Everybody's heard those "nut job" stories or seen the CG'd videos on YouTube promoting the idea that all space exploration is a fraud. There was even a 1970s era movie, "Capricorn One" about NASA astronauts who won't go along with the space travel scam.

But, while most surveys say that a mere 7% of Americans think that the moon landing in July of 1969 was a hoax (is &5 of 300 million really "mere"), other polls show that as many as 21% believe that the historic lunar walk of Neil Armstrong and Buzz Aldrin never took place.

101.7 / 710 KEEL's Robert J Wright and Erin McCarty talk about that growing number - legitimate or not - tell about people they know (in some case, family members) and take a stance on those doubters of space exploration that might be more than a little surprising.

To hear what Robert and Erin have to say about these folks - most often found in the under-30 crowd - just start the video at the top of the page at the 1:23 mark.
