    Makes things much easier when you do not need to send rays in almost 50% of sphere as they went with "star-less" sky. Which is quite accurate on Sun lit surface of Moon as it is too bright in comparison to stars/galaxies in sky.

    There was no "controversy" over the moon landing. It was only later that idiot conspiracy theorists started saying it was all fake.

    Quite interesting that Hollywood (First Man) and now Nvidia is trying to prove their fakery. Let's be real, we never left low Earths Orbit let alone went to Moon. I cannot go into technical details why it was impossible then and still not possible however that is about to change with the technological advancement in the past 10 years. Hopefully we reach Moon and Mars in the next 30 - 40 years which is the most realistic prediction.

    One of the reasons why we didn't go to Moon yet is Radiation among many other things. When you go to Hospital to take an X Ray, everyone run out of room to hide and protect themselves from the Radiation. An equipment and Astronauts are exposed to such Radiation in the Space, that number is staggering and yet we they went there in a space ship with tinfoil made Ship...give me a break. It is easy to send space ships, rovers, satellites to visit another planets and kudos to them for doing so but sending human out there is whole another ball game we are about to tap into...as I said in 30-40 years realistically.

    Do you know what is an official NASA explanation for this? Oh we don't have technology or we destroyed technology they used to land on the Moon...huh? What kinds of an explanation is that...we must have been more advanced back in 1969 then now...never heard that technology advancement goes backwards.

    It was quite possible back in the day. Issue is survival of crew long enough to get back irradiated and die back on Earth.
    I'd say that in worst case scenario Armstrong's team went to orbit and another team finished Moon mission. (This is possibility, but let's be honest... Nobody else was there to confirm/disprove :D )

    Apparently someone got to Moon and left HW there. That's something nobody should try to disprove.

    A very nice demo, it's good that Nvidia is introducing this technology.
    BUT...
    I can imagine that Entizias will buy 2080 Ti for 1200 $ but I can not imagine that someone from the 4k@60fps monitor or 21: 9@100fps will return to full HD.

    Tired of seeing nvidia demos that we can't try ourselves. When are they going to publicly release those Ray tracing and dlss demos? It's getting weird. Reviewers can use them but we can't.

    Are reviewers able to use them? I didn't know anybody could get their hands on them. But otherwise I would agree. Assuming these are actually rendering in realtime, why not have a standalone executable? There doesn't have to be any configuration settings, you just run it and watch, maybe with a keyboard shortcut to view FPS or whatever.

    Of course you can't, because there's no details about it being impossible then or now. You should be ashamed of yourself.

    You should be ashamed of yourself as well. Not as much as the above guy, but ALMOST.

    This was a VXGI demo originally? Would be cool to see A/B tests image quality/accuracy between the two methods along with performance.

    I look forward to your published research on this subject, as you're clearly not just a google "researcher" and definitely have some physics degrees to your name... /s

    It amazes me that some people still think the moon landing was faked; probably the same people who think the earth is flat. :sadtrombone:

    There is no proof either way. It is similar to "magic" tricks. Unless you say STOP and dissect it in progress, you can't prove it was trick or magic afterwards.
    Therefore me saying that possibility exists is same as saying that: "there is change that God exists, it is just pretty slim".

    I understand that uncertainty may be frightening for you, but almost nothing is certain in this world.

    I know the true story behind the fake moon landings and it's all NASA's fault. The problem was that they did have a fake set to use for creating footage and training if the real footage was not able to survive the radiation and that's what happened.

    So they did go to the moon but they used some CGI/Fake Set and some real footage and that's where the conspiracy started to appear. They should of just come clean and said some of the footage is made up and some of it is real. That little lie or incorrect information left out made many think the whole thing was fake.

    CGI? You do realize the lunacy (pun intended) of that, right? CGI didn't exist back then.

    OK CGI might not be the correct term in this case but fake footage from a fake set was used.

    Wrong.

    You sir, are a moron.


    "I cannot go into technical details" - that's because you're a dimwit. Oh I understand this, but I cannot explain it to you. What utter trash you are talking. You don't even realise how stupid you sound and how transparent your ill-informed, uneducated opinion is.

    None of your arguments are valid. Fact.


    The earth is flat, air doesn't exist because we can't see it, wind too, oh and hydrogen cannot possibly make up part of water. Right?

    Get a fucking grip.
