Normally I don’t put much credence into conspiracy theories, but I’ve just read that there is not enough money available in Obama’s budget for 2011 for a return to the moon for NASA and mankind. Or at least American mankind. Now this really got me wondering. Hell, it was done over forty years ago.
Not so difficult and surely easy to do again. Just like re-inventing the transistor radio or teflon fry pans. The two tangible results of putting Neil and Buzz on the moon. Or, is it that it is not so easy to repeat? We have all heard the 2001, Hollywood and Arthur C. Clarke conspiracies about the moon landing haven’t we? So, just imagine for a split second that Neil and Buzz only landed on a Hollywood set. And now, forty years later we are waiting for the sequel.
You know, like Rocky II, III, IV and V. Apollo 11, the sequel! Well, I get this strange feeling in my bones. It would cost peanuts to put a couple of dudes back on the moon, if, and I repeat if, it was actually done in 1969. Surely this is logical? I mean, how many technological miracles of 1969 can’t be repeated now by a 15 year old in a high school science class? I don’t want to be seen as a spoilsport or a purveyor of conspiracy theories, but hell, this one has a strange odour about it.
C’mon! Putting man back on the moon should be as easy and as cheap as re-mixing a Jimi Hendrix 16 track recording of The Wind Cries Mary! I smell something nasty in the woodshed here.
