The suggestion that NASA faked the Apollomissions goes back to very first time Neil Armstrong walked on the Moon.
Some believedhe never really went; others believe that he did make it, but the famous footage andphotographs are fake.
To find out more about how and why the landings might have been staged,Second Thought has made this video for you, please check it out, it’s great.
In themeantime, in this video we’ll consider the fact that if the footage were faked, someonehad to fake it.
And the best suspect is legendary director Stanley Kubrick.
And he may have left clues that expose thegreatest hoax in history.
Did Stanley Kubrick Fake The Moon Landings? Not only was Stanley Kubrick an artistic genius,he was a technical wizard.
His groundbreaking film, 2001: A Space Odyssey, made him theobvious suspect to fake the moon landings.
It came out in 1968, over a year before theApollo 11 landing, yet its depiction of weightless space travel is still hailed as the most accuratein cinematic history.
Kubrick is known as the most meticulous filmmakers ever, and heworked closely with NASA and aerospace engineers.
The spaceships and spacesuits were designedin line with actual space travel technology.
Images of the Moon were constructed usingNASA’s best maps of the surface, which is why they still stand up.
The film featuresextensive sequences set on the Moon, which use miniatures and front projected matte paintingsto recreate the process of landing and walking on the desolate moonscape.
Theorist Jay Weidner says a close examinationof NASA footage and still photographs reveals the same camera tricks were used as in Kubrick’ssci-fi epic.
He believes that Kubrick was hired by the U.
government to stage theMoon landings using the technology and equipment he perfected on 2001: A Space Odyssey.
What’smore, Weidner says Kubrick subverted his vow of secrecy by hiding clues to the truth inhis 1980 horror masterpiece, The Shining.
The most obvious allusion to the Moon landingsis in this scene, where young Danny Torrance is playing in the Overlook Hotel.
He is wearingan Apollo 11 sweater, and as he stands up, it is like the rocket is taking off.
Thiswas probably a deliberate visual gag on the Kubrick’s part, given the specially designedcarpet of the hotel has a geometric pattern similar to Apollo 11’s launchpad.
With this in mind, Jay Weidner argues thereare many more references to NASA’s lunar program littered throughout the film.
The food supplies in the hotel include Tang,a powdered fruit drink used by NASA on its manned spaceflights.
More subtly, the numbereleven and the letter ‘A’ are hidden in shapes throughout the sets.
The film begins with the main characters,Jack, Wendy and Danny Torrance, driving along the Going-to-the-Sun Road in the Rocky Mountains.
The classical god of the Sun is Apollo.
Later, when Jack Torrance meets the manager of thehotel, we can see two eagles in the office.
Similarly, Jack’s typewriter is a GermanAdler, or eagle, machine.
The symbol of the Apollo missions was the American bald eagle,and the lunar module itself was named the Eagle.
Meanwhile, the manager’s outfit – comprisingof red, white and blue clothing – means he represents the government.
Jack Torrance,on the other hand, is an author, an independent artist looking for a job to support him andhis family while he works on his next project.
In other words, Jack represents Stanley Kubrick,and the manager represents the government hiring him to work on the Apollo program.
The pressure of the huge task gets to him, and puts a strain on his marriage.
Jack’srant is really Kubrick’s feelings about the dark hoax he perpetrated.
As Jack types, “All work and no play makesJack a dull boy.
” And the nature of the work is hinted at in the typeface: A-1-1 forApollo 11.
It is important to note that The Shining isadapted from the novel of the same name by Stephen King.
But none of the allusions tothe Apollo program were in the book – they were added by Kubrick as part of his changesto the source material.
These included altering the book’s Room 217 to Room 237.
Jay Weidnersays Kubrick changed the number to draw attention to the moon landings.
The average distanceof the Moon from the Earth is 237,000 miles.
237 is also, according to Weidner, the nameof the studio where Kubrick filmed the fake NASA mission.
However, most of these allusions are hardto prove.
The Shining is so layered and visually complex that it lends itself to countlessinterpretations, as demonstrated by documentaries and critics.
Nevertheless, some of the supposedreferences to the Moon are probably misinterpreted.
For instance, the average distance of theMoon from the Earth is over 238,000 miles.
It seems unlikely that the meticulous Kubrickwould make that mistake.
In December 2015, filmmaker T.
Patrick Murraypublished what he claimed was an exclusive interview with legendary director StanleyKubrick.
In it, Kubrick says, “I perpetrated a huge fraud on the American public… involvingthe United States government and NASA… The moon landings were faked… [and] I was theperson who filmed it.
” Kubrick’s widow, Christiane, says the interviewis a complete fabrication.
The double in the video looks very little and sounds nothinglike the real Stanley Kubrick.
Patrick Murray has given no plausible reasonwhy the notoriously private director would have given him an interview, and why he keptthe interview secret for 15 years after Kubrick’s death.
The director’s daughter Vivian made a documentaryusing footage she filmed on the set of The Shining.
In July 2016, she issued a statementstrongly denying the theory that her father faked the moon landings.
She argues that hehad too much artistic integrity and distrust of government lies to ever want to help themcarry out such a gigantic hoax.
Despite claims to the contrary, Stanley Kubricknever said he faked the Moon landings.
The people who knew Stanley Kubrick best – hisfamily and colleagues – all say he never did it, and never would.
Meanwhile, theories aboutclues he planted in The Shining only work if you interpret the film one particular way.
This hasn’t stopped other books and films being inspired by the theory.
There is something interesting in the argumentthat Kubrick’s filmmaking tricks were used by NASA to construct the Apollo 11 footage.
However, NASA insists the footage is real, as do the Apollo astronauts, and the greatdirector himself.
