It occurred to me that there’s one piece of evidence regarding the Apollo moon landings that completely blows all of the doubters out of the water.
NASA was in a pitched battle with the Russians to get to the moon first. Each agency was monitoring everything the other was doing. When the astronauts were speaking from the moon they were using radio signals that anyone could pick up, given a large enough antenna.
If the Russians pointed their antennas at the moon during the missions and heard nothing (as would be the case if no-one had left the earth) don’t you think they would’ve made a big deal about it. Wouldn’t they have milked it for all it was worth?
End of story, Man. And what about that second world war. I have my doubts about that…
