I really hope this isn't true, and it probably isn't.

I've heard this conspiracy theory a couple of times this year - and I just brushed it off with an eye roll. But, after seeing some of these theorist's videos, seeing their proof and reading in detail why they feel that the Apollo Moon Landing was a hoax, I'm honestly starting to wonder now....

I mean, if this turns out to be true - what ELSE has the U.S. Government 'shown' us that is ALSO fake?!

And another thing....why hasn't the U.S. ever gone back to the moon since July 20th, 1969? Our technology now must surely surpass what we had back in the 60s, yeah?
Same people believe that the earth is flat

I do believe the Moon landing was real, but it is odd that they would lose the video, and now all we have is a video of the TV images taking place. From what I hear the real video was quite clear.

Hey, your not judging me are you? I'm one who believes it can't be round or we would all fall off... just saying it's likely we will never know for sure

I've gone through this already-- it's **swiss** (why it has little holes in it-- what my dad told me anyways and he knew a lot about different things so there)

Extended time. The Apollo 17 crew spent less than 220 hours outside LEO. The study you're citing is about the concerns for Mars crew with their month- and yearlong exposure.

So if a mission to Mars would completely destroy the structures in the brain that store memory, how much brain damage would be suffered during a 220 hour period outside the atmosphere? Would it be significant and readily apparent? Would there be long-term compounding effects? The research of Charles Limoli and his group, which NASA takes seriously enough to grant $9 million in funding to continue, is exploring those questions right now. Would you or anyone, be willing to expose themselves to unfiltered solar and cosmic rays for that length of time, now that this hazard is known?

Probably destroy just enough memory that the Apollo astronauts would come back really believing they actually went to, and landed on the moon. LOL

Outside the Van Allen belts. The atmosphere is not that relevant. People hang out on the ISS for months on end.

For the duration of a moon trip? As risks go, it hardly registers. (Something going boom when it shouldn't, on the other hand...)

Health risks from radiation were well known in 1969, as were the radiation levels inside and outside the Van Allen belts. And it wasn't "unfiltered".

The big risk is long exposure to the background radiation and - much worse - solar flares.

The 21 astronauts who ventured outside LEO seemed to remain pretty spry, FWIW.

Well - there was a multitude of cameras with varying capabilities used. The only "lost" footage was that from the rather primitive B&W television camera on Apollo 11. The 16 mm film camera inside the LM worked fine (but couldn't be pointed at the foot of the ladder) and subsequent missions brought more and more advanced video gear, culminating in this remote-controlled color camera on the rover:

Fun starts around 2:55.

Actually plenty to do there but it wasn't the right time. Mission accomplished, we got the high ground before them damn Ruskies. Most likely the next people there will be private citizens and soon private companies to mine the surface. It won't take much for colonies to get built on the moon either. Just the right business case, which is getting better and better. Although it will be initially expensive, people are going to make a lot of money from work done on the moon.

During my early 20s, I’ve been so drunk I felt like I was going to fall off the earth. The only reason I didn’t fall off the earth was because I hugged the ground and held onto the grass.
