No, The Moon Landings Weren’t Faked. (And Here’s How You Can Tell.)

When you write about space as much as I do (and use a laptop with a big NASA sticker on the cover no less) you’re more than occasionally going to hear the question: did we really land on the Moon? (That, and “do you believe in UFOs?” My answer: not as credible evidence of aliens, no.) And with this year (2014) marking the 45th anniversary of the Apollo 11 Moon landing — which, by the way, most definitely happened — and this particular weekend being 45 years since the Apollo 10 “dress rehearsal” lunar orbiting mission, I thought I’d assemble a list of a few oft-quoted  “proofs” of a grand-scale Moon landing hoax… and then let you know why they’re completely wrong.

You may have heard a few of these before:

1. The flag is waving.

This is one of the biggest claims waved around (yes, pun intended) by conspiracy fanatics. When the U.S. flag was placed by Armstrong and Aldrin and recorded by the TV camera they’d previously set up, it appears to be waving in a non-existent lunar breeze. But there’s no atmosphere on the Moon, how can there be a breeze to blow a flag around?

This isn’t proof of location on a Disney sound stage in Burbank. The flag isn’t “waving,” it’s swinging.

First of all the U.S. flag was hanging from a telescoping rod along its top to keep it extended, but it wouldn’t extend all the way. And when planting the flagpole, the astronauts had a difficult time getting very far into the lunar surface… after a few inches they hit some pretty solid stuff. The struggle to keep it upright for a good photo-op meant that it got some pretty vigorous shaking, and this resulted in a lot of movement. The Moon doesn’t have an atmosphere (aside from some sparsely-scattered ions and dust) but it does have gravity—about one-sixth of Earth’s—and a well-shaken banner will still wave… just not by any wind. In fact once they were done fussing with the flagpole, it stayed still for the remainder of the mission.

“During a pause in experiments, Neil suggested we proceed with the flag. It took both of us to set it up and it was nearly a disaster.”
– Buzz Aldrin

Unfortunately as soon as the ascent stage of the LM launched, returning Neil and Buzz to lunar orbit to meet back up with Michael Collins in the CM, the entire flag was blown over—but from the force of the ascent rockets, not wind. With the flag planted so close to the LM the downward thrust of the rockets was strong enough to push the shallowly-planted flag over. (Luckily Newtonian physics work very well in space, otherwise we’d never get anywhere!) Later missions put their flags a bit farther away.

(Note: the original TV broadcast of the Moon landing was blurry, no doubt, but there’s a reason for that; the “oddball” slow-scan signal developed by Westinghouse that was received and converted by the Australian Parkes and Honeysuckle Creek dishes was much, much clearer. But those versions will unfortunately never be seen again and here’s why.)

2. If there’s no atmosphere on the Moon, where are the stars in the photos?

This is Photography 101. The Apollo astronauts were using several types of cameras to record their lunar adventures, one being modified medium-format Hasselblad 500 EL cameras mounted to their spacesuits. (This was the one Neil used.) These were film cameras and had to be set just right to get pictures to develop correctly—not unlike today’s digital cameras, but without the convenience of auto mode! All the astronauts went through training on how to shoot with the cameras, so when they got to the Moon they were able to take some really great shots of the surface in beautiful 70mm detail. (Check out the Project Apollo Archive for hi-res scans of the color and black-and-white film they shot.)

Daytime on the Moon is about two Earth weeks long. (A full solar “synodic” day there takes 29.5 Earth days.) All the Apollo surface EVAs took place on the side facing Earth during the lunar daytime. This means that the Sun was in the sky, illuminating the surface and everything the astronauts were doing… including taking pictures. So even though there was no atmosphere above them, the astronauts still had to expose their cameras to account for a very bright lunar landscape (and in some instances with a very big white star we call the Sun in the sky.) They were there to explore the Moon, not the stars, and so they didn’t waste any film taking astrophotos.

Long story short, in order to capture stars in their photos they would have had to expose for them in camera, which would have resulted in a very blown-out, blurry lunar surface. (Plus they didn’t bring along tripods for long exposures.) Think about it—if you took pictures outside at night, and let your camera adjust for a well-lit object or scene, even if there was a sky full of stars above you at the time they wouldn’t be visible in your picture. It’s just how cameras work—they simply can’t adjust like your eyes do.

Learn more about the lunar cameras here.

NOTE: Actually there was a tripod-mounted camera used on the Moon: the Far Ultraviolet Camera/Spectrograph brought on Apollo 16. That instrument DID take astrophotos, but in ultraviolet wavelengths. Not only did it capture LOTS of stars but also Earth, the aurorae, and distant galaxies…from the Moon! Learn about that here.

3. You can still see things in the shadows. They should be completely black with no air to scatter light.

Well, yes and no. It’s true that light on Earth is scattered by the atmosphere, and so we can see even where sunlight isn’t directly illuminating a scene. And in space, shadows can be incredibly dark because of the lack of this effect. But there is still reflected light, and the lunar surface is reflective.

When Neil photographed Buzz descending the ladder onto the Moon’s surface, you can still see him pretty well even though he’s clearly in the shadow of the LM. This is the result of reflected light from the Sun hitting the lunar regolith and bouncing back up into the shadows, not “another source of artificial illumination” claimed by some conspiracists. Again, no atmosphere doesn’t negate the physics of how light works—after all, the Moon is pretty dark in color yet we see it as a very bright object in the night sky, especially when full. This is a ready testament to its reflectivity (and even then it’s still only reflecting 12% of the sunlight it receives.)

Also don’t forget that in addition to the Sun, the Earth was in the sky above the Apollo astronauts—and it was also reflecting sunlight onto the Moon, just like the Moon does onto Earth.

Want an example of how this worked? Check out Ian Goddard’s demonstration site here, and see the results of an experiment on Discovery Channel’s “Mythbusters” here. Added 9/22/14: see an article on Nerdist.com here regarding reflected sunlight from a space-suited Neil Armstrong.

4. The shadows in the photos were uneven.

Therefore alternate lighting sources? No, therefore uneven terrain. Single-source lighting on a perfectly flat plane will result in perspective-aligned shadows, but on an uneven surface the shadows will “appear” to slant off at different angles as they are projected across the ground.  The Moon pretty much has no perfectly flat planes—it’s cratered and hilly down to the smallest scales. Shadows cast by the Sun will be skewed all over the place. (See the link above for a sample of that too.)


Apollo 16 astronauts John Young and Charlie Duke got to drive a Boeing-made Lunar Roving Vehicle (LRV) on the Moon, one of three sent up during the Apollo program. Note how the dust is kicked up in nice billowing arcs by the LRV’s wheels… that’s not Earth gravity in action!

5. Radiation would have killed the astronauts en route to the Moon.

Radiation in space is very dangerous. Nobody’s contesting that fact. Even a thickly-hulled spacecraft can allow in enough cosmic radiation to damage living DNA over long durations, and outside of Earth’s protective magnetosphere it becomes an even bigger danger. This in fact is still a major obstacle to overcome if we’re to send humans to Mars or beyond. But the Apollo astronauts weren’t on a year-long voyage to Mars, they were on week-long trips to the Moon. Even the Van Allen belts, which concentrate energetic particles from the Sun into donut-shaped rings surrounding Earth, were passed through pretty quickly by the Apollo spacecraft on their way Moonward.

A pretty clear explanation is given by astronomer Phil Plait in his 2001 Bad Astronomy article:
“The van Allen belts are regions above the Earth’s surface where the Earth’s magnetic field has trapped particles of the solar wind. An unprotected man would indeed get a lethal dose of radiation, if he stayed there long enough. Actually, the spaceship traveled through the belts pretty quickly, getting past them in an hour or so. There simply wasn’t enough time to get a lethal dose, and, as a matter of fact, the metal hull of the spaceship did indeed block most of the radiation.”

(If you really want to get into the math of how the radiation environment of the Van Allen Belts were quite survivable by astronauts, even in the late 1960s, click here.)

Now, had the Apollo astronauts been in the way of a strong solar flare event while on the lunar surface, it would have been a different story. Protected only by their space suits, they could have received a lethal dose of solar radiation very quickly as a cloud of particles swept past the Earth and Moon. Luckily that didn’t happen, but it was an occupational hazard. (Although compared to the countless other dangers they confronted in order to achieve their goals that was somewhat low on the list.)

6. We didn’t have the technology in the 60s to go to the Moon.

This is a total cop-out argument. Yes, 1960s technology was far inferior to what we have today; even our cell phones contain vastly more computing power than what was aboard the Apollo spacecraft. But the Apollo spacecraft only had to know how to do one thing: get living, breathing astronauts to the Moon and back. This was achieved through complex engineering and the efforts of many thousands of the brightest minds in the country, not to mention a few fearless astronauts who knew a thing or two about flying experimental aircraft. Getting to the Moon was a case of pure physics, dedication, and guts… the required innovations just came as a direct result. Read more here on Clavius.org.

Also as a technical note, the circuitry and components of Apollo spacecraft were relatively enormous by today’s standards—they literally were big enough to avoid getting knocked offline by stray atomic particles. These days we have to take much more care shielding sensitive space electronics from radiation. (Thanks to spacecraft software engineer Emory Stagmer for the info.)

As far as NASA having created all the footage of the landings in a studio, it actually would have been easier at the time to just go to the Moon…

(And before you claim that Stanley Kubrick confessed to filming the whole Moon landing in a “documentary”…um, NO.)

7. Fact: we’ve imaged all the Apollo landing sites from lunar orbit.

NASA’s Lunar Reconnaissance Orbiter has been surveying the Moon for five years now, and during that time has imaged all of the Apollo landing sites from its position in lunar orbit. Several times, in fact, and under many different lighting angles. So while we can’t visually resolve the remains of the Apollo sites from Earth (simply due to the angular resolution limitations of telescopes) LRO can see them very nicely… LM descent stages, ALSEPs. LRVs, and astronaut tracks all as they were left over 40 years ago.

The descent stage of Eagle can be seen in this LRO image, along with tracks and experiment packages. (NASA/LRO/Arizona State University)

Don’t want to believe anything NASA has to say regarding the landing sites? That’s OK—China said it was able to see the remains of the Apollo 11 site with the Chang’e-2 orbiter back in 2012 and Japan’s Kaguya orbiter was able to discern the bright “halo” on the lunar surface from Apollo 15’s July 30, 1971 landing in 2008.

8. Okay smart guy, so if we REALLY went to the Moon, how come we never went back?

This, unfortunately, has more to do with the nature of politics and public interest than space technology, although the latter often becomes a casualty of the former. There’s a lot involved with the answer to this (and you can read about some of it in this article on Scientific American featuring space historian David S.F. Portree) but suffice to say after the Apollo program was closed down, the technology to send humans to the Moon was retired. The Saturn V rockets were either dismantled, put in museums, or, in the case of Skylab, used in other programs, and eventually all of the special components created by contractors and sub-contractors that allowed the success of Saturn and Apollo were no longer available or in production. We didn’t lose the technology, as some have claimed, we just stopped making it, at least for those specific uses. As times changed, priorities (and thus budgets) changed, and NASA’s manned spaceflight program of the 60s and early 70s became a thing of the past, in some cases replaced by newer, better goals… but in some cases still not replaced at all.

Is it a shame that the last bootprints on the Moon are still those of Gene Cernan from December 1972? Heck yes. Does it mean he never went at all? Hell no.

Read more in this article by Space.com’s Clara Moskowitz.

The Apollo missions are still one of the crowning achievements (in my opinion, at least) of both our country and of humanity as a whole. Yes, the reasons behind the race to the Moon in the 60s were very political, that’s surely no secret. But in just eight years we went from sending the first American on a brief suborbital flight to safely landing astronauts on the surface of another world and bringing them home again, an incredible feat accomplished only through the talent and hard work of literally hundreds of thousands of people—over 400,000, in fact (source)—and the support and financial backing of an entire nation. Reasons aside, the summer of 1969 changed both the global political landscape and our perspective of our place in the Universe, and that’s not something to be dismissed lightly… or with wanton disregard for all those who made it happen.

