I don't think the ABANDON EARTH line of thinking will get us very far -- we had better work with what we have here -- since trash and run won't take us anywhere.

Very few people seem aware of how much technology came out of the lunar program -- there are very few things in the modern home -- including the screen and computer you are looking at that don't owe a large part of the their development to the APOLLO program and the innovation it required. True it all would have come along at some point -- but the time line and characteristics could have been quite different. The space program framed the world in a very global context -- paving the way for the culture of global trade and travel we have today.

I'm not convinced it was faked


I'm glad to hear that. I've looked at much of the so-called evidence, and in my experience so much of it is only persuasive until you look into it closely, and realise that most of it relies on people's ignorance of specialised subjects, for example the behaviour of photographic film, and the behaviour of materials in a vacuum.

But for me, as an amateur student of human nature, I am only too aware at how difficult it is to keep a secret, even amongst a relatively tiny group of people. I find it almost impossible to believe that a secret of that magnitude could be successfully concealed by that many people, for 40 years, and that the Russian scientists would have been fooled by trickery on matters of telemetry etc when it would have been in their interest to expose a hoax.
