Nah, they just said they did. But they didn't. Or they would have had bases there already, as the next logical step to take in order to be on top again. But they quit while we were ahead, and then so did we.

Kirk thinks you're interesting,,, | AND YET THE US HAS NO BASES ON THE MOON EITHER, AND HAS BEEN UNABLE TO RETURN SINCE THE LANDINGS | image tagged in kirk thinks you're interesting   | made w/ Imgflip meme maker
NASA - get this - LOST the blueprints for the Saturn V!!!

Played with the Shuttle for decades, doing nothing but experiments on how fruit flies develop abnormally in no grav and such. Wasted time on the low orbit International Space Station. All this prepping us to do one day what we already did 50 years ago but strangely can't now.

Odd, huh?

Not trying to sound too conspiracy-ish, but make a Saturn VI and get back there already.

Nah, they didn't lose the blueprints. They decided there was no reason to go back to the moon because there was no Soviet Threat and no one to race against. The 70's was a time of gas crunches, high inflation and taxes and low employment. The people just didn't want to pay for the moon bases. And when Congress cut off NASA funding for moon missions, there was no reason to keep the hundreds of thousands of people across the country that build the individual components for the S-5 boosters employed, so they all went on to bigger and better things, or retired altogether. In either case, what that meant was, a brain drain. No one was left that knew how to build the things. Once the Shuttle program began in the mid to late 70's, everyone had space station on the brain, no one wanted to go to the Moon anymore, that was "So Last Decade".
The Orion booster is a direct descendant of the S-5 boosters, with a lot of modern upgrades learned form the shuttle program and other sources. But the bones are still there.

I wasn't joking.

Brain drain is irrelevent when you have the blueprints.

The rest you said, shuttle, space station, etc, contradicts your thesis.

Technically the Nazis had the technology and we got access to it through Operation Paperclip. Wernher von Braun said when the first V2 hit London that his rocket was successful, it just landed on the wrong planet. He finally got to get one to the moon.
