Hey Astronomy Gurus,
Yesterday at a family get-together, one of my cousins said he thought the Apollo landings were staged, which frankly made me laugh. But, being an inquiring mind and not wanting to dismiss the whole thing without at least some research, I started browsing around the web today.
Apparently this is a much bigger deal than I initially thought, but I still believe we landed on the moon after looking at a variety of information sources, including some links from posts on this board.
Now, I was wondering if there are photos of the Apollo landing sites that have been taken from earth. It seems to me that would be another useful bullet in the fight against unfounded conspiracy theories. Does anyone know of somewhere I could find these kinds of photos? I haven't had any luck so far.
I would think that it would be possible with today's telescope technology to view and photograph objects like the landing platforms, lunar rover, and maybe even one of the knocked-over flags.
