No doubt lots of taped footage and pre recordings were used to illustrate the ruse.............It's why the term " PRIME TIME " was coined.......anyway...all of this business must be entry level by now, yet some will always cling to the hopes and dreams of those who were most led astray.
Many people have concluded that this entire project was filmed on a mocked up moonscape............who dunit is the $64,000.00 question.
A few things to ponder:
http://covertoperations.blogspot.com/20 ... -moon.html
1) The now-canceled Constellation Program to go “back to” the moon was begun in 2005, and at the end, aimed for men on the moon by 2028. The Apollo program allegedly landed men on the Moon in a mere eight years. It shouldn’t take almost three times as long to get back to the Moon with today’s technology as it did in the 60’s!
2) “In May of 1966, after spending five years working on the Apollo project, we were just a-year-and-a-half away from the launch of the first Saturn V. In 2010, after spending five years working on the Constellation project, NASA has nothing to present to us but a hefty bill”
3) “If NASA returns to the moon in 2020 as planned, astronauts will step out in a brand-new space suit. It will give them new mobility and flexibility on the lunar surface while still protecting them from its harsh environment … The space agency has awarded a $500 million, 6.5-year contract for the design and development of the Constellation space suit.” Astronauts performing EVAs these days currently use something known as the Extravehicular Mobility Unit: “It has a hard upper torso, layers of material to protect astronauts from micrometeoroids and radiation, a temperature-regulation system, and its own life support and communication system. The EMU weighs over 300 pounds and has limited leg mobility – astronauts feet are normally locked in place on foot restraints while performing extravehicular tasks, and during Apollo missions, which used a different EMU suit, astronauts were forced to develop a bunny hop to traverse the lunar surface.” It is absurd that is takes about four times as long to develop a spacesuit now than it did back in the 1960s.
4) Wernher von Braunn, one of NASA’s chief rocket scientists, was a real Nazi
5) Nazi connection to MIT where idea of Apollo missions was developed
6) Computer programming for Apollo was critical for the mission but poorly specified according to one of the computer engineers. “Despite the overwhelming obstacles faced by the MIT team, and the seemingly lackadaisical approach taken with the project, the Apollo guidance system, as would be expected, performed nearly flawlessly on every outing.”
Here's guy who claims he knows how it was done and better yet....Who dunit..
NASA MOON LANDING FILMED IN NEVADA DESERT – New proof 1969 lunar feat was faked
Bill Kaysing, author of We Never Went to the Moon, America’s $30 Billion Swindle (Desert Publications, Cornville, Ariz.), says that NASA had neither the technology nor the resolve to rocket men to the moon but instead conspired to deceive the American public for one reason and one reason only: To keep the tax dollars flowing so the agency could stay in business.
“The moon program was a hoax,” declared Kaysing, former chief of technical productions at Rocketdyne Propulsion Laboratories, a rocket engine developer. “It was a $30 billion swindle,” he added. “The National Aeronautics and Space Administration staged the whole thing.”
NASA denies the allegations and insists that the agency sent men to the moon in mission after mission. But to prove his point, Kaysing notes that:
- No stars appear in any of the pictures that were allegedly taken from the moon nor were any mentioned by the astronauts. Because the moon has no atmosphere to diffuse their light, the stars should have looked spectacular.
- NASA has never released any photos in which the moon can be seen in relationship to planets other than Earth, because those relationships would be almost impossible to fake, said Kaysing.
I'd be curious if there is anyone who can explain the two lights upper left in the below pic..
How it was actually done!!!

How NASA pulled it off
The elaborate moon-landing hoax was produced just like a Hollywood movie with a realistic underground “set” that included phony moon terrain, vehicles and views of the planet Earth.
Sights and sounds from the spaceship Apollo, the lunar landing module and the astronauts on the moon were recorded on tape in Nevada months before the moon mission, according to Kaysing. The fake mission cost billions of dollars to simulate, but far less than a real flight might have.
Kaysing’s sources describe how the phony moon mission – code named ASP (Apollo Simulation Project) – created a giant base 32 miles east of Mercury, Nev., complete with landing strips, underground sets of moon terrain, scale models of the Earth, sun and moon and high-tech sound stages that rivaled those in Hollywood studios.
The isolated base was heavily guarded by a vast staff of highly-paid technicians, advisors and filmakers, along with thousands of support personnel. The astronauts, handpicked and specially trained for the project, were the star members of this staff.
A communications network of staggering proportions, designed to feed information from the phony moon mission to a gullible audience worldwide, was set into place. The network disseminated pre-recorded telecasts and radio broadcasts through cables and telephone wires connected to the antennae inputs of space communications centers around the world, including tracking stations in Australia, Africa and North America.
