Once upon a time--July 20, 1969, to be specific--two earthlings got out of their little spaceship and wandered around on the moon for a while. Ten more earthlings walked on the moon over the next three and a half years. The End.
Unfortunately, not quite. A fair number of Americans think that this whole business of moon landings really is a fairy tale. They believe that the moon landings were a big hoax staged on a set in the Mojave Desert, perpetuated apparently to convince everyone that U.S. technology was the bestest in the whole wide world.
