    All the people that worked on the project, built the parts and equipment. Thousands of people in multiple states, years of work in the making, there is not way it was faked.

    Yes, we only did 6 Apollo missions landing on the moon to prove it

    I believe that we may have landed on *a* moon...just probably/maybe not *THE* Moon.

    Have you ever heard of that take/theory before?...mixed in within the various moon related "conspiracies".

    Scott Ostrosky landed on @Winst anus with his probe, that’s a fact. No conspiracy theory about that one.

    The context might be a bit off.....but in a number of ways that can be said to be quite the truth.

    These moon conspiracies used to really piss me off. But after studying the rebuttals I've learned so much more than I intially knew that I'm actually happy they do ask all these stupid questions.

    The big one is "It looked too easy, there should have been more failures." Well there were plenty of failures. Case in point, the first moon landing.

    The Astronauts figure they had at best a 50% shot at surviving the mission. Gene Krantz locked the doors to Mission Control and and told his people "When we leave this room one of three things will have happened. We will have landed on the moon, we will have aborted the mission, or we will have crashed on the moon and the crew will be dead." When the Lunar Module came around the moon it could speak directly with mission control directly and instructions/info had to be relayed through Mike Collins in the Command Module. Gene Krantz decided he "barely" had enough info to continue ... so he did not call for an Abort.

    Armstrong reported that the ride was much rougher than simulation. Armstong sighted a landmark (Boot Hill) that he was not supposed to see until three minutes later. "Our position checks show us to be a little long." They would in fact land 4 miles farther downrange than they were supposed to. At 35,000 feet the onboard computer became overloaded and flashed an obscure "1202" alarm that was luckily decoded in mission control. The alarm went off several times more during the landing.

    At 500 feet Armstrong realized that the computer was taking them down into a football sized fielf od boulders so he took manual control of the craft ... zooming vertically across the lunar surface with no time to explain. At 100 feet the 1 minute fuel light came on (there were erroneous readings due to fuel slosh in the tanks). Armstrong landed with less than 20 seconds of fuel remaining.

    Some industrious person has combined the recorded transmissions and onboard film along with a plain English commentary on youtube for most if not all the landings. Its really interesting to see if you're in to that sort of thing. I can recommend the Apollo 12 and 14 landings as well.

    If by "we" you meant England, I would say no. If by "we" you meant other Earthlings, I would say yes.

    Of course we did. And there's proof.

    First - The equipment (landers, rovers, etc) have been visable on the surface of the moon, along with the tracks from the vehicles.

    One example:

    Then there's the other bit of proof... Reflective targets were left on the moon for measurements and experiments from earth. Quite literally anyone that has the knowledge and ability can fire lasers at these targets and bounce them back. Obviously that wouldn't happen off the face of the moon. It's proof we've been there and placed the targets.
