It was the biggest piece of supposed fake news before the term was even invented. Millions of people across the world still believe that no one has ever walked on the moon, and that the images that NASA broadcast in July 1969 were shot in a studio.Almost all the conspiracy theories focus on supposed anomalies in the grainy photos and videos that NASA sent back to Earth.Surprisingly serious doubt is also rampant among some of Washington's closest allies, with a 2009 TNS survey showing a quarter of British people did not believe the landings happened, while 9 percent of French people were also unconvinced, according to pollsters Ifop.Academic Didier Desormeaux, who has written widely on conspiracy theories, said the more important an event the more likely it was to attract outrageous counternarratives.
