Anyone find those 2,600 boxes, or 13,000 "missing" original tapes of EVERY Apollo mission?
Now why would anyone be suspicious that NASA faked the Apollo moon landings?
The tapes were sent from Goddard to a storage facility of the National Archives in late 1969. This kind of transfer is standard for government records, whether contracts, memos, photographs or space telemetry. Among the 2,614 boxes of Apollo mission tapes that went to the facility, the original Apollo 11 may have been among them. Between 1975 and 1979, NASA's Goddard Space Flight Center recalled all but two of the 2,614 boxes. The remaining two boxes included telemetry tapes from Apollo 9, leading engineers to believe that these shipments contained most of the Apollo related materials. First-generation copies of the converted video from Apollo 11 as well as other first-generation copies and some original versions of the converted video for the Apollo 12 through Apollo 17 flights are still in NASA Johnson Space Center's Informational Resources Directorate's video vault in Houston.

The Fox doc years ago was very strong
and I've seen footage of the press conference immediately following the Apollo 11 mission in which the astronauts seemed visibly afraid to say anything.
I visited Cape Canaveral a few years ago and the whole complex seemed like it was set up for tourists and just a Disney-type front of pure propaganda.
I tend to think Lear is right when he says there is a secret space program.
Again, NASA is hiding something. What it is about the moon they don't want us to know, is the real question.

Only the original Apollo 11 pre-conversion transmissions are missing. Scan converted video of all of the transmissions are avaliable. The only difference between the originals and the converted versions is the quality.
Originals of the other Apollo missions are available.
NASA Searching for Moon Landing Tapes
NASA launches official search for more than 13,000 original tapes of Apollo moon missions
WASHINGTON, Aug. 16, 2006
(AP) Red-faced because the best pictures of its glory days are missing, NASA said Tuesday it was launching an official search for more than 13,000 original tapes of the historic Apollo moon missions.
What's missing are the never-before-broadcast clear original videos -- not the grainy converted pictures the world watched on television more than three decades ago.
The tapes aren't lost, insists the NASA official put in charge of the search. But he doesn't know where they are.
Most likely they are somewhere at the sprawling Goddard Space Flight Center in Greenbelt, Md., which misplaced the tapes originally. But they also could be stored somewhere else.
The original video, taken directly from the moon and beamed to deep space network observatories in Australia, has never been seen by the general public or even NASA officials.
The entire world watched fuzzy, ghostlike images of Neil Armstrong and Buzz Aldrin walking on the moon. But only a handful of technicians saw the good stuff live, sharp enough to see Armstrong's reflection in Aldrin's faceplate, said Stan Lebar, the retired Apollo television camera manager.
"The quality ... is two, three or four times better than we ever saw," said Richard Nafzger, a senior engineer at Goddard who on Tuesday was put in charge of the search effort.
The original tapes played 10 frames per second in Australia, Nafzger said. But television needed 60 frames per second so each picture was repeated six times and "you'd see ghosting," he said.
Until Tuesday, the search for the tapes was a spare-time deal and retirement hobby for Nafzger and the 81-year-old Lebar -- not anything organized. Now with news reports of the lost tapes and NASA wanting data for its new lunar missions, the agency ordered a search of its cosmic attics.
Nafzger hopes the hunt can be wrapped up in under six months with five workers and a bit of travel. Stored in more than 2,000 boxes, each tape lasts only 15 minutes. Everything from all 11 missions -- from launch to splashdown -- is on the videos, Lebar said.
There are 15 reels (three boxes) for just Apollo 11's stay on the moon, Lebar said.
"It's the whole history of the entire mission, of everything that went on," Lebar said.
Apollo TV tapes: the search continues

Vintage Apollo space missions tapes uncovered at a university in Western Australia are not what a team of experts are trying to locate.
"These aren't the tapes we're looking for," said John Sarkissian, operations scientist at the Commonwealth Scientific and Industrial Research Organization's (CSIRO) Parkes Radio Observatory in Parkes, Australia.

Now who's being dishonest?

You probably won't consider this proof, but do you really think astronauts went to the moon in this warped-walled and gold duct-tape contraption (actual Apollo 11 lunar photo) that isn't even smudged or singed and looks like a second-grade papier maché project?

are completely factually debunked here at: www.clavius.org
Also go to youtube and enter 'bart sibrel debunked' and find many videos debunking all his claims..
Did you catch when he was confronted on air by a caller about this video on you tube that proves he deliberately cheats by doctoring apollo clips on his movies? www.youtube.com...
He tried to weasel out of it by claiming he had never watched this and the other videos from that particular apollo flight, even though clearly the footage is on and doctored on his own video he sells! A bald faced lie!

Aulis has more pics that show all the tape, scotch tape, used to hold it together.
Gold foil. Can you imagine landing on the moon, when you have not the slightest clue what the terrain is like, in something like that with spider legs and those flat feet covered in gold foil? I would not want to attempt to land in the ocean from 10 feet in that contraption.
This is the ultimate in hokeyness expecting people to continue to believe in this ridiculous hoax.

I do see lot's of steel and lot's of rivets though...
