I said that once... "Go back get the camera's and sell them". I am guessing it would cost More than 12 Billion to collect all 12. I have little doubt they they would still work... that is if they had batteries.
BTW... I met and to some extent know Armstong and Cernan. I have no doubt that we went to the moon. I personally have heard Cernan address the doubter's his conviction is the same as a father defending his daughter's honor.
If we had "faked" going to the moon... would we have done so good of job?! That's my opinion.
I wonder if there will ever be a Bronica on the moon.
Probably not. There was almost a Nikon digicompact thing up there after I tried it and realised that twenty years of "progress" had produced something only slightly smaller than my Pentax ME Super but without the image quality...
The Hasselblads might well still work, it depends on how the moon dust has treated them. I know there's a credible theory that the "one small step for a man" was probably obliterated by the ascent stage of the LEM, which would have blown dust around for a considerable distance.
