[...] I’ve run the numbers and there is no way that the robots DO NOT rise up and take control. The only variable is whether they kill us all or turn us into their subservient house pets.  They can already run faster than us, are stronger than us, smarter than us, and are beginning to look and act like us.  And they are only going to get faster, stronger, and more powerful.  As technology grows, the next step only gets easier and easier to achieve. It’s the reason why our cell phones are more powerful than the computer that put a man on the moon.  [...]

[...] With the rise of high-density displays and powerful mobile processors, there are undoubtedly many “mobile” devices with larger screens, faster networks and beefier processors than many desktops from a decade ago. Today, your cellphone has more computing power than NASA did when it put a man on the moon in 1969. [...]

Funny thing is, Joseph, YOU are the one who has "drunken the kool-aide". You choose to side with the kooks who don't believe we went to the moon, and that thousands in multiple countries have kept it secret for us all this time. You choose not to believe the reflector readings, you choose not to believe the moon orbiter photos, you choose to believe the Russians and others have helped us keep our "lies" secret. Nobody said it can't be done today. In the 60's our President wanted to go to the Moon and our government put all resources to it. Now-adays not enough people care to go back. It's that simple.

Machines with computing power has no bearing on whether or not the moon landing was real. Anything that would be done on a computer today would have been entirely doable with pen and paper back then. Who do you think makes and programs computers? People.

to Joseph Dolin...I find it interesting that you are willing to believe and trust what Dr. Kaku and the rest of the scientific community has to say about computing power, but not that we landed on the moon. Why is that? You seem to be hand-picking what facts you want to believe - only those that support your insane theory that we never went to the moon. Do you really think the US gov't (or any gov't) is able to keep a secret that involves, literally, many hundreds of thousands of people to agree to it for 40+ years, including our enemies (Chinese, Soviets, etc) and people of both political parties? Why is it possible to believe we've been able to do what we've done in space as far as the space shuttle, int'l space station, etc but not the moon?

How is it that in the 1960s the US was able to pour money into the space race, fight a full scale war in Vietnam, and enact "Great Society" anti-poverty legislation all at the same time? How come we're not able to do anything anymore? The cold facts are that even with all of our computing power, we're still not able to get to the moon, control our borders, educate our children, or pay our bills.

The fact that we haven't been back to the moon is proof the lunar landing wasn't faked. We know that the moon is dead and void of resources. No reason to go back.
