What? There astrophysicists and engineers etc...have been developing space technology for a long time now. We go into space all the time, we have a space station in orbit and we have plans to go to mars.
The technology we have today is far more advanced than what we used to go to the moon. We can do it, the only reason we have not returned is because there was no political reason to do so. At the time the US was trying to win the space race but now there is no such reason to go. It is extremely expensive and there is very little reason to fund another trip to the moon, especially when we can look at getting past the next space milestone...mars. They are currently working on colonizing mars and that is not just a dream, they can do it.
People involved in space travel and technological development have always had the drive and show of will to accomplish great things. The problem has always been the politics, the funding and the public support (or lack thereof).
and so who taught them?
agreed, so why couldn't we do that again? plus we still have all their documentation from the Apollo missions, it is history, I don't think we would nave any trouble repeating it.
I thought about the possibilities, you never never know till never ever go.
