I'm just saying that you aren't going to stump any MLH's with "why would they hoax it more than once?"
The apollo programs ended up costing an estimated 170 billion (2005) dollars. That's quite a motive. If your a MLH'er, and your looking for a motive, money would be a good one. If you consider this as a motive in your plot, then repeated hoaxes would fit. Maybe if you were creative about it, you could throw in some kind of ulterior military motive using the payload, and funding, for a black project. All in all, it would make for a good movie.
I see what you're saying. For a moment there, you had me thinking you were on the MLH camp.
$170B in 2005 dollars ? Cheap, compared to the multi billions / trillions farmed out of late.
Well, how do you suppose they get around the proposition that other countries, China and Russia in the main, would have had no motive to keep quite, and every motive to expose the 'fake' moon landings. After all, imagine what prestige THAT would have resulted in, for the country doing the exposing.
How do the MLH's get around that one ? Anyone know ?
PS - I have tried to find some answer to that myself, but haven't been able to, and see it as possibly the most glaring ommission in the MLH's story.