And, of course, let’s not forget the undeniable 842 pounds of Moon rocks that the Apollo astronauts brought back to Earth with them (rocks that are still standing up to microscopic scrutiny even today by geologists) and the laser ranging reflectors that were left up there and still being used to measure distances to the Moon today!

“The body of physical evidence that humans did walk on the Moon is simply overwhelming.”
– Dr. Robert Park, Director of the Washington office of the American Physical Society

…and after all this, if you still must believe that the Apollo missions were all just an elaborate global scam, I’m afraid I really can’t help you (like Schmitt said in the quote above.). The world you choose to live in is much, much more dark, tangled, and subversive than I care to venture into. I’m just sorry that you have so little faith in what humans can achieve. (Just don’t try to confront Buzz Aldrin with your silly claims. Save us, Buzz!)

  1. And my favorite debunk to the non-believers:
    If we never went to the moon, why didn’t the Soviets call our bluff? They had every opportunity AND the technology to prove it AND every motivation to do so. Anybody who knows anything about the 1960’s politics clams up on this one 🙂

If the Soviets (the people in power) would have declared the hoax they would have been put in a position where they would have looked upon as soar losers. After all, what was shown on TV was proof back then. It’s not like today where people are skeptical of the Media. Back then, the Media WAS GOD.

      • Response to RW who says Russians and Chinese just said the moonlandings were fake. I suggest you do a little more research about the two news sources quoted (or maybe even just read the full story).

        The report says – According to the translation in the Moscow Times, Mr Markin claimed Russia were ‘not contending that they did not fly (to the moon) and simply made a film about it.’ They are in fact demanding an investigation into how the footage was lost.

        And further on the article says – “All of these scientific – or perhaps cultural – artefacts are part of the legacy of humanity, and their disappearance without a trace is our common loss.”

        Hardly a ringing endorsement for the Monn Conspiracy Theorists.

        As to the Chinese report. I would suggest that someone is messing with your head if you believe this to be a credible news source. Firstly, I seriously doubt that the Chinese Foreign Minister actually said “Ha ha ha ha ha! Pig dogs!” in reference to the US.

        The report says that the Chinese robot was equipped with something akin to Edward Scissor Hands to shred any US flags they found, and also had feet with boots on them so they could “kick around” any artefacts they found. Seriously! You believe that?? You believe that a senior minister in the Chinese Government said that!!

        Finally, the Chinese robot landed on the lunar surface nowhere near where any of the moon landings took place. The information regarding the coordinates of the Chinese robot landing are readily available – from the Chineses. The Chinese also say the robot operated in a 1 square mile radius. Not surprisingly, if you dont land near an Apollo site and you only walk around one square mile, you probably won’t find any evidence of a previous landing. It’s a bit like saying that you strolled around a few blocks of lower Manhatten and proved that polar bears don’t exist because you didn’t see any.

        Please find some credible evidence you numbskull!

      Also, there was a lots of discussion about, is this is hoax or not at this moment – during the landing. Trust me – in Russia, there were lots of people, who tried to point out, that this was hoax, all the time 🙂
      Also CPPP has been really proud, that they could track location of every Apollo ship during it fly to the Moon. There was even opinion, that NASA thanked them for help with localization of Apollo 13.

    • im glad you mentioned the soviets, if we really did go to the moon and it is possible to safely get there like driving to the local mall here on earth that many claim it is that easy to do, then why didn’t the soviets go? oh that’s right they wouldn’t want to waste money doing something that was already done. why did the US put satellites in orbit if the soviets beat us to it. why did the US put a man in orbit if the soviets beat us to it? in Antarctica there are research stations from many different countries, why? why should other countries go there if the first country to put a research station there already beat the other countries? same with the moon, if hypothetically the US landed on the moon, why would that stop the soviets? the soviet government had tons of money in their space program.

      they even had moon landers already built and ready to go, so why didn’t they if it is so easy to get to the moon? that’s because it isn’t easy to get there. radiation in space is deadly and they had no radiation shielding. it was known even in NASA circles that the US couldn’t do it. radiation being an issue, which it really is. you can’t say that they went through the radiation quickly so they didn’t get much exposure. that’s like me saying if i run through the pouring rain fast enough without an umbrella i won’t get as wet.

      why fake it? simple. money, particularly aerospace contracts and military contracts. also public image. when kennedy announced that the US would put a man on the moon, he put NASA on the spot. the world was watching. with all eyes on NASA they had to achieve this no matter what. national pride was at stake. the Russians had beat the US into space with the first satellite and the first man in orbit. The US had to show the world that a capitalistic and democratic government could achieve the unreachable and send a man to the moon and get him back again, alive. as the years went on NASA realized it couldn’t guarantee the safe return of the astronauts. i mean think about if for a minute, all those missions to the moon and not one mistake? not one circuit going bad during the trip. then there was Apollo 13, a disaster in space and not to mention, incidentally, when viewership was at an all time low. now throw in a mishap and get the attention of the world again. notice how there was only one major mishap during all the trips to the moon and back. with all the things that could go wrong, only one mission was diverted due to a malfunction. statistically speaking i can’t see how it could be possible, except, if it was all staged and the astronauts never really went OR there were in fact astronauts that did go and in the process gave their lives or managed to survive but keep quiet while the other astronauts, neil armstrong, buzz aldrin, and michael collins took the credit.

      another theory i have is that neil, buzz and michael went but used alien technology (with human tech) gathered from crashed ufo’s which would be difficult to explain to audiences. this last theory of alien tech would also explain why the russians did not go. the russians might not have figured out a way to incorporate alien tech with human tech. the alien tech protected the astronauts from cosmic radiation and they landed effortlessly using anti-gravity tech. also it would explain the transmissions picked up by ham radio operators hearing neil armstrong describe silver ships on the surface of the moon. NASA was aware of a base on the moon since they sent unmanned probes to take pictures before the Apollo missions. it was also stated by Neil Armstrong that the alien beings on the moon do not want us there and that could explain why we never went back after Apollo 17. although one could speculate that after the first mission to the moon we never went back and all subsequent missions were faked since the moon owners told us that the moon is off limits to humans for whatever reason. maybe we can go there but only when the time is right. also it might have been during the first mission that evidence was placed on the moon surface because NASA figures that this is a monumental event and that in future years some might look for evidence of the landing which was done by alien tech and not human tech so it was thought to leave evidence of man going to the moon.

      the main thing is that i don’t believe all of NASA was in on the fake landing or blame anyone in NASA or even the astronauts. NASA and the astronauts will forever be my heroes. If there was subterfuge committed i believe it was for the benefit of national pride, to spur the US economy, and to also protect the world, at that time, from information that they wouldn’t be able to handle such as an alien base on the moon. i do feel that since much time has passed that it is now time to be honest with the world and let everyone know the truth. alien technology has been given to the world that can eliminate the need for fossil fuels but has been kept from us by the greedy corporations that control our world. I’m an American but i seek the truth as a fellow HUMAN wanting to save our planet from corporations.

It’s not the radiated or not radiated; it’s the degree of exposure. I read the rest and am still laughing at you. Thanks – brightened up my day.

    • emorys said: “And my favorite debunk to the non-believers:
      If we never went to the moon, why didn’t the Soviets call our bluff? They had every opportunity AND the technology to prove it AND every motivation to do so. Anybody who knows anything about the 1960’s politics clams up on this one”

      oh i wont clam up on that one. that’s easy to answer. you are forgetting that among scientist circles information was given back and forth between the US and the Soviet Union. all that saber rattling by the US government and the Soviet government was just play acting. the US had gathered info about UFO’s and so did the Soviets. Scientists from each country would often communicate and share findings and discuss the beings that created the UFO’s. Scientists care about one thing, science! they do not care so much about politics and that kind of crap. since the scientists on both sides share info and info about the moon since the russians had landed a lunar rover there in 66 i believe. the rover gathered tons of rock samples and so forth which by the way would come in quite handy later on when the US needed to have lunar rock samples from a trip that might not have occurred, you know what i mean?

      so getting back to why the soviets would keep their mouths shut. simple. money.

      hypothetically a US official contacts the russian government and says to them that the US space program is kind of sucky and we just don’t have the tech to get to the moon, if you guys go along with this hoax we are planning, this billion US dollars can end up in the soviet premier’s bank account, and all you have to do is say nothing. what do you think the soviet leader is going to do? oh and the deal is sweetened by this mysterious US official saying, AND there’s more where that came from once we get all those aerospace deals and defense contracts to send satellites into orbit to spy on you guys, then the conversation ends with a lot of laughing, and cigar chomping.

      now you might say that that sounds like a bunch of crap but how do you know it didn’t take place? how do you know? you can say your gut tells you but i could easily say my gut tells me it did take place or something to that effect. there’s a theory that all this enemy stuff between nations and even terrorists is all made up as a smoke screen. to distract us from the real evil in the world. the rich men who pull the strings. 9/11 also orchestrated to distract us and tell us that our enemy is terrorists and we better give up our freedom (patriot act) and we have to spend more on defense, we need drones to spy and more spy satellites, but who are they really spying on?

      so getting back to the moon landings, yeah they were probably faked. Russia played along and the same can be said for China. money has a way of making people or even governments see things any way you want them to see something. also a promise of even more money in the billions or should i dare say trillions? call it US aid to china, there’s big holes in the US spending budget and no one can explain where the money went. black projects, bribes, hush money whatever you want to call it. you think the mob is the only organization to give pay offs? the mob and the US government are one and the same, who do you think assassinated JFK? the mob and the CIA.

      I digress, i’m getting off topic. the russians would go along with a US hoax because if you remember in history class on November 6 and 7, 1917 (or October 24 and 25 on the Julian calendar, which is why this event is also referred to as the October Revolution), leftist revolutionaries led by Bolshevik Party leader Vladimir Lenin launched a nearly bloodless coup d’état against the provisional government, and bullets cost bucks, buddy (hmm, maybe i’ll get that tattooed on my chest) and revolutions cost even more. got to get your guns from somewhere and they aren’t free. US bankers at that time were greedy sons of bitches, just like they are today, and funded the revolution in Russia which then became the Soviet Union. why you might ask would US Bankers do this? they realized that war means profits and huge profits! So later on many decades later when the US asked Russia for a little itsy bitsy favor like not telling the world that the moon landing is a hoax, how could they say no?
      sweeten the deal with a little monetary bribe like i mentioned earlier and Russia’s lips are sealed.

      where as most Americans forget historical things and countries that helped, such as if it wasn’t for France’s navy the American revolution might not have gone so well, other nations not so forgetful. Perhaps the Soviets felt they owed us since if it wasn’t for US bankers financing their little revolution, they might not have done so well. You could say all of this is conjecture but i guess we will never know.

      that is really the truth of things when it comes to the powers that be. they can do things and can we ever really know what they are up to or know the truth? meetings could take place and how would we ever know?

    • The Apollo suits were climate-controlled and had multiple layers of insulation as well as liquid cooling lines. They were in themselves like mini-spaceships. The return capsule was rotated so the heat shield deflected the friction of re-entry; slowing down was a matter of physics (and parachutes).

      • You need a cloud of air to use a parachute yet retardation from 11,000m/sec should be done way before the return capsule reaches the outer most layer of the planet, so that it enters at a velocity that will have less impulse and friction.

      That is because if you took a long enough exposure, seconds to minutes long depending on settings, a Moon in such a photo would look more like a glowing light bulb than the Moon.

      Go outside and see what kind of exposure you need to use to get stars, or even the Moon to show up in a photo. Guarantee you try it at daylight level settings you won’t even get a faint Moon. And try and take photos of stars while hand holding your camera to see what you get.

  21. Forget the first landing and set it aside, look at the last trip video, the Apollo 17 trip. In this video of the last trip, one of the men tries to help stick something in the moons ground. He looses his balance and starts to fall, as he falls he kicks some sort of tripod and instead of it floating when kicked into the air (with no gravity on the moon ), it flies up in slow motion and then down in slow motion hitting the ground and bouncing back and forth before it comes to a stop. And it looks just like it would here on earth if it were kicked the same way, it and the men in the space suits in the video all appeared to move in slow motion. There are several things in all the videos of the moon trips, when pointed out by many people that make sense, that prove man walking on the moon never took place. And another thing, ahhhhh, if we did go to the moon 40 something years ago and we had that kind of technology back then, well, then where is the advanced, unbelievable technology now. I don’t see it. I mean, looks like if we were on the moon in the 60’s and 70’s and had that kind of talent back then, where is the huge advancement from then to today? Think about it, seriously.

