This whole moon landings thing fits into the "who cares" category. They wasted all that money getting there, then brought back a few rocks. I could go into my backyard and bring back a few rocks. The entire thing was a colossal waste of money, it achieved nothing worthwhile.
Some claim the landings never happened. Again, so what? It's just another one of these first world arguments that in the end, will prove nothing and accomplish nothing.
Now looking at it another way, America "claimed" the moon as its own, by planting the U.S. flag there. So if another country tries to take the moon, they know that America has the technology to go there and take it back. If you believe that the landings happened, of course...
