Top 10 Hollywood Conspiracies - One of the most fascinating conspiracy theories out of Hollywood is that famed filmmaker Stanley Kubrick shot the footage of the moon landing. Theorists point to a few interesting clues to prove it. The basic logic behind the theory is that since the Americans were in a race with Russia to the moon and they had the ability to fake a moon landing, why wouldn’t they?

The moons rotation is about 27 days, same as its orbit around the Earth.   If the moon didn't rotate in geosynchronous relation to its orbit we would see its rotation on earth.  You can validate this with two balls. The position of the earth seen on the moon does not change much.

"Apollo was a major software project. Astronauts used the Apollo Guidance Computer, placed in both the command module & the lunar module, for navigation assistance & to control the spacecraft, & someone needed to program it. The software for the guidance computer was written by a team at the MIT Instrumentation Laboratory, headed up by Margaret Hamilton. Here's a picture of her next to the code she and her colleagues wrote for the Apollo 11 guidance computer that made the moon landing…
