'Cultural vandalism'
19 February 2018 | by See all my reviews

This is a well-conceived short guide to the moon-landing conspiracy theories - 50 minutes the lot, presenting the main arguments from both sides with clear, concise dialogue, neither talking down to us nor trying to blind us with science (a more difficult balancing-act than it looks).

The two leading hoax-claimants are both given a fair chance to expound their theories. What they don't do is make any reply to the counter-arguments. Apparently they never do, according to conspiracy-sceptic Jay Windley, also interviewed here.

Undisputed father of the conspiracy theory is Bill Kaysing, seen in his new, rather unlikely career, running a cat's home out in the desert. He claims that he had a hunch, well before the landings, that no-one would ever get to the moon. Today he maintains that no-one could get there even now. This passionate re-asserting of the case, unsupported by evidence, somewhat weakens his credibility, as does his claim that he has been the object of several assassination attempts. To me, it seems significant that neither he nor his fellow-believer Ralph René had any formal training in the relevant technology, and both their books on the subject had to be self-published.

What keeps up the suspense is that all the claims can look plausible at first. The Stars and Stripes fluttering in a non-existent breeze. Shadows that would require two different suns. Not a star to be seen in the sky. Radiation that would have killed the crew before they were even out of the earth's atmosphere. Moon rock easily faked for effect. Even a suggestion that they were running out of time to fulfil Kennedy's original boast that an American would walk on the moon by the end of the decade, so NASA's funding might be under threat... And one by one, all these claims are demolished, certainly to my satisfaction. With a well-kept Buzz Aldrin in the presidential chair. And a rather elderly Patrick Moore, unfortunately not very audible, but clearly on the side of the sceptics too.

It has been rightly called both a 'compelling myth' and 'cultural vandalism'. (Ralph René was big enough to chuckle at being called a cultural vandal!)
