MYTHBUSTERS TAKE ON ONE OF THEIR BIGGEST MYTHS EVER: NASA MOON LANDING HOAX THEORIES

-- Premieres Wednesday, August 27 at 9PM ET/PT on Discovery Channel �

(Silver Spring, Md) � In July 1969 the world watched, wondered and worried as three brave astronauts headed for the moon. The extraordinary moment when Neil Armstrong took the first steps on the moon filled earthbound audiences with pride and confidence in scientific endeavor -- but did we really leap into the future, or did NASA pull off the greatest cover-up in human history? On Wednesday, August 27 at 9PM ET/PT, MYTHBUSTERS takes on one of their biggest, most controversial myths ever: Could the moon landing have been an elaborate hoax?

First, Adam and Jamie focus on photos, testing the theory that two of NASA's most famous images were shot in a studio. Then, they investigate the myth about walking on the moon, including how the government shot the footage in a studio and then simply slowed it down for that famous "low-lunar gravity look." Grant, Tory and Kari take on hoax theories involving a vacuum chamber -� specifically, the claims that footage of astronaut footprints and the American flag were physically impossible and had to have been faked. Without water in a vacuum, how could the moon footprints have been so defined? In the absence of wind, can a flag flutter as if caught in a breeze? Finally, Adam and Jamie travel to a New Mexico observatory to see if they can catch a reflection of a man-made object using a laser aimed at the moon.

Currently in its sixth season and airing Wednesdays at 9PM ET/PT on Discovery Channel, MYTHBUSTERS uses science to determine the truth behind urban legends. New MYTHBUSTERS episodes continue on Wednesday, September 3 (Viral Hour), September 10 (Phone Book Friction) and September 17 (Water Stun Gun).
