Telescopes Can See Everything

Out of necessity, the lunar missions were carried out very efficiently. Any dead weight was quickly removed to keep the Moon rocket within the operational limits of its design; thus, defining the principle of rocket staging. Once a stage’s fuel tanks were emptied, they were dropped or left behind (rockets are really nothing more than huge fuel tanks with an engine connected at the bottom). This method is still used today by all space-faring nations and, for technical and financial reasons, there are no realistic alternatives to it. The situation is the exact same on the Moon: the descent stage of the Lunar Module, including its engine and tanks, was left behind as it was used as a launch pad for the rest of the vehicle’s return to Earth, and remains there today on the surface of the Moon. The descent stage with the four projecting spider legs has a diagonal diameter of 9 meters (29.5 feet). The argument is now this: Humankind has used their telescopes to observe galaxies millions of lightyears away; therefore, the lunar descent stage should be easily observable on the Moon with a telescope. However, not a single astronomer has been able to provide a picture of it so far. Consequently, the descent stage must not actually be on the Moon, and the whole story is a lie.
