What are your thoughts on the Moon Landing? Did it happen, or did it not? Ofcourse I speak of the Apollo 11 mission on the 20th July 1969 'starring' Neil Armstrong. XP
I personally cannot tell, because there are so many arguments for both sides of the story backing each statement up. If it was an act or not.
The thing that gets me most though is the fact that the American flag was waving....now if I am correct their is no Gravity on the moon. Also the fact that some guy filmed Neil Armstrongs (AKA "The first man on the Moon) first steps onto the moon was weird, as the guy holding the camera happened to be stationed on the surface filming it. So wouldn't that mean the first man on the moon was actually the guy with the camera? As you can see below.
At the time over 500 million people were veiwing this event.
At the time the Soviets had Rockets many times as powerful as the US. In fact it was because of the Russian man Yuri Gagarins, that inspired John F Kennedy to start thinking up an American project for them to get there first. In fact Kennedy's own words were;
" Everything we do ought to really be tied in to getting on to the moon ahead of the Russians otherwise we shouldn't be spending that kind of money, because I'm not interested in space. The only justification for the cost is because we hope to beat the USSR to demonstrate that instead of being behind by a couple of years, by God, we passed them."
So it was just a little race against two big nations. Could that have led to this accused hoax?
But also many views on it could be seen as true. Their are many statements also backing up the fact that the Moon Landing did take place in 1969.
But what the hell, I'm no expert in all this so don't go aggro towards me just incase I got a couple of facts wrong.
So, any thought on this?
