I was reading today that, in research published in The Astrophysical Journal, molecular oxygen has been discovered in the Markarian 231 galaxy, 561 million light-years from Earth. A light-year, which measures distance in space, equals about 6 trillion miles.
So that's something 561 million x 6 trillion miles away. Good luck getting Excel to calculate that!!
And yet we can't photograph the Apollo landing equipment 243,000 miles away.
This isn't a "moon landings were faked" troll, just an observation that you can see why people may think that way.
Why is it that we can better observe this far-away oxygen than stuff nearby on the surface of the Moon?
