And 8 and 10 only orbited, while 9 was low earth orbit. Wikipedia rocks.

Good thing he was talking about launches, not landings.

Apparently the Soviets also watched every move our maids made.

He said those proved getting to the moon was real. Watching the launches doesn't. It just proves we got a rocket off the ground. The fact that they continued on to the moon is what proves the lunar landings were real.

1. The flag in the video was seen waving... On the MOON!

3. If the film is speed up a little bit the astronauts look like thy move normally... That proves it could be faked.
4. The landing the Apollo should have made all the nearby dust fly away, yet somehow Astrong makes a footprint...
5. I Armstrong was the first man on the moon then who was filming him?


1. thats because when they pushed it into the moon the flag moved, not to mention the moon does have gravity
2.uh, yah it was, in fact the only film left that is still intact is in Australia, and the footage was live
3.uh, you speed it up, what do you expect
4. maybe because the probe's thrusters blew the top dust away, its like asking if there is dust on something and you blow some of the dust off, why is there dust on your fingers if you wipe the dust, and the dust might have flown away, but lets see, I think a 130 lbs man in a 70 lbs space suit will leave a footprint in the dirt
5. the probe had a camera on it from multiple angles, and there was also a second guy

and if the film was faked, why would the Soviets not have continued to try and go to the moon, if they even had a shadow of a doubt that the Americans didn't make it

Actually, if they wanted to, the crew of Apollo 10 could've landed. IIRC, the only thing they didn't do was land. But they could've. Space Camp rocks more than wiki.

Um, if you consider a swirling vortex of low pressure water vapor driven by evaporating sea water that killed over 1000 people, destroyed millions of homes, caused billions in property damage, etc. sexually attractive, then yes.
