Edgar Mitchell, 6th man on the moon, dies aged 85
There are now only 7 living humans who've walked on the moon.
We're running out, we need to make more of them.

That wasn't the moon, those images were shot on a stage at Area 51. I mean, look at the shadows, they're all wrong!

Say What? Look again The first shadow of a human shows him from behind He is the one taking the picture with an old style top view finder style camera. That causes the vanishing point to be low to the surface, sort of like at sun up or sunset. The sun is huge not like a single point of light or flashbulb. Notice that Mitchell's shadow is behind him almost obscured be his own body, as it should be, go out at first light and look at your own shadows, they will tell you.

These pictures were taken with the camera at belt buckle height not at eyeball level.

*ahem* Please note the winking icon. MMKK (hey!) is making a stupid joke. (Well, I really hope he is...otherwise, he's probably voting for that-schmuck-from-my-state-who-shall-not-be-named.)

Ok, I know you're joking, but...

A tinfoil-hat wearing former workmate once spent about 15 minutes going through a moon picture, pointing out to me all the things that were 'wrong'.

My favourite: the crosshairs.

He claimed there was something wrong with the one of the crosshairs, it was in the wrong place, or missing or something, I disremember the details. He actually seemed to think the moon landing fakers had run around on the set painting little crosses on rocks, and they'd got one wrong.
