  15. 15. What I Believe<br />I believe that the moon landing really did happen because it doesn’t make sense in my mind to question NASA on this. I know that there are a few things that attempt to prove the event was a lie—It’s suspicious to me, though, that we didn’t start questioning the landing until technology had improved. <br />
