I also am not sure we ever went to the moon when they first said we did. But my theory is a little different. Either we did not go or we are so damn far advanced no one would ever believe it. My gut tells me that the Apollo missions were faked as you have shown here, in the desert, or rather maybe even a movie studio under controlled conditions. Then in later missions we did actually goto the moon, but the Apollo missions were basically a false patriotic fundraiser of sorts lol. But its just a theory I usually keep to myself so my friends still hag out with me

Now, I don't believe we have ever been to the moon.
In these later occurrences the Moon played a passive role, and Zeus in the Iliad advised it (Aphrodite) to stay out of the battle in which Athene and Ares (Venus and Mars) were the main contestants. References

Ok so you can kind of make it look like the Moon by turning it grey and adding a black sky in still photos, now try doing that on the fly, with live video feed using 60's tech.
Also, how would one fake the 1/6th gravity and lack of atmosphere out in the middle of the desert? What about the Lunar samples that were brought back? What about all the 400,000 people from various contracted companies who designed and built all the hardware. There were a lot of brilliant minds who worked on the Apollo program. Either they'd have to be all in on it or all fooled by the hoax. But I don't see either of those options happening.
So how would you address the 1/6th gravity and lack of atmosphere? Because there are things I see in the Apollo videos that cannot be done here on Earth.
She packed my bags last night pre-flight
Zero hour nine a.m.
And Im gonna be high as a kite by then
I miss the earth so much I miss my wife
Its lonely out in space
On such a timeless flight
And I think its gonna be a long long time
Till touch down brings me round again to find
Im not the man they think I am at home
Oh no no no Im a rocket man
Rocket man burning out his fuse up here alone
Mars aint the kind of place to raise your kids
In fact its cold as hell
And theres no one there to raise them if you did
And all this science I dont understand
Its just my job five days a week
A rocket man, a rocket man
And I think its gonna be a long long time...
Luna 15 (Ye-8-5 series) was an unmanned space mission of the Soviet Luna program, also called Lunik 15. On July 21, 1969, while Apollo 11 astronauts finished the first human moonwalk, Luna 15 - an unmanned Soviet spacecraft in lunar orbit at the time, began its descent to the lunar surface. Launched only three days before the Apollo 11 mission, it was the third Soviet attempt to return lunar soil back to Earth. The Russian craft crashed on the moon at 15:50 UT – just a few hours before the scheduled American lift off.

But it does look like fake footage done on a shoestring budget! The spacecraft looks like it was constructed from tinfoil. And there is something really messed up with the background in those moon pictures.

Wow. Mountains on the Moon look like...mountains. What a surprise.
Yes, if you speed up the movies from the Moon things look like fall they way would on Earth. But did you notice how much longer the dust stays in the air in the Nevada video than it does in the Moon video (check around 1:00)? That's because there is air. In the moon video the dust just flops back to the surface.
It looks to me like the sample got tossed forward into Jack's range of view as he was doing the "hop". He was looking downward at the ground in front of him and saw it.
