Did man really land on the moon?
Yes. The Apollo 11 mission landed the first humans on the Moon. Launched on July 16, 1969, the third lunar mission of NASA's Apollo Program was crewed by Commander Neil Alden Armstrong, Command Module Pilot Michael Collins, and Lunar Module Pilot Edwin Eugene 'Buzz' Aldrin, Jr. On July 20, Armstrong and Aldrin became the first humans to walk on the Moon, while Collins orbited in the Command Module.
The mission fulfilled President John F. Kennedy's goal of reaching the moon by the end of the 1960s, which he had expressed during a speech given before a joint session of Congress on May 25, 1961.

Yes, man actually did land on the moon. Various conspiracy theories concerning the moon landings being fake are not credible and are rife with inaccuracies and false information. Next Answer: Yes man did actually land on the moon. It was Neil Armstrong and his crew, and there is proof because I… read this book about it!!! . Hi! Yes, human life did step foot on the moon. Neil Armstrong and Buzz Aldrin were the first two, of twelve, to set foot on the moon. ________________________ Personally I do not agree that we ever went to the moon because if we did why haven't we been back!!!??? No bucks, no Buck Rogers. Republican President Nixon ended Apollo as quickly as he could get away with, renamed Cape Kennedy "Cape Canaveral", and saw to it that the last Moonworthy Apollo capsules etc. were wasted on a publicity stunt called "Apollo-Soyuz". Since then, no President has pushed to go again. The public was getting so blaze' about Apollo that people actually griped when Lunar coverage cut into their soap operas! ------------------------------------------------------- Also how is the footprint still there (the "wind" created dust when the space shuttle landed so why wouldn't it when it set off - this "wind" would have blown the footprint away). No air means no wind. Remember, the the Ascent stage of the Lunar Module was several feet above the Moon's surface, supported by the Descent Stage (the gold boxy part with the legs). So the Ascent engine exhaust hit this, not the lunar surface. Since there is no air, there is nothing to carry dust, or for that matter, to be stirred up the way rockets on Earth stir up the air around them. Also, no air means that rocket exhaust sprays out wider, as there is no air it has to push aside. Spraying out wider means less power to push dust in any given spot, even if the exhaust could have reached the ground. ---------------------------------------- in addition to this the flag in all of the photos appears to be moving in the wind but any logical person knows that there is no wind or atmosphere in space so this would not have happened. The flags had a metal rod sewn into the top edge, to hold them out to look as though they were flying. Footage of the astronauts twisting the pole back and forth to get the pole into the ground, is edited by moon hoax jokers so you can't hear that what they are doing is wiggling the flagpole to get it deeper. The flag *never* moves unless an astronaut is moving it, or has just moved it and it is settling down, or at the very least, brushes past it. If you look closely, the flag moves back and forth like a pendulum at these times... it does not catch air and billow as a flag in air does. ------------------------------------------ As well as this there is an area of desert that cannot be accessed by an unauthorised person and anyone who comes into a close range of this area often is killed/shot so there are conspiracies that suggest this area is where the faked moon landing occurred. The military has a good many places that people can't just wander in, as it is hard to tell a spy from any other guy with a camera. This does not in any way imply that any conspiracies are going on there. People also forget that Apollo was a civilian organization. It is understandable that people forget this... remember "I Dream of Jeannie" portrayed NASA as if it were military! Conspiracy buffs can and do "suggest" a good many conspiracies. But somehow the dog always ate their proof. ;-) -------------------------------------------------- Overall it is just a matter of your own opinion but why should we believe everything "higher figures of authority" say as at the time there was a race with Russia and i think we just wanted to say we beat them - even tho we weren't actually as technologically advanced as them. (It all makes sense!!!) The Russians would have been the first to cry foul if their radar and telescopes did not show the Apollo capsule going to and from the Moon. If they had not heard the astronauts talking on the radio, if they had not seen them on their own TV gear... they would have been very loud on the subject! it is true they had a heavier