Is it true that the 1969 Moon landing is actually a hoax and never happened?

Is there evidence out there to just prove it was real or evidence that proves it was fake?
Russians say it happened. They tracked something that took off in Florida, and landed on the moon. They can't tell if there were humans in the craft, but they are certain the craft took off in Florida, and landed on the Moon, in July of 1969. Took off again, and landed on Earth. That is the biggest proof I can come up with.

No, we definitely went to the moon. If you would ever actually look at real scientific sources that completely refute the hoaxes, you might see the truth.
We went to the Moon six times between 1969 and 1972. There is copious evidence to support this fact (Moon rocks we brought back, reflectors left behind you can bounce a laser off of, thousands of hours of video and photographic footage that couldn't be faked at that time, we were tracked all the way there and back by the Soviet Union) and nothing against it - all the conspiracy theories against landing on the Moon can be debunked by a high school physics student. They represent a poor understanding of basic science.
Anyone who has told you otherwise, has probably given you a lame excuse about flag movement, shadow issues, "no stars" inthe photos, and other nonsense that can easily be debunked at Calvius Moon Base:
It really saddens me that so many of these questions come up, when a two week understanding in simple physics and photography seal the deal.
we watched a video in school proving that it was real, all the debating questions like why was the american flag waving in the video was backed by scientific explanations.
you earthlings really did land on your moon in your year 1969. we watched it from our ship. we saw the whole landing.
no, we really went to the moon you crazy conspirator.
There were actually two Moon landings in 1969, Apollo 11 in July and Apollo 12 in November. These landings were real and so were the four subsequent landings. There's plenty of information available about the Apollo missions if you know where to look.
Moon landings are real. I met astronauts, inspected a moon rock up close. Plenty of evidence about all of it exists. No explanations supporting a hoax stand up to inspection. See the Mythbusters show on Discovery channel about that.
Tooth fairy, Easter bunny, Santa (oops, better not go there, you might be less than 9 years old) are not real.
People who like to believe in hoaxes (as opposed to harmless fantasy) are delusional, and opposed to reality.

It was real.
The six Apollo Moon landings are among the best documented events in human history: thousands of pictures, hours of video, nearly half a ton of Moon rocks, and millions of eye witnesses, including myself. There is not a single scientist in the world who doubts that they took place. To deny them is to discredit the magnificent achievement of the team which went to the Moon, and to reveal abysmal scientific ignorance.
The proofs of the Moon landings have been documented in detail on web sites like these:
If further proof is needed, NASA today released images from the Lunar Reconnaissance Orbiter showing 5 of the 6 Apollo landers, still on the surface of the Moon:
There is plenty of evidence that the landing was real. The evidence I like to use comes from outside NASA and even outside USA.
The Soviet Union were, at the time, our adversaries in the space race, and our enemies in the political world (the world was being polarized by the two "super-powers", in order to gain control).
They were ahead of us in ALL aspects of the space race up to that point (first in orbit, first man in space, first woman in space, first soft-landing on the Moon with an unmanned probe, and so on). They also had no reason to make life easy for us (we were building enough weapons of mass destruction to eliminate them ten times over, forcing them to build enough weapons to destroy us ten times over).
They had spies in all aspects of our lives (including in the space program). They had spy ships (disguised as fishing boats) near the launch areas for every rocket launch (Cuba is very close to Florida).
They could use their radio-telescopes to pick up our radio (and TV) communications from space.
When Neil took the "small step for [a] Man", the Moon was over the Pacific Ocean. This meant that the TV signal we got (the slow-scan signal) had to come through a radiotelescope in Australia.
This means that the TV signal was also visible to the Soviet radiotelescopes (they are on the same longitudes, roughly).
After the lunar landing, they congratulated us. Maybe not very loudly, but still.
If they had had any hint that the thing had been faked, they would have told the whole world right away. Given their record in space up to that point, the world would have believed them, not us. The "cover-up" would not have lasted one hour, never mind 40 years.
Even the Soviets knew (and accepted) that the 1969 Moon Landing was real.
The TV image we saw was "manipulated"... But not the way conspirators describe.
The signal that came from the Moon was "SSTV" -- slow scan TV at 10 frames per second, 320 lines per frame.
When it arrived at the radiotelescopes (three were used to produce the images we saw on TV), the signal had to be cleaned up -- it was "noisy" from interference -- and turned into images suitable for North American TV (30 frames per second, 525 lines per frame)**. Contrast and brilliance kept changing and someone had to try and keep up, leading to moments when the image appeared too black, too white or even reversed (including a few "upside-down" seconds near the beginning).
Most of the images we saw on TV were the ones that came in through the Parkes radiotelescope in Australia, where the "manipulation" was done by a radiotelescope technician, not a TV broadcast specialist.
** It was actually even more complicated than that. Because color TV was already in existence, and it required more info to be sent, the North American standard was to send two "half-images" instead of one image at a time, and the rate was actually 29.97 full frames (or 59.94 half-frames) per second, in order to reduce interference.
The "manipulation" done in Australia was being done in a country using a system of 25 frames per second and a different number of lines per frame.
It's a wonder we got anything at all. And it certainly explains why some of it looked... weird.
Of course, the US TV networks would add "simulations" at time to show what was really going on (because the real images were not always that clear).
Oh god, how long are we going to have to deal with this now? At least it seems to have replaced the "2012" BS on here.
Believe what you want, I cannot help you. However for ONE PIECE of hardware on the moon every conspiracy theory hoax person needs to explain "how it got on the surface of the moon".
"How did this mirror get on the surface of the moon pointed straight at Earth?"
We still use it to bounce laser beams off of and determine the moon's distance to a high degree of accuracy.
Ask them all to explain how it got there!
Don't forget there were SIX landings not just one, AND we now have PICTURES!
When the astronauts landed on the moon they left man made "spectrometers" on its surface. These spectromoters have been identified via reflective lazer since the landing. Mythbusters did an excellent story on proving/disproving the moon landing.
Yes. Also the earth is flat and all the stuff NASA puts out is government hogwash.
They make phony movies of it all, don't believe any of it.
There was a documentary that i watched that showed evidence supposedly disproving it.
BUT im sorry i cant remember the name of the documentary.
The only way to find out is to work for the government and be quite high up.
Personlly, I think it hapenned.
No. The TV images projected were a mix of real shots and stagework, leading to speculation that it was faked.
Satellite images from multiple nations have recording images of equipment left behind by the Apollo missions, including nations not friendly to the US, such as the USSR when it existed.
yes it is, didnt you know , it was just one big joke taken to far
Yeah, alot of people believe it is fake because they say the flag should not be swaying because there should not be wind in space.
