New images showing the Apollo landing sites taken from orbit have been released by NASA.

The images show the final resting place of the lunar 12, 14 and 17 descent stages, the tracks left by the astronauts as they walked around on the surface as well as those left by the lunar rover are also clearly visible.

"NASA's Lunar Reconnaissance Orbiter (LRO) captured the sharpest images ever taken from space of the Apollo 12, 14 and 17 landing sites."

Hello everyone What is most amazing for me is the fact that ALL Apollo 11 - 17 (-13) landings are in the same are! Just imagine - the other side of the Moon has thousands of kilometers of space to explore. Yet - NASA was landing all Apollo missions in just ONE are. See for yourself: http://www.google.com/moon/ Have you ever wonder why? Even if the landings are kilometers away from each other - still just one black spot area on the Moon. Maybe John Lear was right - it was our, Earth, designated are?

We did that....40 years ago, see? One of thousands of surface level pictures we took on the 14 EVAs we did on the Moon. We actually haven't needed any pictures since then. The LRO pictures are just fun! One little correction - we do not question if USA landed on the Moon. Yes - they did. The pictures; however, were taken on special grounds on Earth. Call it double stimulator or exercise ground. The cross marks do not cover on these pictures, shadows do not comply with logic, lack of dust and there are no visible stars. Stars are visible from the Moon WAY MORE CLEAR THAN FROM EARTH AS THERE IS ... [More]

The cross marks do not cover on these pictures, shadows do not comply with logic, lack of dust and there are no visible stars. Stars are visible from the Moon WAY MORE CLEAR THAN FROM EARTH AS THERE IS NO LIGHT POLLUTION. Also - no clouds to speak off. So - here you have it. At the same time - please tell all the conspiracy buffs to get a real job. Apollos landed on the Moon - only NASA screw it up by ... [More]

**EDIT** **Peter, please do not quote long posts, particularly when they contain images, just to respond with a handful of words** He said it all but he can not speak ... http://www.youtube.c...feature=related **Similarly, if you expect to be taken seriously in a discussion, you need to express what about your post you consider to be worth discussing.**

It is the height of bad manners and laziness to 'argue' by posting Youtube links on forums with no explanatory text. But given I see above that Peter can't be bothered trimming quotes, didn't bother researching why people and cameras can't easily see stars in broad flippin' daylight, nor has he bothered to address the reply (even though it has been explained hundreds of times here and elsewhere) - such behavior is hardly unexpected. Perhaps next time he might choose a topic that he actually knows something about..

He said it all but he can not speak ... http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=rfCzUuA8M4U&feature=related Neil has said a great deal, and very well, many times over the years. But if you think I am going to allow a nonsense post including you tube videos of Neil Armstrong that are deliberately mis-interpreted, in lieu of answering the question I put to you, you've got another thing coming. I asked you what you meant by referring to "the lack of dust" and "the shadows not following logic". Answer the question. Show me the lack of dust on the lunar surface, which is obviously covered by it. And s... [More]

Looks into the blackhole from which such sillyness must come from too Mid ! Where do these people get this stuff? Neil A. is an American hero ! Nuff said !

Neil is an American hero, sure (despite the fact that he would blush at the thought of calling himself one), but more importantly, he has spoken to the Apollo program with more accuracy and eloquence than anyone else. Fools of course mis-interpret, or attempt to put ridiculous meanings to the words he has spoken in his many addresses over the years. Sibrel did it, other fools have done it as well, and--a plethora of... [More]

**Tone it down, guys. Whatever else Peter is, he is new to the forum, and we do make allowances for that. Driving him away is not teaching.**
