The only reason I have heard for a "fake" moon landing was so we could "beat the Russians". Well any form of research would show that the Russians
were no where near putting a man on the moon.
The Russians booster (N1) was a complete disaster. The Saturn V on the other hand was way ahead. To add to that, in the US.. there was ONLY the Saturn
V. In Russia, there were (if I recall correctly) two or three competing programs for a solid booster rocket.
Ask yourself this. If it was such a race. Such an important race that we had to "fake" it, which involved launching several Apollo missions over the
course of 14 years. That's a pretty elaborate hoax to simply "fool" someone.
Did we gain anything over the Soviets by beating them? There has to be a legitimate REASON for a hoax.
