1975 Conversations and Morning Walks

Yes.
Morning Walk -- June 2, 1975, Honolulu:

Devotee (3): Prabhupāda, when they said they went to the moon and they showed films of them landing and walking on the moon, was this all a bluff?

Prabhupāda: Yes, here they... All laboratory work, that's all.

Devotee (3): They all made it up?

Prabhupāda: Yes.

Bali-mardana: Prabhupāda, they are not going to go to Venus. The American and Russian, they are just going to meet outside the earth. They are not going to any planet.

Prabhupāda: Oh, that is finished.

Bali-mardana: It is too difficult.

Ambarīṣa: They're going to meet in space and float around in space.

Prabhupāda: That is birds are doing also. What is the credit?

Paramahaṁsa: They are thinking that "What is the use of going to any other planet, because there is no life on the other planets."

Prabhupāda: Why no life?

Paramahaṁsa: Well, they have photographs and things.

Prabhupāda: Photograph, what is this nonsense photograph? How long it can go up?

Ambarīṣa: They're taken from hundreds of miles up in space, and then they say there is no life.

Prabhupāda: What is hundreds of miles? It is, er, forty billion, what is that?

Paramahaṁsa: Four billion.

Prabhupāda: Four billion. So how they can calculate?

Paramahaṁsa: If they took a photograph of the earth planet from up in space, they would probably also say there is no life.

Prabhupāda: Yes.

Devotee (3): They say because the atmosphere is not like this planet, others cannot live there.

Prabhupāda: Why not atmosphere? The moon planet, there is a planet. There is space. There is surface. There is dust. So why not atmosphere the same? It is made of the same ingredients, earth, water, fire. Why do you say that is not same atmosphere?

Devotee (3): They are saying that it's too cold or too hot.

Prabhupāda: That's all right. That is here also. There are many cold places. Do they think that in the cold places there is no life? All nonsense. And only nonsense will believe them. I never believed it. Why? Here we see under this sand there is life. The crabs, what is called? They live within, so many hundreds of thousands. We have seen on the sand.
