Episode 44: Independent Evidence the Apollo Moon Landings Were Real

Episode 44 has been posted, a tad early. I recorded this episode almost a week ago, and I’m posting it now roughly on time, though a bit early, when I happen to have internet at this conference where it costs $13/day/device (yes, seriously).

Anyway, this episode ended up being surprisingly short even though I go through four of the primary ways that I use to demonstrate that people really landed on the Moon with the Apollo program (I would say “prove” but I’m very cautious using that word these days — real “proof” only comes in mathematics). The four methods I use are ultraviolet photos of stars, the rocks, lunar laser ranging, and actual photos of the sites from lunar orbit.

There’s also a Q&A, puzzler (solution to last puzzler and this one will be in July 24th’s episode), and the main segment. Otherwise, that’s about it and perhaps why it came in at about 21 minutes.



  1. The latest LRO photos actually are doing the opposite from providing “Proof” that Apollo Astro-nots landed on the moon. Please watch the latest Jarrah White youtubes on the subject and you will see that NASA is indeed getting brash and lazy in their phony attempts to prove these pictures show whats left of the lunar landing sites… Now NASA wants to create a no-fly zone over the sites to prevent other less than friendly nations flying over with hi – res photos to prove nothing is there!!!!!

  2. Hi Stuart! I enjoyed listening to your podcast Episode 44 about the alleged Apollo moon landing hoax. Do you have any response to claims about the dangers of radiation from the Van Allen belt to the U.S. astronauts in their space capsule and in their spacesuits during their moonwalks? I’ve been advised the walls of the capsule weren’t thick enough to shield from deadly radiation. Would you be able to quantify the dangers posed by the radiation in the Van Allen Belt? Thanks in advance.

  3. Hi Stuart,

    I have found a website discussing the Apollo 16 UV photographs and the problems resulting from the loss of documentation covering the file format used for them when they were digitized in the 1970s.

    • Int’resting. What’s amazing to us today is how little they were into careful archiving back then.

  4. Hi again Stuart,

    Found a page covering a man who built his own antenna and listened to the Apollo 11 astronauts while they were on the moon, aside from the surviving recordings, the page also covers the various details that confirmed he was indeed listening to the astronauts on the moon.

    • Neat. Though I also thought that there were many amateurs all over the world at the time listening in?
