Who Started the Moon Landing Hoax Conspiracy Theory?

Who Started the Moon Landing Hoax Conspiracy Theory?


Since the early 1970s conspiracy theorists
have created ever more elaborate stories about how NASA faked the moon landings, much to
the annoyance of the literal hundreds of thousands of people who worked in some capacity to make
these missions a reality, and even more so to the men who were brave enough to sit in
front of a massive controlled explosion, take a little jaunt through the soul crushing void
of space in an extremely complex ship built by the lowest bidder, then get into another
spacecraft whose ascent engine had never been test fired before they lit the candle, and
all with the goal of exiting said ship with only a special suit between them and oblivion. And don’t even get the astronauts started
on the paltry government salary they earned in doing all that and the hilarious lengths
they had to go to to provide some semblance of a life insurance policy for their families
should the worst happen during the missions. So who first got the idea that the moon landings
were faked? While it’s highly likely there were at least
a few individuals here and there who doubted man could accomplish such a thing a little
over a half century after the end of period in which humans were still hitching up covered
wagons, the first to really get the moon landing hoax story going popularly was a writer named
Bill Kaysing. How did he do it? Kaysing self-published a book in 1976 called
We Never Went to the Moon: America’s Thirty Billion Dollar Swindle. Released a few years after the Apollo 17 mission
in 1972, Kaysing’s book popularly introduced some of the most well known talking points
of moon landing deniers, such as that the astronauts should have been killed when they
passed through the Van Allen radiation belts, noting the lack of stars in photographs, the
missing blast crater below the lunar modules, etc. Beyond these, he also had some more, let’s
say, “unusual” and occasionally offensive assertions which even the most ardent moon
landing denier would probably rather distance themselves from. Not exactly a best-seller, Kaysing’s book
nonetheless laid the ground work for some of what would come after, with the idea further
gaining steam in part thanks to the 1978 film Capricorn 1, which shows NASA faking a Mars
landing and then going to any lengths to keep it a secret. As for the film, director Peter Hyams states
he first got the idea for such a movie when musing over the Apollo 11 mission and thinking,
“There was one event of really enormous importance that had almost no witnesses. And the only verification we have . . . came
from a TV camera.” Not an accurate statement in the slightest
on the latter point, it nonetheless got the wheels turning and he ultimately developed
a script based on this notion. As to how Kaysing before him came to the conclusion
that NASA faked the moon landings, the story, at least as Kaysing tells it, is that in the
late 1950s he managed to view the results of a highly secretive internal study conducted
by NASA on the feasibility of man successfully landing on the moon that concluded, in his
own words: “That the chance of success was something like .0017 percent. In other words, it was hopeless.” Kaysing doesn’t explain how NASA came up with
such a precise figure given all the unknown variables at the time, nor why he put the
qualifier “something like” followed by such an extremely exact number. He also did not name the report itself. And, in fact, as far as we can tell, NASA
never conducted such an all encompassing study on the feasibility of a successful moon landing
in the 1950s. Whether they did or not, we did find in our
research looking for that report that NASA conducted a feasibility study on the proposed
designs for several manned rockets immediately prior to Apollo program to decide which contractor
to use. This, of course, has nothing to do with Kaysing,
but we figured we’d mention it as we like to deal in facts and reading Kaysing’s various
works has us feeling like we need to be cleansed a little by saying things that are actually
true about NASA in this period. In any event, Kaysing would later assert that
he determined from this report that there’s no way NASA could have improved these 0.0017%
odds in the time between the results of this supposed study and the moon landings about
a decade later. Now, if Kaysing was just some random guy shouting
in the wind, it’s unlikely anyone would have listened to him. Every conspiracy theory origin story needs
at least some shred of credibility from the person starting it to get the fire going. For Kaysing’s assertions about the moon
landings, this comes in the form of the fact that for a brief period he worked for Rocketdyne,
a company that made rockets for the Apollo program. Not an engineer or having any similar technical
