Ok guys here's what happened...The Moon Landing was real in 1969 and it happened as they said except for one small bit. They couldn't guarantee quality footage and for the money it cost someone demanded a backup plan to not spoil the event, they used the best Movie Producer in Kubrick to pull it off for them and at some point they switched to the studio live or they may have even done the footage before the event.
Everything can be explained by the above account....cardboard lander to labled rocks.

The moon landing was one of the most successful world-wide psyops ever created.
Mass brainwashing. Those that were young and gullible were hooked harder than any religion could do.
Imagine if the internet was alive and well back then?
9/11 was a similar world-wide mass brainwashing campaign. It worked very successfully on some - the young and gullible. The true believers.
Sorry, a pressurized tin can did not go to the moon, land, play a round of golf, and then take off and land back on earth in the 1960s. Come on man! Get Fing Real.
The special effects of the time were just not up to the job of recreating the lunar environment. They certainly were not up to recreating with 100% accuracy, a colour view of Earth on live TV.
The funny thing is: Over the years here on ATS, we've had so many that show up with "The Proof" that we never went to the Moon.....only to get their "proof" debunked and trashed.....some times rather quickly. Over and over and over and over. There is a really good reason why we place threads like this in Skunk Works: The evidence we went is overwhelming, while actual evidence that it was faked is almost non-existent and pretty much ends up being people trying to change the evidence to fit their Moon Landing Hoax Hypothesis instead (which is not how you do Science). We do have some die hards around here still that tend to troll the threads, but by the end of the day the results are always the same: Moon Hoaxing Debunked. It alway boils down to this: We had the tech to go. We did NOT have the tech to fake it properly. It was easier to actually go, but would have been much harder to fake it. It would have been impossible to keep secret, especially from other countries like the Soviet Union, who would have gladly screamed their heads off that we faked it....but they didn't because we didn't fake it. Risk of failure was always a possibility. Failure would have been demoralizing to the US citizens at the time. However: The risk of getting caught faking it would have been hundreds of times worse. Not only would the US lost face with every country on the face of this planet, but with it's own citizens. Better to make dead heroes.......than to be caught lying and faking. I know that last part is hard to believe, especially in today's world where we are lied to all the time by our government and politicians. Back then however, it was a much different place. If it was too hard to go to the Moon for real......then why did the Soviets try so hard? People should stop and go take a look at their records, film and video that became available after the fall of the Soviet Union. They did try, very, very hard and damn near beat us there.
