The “Moon Hoax” Hoax

One of the most maddening (and stupid) conspiracy theories I know of is the idea that the Apollo program was a hoax. Buzz Aldrin punched someone for suggesting this (and I think that was a measured response), and even the Mythbusters have shown how the claims of the conspiracy supporters don’t hold water.

Now there is yet another analysis that debunks that, based on some photographic evidence.

One single consideration should have put that to rest a long time ago: does anyone believe that at the height of the cold war the Soviet Union would have let the US get away with such a colossal hoax?

If you really believe this, there are a couple bridges I’d like to sell you.
