Context

Several scientific evidences are available to prove NASA claim

The Argument

Moon expeditions brought back samples of lunar rocks which are generally available. It can be proven that this rocks are not of terrestrial origin.

Also Apollo left a mirror on Moon surface so if a laser beam is sent to the Moon it is returned by the mirror