expertise whatsoever, Kaysing’s background was primarily in writing, earning an English
degree from the University of Redlands, after which he naturally got a job making furniture. As for the writing gig he landed with Rocketdyne,
his job was initially as a technical writer starting in 1956 and he eventually worked
his way up to head of technical publications. He finally quit in 1963, deciding he’d had
enough of working for the man. After quitting, to quote him, “the rat race”,
in 1963 Kaysing traveled the country in a trailer with his family, earning his living
writing books on a variety of topics from motorcycles to farming. This brings us to 1969 when he, like most
everyone else in the world with access to a TV watched the moon landing. While watching, Kaysing recalled the supposed
NASA study he’d seen all those years ago, as well as that engineers he’d worked with
at the time in the late 1950s claimed that while the technology existed to get the astronauts
to the moon, getting them back was not yet possible. He later stated he further thought,
“As late as 1967 three astronauts died in a horrendous fire on the launch pad. But as of ’69, we could suddenly perform manned
flight upon manned flight? With complete success? It’s just against all statistical odds.” Despite often describing himself as “the
fastest pen in the west”, it would take Kaysing several years to write the book that
introduced one of the most enduring conspiracy theories to the world. As for why NASA would bother with the charade,
he claimed NASA worked in tandem with the Defence Intelligence Agency to fake the moon
landings to one up those pesky Russians. While certainly good for the country if they
could get away with it, the benefit to NASA itself was, of course, funding. Said Kaysing, “They – both NASA and Rocketdyne
– wanted the money to keep pouring in.” As to how he knew this, he goes on “I’ve worked
in aerospace long enough to know that’s their goal.” So how did NASA do it? He claimed that the footage of the moon landing
was actually filmed on a soundstage. When later asked where this soundstage was
located, Kaysing confidently stated that it was located in Area 51. As he doesn’t seem to have ever given clear
evidence as to how he knew this, we can only assume because it’s not a proper space related
conspiracy theory if Area 51 isn’t mentioned. Kaysing also claimed that the F-1 engines
used were too unreliable so NASA instead put several B-1 rockets inside each of the F-1
engines. Of course, in truth these wouldn’t have been
powerful enough to get the Saturn V into orbit even if its tanks were mostly empty. (And given the frost and ice clearly visible
covering certain relevant parts of the Saturn V here, it’s apparent the tanks could not
have been mostly empty). There’s also the little problem that the clusters
of B-1s he described couldn’t have fit in the F-1 engine bells and you can see footage
of the F-1 engines working as advertised, with no clusters of engines anywhere in sight. Nevertheless, despite these problems with
his story, he did purport that the Saturn V was launched to space as shown (though at
other times has claimed that in fact as soon as the rocket was out of sight it was simply
ditched in the ocean and never made it to space). Stick with us here people, he changed his
story a lot over the years. Whatever the case, in all initial cases, he
claims the astronauts were not aboard. (And if you’re now wondering how the U.S.
fooled the Soviets and other nations tracking the rockets during these missions, he claims
a way to fake signals was devised, allowing for tracking stations on Earth to think the
craft was headed for the moon and, critically, successfully fooling the Soviets who were
indeed closely tracking the missions to the moon and back.) So what did Neil Armstrong, Buzz Aldrin and
Michael Collins do during the mission if they weren’t zipping around in space? In the first edition of his book, Kaysing
claims that they flew to Las Vegas where they mostly hung out at strip clubs when they weren’t
in their rooms on the 24th floor of the Sands Hotel. We can’t make this stuff up, but apparently
Kaysing can. Kaysing goes on that at one point one of the
trio got into a fistfight with someone in broad daylight over a stripper. Sadly Kaysing doesn’t reveal which of the
men did this, nor how he knew about it, so we’re forced to assume it was Buzz Aldrin
who is the only member of the three we definitely know actually has gotten in a fist fight. In this case, in 2002, a 72 year old Buzz
Aldrin punched Bart Sibrel who is a “we never landed on the moon” conspiracy theorist,
“documentary” maker, and cab driver. Sibrel invited Aldrin to a hotel with Sibrel
telling him he was making a children’s TV show on space. Once Aldrin arrived at the hotel, Sibrel pulled
out a Bible and tried to get Aldrin to put his hand on it and swear that he had walked
