Post Moon landing conspiracy theories disproven once and for all

http://www.bbc.co.uk/news/science-environment-14811336

BBC wrote:Nasa has released new images of the Apollo landing sites on the moon, taken from an orbiting spacecraft.

They show scientific equipment, the lunar rovers and a trail of footprints left by astronauts 40 years ago.



Obviously, the die-hard conspiracy nuts won't buy it, but meh, fuck 'em. We have the photo, we win.

In fairness "we" won 50 years ago. This won't change anything.

It's been disproven once and for all 40 yr ago.
Only those with no concept of reality cling to the fantasy that the whole world staged it. They're the same people who cry "faked! fotoshopped!" at every evidence you present them, but feel vindicated by the rumour of a death-bed confession. It takes no amount of effort to point at these new LRO images and cry "fake" as they have for the previous, lower resolution images.

You never disprove a conspiracy, all evidence which disproves it is merely taken as an indication of just how hard they are trying to cover it up. People will (and have) just shout "photoshopped". I swear you could physically take some of these people to the Moon, show them the landing sites, the tracks, and the mirrors and seismometers that were left and they still wouldn't believe you.

Some would insinuate that being drunk at 9 in the morning to be signs of serious issues.
Me? I'd insinuate it as signs of no plans and a refrigerator full of Whiskey and Guinness.

I always wondered why the photo wasn't taken sooner. We have telescopes that can see celestial bodies billions of light years away, but this took decades to produce.

Whatever the reason: FINALLY. Eat a dick, conspirators. Eat a whole bag, they're free.

clearly it's because our photoshopping abilities hadn't advanced far enough to fool the moon truthers (is that what they are called?)

Conspiracies... No. Just Don't. These are people who get obsessed with one coincidence and can build up a "theory" around that one obscure detail in a matter of hours and it's a freaking cult the next day. Thank you internets, for letting the nutjobs congregate that much faster.

It's one of those 'cannot be unseen' type of things(or like the movie Inception), where once an idea takes hold you see the evidence of it in everything and continuously build up the little scraps of mysterious data, convoluting the facts until you can't see but your own conspiracy.

And if any new evidence will pop up, you can just harness the power of the dozens of previous datascraps to identify a singular similarity between them and either dismiss it as a proof of the conpirators trying to hide it or as something that makes your castle in the clouds that much more solid.

From an example earlier this week: I ventured to the parts of YT where madness lies, ie. the water car videos. Stating as a problem to one of those videos, that hydrogen is volatile as fuck, you can't store it as safely as gasoline. I think I linked a video of a hydrogen balloon being blown up(spectacular energy output).

The response was(paraphrasing): "Oh no, we just use hydrogen gas, not HHO! Hydrogen is very stable, safer than gasoline!"

Haven't gotten an answer back yet, when I pointed out to the "professor" that in order to burn hydrogen, you still need the oxygen, ie. You'll be using 2H and an O in there somewhere anyway.

Correct me if i'm wrong but can't you see most of the apollo landing sites with a fairly cheap telescope?
