Moon Landing Conspiracy Theories Debunked
On the 21st of June (in UTC time, 20 June in U.S. time) Apollo 11's Eagle lander landed on the Moon. Sadly, some people's lack of knowledge of lunar geography, space physics, and technological limitations has led to conspiracy theories stated the moon landings never happened. National Geographic has republished 8 Moon-Landing Hoax Myths--Busted which takes apart the main conspiracy theories. The website Bad Astronomy also has a detailed deconstruction of the conspiracy myths. Moon Base Clavius is a well researched website solely dedicated to debunking the conspiracy theories. Britian's Daily Telegraph also takes apart ten crazed ideas.
