Did We Fake the Moon Landing?

Was the moon landing all just a hoax? It depends on who you ask. Just a heads up, if you ask Buzz Aldrin, he will punch you in the face. Anyway, Adam and Connor talk about the moon landing on this episode! Give it a listen! And subscribe on iTunes!

Why is the flag fluttering in photos, when there’s supposedly no air? Why didn’t solar radiation kill the astronauts? How did they leave footprints when there’s no moisture in the soil? Why are there no stars in any of the photos? Why are there what appear to be the reflections of studio lights in one of the photos? Did Stanley Kubrick help design the fakes? We talk about all these questions and more (and NASA’s convenient explanations) on the episode!
