Default Lunar Rover Early 70's

Here is a real puzzler or maybe not.

How did NASA get the Lunar Rover on the moon.

If at first you dont succeed,avoid skydiving...

It was taken there in kit form.

They used a book called " Build your own Lunar Rover on a Budget "

Ahh classic!

Can you imagine getting it there and finding some one had forgotten the wheel nuts? 'For the 100th time yes I have checked every thing' er Housten we have a problem...'

Go back in time and think about where they would have put it and there was nowhere to put it in kit form and how did they put it together when the gloves they used then were not pliable enough.

Genuine question and if you analyse it this could be the greatest con of all time.

It was the size of a Mini and 600kg

Seriously Paul, I have often thought " Did they or didn't they "

So many questions remain unexplained.

Why have they never been back
Why did they not build a moon base

Seems a bit daft to spend billions on an international space station that will ultimately drop out of orbit.

Surely with the advent of the space shuttle it would have been all go on a return to the moon.

Just to think, the technology that existed in the 60's was no more powerful than today's scientific pocket calculator. ?

Interesting that the Russians never showed any interest in the moon.

Doubting Thomas here, hell yes