on the moon. Needless to say, Aldrin was pretty irritated
at this point. Things got worse when Sibrel called Aldrin
a “liar” and a “coward”, at which point Aldrin punched him. As for his defense, Sibrel states, “When someone
has gotten away with a crime, in my opinion, they deserve to be ambushed. I’m a journalist trying to get at the truth.” Unwilling to sway on what that truth is, however,
Sibrel states, “I do know the moon landings were faked. I’d bet my life on it.” Not all is lost, however, because he states,
“I know personally that Trump knows the moon landings are fake and he’s biding his time
to reveal it at the end of this term, or at the end of his second term if he’s re-elected.” So, rest easy everyone, the truth will come
out soon enough apparently. In any event, going back to Kaysing’s book,
he states that shortly before the astronauts were supposed to begin broadcasting from the
moon, all three men arrived on a soundstage deep within the confines of Area 51 and ate
cheese sandwiches. He also states that along with cheese sandwiches,
NASA provided the men with buxom showgirls while at Area 51. Presumably this was the only way to pry the
astronauts away from the strip clubs. After eating the no doubt delicious sandwiches,
Aldrin and Armstrong put on some space suits and pretended to walk across a fake moon set
while reading out some, to quote Kaysing, “well-rehearsed lines” in a performance
he called “not great” but “good enough”. A description we personally feel is a little
unfair considering it has apparently fooled seemingly every scientist on Earth then to
now, including ones working for the nation directly competing with the US to land on
the moon who would have relished any opportunity to even allege the whole thing was faked in
a credible way, let alone prove it and embarrass the U.S. utterly in front of the whole world. But, unfortunately, as you might imagine,
the Soviets at the time were monitoring the whole thing quite closely with their newfangled
technology and so never got the opportunity to disprove the landings. Amazingly Kaysing also claimed in his book
that the fake moon landing footage was filmed live and that there was only “a seven second
delay” between Armstrong and Aldrin’s performance and the broadcast the world was
watching. Thus, had even a fly buzzed across the set,
NASA would have only seconds to notice and cut the feed, lest such a mistake or inconsistency
be noticed in the footage people would be watching for the rest of human history. As for the splash down and recovery, he claims
the astronauts were eventually put on a military cargo plane (a Lockheed C-5 Galaxy) and simply
dropped from it in the capsule. As for how he knew this, he did provide a
source for once, claiming that an airline pilot he talked to had seen the Apollo 15
module drop from a cargo plane. Who this pilot was, what airline he worked
for, if he offered any evidence to support his claim, such as a flight log showing him
piloting a plane in the area during the time of the splash down of Apollo 15, or even when
he talked to said pilot, however, he fails to mention. As for the moon rocks brought back, these
were apparently meteorites found in Antarctica as well as some that were cleverly made in
a NASA geology lab. As to how NASA was able to keep the lid on
things, despite nearly a half a million people working on the Apollo Program in some capacity,
not just for NASA but countless independent organizations, he claims NASA simply only
let those who needed to know the whole thing was a hoax know. So following this reasoning that means all
these scientists, engineers, etc. working on all the components and various facets of
the mission were genuinely trying to make the moon landing happen, including knowing
the requirements to make it happen and testing everything they made until it met those requirements… Meaning what was built and planned should
have been capable of doing what the mission required… That said, Kaysing admits a handful of people
here and there would have had to know the whole thing was a sham, and thus NASA simply
paid off those who could be paid off, promoted those who preferred that reward, threatened
those who still wouldn’t go along, and murdered those who still resisted, which we’ll get
into shortly. The ridiculousness of many of these claims
and how easily they crumple under the slightest bit of scrutiny is likely why in the 2002
re-release of his book Kaysing changed his story in various ways, including claiming
that the engines on the Saturn V actually did work and that Collins, Aldrin and Armstrong
did go to space after all, instead of going to hang out with strippers in Vegas. He then states that all three men orbited
the planet while pre-recorded, not live, footage was shown on Earth. Despite, to put it mildly, straining credibility
