4 Conspiracy Theorists Are Proven Wrong Again: China Shows Proofs of Apollo 11 Moon Landing
BEIJING, Feb. 6 (UPI) -- China says a full map of the moon captured by the orbiter Chang'e-2 is the
highest-resolution image of the entirety of the moon's surface published to date. The full coverage moon map was compiled from images taken by a stereo camera on the orbiter from heights of 60 miles (7-meter resolution) and 9 miles (1.4-meter resolution) over the lunar surface between October 2010 and May 2011, Liu Dongkui, deputy chief commander of China's lunar probe project, said.
The resolution in the images can show features as small as 23 feet (7 meters) across, China's state-run news agency Xinhua reported Monday.
Traces of previous U.S. Apollo missions were visible in the images, Yan Jun, chief application scientist for China's lunar exploration project, said.
China is set to launch the Chang'e-3 in 2013, the first Chinese spacecraft intended to land on the
surface of an extraterrestrial body, officials said.
Photos of possible landing sites (Sinus Iridum, or Bay of Rainbows), along with China's complete moon map, will provide information for the country's future moon landing missions, they said.

The 6th image in the gallery and its annotations clearly show details of Apollo 11 landing: landing module with a size of 2 pixels, coordinates of the landing module, trace of lunar rover, zoomed-in figure of lunar rover route etc.
It is a smoking gun-like evidence that the Apollo moon landing was not fake. Should we take those conspiracy theorists to the moon and show them Apollo detritus and prove these things are not just put there yesterday?
