Re: The most expensive dick swinging contest in history

At the height of the cold war, the Russians tracked Apollo every inch of the way to the Moon, any fakery would have Pravda screaming huge headlines about it. We can still detect the laser retro reflectors left on the surface, Pictures of the landing sites and tracks of the later Lunar rovers have been seen by a recent Lunar orbiter. Also with over 400,000 engineers and technicians involved how can you expect them ALL to keep a secret like that for 50 years???
