Hasselblad were the manufacturer of the camera that took all of the photos on the Apollo missions. Jan Lundberg was the Manager Of Space Projects at Hasselblad from 1966 to 1975 and responsible for the production and building of the Hasselblad 500 EL/70 cameras that were used on the Apollo Missions. He says 'Originally NASA made all the alterations themselves, then they presented what they had done to us and asked if we could do the same, to which we replied yes we can, and we can do it better.
An important factor to take into consideration is the great variations in temperature that the film would have had to endure whilst on the lunar surface. The temperature during the Apollo missions were recorded as being between -180F in the shade to an incredible +200F in full Sunshine.
The astronauts can be seen to move between the shadows of the rocks and then into full sunlight in some shots.
Surely the film would have perished under such conditions? If the film used during the Apollo missions had such qualities as to withstand such differences in temperature, why are Kodak not publicly selling them in today's market?
The “halo” area around Apollo 15 landing site observed by Terrain Camera on SELENE(KAGUYA)
June 13th, 2008
(JAXA) - The Japan Aerospace Exploration Agency (JAXA) reported on the “halo” generated by the Apollo 15* lunar module engine exhaust plume that was detected in the data from Terrain Camera (TC) image.

Even NASA admitted in the 60s that one Solar Flare and the Astronauts were cooked. I remember!
I answered the Van Allen belt question. And if the Russians were beating us, dont you think they'd want to cry hoax asap if it was one?
During Project Apollo, astronauts traveled through the Van Allen belts on both the outbound and return trips to the moon. The crews spent only limited time in transit in the region, and consequently the radiation exposure was limited. The Apollo 14 crew recorded the highest Van Allen belt exposures during their February 1971 mission, but the crew's short-term exposure was still within acceptable levels. Future manned missions beyond earth orbit must also transit the Van Allen belts, but these missions will be shielded and hardened for much longer-duration exposure to cosmic rays and solar wind.
The German mass media was full of going to the Moon with Werner Von
Braun storied of going to the Moon.
