"With the number of genuine coverups and conspiracies going on, I still find it absolutely incredulous that anyone can still claim - with a straight
face - that the Apollo missions didn't happen. "
Well said. On the other hand, we have to be fair - I myself looked into all the questions (flag waving, shadows etc.) because they weren't
unreasonable for an untrained layman like myself to ask. Only after finding to the bad astronomy site was I satisfied that the hoax theories are
debunked. But asking the questions certainly didn't make me a fool; I think it would be foolish NEVER to question what we're told.
Furthermore, given the longstanding controversy it was a MAJOR screwup for NASA to lose track of the original footage from Apollo 11 - no wonder
people have doubts! Next time, they can keep their archives at MY house (I promise to take better care of them LOL)...
I've always been fascinated by the apollo program, and never felt like we were taught enough about it in school (I guess growing up in the seventies,
it wasn't yet considered "history"). But the info and imagery is all there, and NASA has some sites where you can download great pictures from
Apollo 1 -17.
I'm putting together a slideshow for myself, and seeing the photos of not only the lunar surface but the research, training and technical aspects
has given me a whole new respect for just what was involved in putting our astronauts on the moon and bringing them all back alive.
Anyone who still has doubts should really look at all the photos; I think you'll be moved.
