Speakers: Dr Martin Hendry, University of Glasgow

More than 40 years after Apollo 11 there are a surprising number of theories around – in books, documentary programmes and the internet – that Neil Armstrong's famous "One small step" was an elaborate hoax, filmed in secret here on Earth. Conspiracy theorists point to a range of "evidence" to support their claim – including waving flags, strange shadows, no stars in the sky and deadly solar radiation. In this talk, using real Apollo video footage and a series of simple demonstrations, Dr Martin Hendry takes a closer look at the science behind "moon hoax" claims, and asks whether we really did land on the Moon.
