“NASA’s Orion will combine vintage tech with massive advances in computing power and electronics we’ve made since 1972.”

NASA’s Lunar Outpost will Extend Human Presence in Deep Space

“As NASA sets its sights on returning to the Moon, and preparing for Mars, the agency is developing new opportunities in lunar orbit to provide the foundation for human exploration deeper into the solar system.”

NASA’s First Flight With Crew Important Step on Long-term Return to the Moon, Missions to Mars

“Astronauts on their first flight aboard NASA’s Orion spacecraft will travel farther into the solar system than humanity has ever traveled before. Their mission will be to confirm all of the spacecraft’s systems operate as designed in the actual environment of deep space with crew aboard.”

The path to the moon traced a dangerous line of risk and reward. In a race against time, the Apollo Program challenged our scientific capabilities and redefined the boundaries of humanity. To celebrate NASA’s 60 years of exploration, Seeker is going back in time to relive each Apollo mission, taking viewers on a ride to an entirely new world.

Seeker explains every aspect of our world through a lens of science, inspiring a new generation of curious minds who want to know how today’s discoveries in science, math, engineering and technology are impacting our lives and shaping our future.

There's a simple reason, a return to the moon has been perpetually ten years in the future. Because they have to cover for their original lie, that the Apollo missions successfully landed on the moon. They still can't send a manned mission through the VARB today.

We use the 'accomplishment' of landing men on the moon to puff ourselves up about American exceptionalism and the genius of science, but we were told lies. The evidence of the fraud is abundant, if you have the ability to examine the subject with an open mind.

Of course, we've been trained, by a CIA controlled media to turn off our brains when the word "conspiracy theory" is used. They didn't like people questioning the findings of the Warren commission investigation into the murder of JFK. So they started a very successful campaign to turn "conspiracy theory" into an object of ridicule. Now, you hear "conspiracy theory" and click, you turn off critical thinking, dismiss whatever evidence is presented.

If we want to return to the forefront of space exploration, we need an ambitious leader like jfk and a worthy rival like the soviets were, necessary evils to push us to our fullest potential as a nation. Just watch, if China or someone else starts making leaps in space exploration then the us will rise to the occasion to compete. Or maybe the competition will come from the inside, from the likes of spacex

But NASA destroyed all that technology……. so funny how much we're questioning all aspects of there reality of lies…… and all of a sudden NASA has the technology again to go back……. how ironic sheep…. oh yea first footage all lost….so wierd……..

Get ready for all that CGI……

Does anybody know which designs word inspired model or created after other countries and which ones were imagine modeled and created solely off of American aspirations?cuz as I hear more and more about the space program between NASA and SpaceX I'm noticing a lot of the designs were inspired by Russian scientist that was deemed called by Americans prior like the multi engine system.what I'm seeing more and more of American scientists boasting they created they created they created leading want to believe that that design was created by then wholeheartedly. Hence the question….

They were never on the moon to begin with.

everyone says why don't we see stars but when i make a photo with my iphone 6 i can't see starts either, and that was 1960 so for those dumb fucks here u go

Terry Neal March 1, 2019 - 8:11 PM

Return? hahahahahahaha

Michael John Little March 2, 2019 - 5:26 AM

It also requires excellent inspirational leadership, which it had in the 60's and the 70s; but with Trump it is very much lacking…

Fyffestar Avali March 4, 2019 - 9:17 PM

I loved this. This was very informative. I learned soooo much. Thank you Seeker! All the way from Jamaica!

I know what a gram is but what is the mass of an elephant. Which elephant ?

Ran Dom Joe March 8, 2019 - 11:17 PM

nasa always makes everything looks so complicated and complex, thank god we have elon musk.

Andrew Armstrong March 11, 2019 - 1:48 PM

If it wasn't for wasting trillions of dollars in the jungle and the desert we would already have a space station circulating Jupiter. That's the problem with musical chairs, you never know what seat you are going to get and you never know what administration or congress you will get. The next group could just as easily flip the switch off like Nixon and later Obama did.

