Did we really land on the Moon?

This Thursday the University of Birmingham hosts a talk by Dr Martin Hendry (University of Glasgow) titled “Did we really land on the Moon?”.
Did Neil Armstrong really walk on the Moon? Almost 40 years on from Apollo 11 a surprising number of people believe that Armstrong’s famous “One small step” was an elaborate hoax, filmed in secret here on Earth. Conspiracy theorists point to a range of “evidence” to support their claim: waving flags, strange shadows, no stars in the sky, deadly solar radiation.
In this talk, using real Apollo video footage and a series of simple demonstrations, we will take a closer look at the science behind “moon hoax” claims, and ask whether we really did land on the Moon.