lift rocket, but theirs was simply 18 smaller rockets lashed together. They generated a great deal of thrust, if they didn't explode on the pad, which regrettably happened. Since we had less lift, we had to learn to miniaturize electronics, etc. The first CPU on a chip was made for Apollo craft... you are using its descendant now! And no one on Earth has ever been able to copy a moon rock... which are routinely sent to researchers all over the world, who would also raise a fuss if they were fake... remember, they have analysis techniques now no one could have foreseen then. But it takes billions of years of perfectly dry crystal growth, meteoroid impact, and high energy radiation impacts, to make a moon rock. That's nothing that could be copied, even today... let alone back then. -------------------------------------------- So, yes, beyond all reasonable scientific doubt, men *did* walk on the Moon! Please see the links below; they will help a lot in understanding what really happened. ( Full Answer )
Yes they did. Those space suits cost millions of dollars for a reason. People who do not believe this happened just really do not know much about science at all. It's clear that 500,000 people can't keep a secret. The whole hoax idea started from some people who did not know enough about science …to understand what the photos were showing, and so assumed the photos were fake! But if you go to badastronomy.com or clavius.org these simple mistakes are explained in such a way that the "hoax" idea no longer makes any sense... not that it ever really did! ( Full Answer )
Yes, they really did. The things that some people don't understand well enough to believe, are explained at the badastronomy.com site and the clavius.org site. There really isn't any doubt, but some people make their living selling phonied-up books and DVDs that say it was a hoax. I, personally, don…'t think that 400,000 people can keep a secret, and that is how many worked on Apollo! ( Full Answer )
Neil Armstrong was the first man to set foot on the surface of theMoon on July 21, 1969. Armstrong and fellow astronaut Buzz Aldrinspent approximately 2.5 hours exploring the surface.
Neil A. Armstrong and Edwin Aldrin landed on the moon together in July 1969. Armstrong was the first to step out of the landing craft onto the surface, and Aldrin followed him a short time later.
Yes. The things some people don't understand well enough to believe, are all explained at badastronomy.com and clavius.org .
Yes, he did.. _______________. Stories about this not happening are preposterous, silly rumor. It was many years ago, but in the living memory of millions and millions of people. Thousands (probably many thousands) of people were involved in the moon missions, and it is completely unbelievable tha…t if it were faked, it would not have leaked by now. ( Full Answer )
July 20, 1969 was when the spaceflight, Apollo 11, landed the firsthumans on the moon. Neil Armstrong and Buzz Aldrin are consideredthe first men to walk on the moon.
Apollo 17 was the last human mission to the moon; December 7-19, 1972. The astronauts were Eugene A. Cernan, Harrison H. Schmitt, and Ronald E. Evans. The actual last landing on the Moon to date was on December 11, 1972, and Cernan and Schmitt were on the lunar surface for three days. Gene Cernan w…as the last man to walk on the moon, on December 14, 1972. ( Full Answer )
The 2nd man to land and walk on the moon was Edwin "Buzz" Aldrin, he was on the same mission as the first man to walk on the moon, Neil Armstrong. Since they were both in the same spacecraft they both landed on the moon at the same time.
The first men to land on the moon was, Commander Neil A. Armstrong and Edwin "Buzz" Aldrin Jr. Another person who went out in space with them was Michal Collins, who orbited the moon while the other two went down to it. Neil Alden Armstrong was born August 5, 1930; he is an American aviator an…d former astronaut, test pilot, aerospace engineer, university professor, and United States Naval Aviator. He was the first person to set foot on the Moon. Buzz Aldrin or Edwin Eugene Aldrin, Jr. was born January 20, 1930; he is an American mechanical engineer, retired United States Air Force pilot and astronaut who was the Lunar Module pilot on Apollo 11, the first manned lunar landing in history. On July 20, 1969, he was the second human being to set foot on the Moon after Commander Neil A. Armstrong. Michael Collins was born October 31, 1930 in Rome, Italy; he is a former American astronaut and test pilot. He orbited the moon while Neil Armstrong and Buzz Aldrin walked on the moon.

Charles "Pete" Conrad was the third man to take the lunar walk. Conrad and astronaut Alan Bean walked on the Moon on NASA's Apollo12 mission, November 19, 1969.
