Did Man Land On The Moon?
The Moon Landing Hoax
Neil Armstrong may have called setting foot on the moon a
small leap for man and giant leap for mankind, but plenty of people still
believe none of the six Apollo space missions ever landed on the moon.
Books, television shows and movies have all been made that
dismiss the moon landings as an elaborate moon landing hoax. Other conspiracy
theorists say the moon landings took place but the pictures and video shown
around the world were not the original footage and actually filmed in the Nevada
desert. Those who dismiss the moon hoax claims have responded with anger at what
they see as the desecration of astronauts afforded near-heroic status.
Much of the evidence cited by those who call the moon
landings a hoax involved the photographs and video seen around the world. The
skeptics point out the absence of stars in any of the pictures. Believers in the
moon landings say sunlight reflected from the surface would have overwhelmed any
starlight, much like when the sun is out on earth.
Supporters of the moon landing hoax theory say the American
flag was seen fluttering in video from the moon landings, when there shouldn’t
have been any wind in airless atmosphere. Believers point out astronauts were
twisting the flag pole at the time, causing the movement. Flag ripples seen in
still photographs were cause by a horizontal rod not being fully extended,
according to those who dismiss the moon hoax idea.
Inconsistent shadows on the lunar surface are also cited as
evidence of the moon hoax, but believers say two dimensional photographs can
never accurately represent a three-dimensional scene.
With arguments continuing to rage for and against,
apparently the only way to know for sure if the moon landings were a hoax is if
you were there.
