Uptil this day only two astronauts have landed on the moon, and never three .
It was a 'live' TV programme.
I watched it all at 4;00 in the morning. in Great Britain.
I choose to believe that it isn't and you should believe the same.
Don't question such a historic landmark unless you have facts to prove otherwise.
Yes, there have been documentaries and people coming up with absurd statements. These documentaries are there to make money.

Yes they did lave things on the moon.
The command module carrying the crew of Apollo 11 landed in the Pacific Ocean, near an aircraft carrier. It floated in the water until the crew was recovered, then scuba divers attached a hook to the top and it was carried by a helicopter to the aircraft carrier.
The United States and Russia were engaged in a Cold War rivalry during the mid-20th century. Competition for space exploration, including reaching the moon, was seen as a symbol of technological and ideological superiority. The US wanted to be the first to demonstrate its capabilities and dominance in space, which led to the race to the moon.
1st stage developed 7,648,000 pounds force, 2nd stage developed 1,000,000 pounds force, 3rd stage developed 225,000 pounds force.
The Apollo 12 mission, which was the sixth crewed mission in NASA's Apollo program and took place in November 1969, experienced a notable computer malfunction. During the launch, the spacecraft was struck by lightning twice, which caused a temporary loss of telemetry data and triggered a "SCE to AUX" (Signal Conditioning Equipment to Auxiliary) alarm. This alarmed the flight controllers and the crew.
Fortunately, the quick thinking of astronaut Alan Bean, who flipped a switch to put the Signal Conditioning Equipment in auxiliary mode as per the guidance from flight controller John Aaron, helped restore telemetry data. This allowed the mission to continue, and Apollo 12 successfully landed on the Moon, demonstrating the importance of teamwork and astronaut training in handling unexpected situations.
US Scott number 1371 has a face value of 6 cents. It has a catalog purchase price of 80 cents mint or 15 cents used. Which means you would be lucky to get anything for a used stamp and might get a dime or so for a mint one.
