Accuracy: This website is based on the Apollo Program 1963-1972. It bullet points dates whetn the various Apollo Missions took off. It also has some information about the Apollo/Saturn flights that had no human life on board. It contains links ot other information about the Apollo Missions and what was found.It is somewhat out of date because the last time it was updated was in 2008, but I find that the information on this website is in sequence with the othe information I have found.

Readability and clarity: This website is easy to follow because it is straight forward and straight to the point. The information missing is who was on board the various missions. Basically, it is a website with dates and links for further information. The audience would be high school or higher education.

Ease of navigation: The site is easy to navigate because it is all links. To get information about a topic, you just have to click on a link.

This information about how it circles around the earth is correct. It is a NASA site, so i do not think they would get it wrong.

Readability and clarity: This site is easy to read because there is not a lot of text. The general audience would be high school student because it does not provide enough information on the topic.

There is a chance that one of the amateur astronomers could misinterpret or explain something wrong, but the professional astronomers would most likely fix it.

The site is against the moon landing conspiracy, so there will not be any agreement with the conspirators side of view.
