Ok, Ok. Here’s what really happened. Operation Highjump was given the task of finding a Nazi base in Antarctica. When the got to the area where the base was supposed to be, they found an abandon launching facility for Nazi flying saucers. While searching the base, it was found that the Nazis abandon their facility in the Antarctic to go to their hidden base in the hollow Moon. Unfortunately during the search a destruct device that had malfunctioned, detonated causing a great loss of life among the searchers and totally destroying all of the information that they had collected.
The survivors were sworn to secrecy and the Nazi base faded from memory, until Apollo 8 received signals during their orbit of the Moon. These signals warned that if there were any attempt at a landing on the Moon, the spacecraft would be destroyed. Since Apollos 9 and 10 were only orbital missions, it was decided to go ahead with them. On Apollo 10 the third stage booster was destroyed by what looked like a beam of light. Because of this it was decided to fake the Apollo 11 landing and shoot fake film footage. The Saturn V rocket was launched with no one on board and the spacecraft was sent on a trajectory into the Sun. The same thing happened with Apollo 12.
It was decided that Apollo 13 would launch manned and attempt a Moon landing. Everything was fine, until the astronauts reported seeing a flash of light just before their fuel cell tank exploded. As they circled the far side of the Moon the received a transmission telling them how lucky they were and how easily they could have been totally destroyed. The rest of the Apollo missions were faked, because NASA refused to risk another crew.
Some people in the know believe that the Nazi beam weapon contributed to the loss of the Space Shuttles Challenger and Columbia, but that is an unknown.
