Apollo Redux


The Lunar Reconnaissance Orbiter has photographed Apollo landing sites. These aren't even at the full resolution that the LRO's imaging system is capable of, but clearly show LEM descent modules, scientific instruments, and even, in one case, a trail left by the astronauts. First time these sites have been seen in forty years, and a fine reminder that the moonlandings we're celebrating actually happened and left artifacts that may, in the Lunar vacuum, last hundreds of thousands of years.

You underestimate, Paul, the lengths the US Authorities were prepared to go to fake the moonlanding. It seems clear to me now that in order to simulate landing men on the moon they actually landed men on the moon, not once but several times. Those dogs.