Manuel Cabrera March 12, 2019 - 8:30 AM

I think that was a great series! Great job seeker. Maybe the next series can be on honoring the late Stephan Hawking and his contributions to science.

Doom Father TM March 13, 2019 - 3:34 AM

So we apparently got to the moon so easy starting from scratch in the 60's yet we are no where near being able to do it in 2019 with already existing tech and much better tech. What a croc

TS_Diamond March 21, 2019 - 7:16 AM

who thinks this; the first mars landing will be like 1969 with the first lunar landing all over again. truly spectacular. only got 6 more years or so and nasa (or spacex) plan on sending a manned mission to mars. can't wait.

757Dawg March 27, 2019 - 3:11 AM

To return somewhere you would have to have already been there.

Fat Roberto March 28, 2019 - 9:01 PM

It's barbaric. Elephants need oxygen just as much as we do.

Pete Will March 29, 2019 - 10:09 AM

So let's get this right. NASA's challenge today is the same challenge they faced 50 plus years ago.

Gumpy Flyale March 29, 2019 - 10:04 PM

Allegedly went to the moon

Can someone call Hollywood an tell them nasa is coming over with there-flags( again)

she'd rather say 'crude' than 'manned'. Silly feminist.

NASA going back to the moon…thought you would off had to land in the first place.

Gucci April 17, 2019 - 2:27 AM

Why can’t they just send astronauts using space ex? At least the rockets will be reusable.

Plant Franklin April 18, 2019 - 3:14 AM

So their coming out with a sequel

Radek Zielinski May 15, 2019 - 3:38 AM

Just think about, if we live on the moon and build factories there we won't pollute anything. Moon has no atmosphere so CO2 emmisions won't matter, nor we will kill any wild life since moon is just a massive rock. The only thing is… it has quite a lot of craters for some odd reason.

Great video 👍🏻🇺🇸🚀

Moon is a self luminating translucent disk not opaque spherical terrafirma reflecting sunlight as you've been told and shown in fake NASA videos.
Do you know why the first thing we learn is that the Earth is a globe?
They want us programmed with that information before we learn how to ask a question.
The North Star never moves and the constellation have never changed ever. Bodies of water always seek and find level. Horizon always at eye level is only possible on a flat plane. The earth is not a spinning globe.
Search for the truth.

where is earlier presenter.. she was cute. this one ugly….

we the people pad for Apollo 18 and 19. at a high cost they were built, the most expensive part of our space program, and now on display by NASA!! they will not tell us the real reason why Apollo 18 did not fly?

NASA is building a massive roller coaster tall enough to get to the moon!!!!! Doable.

Excellent series …..

Why don't they tell the public the truth👨🏿‍🚀😳😱

Being underfunded every year will cause a project to be over budgeted from the get-go if the funding isn't matched

I believe these engine should be reused . step by step reused must plan-implemented

I swear if this just decided to get canceled I’m gunna kill someone

Ask yourself how an "air conditioner" can work in a vacuum, and you will have "solved" the mystery of the "Moon Landings"!

rick4electric December 9, 2020 - 11:36 PM

Why would NASA give out petrified wood as souvenirs to foreign governments if we really went to the Moon?

rick4electric December 9, 2020 - 11:40 PM

NASA announced that the REASON that we haven't gone to the Moon in 50 years is because we "lost" the technology! At the same time they revealed that they "lost" all the telemetry from the Moon program as well! That means that there is NO PROOF that we ever put Men on the Moon in the first place!

rick4electric December 9, 2020 - 11:52 PM

If you check out the specifications of the Moon Landings you would soon find that the numbers just don't add up! Think about it! Oxygen, food and water, fuel reserves compared to the weight and lift required to go to the Moon don't make any sense! Werner von Braun told us what would be required in 1952! It would require a space launch platform in Earths orbit for fueling an Empire State Building sized rocket just to get to the Moon without landing! Then another space platform going around the Moon to land and get back home again! A manned mission does NOT have the same requirements as a reconnaissance satellite or Moon rover! Robotic Men will land on foreign worlds WAY before real men ever will!

Do you recognize a HOAX when you see one?
