Did the moon landings really happen? I have no clue, I’m not an astronaut, but NASA certainly wants you to think so—they’ve released 8,400 high-res moon landing pictures that they say are definitely real and not at all photoshopped, curiously timed with the release of The Martian, which I’m sure is just a coincidence, right??

So is this latest photo dump a cool-as-hell look at history or evidence of the biggest scam perpetrated against the American people since the government floated the notion that jet fuel could melt steel beams? Who’s to say, really? Neil Armstrong, I guess, but he’s dead now. RIP, man.

Anyway, check out these cool pics.

Pretty convincing, I guess, if you don’t know any better—I don’t, and I looked at all 8,400 pictures. What a universe!
