Apollo missions tracked by independent parties[edit]
Aside from NASA, a number of entities and individuals observed, through various means, the Apollo missions as they took place. On later missions, NASA released information to the public explaining where third party observers could expect to see the various craft at specific times according to scheduled launch times and planned trajectories.[6]

Observers of all missions[edit]
The Soviet Union monitored the missions at their Space Transmissions Corps, which was "fully equipped with the latest intelligence-gathering and surveillance equipment."[7] Vasily Mishin, in an interview for the article "The Moon Programme That Faltered," describes how the Soviet Moon programme dwindled after the Apollo landing.[8]

The missions were tracked by radar from several countries on the way to the Moon and back.[9

Read the entire Wiki article. The moon missions were not faked.
Absolutely correct Mike555.

One who doesn't have a sufficient grasp on grammar probably doesn't have an understanding of elementary physics.

The thing is though, when it comes to the big,important stuff...Govt is extremely good at keeping secrets.

JFk files are a good example, all that time and the parts that were recently released (not to mention, the sections FBI doesnt want released), IS STILL secret, after all those years, and with different people coming and going from the agencies.

The loner-people have a hard time admitting that the government can keep secrets because at the same time, they wish to claim that government is inept at everything. There's just no dealing with dumb.

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.
Well... That's a different subject, but there isn't a lot to mine on the Moon, it's a brutal environment for machinery and it's at the bottom of a damn inconvenient gravity well. If you're about to say He-3 for fusion, well - sustained fusion has been a few decades away for as long as I've lived.

More from the tin-foil hat crowd?

I guess these are fake too:

Not nearly as inconvenient as earth's well. Given the metals concentration in the regolith, as well as the highly available oxygen and silicon, creating the raw materials for and building housing, spacecraft, fuel, etc becomes easier. Which means if we are ever going to build the infrastructure for asteroid mining and processing (which is already in the business case phase at several companies) it is a lot easier on the moon than the earth. It's all about the outbound shipping costs from earth.

One heavy platinum-family-bearing asteroid could be worth trillions of dollars back on earth. That makes a business model easier to put together.

He-3 is in pretty low densities on the moon. You'd have to basically strip mine a significant chunk of the surface every year to make it realistic which makes no sense.

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?
Werner Von Braun involved with the space program was so against the decision to turn from the exploratory space mission that the space program was to the International Space Station experimentation program. In his view the point was to leapfrog from the Moon to the next target and 'go where no one had gone before'. The government took the political tune that global cooperation was much preferred and in our national interest $. We no longer had the impetuous of a JFK and LBJ pushing us onward.

Von Braun, the original Mr Rocket Man, was quite unhappy.

Astronaut's Wives Club explains the pictures. They are fake/staged but should never have been released. The mission was real but there is some fake footage out there.
