Looking at the body language from this post landing press conference, it might be the whole world that made a mistake.

Shouldn't this be moved to the 'conspiracy' section? I'm very disappointed there's no severed brontosaurus head being hauled by a helicopter photo accompanying this subject.

Yes... or a photo of it, that someone morphed into a little urinating guy with a pointy blue hat.

What you perceive as strange body language = we didn't land on the moon. Riiiiight.

As for this "fake rock" - how about all the rest we gave out that were verified REAL?

What the heck makes you think the AS11 Astronauts gave the fake moon rock to the Dutch? It was a US embassador who gave the rock to a Dutch ex-Prime Minister. The rock wasn't seen by the public until 2006, and scientists only had a chance to take a good look at it last month. They found out it was faked after two minutes. If anything, this shows that once scientists get their hands on something they do a great job at uncovering the truth. Two minutes with this rock showed it was fake; many hours with all of the real moon rocks show they are real.

Just because a US embassador gave a fake moon rock to an ex-Prime Minister doesn't mean Apollo 11 was fake. That's a giant leap (lame pun intended) you are making there.

Hello there.

So I guess we also have

4) an individual (US or Dutch) stole the real rock and swapped it for a fake.

Sorry, but I don't see that you have to be a fully-trained rock geek to know that wood is not moon rock :/

Probably not.  NASA say they were not handing out moon rock souvenirs at the time.

There's already a thread in the conspiracy section on this:

Here we go, some possible evidence that the 1st Moon landing was faked. According to a dutch museum a moon rock given to them by Armstrong et al, was fake. Turns out it was a petrified piece of wood.
Either
1) They didnt go to the moon, and Nasa has conned the world.
2) The rock is from the moon, and indicates that trees once grew there. We know it has water, but could the moon have once have had an atmosphere,and trees.

http://news.bbc.co.u...ope/8226075.stm

So - let me get this straight - you think that the first moon landing was faked with almost surgical precision but when it came to claiming something was a rock from the moon they went to the trouble of finding a piece of petrified wood rather than a rock that would be much easier to find?

Come on - somebody at the museum just made a mistake.

Hi Swanie,

Pardon my ignorance, but have they ever been handing out moon samples as souvenirs (and I am not considering a sample at the Smithsonian a souvenir)? Admittedly, I have not even googled it so my ignorance is not exactly excusable, but I was just curious and without the time to actually do the proper research at the present time.

Cheers,
Badeskov

Fact of the matter is they have moon rocks on display that are, well, clearly moon rocks when put under any scientific scrutiny. This incident wouldn't make sense as a catalyst of "proof of the moon landing being hoaxed".

They could have easily given the Dutch something scientists agree were a moon rock.

Essentially what I'm saying is if this were a result of a deception on NASA's part to assist with the "faking of the moon landing" then it wouldn't have so obviously have been a piece of petrified wood; even to a casual observer one would look and not think "moon rock". Fact is, they really -have- moon rocks, in fact moon rocks were acquired from other sources not just the Apollo Missions. NASA and Soviet Space probes before the apollo missions brought back moon rocks (not in the vast quantities of the Apollo Missions however), and in the 1970's I believe they recovered a few from a meteor impact in Antarctica.

Point is, even if the Apollo Landings were faked they could have still supplied real moon rocks. So the way I see it, it's just a big mix up.
