After I looked at some of the original NASA photographs from these alleged Moon missions, then I'm quite sure that they are taken in studio and show many interesting fails, like these "trackless Rovers" photos:

Now come on... This is just laughable :p

More fails? Okay... hold on - find me tracks, how the Rover get to these directions:

At least on 4chan have people some humor, when I brought this up (harsh language warning):

So I hope people there enjoy some of the fails I can point on straight away w/o getting into fight and accusing me of... well, you know what :) ( pls watch first, before jumping on the gun/keyboard: Fake Skeptics & The "Conspiracy Theorist" Slur: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=0BJA1R8YIHk )

trodas,

I've removed the image that you posted a disclaimer for as that doesn't preclude our rule against profanity, which is not acceptable. Thanks for understanding. :)

Okay, understand. I mean that link + warning won't hurt (come on, it was funny :D ), but okay :) I will walk more carefully now.

There are plenty of pictures of distinct tracks.









The gravity of the Moon is 1/6 the one of the Earth. The lunar regolith is also a lot firmer than what was initially suspected. Then there's the lighting and other photography related factors (this was in 1971...), not mentioning the design of the tires.





Not the kind of tire that looks like it would leave deep tracks, don't you think?


Enough of that conspiracy BS, please. Keep it for Alex Jones.

I believe the lunar high winds probably erased the wire mesh tracks. :D

There's a few things going on. First, the rover didn't always leave distinct tracks. You can see in some videos when they are stopping that excess soil falls out of the internal wheel. Second the astronauts kicked up a lot of soil just walking around and that could obscure tracks. Third, the angle of some of the photos is not the best to view tracks. Some are more visible in the high res photos though. Fourth, very occasionally the astronauts manually picked up the rover and moved it as it was quicker than turning it around or if they got stuck.

I never understood the obsession with some pro-hoax advocates regarding missing tracks. What is it supposed to prove? They seem to think it means a crane was used to put it into place without ever explaining why a crane would be needed when the vehicle could move under its own power, or could be pushed or even manually carried very easily.
