  • Yes, but you would not be able to see any objects. The resolution of the Hubble telescope means that we are unable to zoom in on any objects smaller than 27 m in diameter. The many attempts to view the Apollo 11 landing site have had similar problems. Scientists, contrary to conspiracy theory beliefs, are highly interested in viewing the site to see what decay - if any - has happened to the equipment. http://www.aerospaceweb.org/question/conspiracy/q0238.shtml Other interesting links: http://geology.com/news/2005/07/images-of-the-apollo-landing-sites.html http://www.redzero.demon.co.uk/moonhoax/ http://www.redzero.demon.co.uk/moonhoax/Hubble.htm http://www.redzero.demon.co.uk/moonhoax/Clementine.htm http://science.nasa.gov/headlines/y2001/ast23feb_2.htm http://www.daviddarling.info/encyclopedia/M/MoonHoax.html http://www.badastronomy.com/bad/tv/foxapollo.html http://www.braeunig.us/space/hoax-jw.htm I find it interesting that people believe the US government has been able to keep such an elaborate hoax alive and mostly unchallenged for years, but didn't have enough sense to scan the pictures for tell-tale signs of such a hoax before releasing them.
  • You can't see that stuff because the never went.
  • I looked at all of the images that were supposed to help clarify the matter but I did not see any conclusive images however. The other answer did not provide any conclusive evidence whatsoever and I did go to all of the links too.
  • Even when they have a satellite 'Clementine' orbiting the moon taking pictures of every square foot of the moons surface they still can't manage to provide an orbital picture of any of the supposed apollo landing sites! Interesting how just those select sites are unobservable isn't it!
  • No but the lunar orbiter can. http://www.msnbc.msn.com/id/31966131/ns/technology_and_science-space/ Can you imagine the totality of wasted hours spent by all the conspiracy theory nuts on this over the years? Think of what they could have achieved. sigh...
  • No, for several reasons. The Hubble telescope is not able to resolve objects as small as the Apollo spacecraft at the distance of the Moon. The Moon is much too bright. The Hubble is a very large telescope, and if it was pointed at the Moon, the bright light would blind the cameras. It was designed to look at very dim objects. In fact, the Hubble is not allowed to point any closer than 9 degrees from the Moon for this reason. The Hubble was not designed to track the Moon. Its Fine Guidance Sensors are designed to keep the telescope pointing at fixed stars, not tracking the Moon.
