Question of the Week: Has Man Really Been to the Moon?

One of the few things I remember as a little girl was watching the static picture of 2 men walking on the moon on the 3-channel TV set in our house. That beeping and static talking from their  microphones still bothers my ears. Within the last few years, though, this question about whether or not man has really been to the moon has come up. So, that's why I ask you this question today.

Personally, I think the conspiracy theorists are correct. I don't think we've not been to the moon. Why would NASA - or any other space group in the world for that matter - not have sent more astronauts to the moon in the past 53 years? 

And when I think of all the trillions and trillions of dollars wasted on space research, for reasons I don't understand, I get ill. I'm sorry if I don't understand nor appreciate the fact that a spacecraft touched the sun. How can that possibly be helpful in any way? Wouldn't that money have been better spent to help build homes for the homeless or feed hungry people or help reduce the cost of medication and insurance or even pay for people to stay home longer to completely eradicate Covid? The money it cost to JUST touch the moon with a spacecraft could have probably been used for all of the above for everyone around the entire world for several years. 

But there were also all those expensive test rockets from SpaceX within the last couple of years as well. A few of those tests went up in a blaze of fire as I remember. More waste! All for the sake of  "affordable" space travel. So, people might be able to travel to Mars. Really?! We are having a severe inflation crisis right now. We could use some help on the earth God actually created for us to deflect some of these rising costs.

What are your thoughts on the moon? On space waste in general?

Thanks for dropping by today. Take care and God bless you.

Let's Talk Simple!

My Simple Dream For years, I have had a simple dream of helping other women - mostly in the realm of crafting and transcribing audio and video files. As a woman who is advancing in years - and I'm proud of it - I want to expand that help in other areas. In 2020, at the height of the COVID 19 pandemic, I started www.SimplyMakingLife.com . Suddenly, women were being thrown into a world they were unfamiliar with and didn't have a clue how to handle their new life.  I, on the other hand, was well equipped to handle that type of world that had to shelter at home. I was a stay-at-home mom for over 20 years. I homeschooled both of my sons during that time - one for only a few years and the other from Kindergarten through high school. I worked from home and figured out what was important to do at the moment and what could wait. I have also taken online courses and have self-taught myself new skills along this, now, 30-year journey. I learned shortcuts in life that worked just as well a
