The 'Moon Hoax' (also the 'Apollo Hoax' or 'Lunar Hoax') refers to the conspiracy theory that asserts that the US Apollo Moon landings were faked by NASA. This basic claim is usually offered founded on a number of further assertions, usually relating either to supposed 'inconsistencies' found in the imagery returned from the Moon; or to physical reasons why the landing could not have taken place. For example, a common claim is that no human being could survive the transit through the Van Allen radiation belts.
The thriller movie 'Capricorn One' tells the story of the hoaxing of a manned trip to Mars. It is based on the persistent moon hoax claims, and illustrates several of the common conspiracy arguments.
