Amazon founder Jeff Bezos has discovered the five F-1 engines that launched Apollo 11 in to space.

It's the NASA mission that launched the United States into space history, Apollo 11, and like most other space missions the Apollo astronauts were thrust in to space using conventional rocket engines that would, at a certain altitude, fall away from the main capsule and drop back down to earth, usually landing in the ocean.

Now a private expedition funded by Amazon.com founder Jeff Bezos has uncovered the location of the rocket engines that launched Apollo 11 with the intention of hauling them up from the depths and putting them on display.

"When NASA's mighty Saturn V rocket launched the historic Apollo 11 mission to land the first men on the moon in 1969, the five powerful engines that powered the booster's first stage dropped into the Atlantic Ocean and were lost forever."

the moon landing was real but the whole thing was faked because it was actully an anceint aleins mission to recover artifacts from the surface nasa is afraid of the public relations witch is why they wont go back ,because theve already told the biggst lie of all history,the govenment cant afford to keep it all under wraps anymore not with todays video technology,everyone would ask why is it in black and white? why no color? why no hd cam? why why why its just to hard to keep lieing about so when they go we dont know about it and they dont use rockets anymore that was 50 years ago now ,we have ...

Please use the Did we land on the moon? thread in the conspiracies section to discuss possible cover-ups, the Space Exploration and Spaceflight section is intended for straight discussion on space related topics.

Please use the Did we land on the moon? thread in the conspiracies section to discuss possible cover-ups, the Space Exploration and Spaceflight section is intended for straight discussion on space related topics. Greetings; Long time lurker here and this is my first post. I am piggy backing on this thread for a short answer, and I don't see a need to start a new thread for such a minor issue. LCROSS is said to have taken a butt load of photos of the Moons surface. I have searched for the galleries, but all I find is the NASA LCROSS site and they only show highlight photos (at least the best I ... [More]

XLR8... Are you sure you're not actually looking for the LRO (Lunar Reconnaissance Orbiter) galleries...? LCROSS did take images, but mainly it was just concerned with imaging the crash of a Centaur rocket stage into the crater named Cabeus on the Moon before itself crashing into the same crater about 6 minutes later. - http://www.nasa.gov/mission_pages/LCROSS/main/ LRO is currently orbiting the Moon since late June 2009 and has taken some incredibly detailed images of the Apollo landing sites. - http://www.nasa.gov/mission_pages/LRO/multimedia/index.html and http://lroc.sese.asu.edu/ Cz

LCROSS is said to have taken a butt load of photos of the Moons surface. It is possible that you are confusing LCROSS (Lunar CRater Observation and Sensing Satellite) with LRO (Lunar Reconnaissance Orbiter). These 2 missions were launched together. LCROSS basically consisted of a small spacecraft and the spent upper stage of the launch vehicle. The Centsur stage was crashed into a crater near the moon's south pole. The small spacecraft flew through the debris cloud formed by the impact, analysing it in the search for water, before impacting the moon itself some for minutes later. The main miss... [More]

Thanks CZERO for the links and summery, and thank you Waspie Dwarf for the summery of the missions. Now I can set out flooding the forum with my theories of there being a BigFoot tribe on the Moon. ..............Just joking

take a look at these official nasa badges and ask urself what they "really" mean and why its importiant to put ancient terrestrial sites on a official nasa astronaurt badge. the truth is in plain view. Maybe YOU should take a good look at what the url of these "official NASA badges" says: http://i1038.photobucket.com/albums/a464/thealemos/alternatepatches.jpg

Apologies for necroposting, but it seemed more appropriate to update this thread than to start a new one. Apollo moon rocket engines recovered by Amazon CEO preserved for display August 4, 2015– Two and a half years after an expedition led by the CEO of Amazon.com raised them off the ocean floor, the historic rocket engine parts that launched NASA astronauts on at least three missions to the moon are now preserved for museum display.The conservation team at the Cosmosphere International SciEd Center and Space Museum (formerly known as the Kansas Cosmosphere and Space Center) in Hutchinson, Kan...

Back in 2012, Jeff Bezos, the founder of Amazon.com, announced that Bezos Expeditions discovered the location of several long-lost rockets used by the Apollo program to launch people to the moon. Now, those rockets are on display. Jeff Bezos' Recovered Apollo Rocket Parts Have Been Preserved
