Another witness bits the dust now all they have to do is wait for the tv viewers who watched the Apollo missions die too.
RIP, Gene. Perhaps you can do more on the Other Side…
I have walked in front of the PRODUCTION Saturn 5 at the Cape Canaveral museum. It was supposed to be Apollo 18 or 19. (Another PRODUCTION Saturn 5 is at the NASA Houston museum. Both flight-worthy.) As an aerospace engineer, I was enraged gazing-up at the waste of everything that had been built-up to that point.
Not only did Gene just die, but all of the Apollo engineering/technical talent has been slowly dying off. RIP, American know-how. [email protected] you.
Sad to hear. Would be nice to actually know the real story behind it all. Not many of those brave men left alive to tell it. It takes a special kind of nerve to sit atop a controlled explosion, ride it into space, and then journey to another world in what amounts to a tin can, while wondering if you would ever make it back to tell the tale.
I struggle to put this in English. Cernan as “the last man to walk on the Moon” is an incredibly sad statement. If the official story is to believed, after Apollo 17, mankind gave up on the idea of physical exploration and scientific study of the Moon.
I lived through the era, and no matter how much I review it, it makes no sense. If only we could learn what has been occulted in the name of some nation’s national security…
There was a race to plant a flag of ownership on the ultimate high ground. Once we got our flag of declaration on the Moon before the Ruskies by an American explorer there was no need until it becomes necessary. The entire Moon is US territory so China be warned!
Besides, we probably did secretly plant surveillance, emergency wartime communications, and deffence platforms on our new US territory the Moon.
