very true , why compare it with event of half century ago(if they did land at all).

Chinese appro ...

The Chinese are not making comparisons here; neither are the Russians (it's all congrats from Russia SZ-1 to present); or the "Europeans (EADS's even proposing a partnership with CNSA this area). Unlike the "psychologically-stricken psyches" of the Americans; and stranger still "pride strucked" world of manojgeans; the former roster are only interested in the scientific sides of things and not the political or hurt nationalistic pride variables which drives their ill fated state of mentalities.

Putin's a killer. This was the claim made by Fox News journalist; Bill O'Reilly during his recent interview with Donald Trump. Trump's reply came in the form of a simple question. What, you think our country's so innocent?

.... Are you aware of Moore's law?
Computers double in speed every 1.5 years.
30 years ago would not be 1/20th.
It'd be about 1/2000th.

Well, I guess I will be adding to all the posts that have hijacked this thread away from congratulating the Chinese on their space accomplishments.

Regardless, anyone who would like to read about hard evidence that the moon landings were not faked can do a little research on the Lunar Laser Ranging Experiment.

In 1969 the Apollo 11 astronauts placed laser reflectors on the surface of the moon as an aid to measuring the distance between the moon and the earth.  These devices have been used by multiple research institutions around the world and even by amateur astonomers.  

The evidence is there for anyone who wants to find it.  The reflectors are viewable from Earth.

Cheers

I'm not even going that high. The CPUs used in spacecraft are generally 1980s level tech.
At least in US and European space based systems.

Re: anyone who would like to read about hard evidence that the moon landings were not faked can do a little research on the Lunar Laser Ranging Experiment.

let's just put it this way: until the conspiracy theory got a foothold of pbs and "do the assange act on it" to the greater public; until we started asking ourselves the critical questions: was it technically possible given the crude almost infant stages of space technology mankind had just embarked on at the time; was possible economically given the vietnam war which likely was robbing the u.s. treasury of the needed necessary costs for other programs; was it possible given the cold war mentality the americans was engaged in with the u.s.s.r. which likely is already costing the americans an arm and a leg budget wise???

while we should not rule out the texas holden type risk factor that the americans might have taken, and regardless if we are the pros or the cons of that theory, shouldn't we, as creatures of exceptional imagination and high intelligence put our logic's to work and at lease, yes at the very least, question the legitimacy's of that theory?
