Welcome back my fellow learners, today we are going to learn about if the moon landings were the biggest cover up since Roswell, read on and draw your own conclusions.
The theory which states the moon landings were a hoax perpetrated by the US government to gain a victory in the space over Russia, is something that has grown in popularity as time has gone by.
Statistics indicate that around 20% of Americans think the U.S. never landed on the moon. After the Apollo landings finished in the seventies, why is it we have never gone back? Only during Richard Nixon's term did we land on the moon, and after Watergate people wouldn’t put it past Tricky Dick to create a hoax to put America back into good standing in the Cold War.
In this list I have collated some of evidence to suggest the moon landings never happened. I have included NASA’s explanations with each entry to offer a more objective perspective.
Conspiracy theorists point out that when the first landing was seen on live television, viewers could see the American flag waving in the breeze, as Neil Armstrong and Buzz Aldrin installed it. Photos of the landing seem to show a breeze. The obvious problem is there’s no air in the atmosphere, and therefore no wind would make the flag ripple.
Countless explanations have been given to disprove this phenomenon as anything out of the ordinary, NASA stated the flag was kept within a thin tube and the rippling was created by it unfurling before it was planted. Other explanations are the ripples were caused by the reaction of the astronauts touching the pole, which is shown to shake in the footage.
Had NASA really gone to the moon, there would be a blast crater beneath the lunar module to show where it landed. On any video footage or pictures, no crater is seen, almost as though it was just put there. The surface of the moon has a covering of fine dust, and even this doesn’t seem to be displaced in any photographic pictures or video footage.
