    I believe they were fake also. My main reason is due to the fact that technology has advanced by quantum leaps and bounds since we first supposedly landed on the moon, but have yet to return. Why have we not returned? Maybe it's because we have never been there.

    At the time it was a technology race with Russia. The moon was a finish line, and we had to beat them there. Since then the focus of the space program has changed dramaticly and NASA budgets have been slashed.

    If you really understand the history of the USA and the Cold War, it makes perfect sense.

Sure is lucky, that NASA still has the H-blad images. I notice that the image of the landing foot shows that there wasn't any moon dust on the landing pad.
    Why would there be dust on the landing pads? There is no atmosphere to kick up dust.

    Personally would find NOT going to the moon to be more unbelievable. The amount of people required to propogate the hoax would be unsurmountable. Why so many people would take that to their grave is beyond me.

    There would just be too many people involved to keep the secret.

    Excellent point. In fact I started to mention that in my response, but thought it not necessary because I find it hard to believe that we or any other continent have landed on the moon based on the fact that no one has been back in decades.

    But my opinion has nothing to do with what the O.P. has written so I will stop here as a means of saving the thread before it is taken down the wrong path.

    Didn't they do some sort of 'snip' processing step to tweak the density of the Ektachrome?

    Anybody interested in this *needs* to check out the book "Full Moon", edited by photographer Michael Light.

    http://www.michaellight.net/fullmoon/

    It blew me away when I saw it at the Craig Krull Gallery in Los Angeles.

    The arguments about the US never having really landed on the moon fail in the face of experiments left on the moon
    when the crews left. One of these were devices that allowed laser beams to be fired from earth the moon for the
    purposes of measuring the distance between the two. I believe there several such devices left. On, the moon is moving away from Earth and in a few million years will be so far away that it will no longer control the tides. So sell that beach front property now, before major flooding occurs. Another thing to consider, there were several instances where radio hams listened in on the "private channels" while the crews were headed for the moon. Another, experiment left on the surface were seismic detectors to determine the core density of the Moon. They read the shock wave when the blast off occurred. Believe they lasted for a few years and provided readings from the moon. Would also agree that the USSR would have publicized and "fake" activity if it was there. Was stationed in Germany
    during the mid to late 60's and Army units were always at state of "war footing" waiting for the "bear". They were looking for any reason to embarrass the US. If you can find this book in a used book store buy it makes for a good "read". It is called "Secrets of Our Spaceship Moon" by Don Wilson ISBN 0-440-16550-4. Raised quite a stir when it came out in 1979. Guess we'll just have to wait for the "greys" to show up and explain all.

    Much has been made of this in the past couple of days. Conspiracy theories aside, the tapes in question were of a non-standard format consisting of images transmitted to two earth locations. At these locations, the non-standard format was converted. It's not hard to believe that at some point someone determined these original, non-standard tapes were of little value since no one else could read them. Of course, considerable technology could be applied to them today, but this technology didn't exist at the time.

    I watched the landing, had just returned from overseas. I was impressed, grainy images and all.
    WYSIWYG - At least that's my goal.

    Go here:

    Or here:

    http://www.apolloarchive.com/apollo_gallery.html

    For information about the Hasselblad(s) and the moon photos available prior to this recent restoration.

    On another tack, those that disbelieve that men walked on the moon, well, I have to say that I rank you all lower than those who use digital. There is too much evidence to the contrary to even support an iota of truth in your beliefs that it was all fakery.

    A friend at McDonald Observatory gave the best refutation of claims of fakery. How did the laser retroreflectors, that had to be unpacked and assembled, get up there? McDonald Obs has been firing lasers up there since a week after Apollo 11's visit.