not a real mean just the craters and such make it look like a human face on the moon
Neil Armstrong first set foot on the moon at 10:56 P.M. EDT on July 20, 1969. 1969: Man takes first steps on the Moon . American Neil Armstrong has become the first man to walk on the Moon. The astronaut stepped onto the Moon's surface, in the Sea of Tranquility, at 0256 GMT, nearly 20 minutes af…ter first opening the hatch on the Eagle landing craft. Armstrong had earlier reported the lunar module's safe landing at 2017 GMT with the words: "Houston, Tranquility Base here. The Eagle has landed." As he put his left foot down first Armstrong declared: "That's one small step for man, one giant leap for mankind." He described the surface as being like powdered charcoal and the landing craft left a crater about a foot deep. 'We came in peace' The historic moments were captured on television cameras installed on the Eagle and turned on by Armstrong. Armstrong spent his first few minutes on the Moon taking photographs and soil samples in case the mission had to be aborted suddenly. He was joined by colleague Edwin "Buzz" Aldrin at 0315 GMT and the two collected data and performed various exercises - including jumping across the landscape - before planting the Stars and Stripes flag at 0341 GMT. They also unveiled a plaque bearing President Nixon's signature and an inscription reading: "Here men from the planet Earth first set foot upon the Moon July 1969 AD. We came in peace for all mankind." After filming their experience with a portable television camera the astronauts received a message from the US President. President Nixon, in the White House, spoke of the pride of the American people and said: "This certainly has to be the most historic telephone call ever made." Many other nations - including the UK - sent messages of congratulation. Moscow Radio announced the news solemnly in its 1030 GMT broadcast. As Aldrin and Armstrong collected samples, Michael Collins told mission control in Houston he had successfully orbited the Moon in the mother ship Columbia, and take-off was on schedule for 1750 GMT this evening. 1969 ( Full Answer )
Apollo 13 did not land on the moon because of an explosion in its oxygen tanks on the journey to the moon. Apollos 11, 12, 14, 15, 16, and 17 did make successful lunar landings.
There are some conspiracy theorists that believe the moon landingwas a hoax, but overall, it is an accepted fact that Neil Armstrongdid indeed land on the moon.
The Russians (in those days, the USSR) did have plans to land a man on the moon, but the failure of the N1 launcher rocket caused the project to be abandoned in the 1970s. So no Russian has ever walked on the moon.
I don't think any one landed on the moon because on the show when they landed their were no stars and the flag was blowing and their is no air in space
They did not. It has been proven beyond a shadow of a doubt. We do not possess the technology even today in the 21st century. And we most certainly did not have it in 1969. The moon landings were nothing but a 'cold war' bluff on the part of then President JFK. The theory being that sometimes you do…n't have to be great but just look that way in your enemies eyes. JFK needed America to look superior to the USSR. ( Full Answer )
Yeah. Neil Armstrong was the first man on the moon, on 21 st July 1969. . Yes lots of people have but the first person to was Neil Armstrong
Yes. As well as the video evidence the astronauts brought back moon rocks for scientists to analyse. They left a gold plaque with a quote on and the bottom half of the lunar lander both of which are still on the moon. They should be easy to find with a probe or if astronauts go again in the future a…nd can corroborate the astronauts story. ( Full Answer )
Charles Conrad was the third man to walk on the moon, it was in 1969 December.
The two Apollo astronauts first landed on the moon ,on a place called Tran quality Base.
YES, without a doubt, American astronauts landed on the moon. The things that some people are not educated enough to understand, are confusing them. Yes, the flag was held up by a bent wire, so that it would look as though it was waving. But footage shows it being rock-still except when the astro…nauts are moving it or the flagpole around- or have just done so and it is still settling down. One piece of footage shows an astronaut brushing past the flag, which swings the front edge like a pendulum- it does not billow, as there is no air for it to catch. The most popular moon pics are the ones that turned out well, so some think the fact that so many moon pics look good, is suspicious. Look up on the Net- there are sites out there that show *all* the lunar pics, and many are duds. The astronauts landed on the Moon during daylight, but while the Sun was still low and it hadn't heated up. And there are those who think it is suspicious that pictures taken in *broad daylight* have no stars in them! Sites like clavius.org or the badastronomy site will help you understand what the less educated don't. ( Full Answer )
Much of the world stood silent for a minute glued to their telivision sets and enjoyed history taking place in front of their eyes.
Strictly speaking, the first words spoken from the moon are "Houston. Tranquility Base here. The Eagle has Landed.". In popular culture, however, the first words are "That's one small step for man, one giant leap for mankind"
The answer to this question is kind of greedy, the Russians were the first to launch a satellite into space, the first to launch into space, and the first to have a working spaceship! The only way United States had a chance in advancing in the space race was by going to the moon. Now this raised a l…ot of conspiracy theories because the Americans tried several times to launch a space craft into the space, but not even one space craft made it higher than five hundred feet. So it is weird to some people that all of a sudden, a space ship made it into space, and even more surprisingly made it to the moon. Me myself, I believe in the moon landing, but there is a plaussible reason for why people think it was fake, sorry I went off track a little, but it seems like you don't know a lot, so I tried to include some more important details, in summery the answer was : Americans hate being 2nd, they wanted to get ahead of the Russians in space travel.

