Did we REALLY Land On The Moon
I was watching a show last night on Apollo 13 - not the movie, but a documentary with interviews and NASA footage. It was an excellent program.

It reminded me of my paw-paw who, until his dying day believed the Moon landing was fake - however he challenged anyone who said Mid-South Wrestling wasn't real. LOL

Was it a conspiracy? Was it fake? How many loonies we got up in here?

I'm going to say Yes. We did land on the Moon.

I've always thought the answer was simple. How would the 100's upon 100's of people keep that a secret that long?

They now have photos of astronaut footprints on the moon viewed from an NASA telescope orbiting the moon.


Of course, this evidence will never be enough for the hardcore conspiracy theorists.

So let's look at an unlikely prover that the Apollo 11 missions launched and headed to the Moon: mother Russia.

Russia successfully landed 20 unmanned missions on the moon over time. In an attempt to beat the U.S. with news from the moon, and also (probably) to shadow the Apollo 11 orbiter and manned capsule on its way to the moon, the Russians launched an rocket with unmanned orbiter to the moon the 24 hours before Apollo 11. The Russians attempted to land their unmanned orbiter on the Moon while the US Astronauts were still actually on the moon during Apollo 11.

The Russian orbiter crash landed (FAIL) and was later discovered on the moon's surface. The Russian orbiter left Earth so close to the time Apollo 11 launched that they actually released their flight plan to NASA so the 2 rockets would not collide on their journey. Link

To me, this says that the Military enemy of the U.S. had strong intelligence about the Apollo 11 mission and NASA. Russia believed Apollo 11 was actually headed to the Moon, and had they found it false, they would have gladly revealed it. Along the journey, had the Russia space craft not gather telemetry evidence of the existence of Apollo 11, the Russians would have BLOWN THE COVER off that B.S. before their capsule ever arrived at the Moon.

If they allowed the U.S. to fake it, that would mean the Russians were in on the hoax. The U.S. landing on the moon did zero to help the Russians whatsoever, if anything it weakened them in the Space Race and saw it as a military threat from the U.S. They would have done anything in their power to foil the mission or call it out as a fake.

Let's face it, back then, the U.S. and Russia did not collaborate on anything and were on the brink of nuclear war until around the mid '80's.

So yeah, if our sworn enemy was up there and witnessed our manned capsule headed to the moon, and didn't call it B.S., it's certain in my mind, along with tons of other evidence, that we went to the moon, landed on it, walked on it, put a flag on it, and flew off.

Finally, remember Apollo 11 is only the first manned mission and landing the U.S. had to the moon. In total, from 1969 to 1972, 12 astronauts landed and walked on the moon.

Was there any doubt?

Classic conspiracy, definitely top ten as far as great conspiracy theories of the last 100 years.

I saw the movie with OJ in it that proves we didn't land on the moon. Capricorn One?

Yep. I was 8 years old when that came out. They used to play it over and over on HBO, or, "HB" as my great grandmother called it. Dammit I'm old. :mrgreen:
