Considering how popular the moon landing hoax conspiracy is, I decided to post this episode of Mythbusters that’s dealing in disproving the hoax theories. Some things that Mythbusters tackled here include: photographs with non-parallel shadows, unnatural lighting of the astronaut standing in shadow and flag in vacuum. To test this, they built a much larger scale (1:6) replica of the landing site, including a dust surface with a color and albedo similar to lunar soil. Also they fired a laser into a retro-reflector placed at the landing site of the Apollo 15, thus confirming it’s presence there.
