Lunar landing "hoax" - enough already!

Written by Bob McCormick on 7/20/2009 10:15:00 PM

With the 40th anniversary of the 1st landing on the moon, you'd think that most folks would finally drop the lunar hoax conspiracy theory.

If they did, I think I'd shout "Whooppie"!

Or maybe I should just shout ... "Whoopi"?

You see, Whoopi Goldberg did it again. On the July 20th taping of ABC's "The View", Whoopi insinuated that NASA faked the moon landings, based on the obviously fictional movie "Capricorn One". Even Barbara Walters had to set her straight, with the weak "evidence" Whoopi Goldberg presented, since the landings were done SIX TIMES.

But in my opinion, I think the coolest "evidence" (as if I needed more) of the Apollo Lunar landings came from NASA's next attempt to get back to the Moon. Three days ago, NASA's Lunar Reconnaisssance Orbiter provided detailed images of the Lunar surface - images that are much more detailed than could have been obtained back in the Apollo years. As you can see from these photos, the LRO flew over the old Apollo landing sites, capturing images of the lunar descent stages still sitting on the landing sites!

Perhaps Whoopi Goldberg and her pseudo-intellectual "lunar hoax" crowd can argue with those images.
