Title text (when you hover the image): "Ok, so Spirit and Opportunity are pretty awesome. And Kepler. And New Horizons, Cassini, Curiosity, TiME, and Project M. But c'mon, if the Earth were a basketball, in 40 years no human's been more than half an inch from the surface."

Thanks for that BertL - I should have done that myself though, and will remember to do it next time.

The trouble is the arrogance of the typical conspiracy theorists, especially those who first came across the idea on the Internet, simply think they are too smart, too knowing to fool, and that's why NASA doesn't try it again.
So all the question does is feed their already massively over bloated egos.
