With MANY conspiracy theories, which all make sense and puts the questions in anybodys heads, this recent discovery failed to shut leading conspiracy theorists up.
 
 
 
"Has man ever gone to the moon?

Ask a standard six-year-old and their answer will be as steadfast as if you had asked them if the Earth is round or if girls have cooties. But many adults, with a full understanding of history and literature, aren’t as convinced. To them, man’s many lunar landings are as imaginary as those cooties.

But a recent discovery by an Arizona State University professor might have many a conspiracy theorist wallowing in self-doubt. Mark Robinson was initially skeptical that he would find the six historic flags that were planted on the moon by Americans, but high-resolution cameras show that five of the six are still standing.

The sixth one was lost during the Apollo 11 mission. Buzz Aldrin claims to remember it blowing away from a rocket blast that skyrocketed that team of astronauts back to Earth...

The flags were all planted during the historic Apollo missions, which first saw Americans land on the moon in 1969. No other country has been able to repeat the momentous feat.

The images taken by NASA’s Lunar Reconnaissance Orbiter (LRO) satellite also reveal lunar rovers left behind on the moon’s surface, more indication that man has indeed been to the extraterrestrial surface.

But instead of admitting defeat, conspiracy theorists believe that this smoking gun is actually another smokescreen in a long line of government coverups. According to them, the images aren’t up to the standards provided by our modern technology. If Google Earth can see inside your bedroom, why can’t NASA, with its space-age technology, produce some quality shots?"

The following are just some of the conspiracy theories around which are constantly discussed...
 
The waving flag (no wind on the moon).
the shadows constantly changing as if studio lights going on and off.
shadow of astronaut not falling in direction of the way the light of the sun.
Despite technology being so advanced and moved on in 40 years, nobody has managed to do it again.
Film Studio lights reflections in astronauts masks.
Failure to shoot live footage from the moon even to NASA.
Colour cameras taken up on the flight, Pictures and films all Black and White.
the list is endless and interesting and an interesting read.
 
 
US was in a very stressful Cold War with the USSR back then. It would make perfect sense if NASA decided to fake the landing to psychologically damage the USSR's leaders and scientists. The USSR's space program wasn't centralized, unlike the US', which many say is the reason the US won the space race, or did they?
so did it happen or did they fool the world and more importantly, fooled the Russians?

I believe they went, even though it was a strangely phenomenal rate of prgress from the Wright brothers first flight in 1903 until the moon landing 66 years later, though the Germans did seem to have some incredible technology at the end of the war which was put to good/bad use by the Americans and Russians.
I do love the conspiracy theory mind you, it's not without some thought provoking points. For anyone who's seen "Capricorn One" the conspiracy theory is still well worth looking into.

The flag "pole" was actually an inverted "L" shape ... I heard this on an interview with Buzz Aldrin a few years ago, when the interviewer (forget who) challenged him about the lack of wind !



As was the Russian Flag ! Wink

There is an excellent documentary which is being shown sporadically on Discovery. They go out near LA to terrain not dissimilar to the moon and film (with a single light source to mimic the sun).

The photos produced have shadows coming from different angles (shadows will converge in the distance) and they suit up to take the photos without viewfinders - and the results are excellent.

One by one they dismiss the hoax theorists.

The journalist , David Aaronavitch has explained the conspiracy theorists in his book "Voodoo Histories". He asks you to consider which is the more likely - the conspiracy or the truth and that will give you the answer. In the case of the moon landings, is it easier to believe they went there or the 12 moon walkers, the other astronauts, their families, everyone at NASA and their families.........and not a single word to confirm the hoax theory. No deathbed confessions by anyone.

There is no hoax as the 12 men (Armstrong, Aldrin, Conrad, Bean, Mitchell, Scott, Shepherd, Duke, Cernan, Schmidt, Irwin and Young) went to the moon.

I don't think there is a common conspiracy theory man has never been to the moon. It's the first moon landings we should be talking about.
