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!

The 3 people that landed on the moon in 1969 were Neil Armstrong (Commander), Michael Collins (Command Module Pilot), and Edwin E. Aldrin Jr. (Lunar Module Pilot). . The first people on the moon were Neil Armstrong and Edwin Aldrin.
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.
In the year neil Armstrong and Edwin Aldrin were the first men to land on the moon in the year 1969.
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.
\nNo space shuttle has ever landed on the Moon and none ever will. The shuttle is not designed for that. The name of the first lunar module to land on the Moon in 1969 is Eagle.
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. (MORE)
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. (MORE)
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.
It didn't, contrary to those who claim it was in a studio in Kentucky in June. (words taken from "Everything You Know is Wrong" by Chumbawamba). All of the allegations such as the "waving flag in airless space" to non-perpendicular shadows to multiple light sources have been disproved. Besides, what… about all the other flights that went there. No one has shown that there were any anomalies in film from those flights. But they did see the Loch Ness monster in the Sea of Tranquility. (MORE)
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.

They were real, and it's a terrible injustice to everyone who worked so hard to finally make that "giant leap for mankind" to pretend it was a multi billion dollar hoax! I however am not one of those people so don't assume this report to be biased. You cannot argue with numbers Do you believ…e that anyone who disagrees has a decorous understanding of what NASA are capable of? With a constantly inclining annual budget of over $100,000,000,000, over 219Â² miles at Kennedy space center alone and an inscrutable interest and understanding of how to make space travel possible, there is no watertight argument against the Apollo program succeeding. There is however mathematical proof that they did. The moon is, on average, 1.05 light seconds from Earth (a light second is the distance a photon of light travels in a second, it's not a measure of time). From Kennedy space center, Florida, you could shine a beam of light to the moon which will reflect off of a mirror and come back. It takes exactly 2.1 seconds for the light to come back into the receiver which means it had to have gone as far as the moon and back and it had to have a mirror to reflect it. The only way a mirror could have been placed on the moon, where Kennedy space center knows where to find it, is if an astronaut placed it there. Or perhaps the martians did it? Apollo 15 and the Kaguya space probe There is physical, visual and mathematical proof that man has been to the moon; 800 lbs. of basalt was acquired from the Apollo missions and transported back to earth. This type of basalt, which has been naturally formed over the billions of years that the moon has existed, is found nowhere on earth, so where else can it have come from but the moon? That is physical evidence. The visual evidence is the infamous comparison between a radar image, taken by the Japanese space probe Kaguya (Ka-goy-a), and an average photograph taken on the Apollo 15 mission. It depicts two different types of photograph, taken at different times, on missions by different countries, however the images are identical. I have personally scrutinized the two to find any differences and so may you; there is no difference between the two and there's no way that this could have been faked. The counter arguments You may be wondering about the flapping flag. Obviously there's no wind on the moon (there's no air) to make it flap but it does appear to flap a decent amount doesn't it? Yes, this is because of the lack of air. There is a near perfect vacuum on the moon, so when they put the flag on the moon it shook and there is no air resistance to stop the flag flapping until its weight decelerates its horizontal motion due to the gravitational pull of the moon. You could also question how the flag stays upright with nothing to hold it up? Well, quite simply, there is. There is a pole through the top of the flag holding, keeping it horizontal. In addition, this is a ridiculous argument regardless of its flaws. If NASA had tried to fake it, then they wouldn't let the flag be blown around by the wind coming through an open door would they? Otherwise ill informed conspiracy theorists would think that the flag was being blown around by wind. There is a sceptic site at http://www.ufos-aliens.co.uk/cosmicapollo.html These are quite convincing lies I'm afraid but the creator obviously doesn't have all the facts. Have you ever before seen the video near the top on any news channel before? no, because all the 'witnesses' are actors. Notice how there's no footage of these people at the places they claim they have been to http://wiki.answers.com/Q/Did man realy go to the moon&firstAnswer=1&updated=1&waNoAnsSet=1&status=T1BUSU1JWkVBTk9OWU1PVVNBTlNXRVJT# (MORE)
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 (MORE)
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.
Neil Armstrong and Edwin 'Buzz' Aldrin in the L.E.M Eagle as part of the Apollo 11 mission.
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
The American space centre N.A.S.A was involved in landing an American on the moon by the end of the decade. As was told by President John Kennedy.
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. (MORE)
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.

