Why everything is so tightly coupled with BTCitcoin??
The usefulness of these coins is mostly limited to buying bitcoin, that is why there value follows bitcoin.



No, it's because Bitcoin has the largest trading volume, thereby, the biggest liquidity. It has in fact became the de facto standard currency of the crypto world. In the same way, US dollars is the standard in spite of the US Government printing more of it.

If the US economy and USD goes down, all of the countries that rely on their economy and fiat will go down too. Same with BTC and crypto.

Perhaps it is better that we forget about it. What a phenomenal waste of money, time and talent. NASA would have been better off, and gathered much more useful science by sending umpteen unmanned missions instead.  I feel the exact same way about NASA's current project on sending a manned mission to Mars.

it was mainly political IIRC. we needed to show russia up. they had the 1st satellite, and 1st person to orbit the earth.

a manned moon landing was the next step. couldnt let russia beat us there too; they would then be the most advanced "space faring" nation. no way would the USA come in second on that, our national pride was at stake.

and the advances from the space program have many benefits. one being that for long term human survival as a species. we need to get off this rock before we destroy it.

the sooner colonies are on mars/wherever, the better the chance for human survival. earth is getting to be  shithole. we need "boots on the ground" at some point and automated probes are just the 1st step towards that.

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.

And of course, Hairy is full of shit as usual.

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 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.

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.
