Why NASA hasn’t gone back to the Moon

  • NASA has big plans to return to the Moon by 2024, and it’s banking on the historic Space Launch System (SLS) to get them there. But after years of delays and cost overruns, skeptics are questioning whether SLS should remain the biggest priority for NASA. As the 50th anniversary of the Moon landing approaches, we take a look at what the future of solar system exploration might bring.
    Correction: An earlier version of this video showed an incorrect SLS configuration at 00:32, and an older rocket model at 2:16. The video has been updated to correct those inaccuracies.

      Why NASA hasn’t gone back to the Moon -- because they never went in the first place.

    OK so why have we not gone back yet? Because the other that were already on the Moon told us not to comeback until were all one people that means humans instead of Americans, Russians, Chinese. You get the idea. They do not want us out there until we a united plaint and past all this warring we do among ourselves. Sound familiar? One world government.. Is that a good thing or a bad thing? It might be the one thing that keeps us from destroying ourselves. But it could also be what enslaves us all at the same time.

    Why do stars twinkle? Communication. You man, as a race, a species, have to get to know each other, before you can understand a little more about the existence you were born to. Not so intelligent, or civilized, not to get along, but hey, let others do it on your behalf. Not get along that is, while you go live your everyday lives, and make a living for those who think they have a right. 86 your public servants(political leaders). They are ruining much, on your behalf.

    Read Gene Krantz book, "Failure is not an option". When they let Apollo die, the best of NASA died too. A Monkey can wear a spacesuit and sit in an automated box until the mission is over. What they DO NOT have is the virtual army of engineers and technicians that made up the 4 full flight crews. Those that sat in one room for a 10 hour shift every day 7 days a week for the length of every mission. 4 shifts per 24 hour day. One team for EVERY system and sub system in the launch vehicle, capsule, second stage, third stage, lander, rover, every thing we use in space. There is no stable status quo in space. Everything is in flux and those teams must be experts in their system. It is they that the launch director goes to when things turn belly up. Apollo 13 is not the only time a mission had a bad problem. Every mission had at least 10 or more problems crop up. 13 was just the worst. Several more were life threatening too, they were just solved quickly and the missions went on.
    To build a launch vehicle is one thing. To make it fly was another. To insure it lasted the whole mission is yet another. The FLIGHT ENGINEERS are what made every mission a success. When things drop in the ash bin, the astronauts ask , "What are our options?" The flight director and crew are what give those options and solutions.

    If NASA was serious, they would have had a small team work with Boeing during construction of the SLS Booster. Then they would in turn teach more engineers what they learned. You must start this process years in advance. That is why NASA is not serious about returning to the moon. They spend what funds they get on many, many small programs, but ignore the important one.
    Read Gene Krantz book. (soon)

    The rumor has always been that the aliens up there told us to never come back. Good reason to stay away.
    I don't really think we ever went to the moon in the first place. It was faked somewhere on the desert on earth. It's already been proved human's can't stand all the radiation in space, as well as other things. Would not be the first of last time our government has lied to us.

    They haven't gone back because they never went. We needed to show superiority to Russia and a fake studio landing would do. There is the Van Allen radiation belt we can't get through not to mention fuel. sorry folks the cold war metrics changed shortly after the fake landing and we didn't need to go back because the Russian threat had been greatly reduced.

    • Peter Bruns

      Then how come the USSR could track Apollo 11 to the moon and back? And if you actually did some research on the VA belts instead of believing everything you're told, you'd know that they aren't a magic death field, that incinerates everything that comes near it.

    Moon is a toxic explosive glass shard dust bowl. It is not like sand or Earth dust. Moon dust is sharp sticky broken glass like knifes. Moon dust is also explosive. Astronaut moon walks and space walks will tell you space and the moon smell like spent gun power. That is due to suns solar debris are explosive free radicals that explode on contact with eyes lungs space suites air or every thing and anything it comes in contact with.

    NASA hasn't been back back to the moon because they never went. They know that with the internet/computers and everything else, faking it like before would be next to impossible. NASA has been lying about technology and how far along they are as well. As long as they keep their own people pushing the fake alien agenda and keep people skeptical about our technology, they will be able to fool the public forever.

