Six spacecraft landed on the moon between July 1969 and December 1972, and 12 astronauts walked on the moon. The LRO mission is the first step in a return to the moon - but it should also settle a conspiracy theory that has exasperated Nasa chiefs for 30 years: the claim that the moon landings were faked. Space-based images of human hardware at the landing sites should put paid to that one.
Will it end all the conspiracy theories.............................

probably not

Of course not, as the conspiracy theorists will simply claim that any LRO images showing Apollo artifacts are themselves faked.

Ironically, the people making fringe claims with photos attached have the same problem.

haha oh man, heard this on another forum and made me laugh

" There not being a McDonalds or a Starbucks on the moon is probably the most convincing evidence that America has never been there."

I spoke with a true beleiver in the conspiracy. He is more convinved than every
that it was faked because "why else would they be spending millions now to
keep the cover alive?"

Even if you could take them there personally they'll say the site was a more
recent fake to fool THEM.

You can't win with these people.

And if NASA doesn't take pictures of it, they claim that's part of the coverup too. Things like that imply to me that this is a purposeful hoax. Sometimes its tough to tell the difference between a true believer and someone who is just trying to sell a book.
