It wasnt a hoax. use your minds, the Russians would have called us liars. They were tracking the rocket very closely . China found the 1972 moon lander last year with a satellite too.

As long as it wasn't all a big hoax, this is easily the greatest feat of engineering in human history. Maybe if the task had just been to get someone to the moon, but they even had to plan a return trip!

Sometimes digging a tunnel through a continent (even at the narrowest point) is just such a chore. Nearly 30,000 workers died in this amazing endeavor.

So nobody really knows how these were built; it doesn't make them any less impressive. Seriously, how did they do it?

This thing is pure madness; a giant (17 miles in circumference) underground donut, constructed for the purposes of blasting atoms around at insane speeds. This thing will either help scientists discover the secrets of the universe or doom us all by creating a universe-destroying quantum event. Maybe it can do both.
