I'm new to this board, so Hello, all!
I newly disabled/retired, so I have a lot of time on my hands and I've recently developed an interest in conspiracy theories of various sorts. Please note that I'm not especially interested in *subscribing* to any of the theories I've heard - none I've heard so far seem very rational. I realize I'm a little late to the party, but I still find the whole "moon hoax" theory interesting. I've actually heard the fakery notion since 1969, but that was mostly from older folks who didn't believe a rocket could work in outer space, with "nothing to push against".
At any rate, I have a question for other posters:
Has there been anyone who actually has legitimate credentials in this area who has come out supporting the Apollo hoax theory? Living and dead, it seems the primary advocates have been a kid with some training in film making, an English major/corporate librarian, and a "self-taught" physicist and engineer (when my daughter, who has a Master's in Engineering Physics, heard about that she was quite put out at the thought of all the time she wasted in school).
But have any actual aerospace engineers, professional astronomers, etc been supportive of the hoax theory? In any profession, there are usually at least a few "nut cases", but I don't think I know of any in this case and was wondering if there's just something I missed.
Any replies are appreciated. Thanks, all!
