The landings were over the 20th and 21st July 1969 - GMT (zero earth time) is the time that is used. The craft landed on the 20th, 50 years ago today, then a man walked on the Moon on the 21st.

Were they faked? Well independent witnesses can be called.

Jodrell Bank in Cheshire, England, the world's largest radio telescope at the time, was monitoring a Soviet craft at the time of the landings, which overflew the men on the Moon. The Soviet craft was to land and take back samples without using men. The craft landed too heavily. Jodrell Bank also picked up the NASA men. Some pictures "may" have been faked as they needed a constant supply of pictures for the TV, which is fine to stimulate public interest. However the men did land on the Moon.

Ironically, The US Atlas 5 rocket uses Russian made engines.

Who's flag is on the Moon? Last I heard it was the only flag up there. Not the UK, not the Soviet Union, not Russia, not China.

Why do you leave that from your OP? More America hate?

Don't mind John. His national inferiority complex is showing again.

This is obviously a very painful date for him.

Russia buys a HECK of a lot more of our technology than we buy of theirs, as does the rest of the world. Also, while I have a lot of respect for the British Navy and military, they no longer rule the waves, nor have an empire.

Thread closed. Maybe somebody will open one today that isn't bashing America and talking about a fake moon landing.
