How do the moon-landing debunkers even know the Van Allen belt is real? Have they been to the Van Allen belt themselves to measure the radiation levels?
I bought a van Allen Snake Skin belt once.
Pics, or it didn't happen.
How they got through Van Allen:
Traveling at around 25,000 mph, the astronauts would have
made it through the radiation in about an hour, receiving 1/25 of the radiation that is considered dangerous by the government.

For someone with your moniker, you're strangely reluctant to apply Ockham's Razor
to this question.
Explain the forged lunar photos of the landing site void the "Lander"?!
explain The "Starless sky?
Explain the crosshair flaws?
Explain the "Multi-directional shadows?
The radiation the astronauts brought home could have come from any irradiated location on earth.
Explain the illuminated rear of the "Lander"
Explain the video speed irregularity (Should appear to be as on earth at *6, instead at *2?
Thank you Bill.
Have a great day!
Now come the Lunar Conspiracy, where so called experts have "proof" that the
moon landings were filmed in a secret movie studio in area 51. Now, I can't go
into all of the FOX details, but I will explain a few of them, and then give you
a web site where you can actually prove FOX wrong, on all of their claims. Here
is the proof, according to FOX, (in Italics), that we didn't land on the Moon.
Almost 20% of the American public believes that we didn't go to the Moon.
A Gallop poll taken in 1999, and a CNN poll taken in 1995, indicate that 6% of
the public believes that we did not go to the moon. By the way, that is the same
percentage of people that don't believe in God. And according to Gallop, 6% is
the amount of people that believe in ANY poll of ANY question that is asked to
them, indicating that the belief is NOT widespread.
There was no blast crater under the LM so we didn't land there.
reality, there should NOT be a blast crater. The LM descent engine was made to
slow the craft down, and not blast off. Since it only generated 1050 pounds of
thrust (not 10,000 lbs like FOX said), and the gravity on the Moon is less, and
the engines were shut off BEFORE impact, there can't be a blast crater.
Since the stars were not visible in the photographs, it proved they were not on
FACT: With the Lunar landscape lit brightly from the Sun, the
photographs were very fast, and the aperture had to be closed down. Stars would
not appear in the photos because the stars would be too faint to register on the
film. If you take a photo here on Earth, under the same conditions, the stars
would not appear in your photos.
The flag was waving, caused by the breeze in the studio where it was filmed.
The Moon has no air, so a flag cannot wave.
FACT: The astronaut was setting up the flag, and shaking the pole that it was attached to. A flag DOES wave in a vacuum.
There were shadows on the Moon going in different directions; proof that there
was more than one light source. There is only one light source on the Moon, and
that's the Sun.
FACT: There are TWO light sources on the Moon. The Sun is one of
them, and the Earth is the other. On the Moon, the Earth would appear as almost
"Full", and would actually shed more light on the Moon, than the "Full" Moon
does on the Earth.
Astronauts would have been burned to death from the radiation in the Van Allen
FACT: Traveling at around 25,000 mph, the astronauts would have
made it through the radiation in about an hour, receiving 1/25 of the radiation
that is considered dangerous by the government.
O. K., I have said enough. Hey at the end of the X-Files, the ONLY good program
that FOX has, the slogan is "The Truth Is Out There". Well, it may be, but it
sure as heck isn't on FOX!
If you want more information on this so called "Lunar Conspiracy", visit the
following web sites known as "Bad Astronomy" by astronomer Phil Plait, "Comments On The Fox Moonlanding Hoax Special" by Jim Scotti from the University of Arizona, and "Moonhoax". None of these sites are run by NASA, but for their view on this, go to "The Great Moon Hoax".
Explain how you know that an actual person wrote these words?
This single youtube video blows your "proof" out of the water.
So this is a monologue, not a dialogue?

Why not find out yourself? Appollo 11 installed an array of rear-reflectors on the moon so that astronomers on the earth can measure the distance between Earth and Moon with about a centimeter's precision.
So why don't you buy yourself a strong well-focused, pulsed laser, point it at the Apollo landing site, focus on the site with a camera sensitive enough to catch the reflection of your laser's pulse from the array, and see if you can get a signal. Based on my experience as a former laser physicist, I'd say the project will cost you about $20,000 in parts, plus a couple of months' labor by a physicist you trust. It's not a cheap project, but definitely within the means of an individual who cares to find out.
Oh, and to answer Mark's question: Yes, Neil Armstrong really did set foot on the moon on July 20, 1969.
ACtually it was July 21 (LDST). He was in a different time zone on the moon.
by a physicist you trust
If he had one of those, he wouldn't need to run the experiment.
Occom Bill, if you're not interested in running your own experiment in laser physics, you could just read up on the Lunar Laser Ranging experiment
. I suggest you start with the sources in Wikipedia's article on the subject. I don't really trust WIkipedia itself, though this page happens to be a fairly good summary.
