These fascinating images might do little to dispel conspiracy theories that the 1969 moon landing was faked.

They feature Apollo 11 astronauts Neil Armstrong and Edwin ("Buzz") Aldrin carrying out tasks on a clearly simulated lunar surface.

While the astronauts practice manoeuvres, including collecting soil samples, men in shirts and ties can be seen in the background casually observing the scene.

In fact, these are real training simulations carried out in Houston three months before the actually set foot on the moon.

The practice sessions were carried out over a number of days in April 1969 in Building 9 of the Texas-based U.S. space agency facility. The images were unearthed by tech website Gizmodo.
