    Jumping ahead a few days, where were folks when Armstrong stepped onto the lunar surface? It was 10:56pm EDT. I was 7 years old, on our family room floor, my parents desperately trying to keep me from falling asleep. I have vague memories of it.

    too young to remember but I have a dear friend that is fully under the spell that Apollo 11 was a hollywood staged event. Depression is the feeling you get when you realize that people you know, that are not on drugs, of sound mind and body can still fall under a svenghali conspiracy mind grip !

    If it was faked dozens of people would have had to have known about it. There is no way that none of these people would have all kept quiet about such a deception when they could make a lot of money selling their story.

    having to argue with him and present the evidence only exacerbates the depression.

    Indeed, the Russians even participated in the Apollo -Soyuz space show. The conspiratorialists have not postulated just a US federal fraud but an international dual superpower conspiracy lasting 40 years.

    Not to mention that they would never have been able to fake it 7 times without having their entire cover blown at one point or another.

    The diversion of making up a story about almost losing 3 'nauts was REALLY good too.
