The Stupid People

Who still believe that the Moon landings never happened, who still believe that a project that encompassed thousands of people including subcontractors could possibly be kept quiet for 40 damned years ...

Will not be swayed by the photograph above.

This picture was taken by the Lunar Reconnaissance Orbiter over the Sea of Tranquility. It shows, quite clearly, the descent stage of the Apollo 11 Lunar Excursion Module, or LEM. You can see by the shadow and its brightness that it is not a natural formation. Subsequent pictures may show whether the American flag erected by Armstrong and Aldrin fell over from the ascent stage's blast (Aldrin recorded that he saw it whipping around in the backwash).

But you can't convince The Stupid, just as you can't cure them.
