Why no more manned missions to the moon?

    I just saw an advert for that Apollo 18 movie and it led me to thinking why have there been no more missions to the moon? Apparently it is because there is nothing of value there and its costly however i do not believe this. I am usually one to laugh at conspiracy theories but i do believe there is something going on that we do not know about.

    What are your views?

    You know the expression 'been there, done that and got the t-shirt'? That's pretty much why. As you said, there's nothing worth the effort on the moon, hence why people are mainly focusing on places like Mars.

    yeah but apparently there was an Apollo 18 mission which NASA did behind the governments back.

    that's the official answer however if there is evidence to show a secret mission their answer is made void.

    no it's not, what else do they need to find out from visiting the moon that is going to cost billions of dollars, stop waffling

    I don't know if you can comprehend the whole idea of a conspiracy theory but it means that the obvious answer is believable to easily cover up for the actual answer. But OK you have stated your view. Thanks.

    yeah, i'm not too sure about this but they have to release info after 50 years right? this is big because in the last 50 years a lot more technologies have been created to find out more stuff and create more devastation.

    I don't understand at all, soon(geologically speaking) the earth will become uninhabitable (about 500my) the moon is a prime relocation candidate, comparatively easily terraformed. ultimately humans will venture to the stars (wish i was born in such a time) preparation should begin now really.
    EDIT: just adding japan are preparing for a manned mission about 2020 and ESA a manned mission to mars 2035

    hate to sound incredibly offensive but truthfully speaking when the time to leave comes not everyone will be evacuated, much less water is needed to support humanity than on earth(which makes up for most of the surface) and the moon is a far better platform to travel from (much less gravity). yes my meant million years.

    It costs too much, the same reason why they stopped the international space station. and we could learn much more from other planets than just keep sending people to the moon.

    They have never been to the moon, they can barely get there now. Think of technology back then :\

    I dont quite get your idea of a trip to the moon without the government knowing unless i have something totally wrong how are they going to launch a billion dollar rocket off the face of the earth without somebody noticing?

    for the theory about the mood landing to be fake,, take a look at this
    http://www.apfn.org/apfn/moon.htm

    scroll down near the bottom and there are pictures which 'prove' that the landing was fake
    interesting tbh