It is in human nature to ask questions, when questions go unanswered we ask more questions. It was once ‘fact’ that the world was flat, what would have become if we did not question that? Unfortunately you are dealing with the credibility of a non credible source. The United States government has proven itself to be untrustworthy and untruthful many times, and continues to do so. Once the United States government (and many others) become more truthful, things like the moon landing will become much easier too believe. Until then, no matter which side of the fence you sit on, you’re screaming into the wind.

  31. The u.s. Has been to the moon six times. That’s a fact. There is plenty of evidence and proof to back it up. It’s misinformation from conspiracy theorists and paranoid people with vivid imaginations that confuse the facts. I agree when people call each other names, naturally people disagree with one another. For some, their minds are already made up, and no amount of moonrocks, photos, or facts will make some people believe we landed on the moon. They just aren’t informed enough about space, rocket science or physics. That’s why it’s best left to the people who really know, what happened that’s the scientists at nasa. Despite what hoax believers want to believe. Once people get better educated, they can understand it was real and not a hoax. Funny how hoaxers believe they are so smart, when believing conspiracy sites filled with bad science, but think nasa and everyone else is a liar. I say it’s great to ask questions, but remember, you have a right to your own opinion, but you don’t have a right to your own facts.

  32. A single falsification unravels thousands of “proofs”.

    Here is the falsification.

    Charlie Duke destroys the Apollo myth with three little taps of a rock.

    There are sounds that are quite impossible to exist in a vacuum all throughout the footage.

    To make an excuse will require rewriting physics.

    I have confirmed the Hoax. Wait till you hear what I have found next!

    I also have measured dozens of “gravity” events and found several that are clearly wrong. As well the dirt falling faster than the astronauts. Specific frame rates were used, and speed changes are observable.

    Why?, Still today people do not recognize slow motion? I have also removed the slow motion as an example in my restored clips. See my other videos.

    It is over. It is falsified. People just do not know yet. Some will never believe it could be a hoax, no matter what. Physics be damned! It is like the adults version of santa claus. Well sorry kids it is not real. You cannot hide behind science and then rewrite it to hold onto a belief, you cannot have it both ways.

    • You’re right. Sound can’t travel through the near vacuum of the lunar atmosphere. There is no air on the Moon. But there is air inside a space suit, and that’s where the astronaut’s microphones were located. The sound of the rock hammer was carried through the suit itself and into the helmet, where it became a noise that could be picked up on mic. The same thing happened on Apollo 12 for Al Bean, read more on that here: http://blog.moonzoo.org/2011/07/18/sounds-on-the-moon/

    Notice that he is not touching the LRV when he closes the seat lid. Does the sound of the lid pass through the rover, through the lunar surface into the suit through the boots and layers of latex, tubing and insulation to activate the mike?

    I also have other examples where sound is made without contact from the suit. Sorry, it is time to wake up.

If anything, the sounds picked up by the Apollo mics show how much they can transmit vibrations, rather than “prove” that the whole program was faked. This is not some silver bullet that will vanquish the great Moon conspiracy… it’s just another wispy anomaly.

      (I also get suspicious of audio enhancements that turn dull thuds into sharp knocks.)

      In addition other Apollo astronauts (Cernan, for one) have said that sounds were picked up by the suit mics that they didn’t even hear at the time.

  35. There are sounds made without contact with the suit even in this single example. So it is a moot point.

    Just so stories without basis do not cut it.

    The sounds are clearly there, similar techniques are used in audio analysis for criminal convictions.

    I have even extracted some sounds of the astronauts boots in the sand.

    Cernans alledged claim (in the transcripts) makes no sense because the astronauts breath or the suits systems would be far louder. This is NASAs feeble attempt at damage control, astronauts made up guesses, not actual science. So Vox mode or not? Again it has no basis. And does not occur in modern space walks plain and simple. Despite changes in the suit, the fundamentals remain the same and do not allow the suit to act as a drum. Another astronaut is on record stating that the suit, even ones that are actually pressurised are not taut enough to act as a drum. No empirical basis, only stories from the propagandists themselves. Do you not see the logical fallacy there?

    We are talking about the tapping of a rock here, that anyone who has working ears can hear without enhancements. Your suggestion of manipulation on my part seems like desperation to me.

    Did I mention the failed gravity simulations, just another wispy anomaly that is wispy enough to defy physical law? I have found evidence for manipulation in the frames of footage. Various ratios of duplicate frames, dropped frames, edit points and speed changes.

    This is my area of expertise. I have done my own independent researh and analysis, and do not just copy and paste the same old excuses of debunkers regurgitated all over the net, which this article is assembled from.

    You are stretching excuses outside of physical law. Handwaving with terms like wispy anomaly and excuses without basis, even suggesting I have manipulated the audio.

    Like I said, some will never accept the physical evidence that is right infront of their faces.
    Physics be damned. Santa is real! I see this is where you are at, so I will not tread on your childhood fantasies anymore. This is also why I do not allow comments on my vids. Apollo is like a religion to some people. Truly bizarre! What happened to the scientific method?

    Apollo is a perversion of science, a crime against humanity and progress. And it is falsified by fundamental physics that is taught in high school level physics.

    As an empiricist this article and it’s responses are always revealing. like the twitter of Brian Cox and others who claim skeptiks to be idiots says more about belief systems and the power to manipulate peoples minds more than anything else. And the state of the media and science, these science PR guys are cartoon characters. All of them.

    If you believe the tapping of a rock is transmitted through layers and layers of insulation, latex, cooling tubes to echo in the suit, with a tiny amount of energy and not to be absorbed, and it’s frequencies not stiffled in any way, and against every modern spacewalk since…. then dare I say who the real “knob ends” are, or who it is that needs a new brain.

    And again it is a moot point, because there are sounds without contact with the suit, even in this single example.

    It is very sad, such gullibility is deserving of being manipulated. And we only have ourselves to blame. So enjoy it if you like.

      All snarkiness aside, I agree that this is a curious anomaly. But even with your (almost eerily) meticulous forensic analysis of the recordings – in which you yourself admit a certain level of manipulation (isolate…frame shift…enhance!) – it’s no body with which to convict NASA, the Apollo astronauts, and its 400,000-plus then-contracted workers of a “crime against humanity and progress.”

      Especially since the findings are inconsistent. There are noises in a few recordings, but not in most others. Some astronauts say they heard something, others don’t. I don’t have a reason for this, and perhaps nobody will until we have humans on Mars or the Moon again. But if I were on a jury I would certainly not give a guilty verdict based on this evidence. Your exhibits are inconclusive.

      If I had a nickel for every time someone has contacted me with claims of disproving something or another with his own independent research and analysis, I’d have a lot of nickels. To date none of them have taken the scientific world by storm.

NASA press releases would almost imply that samples are being returned from Mars to Earth, but in actuality, NASA has not retrieved any lunar or Martian samples since 1972. FUNDING is obviously only a false EXCUSE, because NASA claims to have sent numerous unmanned craft to our Moon and Mars, yet no samples are actually returned. Physical geology no longer seems to be important to NASA.

The Soviets and U.S certainly had a past need for actually retrieving such samples, but between 1972 and 2017 … we are supposed to accept that “FUNDING” allows dozens of unmanned missions including landings, but not retrieval of samples. I don’t buy it. It is increasingly clear to me that NASA still does not have the practical technology to successfully soft land a craft (either manned or unmanned), on the Moon or Mars, and successfully return that craft to Earth fully intact … as there is ZERO evidence or even any such CLAIM by NASA since 1972. The reason is not simply FUNDING. NASA is experiencing much greater practical technical difficulties than anticipated in the 60s and 70s … and continued DECEPTION is their only option to bridge the gap between past CLAIMS and future realities. All of the Apollo Manned Moon Missions were ONLY simulated … they were not actually realized … and now NASA is beginning to lose the most expensive public relations campaign in human history. It is going to be very embarrassing for the United States to have to admit the truth, and NASA (understandably), is still fighting very hard not to ever have to do that. Imagine trying to get future funding from Congress … after NASA finally admits their 1969-1972 fraud upon the world.

  42. Um…Bullshit!

    Who cares about a waving flag or non-parallel shadows, we have plenty of photographic, mathematical, and technical evidence to prove man never walked on the moon, let alone got anywhere near the moon! The Van Allen radiation belts are deadly, even if a man passes through them only about an hour or two. Secondly, the sun was at a solar maximum during the alleged Apollo 11 mission (and other Apollo missions). Anyone who thinks there were no solar flares hitting the moon at that time must be crazy.

    And what about the thousands of micrometeorites that hit the moon every hour? Not a single one managed to hit the LEM or the Orbiter? The astronauts claimed not to see any stars. Total bullshit, even on the sunny side. Yuri Gagarin called the stars from outside earth’s atmosphere “astonishingly brilliant”, not to mention some of the official NASA photos show stars. The reason there are no stars is because astronomers would have quickly concluded the mission to be a hoax (configuration and distances of star formations would have been incorrect because our inability to convincingly fake them, which is way NASA didn’t try to fake them).

    The pure oxygen atmosphere in the module would have melted the Hasselblad’s camera covering and produced poisonous gases. Why weren’t the astronauts affected? Why have many of the surviving photos been tampered with? The Hasselblad camera lens had crosshairs etched into its surface yet many of the photos show objects in front of those crosshairs, which is physically impossible unless those photos were altered.

    There should have been a substantial crater blasted out under the LM’s 10,000 pound thrust rocket. Sceptics would have you believe that the engines only had the power to blow the dust from underneath the LM as it landed. If this is true, how did Armstrong create that famous boot print if all the dust had been blown away?

    Footprints are the result of weight displacing air or moisture from between particles of dirt, dust, or sand. The astronauts left distinct footprints all over the place.

    Why in most Apollo photos, is there a clear line of definition between the rough foreground and the smooth background? Why are the background mountains the same in photos taken where NASA said the sites were miles apart, even the rocks and small craters are identical?

    Why did one of the stage prop rocks have a capital “C” on it and a ‘C’ on the ground in front of it? Why did the people who saw the live footage in Australia see an empty Coke bottle on the lunar surface, which was later edited out for American audiences? Google it, many people claimed they saw it.

    In Ron Howard’s 1995 science fiction movie, Apollo 13, the astronauts lose electrical power and begin worrying about freezing to death. In reality, of course, the relentless bombardment of the Sun’s rays would rapidly have overheated the vehicle to lethal temperatures with no atmosphere into which to dump the heat build up.

    Instead of being able to jump at least ten feet high in “one sixth” gravity, the highest jump was about nineteen inches.

    An astrophysicist who has worked for NASA writes that it takes two meters of lead shielding to protect against medium solar flares and that heavy ones give out tens of thousands of REM in a few hours. Russian scientists calculated in 1959 that astronauts needed a shield of 4 feet of lead to protect them on the Moons surface. Why didn’t the astronauts on Apollo 14 and 16 die after exposure to this immense amount of radiation? And why are NASA only starting a project now to test the lunar radiation levels and what their effects would be on the human body if they have sent 12 men there already?

    In 1998, the Space Shuttle flew to one of its highest altitudes ever, three hundred and fifty miles, hundreds of miles below merely the beginning of the Van Allen Radiation Belts. Inside of their shielding, superior to that which the Apollo astronauts possessed, the shuttle astronauts reported being able to “see” the radiation with their eyes closed penetrating their shielding as well as the retinas of their closed eyes. For a dental x-ray on Earth which lasts 1/100th of a second we wear a 1/4 inch lead vest. Imagine what it would be like to endure several hours of radiation that you can see with your eyes closed from hundreds of miles away with 1/8 of an inch of aluminum shielding!

