The event, Spacefest 2007, was a three day event. Starting on Friday 17th, 2007 and ending that Sunday. It was a three day program for all flavors of space enthusiasts, from seasoned collectors to the casually interested astronomy buff. There have only been twelve astronauts who have walked on the surface of the Moon. Of these twelve, Conrad, Shepard and Irwin have left this Earth permanently. That only leaves nine living moonwalkers. Seven of the nine were at Spacefest. the two that did not attend were Harrison Schmitt Apollo 17 and the other was Neil Armstrong Apollo 11 Commander who rarely attends any public functions such as Spacefest 2007.

Any hoax believer, if they are smart, will read and view all the evidence that we did land on the Moon. If they don't want too look at any of this very convincing documentation; then move on and leave them be and know that you are the wise one. The important fact is we did land and walk on the Moon. Any educated person can look at the facts and know the truth. In the future when we return to the Moon and our future space travelers visit these historic landing sites of the Apollo era, what will they have to say to the 12 men who walked on the Moon. Probably,Nothing! By the time we return to the Moon, chances are all the Apollo astronauts who flew to the Moon will have left our world. Only 9 of the 12 Moonwalkers are living today and they are all in there mid 70's. Gene Cernan,Commander of Apollo 17, once said, "people can say and believe what they want, but I was there and the experience defies description and no one can take that away from me." Years later, Gene Cernan, Apollo 17 Commander writes, "How can you relate to what it is like to look back a quarter of a million miles at the overwhelming beauty and majesty of our plant from the Moon. It's an incredible, incredible 
experience. I like to think that it overwhelmed me. You could literally see from pole to pole, ocean to ocean, across continents. It is alive; you could watch the world mysteriously and very majestically turn on an unseen axis, and see that there were no strings holding it up. Three-dimensionally, within the endlessness of time, within the endlessness of space, was the Earth, A beautiful blue marble, dominated by the blue of the ocean and the white of the clouds. I can't show it to you, I can't hold it or put it on a screen, but I can tell you that the endlessness of space and time does exist, because I saw it with my own eyes. Try and comprehend the spirit, the sense, the felling of what that is like; just really let your imagination really go way out there. The time came when I had to ask myself if I truly realized where I was at that moment in space and time. I felt that I was at a point in my life where science had met its match." 

On the final Apollo Mission Gene Cernan, Apollo 17, stood at the foot of the Lunar Module's ladder preparing to leave the Moon and said, "As I take man's last step"  - he almost gasped - "from the surface" -- he fought to get his breath -- "And as we leave the Moon at Taurus-Littrow, we leave as we came, and, God willing, as we shall return, with peace and hope for all mankind."  
 
Destiny is not a matter of chance. It is a matter of choice. It's not a thing to be waited for; it is a thing to be achieved. 
-- William Jennings Bryan

"I believe this nation should commit itself to achieving the goal, before this decade is out, of landing a man on the Moon and returning him safely to Earth. No single space project in this period will be more impressive to mankind, or more important in the long-range exploration of space; and none will be so difficult or expensive to accomplish."
