I do not know enough about the particle physics behind the Van Allen belts, but this is a nice, plain explanation (with a handy diagram): www.astronomycafe.net...
As for the Command Module, it was designed to be strong and light. This is an image of a Block 1 (pre-Apollo 1 fire) unit under construction: www.hq.nasa.gov...
As you can see, there are layers of Mylar and aluminum here...not including the outer shell. Most people in the hoax community are puzzled as to why the outside of the ship is covered in 'tape.' This tape is actually Kapton, which is described as "...is regularly used as an insulator in ultra-high vacuum environments due to its low outgassing rate." it also has great endurance in very low to very high temperatures. On reentry to our atmosphere is would char and flake off...making it a valuable collectors item.
These pictures are of a Block 1 capsule that I had the joy to see in person. It's very similar to the ones that actually flew to the moon:
The outer surface:
The famous window that everyone is talking about:
For scale, an average 5' 10" American male:
I don't know if this answers any questions, but it should help illustrate the vehicle and it's arrangement.edit on 1/11/2012 by NuminousCosmos because: (no reason given)

Yes but you have to make allowances for the weight of their suits etc
Total weight of the full EVA suit (+ a 180 pound man) = about 380 pounds (for the Apollo/Skylab version A7L).
380 divided by 6 = approximate total Lunar "weight".
Mass remains the same, whether on Earth, the Moon or in free fall.

Fake footage I'm not surprised! Basically everything I've ever learned in high school is fake, since I've been out all I've been doing is relearning history lol!

You are so right. Certainly they went there at some point, but photos up there are so manipulated as are many other videos and photos in space. Part thruths is what we get, but unfotunately its NASA that gives us the firsthand info of events in space. Its just sad.

The biggest argument against it, for me anyway *as someone posted in a video a few pages in* is that, over 40 years ago the US was able to go to the moon, and in all the decades since, with the absoloutely huge technological advances since then, the space shuttles have got only a few hundred miles above the earth (as opposed to how far away is the moon!?!?!)
That is strange- and if true, then the US has fairly dumbed down in 4 decades

I find that amazing.
