On July 20 1969 NASA had accomplished the unthinkable by putting the first man on the moon. A total of 12 people have landed on the moon over a period of 41 months. In total, there were six missions to the moon during that approximate three and a half year period. On December 14, 1972 the last moon landing took place. This achievement was nothing short of greatness and showed what man can attain with ingenuity and determination. There is one thing; however, that has always bothered me about the moon landings. Why have we never been back?
The question of man’s failure to return to the moon has often been compared to the question, “what if no one had followed in Christopher Columbus’s footsteps and returned to the New World?” The real reason why NASA stopped in 1972 was that Nixon canceled much of the Apollo program, most likely because of money. And the most popular theory on why NASA has never gone back still has to do with money. Estimated costs to plan, prepare and carry out a moon mission is upward in the range of billions of dollars. There is also speculation that since NASA has already accomplished this feat and found no real profitable natural resources that a return trip isn’t economically viable. I for one have always been skeptical of these explanations simply because money has always been misappropriated by our government. If you don’t agree just do some research on how much money has been spent on the Iraq and Afghanistan wars in the last decade.
One of the top arguments among conspiracy theorists for NASA’s failure to return to the moon has nothing to do with money. And if their theories hold any validity, mankind has been denied one of the greatest stories in our history. What if the real reason for never returning to the moon had to do with what the astronauts discovered there upon their arrival? What if they found evidence that someone or something had already been there and was still there?
