A 1999 poll by The Gallup Organization found that 89% of the US public believed the landings were genuine, while 6% did not, and 5% were undecided

These are fine, but rather sad when we realize what we are technologically capable of.

Did you miss the Apollo Mission 101 back at the beginning?
When the mission was in the initial investigation stages probes were sent that took high resolution images of the surface and beamed them back to Ground Control. These pictures were then printed out on massive sheets of photographic paper and laid out on the floor of a warehouse (there are a number of archive photos of Apollo scientists working on smaller ones too).
These photos were cutting edge technology back then, and weren't digital as they are today... Are you seriously telling me that they haven't improved things in the last 40 years?
The military tells us that they have been able to read newpapers from 150 miles away for over a decade... and you still think that NASA doesn't have that kind of technology at its diposal?
Are you mad?
Are you telling me that NASA haven't thought to spend a few extra dollars on getting the best bang for their buck?
Either something is wrong, or you are nuts to believe such crap images as these!

If those images of the same quality wee waved around as 'proof' of a UFO would you blindly believe it or ask question?

I just looked at the photos and did the same thing...why is the sun reflecting on the lander in the opposite direction that the sun is shining on the terrain? The shadows go two different ways.

Very exciting to see the sites having watched the landings lo those many years ago.
For the record, how many miles/km away is the LRO orbiting?
