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."
