It's not necessary to walk on the moon to project American dominance any longer, but I feel that the fact we literally cannot do so now has garnered that achievement a high-water mark in American/Western society.

I don't want to harp on this too much but in an era when electric calculators were out of reach to the common office worker, we walked on the moon.

Now you've got a smart phone and we couldn't get to the moon if we wanted to.

This proves nothing other than that someone wrote some words on a wikipedia page. Have i ever tasted touched or smelt the moon? No. Have you? Doubtful. But oh yeah were supposed to believe that this white thing in the sky is really a big ball of space rock and that spacemen just walk around on it.

It doesn't matter what i say to this really because you'll show me some wikipedia page or something again where a science man has written a bunch of words and ill just have to accept it as blind faith. Truthfully? I don't know I've not seen any real proof either way and it doesn't really affect my life what shape it is.

Also, for the depressed people here, we could easily get back to the Moon if we wanted to. But.... Republicans. So we can't.

But that's a political reason, not a technological one. Also, besides "science", what is there for a man to accomplish on the Moon? I can't think of much that's practical
