Moon landing hoax: At last night’s Republican National Convention, “lyin” Ted Cruz proclaimed that, “47 years ago, America put the first man on the moon.” This scientific and technological feat was unquestionibally mankind’s greatest achievement, yet it went completely unrecognized by the White House, the establishment press and NASA. Sure, there were a hand full of internet news sties with headlines such as “NASA Celebrates 47th Moon Landing,” but a quick scan of these articles, usually no longer than 150 words each, revealed the articles were simply recaps of the official story followed by a list of people tweeting their memories. No actual celebrations were mentioned.
Many citizens of Earth believe it was no accident that the anniversary of Neil Armstrong’s famous moon walk in which he proclaimed, “One small step for man, one giant leap for mankind” was completely ignored. It is widely speculated that the United States government faked the moon landings, launching astronauts into space, but never leaving Earth orbit.
“One small lie for man, one giant hoax for mankind.”
Here at theHOOTER.com, we have compiled our top 11 reasons demonstrating that man has unfortunately never walked on the moon.
11. ONLY OCCURRED DURING NIXON PRESIDENCY
According to NASA, the 6 lunar landings (Apollo Missions 11, 12, * 14, 15, 16, and 17) occurred from 1969-1972. Apollo Mission 13 was aborted and no astronauts were lost. Richard Nixon, the only president ever to resign, served as president from January 20, 1969 – August 9, 1974. Walking on the moon was considered the man’s greatest achievement in the history of the world, yet since the Nixon administration, the achievement has never been repeated.
10. ARMS RACE WITH THE SOVIETS
At the time of the Apollo Missions, the United States was in a heated race with the Soviet Union to be the world’s Super Power. Space travel and military power are considered two branches of the same tree. The Soviets were the first to:
1. Launch a Satellite into Space (Sputnik I, Oct. 4, 1957)
2. Launch a mammal into space (Sputnik II, a dog aboard, Nov. 3, 1957)
3. Launch an aircraft outside of Earth’s Orbit ( Luna I, Jan. 2, 1959)
4. Launch the first man into space (Yuri Gagarin, April 12, 1961)
It was imperative to “national security” that America proved itself greater than the USSR if it was to bee perceived as a military power mightier than the Soviets. Being the first nation to put a man on the moon would do just that.
9. NO DUST, BURN MARK, OR CRADER AT LANDING SITE
In order to actually walk on the moon, the astronauts had to leave the Apollo spaceship and transport themselves down to the surface. To accomplish this task, the astronauts boarded the small “lunar module” which flew them to the moon. Astoundingly, not only did the module never once crash-land on the moon, but it never left a skid mark, burn mark, dust ball or crater on the area where it landed. The examples above are from Apollo 14.
8. MATCHING BACKGROUNDS
NASA released many pictures from the Apollo 15 Mission. Strangely, two of the pictures, which according to NASA were taken over 2 miles apart, have identical backgrounds. The foregrounds in the two pictures are completely different. One shows a desolate, rocky no man’s land. The other foreground shows an active area with footprints, tire tracks and even includes the lunar module.
7. STANLEY KUBRIC’S PROJECTION TECHNOLOGY
In 1968, movie director Stanley Kubrick electrified audiences with the release of 2001: A Space Odyssey in which he pioneered the use of a technology known as “front projection.” The technique projected a background onto a massive, reflective screen behind the actors and created the undetectable illusion of being in outer space, or wherever the projections illustrated. Today, blue/green screen technology has replaced the front projection technique. Nonetheless, 2001: A Space Odyssey proved that it was entirely possible to recreate the illusion of walking on the moon in a movie studio at the time of the moon missions. Furthermore, Kubrick would later include references to the Apollo Missions in his film The Shining, which lunar landing skeptics claim may have been Kubrick’s way of revealing his involvement with the staging of the Apollo Missions.
