HOUSTON – Need 400,000 employees and contractors NASA to put Neil Armstrong and Buzz Aldrin on Month in 1969. But one party spread the idea that it was all a hoax hoax , his name is Bill Kaysing. Also read: Large Asteroid Across Earth March 21, NASA: It’s Safe!
The idea of the Moon landing was a hoax starting out as “hunch, intuition”, before turning into “true belief” —that the US lacked the technical know-how to get to the Moon. Kaysing actually contributed to the US space program, between 1956 and 1963.
He was an employee of Rocketdyne, a company that helped design the Saturn V rocket engine. In 1976, he self-published a pamphlet entitled We Never Went to the Moon: America’s Thirty Billion Dollar Swindle, which sought evidence for his convictions through crude photocopies and ridiculous theories. .
Despite the incredible volume of evidence (including 382 kg of lunar rock collected on six missions; evidence from Russia, Japan and China; and images from the NASA Lunar Reconnaissance Orbiter showing traces made by astronauts in lunar dust), belief in the moon – hoax conspiracies have been developing since 1969.
Among 9/11 whistleblowers, anti-vaxxers, chemtrailers, flat-Earthers, the idea that the Moon landings were faked is no longer a source of outrage. It is just a given fact.
Podcast character, Joe Rogan, is one of those dubious ones. Likewise with YouTuber Shane Dawson. A sociology professor in New Jersey came to light last year for telling his students the landings were fake.
Now the conspiracy has to document how NASA was “so lazy”, that it used the same lunar explorers for Apollo 15, 16 and 17. Or how “they’ve been trapping us for years”; or to bring up the fact that there is “one thing I couldn’t think of …”
“The reality is, the internet has made it possible for people to say whatever they like to more people than ever before,” lamented Roger Launius, former Chief Historian of NASA. “And the fact is, Americans love conspiracy theories. Every time something big happened, someone had a counter explanation. “
It turns out that the British also love conspiracy theories. Last year, the daytime TV show This Morning welcomed a guest who argued that nothing can walk on the Moon because the moon is made of light. Martin Kenny claims, “In the past, you saw the Moon landings and there was no way to check it. Now, in the technology era, many young people are now investigating on their own. ”.
