under their "Still Not Convinced?... Here's 32 things that need to be answered!" at the bottom of the page it says for #28:
"In 2002 a top of the range computer requires at least 64 Mb of memory to run a simulated Moon landing, and that does not include the memory required to take off again once landed. The alleged computer on board Apollo 11 had 32k of memory. That's the equivalent of a simple calculator."

umm... maybe because it's running windows jackasses! Guess the morons weren't alive back in the pre-windows days, when I was playing full color video games on a Apple II with a whopping 4k. They had a spreadsheets similar to Excel called VisiCalc that could automatically calculate forumlas AND display them on PCs with only 4k of ram. And this was running on generic BASIC code on the Apple, image a computer completely designed for one purpose only, calculating getting to the moon and back, similar to how PC's require far more processing power to play games that game console systems play with 1/10th of the CPU and graphics abilities.

These are the morons people believe?? I mean sure some of their stuff sounds weird, like shadows and stars and flags flapping in the wind and all that shit, and that all of this was made in a movie studio (although what's with the wind in a movie studio?). If it was in a movie studio all this shit would have been way more perfect! I mean they had some pretty damn good movies come out before 1969 when the first landing took place, like Planet of the Apes and 2001 both came out in 68. If they wanted to fake it i'm damn sure the director of 2001 could have done it and at least got the damn shadows right! They could have gone back and edited and reshot everything until it was completely perfect and still broadcast it as "live", not like anyone would know it wasnt right? See all the "mistakes" only prove it's 100% legit.