    CNN issued the following report, “The radiation belts surrounding Earth may be more dangerous for astronauts than previously believed (like when they supposedly went through them thirty years ago to reach the Moon.) The phenomenon known as the ‘Van Allen Belts’ can spawn (newly discovered) ‘Killer Electrons’ that can dramatically affect the astronauts’ health.”

    How did the astronauts leave the LEM? In the documentary ‘Paper Moon’ The host measures a replica of the LEM at The Space Center in Houston, what he finds is that the ‘official’ measurements released by NASA are bogus and that the astronauts could not have got out of the LEM. Watch the film for yourself. There is literally no way two astronauts could have fit into the LEM with their space suits on. By the way, the door opened inwards, making it even more impossible.

    The water sourced air conditioner backpacks should have produced frequent explosive vapor discharges. They never did.

    With more than a two second signal transmission round trip, how did a camera pan upward to track the departure of the Apollo 16 LEM? Gus Grissom, before he got burned alive in the Apollo I disaster A few minutes before he was burned to death in the Apollo I tragedy, Gus Grissom said, ‘Hey, you guys in the control center, get with it. You expect me to go to the moon and you can’t even maintain telephonic communications over three miles.’ This statement says a lot about what Grissom thought about NASA’s progress in the great space race.

    Why did NASA’s administrator resign just days before the first Apollo mission? You’d think he would have stayed around to receive some of the honors for helping to send men to the moon. Instead he bailed out.

    In 1969 computer chips had not been invented. The maximum computer memory was 256k, and this was housed in a large air conditioned building. In 2002 a top of the range computer requires at least 64 Mb of memory to run a simulated Moon landing, and that does not include the memory required to take off again once landed. The alleged computer on board Apollo 11 had 32k of memory. That’s the equivalent of a simple calculator.

    Why did the blueprints and plans for the Lunar Module and Moon Buggy get destroyed if this was one of History’s greatest accomplishments? Do you really believe NASA lost all of the telemetry data from the moon missions? Do you really believe NASA lost all of the original video of men landing and walking on the moon? The most important achievement in man’s history and NASA accidentally taped over it and lost it all.

    Unbelievable!

    • Wow! What an impassioned and time-intensive comment to write, regarding very many points concerning purportedly “faked” lunar missions — some often brought up, others less commonly posed. Allow me to address as many as I can.

      An oft-mentioned concern of the “no-way, no-how” camp: the Van Allen belts. Yes, these inner tubes of charged particles that surround Earth do contain enough radiation to sicken or even kill a human, but that’s only if they stay in them long enough. The Apollo crews crossed through the belts in only about an hour, subjecting them to radiation levels comparable to safe levels for employees of nuclear power plants…or getting a CT scan. Of course at first this was a legitimate concern for NASA, and they researched it for years. But in the end they decided that 1. the shielding offered by the craft., 2. the short time within the belts, and 3. the all-over inherent risks of a lunar mission anyway, made it worth it. See this article by space historian Amy Teitel on Popular Science (http://www.popsci.com/blog-network/vintage-space/apollo-rocketed-through-van-allen-belts) and this by gamma-ray astronomer Bill Wheaton (deceased): http://www.wwheaton.com/waw/mad/mad19.html.

      As far as solar storms were concerned, well… yes, that would have been bad. the years of 1969-1972 were in a solar maximum (although looking back it was a relatively low one) but a CME in August 1972 missed hitting an Apollo crew by four months in either direction. If astronauts had been caught out on EVA during a direct hit, they could have been in a lot of trouble. One of the risks of space exploration. Luckily, CMEs and flare storms aren’t constant events, even during maximums.

      Stars on the Moon: astronauts could see them when they were in shadowed locations (not getting glare from the sunlit surface), but they couldn’t capture them on film with settings for daytime lunar photography. This is film photography 101. But, on the nightside (say during Earth orbit) stars CAN be captured on camera without overexposure. We see this today with images from the ISS.

      Micrometeorites: the Moon is hit by lots of them every day — 25 million or so — but that’s over the surface area of the entire Moon. The chances of being in a specific spot where one will strike at a given time is very very small. But even so the CSMs, LMs and EMUs had thin layers of shielding to help protect from possible smaller impacts.

      The Apollo craft did not have “pure oxygen”…that lesson was learned with the Apollo 1 fire. After that they switched to an oxygen/nitrogen mixture.

      The crosshairs on the Hasselblad film photos — thin fiducials etched on the reseau plates — can very easily be covered over by exposure bloom, particularly in white areas (which are precisely where the “cover ups” are seen.) See more on this at http://www.clavius.org/photoret.html

      You don’t need moisture to leave a footprint or track — it can also be done in very dry but very fine material, like ash, talcum powder, or flour. Lunar regolith is made of dust and material like that, and also has quite sharp edges to the particles. Perfect for setting a boot-print or two.

      And the LM Eagle’s retro-rockets were both throttled down as the module neared the surface and was operating in a vacuum, which makes their force dissipate quickly. It wasn’t enough force to form a crater under the LM nor blow all the dust away from the entire Tranquility Base site like a landing helicopter might on Earth— no air = no wind. (BTW the famous bootprint was Buzz’s, not Neil’s.)

      The infamous “C” on the foreground rock in an Apollo 16 pan film photo is the result of a hair on the negative. This was identified in a second or third-generation (or even fourth!) scan of the original film… other and better scans of the same exposure do not show this artifact. See http://www.moonlandinghoax.org/34.html.

      So the Apollo computers had less computing “power” than an iPhone… big deal. The key “computers’ for Apollo were the people working in Mission Control and inside the spacecraft themselves… these were some of the best engineers and test pilots America had ever seen. It doesn’t matter if you couldn’t play “Candy Crush Saga” on the CSM’s consoles, they did what they were designed to do. (The Great Pyramids and Coliseum were built with 0K of memory!)

      As far as James Webb’s resignation (which I assume you think will sound slightly suspicious if framed alongside all of these other accusatory queries) he didn’t resign before the first Apollo mission, he resigned before the first CREWED Apollo mission. Webb held the position from 1961 to 1968, and helped the agency recover from the Apollo 1 tragedy to proceed toward its ultimate goal. But with connections to L.B. Johnson, who was not running again, the 62-year-old Webb resigned a few days before the launch of Apollo 7 — about a month before the election of Richard Nixon. Deputy Admin. Thomas Paine took over the position. There wasn’t any scandal — sorry!

      Lost telemetry tapes? Yes, I do believe that something like that can happen… I have worked in an office before and I see what goes on with files, especially as technology advances and jobs change hands. NASA isn’t immune. Read this: https://www.hq.nasa.gov/alsj/a11/Apollo_11_TV_Tapes_Report.pdf

      I don’t know where you got the idea that astronauts should have been jumping ten feet off the Moon, but with a 300-lb EMU suit and PLSS on that a nearly 500-lb suited person could easily jump up 19 inches is pretty darn good I’d say.

      The “air conditioners” on the PLSS units used a small amount of water to slowly sublimate and thus dissipate heat. There wasn’t enough steam buildup at any time to create any “explosive discharges.” (That would have been an egregious engineering error, I’d think.)

      Collier’s film “Paper Moon”…it seems like you really liked that one… this was apparently a thought project that went too far (and was likely misled to begin with, having followed the tracks set down by Ralph Rene.) For the sake of brevity (and since the work has already been done) I’ll just leave this here http://www.clavius.org/bibcollier.html along with this: http://apollo-history-and-hoax.com/apollo9.html.

      So is the Moon landing unbelievable? That’s OK… it still happened! What’s more unbelievable is that people will go through incredible efforts to make it seem like it didn’t. It’s almost like they don’t *want* there to have been any Moon landings. Which is amusing because even those who didn’t want there to be any Moon landings the most — i.e., the Soviet Union — accepted that they did in fact occur.

      Whew! That’s probably the longest blog comment I’ve ever written. Thankfully it’s on my own blog, so I don’t feel too much like a wingnut for writing it. 😉

      I’ll leave this quote by Mr. Neil Armstrong: “People love conspiracy theories. I mean, they are very attractive. But it was never a concern to me, because I know that one day, somebody’s going to go and fly back up there, and pick up that camera that I left.”

      Gotta love that Neil.

      • Not everyone in the Soviet Union fully accepted that the Apollo Manned Moon Missions actually occurred. Both USSR and US space agencies began officially cooperating as early as 1970, a little more than a year after Apollo 11. Discussions and communications between space agency representatives probably began much earlier. From Wikipedia, “In October 1970, Soviet Academy of Sciences president Mstislav Keldysh responded to NASA Administrator Thomas O. Paine’s letter proposing a project about a cooperative space mission, and there was subsequently a meeting to discuss technical details.” A few years later, the Apollo-Soyuz linkup in space was celebrated as successful by both nations, and the U.S. and Russian space agencies have cooperated ever since.

        Although not published in the U.S., isn’t there a published book by a renowned Russian scientist, Dr Alexander Ivanovich Popov (b. 1943) fully renouncing the validity of Apollo Manned Moon Missions?

        I notice that this, “Soviets would have ratted US out” argument is often used by NASA apologists. But the United States (NASA), to my knowledge, has never officially suggested that any part the Soviet Luna programme (1959 – 1976) was not real, including an unmanned mission claiming to bring back soil samples from the Moon.

        Given a full understanding of political relations, space agency cooperation, as well as U.S. and Soviet control of their respective media organizations in that time period … this Russian Rat argument doesn’t hold much water. If two married men see each other in a gay bar, they don’t have to have a conversation in order to keep quiet. Two thieves, two mobsters, two con men, two fishermen with big fish stories, two politicians each with a suitcase of cash … you get the picture.

        Cynical …. skeptical? Absolutely. Perhaps ALL of the Luna and Apollo missions were fully realized. But my point, if the Soviet space agency and NASA were not fully transparent with their respective public, regarding ALL of their space missions (as we now know THEY and WE were NOT), the Russian Rat argument isn’t of much use.

        • Yet with all that ‘media control’ in the US it was still the media that uncovered Watergate and brought down a President who just won a landslide election.

          It was the media’s reporting on Vietnam that drove a civil rights championing President from seeking further office. Which turned the American people against the war.

          There was ever a desire to cool down the Cold war and warm up relations between the US & USSR. To find area’s to work together on, to build bridges and trust upon. The challenge of space was a hoped for new area to effect political change on Earth. It was hardly a jumping into bed together and cooperating on any grand scale. The greatest cooperation has been on the ISS, which the US footed most of the cost of but also by the Russians, ESA, JAXA, Canada. Without the ISS, the Russian’s today would just be sending capsules up and down like in the 60’s.

          Their space program is gonna take a hit when the US stops paying millions for rides up to the ISS in the coming years as the commercial launch program takes off. And with NASA working with ESA on a deep space vehicle, Russia with nothing truly new even being planned is going to probably be stuck using their section of the ISS as a station while China surpasses them in the coming decades. A shame they aren’t doing more.

  43. Every single image of Earth (photograph, 16mm and live TV) contains a unique time and date specific meteorological signature that pins it down to an exact point in time. Those meteorological signatures match exactly what can be found in weather satellite images.

    There are small rocks and craters visible in photographic and video images, as well as evidence of human activity, that can be seen not just in US probes but those from China, India and Japan. Those surface features were not known about prior to the missions,

    Stars were both photographed and commented upon during the missions, and some experiments were specifically designed to capture them on film. Venus was photographed in orbit and from the ground by Apollo 14, and on the ground by Apollo 16. Jupiter was photographed by Apollo 17 several times in lunar orbit not only exactly where it should have been but moving consistently over time.

    Lunar shadows are the correct length for the mission times and change as the missions progress. The lunar terminator photographed over the mission matches the mission timings. And so on and so on and so on…

    Every single tiny detail of the Apollo missions hangs together in a cohesive, consistent whole, whereas not one single detail of the so-called hoax ‘theory’ stands up to the slightest scrutiny. The hoax stance is built at best on ignorance, at worst on lies, and is pretty much entirely supported by “it kinda looks funny”, “I woulda done done it different” and “Boo, NASA”. The best hope for humanity is that these people are not outside mingling with real people.

