Yeah, we did. We even left a bunch of poo poo behind as proof. I understand that it might be hard to believe that America was ever capable of doing anything that doesn't involve eating bad food or murdering people, but we loving did that poo poo. We did that poo poo 6 times.

tbh the moon landing at this point was basically us going to a dumb rock and realizing everything on it was stupid as hell and the only people interested in it at this point are the chinese but their made in china robot broke (shocker)

New moon theroy is in, is wasn't earth ejecta that caused it, it was earth saying, hey rock comere and a bucnha asteriods hit it, causing the mass of jupiter to swell 12X its mass.

Didn't they recently do a study & decide that the radiation levels in deep space are so hosed up that sending humans to Mars was going to end up being sending corpses to Mars?

there's all kinds of other problems to worry about. bone atrophy is the obvious one, but now people are starting to realize that people on the ISS go farsighted in space since the low/zero gravity fucks with the shape of your eyes. it'll be interesting to see what problems crop up when people are stuck on a shuttle for ~2 years round trip along with whatever time they spend on Mars, which has something near 40% of Earth's gravity

basically humans and all life on Earth except for water bears, which are immortal, is designed for earth's exact pressure and earth's exact amount of gravity and earth's exact heat. things start messing up when suddenly the gravity is gone for very long periods of time

If we actually landed on the moon then Bart Sibrel wouldn't have called Neil Armstrong a liar and got punched in the face.

But he did, so obviously we didn't land on the moon.

You can create artificial gravity fairly easy by causing the spacecraft to spin, but I'm guessing they aren't going to send a craft there that does that.

Instead of spinning the ship, which would cost a lot in R&D, and then for the parts, and the quality control, could we just spin the person?

No that would be acceleration, but you could build the ship so the decks are parallel to thrust and just accelerate at 9/ms until you're half way there and then flip around and decelerate at 9/ms when you get there. How fast you have to spin depends on the radius of the ship, so you would have to make it fairly large if you didn't want to throw up a lot. But if the ship was 500 meters wide it would have make one revolution every 44 seconds to simulate gravity. Which seems kind of fast to me, but I'm not a rocket scientist.

Centripetal acceleration is (v^2)/r or omega*r^2. So it depends on how wide the spacecraft is.

the smaller the craft, the faster it has to spin. the math is pretty simple, v^2/r =9.8 (earth's gravity) and find your required angular velocity with a = v/r then just plug in. At with a 100 meter craft shaped like a cylinder you'd need to spin at 31 m/s consistently through the craft which means you're doing roughly 3 rpm. the trick in the near future will probably be to do something like simulate 60% of Earth's gravity, not as demanding and you don't suffer like you're in 0g the entire time. probably not going to have lumpy ships though, simulating gravity requires having most of your mass in the center or else things get wobbly.
