA. After that agency tested and approved the pen’s suitability for use in space flights, they purchased a number of the instruments from Fisher for a modest price [$2.95 each]."

I don't see what is controversial about my statement... which part of my statement is controversial? 

my doubting of the moon landing or my confidence that the earth is not flat?

doubting the moon landing...seriously, that shit is cray

i find it hard to believe people that are otherwise reasonably intelligent can still believe that moon landings were faked.

mental block?  lack of knowledge the technical aspects? brain washing? wishful thinking? whatever it is.. well enjoy your beliefs.




It's funny, they're skeptical about landings, but not launches. Smiley Launches are the hardest, most expensive part, not landings.

there's little to no gravity, plus you only have to put a few tons down versus lifting several thousand of high explosive but let's not get too technical.

Both countries experimented with robot landings quite enough, even had robotic sample rerurn missions.

We launch all the time with no problem these days, If all that stuff that came after the launches is so easy, why do we never just throw in the 10% more effort on any one of the modern launches and go back some time? I'm not arguing the moon landing was a hoax here. Just pointing out the obvious followup question to what you said.

90% or more of launches these days are for ruthlessly commercial reasons.

and the next people to make the effort will be doing it for ascendant prestige which means china, not the tired old west. it might even be a private operation.

and that whole era was a freaky anomaly. there's no appetite to push the limits any more. these days it takes airliners longer to fly many places than it did back then. the world's fastest plane designs like the sr-71 and x-15 are over 60 years old now.

Yesterday I saw a flag pole wrapped in lagging to make it "safer" its the state of the world. Health and safety going mad.

It didn't even sound that bad typed, so look!



Its just so sad, those poor scouts might get hurt. Shit when I was back in the day we all had knives and axes and made fires.

I'm at the Isle of Man TT. Here they wrap the poles in padding to protect them from the riders, not vice versa.

Lol, NASA themselves have said the 'lost' the technology to go back, go figure. Any mobile phone has more computing power than available in the 60. Go ahaid and transmit data over that distance and tell me how much power it takes. Go ahaid and to some research of how much a radio station users, and the reach is?
