Belaying Doubts of Moon Landing

    Couldn't we just point some high powered telescopes at the moon and show these skeptics the equipment, tire tracks and footprints left behind on the moon by all the missions that went there?

    Has anyone done that and is there a link to the evidence?

    Oh...

    Here's one answer...

    Here's the mechanism by which we were privy to the Apollo 11 landing.

    http://www.beadesigngroup.com/blog/archives/2006/07/moon_landings_archiving_and_im.php


    And Neil Armstrong has sited some evidence that he was there...

    Other independent observers tracked the mission by radar...

    And the Russians had a particular interest in proving, to themselves, that the Apollo missions were real... and used highly sensitive equipment at their "Space Transmissions Corps" to verify the missions.

    The evidence is pretty broad for Apollo 11's mission to the moon.

    The last couple of lunar orbiters imaged the landing sites, the resolution is good enough to see dust plumes left by the engines, but not the equipement itself.

    (Of course the data from these could have been manipulated by Major League Baseball - who together with the Milk Marketing Board faked the original landings)

    Please note that S&D addresses only claims of unexplained phenomena, and advertised product claims. Moved to GD.

    OK... my excuse is that people who claim the moon landing didn't happen are an unexplained phenomenon.:smile:

    The single best proof that the moon landings happened is that the Russians did not call foul. They would have screamed bloody murder in 1969 and every other trip had the transmissions from the moon NOT come from the moon. You can bet that they were listening and watching, so they knew exactly where the signals were comming from.
