Buzz Aldrin got active on Twitter on Monday, the 46th anniversary of the Apollo 11 moon landing. He chimed in on the foolish noises by conspiracy theorists claiming on Twitter that the moon landing was faked.
Professor Brian Cox the famed British scientists and BBC science commentator was the first to attack the conspiracy theorists and called anyone who thinks that the Apollo 11 moon landing didn’t happen were “colossal nob ends.”
Brian Cox is a particle physicist, a Royal Society research fellow, and a professor at the University of Manchester. He is a member of the High Energy Physics group at the University of Manchester, and works on the ATLAS experiment at the Large Hadron Collider, CERN near Geneva, Switzerland. He is best known to the public as the presenter of a number of science programmes for the BBC.
I’ve said it before and I’ll say it again – if you don’t think Apollo 11 landed on Moon you are a colossal nob end & should get a new brain

Then the great American astronaut Buzz Aldrin got in on the action calling Brian Cox a smart man and that the Russians would have exposed it by now if it were a hoax.
To mark the 46th anniversary Buzz tweeted this great photo:
