Faking a moon landing is hard

"Did people go to the Moon in 1969? I'm not totally sure. I wasn't on the Moon then. Did they fake going to the Moon? No, I'm pretty sure they didn't, because they couldn't." -- Amsterdam based movie maker S. G. Collins explains why the movie, tv and video technology of 1969 make the moon landing having been faked highly unlikely (slyt).

Why does Rice play Texas?

That's one small step for a man, one giant leap for mankind. [Audio] On 21 July 1969, four days after taking off from Cape Canaveral, and six and a half hours after landing Apollo 11 on the Sea of Tranquility, Neil Armstrong became the first human to step foot on the moon.

Without a doubt, the moon landing is one of the greatest accomplishments of mankind. For those who were alive thirty-seven years ago, the sight of Armstrong’s “small step” is one of the most iconic images of their lifetime.

NASA Challenges Moon Hoax Conspiracy

NASA Challenges Moon Hoax Conspiracy After decades of almost ignoring claims that the Apollo missions were hoaxed, NASA commissioned aerospace writer James Olberg to write an official rebuttle. Perhaps a bit more reasonable than the NASA Stooge, the book is aimed at the general public.

Buzz Aldrin punches moon conspiracy theorist

Buzz Aldrin punches moon conspiracy theorist - Light on content but loaded up with a snappy title, this headline had me rolling. I can only imagine how 33 years of 'conspiracy theorists' could play on your nerves. If only there were places I could keep track of celebrities who loose it.

Conspiracy or not?

Conspiracy or not? Convinced to sit and watch FOX's show on whether we landed on the moon, I found myself wondering why there was no evidence against the hoax presented. Is this is clearly another feed on the conspiracy theories surrounding JFK's administration? Or was it just another "When cars attack?" (If so, I didn't find this as funny)

Some people still believe that the Moon landings were faked.

Some people still believe that the Moon landings were faked. Some actually believe an even more disturbing scenario: that in fact a "World Government" has secretly colonized the Moon and Mars. This is the premise of the "Alternative Three" conspiracy theory. Interestingly enough, the "documentary" that spawned this theory was admittedly a hoax (Copyright April 1, 1977), and so was the book that followed it. However, it seems that even the author has been having a hard time convincing believers that it was indeed a hoax. Well, why don't you see for yourself?
