Re: ...and you will return home.
No, because that shot is fake. We never went to the moon, so how can we know what the Earth looks like from somewhere where we've never been?

You are kidding... right?

There's a point where logical cynicism breaks down into paranoia.

There's some weirdos on the forum alright.

Anyway, i think the shot looks good enough. It doesn't have to be super realistic after as you suggested earlier about the beams Mars.

I recently discovered that some friends of mine were believing this sort of thing...I was flabbergasted...shocked...and then I moved on.  People can believe whatever crazy stuff they wanto believe.

Re: ...and you will return home.
People make up all sorts of weird.... well, I wouldn't call them "theories" because a "theory" is based on facts, never are these conspiracy ideas based on actual fact.

When next we land people on the moon they can take video of those original footprints. Then conspiracy "theory" will be thrown out the window.

(Course we all know what the conspiracy guys will say to that...... :ick:)

Of course the Moon is exactly the right size in that picture. You just have to be at the right distance... and some zoom, possibly.

Example: take a tennis ball and a football. Place the football onto ground or floor so that you can see it. Then take the tennis ball into your hand and keep it between your eyes and the football. At some point, the tennis ball's apparent diameter equals the one of the football. Closer, and it appears bigger; farther, and it appears smaller.
