Same here, although I voted for the nearest option (all fake).

There's a lot of talk about how the Van Allen belts would make it impossible for manned missions to pass through safely. There are also issues of credibility relating to the technology, and to the sheer luck of it all going to plan first time round with no mishaps...

But on the other hand, the level of human deception involved would have to be considerable - ie were the astronauts in on the hoax or were they brainwashed into believing they were on a real mission to the moon?

Occam's Razor and all: it would - arguably - be easier to fake it all than actually try go to the moon, so I'll stick with that for now.
