    What might have happened if the USSR landed on the moon?

    What might have happened if the USSR rather than the USA landed on the Moon in July 1969? Given that Yuri Gagarin and Valentina Tereshkova were the first man and woman respectively to go into space and that in 1969, America was also deeply divided due to the Vietnam War, the so-called...

    Who was he? A philosopher's view on the shadow of the moon and sunlight?

    I remember I was once told or I once read that a certain Greek philosopher in ancient Greece once stated that the shadow on the moon was as result of sunlight. He was eventually killed for that. I am not sure whether it was a myth or actual history, but I am going to investigate it. I think his...

    Symbolism of the crescent moon

    I've been looking for the meaning or symbolism of the image of crescent moon, but all the sites I've found yet only talk about WHO used the symbol, but not WHY. Apparently the symbol's been used as early as around 2300BC with Akkadians, and a lot of ancient nations have used it, as the moon...

    US loses the moon race

    What would have happened if the US lost the moon race? Two losing scenarios: (1) Delays put the first landing in 1975 and there are no follow-up missions. (2) The Soviets succeed in 1969 while the US is still struggling with various problems. I'm curious, because the Apollo program was very...

    Moon Hoaxers: Why do they exist?

    I'm tying to understand how the conspiracy theory that the moon landings were hoaxed endures. It isn't unique in being a conspiracy theory that requires completing suspending critical thinking, but it is somewhat unique in that requires ignoring that 500,000 people were involved with the...

    Nazis escaped to a secret base in Antarctica in 1945

    This is one of the more entertaining (and far fetched) conspiracy theories I've come across. According to the story, German submarines made a last ditch effort to save the failing Third Reich in May 1945, secretly escaping from their harbours in the North Sea and slipping away with top Nazi...

    So I recently started reading the book Red Moon Rising: Sputnik and the Hidden Rivalries That Ignited the Space Age. It's an interesting look at the Cold War era after WW2 when both the US and Russia were trying to power-play each other for world supremacy by becoming the first to reach space...

    Moon VS Oceans
