The hurdle for manned missions would be surviving the extremes of space - zero pressure, oxygen,... the temps about 3 deg Kelvin, the radiation,... the heat created by the friction of re-entry into the earth's atmosphere. Space around the earth isn't much different than space around the moon.
You've said you believed that was handled successfully, that they could have even waited in the moon's orbit.
Planes, helicopters,... take off and land 100's of times every day under the strong gravitational field of earth. Landing on and then escaping the moon's weak gravitational field would be the easiest part of the whole mission.
There is no system. The Feds have no business acumen and especially the libtards Just do it and things will be great. Yeah, great for the schemers and fraudsters.
Do you know how many times Citi has closed above $50 since January 1'st. 20 times and has always fallen back into the $40's. No different this time. It Is ranged bound and will be that way for the next 18 months.
I have as much of a license to give useful advice as you do to say landing on the moon was just propaganda fabricated by the government to boost national morale.
I'm going to be very kind here because I think you need some help. Unlike my imposter, fortunately for you help may be available.
Judging from common sense, you need to get on some meds.
By the way, all I say is that the manned Moon LANDING part did not happen. I do not have judgment on whether those astronauts were sent to the Lunar orbit or waited on the Earth orbit. But they have never LANDED on the Moon surface.
(1) I understand the programming that we all had been subject to. I know that it is hard. It took me about two years to fully process this notion in my mind.
(2) There is a guy who actually went to the space museums in DC and TX, and tool measures of the command module and lunar module on display. He concluded that what was shown on TV was impossible for the astronauts to perform in those modules on display. Check out youtube for his video.
(3) To me, I exam only the probability. From 1959 to 1967, NASA sent more than 40 robotic probes to the Moon, most of them failed until 1966. Manned mission is arguable many times more complicated than unmanned ones. What is the probability of a manned mission to be successful on its first try?
It did happen. And to some of your other post, it was in 1969. There was no such thing as computers. It was built with slide rules and mechanical controls. Some computers existed, but only mainframes. Humans were the only way to operate those machines.
The moon race was more of a military operation than civil. It was a major weapon against the USSR in the cold war.
You sound young and don't know the pride and ambition of Americans in those days. Don't judge the greatest generation and America of that era based on the temperature of America today.
Those Astronauts would have gladly given their lives in that program if the landing failed. Millennials today could even begin to accomplish what we older Americans did in those days.
Before you succumb to your 'common sense', I suggest you visit the museums in Washington's Smithsonian and the space center in Florida.
Straight down? You mean 30 cents? I don't make one hour trades. I make trades for several months at least and I've been here pounding the table since $47, looking for 58+ by EOY and 60+ by next March.. So pay attention. I don't care about 30 cent moves. I care about 20%+ moves. Stocks can go up or down in the short term. I don't care. This particular beast has been let out of its cage and it's going up long term.
good timing whbog.....that should all teach us the value of looking at what a stock has done over the last 200 days on average and trying to look forward. As you typed this and hour and a half ago....the stock has gone straight back down. Remember, everyone else sees the same data. If it were that easy...it would be that easy. Humans change the equation. There can be no link from past performance to future results...because if there were, humans would act on it and thus change the outcome. A perfect example is the Boston Celtics...which trade on the exchange and offer actual stock certificates. So they were purchased each year as gifts in early December. So stock price would pop each year at this time....until it was discovered and then it popped earlier for those wanting to get in before that....then before than, then the whole thing basically inverted and the trend broken. Stick with fundamentals.
You have to come across the answers to those questions through your own research.
All I say is that the manned LANDING part has never happened. I do not know whether the human astronauts were sent to Moon orbit or just waited at the high Earth orbit. But the LANDING on the Moon part did not happen.
What about the subsequent moon landings? Were they phony too? All pre-filmed on some backlot in Hollywood?
If this was all phony, there would have to have been hundreds, no, thousands of people in on the hoax. Yet, after 45 years, not one person has spilled the beans? What's the likelihood of that, quincehead?
I'm not a huge believer in charts but I see resistance around $52. What I do believe in is the trend line. Stocks that can develop a clear trend line direction tend to continue in that direction. And I think the long term value here justifies the positive trend. Everything negative is behind Citi. Banamex, CCAR failure, the DOJ, toxic assets, etc. I'm looking for 58+ by year end, which will just about equal tangible book.
