My father helped train the astronauts on the Gemini and Apollo missions (even some of the earlier shuttle missions). He was there at mission control during the events. I know how much he worked and how to this day he is proud for being part of it. He has all his awards and mission badges on display all throughout his house.
He could (and still can) smell if something was fishy and knows it was legit.

Who in here thinks that we really DID NOT GO to the moon?
(other than Richard?)
Although I was short (a kid), I remember the moon landing like it happened yesterday. Parents woke my brother and I up early in the morning so we could watch it happen. We huddled in our living room, riveted to our black and white TV set.
And it happened.
Kinda sad how pessimistic many aspects of society have become in our day. It was forward thinking folk that got men to the moon.
Electricity makes refrigeration happen.
Refrigeration makes the HVAC psychrometric process happen.
HVAC pyschrometrics is what makes indoor human comfort happen...IF the ducts AND the building envelope cooperate.
A building is NOT beautiful unless it is also comfortable.
I was 21 when it took place and I don't believe they went to the moon. I think the took a left when they should have taken a right and actually landed on Alderan. Where do you think the idea for JetSkis came from...an earthling? Get real.
No reserve. No retreat. No regrets.
For those who have fought for it, freedom has a sweetness the protected will never know.
What differance does it make? We went or not. Let's just say it was a hoax, so what does that get you now. Big deal Mr. Conspiracy theorist shut you pie hole and get back to being joe citizen, pay your taxes, support your country,pet the dog, bang the wife and love the kids. Wha wha my gov lied to me wha wha, get over it. This is the greatest country in the world, learn that and live it, you big baby.
