  Apollo Moon Photos: a Hoax?
This test simulates the shadow "anomaly" in the Apollo photo and demonstrates that ground slant -- in addition to light source and viewer position -- is an important factor in shadow direction.
Apollo critics cite other examples of shadow-direction "anomalies," all of those I've viewed are obviously a result of irregular ground slant.
The claim that these known and mapped Moon mountains that are viewed from myriad angles in Apollo photos [3] are really a fake backdrop that was accidently used in two staged studio sets on Earth is not a theory but an exercise in silliness.

 Was The Apollo Moon Landing Fake?
The Soviets, with their own competing moon program and an intense economic and political and military rivalry with the USA, could be expected to have cried foul if the USA tried to fake a Moon landing.
Apollo 12..........Inspect LEM for damage, deploy flag, unpack and deploy radio and television equipment (spend time trying to fix faulty TV camera), establish contact with Earth, unpack and deploy numerous experiment packages, walk to various locations, inspect the unmanned Surveyor 3 which had landed on the Moon in April 1967 and retrieve Surveyor parts.
Apollo 16..........Inspect LEM for damage, deploy flag, unpack and deploy radio and television equipment and establish contact with Earth, unpack/assemble/equip and test the LRV electric-powered 4-wheel drive car and drive it 16 miles, unpack and deploy numerous experiment packages (double the scientific payload of first three missions, including new ultraviolet camera, operate the UV camera).

 Apollo Landings on the Moon
The liftoff of the Apollo 6 on April 4, 1968, was the last unmanned test of the huge Saturn V rocket systems and the Apollo modules.
The expended Saturn IVB stage was photographed from the Apollo 7 spacecraft during transposition and docking maneuvers.
The round, white disc inside the open panels of the Saturn IVB is a simulated docking target similar to that used on the lunar module for docking during lunar missions.

 Reply To the Fox Special Re Alleged Fake-Moon Landings
The Moon Hoax advocates also seem to have forgotten that they are basing most of their "analysis" on press release photos, which are invariably cleaned up before release to the press.
Moon Hoax advocates argue that this is proof of a large light source (a stage flood or a spot, again) positioned very close to the astronauts.
Below is an Apollo 17 picture (on the left) of a large boulder, with the Earth in the background, taken by an astronaut with a hand held Hassleblad 70mm camera (the same camera which took the photograph of Gene Cernan, with the flag and Earth, above).

 The moon landings hoax - Did Apollo reach the moon
The Apollo 11 astronauts were not able to extend the horizontal pole fully and it left a crease in the flag.
The films were protected from the extreme temperatures of the moon in special canisters and when they arrived back on earth each of the hundreds of frames were individually developed by specialists in their own lab.
The moon landings were the culmination of a fraught space race between the Americans and the Russians.

 Moon Landing Hoax - MOONMOVIE.COM
MOONMOVIE.COM has subjected the six manned moon landings of NASA's Apollo program to critical analysis, challenging the claim that under the Nixon Administration the U.S. government landed 12 men on the moon between 1969 and 1972.
Our films challenge the citizens of the United States to hold their government accountable - to the people which it is obligated by our founding documents to serve and not to abuse.
The manned moon landing hoax serves as a reminder to all of us that our founders were correct in their assessment of human government.

 The Moon Landings Were NOT Faked
The original image (AS16-107-17446) as well as all of the color images from Apollo 16, have a purplish cast to them, indicating some problem with the entire batch of film, either in the source, the developing or in the environment they were exposed to during flight.
The lunar landings and following exploration was done when the sun was low, within a day or so of local sunrise at the landing site at the time of the landing, so that temperatures were actually quite moderate, even after a full 3 days on the lunar surface.
Apollo grew out of a cold war conflict over the minds and opinions of our technological prowess in the world and its eventual success was due to the hard work and sacrifice of literally 100's of thousands of people who built the Saturn V rocket and the Apollo spacecraft.

 EducationGuardian.co.uk | Higher | Were the lunar landings faked?
This many-tentacled conspiracy becomes a topical issue now that alleged Apollo 11 astronaut Buzz Aldrin has thumped a man who claimed that his moon landing was actually filmed in the Nevada desert.
He claims that the Apollo 11 crew put a transparency of the Earth in front of their space-capsule window and then taped the transparency as they made a "journey" to the moon.
We gave the impression that Straight Dope, an organisation with a reputation for debunking scientific fallacies, had accepted that the moon landings were a hoax.

 The Apollo Hoax
However the walls of the Apollo craft and capsule were made as thin and as light as possible and as a result the craft initially could not carry enough air inside to withstand the equivalent to sea level air pressure.
On this video during the Apollo 16 Mission we are told that the film to the left was shot during the first trip by the Rover to Stone Mountain, a trip that was carried out on 21st April and at 1 km west of the landing site...
The Apollo 1 fire of January 27, 1967, killed what would have been the first crew to walk on the Moon just days after the commander, Gus Grissom, held an unapproved press conference complaining that they were at least ten years, not two, from reaching the Moon.

 APOLLO MOON LANDINGS ------- FAKED OR REAL !!??
At the time those probes landed on the moon, nobody knew whether the moon's surface was hard enough for people to walk on.
The surveyor probes showed that it was possible to land a spacecraft on the moon because the surface was crushed rocks, not deep, soft powder.
After discovering that the moon was safe to walk on, NASA claims to have sent six teams of astronauts to the moon.

 Redzero's Moonhoax - How Apollo moon landings really happened
This web site examines the theories that suggest the NASA Apollo moon landings were faked.
In order to successfully land on the moon, NASA needed to either buy in the absolute latest in technology, or develop it themselves.
So it should come as no surprise that some of the equipment used was totally unheard of in the 1960s and, because it was designed to work in an alien environment, is still a novelty 30 years later.

 Faked Moon Landings? - Apollo Hoax Discussion Web Site
On 19th December 1972 the return of the Astronauts of Apollo 17 after the sixth successful Moon landing marked the end of the Apollo era.
Thirty years on, many people have been persuaded that the Apollo missions never actually took place and therefore represent the largest hoax in history.
Initially I was devastated by such claims so I looked at the evidence very carefully and found that it was not what it claimed to be.

 Phil Plait's Bad Astronomy: Bad TV
A rocket capable of landing on the Moon should have burned out a huge crater on the surface, yet there is nothing there.
They fired the rocket hard to deorbit and slow enough to land on the Moon, but they didn't need to thrust that hard as they approached the lunar surface; they throttled down to about 3000 pounds of thrust.
So if you were to stand on the Moon and shine a flashlight at the surface, you would see a very bright spot where the light hits the ground, but, oddly, someone standing a bit to the side would hardly see it at all.

9 Apollo Astronots are confronted by Bart Sibrel.
Although the film contains a misanalysis of the exact means by which Apollo 11 faked their "Earth" T.V. footage from "130,000 miles out", this does not diminish the fact that they did fake it through a slightly different method.
As you know, the movie Apollo 13, was filmed in an airplane that simulates micro-gravity, and Jim Collier [Was it Only a Paper Moon?] proved that the Apollo 13 'scare' was filmed in a simulator.