  45. No offence folks, but if you are going to argue the moon landing was a hoax please do it from a position of science or logic. Even van Allen in later papers admitted he had over stated the danger of the radiation belts. The moon has GRAVITY. just 1/6 that of the earth. This explains the ‘similar’ type motions you would expect in the earth, just somewhat dampened. A number of film makers have recreated the scenario of human activity on the moon (walking, jumping, running) and then played it back in slow motion. All agree it looks ‘similar’ to footage from the moon BUT NOT IDENTICAL.
    The Apollo moon landings were not about strategic acquisition of territory. They were about ego! There was a Cold War and the U.S. had to beat the Rissians at everything. There is no NEED to go back to the moon. It would serve no purpose. And if you think going back to the moon was important in maintaining the “lie” then if they could fake it in 1969 then they could fake it in a heart beat in the 21st century. Can you imagine trying to get funding for new moon landings. I suspect Congress might crack up a bit.
    The funniest claims are those relating to the rock ‘prop’ with the letter C on it and the supposed Coke can seen my some in the original footage.
    Two things about the rock – don’t you think if they were spending so much time, effort and money on a fake Aplollo Program they could have found a few extra dollars for a Continuity Director. Even Hollywood is smart enought to employ them. Secondly, why on earth would you care about where a rock is placed “on the set” and then completely miss the fact that some bozo left a coke can lying around?
    I am yet to see one shred of actual evidence that supports a hoax. Evidence based on science or fact.
    But of course we are all wasting our time because there is no reasoning with someone who is dillusional. By definition, logic won’t work.

            • Why do you use invalid reasoning? You attack the messenger, and attempt to invalidate a legitimate and interesting statement and point of argument … by association … rather than valid reasoning. The man on the video describing the challenges of passing through radiation belts is a NASA engineer. Wouldn’t it be more direct and reasonable to argue that the engineer probably did not intend to suggest that astronauts had never passed through the radiation belts, but that he was simply describing ORION technology, which seeks to more fully resolve the radiation issue in order to protect future astronauts? To expect that astronauts are always perfect and never misspeak is unreasonable. Invalid reasoning used by NASA and NASA apologists is a part of the reason that laypersons and skeptics continue to doubt that the Apollo Manned Moon Missions were more than just simulated. It is important to keep in mind that while NASA has provided virtual mountain ranges of images and evidence, there has been little conclusive scientific proof (in over four decades) that all of the Apollo Manned Moon Missions were fully executed as presented to the public. Some of the scientific evidence is circular in logic, and only serves to prove that UNMANNED craft have been to the Moon. It is understandable that layperson HOAXERS use invalid reasoning, but NASA professionals have little excuse. It is important to always bear in mind, that intelligent reasonable people also have doubts, questions, and are even sometimes highly skeptical, and that while there are millions of HOAXERS and BELIEVERS … there are also millions of intelligent people who would readily admit that they don’t (and probably cannot) KNOW if some or all of the Apollo Manned Moon Missions were ONLY simulated by NASA. If NASA expects and desires laypersons to believe in the integrity of previous MANNED missions which seem increasingly scientifically, technologically, and chronologically … highly unlikely, then it needs to do a better job of presenting it’s arguments … perhaps more clearly distinguishing between actual unaltered images and artist renderings … and using ONLY valid reasoning.

      So, let me get this straight, if anyone doesn’t agree with you they must have been brainwashed? How come the uneducated, uninformed, unintelligent and illogical ‘minority are the ‘enlightened’ ones? And please don’t trot out some bogus figure about the majority of Americans don’t believe man walked on the moon. The figure is around 20%-25% of the whole population, which includes a lot of dumb people. In the world-wide scientific community the figure drops to less than 1%. With the Hari Krishna it is up to 90%. With Cubans it’s 95%. With Russians it’s 35%. It depends which people you survey. I’m going with the ones that are educated, informed and intelligent, and who have no bias due to their religious beliefs or hate of America.

      The Apollo program collected 380 kilograms (838 lb) of Moon rocks during the six manned missions. Analyses by scientists worldwide (note: not just NASA or American) all agree that these rocks came from the Moon – no published accounts in peer-reviewed scientific journals exist that dispute this claim. Obviously they’re ALL brainwashed.

      India’s lunar mission Chandrayaan-1 took photos of the Apollo 15 landing site and tracks of the lunar rovers. Obviously brainwashed.

      China’s second lunar probe, Chang’e 2, which was launched in 2010, can photograph the lunar surface with a resolution of up to 1.3 meters (4.3 ft). It spotted evidence of the Apollo landings. Obviously brainwashed. I can see the Communist Party room in China trying to think of ways to help out the Americans with their moon landing lie. Yeh, Right!

      Finally, the father of the consiracy theory, Bill Kaysing, wasn’t even a scientist! He majored in English! He was a Technical Writer!

They would have stopped in a terrestrial environment, with air quickly slowing them down, but in a vacuum the bits can move until all of their kinetic energy is transferred somewhere else.

  49. 1. I agree that shaking the pole would cause the flag to pop in a certain direction. The writer does not address the question of how the flag tip falls back down and swings in the opposite direction. The writer does not address the moon’s 1/6 earth’s gravity issue.

    It stands to reason that it would hang in the upward position for a longer time before slowly coming down, and possibly swinging back up in the other direction.

    2. The stars, sun and any part of the visibly lighted earth, would have appeared much brighter on the moon. The writer’s explanation basically debunks #3. If the stars, sun and earth are completely blacked out due to exposure for the lighted surface, then the astronauts and equipment shown in shadows would have been nearly blacked out with no highlighted appearance.

    3. If the surface ground in the shadows were blacked out due to exposure for the lighted areas, then the astronauts, equipment and lunar module in the same shadow would have also been blacked out. The images clearly show that while the lunar surface ground is rich black in shadow, the astronaut and lunar module are highlighted.

    The reflective material on the lunar module is clearly reflecting artificial light from another source than the sun. Also, notice the astronaut’s shoes are darker. This is an indication that the artificial light source was putting out a light spread that did not offer even exposure and resulted in no highlighting of the ground.

    They used basic Photography 101 principle of lighting ratios. In order to fill in the shadows, the flash needs to produce enough light to fill in the shadowed area, while at the same time the shutter and aperture are set for best exposure of the lighted area. The image shown with the story is a classic example of using artificial light to fill in the shadow area of the astronaut and lunar module.

    4. False from the first sentence. It does not matter how the surface and objects are shaped and angled, the sunlight would cause all shadows to point in the same direction, without deviation. A lighting source that is closer to the subjects would cause different subjects to cast shadows in different directions.

    5. A trip to the moon has the potential of causing great radiation damage to equipment and humans, just as a trip to Mars. I found a 1980 NASA study report that concluded it would require a 6 foot thick wall around the whole module to protect the astronauts and equipment from damaging radiation exposure. It did not draw a distinction of damage level based on a trip to the moon compared to a distant planet.

    6. I am unable to speak to the level of technology during the 1960s and 1970s. But logical reasoning would dictate that if NASA is trying to overcome basic radiation complications today, then they did not have the technology to overcome such complications during the 1960s and 1970s.

    7. Considering modern technology with photo editing, it is possible to place and paint the image to appear as if something is on the lunar surface. Plus, the image shown in the story looks more like a crater with some use of brightening or exposure tool around it. It would be easy to drop in a shadow. Simply not a convincing image.

    8. The writer said, “We didn’t lose the technology, as some have claimed, we just stopped making it, at least for those specific uses.”

    Actually, I find no critics who alleged that we lost the technology. Instead, it is claimed that the technology for successful human space travel to the moon was not there at all.

    His first sentence explains it quite well, “This, unfortunately, has more to do with the nature of politics and public interest than space technology, although the latter often becomes a casualty of the former.”

    Because the technology did not exist for successful human space travel to the moon, it was really about politics and public interest, and not about space technology, thus we have the need to produce an artificial moon trip and lunar expedition.

    9. The counter-debunker did not address other important issues.

    A. Assuming we agree that there was no water on the lunar surface, and therefore no moister in the dirt, then it stands to reason there would be no foot and EVA track prints seen in the photos. Instead, we see rich impressions similar to that seen on moist dirt. Comparing with most beaches, the sand that is farther back from the water does not leave shoe and foot impressions. But impressions do occur on sand closer to the water.

    B. The film of astronauts skipping and jumping reveal that they are on earth’s gravity. The vertical and horizontal distance is quite similar to conditions on earth’s gravity. Only difference is they are shown in slow motion. Considering the moon’s gravity is 1/6 earth’s gravity, it stands to reason the vertical and horizontal distance for each skip and jump would be approximately 6x that on earth’s gravity. We should see a visibly significant increase in vertical and horizontal distance on the moon’s gravity.

    • #2 The stars are faint points of lights of various light years from the Moon, unless a camera is set to proper settings they will never be captured in camera. A camera set for daylight exposure will never capture the light of stars.

      #3 Your premise is entirely false. The reason objects on the Moon in shadow aren’t black is because they are lit up by the vastly larger area of lunar surface reflecting sunlight. If you look at the astronauts in shadow you will notice that as you go down their body they get darker, their boots are not nearly as lit up as their upper body. This is because the area being reflected by the boots is the shadow area they are closest to while the greater area of the lit up lunar surface reflects into items higher up.

      As a professional commercial photographer your multiple lighting scenario ignores that the astronauts moved about and were not going to remain in proper ratio to any lighting setup and multiple shadows would have occurred. Never mind that we have hours of uninterrupted video footage of the astronauts moving about over great distances. The photo’s can not be only evaluated in isolation from the entirety of the Apollo records.

      #4 Again this is false. Surface angle and shape of object do indeed matter in how shadows are captured in camera in relation to the perspective of the camera to the shadows. An irregular shaped object can give the illusion when recorded into a 2D medium of having a shadow going in a different direction. A rise or fall in surface will also cause a shadow to have an appearance of going in a different direction. All of this is readily observed here on Earth.

      And once again, if there were multiple lights there would be multiple shadows, this would be unavoidable with out having obvious light fall off from the directional lights to minimize their overlap. Look at any sporting event at night and you will see multiple shadows from the players and the shadows even rotate about a player as they move about the field.

      #6 Pretty much any expert in radiations in space is going to tell you a 6ft wall of lead is the least desirable shielding because of the increased likelihood of creating a cascade of radiation from particles hitting the lead. A more desirable shielding tends to be of a type that doesn’t cause the particles to be split up and shot all about and instead merely block them in a less rigid manner. Which is why water and PVC are popular for dealing with the most common forms of radiation. But for solar events the radiation in space is easily blocked by a few mm of aluminum, it is when solar events happen that things get hairy. Our weather and GPS satellites we are all so dependent upon these days are parked about 20,000 miles up, right in the heart of the outer Van Allen Belt. Their electronics do just fine in those belts for years on end.

      #7 Modern day photo editing wasn’t around 40 years ago.

      B. There is no reason to expect them to be leaping and moving about 6x’s that of what they do on Earth. These men did not lose their ability to control their muscles by entering into a lesser G environment.
      Want to see slowed down fake astronauts on the Moon, look at 2001 or Space1999. Neither of which remotely resemble the movements of the Apollo astronauts, which if sped up look more like a silent era Keystone Kops film than anything close to normal movement.

    • Item #4 – It absolutely does matter whether the terrain is flat or not when it comes to casting shadows. Get a big flat table outside on a sunny mrning. Stick an irregular object in the middle of about 6 – 8 inches in height and photograph the shadows. Now chuck on heaps of dirt and mould some of it into craters and the rest into mounds. Now photograph the shadows.
      Item #6 – technology of the 60s and 70s was less prone to radiation because it was a simpler transistor/diode based technology and not based on silicon chips and nano technology. My 1960s car technology couldn’t have been killed with axe because it was basic. My 2015 car, with all it’s technology can be affected by a lightning storm. Does this mean my 1960s car was a hoax?
      Item #9A – you’re assuming lunar dust is like beach sand which wouldn’t leave clear footprints. 2 minutes of research would have told you that lunar dust is like talcum powder. Which, even when bone dry, leaves clear footprints.
      Item #9b – the whole astronauts moving on the moon looks like normal fooitage slowed down. You said it yourself “looks similar” to normal footage slowed down BUT NOT THE SAME. There are countless Youtube videos showing that videoing on earth and slowing it down does NOT look identical to lunar movement. Cinematographers will tell you they are not the same.

