Re: [Science] Moon landing Hoax (fwd)

I am currently teaching about the History of the Space Program. Many of my
students viewed that TV special on Fox 59 last week and now are arguing
that we did not really land on the moon. I do not have what I call 'good
proof' that it was not a hoax to counter what that show said in regard to:
the different direction of shadows
the American flag was waving in one of the clips they showed
and finally the show said that the astronauts needed to have 6 feet
thick steel to protect them from the radiation.
I can tell them other evidence of proof but cannot sufficiently counter the
clips and examples they showed. Can anyone help with facts to counter this
stupid show? Thanks, Barbara

There was a show on, I believe, the Family Channel, which
investigated things like this. Unfortunately, I've forgotten the name.
In fact, during one 1 hr program, they discussed extensively the moon
landing hoax, first by presenting the evidence supporting the hoax theory,
and then they methodically debunked this "evidence." This was a superb
program which, of course, meant that it lasted only about 6 weeks.
