well if they really went thats mind blowing i can get lost in walmart im not even joking
Really, the only major advancement since then has been in computing power. Now we can monitor more things on a spacecraft, and replace a lot of the clutter with touch screens. Propulsion technology hasn't fundamentally changed. Today's rocket engines are marginally more efficient and somewhat more reliable, but in general you don't get much more specific impulse from any given type of fuel. Now we're focused on reusability to lower the cost of sending stuff into space. The lunar missions back then were kind of a one-off show mostly to one-up the USSR, not a path to eventually commercializing space. Cost was no object.ill admit not 100 percent sure we went to the moon! it just seems impossible to me that in 1960s we would have that kind of tech and faking it would scare the ussr
This, by itself, of course, is not in any way any kind of proof that man walked on the moon. It does prove, however, that other non-manned trips by other countries resulted in deposited reflectors on the moon's surface.
