Conspiracy Theory - Did we land on the Moon?

Star world ran this program on Saturday 9:00 PM. It almost made me believe we did not land on the moon. Then I saw the http://www.braeunig.us/space/hoax.htm and I am a bit confused now by both claims.

NASA also has an interesting site http://science.nasa.gov/headlines/y2001/ast23feb_2.htm?list45245. I think I am going to believe again that we landed on the Moon until the next space vehicle to orbit the moon finds/proves that we did not go to the moon.

What I have found so far is that people believe strongly. A believer is not open to changing his mind and vice-versa.

I don't think that we ever landed on the moon, given the facts in the program. The proof is quite strong enough to support the statement

Yes, but conspirators are also very good at confusing people. We must hear the other side as well, hence I give them the benefit of the doubt.

More fun things, this time with some visualisation of what happens when memoisation is used and what happens when we don't. I don'...
