Artemis Mission Denial

Do it now before the rush
  [vote for,

People seemed to start denying the Apollo missions had happened, or were happening, in about 1970, but in those days the technology wasn't really there and the best they could do was make Capricorn 1 and stuff. However, in recent decades the internet and psychological manipulation have made people a lot better at pretending nobody went there than before. This is partly aided by the missions fading into immemoriality.

Nowadays, I find my hope for the future of human space exploration has been deferred so long that I can't bring myself to believe that it's actually going happen. Fortunately for me, and perhaps many others, we now have a relatively well-oiled and functional machine for persuading people Neil Armstrong and his friends never did what they're famous for.

Therefore, let's get in at the ground floor and build a better space mission denial movement. Just as Artemis has benefitted from fifty years of progress in technology, so should the new Artemis denial movement. We can rebuild Moon landing denial. We have the technology. We have the capability to make the world's first bionic Moon landing denial operation. Better than it was before. Better. Stronger. Faster. We will even get the astronauts themselves to stop believing they went to the Moon, and if there's a lunar base, we'll set up a branch there.

It must be done.

       There is no Internet. You knew that didn't you? Your computer and phone just have broadcast receivers in them and very clever AI. "They" send things for you to look at, and the AI responds to your interactions.

       You know, in a way I'd love that to be true.

       Neil Armstrong? Meanwhile, if men where meant to go to the moon it would have been made out of rock and not a type of flaky cheese.

       don't worry, Musk will spend all his money to get to Moon and Mars just to avoid taxation
