First Chang'e 1 Moon Photo Surrounded by Controversy

The first photograph of China's lunar satellite, Chang'e 1 was controversial in that it was said by some to be similar to one taken by NASA in 2005 and that the two photographs could very well be the same one. But Chinese space program officials denied the allegations, saying the same site photographed at different times would definitely appear similar.

It isn't the first time that missions to the Moon have been said to be faked by some. There are still people who believe that the United States fabricated the Apollo lunar landings.
