July 20, 1969 – One small step for man, one giant lie for mankind. On this day in American history, the moon landing was faked.
The United State’s Apollo 11 was supposedly the first manned mission to land on the moon. Many people however, believe that nobody has ever actually been to the moon, and that NASA has faked all 6 of their moon landings.
In 1961, just two years after the National Aeronautics and Space Administration (NASA), United States President John F. Kennedy announced that he wanted to successfully land a man on the moon before the end of the decade. The former president said that the United States wanted to go to the moon not because the challenge was easy, but because the challenge was hard.
There are many signs of evidence that point toward the moon landing being faked. Some examples are the fact that there were no stars in the lunar sky and also that you could clearly see the American flag rippling when there is no air or wind on the moon. Another piece of evidence is that you could see reflections of light in the corner of photos and shadows pointing in different directions, which both indicate that there were multiple light sources.
Another reason why people believe the moon landing did not happen is the Van Allen Zone. This is a radiation zone surrounding planet Earth that would have been impossible to go through without dowsing astronauts with lethal doses of radiation.
Some people suggest that the United States faked the 1969 moon landing to win the Space Race and beat the Soviet Union in the pursuit of spaceflight dominance. One theory suggest that the landing was faked on a secret movie set somewhere in the Hollywood Hills while others think it happened in perhaps one of the most secretive places in America, Area 51.
An 83-year-old former Hollywood cameraman, Stanley Kubrick said in 2016 that the moon landing was filmed in North London and that he was the one holding the camera.
Real or not, the 1969 Apollo 11 moon landing did accomplish the goal of helping the United States win the Cold War. While this hard to believe conspiracy theory may seem very far-fetched, it sure is a interesting idea.
