Capricorn One Was Fiction
We are approaching the 40th anniversary of Apollo 11 and some people think we still haven't gone to the moon yet, even during the Apollo mission.
I have seen every charge (that I am aware of) leveled by those who believe the moonlandings were staged convincingly answered from various sources, but I have my own objection to the conspiracy theory.
Twelve men have walked on the moon. Others were involved in such a way that they would have known about a hoax. There would have been dozens if not hundreds of people who would have known that it was fake. All it would take is for one of them to talk. If it were a hoax it would be worth millions to the whistle blower. None of them have, and unlike Capricorn One, no one has tried to kill an astronaut to keep them from talking. A couple of the astronauts have died and no deathbed confessions of a hoax. By now someone on the inside would have talked.
Furthermore would we have fooled Russian scientists who were watching the Apollo landings very closely?
I do sort of wonder though, had the Soviets won the race to the moon would these questions be asked? Perhaps. Perhaps not. Perhaps by different people. (Link shows intentions and prototypes of the Soviet LK Lander.)
We are approaching the 40th anniversary of one the greatest human triumphs in history.