    While I'm totally pro-space to say that "the endeavor [the SLS] is a big job creator" is a bit disingenuous. A lot of space contractors are defense contractors and these contracts are often more JOB SUBSIDIES than job creators. But most of all they are subsidies for billionaires.
    SpaceX is cool not only because they build cool tech. But also because they do it at a good price.

He wrote this book : checktheevidencecom.ipage.com/checktheevidence.com/pdf/George_Leonard__SOMEBODY%20ELSE%20IS%20ON%20THE%20MOON%20OP.pdf
    Kind of weird if you know that leonard did work for nasa... And if you dig the way nasa makes pictures classification what he states is true. In the online archives free access of nasa's appollo mission's pictures the content available is only around 30% of what was really taken : www.hq.nasa.gov/alsj/a17/images17.html

The one I remember had a north pole, only one moon landing which was contested as fake, four people in the keneddy car murder, and too many other differences to mention here. Whether people from your earth planet has been to the moon or not shouldnt be your main concern...waking up should be! You have many strangers among you that are not from this earth or timeline. That in itself should be solved first. Figure out how to get them back home safely first, then deal with your space nonsense issues. There are more earths than yours!!!

    NASA can't get to the moon and never has been able to. Funding is a feeble excuse - the cost of the shuttle was WAY more.
    To replace the Saturn V you'd simply need 3 SRBs and RD-180, hardly rocket science....
    The better question is 'Why have NASA been spending all their efforts on the ridiculous Apollo fakes?'
    and "Why hasn't NASA gone higher than 250-350 miles?". Let me guess, the excuse will be 'There's nothing to see there' - right.
    After the 9 flights of Apollo it's interesting that NASA didn't manage to get a single sighting or single photo of the stars. I wonder why they bothered with Hubble then if there was nothing to see?

    • Graham
      Graham 17 днів тому

      @Vyralator What cost _was_ intended? Why have any cost at all? NASA had plans for a garrison on the moon back then - why didn't they just get on with it? The entire fiasco of scrapping your best ever rocket system you've just spent $billions on and works perfectly - is if it didn't work.
      The very good, simple reason Saturn V was scrapped is because a) it wasn't what they said it was and b) it was a hopeless rocket.

    I don't know where is the challenge (We have now powerful computer .. in a size of a credit card, new materials, etc.).
    If you have money and resources, you can do it ! I guess it(s only to prove that Chinese or Indian scientists are as good as American scientists ?...who can really doubt about this ? no one...
    At least there is the ISS... but why going to Mars.. without the fund and the Help of other countries (Russia, Europe,...) ?
    I'm sure the future of Mankind is in space but the cost is astronomical right now. Let's hope we can start Space exploration and the creation of colonies before the end of all resources on the surface of the Earth....

    Ok, so if Apollo was so successful in delivering the mission, why do they need to further develop what they already know?
    If it worked, why change it?

      because it barely worked and by today's standards was an appalling health violation. sending humans to the moon is, risk-wise, about as safe as sending them to hiroshima immediately after the bomb. by nasa's own safety standards they simply could not send a manned craft to the moon now due to the levels of radiation they would be exposed to(which is partially why all the craft sent past LEO were unmanned after 1972). frankly though radiation isn't the only immediate health threat there is also the problem of space sickness which is a common ailment and has the lovely effect of vomiting, diarrhea, nausea and disorientation(all of which are detrimental to flying a wee tin can into space) as well as the most dangerous threat of fatal rocket-failures(where some part of the rocket malfunctions and the crew dies) which has killed several astronauts over the years
      not sending humans into space is probably for the best since machines are a lot hardier and do not require nearly as much money and planning and risk-management to execute, also like 24 astronauts have been to the moon with half of them touching down on the surface, do we really need to keep willy-waving by sending more? the money is better spent exploring and recording data like what we do now also we simply cannot afford the technologies we know, we have to develop cheaper ones

    "A series of missions that will send the first woman to the moon."

    How is that important in a non--political way?

    Devoting NASA to fighting Global Warming makes even less sense then Obama's scheme to turn it into a Muslim outreach program!!!

    Why didn’t we go back to the moon a decade earlier?Bureaucratic decay and on top of that, 8 years of Obama Hussein.

    The way NASA is funded and structured over the different american states it's a wonder they can get anything done. Put Elon in charge and we'll have warp tech before 2024 :P
