Gizmodo strikes again!

I have a bit of trouble believing the fake moon landings nonsense is still around, but people being gullible about all the wrong things is hardly new. Anyway, if you run into one of them here's a bit of info about the history of video recording that ought to do the trick.

Why the Moon Landings Could Have Never EVER Been Faked: The Definitive Proof
Jesus Diaz nbsp; 

This video is so good, so incredibly brilliant, solid and simple, that you will want to paste it all over your Facebooks and Twitters just to piss off all the IMBECILES who still claim that the Moon landings were faked.* The reason is simple: the technology to fake it didn't exist.

I have a theory that conspiracy theorists are all clone robots built in a vacuum cleaner factory in Senegal.

Y'know, I'd have thought the Mythbusters episode on that very subject would have shut these idiots up for good.

Dopey me...

For all I know it has - this article is the first I've seen on the subject in years, and it's debunking the theory. Of course it's not like I've read everything.

Snarky take I like: The Moon landing was supposed to be faked. However, the director insisted on shooting on location.

Call me cynical, but I suspect that anyone who still honestly believes that the moon landings were faked are psychologically immune to having their opinions changed by any argument short of being personally taken to the moon and shown the footprints in the regolith. The accuracy and completeness of the evidence is, for them, irrelevant.

Indeed, when we laugh at "cheesy" special effects in Star Trek and other vintage SF, we forget that these were cutting edge at the time. It was why folks could suspend their disbelief for fiction. But not for the hours and hours of the actual Moon landing.

Thanks, I'll check this out on my laptop, it isn't viewable on my iPad. It should come in handy. I keep getting this conspiracy theory from my students!

Most convincing of all -- every communist nation on Earth would have LOVED to be able to point their antennas at the moon, hear only silence, and trumpet their discovery of the "hoax" to all who would listen.

But strangely enough, the Russians heard the radio traffic come from the moon too. And with their own space listening network, easily narrowed it down to the moon and not something floating in orbit (which is easily proven to not be from the moon because of the angles two separated antennas have to point for reception).

But there's no telling a conspiracy loon anything that differs from what he chooses to believe. So I have quit trying.
