Yes there are some people who think the Moon Landings were a big hoax. Yawn. But of course it did happen and the USA sent several missions there from Apollo 11 to Apollo 17 (Apollo 13 didn’t land due to an explosion in the Command Module).
The Lunar Reconnaissance Orbiter Camera has been ‘orbiting’ the moon now for over 900 days and taking high resolution shots of the surface and the landing sites where snapped last year and released to the public.
Last week NASA released new shots of the landings and of one of the USSR rovers. The one in this blog is of the Apollo 11 site (click on it to get the full photo) and shows the remnants of Armstrong and Aldrin’s historic first steps on the surface are seen as dark paths around the Lunar Module (LM), Lunar Ranging RetroReflector (LRRR) and Passive Seismic Experiment Package (PSEP), as well as leading to and from Little West crater.

Yes They Did Land On The Moon
7th September 2011
Since the moon landings in the late 60’s and early 70’s, there has been constant stories from conspiracy nuts about how all the moon landings were faked and actually filmed in a Studio in Area 51 in Nevada. If they were faked then how come the USSR didn’t say anything? How can you keep a secret with hundreds of thousands of people working in NASA and companies associated with the program at the time? Well you don’t, and the USSR didn’t say anything as they knew it was true.
A week ago NASA released new images of the landing sites which show footprints, tracks from the buggy, equipment and even the Lunar lander stage that was left on each site.
The image made available by NASA shows paths left by walking astronauts, single lines, and lunar buggy tracks, parallel lines, from the 1972 U.S. Apollo 17 moon mission. NASA’s Lunar Reconnaissance Orbiter made this and other photographs of lunar landing sites from 13 to 15 miles above the moon’s surface.

These photos seen here (click on them to make them larger) show conclusive proof that we were on the moon. Maybe now the conspiracy nuts will shut up.
