Proof that Astronauts made it to the Moon

Earlier this month NASA's Lunar Reconnaissance Orbiter, or (LRO), took very high resolution photos of the moon's surface. The photos are so clear that we can see the tracks and the debris left behind by the Apollo 17 astronauts and their lunar rover. This is proof to all the skeptics who doubt that we actually have been to the moon and that people have actually set foot on it. The photos sent back to us by the LRO were taken between 13 and 15 miles above the moon's surface. Two years ago the LRO sent back images from about 30-60 miles off of the moon's surface, but those images were too blurry to discern much from them. These new images however, are the closest pictures that have been taken by the satellite and are of a very high clarity. From this close distance observers were able to discern the actual landing locations of the vehicles, the trails that the rover took, as well as the actual lunar rover itself still sitting on the surface of the moon.

For even more proof to the skeptics out there watch the moon landing episode of mythbusters, which debunks many theories that have been put forward by many people who do not believe in the moon landing.

While there will always be skeptics surrounding the moon landing of Apollo 17 I love it that there is more proof that it actually did happen. I think it should also be noted the uniqueness of the moon; that tracks that were made 40 years ago have shown essentially no deterioration. That would very rarely happen on earth.
