Bart Sibrel is an American filmmaker who was accidentally sent a reel of (Atomic clock time-stamped and dated by NASA) faked footage from Apollo 11 by NASA while doing a documentary about the Apollo Missions. He tells his story and gives many more details on this sad chapter of US history.

This is Phil Plait, the guy who runs the BadAstronomy.com website which allegedly ‘debunks’ Apollo hoax claims. Feel free to check him out with your own eyes and ears and decide for yourself if he seems credible. He was also a consultant on the Mythbusters’ Apollo Moon Landings episode.
This is an amusing scene from ‘Diamonds are Forever’ in which James Bond steals a ‘moon buggy’ from a studio and makes a quick escape…
Evidently, many people didn’t believe in the Apollo Moon Landings even back then.
The ‘Moon Rocks’ were meteorite pieces found in Antarctica like these:
Dr. Wernher Von Braun led an expedition there in 1967 according to NASA’s own
Some others were complete fakes as is detailed in this story about a fake moon
rock in a Dutch museum:
You can actually see the stagehands helping the phony astronauts on the phony moon soundstage at 1:40 of this clip.
Only NASA knows why it faked the moon landings, but many have surmised that the radiation of the Van Allen Belts would have killed astronauts in a relatively thin-walled spacecraft. It is estimated that a ship would need walls several feet thick to adequately shield the crew from radiation. Unfortunately, however, a ship with several feet thick, radiation-proof walls would have been too heavy to get off the launchpad. D’oh!
The Van Allen Belts are not all bad though. They protect us from the Sun’s lethal radiation and a litany of other cosmic radiation sources while making the Earth uniquely livable for mankind.
See for yourself as an enterprising filmmaker tracks down numerous Apollo veterans for their stories…