on pretty much everything he said from start to finish and him providing absurdly specific
details, generally without bothering to provide any evidence whatsoever backing up these claims
and changing those specific details frequently over time, Kaysing’s book and subsequent
work nonetheless helped spawn the still thriving moon landing hoax conspiracy theory. As for Kaysing, he didn’t stop there. He continued to sporadically come up with
new allegations against NASA, including that the agency murdered the astronauts and teacher
aboard the Challenger explosion. Why would they do this when the whole Christa
McAuliffe thing was supposed to be a publicity stunt to get the public more interested in
space travel, science, and what NASA was doing? According to Kaysing, “Christa McAuliffe,
the only civilian and only woman aboard, refused to go along with the lie that you couldn’t
see stars in space. So they blew her up, along with six other
people, to keep that lie under wraps…” Speaking of things that Kaysing said that
are ridiculously easy to debunk with even a modicum of effort, we feel obligated to
point out that Christa McAuliffe was not the only woman on board. NASA astronaut Judith Resnik was also killed
in that tragedy. Not stopping there, Kaysing also claimed the
deaths of the Apollo 1 astronauts were intentional as one or more of the astronauts aboard was
about to blow the whistle on the upcoming hoax plan. We feel obligated to point out here that,
as previously mentioned, he also used this fire as evidence of NASA lacking expertise
to get a man to the moon… Meaning according to Kaysing this fire was
somehow both intentional to murder a few astronauts and also accidental owing to NASA’s incompetence. Moving swiftly on, NASA officials also apparently
had others killed, including safety inspector at North American Aviation Thomas Baron who
wrote a report on NASA safety protocol violations after that tragic Apollo 1 fire. It’s at this point, we should probably note
that in the 1990s Kaysing decided to sue Jim Lovell. You see, in 1996 Lovell publicly stated “The
guy is wacky. His position makes me feel angry. We spent a lot of time getting ready to go
to the moon. We spent a lot of money, we took great risks,
and it’s something everybody in this country should be proud of.” Lovell also wrote to Kaysing asking him to
“Tear up your manuscript and pursue a project that has some meaning. Leave a legacy you can be proud of, not some
trash whose readers will doubt your sanity.” Unwilling to stand for his good name being
publicly besmirched, Kaysing naturally sued Lovell for defamation, though the case was
eventually dismissed and nothing ever came of it. Kaysing continued to assert that the moon
landings were a hoax right up until his death in 2005, in between writing books on cookery,
motorcycle safety, farming, taxes, survival, how to subsist on very little money, and travel
guides, as well as making occasional appearances on such shows as Oprah expounding on his conspiracy
theory work. On the side he also promoted micro-housing
as a solution for homeless people and ran a cat sanctuary called “FLOCK”, standing for
“For the Love of Cats and Kittens”. So, yes, Kaysing was a man whose passions
included micro housing, cats, survival, travel, living off almost nothing, and rapidly coming
up with conspiracy theories. If only he’d been born later or the interwebs
invented sooner, this man could have been an internet superstar. Whatever the case, Kaysing’s death understandably
garnered a mixed reaction from the scientific community, with few finding the ability to
muster much sympathy for a man who accused NASA of murdering people. Gone but not forgotten, Kaysing’s ideas have
actually gained in popularity in recent years, particularly among younger generations according
to various polls, such as one done by space consultant Mary Dittmar in 2005 showing that
25% of people 18-25 doubted man had ever walked on the moon. This is all despite the fact that it’s never
been easier to definitively debunk Kaysing’s various assertions. Not just via reading the countless explanations
by scientists definitively addressing point by point every idea ever put forth by moon
landing conspiracy theorists, there’s also the fact that there are literally pictures
taken in the last decade showing clear evidence of some of the equipment sitting on the moon,
including for the Apollo 11, 14, 15, 16, and 17 landing sites. Even in some cases showing the tracks left
by the astronauts and the shadows from the flags planted themselves. Naturally, moon landing deniers simply claim
these photos too were faked, although why China, India, and Japan should cater to NASA
on this one when they independently took pictures of their own verifying the moon landings is
anybody’s guess. We’ll have much, much more on all this in
an upcoming article on How Do We Know Man Really Walked on the Moon?

  1. Thank you Squarespace for making this possible! Check out Squarespace here: http://squarespace.com/brainfood

  2. Bill Kaysing is a communist spy! The moon landing hoax theory was a Soviet plot to cause mass hysteria in the United States!

  3. 50 years before NASA landed on moon still thy are trying to prove it. Why can't thy go now with all the new technologies, they know that thy can't complete the mission, still NASA engineers are trying to pass the van Allen belt and they couldn't succeed

  4. You made some good points but I'm not convinced at this point. I haven't believed the moon landing actually happened for a good number of years. There are too many odds against it actually happening! Even 50 years after the fact, I can't walk around my city with a strong cell phone signal yet we are supposed to believe they had a live phone call to the moon??? TOO many holes and farfetched ideas for me to believe it. Plus, it could have been done on a soundstage or outside in the dessert around Area 51. I will change my mind when I step foot on the moon myself!

  5. Whether we went or not; I’m still a bit concerned why NASA have destroyed the Technology and cannot go back to the moon. 🤷🏻‍♂️

  6. Please explain to me how the apolo lander entered a stable orbit around the moon. They say the approx speed of the Apollo was about .9 k/s as it entered the LEADING edge of the moons orbut. The speed of the moon is about 28k/s. It looks to me like the Apollo would have about a 50-60 minute window to accelerate if it was to benefit at all from the moons gravity, otherwise the Apollo would have to chase down the moon like we do any satalite. On the return trip the orbiter would have to decelerate to fall back to earth (most of the way) then increasingly counter the Earth's tremendous gravitational pull. I cannot find any explaination for this.

  7. You know Casey's right we should be able to go out in the Atlantic Ocean and find the Saturn V Rockets laying at the bottom of the ocean which I know is not right cuz my father worked on the program

  9. Who Started the Moon Landing Hoax Conspiracy Theory?

    NASA of course. They started it by releasing so called pictures from
    the Moon that were obviously fake, and you did not need to be a
    photographic expert to spot this. By looking at the pictures plain
    common sense would tell you they are fake.

  10. but why couldn't Buz just swear and say he went there?…if that's what it would take to prove to the stupid flat earther…..why not do it????…..its so easy…..since he went….no?

  11. You would have to be a nut to think they actually sent men 1000 times farther through outer space than they have ever gone with 60's technology on the first try, even though doing it today is impossible.

  12. The moon landing must be real because we saw it on TV. LOL. I've seen Bigfoot on TV too https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=8niClSc0YuY

  13. Of course the Soviets and the Chinese knew we didn't go, but you people that believe they landed on the moon would never believe them no matter what evidence they provided.

  14. A few things this video never addressed.

    How the Astronauts survived on the surface of the moon with temperature extremes of 500 degrees using batteries for climate control inside the LM.

    Micrometeorites hitting the moon constantly (because of no atmosphere) at 1000s of MPH

    Why the astronauts never knew anything about going through the Van Allen Belts while in a capsule made of aluminum and tin while years later in 1998 a space shuttle mission flying at 350 miles orbit described the radiation as so overwhelming that in penetrated their ship and space suits while still 600 miles from the actual belt so they had to lower themselves back to 200 miles.

    Why Apollo 11 was staging shots of being halfway to the moon looking back at earth using a transparency to make it look like a picture of the earth from 1000's of miles away when in reality they were still in low earth orbit.

    Not one single speck of dust on any of the LM landing pads.

    Why shadows don't run parallel to each other if the only light source is supposed to be the sun.

    I could go on and on!

  15. It is a particularly devious method of persuasion that deliberately presents us with patent absurdities, which we willingly swallow hook, line and sinker, making our submission all the more complete

  16. Why doesn't NASA send a probe to the Apollo 11 landing site and take close up shots of what remains ? The Lunar Reconnaisance Orbiter shots of 10 or so years ago were taken from a height of 25 kms or more. Only the most sceptical or entrenched conspiracist would doubt the authenticity of the close up shots. Bill Kaysing stated if such close up shots were taken, he would shut up and never speak another word about his theory. So then – why not send an unmanned probe, take the shots and lay everything to the rest, once and for all ?

  17. 🎯 Rockets can't propulse through a 10-Torr vacuum. Space
    travel is a hoax predicated on incredulous presumptions.

  18. you are so smug, i would like to see you debunk jarrah white (moonfaker) you have sold your soul. You say there are 'literally pictures taken in the last decade' well that is a lie, there is no telescope that can get in that close, the best they have shown was the lander which is a pathetic smudge that can be anything. Liar, shame on you.

  19. 19:00 4.1 K people didn't bother to listen to this last part.

    Seriously, there are 2 groups of people who debunk the moon landings. Idiots and trolls. Sometimes, there're one and the same.

  20. "Assertations". Wtf, man. How is that more accurate than "assertions"? When I hear the word "commentator" I scream, "Commenter, you pretentious jackass!" then have to go brood about the folly of man.

  21. The United States government isn't competent enough to keep a secret, let alone devise such an elaborate conspiracy.
    Simon nailed it. Every reputable scientist and Nation has never questioned the moon landing.

    The morons who dispute the moon landing are essentially calling over 7 billion people liars and fools. That warrants a severe whoopin' on principle!

  22. Must have been the same guy who made this laughably fake video:

    Apollo 17 Liftoff from Moon – December 14, 1972

    https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=9HQfauGJaTs

  23. Damn I was so sure they went to the Bahamas instead of the moon,thanks for clear this up,honest,nice job….hogwash my good man,hogwash

  24. Yes I was truthfully thinking most of the people who believe the moon landings five of them were faked are not as old as I am,55,and even owned an Apollo 13 bicycle,let casings tell me my bicycle was fake too..
    I think it was a schwin,can't remember,anyway I remember the world and us hanging on waiting for those 3 astronauts to come back to earth from black out u know that time when they are testing the heat shield during re entry,plus as a kid I do have some memory that they did go nowhere a few more times and come back from nowhere again,because the adults were oooh wow again,so that's my proof that it really happened,if it didn't where did they go I said Bahamas for 300 dollars,show mevBahamas enhhn,sorry pass or stay…thanks for clearing that up,nice job….next time they go to the moon,in going to demand time cards,signed or no one gets paid…that will fix that..hah hah

  25. That guy got punched by aldrin because he called him a coward,yellow that was big mistake,when some one who sat a top of how many thousands of gallons of Rocket fuel,on top of how many more gallons of Rocket fuel,on top of how many more gallons of Rocket fuel…these guys were test pilots of the most hi-tech jets ever made besides astronauts,how do u think they got chosen,not by being cowards,the normal person would shit themselves 6 times before they even started the count down…

  26. Half the people who think we didn't go to the moon dont even realize we went multiple fucking times lol or that 12 men walked on the moon and 24 men have orbited the moon. They're just ignorant and choose to live in that ignorance because it somehow fuels their ego to pretend they have some "secret" knowledge others dont have.

  27. THank you for this video. I now know exactly how NASA faked the moon landing. I never knew this. Shocking. Thank you

  28. NASA says it hasn't been back to the moon in the last 50 years, because it lost technical know how. Lost the data so they couldn't repeat the moon landings. Of all the info proving they never landed men on the moon, this has to be the clincher. Lost the data indeed !

