Con

is landing on moon real or not
Multi_Pyrocytophage

Pro

I accept this debate. My opponent has not assumed positions, therefore, I shall do so.

Con must prove that landing on the moon is not real. I assume this since the title of this debate is landing on moon, and he is con, which means he believes that landing on the moon is not real.

I, Pro, must prove that landing on the moon is in fact real.

My opponent has not specified how the rounds will go. I will assume that this first round is for acceptance.

With that, I hand over the next round to my opponent.

Pro

I have to prove that landing on the moon is real. If that is the case, I only have to prove ONE instance of when something landed on the moon to win this debate.

It should be noted, however, that my opponent has never specified if we humans landed on the moon or if one of our spacecraft landed on the moon. Thus, either should apply.

I. Luna 2, Luna 17, and Luna 21

These robotic spacecraft were launched by the Soviet Union. They all sucessfully reached the moon. Luna 2 was the first manmade object to ever have reached the moon. In addition, Luna 17 and 21 landed on the moon, as well as having vehicles travel across the moon's surface to collect data.

II. Look at the picture below



This picture here indicates different Luna spacecraft landing on various different locations on the moon. Not only that, it shows other spacecraft launched by other countries landing on the moon. Con will have to rebut every single location on here in order to win.

III. Apollo 11 mission.

The Apollo 11 group was the first group that ever landed humans on the moon. These humans were Neil Armstrong and Buzz Aldrin, and they landed at July 20, 1969, 20:17:39, in standard UTC (2). I do not feel further argumentation is necessary, since I am sure most readers here will possibly be familiar with Apollo 11 and definitely familiar with Neil Armstrong. I am sure all of you have heard this quote: "That's one small step for a man, but one giant leap for mankind." as quoted by Armstrong.

Conclusion

I have proved various instances where humans have landed spacecraft (whether humans were on it or not). In addition, even if Con can rebut some of these points, he must rebut EVERY SINGLE point listed, otherwise, I should get the win.

Anyhow, I hope Con is able to respond in time for the next round.

Looks like the link didn't work properly. Anyways, the picture is in source 1, about the Luna programme.

Reasons for voting decision: Conduct goes to pro for con's forfeit. Spelling and grammar goes to pro for obvious reasons. Convincing arguments goes to pro because he actually made one, and thus sources go to pro because he provided them
