Read a book!    

Response to number 3......either your an idiot or dont know when people are just making fun.......growed up is a kiddies term which they are using for their own title........also if they were they first astronauts on the moon how come they cant explain the flag waving....the same landscape as the desert oh and also the sun was shining against the moon which puts it up to 33,000 degrees celcius.....

@#7:
the surface of the sun only has 6000 °C, how should the moon then reach 33,000 °C? that's just ridiculous. :)
you can answer all those questions yourself, go and invest some time on wikipedia.

It was all a hoax just so we could say we beat the Russians to the moon. Hell, we can't even predict the weather let alone go to the moon.

You know they didn't call "Buzz Aldrin" Buzz for nothing! He was a drunk and mentaly unstable. Left many a party he left cryin' in his booze. Like they would let somebody like that go in space.

A Hoax? What are you people smoking? I a mean really-Get a grip!

They are outstanding men. Too bad there are not a lot of men like that around today. Real men are almost extinct!

Dariumious, Derailla and Thessayist-Can you pass the hair gel? Freaks!

It's nice to see some REAL heroes getting the attention they deserve instead of that guy who did the other moonwalk.

It's a lie, don't believe the hype. The govermnet has lied about every event in the last hundred years, this is no different.

1. There are no stars in the background in ANY of the videos. EVER!!!! (camera angles my ass)
2. There are millions of stars in the background of the still photos, but not the video (they had photoshop, not CGI back then)
3. You can see in a video piece one of the astronauts who had fallen being 'pulled up' by the guy working the cables
4. THE FLAG FREAKIN BLOWS IN THE WIND..... no matter what NASA says. Use your fkn eyes. (for dummies, no wind on the moon)
5. There are photos of the lunar rover with NO TIRE tracks around it, as if it had been put there in place by a crane on a set, and not wheeled into place like it would have been on the moon.

6. COMMON SENSE: WE CAN NOT GO TO THE MOON TODAY, ESTIMATE WE CAN NOT GO IN 30 YEARS, but we went 3 times 40 years ago, easy-breezy-japaneezy like driving to the 7-11 back in the'70s when they had rotory phones. Wake up.

Maybe only 15% of people know it was a hoax, but I'd rather be with the 15% who are Astronomy professors and Physics geniuses than the 85% of Americans who think they actually (hahahahaha) went to the moon and also watch the Hills and The Bachelor and think it's like, real and stuff.
