Real. As the man said - they went there six times. Why fake it more than once?

Of course it was real. To fake something of that would constitute a cover-up bigger than anything Scully & Mulder could ever hope to uncover, which itself strains plausibility given the sheer number of people (1 in 10 people in America worked at least peripherally with the space program during the peak) that would have to be sworn to silence.

You can actually see evidence of the moon landing with a good telescope. It was real.

Yes i have seen it several times with my telescopes after a few beers [Karate Kid]

Just kidding,at 400,000 kilometers Hubble’s resolution on the Moon is about 200 meters. In other words,even a football stadium on the Moon would look like a dot to Hubble.And Hubble doesn't need to worry about the unsteady atmosphere.So from the Ground?no chance,not ever imo [Frown]

Here`s a pic with my backyard telescope around 20% of about 2000 video frames merged down to one clear image.Resolution at best 2km.

Another shot,this time the Apollo 11 landing site.This is just one single photo,the best one of around 200-300 shots that night.Since this is not a video stack,the resolution here is about 4km.But at the best i manage around 1/10th of the resolution of Hubble,not bad considering it is just a 400$ telescope [Wink]

You're right, bandit. I was thinking about the images of debris, footprints, lunar landers, remnants of science experiments, etc. that they have recent photographic evidence of, but that was actually imaged by the Lunar Reconnaissance Orbiter, not from Earth.

Yeah,pretty cool images from the LRO?


Mankind largest achievement,and there are people out there trying to make some money out of those HOAX theories.

Worst thing though,some actually believe it.Sometimes i wonder how stupid some people are.Even Galileo Galilei 400 years ago had more sense [Roll Eyes]

The second man on the moon Buzz aldrin over 70 [Karate Kid] (respect) approached called a liar and a coward in public...On another clip this guy(sibrel) ask if they got that on tape.probably hoping to make a few more $ i guess.

Buzz punch


Oh well..

Seeing as you people are talking about whether the Moon landings are either real or faked, I thought that I might as well tell you about this film given that you may enjoy it, even though it concerns Mars and not the Moon. Capricorn One (1978) is about the first manned flight to Mars, which is in fact faked as a NASA official, played by Hal Holbrook, decided that a real one would be too dangerous, so it is staged in a television studio. Then, when the Pentagon announces that the capsule burnt up on re-entry, then the three astronaunts -- James Brolin, Sam Waterson and O.J. Simpson -- suddenly realise that they are going to be murdered on the government's orders so that they never share their secret with anybody at all. Meanwhile, investigative reporter Elliott Gould thinks that something suspicious is going on and decides to look into it.

That pretty much sums it up [Wink]

Well they did filmed simulations as part of their training and photos of that are often used to "prove" the hoax theory since it shows the astronauts on mock moon settings with model ships, etc.

Good observation, but at the same time you could say that they couldn't keep it a secret, and that's precisely why people are talking about it today. An accusation of conspiracy is IMO the manifestation of serious collective doubt, inside information and public suspicion.