    • So much of your reasoning is literally contrary to what’s correct, I don’t even know where to begin. Thankfully others have made the correct points in response already.

      I will say that the water-needed-for-tracks argument can quickly be proven erroneous by either attempting to make prints in dry material like flour, ash, or, for an in-situ demonstration, tracks made on Mars by the various rovers. Lunar regolith is not like terrestrial beach sand and can’t be assumed to behave as such.

    • That’s curious, since previous experiments on lunar samples at the Lunar Receiving Laboratory at JSC showed no unusual qualities or adverse effects on test animals, even when injected into them within a saline solution. Researcher Tom Chambers recounted on Robert Perlman’s CollectSpace forum: “There were no surprises in terms of finding something very different or threatening in the Lunar samples. According to scientific documents, there were basalts, breccias, KREEP [potassium]. And in addition to the organogenic elements (H, C, N, O, S, P) the lunar samples from Apollo 11, 12, 14 and 15 contain CO, N2 and CO2.” (http://www.collectspace.com/ubb/Forum41/HTML/000194.html) What was your uncle’s name, perhaps Mr. Chambers worked with him or knows someone who did? Regardless, experiments on lunar samples have not been canceled — researchers can request samples today from JSC for experiments at http://curator.jsc.nasa.gov/lunar/sampreq/requests.cfm.

      If you’re referring to the “fluffy” samples returned by the Russian Luna 16 mission, it’s thought that those are the result of nanoparticles created by micrometeorite impacts (see http://phys.org/news/2012-06-nanoparticles-moon-glass-weird-lunar.html).

  53. Here is why I think it’s fake:
    1. They simply didn’t have the right technology as we do now. The technology now is 3D and has bold images while the moon landing photos are blurred and not even in colour yet.
    2.the flag. If you look in the photo the flag was standing up right at one point on its own as if there was gravity.
    3.the craters. They look unrealistic. Also when the NASA Landed you would espect a crater to form underneath the module like the ‘foot prints’ but if you look closely there is none. It’s like they just placed it down on the moon.
    4. There would be most likely a lot of dust. And with the quality of the cameras you would see a lot of it.
    5. On the moon there was shadows in all directions and the only light source was the sun. It suggests there must of been other lightings and just looks like a film set. So all the shadows must of run all in the same directions.
    6. On one of the astronauts helmets there was a small blurred image on the helmet and the theory was that is looked like a hanging light source don’t believe me? Search it up there was a proof close up of the helmet.
    7. a footage shows them in slow motion but if you speed it up x2.5 they have been seen them running at earths gravity. Also for the height they just added extra height while they where running with hidden cables.
    8. There are no clouds on the moon?!? So what’s with the lack of stars? You would be able to see billions in space so why would it be different on the moon? They said that ” it was the quality of the camera ” but with a few decent camera angles and with the same quality you would still be able to see much more stars from the earths atmosphere.
    9. One of the most famous picture was the rock with the engraved letter ‘C’ on the left side of the rock suggesting a prop number. Also the NASA said it was either a joke the filmer ‘accidentally put in’ as a joke.
    10. They used crossed-heirs these are crosses when filming but in most of the images they have been clearly shown that the crossed-heirs where behind the objects. Such as a flag if you look at the image you would see a black cross behind the actual image suggesting that it could be photoshopped in the image or simply placed. Also if you take a photo you would see a small black cross over the photo image this suggests that the image was taken. But when the NASA took the photo it shows the crosses behind the objects, not I front.

    • Addressing your points/concerns in order:
      1. No they didn’t, but they had enough to achieve a journey to the Moon and back. The ability to render 3D images with a computer has no bearing on that. The “blurred” images were low-quality television broadcasts; many very clear, sharp medium-format film images were captured while on the Moon.
      2. There is gravity on the Moon. 1/6th that of Earth’s. The flags were attached to posts hammered into the lunar surface.
      3. Craters look quite lunar. And the LM engines were throttled down quite a bit during the last few moments of the descent. All their exhaust did was blow lunar dust away from the touchdown site. (Remember, no air to create additional wind either.)
      4. There was a lot of dust. But see above; no air to suspend it. Dust would have fallen to the surface quickly.
      5. The only light source was the Sun. But sunlight was reflected from the lunar surface, from equipment, from the Earth too. This created complex additional lighting sources.
      6. Your accusation; your burden to present your case. I’m not searching.
      7. The Discovery show Mythbusters has already demonstrated that the Apollo footage is not just slowed-down video (among other things; see http://mythbustersresults.com/nasa-moon-landing). Also, I’d suggest you watch the video in the article above from the filmmaker that explains how high-speed film works.
      8. No clouds on the Moon. But you can’t capture stars on cameras set to expose for bright lunar daytime (technically late morning) photos. It’s not camera quality — Hasselblads are excellent cameras — it’s simple film mechanics. Also there’d have been no scientific value in astrophotos from the Moon, the stars would look the same as they do from Earth.
      9. The “C” shape was a hair on a film scan made many years later. The original image does not contain that artifact. This is a fabricated anomaly.
      10. The cross marks etched on the reseau plates inside the 120mm cameras were very thin and were easily “bled” over by bright areas of the images. This non-issue is understood by film photographers and happens even in photos captured on Earth. (Also there was no such thing as Photoshop prior to 1988. 🙂 )

      Many of these commonly-mentioned points are addressed in the article above with further links to more information.

And yet NASA went cheap and used the same background over and over?

          Oh wait that didn’t happen, that’s just hoaxers grasping at straws dependent upon ignorance and BS they saw presented elsewhere.

    • You will never capture stars in a camera set for daylight conditions.

      Any photographer worth a grain of salt will tell you that to take photos of stars you need your camera mounted on a steady mount, ie tripod, otherwise you have a blurry mess. Rule of thumb is to not take a photo off tripod with a setting below 1/30th to avoid blurring from camera shake. Stars won’t show up at 1/30th.

      Billions of photos of the Moon taken from the Earth, and yet in not a one properly exposed for capturing the Moon’s features is there a single star in any of the photos.
      Are they all fakes as well?

      During the Apollo era, video slow motion recording was limited to about 30 sec. The video footage of Apollo is hours long mostly uninterrupted.

      If there were multiple lights you would have multiple shadows, just like you see during night sporting events from players if you bothered to look. That premise only holds water if one ignores the effects of surface elevations, varied and irregular shape of objects, and relation of 3D environment to the perspective of camera angle.

      Thousands of color photos from the Moon.

      And yet that C on the Moon rock doesn’t appear in earlier versions of that image.
      It’s dust or a hair in that print, an all to common annoyance in dark rooms and today annoyance with dust getting on the digital sensors of dSLR’s. When propping a set, you don’t have your props embedded with a tag, you adhere a label or better still have them organized off set for location on set. A generic rock, would be unworthy of special tagging.

It’s like people who have to know all the minutiae of a popular story, movie, video game, etc…in order to enjoy it, they have to feel superior to all others who may more casually enjoy it (the “posers,” as they say.) In the case of the Apollo missions there’s just SO much information, from spaceflight to engineering to production, that it’s easier to fabricate a false reality to then be an expert at than actually being an expert at the real thing.

    • I’ll address these points one by one:
      1. The Apollo vehicles could have burned up on reentry, yes. That is why the foil-wrapped landers were jettisoned before return and the astronauts descended inside the conical Command Modules with the protective ablation shields oriented downwards.

      2. What Thomas said is true; space radiation is of a different sort than the radiation caused by the decay of nuclear fuel. Space radiation is in the form of high-energy particles from the Sun and outside our solar system, and unmitigated solar UV rays. Suits can shield astronauts from much of that, but even still some particles do pass through—that’s a risk that had to be taken. In Chernobyl the radiation was from the decay of isotopes of plutonium, cesium, and iodine that was released into the air after the plant exploded; humans and animals were poisoned through contact from the air and water.

      3. Conspiracy Theory was a fun movie, from back before Mel Gibson showed everyone what a racist mess he is. It is not a documentary.

      4. Japan’s Kaguya spacecraft was not able to resolve the actual Apollo hardware on the Moon in 2008; it was able to see the bright patch made by the LM on the lunar surface. (http://global.jaxa.jp/press/2008/05/20080520_kaguya_e.html). China’s Chang’e-2 orbiter DID spot the Apollo 11 site and hardware in 2012. (Links now in article.)

      5. Of course Area 51 was heavily guarded; the Cold War was raging and that’s where they stored and tested top-secret military aircraft and weapons. But the U.S. knew Soviet sats were flying over, and often set up mock sites for them to image just to keep the game afoot. Anything spotted by a Russian sat could as likely have been a prop purposely placed as something real.

      By the way, the Apollo astronauts actually trained on Earth at man-made crater fields created for NASA by the USGS, in some instances designed to purposely match the areas on the Moon they would be landing in, based on imaging from earlier Lunar Orbiter missions. You can learn about those here: http://www.universetoday.com/115895/making-the-moon-the-practice-crater-fields-of-flagstaff-arizona/

  76. Under your “debunk” reasoning point #6 you say: “As far as NASA having created all the footage of the landings in a studio, it actually would have been easier at the time to just go to the Moon…”
    ummm, haha. Huh?
    Even if he didn’t claim to make the videos of the aluminium foil “lunar module” or the car that was driven on the moon….. he DID make something in the studio more convincing [at least during those decades (60’s and 70’s)], that blows any footage away that we have of our supposed moon landing.
    …It’s called 2001: A Space Odyssey. Although still silly, the ships they use in that movie are more believable than the garbage they feed us. It was made in 1968. The footage looks EXACTLY the same as the aluminium foil module footage with Buzz Lightyear, Space Ranger.
    All your points proving a lunar landing are weak, at best.

    We are complex animals, when you don’t believe…well… you don’t!

    So i think the aim should be to get them to at least TRY defend the opposite side, but they should REALLY want to try with their guts.

    and this can’t really be forced into their mind, it should be suggested. And at the very least, we shouldn’t get angry or whatever at them and rather sayu “well i’m sorry you believe it’s a fake because i’m more than certain it’s true, and it’s the greatest Man challenge ever accomplised yet.” and let them rewire their brain.

    anyway, this is more a matter of belief than pure intelligence.

  79. You are correct about everything except #5. Your facts are simply incorrect, especially that AN HOUR OR SO ins’t long enough to get lethal doses of radiation and that the thin metal exterior would protect them. Lethal doses of radiation is between 15-35 minutes and unless that moon ship was covered in thick lead, they would have been fried during the one AND A HALF hour minimum, trip If not on the way, then the return trip home. If they were able to survive both ways, they would have had AT LEAST major radiation burns all over their body. They are dark red and extremely painful.. The belts are so dangerous , risky and complex to us that we have yet to figure out a safe way through it. Hence that is the ONLY reason why we haven’t “been back” or anywhere near the moon. The Moon Hoax served many purposes to help strengthen and unite our country depressed and angry over Vietnam and protected us from what we thought was a Russian, space launched nuclear bomb. Apollo needed to happen and was extremely effective at promoting all of those agendas. However, it scientifically, factually could not and did not happen. If it did, then that means we have some major overhauling to do in the areas of Scientific Experimentation and Nuclear Physics. Even Armstrong cryptically said that we have further to go and much to do but only after we remove one of “truth’s protective layers.” Many believe he was referring to the very effective and powerful American propaganda machine. They made it so we had no choice but to believe. In the moment, it felt too horrible to do otherwise.

    • I suggest you do proper research. This is a statement from James Van Allan from around 2004. He changed his mind on the lethality of the belts years before but conspiracy theorists are still quoting his earlier statements. “However, the outbound and inbound trajectories of the Apollo spacecraft cut through the outer portions of the inner belt and because of their high speed spent only about 15 minutes in traversing the region and less than 2 hours in traversing the much less penetrating radiation in the outer radiation belt. The resulting radiation exposure for the round trip was less than 1% of a fatal dosage – a very minor risk among the far greater other risks of such flights. I made such estimates in the early 1960s and so informed NASA engineers who were planning the Apollo flights. These estimates are still reliable.”

