Any "fan" of yours would be raver...

It was a make work project to keep thousands of people employed, much
like the pyramids.

Umitigated crap.

>From John Bean, someone who has actually been there:

"The only thing you can see from the moon is a beautiful sphere,
mostly white (clourds), some blue (ocean), patches of yellow (desert),
and every once in a while some green vegetation. No man-made object is
visible on this scale. In fact, when first leaving earth's orbit and
only a few thousand miles away, no man-made object is visible at that
point either"

So, if your "research" is as reliable as this bit of nonsense, I'd
suggest you give it up. You are as ego-driven as the scientists you
attempt to discredit with your ad hominen attacks.
