Is The Moon Landing Footage Real?

Four decades have passed since Neil Armstrong took that giant leap for mankind On July 16th 1969 America’s space administration, NASA, had fulfilled Kennedy’s pledge that the United States would be the first nation to put a man on the moon by 1970

It took eight years and $25 billion dollars to get Apollo 11 astronauts Armstrong and Buzz Aldrin on the moon* [sounds repetitive and a bit disjointed] It was a definitive Space Race victory against Soviet Russia But after the 6th and final Apollo mission ended in 1972, why haven’t we ever been back? In the Kennedy era, the motivations to dominate space were strong, but the technical obstacles were stronger – so great perhaps, that NASA broadcast a live publicity stunt of the moon landings Amidst the turmoil of the Cold War, the United States and Soviet Union competed for military and technological superiority Out of the missile-based arms race between the two nations, grew the battle for spaceflight capability

And in 1961, the USSR humbled America when Soviet cosmonaut Yuri Gagarin became the first man in space If America was to claim interstellar supremacy, it would have to do something truly momentous In 1976, four years after Apollo 17 made the last journey to the moon, a technical writer called Bill Kaysing, who had access to NASA’s space flight documents, claimed that the moon landings were a hoax In his book, ‘We never went to the moon’, Kaysing calculated that the chance of a successful moon landing was as small as 00017%, because NASA lacked the technical capabilities to fulfil the mission

Nexus publisher Marcus Allen agrees with Kaysing that the difficulty is not getting to the moon, but getting people to the moon And that the main thing stopping us is the James Van Allen radiation belt This is a layer of charged particles held in place by Earth’ magnetic field In order to reach the moon, Apollo astronauts would have to pass through this belt without any lead shielding on their spacecrafts, exposing them to fatal levels of radiation For these reasons, it’s suspected that the footage from NASA’s interstellar missions is entirely staged – That the 1969 moon landing, and the five that followed, were actually filmed within a large sound stage at a Hollywood studio, with production funded by the Walt Disney Company

A moon-landing hoax would be significantly cheaper than actually attempting to send astronauts into outer space And if the footage was convincing enough, then it would still alert Russian to America’s technological prowess It’s even been suggested that filmmaker Stanley Kubrick was behind Apollo missions 11 and 12 During the production of his 1968 movie ‘2001: A Space Odyssey’, it’s thought that Kubrick was secretly approached by NASA to direct the space missions, and employ the film’s advanced special effects to replicate the moon’s landscape Close critique of the footage has led sceptics like Kaysing and Allen to refute the official story even further

We only have to look at the background of the of the NASA photographs In the moon landscape snaps, there are no stars, where millions of twinkling lights should be The flag appears to be moving by a slight breeze as it’s planted in the ground And this rock, which seems to have the letter ‘C’ written on it, gives the impression that this, and the other rocks, are props labelled by a set designer To create the illusion of low gravity, it’s been claimed that the footage was played back 2

5 times slower When you increase the film’s speed, the astronauts appear to be moving to Earth’s gravity And the jumps, it’s assumed, were created using hidden cables Sceptics have also pointed to the moon-landing site: there is no observable blast crater underneath the lunar module With evidence mounting through the decades, it’s no wonder that between 6 and 20% of Americans believe that the moon landings were a hoax

But for every bit of ‘proof’ that the missions were staged, there are countless rebuttals from NASA scientists and filmmakers, in addition to third party evidence that refutes the theory The lunar reconnaissance orbiter and other satellites have captured photographic evidence of the lunar landing sites Hundreds of scientists and geologists – independent of NASA – have analysed the rock samples retrieved from the Apollo missions, and confirmed that they are lunar sediments And as for suspicions over the footage, filmmaker SG Collins explains that the camera technology required to fake the moon landings simply didn’t exist in the 1960s

The moving flag was merely shaken when it was planted in the ground And there are no stars in the images because the camera couldn’t capture their light in a short exposure, next to the light of the sun It’s hard to believe, but in the mid-20th century it was indeed easier to send a man to the moon, than fake a televised space mission
