Technically speaking, Sasquatch is correct. The astronauts that landed on the moon were wearing boots.

I believe the landings were faked. On Mars.

Yes we landed on the moon. They walked on it. We have not gone back because doing it opened up other more rewarding ways to study Space.

After reading this Obama said I am on it.
I am going to be on the side of I don't think we did it. My reason is as mentioned before, why have we never gone back to develop it? And the government would have definitely gone back. I lived in Montana at the time (Summer of 69), and we used to sneak over to the "Badlands" quite often. But several months before the alleged moon landing the area we used to go to was closed off by the government for unspecified reasons. And then reopened up in October. The films I have seen really resemble some of that area.

Watch the 1977 movie " Capricorn One " it will make you go hmmmmm?
Movie was about Mars landing not moon but......HMMMMMM?
Pretty good flick no matter what you think , did we or not!
1. The LM had just enough consumables to land and take-off from the moon. No more. Given Mars is 8.7x the mass of the moon, a standard-issue LM could simply not carry enough fuel to land, let alone have enough left over to take off.
2. The legs of the LM would fold like paper under the increased weight of the craft itself.
3. The launch vehicle (Saturn V) just ain't got the horsepower needed to launch a third stage/LM/CSM to Mars. At least within one human lifetime.
4. The CSM was designed for, at best, a 14 day lifespan. Send one to Mars, and in three weeks your crew is dead. Not from starvation or dehydration, but lack of fuel. Fuel cells providing power run out of fuel. No heat, no lights,..... no oxygen. They slowly die from asphyxia.
I think you'd have a better chance of driving a 20d spike into an oak plank with a paper match.
Hell, even the Soviets would have figured THIS out.
And if we truly DIDN'T go to the moon, they sure as hell would have said something. As well as the Chinese. And the North Koreans. And East Germans.
