Apollo 11 Preparations

Last week I found myself involved in a conversation with someone who believes that NASA faked the lunar landing. This was a first for me and I’m afraid I fumbled my evidence because…really…faked? I have to say the faith this person has in NASA and the U.S. Government is rather endearing—I certainly don’t believe either bureaucracy is capable of sustaining such a large-scale deception for decade after decade. Juggling an archive of evidence twenty miles deep just to sustain a Cold War lie is beyond their abilities, trust me.

In honor of conspiracy theories everywhere, enjoy today’s wallpaper. It shows theĀ Apollo 11 Command/Service Module (CSM) being mated to the Saturn V Lunar Module Adapter in preparation for the trip to the Moon (click on image above to download).
