Russia didn't start attacking the U.S. with their video because they had no proof of any type that the video was a fake. They didn't know that there was no wind on the moon.
??? What the hell are you talking about? At the time of the manned missions, everybody knew the Moon had no atmosphere. No one needs to land anything for that, we can see that from Earth with telescopes very easily. The russians (along with everyone else) were already well aware that there was no wind on the Moon.
I have a feeling noone agreed because they are patriots.
I'm anything but a patriot. Besides, I'm not even american. I'm disagreeing with you because your argument just plain doesn't hold up.
It's common sense, if we are able to do it now, there has to be a start.
The Wright brothers were able to fly an airplane in 1903, so there had to be a start, someone had to do it before them. The americans built a nuclear bomb in 1945, so there had to be a start, someone had to do it before them. I made this post in 2007, so there had to be a start, someone had to do it before me.
Translation: W. T. F.
The idea is that the Wright Brothers were
the start for airplane flight, the americans were
the start for nuclear bombs, etc, and that these next Moon missions will be
the start for people landing on the Moon. The fact that we're planning to do it now does very little in itself to prove we did it or even could have done it 50 years ago. There is no mystical law stating that everything that has been done had to have been done 50 years before too.
