Apollo 18 - could it have happened ?

As Apollo 18 hits cinemas attention turns to the real lunar mission that was cancelled back in 1973.

Some conspiracy theorists contend that Apollo 17 was not the last mission to the moon and that NASA launched at least one further mission after the Apollo program was cancelled. But just how feasible is it that another moon landing took place without the rest of the world knowing about it and what would have been its purpose ?

"The new film "Apollo 18" is like "The Blair Witch Project" of space travel flicks, couched as found footage shot by NASA astronauts during a secret mission to the moon in 1973."

I agree with Mike215's comment, leaving the 3 of them up there to die..was very disturbing. Enjoyed the movie as as Sci/fi/conspiracy flick. Cowboys and Aliens I thoroughly enjoyed. Oh thanks, spoiler why don't you.

The plot would make a good video game, too.

Who knows, perhaps they already have a moonbasis. The absence of evidence is not the evidence of absence... It's also not a very firm foundation for speculation.

There is also speculation that there was even an Apollo 20 mission

There is also speculation that there was even an Apollo 20 mission There is also another variety of Apollo related nonsense for the gullible to buy into. "Apollo 20" would've been the final Apollo mission. It never happened, as Apollo 18 and 19 never happened either, much to my personal regret. There was never a Rutledge or Snyder in the American astronaut corps, and Leonov (Alexei), was a little busy when this nonsense was supposed to be happening. He was Chief of the Cosmonaut Office and training Center, was no longer on flight status, and had made his last flight the year before (ASTP..whic... [More]

I agree! However, if the next group of astronauts set foot on the moon and found a boulevard lined with fast-food restaurants, which specialize in green-cheese, cheeseburgers, to seafood from the "Sea of Tranquility, to Papa-in-the-Moon pizzas, then I might have to reconsider. I might even consider buying beachfront property along the "Sea of Serenity." Well...I'd be interested in a franchise!

Well I thought that it'd be a good movie too, and have just finished watching it all online. Amazing what you can find by asking google .... "watch 'whatever' free online"! Now that said...if I had a choice to watch it again I prolly wouldnt. Not on a pc screen anyway...As a sci fi flick its... ho-hum really, IMO. But that depends what you want in a moon movie I guess.. If I was a teen Id prolly like it... Like most here I will watch pretty much any sci-fi / moon/mars stuff...but its not one Id have in my collection And I dont want to give the plot away and say too much but if youre hoping to ...
