    It was briefly.

    Looking at the run up he was sure that there would be an issue so you COULD read that tweet as partial relief or its just easy to type and sounds cooler then the full explanation would be.

    Sounds like that one, but really many who follow it and would have read it would know the difference and not need such 'dumbing down'

    Well for a short time yes. If it was in orbit around Earth why is it now flying towards the asteroid belt?

    Excellent game if you're the type who likes a technical space game with a bit of fun thrown in. Not one for you if you generally cant be bothered reading the manual or doing tutorials.

    In other words it looks so fake, because it is fake.

    Probably in response to the comments on his posts about that flat earth (mostly "suck it flat earthers" type posts or the odd "it looks CGI so show the real pictures showing a flat earth" comments).....but lets not go there again.

    Never reached the peaks of the Beatles stuff but he certainly has some classics of his own.

    Are we talking about sex in space?

    Sorry, I was just about to put a post together about the impracticalities of sex in space and deleted it because it got a bit far away from what would be allowed.

    No - flat earth!

    Yes when it comes to something of this magnitude I do.

    Like I would expect the telemetry data from the Apollo missions to have been preserved, you know as it was such an historic moment.

    How many people out of 7 billion think about telemetry data from the apollo missions?
    And what about the soviets?

    You know what you are 100% correct...why keep it like. Totally meaningless.

    What could possibly be gained from keeping it?

    Yeah.

    Like I said though, who would want to keep hold of such items really?

    Meaningless stuff so no loss.

    From the NASA report summary...

    Over the ensuing years,
    Goddard recalled them and either reused the one-inch tapes to meel a network
    shortage in the early 1980s or disposed of them because of the high cost of storing
    them
    . At no time did anyone recognize the unique content on roughly 45 tapes
    containing the actual moonwalk video

    I think this is a perfectly reasonable thing to do with the tapes either a) record over them or b) dispose of them due to the cost of storing them...after all it was only the moon walk itself.

    I mean I always used to tape over my cassettes, who didn't?
