Mythbusters to take on the Moon Landing Hoax

I’ve had a number of discussions with those who are convinced that the Apollo moon landings were hoaxes over the past few years, and I’ve got to say that I’m unimpressed. And, after looking into the claims of the “experts” who are selling this story, I’m even less impressed.

To be honest, the 9/11 conspiracy theorists seem to be a lot more credible and have a lot more genuine supporting evidence than the moon landing hoax backers.

All that said, I am also not overly impressed with Mythbusters. It’s certainly entertaining, and it’s not devoid of science and investigation. But it’s basically a bunch of guys trying stuff. Cool, but I don’t usually put a whole lot of stock into their conclusions.

Still, I will check out this episode if I get a chance. It airs on August 27th.

  1. I don’t believe in the ‘moon landing hoax’ primarily because I don’t want to have Buzz Aldrin punch me in the face.

  2. Moon-hoaxers rank somewhere below Young-Earth Creationists in my book. They don’t even have the ‘God can do whatever He wants’ argument to hide behind. Yes, I’ll be looking forward to this one… As if I needed an excuse to watch Mythbusters in the first place. In their defense, http://xkcd.com/397/
