    No telescope can resolve human activity on the moon from Earth. The shots of tracks are taken from other space craft

    Yeah, we know that. Your point is?

    I’d come to the conclusion years ago that it was fake. You only have to take into account the technology being used today by other countries to even attempt to get to the moon to know it wasn’t possible.

    It’s just typical US Cold War propaganda. I am wondering though what they’ll say when some ACTUALLY gets there and finds no evidence – or will the CIA spend the next 100 years in covert ops to sabotage these attempts….

    Fake you say… without the space program we wouldn’t have Velco. I have some Velcro therefore man has been to the moon.

    I rest my case.

    So, who, exactly, is trying to get to the Moon?
    Answer – Nobody
    Why? Because we know it’s a waste of time and that there’s little of interest there
    How do we know this…….?
    I’ll let you work that out.

    OF COURSE IT WAS/IS POSSIBLE YOU HALFWIT!

    Sheesh!

    There’s three very good reasons why we know it’s not faked.

    1) It would’ve been harder to fake to the degree they did than to just go there. How many other movie special effects from 1969 stand up today?

    2) We left stuff behind! We can see it, today. There’s even a big mirror that we use to bounce lasers off.

    3) The most compelling of all, if it were faked, the Russians would have gone “er, excuse me…”

    Do you really think, in the great Space Race, the US would have got away with saying to the soviets, “well, we did it. No, really, look, we filmed it and everything. No no, don’t bother looking up, trust us.”

    Most – nay, all – of the conspiracy theories are easily debunked, and are borne out of the same intellectually challenged logic that gave us Creationism; to wit, “I don’t understand it, so it can’t be true.”

    The breadknife and I watched that programme and it almost had her believe it was faked, then she was only 9 at the time. I stayed up that night and watched it, the Aussies actually got to hear the walk bit first as I remember, it would have been kind of difficult to fool them.

    The bit of film that always got me was the hammer and feather drop filmed in a later mission again not an easy thing to fake and why do it anyway, what would have been the point?

    It was a very different world back in ’69 we’d even won the world cup not long since, so anything seemed possible.

    Even North Korea managed to get stuff into orbit.

    Okay, maybe if no-one had managed to achieve orbit before, and the US suddenly announced they’d been to the moon, it would be suspicious. But that’s not what happened. Do you think the Gemini missions were faked too? What about Lunkhod? There were hundreds of launches, by both countries, building up to Apollo, and spending colossal amounts of money to do it.

    I never said that.

    And to address the velcro comment – how do you keep the worlds biggest secret yet market its lies? Well, you ensure that that majority believe its true, by actually spending £40bn dollars with an element of realisim. Like war, things like this generate technology advances – although of course if you find some Velcro on the moon I’ll eat my words.

    Your missing a point – even todays Space shuttles don’t go through the radiation barrier – only the manned Apollo mission have claimed to do it. In fact, no person has been through there except the alledged moonwalkers, before, during or since. Do you really think the rest of the world said “Duh, they’ve done it now, I can’t be assed”?

    The russians never landed on the moon – they sent an unmanned craft.

    Sigh. Of course you can, I never claimed there weren’t any broken ones. However there have been and are plenty riding around on OK Hope 2’s and have been for years. So “…all Hope Pro 2’s are shi*te…” is an inaccurate unmeasured generisism on your part.

    I go back to my standard position:
    They could not keep a blow job in the white house a secret, is it really possible that hoaxed moon landings havent produced some evidence? Where is the evidence?

    There is plenty of evidence of people going to the moon, all the teams involved, all the tracking by radio, the pictures taken for the sattelites, the tv signal, etc etc

    Kryton57: proving bencooper right.

    Do you really think the rest of the world said “Duh, they’ve done it now, I can’t be assed”?

    It was all political point-scoring and willy-waving.

    Going to the moon was – is – a massive undertaking. No nation is going to invest the sort of cash required without a good reason. In 1962, that good reason was to prove superiority over the red menace. I’ll reiterate what I said earlier, which you appear to have accidentally missed; do you really think the Russians would have let the US get away with not going to the moon and saying they did?

    Anyone have that picture of Philip J Fry to hand?

    The Apollo missions marked the first event where humans traveled through the Van Allen belts, which was one of several radiation hazards known by mission planners. The astronauts had low exposure in the Van Allen belts due to the short period of time spent flying through them. The command module’s inner structure was an aluminum “sandwich” consisting of a welded aluminium inner skin, a thermally bonded honeycomb core, and a thin aluminium “face sheet”. The steel honeycomb core and outer face sheets were thermally bonded to the inner skin.
    In fact, the astronauts’ overall exposure was dominated by solar particles once outside the earth’s magnetic field. The total radiation received by the astronauts varied from mission to mission but was measured to be between 0.16 and 1.14 rads (1.6 and 11.4 mGy), much less than the standard of 5 rem (50 mSv) per year set by the U.S. Atomic Energy Commission for people who work with radioactivity.[23]

    From here http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Van_Allen_radiation_belt

    So, that’s that theory blown into the weeds. Next!

    Dear “Kryton57”,

    We are able to calculate the speed at which the moon is receding from the Earth because a laser is fired at regular intervals at a large mirror on the surface of the moon and the time of the return laser beam, measured.

    If we have never been to the moon, how did the mirror get there?

    Regards, “Woppit”.

    No it didn’t, there was lots of clutching at straws, all of which is easily debunked. We can do it here if you like. Why not take this opportunity to present your evidence, and tell us which bits of “evidence” on that program were plausible indicators that the moon landings were faked?

    Anyway its Christmas, lets not argue. When the next lot get there (was it China and/or India) we’ll find out won’t we.

    If it were a hoax it would be way more impressive than actually getting there, considering all the irefutable evidence that they have been there.

    In fact in order to perpetrate this hoax, we would have to send other men to the moon to make it look like Neil armstong et al going to the moon.

    Kryton57, there are umpteen papers on the moon reflectors and their use, noit to mention the thousands of times that astronomers and students do this all over the world. If it was arranged for you to attend an experiment that fired a lazer at one of the moon reflectors would you accept that it isn’t a hoax?

    Premier Icon MrWoppit

    The idea (following a simple search using “mirror laser moon” resulting in the internet thowing up a huge amount of information on the subject from reputable sources) that the experiment with the laser/mirror is part of a worldwide misinformation conspiracy is so moronic, that it casts doubt on the idea that “Kryton57” possesses anything resembling moderate imtelligence.

    Mods, can we have a flag attached to the user names of anyone who believes the moon landings were faked? It would save time on other threads, as we’d know when to not argue with idiots. (If you could flag up anthropogenic climate change deniers too, that’d be useful. And people who think 650b is the next big thing.)

    Woppit I haven’t researched the mirror thing, and TBH, can’t be assed. Nothing to do with my IQ, just a lack of desire to google / I must do some work today.

    Toy’s yes I’d be interested to attend, especially if there’s cake and biscuits – although it is of course entirly possibile for a unmanned craft to drop a mirror on the moon…. so I’m not sure I’d be convinced quite yet.
