THE Moon landing conspiracy THEORY claim that some or all elements of the Apollo program and the associated Moon landings were hoaxes staged by NASA. Conspiracy theorists claim that NASA and others knowingly misled the public into believing the landings happened, by manufacturing, tampering with, or destroying evidence. Filmmaker Stanley Kubrick is accused of having produced much of the footage for Apollos 11 and 12, presumably because he had just directed 2001: A Space Odyssey, which is partly set on the Moon and featured advanced special effects. The mockumentary based on this idea, Dark Side of the Moon, could have fueled the conspiracy theory.
