    Some wackjob will still say they faked it. I loved what Charlie Duke said in the documentary In the Shadow Of the Moon. We've been to the Moon nine times. Why would we fake it nine times?

    From the conspiracy theories I've heard. Apollo 11 was faked, possibly 12 too. And the first one to really get there was 14 or 15. IE that NASA couldn't meet Kennedy's deadline and faked it, but did eventually get there. That's from the actual paranoid theoriests not stupid people who parrot them.

    They should bury some dead bodies on the moon and come back to check out the decay.
    Check for micro organisms

    That's pretty cool. I'd really like to see them spot one of the lunar rovers or LM descent/ascent rocket stages, but I guess those are too small to pick up by the 10m resolution camera.

    I'd always considered it the other way around, specifically that after Apollo 13 would have been when they started faking moon landings.

    Still, in all the pros and cons I've ever read on the subject, we had another one in the paper today at it, and why does everyone focus on the flag waving on the moon rather than the numerous "apparent" photographic anomalies, like the crosshairs disappearing behind objects and tyre tracks changing shape and size? I'd always considered the flag waving to be the absolute weakest parts of people's arguments for the landings being faked.

    Yeah I always forget that the best "on moon" footage comes from Apollo 15 on.
