Thanks! :) I know it was certainly a silly mistake to make.  Must be because both begin with an 'm' that made me think of moon not mars - and o.c the moon landing was in 1969 - and well that's my excuse...  :P
Everyone's entitled to an excuse.  Anyway, so you still think it didn't happen?  How could they have fabricated something on that scale involving numerous US gvmnt departments, research bodies and so on?
I don't know what the US equivalent of the UK's Official Secrets Act is, but believe me they have it.  The principle contractor would have been NASA which is a US government agency, and they in turn sub-contracted to various technical firms, etc, that would all have agreed to and signed some form of NDA or confidentiality agreement.  That's how they kept much of it a secret and how they fabricated it!

Exact!  You can't say these martian landings were fabricated unless you have proof, nor the moon landing for that matter.  As to NDA's, these couldn't have been applied to everything and to everyone involved.

No, not to absolutely everything and everyone, but certainly to all key personnel, contractors and other US gvmnt departments involved.

They may well have signed NDA's to stop scientific and technical stuff from being leaked, but this still doesn't mean the mission's were fabricated.

It doesn't mean they weren't either and I just don't see how they had the capability to send two landers onto the surface of Mars just seven years after the manned moon mission.  Both Viking 1 and Viking 2 landed in 1976 allegedly... :-X
