Moon Landing Gallup Poll

It never ceases to amaze me all the conspiracy theories that people will perpetuate, as evidenced in the moon landing Gallup poll from 1999 that puts the doubters at 6 percent. Even after all these years, and all these other times going into space, so many people still insist the moon landing didn't happen, and have 100 other side theories about the trip.

One of the other theories that intrigues me: was just clued in recently to how many people in certain parts of the world believe that Neil Armstrong heard the Muslim call to prayer come to him from the stars while he was in space, and then converted to Islam. I like this one better than the "they never went to the moon" theory.

Moon Landing Gallup Poll

"In the July 1999 poll, the overwhelming majority of Americans (89%) do not believe the U.S. government staged or faked the Apollo moon landing. Only 6% of the public believes the landing was faked and another 5% have no opinion..."

Other info about the moon landing, as the Apollo annversary is commemorated:

40th Anniversary of the Apollo 11 Lunar Mission source

"On July 16, 1969 the crew of Apollo 11 blasted off from the Kennedy Space Center in Florida on the historic quest to put the first men on the moon. To commemorate the 40th anniversary of this achievement, Sun photographer Karl Merton Ferron acquired archive footage from NASA and the John F. Kennedy Library, and interspersed time-lapse images of the moon traveling across the Baltimore skyline during the past eight months. The resulting video is an entrancing convergence of history and art that pays tribute to the Apollo 11 mission."
