The Moon Landing Wasn’t Faked, But Here’s Another Reason Why
[ Science]

There are still people out there who believe that the 1969 Moon landing was a hoax, perpetrated by the U.S. government and that everyone involved has successfully kept that fact from being exposed and proven for over 40 years. If you believe this, feel free to express those feelings to Buzz Aldrin.

Anyway, it’s garbage. But it’s always nice to see some guy explain why it’s garbage in a simple, well-constructed video.

Simply put: The American Government didn’t fake the Moon landing because they couldn’t have faked the moon landing. Technologically speaking.

“Please understand, I’m not saying this defend the honor of the United States. The U.S Government lies all the time about all kinds of things. And if they haven’t lied to you today, maybe they haven’t had coffee,” says our narrator.

But the fact remains. In 1969, we had the technology to send a man to moon but we didn’t have the technology to fake send a man to the moon.

      “What about the high speed cameras for the atomic bomb testing”

      They were film cameras, not video. That’s one of the points raised in the video.

    The US did go to the moon. But not with the technology they said they went with. It was propaganda to win the air superiority race during the cold war.

    “We already have the means to travel among the stars, but these technologies are locked up in black projects and it would take an act of God to ever get them out to benefit humanity [...] anything you can imagine we already know how to do.” ~ Ben Rich, Second director of Lockheed’s Skunk Works.

    Why have one space program when you can have two at twice the cost?

    “Simply put: The American Government didn’t fake the Moon landing because they couldn’t have faked the moon landing. Technologically speaking.”

    You’re telling me that they had the technology to launch a shuttle into space, pilot the lunar module down to the moon, take off from the moon, reenter the earth’s atmosphere at Mach 2 and not burn up.. but didn’t have the tech to fake a moon landing???

    Lol.. I’m not saying they did fake it, but your justification as to why they couldn’t have is completely nonsensical.

      1)Apollo vehicle landed, then why it did not jump again on gravity .How come it got stable on landing without rejumping

    In my opinion, the moon landings were not faked, but the photography was, hence the backlash of people believing it was faked. An example of a conspiracy blown way out of proportion; don’t see many of those around, most conspiracies go right over people’s wool-covered heads.