  29. Perhaps you should do a story on the man Bel Casing as he actually sounds like an intelligent & highly intellectual man himself.
    But seriously, give me $60 Billion dollars, few high ranking military intelligence & several connections to Hollywood & I promise I will get us all to Neptune people. But I need a $30 billion deposit to start off with though.

  30. It ain’t a conspiracy…it’s obviously true…the burden of proof is on Nasa…let’s see you go back next week…should be piss easy….thought so 🤣…just as big a lie as jesus 🤣🤣🤣

  31. Why would Wernher Von Braun, Nazi er sorry Nasa scientist's grave stone have Psalms 19:1 on it? I wanna be an astronot, when I grow up, do I have to become a freemason like all the other guys?

  32. Casing made a huge error. The reason stars are not shown is due to the eye pupil or camera shutter being stopped down.
    He is absolutely ignorant and he should not have published

  33. this reminds my of something i heard on NPR the other day, i can't recall his name but there was an engineer working at NASA back in the day who essentially came up with the idea of using a three(?) stage rocket to land on the moon, and having the smaller capsule land and reattach to the other part after, instead of trying to land a full sized rocket on it's surface.

  34. who started it? well NASA EMPLOYEES DID, even before the rocket took off. Mr. Know it all baldhead can SMD…oh and…it's not a FAKE MOONLANDING…it's a fake film showing NOTHING of what the astronauts actually SAW…we KNOW the REAL, uncut , uncensored radio transmission…no it's NOT "faked with adobe", there was no adobe in the 60s/70s…GO HOME and lick the paper, baldy…lol

  35. This echo chamber of condescending comments and snarky attacks are sad. It's nothing personal, just think for yourself instead of following some ill-conceived video. We didn't land on the moon.

  36. Honestly, NASA LIED about landing men on the moon. We cannot go more than 400 miles into space because of the Van Allen radiation belts. This is NOT "my opinion" this is a scientific fact. There are at least 10 direct pieces of irrefutable evidence that 100% proves we did NOT land on the moon. Sorry. But that is a fact. ALL NASA missions were low earth orbit missions and the astronauts along with those on the ground on a "need to know" basis only helped orchestrate the shooting of the fake moon landings which were mostly shot at Langley air force base. All the proof in the world has been provided by scientists and former military and NASA engineers and researchers. Sorry but it just did not happen.

  37. fake or real we dont know
    but one thing is for sure that Apollo 11
    given vision and hope to everyone in the world that going to moon or beyond is possible.if that not done then we never thought to going and reach out space and more .it is the future of mankind that we one day leave this home to find new home for us.and it was just a first step
    BRAVO NASA
    AND USA
    LOVE FROM INDIA👌💐

  38. Disappointing presentation with a smug delivery.
    You didn't even touch any of the most convincing evidence.

  39. I hate that people think it was fake. I watched chasing the moon doc series..I never could have been an astronaut..had to have nerves of steel.

  40. its so funny that the host of this video thinks hes more informed than The Head of Technical Writing for the foremost rocket engineering company ahahahah I love the sheep, Such arrogance, such confidence in their perception of themselves.

  41. Its hilarious that he is so happy that an innocent man got punched int he face and calls him a legend. If trump had punched someone he would be asking for him to be impeached ahhahahah

  42. How come he doesnt speak about the fact all of the challenger astronauts that died had also had twins?? Seems like a big part to leave out

  43. its interesting he talks so much about the other things Kaysing was interested in. I wonder if he knows Issac Newton spent more time on biblical math and alchemy than he ever did on gravity. Also newton believed in black magic and voodoo. Does that mean his work on gravity is irrelevant?? Also he says we can see the shadow from the flag and tracks from the rover, yet we dont see any blast crater from the rocket on the bottom of the lander that had to blast the ground in order to stop the momentum of the astronauts and yet no blast crater….but footprints are left. I know theres a reason why, does someone wanna explain it to me please

