go to www.badastronomy.com , it clearly and undisputibly disproves nearly every single bit of "evidence" that is offered up by conspiracy theorists.

Here are the facts in the simplest form, as put by an expert astrophysicist, "I think the problem here is twofold: we tend to want to believe (or at least listen to) conspiracy theories, and this one is a whopper. Also, the evidence is presented in such a way that, if you are unfamiliar with the odd nature of the vacuum of space and of space travel, it sounds reasonable. "

And the simplest way to disprove this conspiracy theory...

There were literally billions of dollars invested in the Apollo program, where did it go?  And even more importantly, there were THOUSANDS of people that worked on this project, many for NASA, and many were independent or worked for subcontractors...Were these people ALL FOOLED or were they just REALLY REALLY good at keeping secrets?

There are no stars in the background because:

"So why aren't they [stars] in the Apollo pictures? Pretend for a moment you are an astronaut on the surface of the Moon. You want to take a picture of your fellow space traveler. The Sun is low off the horizon, since all the lunar landings were done at local morning. How do you set your camera? The lunar landscape is brightly lit by the Sun, of course, and your friend is wearing a white spacesuit also brilliantly lit by the Sun. To take a picture of a bright object with a bright background, you need to set the exposure time to be fast, and close down the aperture setting too; that's like the pupil in your eye constricting to let less light in when you walk outside on a sunny day.

So the picture you take is set for bright objects. Stars are faint objects! In the fast exposure, they simply do not have time to register on the film. It has nothing to do with the sky being black or the lack of air, it's just a matter of exposure time. If you were to go outside here on Earth on the darkest night imaginable and take a picture with the exact same camera settings the astronauts used, you won't see any stars!"

in other words, if you shine a flashlight in your eyes, its hard to see a little LED light across the room. period.
