And this is what happens when you listen to dumb idiots who know nothing about anything pretend to some great intellectuals. Is he somekind of astronomer, astro physicist etc etc First of all we all know lasers diverge as they travel, so by the time they reach the moon surface they are about 2 miles wide in diameter so you just have to aim in the general location, not target a tiny box on the surface of the moon like this idiot in the video says, again moon has no atmosphere so there is no dust flying around to cover them, again like the youtube idiot says. And was this idiot expecting there their would all of a sudden there would be a marching band playing with streamers and confetti everywhere after getting the return signal.Lastly u mentioned laser bouncing of moon by hitting a small reflector in moon with precision millions miles away. How do you know that is not hogwash and there is another reason for it, which may not require a reflector.
So yeah be very careful where you get your information from, tip : avoid unknow annoymous idiots with no credentials.
