The Moon landing conspiracy theories claim that some or all elements of the Apollo program and the associated Moon landings were hoaxes staged by NASA and members of other organizations. Hoax theories, saying Apollo astronauts had never walked on the Moon, began during the six manned landings (1969–1972). Various groups and individuals have continued to make conspiracy claims since the end of the Apollo program in 1975. Conspiracy theorists (henceforth conspiracists) consistently base their claims on the notion NASA and others knowingly misled the public into believing the landings happened by manufacturing, destroying, or tampering with evidence; including photos, telemetry tapes, transmissions, rock samples, and even some key witnesses.
