Has anyone checked out the bluray discs When We Left Earth and For All Mankind. Watch em on a 100" screen and you'll know we went there.

Having said that I don't think we'll ever make it to other planets (seriously!) because of the distances involved and most importantly Radiation... Unless we could genetically engineer and adapt the Human body... Nah I'm getting carried away now...

Saw it with billions of others live on a tiny black and white portable. Having lived through those times and met folks that worked on Apollo...you better believe we were there...repeatedly. I recently got good and mad and replied to one of those jackass moon hoax videos. The response was something to the effect, "I don't care about the evidence...". For those of us who lived in the time of the Apollo missions, it was never a question of whether or not we were actually there...we watched it live and eventually in color.

Tim Smith, absolutely agree, I watched them all too as a young boy with my family from 1969 to 1972.

About once a week a laser is shot up at the moon to hit the different reflectors set up by the astronauts in the Apollo missions. They are constantly measuring the moon's position that way and have data going back to the original landings.

BTW- it is getting further away (by inches)

As a result of this movement, eventually, and we're talking a looooooong time from now, there won't be total eclipses as we currently know them; there will be a 'ring around the moon' effect as the moon doesn't quite obscure the sun.
