I was almost beginning to think maybe they did fake the moon landing... untill I read about this.
A total of 382 kilograms (842 lb) of Moon rocks and Moon dust were collected during the Apollo 11, 12, 14, 15, 16 and 17 missions of the Apollo
program. Some 10 kg (22 lb) of the Moon rocks have been destroyed during hundreds of experiments performed by both NASA researchers and planetary
scientists at research institutions unaffiliated with NASA.
These experiments have confirmed the age and origin of the rocks as lunar and were used to identify lunar meteorites subsequently collected from
Antarctica. The Moon rocks are up to 4.5 billion years old, making them 700 million years older than the oldest Earth rocks, which are 3.8 billion
Apollo missions tracked by independent parties
Aside from NASA, a number of entities and individuals observed, through various means, the Apollo missions as they took place. The Soviet Union
monitored the missions at the Space Transmissions Corps, which was "fully equipped with the latest intelligence-gathering and surveillance
How do you fake that? They even took home evidence, good thing they did!