          As the the Stanley Kubrick death bed admission – this is what the family said: “The family made it clear the film published on YouTube was a complete hoax, using an actor who was purporting to be the Clockwork Orange film director.

              You latch on to a French Mockumentary that takes reedited interview footage from an actual documentary the film makers made that discussed the ‘men of the White House’. A bunch of the names in the mockumentary are taken from movie character names. And then they intentionally get facts wrong to show how foolish conspiracy believers can be. When was LBJ Gov of Texas, or Nixon Gov of California?

              If you are such an analytical person whose work can mean life or death, you sure don’t apply that to any ‘research’ you did on this.

              Gus Grissom did not hang a lemon outside the capsule on the day he died.
              He never hung a lemon outside any capsule.
              He did hang a lemon on the CM simulator, which wasn’t an expression of what he thought about the vehicle but about the simulator which wasn’t being modified to match the design changes being made in the real CM. He was calling the simulator a lemon.

              And TYPING IN ALL CAPS DOES NOT MAKE YOUR ARGUMENT STRONGER.

Oh – I fogot – “they’re in on it too”. Every journalist, in every media outlet in every country is “in on it”. Yeah – right.

              The video regarding all the stuff that would fit in the re-entry vehicle. The video is just wrong. It shows equipment which was never in the re-entry vehicle. The clue might have been in the video itself; there are numerous slides which have ‘CM’ written on them. I’m taking a crazy guess here and going to say that it means that piece of equipment was in the Command Module (CM?).

              You claim that there have been many contractors and scientists that have blown the whistle. At this point I would ask for the list. But you help me out by giving me an example of Grissom who hung a lemon on the capsule. Your first example is just wrong. He hung it on the simulator.

              Finally you say that no astronauts swore on the bible. A small amount of research (which for a supposedly educated person should be too difficult to do) will show that 3 in fact did.

              Finally you mention your 80 year old who doesn’t want to know about the fraud, I suspect she know’s you’re not playing with a full deck of cards.

    • Different types of cameras and lenses. If you were to go outside and take a “landscape” photo as the full Moon was rising over the horizon, you’d have totally different lunar scales if you used a wide-angle, fixed 50mm, or telephoto at the long end. The Apollo 11 cameras used on EVA had 60mm lenses, so they were actually pretty close to what you would have seen with your eyes. Even 4x larger, the Earth still wouldn’t take up a very large portion of the sky. But go out and take a 60mm full-frame photo of the Moon and, without cropping, it will look very small indeed.

Case in point: the Gemini G4C suit, which was designed and produced by the David Clark Company of Worcester, MA and used by White during his EVA.

              “The Clark suit was adapted to use the helmet designed by BF Goodrich, a removable fiberglass helmet which connected via a locking ring on the suit. The ring had rotating bearings, allowing the astronaut to turn his head from side to side.”

      Like

    • Do some research knucklehead. Firstly they are “belts” not “belt”. There’s an inner belt and an outer belt. The belts are also not uniform nor are they constant. The Apollo missions launch trajectory avoided the inner belt and took them “through” a thinner part of the outer belt. Notice I said “through”. They didn’t hang around in them. Various Apollo crews were exposed to an average of between 0.14 and 1.16 rads. This is well below the recommended safe dose per year for people working in occupations who are exposed to radiation.

      And to the geniuses who ask how a few millimetres of protective material can protect you against radiation and who claim they you need thick lead sheets also show their ineptitude. Case in point: you can protect yourself from “radiation” with a straw hat! That’s exactly what people do to protect themselves from UV radiation. So if your going to make stupid claims go and educate yourself with some independant research. There are lots of different types of radiation. (And no im not saying you can protect yourself from the radiation of the Van Allen Belts with a straw hat)
      And by independant I mean NOT Bart Sibrel. He’s proven himself to be as dishonest as the people he claims to have exposed. Those of you that refer to Sibrel should note 2 things.
      First – he’s got never seen before footage which is “atomically” dated which proves the hoax. Sibrel has never shown 1 second of footage that has not been publicly available for over 3 decades. Not one second.
      Secondly, he selectively edits footage that he shows in a way that supports his view and gets people to buy his videos and books. The classic is where he asks Armstrong. Aldrin and Collins whether they could see the stars. The answers are confusing and contradictory. Hah! Proof that they are lying! No! Proof that Sibrel is an ass-hat. Sibrel has selectively edited the footage. The original question was could they see the stars “through the solar corona when they were on route to the moon?” He leaves that bit out of his video. Convenient. Changes the whole thing. That’s about as manipulative as you can get. And this is the source of truth you’re going to trust.
      Don’t be lazy. Do some independant research. From a variety of sources. Not just selectively from conspiracy theory sites. That’s just lazy and inept.
      I know – they’re all in on the hoax. They’re all paid by NASA. Tell me genius, how big is NASA’s budget? Why does independant science from around the globe support the moon landing reality. What possible motivation could scientists, engineers, etc from Australia, New Zealand, Japan, India, South Africa, Chile, France, The Netherlands etc etc etc have to gain. Are they all on NASA’s payroll? Are you smarter than all of them?

    • First, I myself have never passed through the Van Allen Belts; and second, lie detector (polygraph) tests are notoriously unreliable and quite subjective in their usage. And third: the Van Allen Belts did not give the astronauts a dangerous dose of radiation a the speed and angles that they traveled through them. Really it was no more than a standard medical x-ray.

      “Radiations vary dramatically in strength and intensity, with some being dangerous and some being harmless background radiation. Whether or not a human will experience illness or death is related to the radiation dose received. It is a problem with a very real answer that can be determined quantitatively.” – Robert Braeunig

    • ” if the cameras were left, how did they get the film back. In a 12 in led box ?”

      This is easily addressed as your ignorance (not stupidity) of the camera’s used.

      These cameras are not like the 35mm cameras most of us have used.

      Hasselblad medium format cameras don’t load film into the camera but into detachable film magazines. These magazines have a metal slide one removes to take photos, reinsert the slide and the magazine is light tight and can be removed mid roll to switch to a magazine with another type of film.

      As for the film, it comes with a paper backing at the ends of the roll which keeps it light tight while tightly wound. So when one loads film into a magazine or removes a finished roll, only a frame or two risks possible light contamination during the insert/removal process. Slightly exposed frames can be seen in the Apollo photo records, they are the images with a slight orange hazing covering parts of the frame. The astronauts had several film magazines they could easily load/unload in full light while inside their space craft.

      So while the camera’s themselves were left behind, the film magazines, which were each capable of taking between 70-100 photos depending on the film inside, were brought back.

      FYI, all of the color photos were taken on slide film, not negatives.

      As a professional photographer who has worked with Hasselblad cameras and medium format film I can let you know that these simple to load cameras and the film is not at risk even while standing under the noon day sun.

      Moon plots for sale. That’s a scam with no value other than to separate fools from their money. NASA nor any legitimate organization is connected to such tom foolery.

      Of course there are a few YouTube videos around of ‘NASA insiders’ saying things like “We haven’t sent anyone through the Van Allen belts”. People who use these videos as evidence are either being duped themselves or are just flat out dishonest. When you locate the original interview you find that words have been selectively edited out or the quote is cut short. In the example above, the full quote is something like “We haven’t sent anyone through the Van Allen belts SINCE THE APOLLO MISSIONS”. Makes a mockery of their non-existent research skills.

      The convenor of this site wants to share interesting information and pictures from current space discoveries. I’m sure he didn’t intend it to be a defence of the Apollo program. There are plenty of conspiracy sites for the conspiritards to visit and share their wacky ideas with others of

      • There would have been no reason to get photos of stars. The stars seen from the Moon are exactly the same as seen from Earth…a shift of 239,000 miles makes no difference. It would have been a waste of film and time—the latter of which was precious.

        But besides that, they were shooting with a shutter speed of about 1/250. You simply won’t capture stars at that setting, not during daytime on the Moon.

        A few minutes of research from legitimate sources (negating all conspiracy sites and most of YouTube) will answer most if not all of the “inconsistencies” you may find.

        Like

    • You don’t invent a camera to take pictures of stars, you use proper photo settings to capture stars.

      1- Use a tripod or else you get blurring from camera shake
      2- Use a long exposure and a wide open aperture. Stars photography requires exposures of tens of seconds.
      3- Use a high ISO film. (above 800)

      Apollo camera settings for daylight exposure on the Moon was to shoot at 1/250 at f/11 for full sun and f/5.6 for shadow areas. They were using mostly film around ISO 160, a daylight film.

      Take your camera out at night and see what sort of image of the Moon shows up with similar settings.

      What you will not be able to do is photograph the daytime lunar surface bathed in sunlight with camera settings for stars exposure. The lunar surface will blow out to white and the over exposure will fog the dark sky. Ever notice that in billions of photos of the Moon taken from Earth, never a star can be seen in the photos.

      This is not a camera issue, it is the exposure latitude of film, which is very compressed compared to what the human eye can see.

First of all the mysterious “third party” referred to in the audio transmissions is Goldstone, which is NASA’s facility in the Mojave Desert (which I’ve visited in person) that has the dishes used to receive and transmit data between Apollo, Houston, and other receiving stations around the world (like Honeysuckle Creek in Canberra, which received the first TV camera footage from the landing.) Second, the broadcast footage looked like junk (and it did) because of how these signals were received and converted—something that had never been done before and nearly didn’t succeed at all. (Read more on that here: https://www.wired.com/2007/01/nasa/ and watch the wonderful film The Dish for that story.) And third, the images of the Earth supposedly made by using the CSM window as a matte from LEO are nonsense and only even possibly believable if you only see the terribly blurred version in the video above. Check out the high-resolution scans of the 70mm film photos and it’s clear that it’s a “whole Earth,” all the way out. https://www.flickr.com/photos/projectapolloarchive/albums/72157659051355812/page1 (Not to mention the previous images from Apollo 8 and 10.) Also an “astronaut’s arm” isn’t getting in the way of the Earth—that’s the edge of the hull of the spacecraft outside the window (for example https://www.flickr.com/photos/projectapolloarchive/21675290376/in/album-72157659051355812/)

    • You did zero research like most of your conspiracy friends. And you didn’t even apply any kind of your own critical thinking. I guess I will have to do it for you; again! Sound doesn’t travel in a vacuum because it needs molecules for the sound waves to be transmitted. The hammer is in his hand which has a glove on it. That’s attached to a space suit with air molecules in it and the spacesuit itself is made of molecules. The microphone in is in his helmet. Viola! Molecules to help the air waves traverse. The microphone is not attached to the camera. In the ISS, the video camera filming them working won’t pick up any sound because there is a vacuum between the camera and the tool. Notice the difference; microphone is in 2 completely different situations.
      Don’t be so lazy, and do some research. Or don’t; because it wouldn’t matter anyway as you will only accept whatever fits your theory. It’s called confirmation bias. And writing your points in capitals doesn’t make them strong. It just makes you look like an angry dip-shit

Whether it actually happened or not will not impact my life whatsoever. I just point out when people are wrong or use poor logic to argue a point. Sibrel and his cronies are frauds. If NASA can supposedly fake 6 moon landings why can’t Sibrel and others fake a time stamp. How about YOU prove he didn’t.
      Let’s not forget the classic “proof” video of a NASA scientist saying that they “Haven’t sent an astronaut through the VA belts.” This comes up time and again as ‘proof’. Until you do some research and find the original interview was “We haven’t sent an astronaut through the VA belts since the Apollo program”. Selectively edited. That’s how trustworthy people on ‘your side’ of the debate are.
      And as for your first point about the REM level of the VA belts. Best not base your argument on something you clearly don’t even understand. The VA Belts don’t have a REM level as such, so I have no idea where the 100 comes from. REM (Roentgen equivalent man) is a measure of the level of absorption of the human body of ionising radiation. It is a product of the strength of the radiation and the time a human body is exposed to it. Therefore even low levels of radiation (eg xrays) are a problem if you are exposed for long enough. So what you have said (or parroted from somewhere else) is gibberish. It has been independently verified that the Apollo craft did not go through the Inner Belt (it’s not uniform) and passed quickly through the outer belt. Their total exposure is calculated as 0.16 – 1.14 rads. The recommended safe dose for workers in the nuclear industry is up to 5 rads/year. I would point you to several scientific papers showing this but you wouldn’t read them.
      And again with the capitals.
      I’m sorry but you’ve just been a complete disappointment in this discussion. No original work, thinking or research on your part. I’ll wait until someone more challenging comes along. Cheers 🙂

      1 Stable camera platform, ie tripod.
      2 High ASA film
      3 Long exposure of tens of seconds.

      Were no tripods on Apollo
      Film they uses was generally under an ASA of 200, ie daylight film
      The lower the films ASA the longer an exposure is needed to capture stars.

