A museum honouring the first man on the moon has set up an exhibition dedicated to all the conspiracy theorists who claim the lunar landing was a hoax.
The Armstrong Air and Space Museum, named after Apollo 11 astronaut and hometown hero Neil Armstrong, is tackling sceptics head on.
It is inviting them to see what they say is irrefutable proof that Armstrong's historic walk in 1969 actually happened and was not set up in a film studio.
"If it takes a controversy to get them here, that's fine with us," said Andrea Waugh, education specialist at the western Ohio museum.
One favourite of the conspiracists is that the flag next to the second man on the moon, Buzz Aldrin, looks like it is fluttering - impossible in an airless atmosphere.
But the museum said the flag had a horizontal bar attached to keep it from hanging limp.
And distorted shadows that appear next to astronauts in some Nasa photographs - another sticking point with non-believers - are the result of sunlight reflecting off the lunar landscape, Ms Waugh added.
