Motive??? The motive was to divert all the funds earmarked for the Space Program into various Defense Industry projects. Did it happen? Was it all faked? Frankly, I’m not convinced one way or the other. I read a book years ago by a guy named “Edward Kasing.” It was very convincing, but I don’t think all the people involved could keep this diversion quiet. On the other hand, how come in every picture taken on the moon, the background is devoid of stars in the sky?
