Storyline

Skeptics analyze the discrepancies and inconsistencies in the evidence that men landed on the moon in the late 1960s and early 1970s. Their conclusion: NASA faked the moon landings! Evidence of deception includes: the physical problems inherent in rocket control; the lack of a blast crater under the LM descent engine; the lack of stars in the lunar sky; discrepancies and similarities in the shadows and backgrounds of moon photos; flag waving on an airless moon; and the presence of deadly radiation in interplanetary space. The skeptics contend that astronauts have never flown beyond the Van Allen radiation belt. Written by yortsnave

Same old garbage
27 July 2001 | by See all my reviews

Most of the issues raised in this program have been around for many years and have been thoroughly debunked for just as long. Every so often someone gives them a new coat of paint and parades them around for a new generation of gullible patrons. That's what this program does. I am an engineer and well acquainted with most of the issues this program brings up. Their so-called anomalies are not anomalies at all, merely the producers' lack of understanding. This program aired on Fox, which shortly thereafter aired another program in which most of these charges were refuted.

Obviously a point-by-point rebuttal is inappropriate here, but take for example the charge that the lunar module's engine should have dug a huge crater. The LM engine produces 3,500 pounds of thrust at landing, while a Harrier jump jet's engines produce 27,000 pounds. Nobody expects craters under a Harrier, so why should they expect one under a lunar module?

This program is entertaining, but not for the reasons its producers intended. It's an exercise in how silly some people can be.
