We did, and I have shaken the hand of two men (Conrad & Bean) who stood on it. In the early 70's my father worked at MSC on the Skylab project; many of the Apollo crews were actively preparing for the later moon landings while also being trained (by dad) to use one of the solar observation telescopes.
Anyone who genuinely believes we didn't can stand in the corner with the flat earthers and wear the dunces cap for the rest of the day!

I don't believe that any government would be able to keep a fake like that a secret for so long. I think we did go but some of the photos are 'enhanced'

I find it hard to believe that any Hollywood effects team could have faked the moon landings...have you seen the quality of the effects used in films in the late sixties?
All the photos I take with my DSLR are 'enhanced' just as all the photos I took on film were. A large part of the skill in photography is how to make the best of your images while developing/processing them.

Remember there was a race to the moon.
All Russia needed to do was recieve the radio transmissions at the east and west of Russia, and triangulate. They would have been very quick to expose a lie if they could prove it in my opinion.

technically all that proves is that a where a transmition came from so they could of dropped a transmitter and be using that to rebroadcast back to earth. (not that i think they did but it just depends what you will accept as proof)

I used to believe it was real until I saw This website which clearly documents some of the problems with the photos (and yea, other stuff).

Most were sub-good, but the film '2001 A Space Odyssey' (shot in 1968) was a tour-de-force in special effects.

We must of, otherwise we'd never have defeated the silence

Major scale advancement has been hurt by the space programs respective falls from funding grace. Yes huge progress is still being made in other areas but real 'for the benifit of all' R&D, the big scale stuff seems to be dead. All of its funding drained off into the accounts of a million middle managers and buricrats so that they can fine more efficent ways to shuffle paper and invent new ways to look busy wasting time. Society is no longer about doing but in planning and documenting the actions of possible dooing while insulating yourself from actually having to do it.
I think that this all ties in, there is not great goal any more and even the luster that space once had has been erroded by the cave dwelling denialists are far happier to beleive that we have not left our little ball of dirt - at least temporarily.
