We Recreated The Moon Landing To See If It Really Happened

Fifty years after Star Trek debuted on TV, Star Trek: Axanar was made by fans to much higher standards. So it only makes sense that everyday people could recreate the moon landing with the latest movie sets and video effects, right? Or maybe it’s not so easy.

Why do people still have doubts that the moon landing really happened? Mostly because it was such an amazing accomplishment. And because the people that populate the internet tend to be too young to remember it. That same internet feeds conspiracy theories about everything being either fake or controlled behind the scenes. The truth is that we had the technology to go to the moon in 1969, but we didn’t have the technology necessary to fake it. -Thanks, Ricky Sans!

While an interesting challenge, they quote conspiracy theorists as saying "documentation of the Apollo missions is only available through NASA". This is incorrect. https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Third-party_evidence_for_Apollo_Moon_landings lists third-party evidence for Apollo Moon landings, including by a radio ham in Kentucky, http://legacy.jefferson.kctcs.edu/observatory/apollo11/ . Also, the theorists are at odds. A different set of theorists say the Apollo 11 astronauts saw alien spacecraft, and while that report was suppressed in the official transmission, they say it was picked up by hams.
