Did Men Really Land on the Moon?

The world is full of conspiracy theories about the moon landings. Anyone with a TV could have caught up with the latest one in the form of TV show Ascension which dramatizes the idea of space travellers who don’t leave the Earth. In that one the participants aren’t aware that they aren’t in space, whereas conspiracy theorists believe that the likes of Neil Armstrong and Buzz Aldrin were aware that they hadn’t left America when Apollo 11 was pictured up in space.

Evidence

There’s no real evidence to support any claim that man didn’t walk on the moon but there’s plenty to suggest that the astronauts aboard Apollo 11 did set foot on another planet on 21st July 1969. When a Japanese probe sent back images in 2008 they were compared with images taken during the moon walk. When the pictures were compared the terrain in the background of the Apollo landings and the terrain pictured in 2008 matched exactly.

NASA cover up

If the moon landings were a hoax all those years ago, then China's Chang'e 2 lunar probe and the Indian Chandrayaan-1 probe would not have been able to spot evidence of the landings. These nations wouldn’t work in cahoots with the Americans to cover up a lie.

Flags

The biggest claim made by conspiracy theorists is that the American flag should not have been flapping when it was planted into the moon’s surface. That’s just silly. There’s no wind on the moon so conspiracy theorists jumped to the wrong conclusion and said that these images were faked in a studio in the USA. There’s momentum and inertia in space, that’s why the flag was moving. There was a pole along the top of the flag to keep it in place or it would have drooped downwards. NASA knew putting the flag into the moon’s surface would be a massively symbolic and important event so they prepared for it well.
