As the 50th anniversary of the historic Apollo moon landing approaches, NASA is readying itself to return to the lunar surface.The agency's best and brightest are hard at work to deliver on NASA's ambitious plans of getting back to the moon -- and establishing a permanent presence there -- by 2024. The new moon missions, named Artemis, will combine rockets, landers, rovers, and a new space station, the Lunar Gateway, in orbit around the moon to deliver robots, and eventually humans, back to the surface for the first time since 1972. In May, we were invited to the NASA Ames Research Center at Moffett Field in California to participate in and film moon landing simulations with NASA Administrator Jim Bridenstine. Bridenstine, an ex-Navy pilot who flew E-2 Hawkeye aircraft and F/A-18 Hornets, walked us through the landing procedures in NASA's state-of-the-art Vertical Motion Simulator (VMS) housed at NASA Ames.You can see his expert piloting skills and hear the administrator's take … [Read more...] about Riding NASA’s moon landing simulator with chief Jim Bridenstine
Nasa moon landing
Did we go to the moon?Yes. That's the answer. Yes we did go. We, us humans, went to the moon, in 1969, when Buzz Aldrin and Neil Armstrong landed the Eagle lunar module on the surface of our planet's natural satellite. There's no grand conspiracy theory, no reason to think we haven't stretched our legs on the soil of our moon. We went up there -- and we left footprints.However, Stephen Curry, who plays for NBA team Golden State Warriors, doesn't believe this great achievement of human endeavor occurred at all. Appearing on The Ringer's "Wingin' It" podcast Sunday, Curry, along with hosts Vince Carter and Kent Bazemore, resoundingly suggested humans have never been to the moon."We ever been to the moon?" Curry asks.The hosts quickly respond in the negative."They gonna come get us, I don't think so either," Curry responds, presumably using "they" to refer to the Men In Black who usually silence this type of universal truth speaking.Shouts in the background then decry the … [Read more...] about NBA star Steph Curry drops ball, suggests NASA moon landing was faked
I don’t know, did we land on the moon? Plenty of people do not believe that we did, including the people in the farthest reaches of the internet and the most spiral minded Stanley Kubrick fans, but Stephen Curry, nice-guy star of the Golden State Warriors and husband of Ayesha Curry, is not one of these people, OKAY? DEFINITELY BELIEVE HIM WHEN HE SAYS HE IS NOT! Apparently Curry went on one of The Ringer’s zillion podcasts earlier this week and offhandedly mentioned that he believed astronauts did not land on the moon, which immediately prompted NASA to invite him to the Johnson Space Center’s lunar lab to show him proof that yes, humans did land on the freakin moon. The context, via the Times: “We ever been to the moon?” he asked. The others, in unison, agreed that the answer was no. “They’re going to come get us,” Curry replied. “Sorry, I don’t want to start conspiracies.” Finberg expressed some skepticism, asking … [Read more...] about Steph Curry Is NOT a Moon Landing Conspiracy Theorist, OK?

Some people think the United States didn't really land on the moon. How come? See more pictures of the moon. Space Frontiers/Hulton Archive/Getty Images Ever since NASA broadcast its visits to the moon between 1969 and 1972 to millions of people around Earth, conspiracy theorists have debated endlessly over photographs and video of the journey. Judging by the dedication some have to the cause, the subject of whether or not the moon landings were a hoax rivals only the assassination of President John F. Kennedy and the presence of Area 51 in popularity. The Fox Network even aired a television special in 2001, nearly 30 years after the last Apollo mission, titled "Conspiracy Theory: Did We Land on the Moon?" Poring over every single detail for inconsistencies and potential government tampering, people who buy the moon landing conspiracy theory strive to prove NASA never went to the moon -- instead, they believe the organization filmed a series of fake moon landings in a … [Read more...] about Why do some people believe the moon landings were a hoax?
