And while it was kind of interesting to listen to, it was also kind of crappy, because these guys at "Stuff They Don't ... Know" aren't very good at doing their homework.
They can't even get the names of movie directors right.

Truth Be Told?
My own theory after a LOT of research into the Apollo missions was that they couldn't get a man to the moon because of the
Van Allen radiation belt being too deadly to get a living man through and back safely (the Russians never sent a man to the moon), so they filmed all the stuff to fool the Russians into believing that they made it to the moon.
Neil Armstrong being a Christian would never swear on The Bible that he walked on the moon, even for $5000 to go to his favourite charity if he would swear that he walked on the moon.
His reply was a lame "that's probably a fake Bible" to the guy who challenged him.
I think the Americans are still trying to figure out how to get a man through those VA belts.
I think their robotic missions like those of the Mars Rover are about the extent of the real space missions and that the space shuttles were missions to see just how far out from the earth NASA could get a living human out past the earth.
Well, that's what I believe right now about the moon landings.
