my best guess to date is that apollo missions flew around the moon, maybe also landed with astronauts, but there is something faked in photo and video documentation; if men didnt land, maybe some robotic rovers roamed around, if they landed, a lot of the material was shooted on earth studios; and the main hint to me is the inconsistent performing of jumps and acrobatics on the surface.

The "inconsistent" acrobatics were due to the 1/6 gravity. Plus, that was their very first practice session.
hi billslugg, yes but there are a lot of considerations to make in this regard, as i have already said other times i have started an original nice research on this topic which i hope to complete when i have identified the right collaborator for the mathematical part. Furthermore, i haven't forgotten about the question of solar cycles which was left open with you, as soon as i have some time i will answer you as promised.

If NASA was faking the human part of the Moon landing, I think that NASA would have done a retake of Neil Armstrong's obviously pre-planned but flubbed line about "One small step for [omitted 'a'] man - one giant leap for mankind!" They sure tried to talk their way around it as being just a data dropout in the voice transmission to Earth, but the cadence of the spoken sentence makes that seem impossible.

Not that I criticize Armstrong for making the flub. Considering the circumstances, I probably would have just said something more like "Wow!!!" if I could have spoken at all in such a moment.

The article is fine, as usual with Space.com. I saw the trailer and I was very disappointed that Apple Studios would reinforce this old, repugnant conspiracy theory. I made a post to that effect on AppleTV's X account and I urge every one to do that. I'm retired now, but was at Northwestern as an astronomy major when Apollo launched. I knew lots of NASA people - my NU advisor was a scientist astronaut. I worked on the Hubble project and knew people who received moon rocks gathered by Apollo, etc. This is especially offensive to me.
