Reading - Apollo Moon Landings

In these tutorials, almost all the examples and exercises are based on arguments over whether Apollo astronauts really did land on the Moon.  In particular, they are drawn from an article Apollo Moon Landings, by Kevin Yates, who works at the National Space Centre in the UK. You should download this article, print it out and read it carefully.  The examples and exercises will make much more sense in the context of the whole article.

Did the astronauts land on the Moon??

In our opinion, Apollo astronauts really did land on the Moon; the arguments by the "Moon landing hoax believers" are interesting but ultimately not persuasive.  They are useful precisely because they are superficially plausible but turn out to be weak.  Thus they illustrate the importance of careful analysis and evaluation, a process supported by argument mapping.
