Well, did we? It turns out this much hailed accomplishment, based on some common sense evidence, may be at least partly untrue.
Things always seemed off with information surrounding the moon landing but a YouTube video by Owen Benjamin has made it necessary to discuss the not-so-crazy idea that the moon landing never happened—at least not in the way it was portrayed to us.
Here is the video if you’d like to view it.
Here are the reasons why Owen Benjamin states—and I agree with him—that we didn’t go to the moon.
- A NASA astronaut is on video claiming that the technology that helped us get to the moon was destroyed, and the US no longer has the necessary capability to go to the moon. This seems like a ridiculous claim. Are we to believe that over the last 50 years technology has not improved enough to replace what we had in the late 60s? This is at best questionable.
- There are several NASA/JPL videos talking about the Van Allen Belt, and how current technology does not allow passage through the belt without significant harm to astronauts. Didn’t Apollo astronauts go through the belt with spacecraft that had virtually zero protection against the radiation from the Van Allen belt?
- The landing was broadcast live from the moon. However, at the time, the technology did not exist (and it doesn’t today) to do a live broadcast from the moon. So at best the live broadcast portion of what the public saw was a lie. Was it perhaps a recording?
- NASA destroyed all telemetry data because they had to reuse the tapes for other projects. The reason for this was due to budgetary constraints which forced this. Why would anyone destroying records of the single most astonishing accomplishment of human kind?
- Neil Armstrong gifted moon rocks to Holland which turned out to be just plain old terrestrial rocks. Need I say more?
There is more but the above is enough to cast serious doubt (or at least get one to question) the moon landing.
