You forgot to add how they came back with moon rocks...
The rocks collected from the Moon are measured by radiometric dating techniques. They range in age from about 3.16 billion years old for the basaltic samples derived from the lunar maria, up to about 4.5 billion years old for rocks derived from the highlands.

What a slap in the face to all the scientists who spent (or even gave) their lives working on the space program.
The only evidence we didn't go to the moon is half-baked armchair astronomy and armchair physics. It's ridiculous. I guess if you give a complicated explanation of something wondrous to a sufficiently-large group of people, some folks within that group will not accept the explanation, simply due to not understanding it, or assuming that they know more than the scientists involved. Heap some paranoia in there, and things get even more freaky.
Dr. Brian Cox was right in his characterisation of the doubters.

there we go. a prof of quantom machanics and a rock star.
and to who ever said they coulda used machines to bring back rocks then why the hell havnt they used them to bring back rocks from mars and stuff.
or does mars never happen either?
The Mars Joint Exploration Initiative (MEJI) is an agreement signed between United states' space agency, NASA, and Europe's space agency, ESA to join resources and expertise in order to continue the exploration of the planet Mars. The agreement was signed in Washington D.C. in October 2009.
The ultimate aim is (an unmanned) mission to return Mars rock and soils to Earth, the Mars sample return mission, some time in the 2020's.