There have been 6 manned moon landings, the most famous and first was on 20 July 1969. The full list is.... Apollo 11 - 20 July 1969 (Neil Armstrong, Edwin "Buzz" Aldrin) . Apollo 12 - 19 November 1969 (Charles "Pete" Conrad, Alan Bean) . Apollo 14 - 5 February 1971(Alan B. Shepard, Edgar Mitchel…l) . Apollo 15 - 30 July 1971 (David Scott, James Irwin) . Apollo 16 - 21 April 1972 (John Young, Charles Duke) . Apollo 17 - 11 December 1972 (Eugene Cernan, Harrison H. "Jack" Schmitt) ( Full Answer )
Scientific exploration, and the desire to show the USA could accomplish something no other nation could.
Gene Cernan and Harrison Schmitt were the crew on the last manned Apollo flight, Apollo 17.. Who was the last can be answered different ways, depending on semantics.. They both landed together. Cernan was first out, so you can say Schmitt was the twelfth of twelve different men to walk on the moon…, so was he last? Cernan was the last one back in the LM when they came back to earth, so no one has walked on the moon after him, so is he last? ( Full Answer )
There was a race between countries to see who could get there first, and America won.
Honestly I don't think so because in the pictures and video's the flag he puts on is waving and flags only wave if there is wind but there is no wind on the moon. Well that's my opinion. Also how is he the first man on the moon the camera crew and things were on the moon too, no?
No. When there is a full Moon, the Moon is on the opposite side of the Earth to the Sun, and the Sun's rays reflect off the moon and back to Earth. So we have SUN >>> EARTH >>> MOON. At this time, the side of the Moon facing the Earth is in full sunlight, and the Sun is very high in the sky as s…een from the Apollo landing sites. This means that shadows on the Moon are very short at this time, which would have made it more difficult for astronauts to see detail on the surface, especially during the landing. So in fact the landings took place whilst it was "morning" on the Moon, so that shadows would make the surface detail stand out more. ( Full Answer )
Apollo 1 did not land on the moon. In fact it caught fire and killed the 3 astronauts that were to fly on it and the mission was canceled.
The first man o set foot on the surface of the noon was astronaut Neil Armstrong, of the U.S.A.
In July 1969 Neil Armstrong landed on the moon with NASA. So the first man has all ready landed.
12 Americans walked on the lunar surface, 1969 to 1972. Proven beyond a shadow of a doubt. Even the Russians admit that.
Of course it really did happen. As people watched the launch of Apollo11 from Cape Kennedy, and the craft landed in the ocean, so navy aw it as well.
Of course there was moon landings, there were 12 astronauts, you can see their footprints, and there are six lunar modules and flags on the moon, for doubting idiots to be convinced.
The man landed on the moon, the side that faces earth all the time. They did not choose the dark side as they would then loose radio contact with the astronauts.
Many people landed on the moon, but the first person to do it is Neil Armstrong
No there is no man or a rabbit on the moon.It is all could imagination .
Neil Armstrong was the first person to land on the moon 20 July 1969. Buzz Aldrin was in the ship with Neil, and was the second man on the moon. After that there have been 5 successful (and very many unsuccessful) moon landings, and in total there have been 12 people on the moon.
Of course. Edwin Aldrin was with him, and Michael Collins was waiting for them out in the car.
Buzz Aldrin and Neil Armstrong Apollo 11(1969) Michael Collins remained in the command space craft in lunar orbit. 5 other Apollo missions landed others on the moon as well.
Yes there is the footprints on the moon, the flag, medals . plaque left behind with the flag and crashed lunar module.
Because sending manned missions to the moon is very expensive and NASA has a limited budget.
Neil Alden Armstrong (August 5, 1930 - August 25, 2012) was the first person to walk on the Moon.
Of course. Edwin Aldrin landed with him, and Michael Collins waited for them out in the car, circling the block until they were finished and ready to leave. .
No. Manned orbits of the Moon were done in 1968, but nobody landedthere until 1969.
