There does seem to be a feeling here (not Eburacum of course) that NASA did fake some pictures, for whatever reason
If it were to come out that some other science body in whatever field, faked "evidence" what a huge outcry there would be
Any research they had previously published would immediately be thrown into doubt

Yes I have missed your previous link. Ta v much WD.

However this link you put here takes me to a site that doesn't appear to have those pics. Unless I missed something.

There is telescopes powerful enough to see for left over debris but they are in Government Hands no Private body can get proper funding to build a Telescope to see if the moon landing was legitimate, so they focus on Radio waves in outer space
FFS, join an astronomy club and go book time at a major lensed telescope with them. You can see the Sea of Tranquility and where the landing sites are. I have found that astronomers are lonely people who generally love the company of someone who is even passingly interested in what they do. Or would you rather not put your money where your mouth is and actually go see the truth of the Moon Landing on the Lunar surface for yourself?

I should point out that at no time has NASA used the 'dress rehearsal' images in a fashion that suggests they were taken on the Moon. They may have been used subsequently by various authors in this way; for instance some astronauts have used 'staged' photos in their autobiographical works- but NASA are not responsible for these works.

In most cases - and especially since the Apollo missions - NASA have been very strict about not using 'retouching' on their official photos. You may find blank areas on many NASA images where the original data was lost or not obtained - but you won't find any 'copy-and-paste' in their official images. I'd be interested to see any examples of this since - say- Gemini.

Isn't Scarlett Moffatt an airhead? Case closed.
I watched Richard Ossman’s House of Games on BBC2 this week and was amazed at how she manages to walk and breathe at the same time. I was even more amazed when at the end of the week she had won the quiz...

Capricorn One was a good film.
I saw it when it came out and I have a great fondness for films with helicopter chases – and Telly Savalas (or 'savages' as spellchecker would have it) and Elliott Gould are usually good value.

I thought a remake was on its way but, with a bit of googling, that was proposed back in 2007-2008 after which things have gone very quiet. It would probably be shite anyway.

It was a good premise, but they did it on a budget - which shows.
Most films in 1977 were made on a shoestring budget though weren't they? Except for things like Star Wars.

I don't think that Star Wars' budget would seem very big these days, even adjusted for inflation.

Anyway, yes: Capricorn One was, and is, an excellent film. The reason for the fakery was convincing, I don't think the film suffered too much from its budget, and of course it had OJ Simpson in it! What more could you ask for?

Stuck in the school library on a very wet afternoon in 1975 I searched in vain for anything interesting to read. I picked up the Economist for the first and only time, which had an article (with stills) on a new film called Star Wars being made on a budget of $10 million. That was an insane amount of money to spend on a Sci Fi film in 75, the producer would never ever get the money back - but it got me all excited. I told me mates - new film - Star Wars - ten million - but only got suspicious looks: 'nah, well I ain't seen it'
Easier to end discussion and silently wait 2 years for it to be finally released than admit to having read a journal.

I've been in this position a few times myself, when I've told people about something I'd read. The reaction has usually been one of disbelief.
When I'm proved to be right, those people conveniently have a lapse of memory.

Dara Ó Briain is not happy about a BBC podcast by Scarlet Moffatt espousing the bollocks that the moon landing was a hoax (that's me laying my cards on the table). That said, I do love the film Capricorn One, which is one reason I suspect many people doubt that we landed on the moon.https://www.independent.co.uk/voice...-moon-landing-conspiracy-theory-a9675971.html
I enjoyed Capricorn 1 as well. That being said, having seen the lunar landing zone with a large telescope and done the lazer reflector test with friends, I know for certain that the moon landings were real.
