Don't tell that to Buzz Aldrin.

See, the problem with this site is that those photos are taken from different missions.

The so-called 'astronaut' holding that basket only has four fingers! I can't believe the person who compiled this evidence didn't notice that!

And everybody knows that moon mice are green.

Moon mice? What are you talking about?

Did Metafilter fake an old "moon landing" post? Conclusive proof! (But you're excused, glenwood, since he moved the URL, and I'd been wondering where it went.)

Consarnit! I seriously bent over backwards searching for this thing.

poop. Well, revisiting something 4 years old isn't SO redundant, I suppose.

Very convincing, but everyone knows that the whole moon landing went through the black and white filter that exists outside of the earth's atmosphere, so it should have been in black and white, even though they brought color film.

Other proof the color filter that was placed around the earth started just before that is here: The world is a complicated place

As long as we're revisiting:

Heheh. Nice link Crash. It's what I would have sounded like.

That's totally what I sound like in real life -- beeps and all.

I want to know what that astronaut was shopping for.

They only did it because Brazil got there first.

Naw, it turns out the Chinese made it to the moon back around 1685. But it was hard to make sense of their records of the voyage, because they were all, you know, in Chinese.

I this.

Secondly, the interior of the shopping basket can clearly be seen when all areas in shadow should be pitch black due to the absence of air molecules.

Yeah but their not taking into account reflections of the surrounding materials. I mean, I agree with them for the most part, but slipups like this undermine their credibility.
