I understand that,not sure how it would relate to a persons anger levels/chance of violence though.

No. It was filmed in a studio in Burbank, California. Why else did they make that film, Capricorn 1?

That’s the one l.c.

Just ordered a couple of his books- ‘What are you Looking At?’ and ‘Did You Spill My Pint?’.

If you haven't seen Idiocracy then I seriously suggest you track it down and watch it. Very funny but scarily accurate in places.

Yep, I'm a pacifist, but that was a well-deserved (and pretty tasty) end to the discussion! :thup:

Me - I'm open to all conspiracy theories so it's a No from me .

Jennie on the other hand studied Astronomy as part of her Degree says - Yes .


The question I always ask is ' Why don't they go there any more now technology is at its very best ' .

$$$$$$$$$$$$. It's been done, but exploration to the outer reaches of space, Mars rover missions, etc, etc, were the new frontiers to get to, manned or un-manned.

Apparantly, they're aiming to go back to the moon in 2024 :thup:

think I have heard/read that there's more technology in an I phone than what got them to the moon and back..

https://www.zmescience.com/research/tec ... pollo-432/" onclick="window.open(this.href);return false;

Your smartphone is millions of times more powerful than all of NASA’s combined computing in 1969

(if that's what your article said, it was a bit too complex for me to understand)

:D

A POCKET CALCULATOR HAS MORE COMPUTING POWER THAN THE COMPUTERS WE USED FOR THE MOON MISSION

The iPhone 6 uses an Apple-designed 64 bit Cortex A8 ARM architecture composed of approximately 1.6 billion transistors. It operates at 1.4 GHZ and can process instructions at a rate of approximately 1.2 instructions every cycle in each of its 2 cores. That’s 3.36 billion instructions per second. Put simply, the iPhone 6’s clock is 32,600 times faster than the best Apollo era computers and could perform instructions 120,000,000 times faster. You wouldn’t be wrong in saying an iPhone could be used to guide 120,000,000 Apollo era spacecraft to the moon, all at the same time.
