Moon landing a hoax ?

Please watch this video and tell EF what you think ! A hoax ?

Personally i'm convinced that the landing was fake and that the conspiracy theory is true.

Prove me wrong !

Re: Moonlanding a hoax ?

This TV show brought up some interesting ideas, but some of them were fairly easily debunked IIRC. This was from at least 4+ years ago, I was still living in the States when it aired.

What makes you believe the conspiracy theory?

When I was at University (many years ago... ), a professor of mine was convinced it was just a diarama, not real. This was the same semester I had a different professor who insisted that aliens came down and mated with the ancient Egyptians and that's why their heads were elongated.

To me all the theories make sense. The shadows, the wind, Area 51 and the dead astronauts etc. Looks to me like the proofs are overwhelming.

Re: Moonlanding a hoax ?

I started to watch this and like most of these kinds of films, started to find it strangely compelling. What drew me in was the photogaphs. But then I did some googling and found this site:

http://www.clavius.org

It has step-by-step debunking of the various theories. I haven't read them all, but did check out some of the examples about shadows which appear to go in different directions. This site might be a useful companion to act as a counterweight while watching the film?

Re: Moonlanding a hoax ?

I wonder if one could see the equipment they left behind over there ?!

How come that nobody went back to moon since the 70s ?

That's just too strange !

I thought of that too and looked into it. Apparently even with things like the hubble telescope we can't see enough detail on the surface of the moon. Check this wikipedia article for the details. With spy satellites being able to read a newspaper I found that a bit much, but that's what they say... So unless we get some new technology we can't settle that question once and for all.

As I understand it the whole race to the moon thing was nothing more than an exercise in national pride. Since there isn't a soviet threat of missles on the moon, there isn't any reason t go back I suppose. If someone finds oil on it though it could be different...

Moon landings - fake or real?

Did Neil and Buzz walk on the moon?

Discuss - but if you have a viewpoint, back it up with good sources.

I would be delighted to disprove this global conspiracy, but I am too busy building a new tin foil hat .....

Re: Moon landings - fake or real?

The landing was not faked but it might be that the better quality pictures were doctored due to poor quality or even made up but that's only a bone to throw to the conspiracy theorists, as if the might of the KGB would not have made the world aware if anything of such scale had been an hoax...

Re: Moon landing a hoax ?

Buzz was supposed to be the first man on the moon and the commander (Neil) would stay in the module as in previous Apollo missions but as the launch date approached NASA decided that Neil should get out first because his seat was nearest to the hatch.

The endurance of the state of disbelief is a testament to the sheer audacity of the endeavor and the incredible efforts of the 400,000 people working in the Houston area that contributed to the eventual success. But you won't find any non-believers in Houston.

Apollo 8 did most of the work; Neil said that himself. They took an incredible leap forward after the fire 18 months prior when the astronauts burned alive on the launchpad. Jeffrey Kluger's book on the topic is captivating. I can also recommend the album "the race for space" by "public service broadcasting".
