Submission + - The technology to fake the NASA Apollo moon landings did not exist in 1969 ( 2

MarkWhittington writes: "The notion that the Apollo moon landings were faked is one of the more pernicious conspiracy theories, suggesting that the greatest technological feat in human history was done in a movie studio, probably by the late Stanley Kubrick. The theory has been debunked by everyone from the Mythbusters to actual photographic evidence.

Now a Jan 18, 2013 piece by Gizmodo, along with a video, proves once and for all and for all time that the Apollo moon landings really happened. The reason is that while the technology to send men to the moon certainly existed in 1969, the technology to fake video footage of them doing so did not exist."