The Lunar Excursion Module, or LEM did the trick. the two man craft separated from the command module and used its expendable descent stage to retro-rocket down to the lunar surface. this consumes a lot of fuel, despite the lower lunar gravity, when exploration was finished the astronauts manned the… upper stage of the LEM ( sometimes called the Bug) and leaving the spent lower stage on the Moon ( space junk, as it were) and a built-in launching pad, blasted off in the upper stage- to rendezvous with the solitary astronaut manning the command-service module orbiting the moon. a rather wasteful means of travel, but there were ascent and descent stages on the lunar module, and presumably separate control consoles or boards for each to avoid firing the wrong thrusters! The Lunar modules were not built to withstand re-entry ( those in museums are models used for training or simulation) and were abandoned to burn up in the upper atmosphere, only the Command module with three astros aboard made the re-entry as it was equipped with heat shielding.

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? (MORE)
There was a race between countries to see who could get there first, and America won.
There is a technical answer to this which is very complex. There is another answer for this that is also appropriate but not very technical. The first and subsequent moon landings (and one near miss!0 were the result of at least 10 years of determined and calculated effort on the part of literally t…housands of like minded individuals who felt it was their mission to accomplish the astronomical feet of safely landing, and returning earth people to the moon. People of ALL walks of life participated in and shared the glories and frustrations of this event. At least 3 U.S. Astronauts lost their lives while making this attempt (Gus Grissom, Ed White, and Roger Chaffee on Apollo 1 while on launch pad tests). It would be safe to say others gave their lives as well in support of what they determined to be a noble and worthwhile endeavor! There were others in the race, notably the Russian Cosmonauts, many who also gave their lives in pursuit of a dream. (MORE)
4 people landed on the moon in 1969 Neil Armstrong and Edwin 'Buzz' Aldrin Apollo 11 Charles Conrad and Alan Bean Apollo 12
It didn't. The space shuttle doesn't go beyond orbit. What landed on the moon was another space craft entirely.
It was a quick visit to the moon, samples of moon rocks were collected, photographs were taken, and brought back to Earth.
No. That would have been a poor time for a moon-walk. The landing took place during the waxing crescent phase. The sun was just a few days past rising and low on the horizon at the Sea of Tranquility, and the shadows were long there. Had it been the time of Full Moon, shadows would have been …much shorter, and the Apollo astronauts would have had a much more difficult time negotiating the visual landing, as well as maintaining their bearings and judging distances once on the lunar surface. Also, they would have been looking at a "New Earth" phase, with the earth completely non-illuminated and close to the sun in their sky ... a very poor set-up for shooting publicity photos from the moon. (MORE)
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. (MORE)
The first man o set foot on the surface of the noon was astronaut Neil Armstrong, of the U.S.A.
The lunar module of Apollo11 was called Eagle after Jules Vernes novel From the earth to the moon.
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.
Apollo 11, July 20, 1969 Apollo 12, November 19, 1969 Apollo 14, February 5, 1971 Apollo 15, August 2, 1971 Apollo 16, April 21, 1972 Apollo 17, December 11, 1972
buzz Aldrin and neil Armstrong landed on the moon & Armstrong was the first to step onto the surface. Michael Collins remained behind; piloting the command module orbiting the moon.
There were only two lunar landings from the year 1960 _ 1969, they wetre Apolo 11 and Apollo 12..
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
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.
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.
The Lunar Module, or LM... then known as the Lunar Excursion Module, until someone realized that the word "excursion" seemed frivolous to dim people, of whom there are quite a number.
Because sending manned missions to the moon is very expensive and NASA has a limited budget.
