Mythbusters to tackle the moon landing myth

Conspiracy theorists straps yourselves in. The Mythbusters team are set to tackle the moon landing hoax myth.

The team performed their tests at the Marshall Space Flight Centre which has a vacuum chamber. According to the Bad Astronomer, "they’ll be recreating Dave Scott’s famous feather and hammer drop from Apollo 15, as well as the hoax claim that dry lunar regolith can’t hold a footprint, and how the flag can wave in a vacuum."

No word yet on what the outcome was, but there is this short NSAV video about the visit. The program will air in the US on April 25 2008.

You do realize that it is actually getting aired is because they show that we did land on the moon. I have no doubts that the US government made damn sure of that. I am not one for black helicopters or wearing a tin foil hat, but I used to work for those people and you don't get to go public if your proving them wrong.

Excellent! I love these guys.

The moon landing has always been a bit of a silly myth. With all the scrutiny Russia had the operation under, don't you think they'd have noticed the signal was being transmitted from the US, and not the moon?

Do you actually think the U.S Government are going to ALLOW a T.V series to completely debunk this?, if you do then your an absolute fool for beleiving in the first place.

In 2001 Fox aired a program that claimed that the moon landing was fake, so apparently the government does allow these programs to be aired. If you intend to show that the lunar landing was fake then you will need hard evidence, and so far the only evidence that conspiracy theorists have provided is of their own ignorance of basic principles of engineering, physics, and photography.

Hmm considering the soviet presence at the time (as noted by Rodney) , the sheer logistics of putting it all together, the amount of government departments involved, the time factor (from then till now) and the huge amount of people to keep quiet for so long, the process and cost of buiding and launching enormous rockets into space. As stated by Arkady "the only evidence that conspiracy theorists have provided is of their own ignorance of basic principles of engineering, physics, and photography. "
No time for this one.
