in 2002, the head researcher at the VLT (very large telescope), in the chilean andes, stated that his team would focus all twelve of the 10m mirrors onto the apollo landing sites, and end the conspiracy once and for all, stating that the VLT had the power to focus on smething the size of a human hair. After that press release, nothing more was reported on the subject.
In 2009 (January I believe), I contacted Dr. Oliver Halivaut (i'm not sure if I'm spelling his name right), and asked him what ever became of the research. He stated that they never said anything of the sort, to which I referenced the news articles and the wiki entries that contradicted this. He then replied that he would have to get back to me because the researcher who stated that had since retired, but he said that he didn't believe his old boss had ever made those comments as the VLT wouldn't be able to focus on somethng that small.
