Default Apollo Moon Landings - explain the Technology

can somebody explain to me exactly what technology was supposedly used to bring man to the moon and back ?

i don't want to listen to either the conspiracists or the debunkers on this subject because they will both use kindergarten argumentation with no actual science at any point entering the equation.

getting to space and back is easy. just shoot the capsule and it falls back. it can parachute or it can glide down - same difference. bottom line is it requires no energy to get back.

now if you're going to the moon first of all you can't parachute or glide to the moon - there is no air. you will need additional energy just to make sure you don't slam into it vaporizing yourself on contact.

and then you need more energy to escape the moon's gravitation. now it may only be 1/6th of earth's but that's still a ******** of energy ! where would it come from ?

i want to see the pictures of the equipment that supposedly accomplished all this.

Isaac Asimov wrote a very good book explaining in simple terms how all this stuff is possible.

Gravity, Escape Velocity, Mass, Potential and Kinetic Energy etc etc.

Worth a read, if it is still in print .

Ummm, there are quite a few pictures of Apollo, LEM, and Saturn available.

Let me get this straight, you wanted to get a doctorate in engineering?

Moon Fact Sheet

Potential energy - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

so energy to escape gravitational field:

G*M*M/R

where:

M(moon) = 0.012

R(moon) = 0.27

so energy to escape moon = 0.0444... that of earth.

only you have to do it TWICE. first when you land on the moon and then when you take off so 0.0444 x 2 so 0.09

so it would take roughly about 1/10th as much energy to land the lunar module and get it back up from the moon as it would to get it into space in the first place.

show me where that energy was stored.

OT and in reference to your other thread.

Abandon engineering or in fact anything that requires research, evidence and science.

well i never cared about the moon c4ap until i heard all the talk about faking it. this is the first time i am looking at it. before i look at any arguments of the conspiracists i want to first make sure that the official story line doesn't contradict physics.

since i grew up in Soviet Union i hope you can understand why we didn't care about your stinky American moon

Despite the propensity to actually de-evolve where energy storage is concerned (latest run-your-car-on-battery power trend) there is the storage potential of liquid fuel. Don't underrate how much energy is released during its combustion.

You're not helping. Feel free to excuse yourself.

perhaps you can briefly summarize the relevant parts here ?
