Hi Susie,

No, I wasn't the one who provided those NASA links which refute the "Capricorn I" movie, but I did engage in a thread with some exers who expressed doubts (I think they were joking) that men landed on the moon.

I grew up in the shadows of the Kennedy Space Center, and worked as a technician on space shuttle Columbia. My father-in-law was a NASA mechanical engineer and helped design lunar vehicles for the Apollo program.

When you have family and friends who have spent their entire lives engaged in hands-on work in the space program, and when you've been a part of it yourself, you just have to shake your head in dismay when you hear people say it's all a hoax.
