For whatever reasons, some people cannot accept that current human technology could overcome the substantial obstacles to such a difficult achievement. This ignores the concurrent developments in aviation, satellite, and materials that occurred in the second half of the 20th Century. (21st century advancements in digital special effects now enable fictional recreations nearly comparable to the visual records of the period.)

For some, it is the extension of denying anything historical because they did not witness or take part in it.

The Apollo 11 mission. Neil Armstrong, 10:56 pm EDT, July 20th 1969. (2:56 UTC July 21, 1969). Buzz Aldrin followed him onto the surface about 15 minutes later.
