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

It's the 'Jerry Springer' of space documentaries...
10 August 2002 | by distantearthSee all my reviews

It beggars belief as to why actor Mitch Pileggi, star of the X-Files and an apparently healthy and sane man, would lend his name to such hilariously uninformed trash as this.

The conspiracy theory that NASA faked all the Moon landings, has been trotted out for years by self-declared experts whose expertise often seems to cover a superhuman range of highly specialised fields - from Geology, Photography and Physics to Engineering.

One of them, Bill Kaysing - a king of conspiracies, claims amongst other things, that the reason why Astronauts who have been to the moon hang up on him and refuse to talk when he calls them incessantly, "proves" that they have something to hide.

He and others breathlessly point to everything from photos of unexpected shadows and reflections, to the 70s B-movie 'Capricorn One' (which tapped into the public's growing pre-XFiles interest in conspiracy-fantasy), to contradictions between NASA drawings and what THEY think would actually happen in space.

But by far the worst moment of this program comes during the unsavoury references to deceased astronauts, in a cheap attempt to link their tragic deaths to a wider NASA cover-up.

Before you ask yourself if any of this stuff proves we didn't go to the moon, ask yourself this: Is there anything that proves that we did?

Then consider, as one example, the hundreds of scientific staff from around the world, and from all walks of life, who for 30 years have had the pleasure of examining the many kilograms of moon materials that were collected and returned by the Apollo missions. These geological materials are well documented, and are so unique that there is no way they could be artificial.

Meanwhile, with it's dramatic and sinister voiceovers, multiple use of the words "could?" "might?" and "did?", and a complete lack of reasonable objectivity, this sort of crap will no doubt entertain a few more gullible souls, on a break from searching their bellybutton lint for microchips.
