      Of course. People who don’t think that humans went to the moon are deluded, and will probably never be convinced of its truth, despite overwhelming evidence to the contrary.

      Our mission to the moon is one of the grandest achievements of science, and it is something that should be celebrated.

      Scepticism is very important in science – but disbelief in the face of very strong evidence is not scientific, and is actually very harmful to progress.

      Yes, I have no reasons to believe otherwise, even if I once spent an evening with some friends talking about all the conspiracy theories about the moon landing!

      I do, yes. The idea that it is a conspiricy seems really silly to me. There were SO many scientists who worked on that project, who analysed the data collected and so on, that to suggest that they were all either fooled or part of the conspiricy seems very unlikely.

      Yes, I think so. I’ve never seen anything that has convinced me that it didn’t happen.

      I don’t have enough evidence to decide one way or the other, but I don’t really see why it would have been faked. So yes, I suppose I believe it.
