Originally posted by Ponderable A good conspircay theory can't be siproved. The Argument will run as follows:
* The Germans can't put a car on the moon. But they probably can get Access to the film Studio to "prove" an old fake with a new fake.
* even if the chines would publish photo#s taken "on the moon" People would think that they just in the same hoax.
Time to buy a few tinhats
Sure, they can pull that card but that can only last so long. Next the Brazilians might send probes to the moon, then maybe the Italians, the Israilis, in another 50 years there will be cities with a thousand people on the moon and the conspiracy will die a well deserved death with ropes circling the landing sites where the first footprints of mankind are enshrined and tour guides take kids out there but nobody allowed inside the roped off area. "Children, here is the site where men first walked on the moon a hundred years ago, they were brave pioneers' etc., etc., etc.

A moon City. In fact when I grew up in the 70's I expected to be ablt to live there by this time...
December 11 will mark the 44th anniversary since the last man has walked on the moon....the moon simply is not relevant any more. Even if man did go there, lots can happen in 44 years. 12 men have walked on the moon, in the grand scheme of things, how much evidence could they really have left behind?

I did my bit. I worked Apollo, tracking and timing to be exact. Till Nixon killed the space program. I was at Goddard Space flight center in Maryland. I don't need to thump my chest on other people's accomplishments you turd.