  44. I was one of the few people to have been in close proximity to the freshly acquired "first batch" of moon rocks, shortly after their arrival. A number of examples were secretly located at DeMent Laboratories in Portland, Oregon for analysis. Dr. Jack DeMent was closely involved with the federal nuclear and space programs of that time period, a preeminent expert in the fields of fluorescence and radiology. I did no harm, but the fact remains that I really had no business being there, none whatsoever. I'm fairly certain the gesture was intended to inspire me to follow in his footsteps, as he envisioned me as something of a prodigy. Unfortunately, I did not elect to pursue a career in either science or mathematics, and accomplished absolutely nothing of any lasting importance.

  45. Tell how the Apollo 11 mission data are lost….they are nowhere to be found….wait a minute , man's first landing on the moon computer data are lost…give me break you cold war fakers…..

  46. I heard that the astronauts more underwear that had the earth painted on them so then by default the world is flat

  47. Every single moon conspiracy theory has been debunked. Heck, Mythbusters alone debunked several. When people tell me the moon landings were a hoax, I no longer look at them the same way. It's just hard for me to grasp that kind of idiocy.

  48. These absurd conspiracy theories are symptomatic of mental illness. I don't even know if they deserve to be called "theories." They're more along the lines of delusions, rumors, & fantasies.

    Here's what I tell people: Conspiracies (some of them, anyway) are real. They happen every day. All it takes to form a criminal conspiracy, for example, is for Biff to say, "Let's knock over the liquor store," and for Slugo to say, "Yeah, let's."

    Most conspiracies are simple & small in scope. They also tend to unravel easily. Case in point: Watergate. As soon as the fuzz turned up the heat, conspirators began to rat out their co-conspirators. It's hard enough to get small groups of people to keep secrets for a short time, let alone getting large groups of people to keep secrets for decades.

  49. Ah Yes, Nasa. The same organization that just whoops recorded over the original footage of the moon landing and whoops can't replicate the rocket engine that took man to the moon despite because they accidentally destroyed the blueprints. A likely story.

  50. If you like animations and space themes , check it out this music video about a little space robot searching for contact in UFO let me know what you think

  51. @11:25 Cheese sandwiches? Really? I've yet to have a cheese sandwich (just two slices of toast with the cheese [which kind?] in the middle) that could keep me from my actual mission.

  52. The conspiracy of the Moon landing hoax may actually go back to 1958 From the Earth to the Moon an adaption of the Jules Verne novel of the same name. At the end one of the newspapers that had lauded the project was then planning to expose the while endeavor as one giant fraud.

  53. @14:20 No. The people who claimed to be involved were given drugs to alter their memories of what actually happened. I can't believe these wild claims of payoffs, threats or murders! It's more cost effective! LOL

  54. you are a dumb fuck if you think they went to space in a trash can rapped in aluminium with a smaller computer power than is is in a old casio watch damn you are a dumb fuck

  55. What is funny about Bill Kaysine is that he was just a glorified journalist (technical writer) and was fired from Rocketdyne in 1963 and was nowhere near Nasa or Rocketdyne in 1969 during Apollo 11, or 12. 13, 14, 15, 16, 17.

  56. There’s actually still people that don’t realize that the moon landing was faked? We lost the technology to go back just give us 50 million a day to line this financial black whole while we work on faking a mars landing video. It’s gonna be footage of the Mojave desert with a red filter and your gonna eat it right up.. I used to feel embarrassed to say I didn’t believe we went, but now I’m not sure how anyone who has seen the inconsistencies be pointed out and still believe you must be in denial.

  57. I have tried using square space in the past, and I didn't seem to have luck with it; it could be me.

  58. Funny how the Russians never doubted us. The people most invested in us failing didnt question our success.

  59. I love this debate, I actually went out of my way to go and find source documents that disprove most every claim they've made… It was fun! If anyone wants to try to disprove it, try me! I won't call you names for it, I just like knowing the arguments and the counter-points.
