Without air, the stars should be more visible. If the astronauts had cameras on tripods set to have long exposure times, the stars would become visible. Instead, the cameras were set up to take pictures of the bright astronauts with the bright Sun and the bright lunar surface. As a proof of concept, this image was taken by an astronaut leaving the International Space Station on a Russian Soyuz spacecraft.
Shadows on the Moon
It too was taken with a low exposure rate making the background stars appear invisible. Consider someone attempting to take an image of the stars with a disposable camera.
If you want stars, you need to have a long exposure time. Argument: The shadows in the Moon pictures are cast in different directions.
This means there must be at least two light sources. First, anyone who has ever walked outside at night under street lamps will notice multiple shadows cast from various street lamps. As a good rule of thumb, one light source equals one shadow. If there were multiple spotlights in use, we should see more than one shadow for each object, but that is not the argument made by Moon-hoaxers. They are talking about the directions of the shadows just to be clear. Now, if you look at the pictures, you will see one shadow. The picture is surprisingly accurate, but almost does a better job at dispelling this argument.
It so happens that the three cast shadows all point in different directions from one another in the recreation, whereas there are only two directions seen in the Apollo picture. All created with a single light source.
Argument: There is no blast crater under the Lunar Module. The Lunar Module should have created a blast crater as it landed.
Why Do Some People Believe the Moon Landings Were a Hoax?
When landing, the Lunar Module only exerted a pressure of about 1. Argument: The Lunar Module should have kicked up dust as it landed. That dust should be visible on the feet of the Module. Again, the Module did kick up a little dust, but not anywhere near that much. Simply because there is no air on the moon. When a rocket blasts off from Earth, air pressure helps kick everything around. In the Shadow of the Moon Promotional film poster.

Archived from the original on 11 October It is the most volcanically active world in the solar system, with hundreds of volcanoes - some erupting lava fountains dozens of miles high. These forces cause Io's surface to bulge up and down or in and out by as much as feet metres.
Io's orbit also cuts across Jupiter's powerful magnetic lines of force, thus turning it into an electric generator.

This current takes the path of least resistance along Jupiter's magnetic field lines to the planet's surface, creating lightning in Jupiter's upper atmosphere. NASA's robotic space probe Juno has been orbiting Jupiter since , having undertaken a five-year cruise to the planet. Please see our Privacy Notice for details of your data protection rights.
