The mother of all conspiracy theories? Oh marvellous!

I have yet to see a shred of evidence supporting said theories that I find to be even remotely convincing.

Where’s Dosser these days, he loved a good conspiracy theory. 9/11 being a completely ludicrous example I seem to remember

Dosser's probably been picked up by the Illuminati by now.

I remember the space race vividly, it was so exciting when the Soviets launched Sputnik, Yuri Gagarin and then Valentina Tereshkova were heroes of mine.

Then the Yanks got involved, and to be fair they did seem to have sexier kit, I suppose the advantages of getting Werner Von Braun and his Nazi chums on board.

We also had a 50's, 60's space program, more British, but our early 70's economic demise which saw the Tories move to join the incipient EU, put paid to it.  Some of our stuff is in store up at Wroughton....

I recently had a decent debate with a couple of youngish lads, about whether the whole US moon landing campaign was faked, a conspiracy.  I was sufficiently impressed by their case to move to major scepticism... knowing now of how America's political/industrial/military complex works adds fuel to that fire.  What say you Flasher  Hmmm

They should chat to Buzz Aldrin about that.

Funny how this experiment (which is hinged on equipment that was placed on the moon during the Apollo 11 mission) came online at exactly the time the astronauts were supposed to be there.

Not forgetting heroic Laika as well.
Or "Muttnik" as labelled by the Yanks.

The Soviets put up similar kit by robot... the French bounced a laser off their > 40 year old Lunokhod rover just a few years back.

Yep. Kerosene. Which is derived from oil.
