Proof the Moon Landings are Real,
* Soviets monitored the Apollo mission transmissions they could and vice versa whenever possible.
* Apollo's Lunar Module puts off a fraction of that of a Harrier II, or about the same amount of thrust as a 747 does while taxiing on the runway (~5% of max) Luggage and Airport Workers do not scatter to the wind when a 747 is leaving the terminal, nor are any craters created.
* Soviets sent animals around the moon (Zond 5) and returned them to Earth. None of the tortoises were fried by the Van Allen Belt.
* Apollo 8 orbited the moon and returned to Earth, passing through the Van Allen Belt.
* Neither the LOK or other Soviet Designs for crossing the Van Allen Belt - including the above Zond mission which actually did cross the Van Allen Belt - had a meter of Lead Shielding. The NASA Vehicles also did not have a meter of Lead Shielding or anything like it.
* Also, if the radiation will fry a living creature, it would certainly absolutely ruin film taken from the dark side of the moon. Think about the airport, removing film from your bag prior to going into scanning machines, which put off a fraction of the emissions for a much shorter period of time.

Should felons be able to create money?,
Create Credit by fiat, and then tax it back if the system gets overheated and destroy it.
Or, switch to labor-based currency, where the amount of capital in the system is equal to (probably somewhat more than) the amount of labor done.
These two systems would largely bypass middlemen, so they would be strongly disliked by financial entities.

The Moon is basalt junk rock, no point in going there again.
We could also learn if 38%G is livable for humans, without killing them via terrible osteoporosis, but for some reason NASA won't even spin a spacecraft for a few hours on a tether.
Yep - Seems to me the priorities are:
Building a (mostly) Closed System that tests a closed station and attempts to produces food reliably on Earth; once to original inputs are made, other than solar, it keeps itself going or expands.
Artificial Gravity in Space.
Grab an asteroid, put it in orbit, and start hollowing it out.
The last two are do-able right now. The first needs really serious attempts, the closest being BIOS-3 and Mars-500
. The Biodomes 1 and 2 were jokes from the beginning.
