Why not a second "moon mission" to prove they did it once?
21 October 2006
People look at Armadillo Aerospace hardware and see that they can work on rocketry, too, Carmack explained: “It’s not like the [NASA] space shuttle and all this ‘shock and awe’ of national pride.”
His company’s suite of rocket hardware shows that non-government groups can advance the state of available space technology. “It’s now approachable and can be brought to a level that people can think: ‘Hey, this is something I want to do.’”

do you mean go to the moon a 7th time? we've already been there 6 times.
On the moon lies huge quanities of a HUGE energy source and it could also act as a launch pad to the asteroid built and Mars.
The belief is that all 6 of the moon landings were faked, and there have been some reasonable arguments that we haven't been there.
The biggest reason I hold a skeptical view on whether or not we've been there is that no one has gone to the moon since.

Why bother faking more than one, why take the risk? The Soviets would have been the first to notice that radio signals were transmitting from the surface of the Moon.
What risk? Even at the time they aired, nearly 30% of the population of the US didn't believe it actually happened.
It was a convenient distration from the war going on, considering at nearly every time the landings occured, major expansion of the war was going on.
TV ratings went down after Apollo 17, so Apollo 18 was scrapped. NASA beat the Soviets, people lost interest and funding was cut. Certain facts such as these are ignored by the moan hoax proponents.
How about the fact that ANY country would still love to make it to the moon?
Or the fact that conveniently, nearly every document, tape, and file related to the moon landings disapeered from NASA during the 70's?
Or how about the fact that the Soviets prior to the moon landing had ten times the amount of accomplishments and experience in face compared to the USA?
Or the fact that the guy who made the rockets that brought us up there is on record saying that it is pragmatically impossible to go to the moon considering the amount of fuel they would need to bring?
While I've never been a hoaxer proponent persay, what was one conspiracy I thought I'd never accept has led me down a rabbit hole that is quite complexing indeed. Like I've said, there are many arguments out there that aren't discussed publically to any great length when it comes to "debunking hoaxers" that lend credibility to the possibility that it was hoaxed. Which is why I'm skeptical on the matter.
