    Something for the Zenith fan

    I was at the Ontario Science Centre today and was happy to see Felix Baumgartner's capsule and suit from his Stratos jump. A very interesting exhibit.

    Pretty cool stuff. I've always been disappointed by how much space race has slowed down since initial achievements in the 70's.
    Wonder if more advertising money flowed towards NASA or private space exploration initiatives if things would get back on track. I don't care if it's Red Bull or Invicta doing sponsorships, but would love to see men on Mars and back on Moon soon.

    Wow. That looks sweet! It was neat to see Zenith sign up to sponsor the event.

    He wore an El Primero Stratos model. My Stratos below was given to one of the Red Bull mission directors by Zenith and is one of my favorite watches.

    Whatever the moon landing either true or false by Americans, I believe it's fake in my opinion to top out the Russians space race since Russian are planning to do it for themselves, if it is true, Surely Americans would have done Mars landing years ago, I just don't see how Nasa want to spend amount of money to do the moon landing again.

    we have the robot machine doing the sample of materials, collecting data and taking the picture on the Mars, They can do the same thing for the moon too, alot cheaper than sending the men to the moon. I assume Nasa is more interested to learned what is in the deep space rather close to the Earth with surrounding other planets which we pretty much learned most of it from last 40 years.

    My advice- buy a watch that pleases you. Don't let anyone judge or tell you what to wear. Good cheap and expensive watches are no different between them. Both still can tell the time.

    Ah man that sits beautifully on your wrist, wish I could pull of the same. I have a fascination with space and have a moonwatch but also wanted "the first watch to break the sound barrier" but at 45mm it was just too big on my wrist, i'll just have to grab a regular el primero.

    lol, seriously? 400,000 Americans and countless people from 20,000 companies around the world spent $150B in today's dollars to get to the moon. There are countless photos of landers, cars, junk, reflectors, etc. all over the moon at the various landing sites.

    Have a little faith in humanity, even if you hate the country where the people achieved it.

    You're kidding, right? Surely you realize the Russians monitored everything and tracked it all with their own radars. If there had been even a slight hint that it was faked, they would have screamed to the heavens.

    Oh... but maybe the Russians were paid off and were in on it to... LOLOL.

    Maybe you should look up the high resolution photos of the Apollo landing sites that have been taken by the Lunar Reconnaissance Orbiter over the past few years. You can even see the instrument packages left behind and the boot tracks where the astronauts walked.
