There should be a general page for 'space travel hoax' - or have this as a subsection of the Moon landing hoax page. Es ist mir egal. (talk) 17:27, 4 August 2014 (UTC)

To bad we can't fit in all those idiots on Facebook who thought NASA had already sent people to Mars; I guess they mistook a Brian De Palma movie for a documentary.-- Forerunner (talk) 17:36, 4 August 2014 (UTC)
There is a case for both 'several pages on the various space travel conspiracy theories' and 'one page with sections on each theory'.

I do not know how much overlap there is between the various groups of disbelievers - but the reasons against are broadly the same - 'Fred Bloggs' needs money (so keeps documents and a log to sell for megabucks); FB decides that the material will be leaked anyway, so gathers together documentary proof that 'it was not this muggings who is to blame'; mis-sent emails, lost documents and other accidental spilling of beans; why waste so much money (when PanAm (2001: A Space Odyssey) or Richard Branson could do it as a commercial venture.

The truth involves setting up the Alien Space Bats breeding and re-release program. (talk) 18:04, 4 August 2014 (UTC)

Cleanup required at cage Z[edit]

I see that someone's been pissing on my turf but I don't have time for cleanup right now. I'll get to it within the week, though, so please don't link this and the other unfortunately named article by the same BoN anywhere in the meantime.--ZooGuard (talk) 18:31, 5 August 2014 (UTC)

More a case of 'looking round the internet tubes, see a kink uncovered by RW, create stub article flagging up omission, and let others take the development on, than turf wars. Rename, create an amalgamated page or otherwise improve and cross-reference. (talk) 14:51, 8 August 2014 (UTC)

They don't want you to know[edit]

Niel Gaiman never said "it's one small step for man" when he stepped out of Mir onto Mars. It was actually a prerecorded message transmitted from a sound-stage on Venus. Wake up goatple. Ikanreed (talk) 18:53, 5 August 2014 (UTC)

Carry on Venus (or one Carry On film anyway) quote 'Frying tonight' - or is there a Venus conspiracy - and all the reptiles are trying to keep the sheeples away from the Edenlike world that is actually Venus (which SF films does this plot-device come from?). (talk) 14:46, 21 August 2014 (UTC)
'Carry on Screaming.'
The real Mars landing involves a Starman (and possibly a time travelling policeman). Anna Livia (talk) 16:16, 18 June 2019 (UTC)
