The moon? Manned Apollo space craft never went to the moon. Pure fantasy, the government only wanted the money to create ICBM technology. Russia went along with it for the same reason.

Dave Scott is great, very accessible. I thought the Apollo 15 moon shot was the most interesting in that, the location at Hadley's Rill is astonishing. The footage of Apollo 15 coming in over the mountains & seeing the rill in the background & setting down about a mile from the rill was just fantastic. It's on YouTube.
I just read a book called "How Apollo Got To The Moon". It describes every phase of the mission.
That space craft was an unbelievable piece of engineering. The use & invention of technology @ that time. Just a great read. You will never doubt that Apollo landed on the moon after reading this book. There's absolutely no way that they did not.