However, NASA has had four decades of Lunar exploration opportunities to provide better quality video evidence of the Lunar Landings, yet NASA has deliberately neglected to do so. The poor quality images supposedly offering proof look like a child altered them with a charcoal pencil and white out pen. It was believable for a few decades. It will be 50 years soon … still no proof whatsoever that the Apollo Manned Moon Missions were anything but simulated.

The Russians also claimed to have brought back a small amount of lunar soil from the Moon in an unmanned mission. NASA has never denied this. The Soviets were actually cooperating with the U.S. actually having discussions about joint space missions even prior to the Apollo 11 mission. The Moon rocks prove absolutely nothing with regard to Manned Moon Missions. Comparing lunar meteorites to alleged Russian or Apollo lunar material is circular logic, and obviously would only prove an unmanned mission.

        The same goes for laser reflectors. Scientists were bouncing lasers off the surface of the Moon itself prior to any of the Apollo Missions and reflectors could have been left by numerous unmanned missions.

        This doesn’t prove the Apollo Manned Moon Missions were faked, but it illustrates how NASA attempts to use weak and false evidence to try to substantiate their propaganda, much like the tens of thousands of NASA re-touched images and artist illustrations.

        It is reasonable, logical, and intelligent to question NASA’s claims … as their is zero actual proof (after 45 years), that men actually landed/walked on the Moon and returned safely to Earth. Many scientists, governments, and intelligent people worldwide are beginning to seriously question NASA’s claims. Whenever someone suggests that it is stupid or foolish or crazy to be skeptical of NASA and the Apollo Manned Moon Missions, this only indicates that they have no convincing valid argument or logic.

  122. why didn’t the thrusters on the lunar lander leave a dust cloud after it landed on the moon and why are all the pictures of the lander clean and dust free?

    Like

    • A dust cloud would be clear and definitive proof of a hoax because that would mean it was being done in an atmosphere. Absent an atmosphere the dust particles almost immediately settle back on the surface because there is nothing to keep them suspended like air does on Earth. The dust disturbed by the thrust was mostly pushed out sideways along the surface.

      Then there is how exhaust behaves in a vacuum. It is not a tight column of exhaust like one sees behind a rocket lifting off. That is again an effect of atmosphere, in a vacuum exhaust immediately expands outward once clear of the exhaust cone. You can watch launch videos online and see how the exhaust changes as the rocket/shuttles reach higher thinner atmosphere. When they were landing on the moon they weren’t landing on a point of exhaust, they were landing on a cushion.

      And to avoid bounce from engine exhaust as they neared the surface, the engines actually shut off at 6ft above the surface. That’s what those metal rods were for that extended down from the LM’s feet, a sensor reacted when those touched the surface and the engine was shut down.

      So you have thrust in a vacuum pushing dust sideways, a diffuse exhaust and an early shut off. That’s why there is so very little dust inside the pads of the landers feet.

      Like

    • Without air on the Moon, dust doesn’t remain suspended in a cloud. Each dust particle falls back to the ground along a parabolic arc. Also with no air, the thrusters weren’t pushing air around in front of them to create a large dust cloud like you would see on Earth. If anything, it’s the absence of these things in the videos that helps confirm the landings were in a space environment.

      Never was claimed Buzz gave the former Dutch PM that rock, you are supposed to say it was Armstrong.

      But it matters not since neither of them were involved in the gift of a rock by the US Ambassador which no one ever claimed was a moon rock. Other than the family who donated it to a museum that never bother themselves to properly have the donation checked out.

      Perfectly possible to see stars in space at anytime, but then unless you are on a body in space, there is no such thing as daytime or nighttime. For the astronauts on the Moons surface, which was during the lunar day, it would be harder to see stars because their eyes are adjusted for the bright surface conditions they are in. Just as you can’t see stars very easily if you stand in a brightly lit room and look out a window into the night.

      And to head off follow up nonsense about there should be stars in the photos, once again because the cameras were set to daylight exposure settings. Billions of photos taken of the Moon from Earth, and in not a one is there a single star. That’s because the Moon is bright and points of light millions and billions of light years away are very very dim.

  125. It’s easy to tell that the moon landings were a hoax, just look at video of the astronauts when they walk on the moon and as they walk each step kicks up moon dirt, but you will notice that the dirt just falls or splashes down quickly
    and doesn’t float up at all like the astronauts are when they walk. I don’t know about you but I was taught buy top scientists nasa included that gravity on the moon is only one sixth of what it is on earth, also there is another video of an astronaut showing a moon rock dropping out of his back pack falling to the moon ground faster then the astronaut is coming down from taking their hopping steps let nasa explain that!!!!! ALSO the reason you can’t see stars in the moon walking videos is because the cable they were using to fake gravity would of past in front or across the fake lights they would of had to use for stars and that’s why you never see stars in the background. Also notice in the moon videos that the supposed sun is lighting up the moon surface in a very small area that the astronauts are in and then you can see a dark beyond as the edge of darkness or of space yeah right I don’t know about you but when the sun is shining you can see for miles and looks like on moon you can only see a about 200 feet meaning they were in a studio, and thats why you never see a long stretched out paneramic view that would show the landscape of the moon. The tale is in the tapes people.

    • Regardless of the many and varied wrongnesses in these comments, the reason you think you’re only seeing 200 feet in the lunar photos is that there is no air to create the effect of atmospheric perspective we are used to on Earth. Landforms on the horizon are no less sharp than those right in front of you, resulting in a “flattened” sense of depth. Look at this b/w image from Apollo 12 (https://www.flickr.com/photos/projectapolloarchive/21060616524/in/album-72157656712716754/) in it the LM is about 820 feet away—almost three football fields.

    • If you saw stars in the film or video from the Moon, then you’d know it was fake.

      Star light is VERY dim, requires long exposures to capture on camera.

      Literally billions of photos taken of the Moon by people, and in NOT A SINGLE ONE will you see stars around the Moon. Why? Not because billions of fake Moon photos exist but because if you want to take a properly exposed photo of the Moon, you will never capture the weak light of stars.

      The photo ignorant keep claiming there should be stars. Learn about photography before repeating foolish nonsense.

  126. Dudes, just run a gravity equation. Use the physics you learned in school. Its’ an obvious hoax. (https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=VvdlSRJx-yU) Stop holding onto the fantasy that your government is the only one that hasn’t lied throughout history. It took dozens of try’s to get rockets in space. Then the two steps of landing a rocket successfully, and taking off from the moon each took only one try. Come on its nonsense. Any real program would have tested those steps many times before attempting.them with people. Face it we have just recently learned how to successfully land rockets (2016- Musk and Bezos). We haven’t quite gotten to doing a take off immediately after a landing (i.e. without extensive rocket maintenance).

    This site is pseudo science at its finest!

    • Nothing in Apollo was one try. Nothing. Everything was practiced and trained for in every way possible on Earth, in Earth orbit (with Apollo 9) and even in lunar orbit (with Apollo 8 and Apollo 10). For the LM the astronauts trained with the LLRV to learn how to fly and land on the Moon. (https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=yMfNkbEz8ZA). It also had everything to do with it that every one of the astronauts (aside from Jack Schmitt) was an incredibly accomplished pilot in his own right…Armstrong was one of the best there was. The success of Apollo was because of their ability.

      • Yep, Armstrong tried to do a practice landing from just a couple hundred feet a few weeks before the hoax. It blew up, he parachuted seconds before it crashed (https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=edk1X1E9fxg). Couldn’t even reliably do just a few hundred feet, let alone a few hundred thousand miles. Check you data. You don’t seem to understand that testing landing means testing landings and take offs from the Moon with unmanned equipment. None of this happened. Real world testing is much bigger and broader than you imagine.

        • In reply to numnacom: citing a single youtube video as your sole reference speaks volumes about your overall research skills. Two Lunar Landing Research Vehicles (LLRV) were built and both crashed. However, the data and learning from these experimental flights lead to the development of the later Lunar Landing Training Vehicles (LLTVs), of which 3 were built. One LLRV and two LLTVs did crash. In all 3 cases the rocket ejection seat system recovered the pilot safely.
          Neil Armstrong said that his mission would not have been successful without the extensive training he had on the LLTVs.
          It’s not hard to dig a little deeper if you try!!

          • I’ll say again this site is the definition of pseudo science. The depth and breadth is exceedingly slim. The LLRV at best went hundreds of feet (with zero reliability), we are talking about hundreds of thousands of miles to the Moon, as well as a completely different environment, … It’s like saying I built a paper airplane and it traveled a hundred feet so I know that a bigger one will go to the Moon. The millions of steps that are missing are blatantly obvious, if you don’t live in a “Road Runner Physics” world. The only factor that is preventing you from waking up is your unquestioning belief in the government/media cabal. Which is little more than blind faith in religion. Please, run a simple gravity equation for behavior on the Moon ((https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=yMfNkbEz8ZA). I truly wish for you to wake up/mature in your analysis of the world.

  127. I saw it live when I was 2 and 1/2. it was really late night for the kid, like 3 or 4 a.m. but I remember it. In Poland! all world transmitted that event even behind iron courtain.
    no reason to believe it was a fake. later always being fond to astronomy, technology, photography, so no doubts in moon landings. how could I doubt being 19th in voivodship in physics olympics at the end of primary school?
    so reason and education tells NO to stupid conspiracy that no man was on the Moon. period
    now we have New Horizons, brave but poor Cassini (I cry) and thousands of planets discovered not so far away. it’s science not conspiracy. it’s us – humans. and I’m proud of us. and curious of next discoveries.

  129. The original tape off the Apollo 11 moon landing were erased and re-used “by mistake” if we really went up to the moon why did they erased this tape? Very strange…this important evidence can’t be erased by mistake.

    Like

    • Firstly what was erased was an unneeded backup recording of the Apollo 11 mission. Unneeded in that it was a back up in case the live feed did not work, which did work and render this low grade backup unnecessary. Standard tv frame rate is 24-30 fps depending on a countries broadcast system. The Slow Scan Television back up recorded at 10 fps.

      Data tape was something regularly reused and much like video tapes would be rerecorded over by people taping tv shows, it was standard to do this even for NASA. With data tape shortage confronting an ever shrinking NASA, in the 80’s it is believed a need for data tape for existing programs resulted in this Apollo 11 back up data tape with the SSTV footage being erased and reused.

      Nothing was lost because of this. No footage, no data, no records because all of it exists elsewhere. It’s akin to a video getting posted online today, it gets lots of attention and someone deletes the original video. It’s already disseminated online and even though that copy is gone the duplicates all exist and are as valid as the original posting.

    I am an older guy who was 12 years old when we landed on the moon–WE DID LAND!!!
    What I feel younger people SHOULD be asking is how did we accomplish this miracle?
    Research the incredible engineering genius that created ships and suits that could keep people alive in such a hostile environment.
    Research the rockets, cameras, astronauts, technology, physics…all of it.
    Science isn’t God, science is finding God and using our birth given power to overcome obstacles that we WILL to solve!
    It took devotion, genius, cooperation, vision, desire, money and guile to get to the moon.
    We as a nation need to rediscover these incredible qualities that once made us great enough to “take on the moon”.

    We used to say “can do” back in the day…