6. ASTRONAUTS GONE WILD!
“Astronauts Gone Wild” is a 2004 documentary detailing director Bart Sibrel’s real-life experience interviewing several astronauts who allegedly walked on the moon. Sibrel slowly reveals damning evidence to the unsuspecting astronauts, most of whom respond with great hostility. Buzz Aldren (Apollo 11) actually punches Sibrel. Ed Mitchell (Apollo 14) literally kicks Sibrel out of his house, and his son, not realizing his father’s microphone is still recording, suggests they should “call the CIA and have [Sibrel] waxed.” Director Bart Sibrel asks each astronaut to place his hand on the Bible and sware that he walked on the moon, most of whom refuse his request. The documentary also reveals that the astronauts have conflicting stories regarding their ability to see stars from the moon as well as their experiences passing through the Van Allen Radiation Belts. An absolute must see!
5. VAN ALLEN RADIATION BELTS
The Van Allen Radiation Belts, first discovered by James Van Allen, are vast layers which extend from an altitude of about 1,000 to 60,000 kilometers above the surface of the Earth. Most of the particles that form the belts are the result of solar wind and other cosmic rays. The belts are located in the inner region of the Earth’s magnetosphere and endanger satellites, which must protect their sensitive components with adequate shielding from the radiation. On June 24, 2005, NASA made this shocking admission:
“NASA’s Vision for Space Exploration calls for a return to the Moon as preparation for even longer journeys to Mars and beyond. But there’s a potential showstopper: radiation. Space beyond low-Earth orbit is awash with intense radiation from the Sun and from deep galactic sources such as supernovas … Finding a good shield is important.”
In other words, not only are the Van Allen Radiation Belts packed with radiation, but the area beyond the belts as well as the moon’s surface is constantly being showered with radiation. Additionally, since space radiation is a “showstopper” for space travel, why wouldn’t NASA simply employ the same shielding techniques used in the 1960s Apollo Missions? Why reinvent the wheel? Hummmm….
4. STRANGE SHADOWS
Since the sun was the only source of light on the moon, it follows that all the shadows created by objects on the moon’s surface would naturally be cast in the exact same direction. Discovering lunar landing photos in which shadows run in incongruent directions undermines the claim that the photos originated on the lunar surface.
3. THE WAVING AMERICAN FLAG
It is not uncommon to notice rippling in the American flags which have been allegedly planted into the surface of the moon. Obviously flags do not ripple in the wind on the moon since there is no air present. The air-conditioning inside a movie studio however would be sufficient to create such a breeze.
2. CHRISTOPHER COLUMBUS AND BASIC LOGIC
When Christopher Columbus discovered the new world, it didn’t take long for hoards of Europeans to begin traveling to North America. While it is true that the moon does not offer the plush, sprawling real estate that North America offered the European settlers, humans still love to travel and explore. People take trips to the Grand Canyon all the time, but no one actually lives in the grand canyon. If man had really stepped foot on the moon 47 years ago, certainly by now we would have the technology to offer tourists trips to the moon. In fact, the moon travel industry would undoubtedly be a trillion-dollar industry by now. The fact that since the Nixon administration no human being has visited the moon suggests that no human being ever visited the moon in the first place.
1. DECEIVING VIDEO FROM INSIDE APPOLO
No one knows exactly how the most damning evidence from the lunar missions was leaked. NASA may have inadvertently released the following video or perhaps an anonymous whistle-blower from inside NASA wanted the following footage to be public. Regardless, the most compelling evidence of the moon landing hoax comes from the original three astronauts themselves. While in the Apollo 11 spaceship, the astronauts affix a translucent, gel image of Earth to one of the round windows inside the ship. Then, they turn off the lights inside, creating complete blackness making it appear the blackness inside the spacecraft is actually outer space. The astronauts film the image of Earth illuminated in blackness, creating the illusion that they are half way to the moon and have survived passing through the Van Allen Radiation Belts when in fact, they are still in Earth orbit. The egregious video completely destroys any rational argument that the Apollo 11 astronauts actually walked on the moon.
