Okay, so I looked through your wiki references and the list of people who believe it was a hoax. Unfortunately, I didn't find one astrophysicist or peer-reviewed scientist in their field. There were filmmakers, violinists, and Russian politicians, but I don't see anyone in the field of astrophysics. I have to admit, I didn't know that Hugo Chavez didn't believe, and his name as a reference to the success of something American kind of tickles me.
So, I'll continue wait for that one credible, peer-reviewed scientist. If you don't know what "peer-reviewed" means, you can probably find that on wikipedia as well...
You seem to have the attitude that any scientist could simply go to the press and spill the beans and the press would print all of it all over the country and nothing would happen to said scientist or his family afterwards. You're not considering the fact that the press wouldn't print a word of what he said and that he'd be risking his career and maybe his own life if he were to try to spill the beans.
If science journals are controlled so that only the official version of things can get printed...

...I would wonder if a peer review group was objective.
Here's a guy with a PH.D. who thinks the moon missions were faked.
Look what happened to his YouTube videos.
They seem to have gone the way of Jarrah White's. You can find some of his writings here.

Here's a guy who is talking about things related to his field.
You're also playing down some of the people with science degrees other than astroPhysics on the list.
Dr Stanislav Georgievich Pokrovsky (b. 1959) is a Russian candidate of technical sciences and General Director of the scientific-manufacturing enterprise "Project-D-MSK".
In 2007, he studied the filmed staging of the first stage (S-IC) of the Saturn V rocket after the launch of Apollo 11. Analysing it frame by frame, he calculated the actual speed of the Saturn V rocket at S-IC staging time using four different, independent and mutually verifying methods. With all of them, the calculated speed turned out to be at maximum half (1.2 km/s) of the declared one at that point (2.4 km/s). He concluded that due to this, no more than 28 t could be brought on the way to the Moon, including the spacecraft, instead of the 46 t declared by NASA, and so a loop around the Moon was possible but not a manned landing on the Moon with return to the Earth.
In 2008, Pokrovsky also claimed to have determined the reason why a higher speed was impossible—problems with the Inconel X-750 superalloy used for the tubes of the wall of the thrust chamber of the F-1 engine, whose physics of high-temperature strength was not yet studied at that time. The strength of the material changes when affected by high temperature and plastic deformations. As a result, the F-1 engine thrust had to be lowered by at least 20%. With these assumptions, he calculated that the real speed would be the same as he had already estimated (see above). Pokrovsky proved that six or more F-1 engines (instead of five) could not be used due to the increased fuel mass required by each new engine, which in turn would require more engines, and so on.
Pokrovsky claims that his Saturn V speed estimation is the "first direct proof of the impossibility of the Apollo Moon landing". He says that fifteen specialists with scientific degrees (e.g. Alexander Budnik) who reviewed his paper, of which at least five aerodynamics experts and three narrow specialists in ultrasonic movement and aerosols, raised no objections in principle, and the specific wishes and notes they (e.g. Vladimir Surdin) did have could not change his results significantly even if followed. Pokrovsky compares his own frame-by-frame analysis of the filmed Saturn V flight to the frame-by-frame analysis of the filmed Trinity nuclear test (1945) done by the Soviet academician Leonid Sedov who created his own blast wave theory to estimate the then top secret power of the explosion.
See also author's note below. Pokrovsky's findings about the rocket speed were later confirmed by Alexander Reshnyak and Alexander Popov (see below) and his smoke lag method proven to be valid.
Dr Alexander Ivanovich Popov (b. 1943) is a Russian senior research associate, doctor of physical-mathematical sciences, and author of more than 100 scientific works and inventions in the fields of laser optics and spectroscopy.
Helped by more than forty volunteers, most of which with scientific degrees, he wrote the book "Americans on the Moon" (2009). In it, Popov placed the burden of proof on NASA, and denied all Moon landing evidence, dividing it to five groups:
Visual (photo, film and video) material that can successfully be made on Earth, in cinema studios.
Obvious counterfeits and fakes, when visual material from ordinary space flights on Earth orbit is presented as Moon material.
Space photos, attributed to the astronauts but which by that time could already be made and were made by space robots, including American ones.
Devices on Moon (e.g., light reflectors)—by that time both American and Soviet automatic "messengers" had sent on Moon several tens of similar devices.
Unfounded, unprovable claims, e.g., for about 400 kg of soil, overwhelming part of which NASA keeps safe and gives only grams for checking.
Thus he concluded that the NASA claims on Moon landings are left unproven, and pursuant to science rules, in the absence of trustworthy evidence, the event, in this case the American Moon landings and their loops around the Moon, cannot be considered real, that is, having taken place. He also confirmed Pokrovsky's results for the speed of the Saturn V at S-IC staging time (see above). Popov accused the Politburo of the CPSU Central Committee of trading the 1970s Détente for covering up the US Moon hoax and stopping the Soviet Moon programme.
Dr David Groves, British physicist and holographic computer image analyst. Analysing NASA photo AS11-40-5866, knowing the focal length of the camera's lens, and having an actual boot, he and David Percy (see below) calculated (using ray-tracing) that an artificial light source is 30 ± 6 cm to the right of the camera.
Dr Sergey Andreevich Alexeenko, Russian inventor, candidate of physical-mathematical sciences, Honorary builder of the Baikonur and Plesetsk space launch facilities, member of the Federation of Cosmonautics of Russia, and nuclear weapon test participant.
Bill Wood, American scientist with degrees in mathematics, physics and chemistry, and a space rocket and propulsion engineer who has worked with McDonnell Douglas and engineers who worked on the Saturn V rocket. He attended David Percy's documentary film "What happened on the Moon?
This is nothing to sneeze at.
