Was the moon landing fake? conspiracy theory explained

To overtake the Soviet Union, NASA led the first crew of astronauts to the moon in 1969.

However, conspiracy theorists doubt that the monumental event actually took place.

Was the moon landing fake?

Since Neil Armstrong and Buzz Aldrin were the first people to ever set foot on the moon, detectives speculated the whole thing never happened.

To prove the moon landing was a hoax, sharp-eyed theorists pointed to images from the day of the first entry.

Why does the American flag from the moon landing have ripples?

In a photograph taken that day, the second man on the moon, Aldrin, is pictured with the American flag on the lunar surface.

In this image, critics pointed out that the flag Aldrin planted is flapping in the wind.

The fluttering flag seems difficult to explain because, scientifically speaking, the moon has no weather.

The moon’s gravitational pull does not allow it to retain any gases from its formation phase, which explains the lack of climate.

For this reason, theorists argue that the flag should not be flown.

This argument has been disproved because scientists have stated that the flag does not actually fly.

In fact, it wasn’t a typical prop you could buy.

If the flag were a regular one sold in stores, the item would have fallen to the ground or lost its balance when the astronauts tried to set it up.

The one pictured with Aldrin is being specially made by NASA for their expedition teams to take with them.

The NASA-made flags in the photo had waves because the atypical horizontal bar made it difficult for the Apollo 11 astronauts to fully deploy the object.

Why are there no stars in the moon landing photos?

The photos of the Apollo 11 crew members were taken during the day.

At that time, the lunar surface was illuminated by sunlight.

The white spacesuits worn by the expedition team were highly reflective, causing light to focus on the suits rather than the background.

Also, the exposure from the cameras used that day did not last long enough to capture the surrounding stars.

Why are the shadows in the moon landing images out of balance?

Detectives have pointed out that objects that should have been covered by shadows are still clearly visible in the images from the event.

Theorists argue that these objects should not be visible when the sun is the only light in space.

This adds to the skepticism about the historical event as people claim that the objects that shouldn’t be seen are exposed because of the Hollywood lighting.

Sunlight reflects off the moon’s surface and the resulting illumination illuminates the ground, also disproving this theory.

What is the Stanley Kubrick theory?

Skeptics and moviegoers have even gone so far as to say that the moon landing was a hoax orchestrated by Stanley Kubrick, the filmmaker of The Shining.

The theories arose when critics began comparing footage from the event to the fictionalized depiction of outer space seen in Kubrick’s 1968 film 2001: A Space Odyssey.

The film’s seemingly realistic imagery had viewers wondering if the US government had hired Kubrick to stage the moon landing on a Hollywood soundstage.

The fact that the film’s release date preceded the event by a year only fueled the rumors further.

On December 10, 2015, moon landing deniers seemed to get the confirmation they were looking for when allegedly leaked footage of a lost interview by T. Patrick Murray was released.

In the audio, a Kubrick-like character tells Murray, “I committed a huge fraud on the American public, which I will now explain in detail, involving the United States government and NASA.

“The moon landings were fake, that the moon landings were all fake and that I was the person who filmed it.

“I’m serious. Deadly serious. Yes, it was wrong. 2001 was very ambitious.

“That’s not to say it wasn’t ambitious in faking the moon landing. But I learned a lot while filming 2001, and that’s why I got this gig in the first place.”

The person in the audio has been found to be an impersonation of the late director and the interview has since been debunked.

Although Murray insists it was the real Kubrick, his claims that the interview was conducted in May 1999 worked against him.

That would be impossible as Kubrick died in March of that year.

When was the moon landing?

Thanks to the Apollo 11 expedition, NASA made its first moon landing on July 20, 1969.

In the following order, crew members Armstrong, Aldrin, and Michael Collins went down in history as the first three people to walk on the moon.

Between 1969 and 1972 there were six more US trips to Earth’s only satellite.

The last mission was carried out between December 7th and 19th, 1972.
