was the moon landing a hoax?

I personally think that NASA did land on the moon in 1969 but it'd interesting to hear other people's opinions on the matter. If you do think it was a hoax could you please tell me why.

    Although my wife's father performed fuel calculations for the original Apollo landing, I'll spare you that speech. Instead, I will encourage you to watch two programs. The first show is called Conspiracy Moon Landing that it currently showing on the National Geographic Channel and it pretty much obliterates all of the popular conspiracy theories.

    I would also encourage you to watch a movie called Capricorn One. Made it 1978, it is a fictional story about a fake mission to Mars. Although it is a science fiction story, it is a good example of how utterly impossible it would be to fake a moon landing for any length of time.

    12 men walked on the moon from 1969 to 1972 and we have neither the resources nor the technology to pull off that big of a hoax for so long. Hundreds of thousands of people have worked on the space program. It would be far easier to put someone on the moon than to try and fake it and keep it secret for nearly 40 years.

    The landings came at a time when our space program was ultra competitive with the former Soviet Union. Remember how big of a deal it was when Sputnik was put into orbit? They had the technology to monitor our moon shots and transmissions. Don't you think they would have called us out if they had evidence that it was all fake?

    Perhaps the most definitive proof of our trip to the moon is what we left behind. For the last 35+ years, scientists have been beaming lasers to the moon and measuring the return times. How are they doing this? The beams are reflected back by equipment left on the moon on at 3 different locations.

    Case closed.

    There is no moon, its all a big conspiracy. Years ago nasa sent a ship up there and stuck a big white ball in the sky.They have had to go back every night and change its shape. This costs a fortune and is the real reason behind the crash of American banks

    The moon landings have been actual. putting aside all the "evidence" to the choice for a 2nd, merely evaluate this: so very many human beings might have had to be in on the conspiracy that there is no way that the secret might have been stored. whether particular brokers went around to anybody engaged on the venture and threatened to kill them and their finished family members in the event that they blabbed, somebody might have enable the secret slip, exceptionally after 30+ years. guy hasn't long previous back to the moon because of the price and for the undemanding certainty that there is no reason to.

    Most rational people don't doubt that the landing took place. There is some doubt about the authenticity of the film depicting the event, with suggestions that at least part of it may have been fabricated.

    its not a hoax. mythbusters tore apart most of the hoax arguments, showing that there must have been a moon landing.

    I believe we landed on the moon. The flag was "waving" because they stuck a pole behind it so that it looked good. Would have looked dumb for the American flag to be hanging limp like that.

    It must be so annoying to go all the way to the moon and think you have made a major breakthrough, and then come back and find that people don't even believe it happened.

    I'm sure NASA did land on the moon. But maybe the video was edited so it looks fake.
