Moon landing conspiracy theories

On 20 July 1969 Apollo 11 landed on the Moon. However, some people insist that the United States faked the landing in film studios here on Earth. They argue that photos of the mission aren't real, radiation from the Sun would have killed the astronauts and NASA didn't have the ability to return a man safely from the Moon.

The videos in this collection examine the Moon landing conspiracy theories and highlight the opposing evidence, which proves astronauts really did walk on the Moon.
