I understand the reason for the faking of the moonshots. But the cold war is over, and the time for truth is now. There are too many lies being told to taxpaying citizens who have the right to hear the truth.
Because anyone who knows even the rudimentary aspects of physics, photography, and the deadly radiation in space within, and beyond our magnetosphere, KNOWS it was faked.
If you would like part of my upcoming book in an PM which will explain it quite succinctly, I'd be more than glad to pop one off....
It's great if we did make it. I understand their reasoning behind faking it at that time if we didn't, we were in Vietnam and at the height of the cold war, failing to make it would make us weak and damage moral out look in our country.
