So, did we have or not the technology for such a feat?

Since you are apparently in France, then, no, you did not and do not have the necessary technology.

We did have the technology, and we do have it now to explore deep space...just not the will or the financing to make it happen.

Since we landed there, I say that is a resounding "YES".

Yes.

Ponder this: Nobody with a relevant degree has yet come forward, pointed to one gizmo or another, said "That couldn't possibly work!" and made a halfway convincing case.

I read an article from a NASA scientist several years ago that said we no longer have the technology. He said we would have to start over. Everything we used before is obsolete.

We now have the SLS and Orion, far superior to that used for the old moon missions. Though we are going to be running more tests on these, it is only because of how we run these programs. Testing, testing, and more testing as we push the envelope just to be sure they don't miss any problems that could arise from just going with it full bore right away. But the SLS and Orion are good to go even today in reality.
