y does every one say they have been? they have only been once. All the other Apollos where just going into space not to the moon.
No Apollo 13 was not faked none of the lunches were. They only launched into space not to the moon.
I don't no how they fooled the Russians no one rely does.
now here is the main reason y i think that they did not go to the moon. Okey so does everyone know what the radiation belt is? it is a belt of very strong radiation coming from the sun and it is between the moon and earth. Now there suits where not suited to withstand that much radiation. and nether was there ship. so if they did go to the moon they probably would have died before getting back to earth or soon after. They where using Hard sheld suits which are prity much like armor. But the only thing that was invented at that time that could stop radiation where 'heavy metals' like led. As all heavy metals are poisonous to humans they could not use them in the construction of the suits or the ship.
The radiation belt you speak of is the Van Allen radiation belt. It was discovered in 1958 by a scientist in the University of Iowa, in correlation to the Explorer 1 and 3 Missions (and when I say discovered I mean confirmed to exist.). The plasma particles from this belt cannot penetrate more than 1mm of lead. Giving the fact that the lunar landing was in 1969, 11 years later, I feel that during this time preparations would have been made to prevent this little "snag". Lead may be poisonous to the human body, however it can still be used in many things that are used today. Radiologists use lead suits on female patients, so I figure that during that 11 year period NASA figured a way to "rig up" some way to keep our space cowboys free from any harmful radiation.
