In honor of the 50th Anniversary of the NASA Apollo 11 moon mission in 1969, director Todd Douglas Miller worked with 11 hours of previously unseen, super high quality footage along with thousands of hours of audio to create a gorgeously detailed, full-length documentary that chronicles the exciting events of this historic launch that put the first Americans on the moon.
Apollo 11 takes us straight to the heart of NASA’s most celebrated mission—the one that first put men on the moon, and forever made Neil Armstrong and Buzz Aldrin into household names. Immersed in the perspectives of the astronauts, the team in Mission Control, and the millions of spectators on the ground, we vividly experience those momentous days and hours in 1969 when humankind took a giant leap into the future.
The film premiered at the Sundance Film Festival on January 24, 2019. The public release date has not yet been announced.
Did China really land a robotic rover on the dark side of the moon – or have the Chinese ‘taken a leaf out of NASA’s book’ and faked the whole thing in a studio? Get ready for Moon Truth 2.0: China’s Jade Rabbit 2 has barely taken its first steps on the moon, and moon hoax fans have already claimed the whole thing is a fake. The ‘proof’? Er, there’s a ‘chalk-drawn line’ in front of the Rover in a panoramic shot captured by the Chang’e 4 lander, showing the Jade Rabbit 2 rover on the surface.
What on Earth? (UFO Sightings Daily) Tireless UFO hunter Scott C Waring of UFO Sightings Daily says, ‘I guess China may have decided since NASA faked the first Apollo moon landing and got away with it, then China wanted in on it too. ‘Look at the original photo you will see that there are no other lines in the entire giant panoramic photo. OMG, this is so very disappointing. Notice the lack of moon rocks on the entire surface of the moon…which is exactly what the first Apollo moon landing also showed…a sign of being faked on a stage.’ Donald Trump gives athletes a feast of junk food after White House chefs walk out It’s not immediately clear what the line really is, a track in the thick lunar dust? An artefact created by stitching 80 photos together? What it certainly isn’t is ‘proof’ the mission is fake – as it’s inconceivable that the architects of what would be one of the greatest frauds in history would ‘accidentally’ leave proof in one of the first images released to the world.
Proof there’s something up? (China National Space Administration) The pictures were transmitted by a relay satellite to a control centre in Beijing, although it was not clear when they were taken. Theresa May faces huge Brexit vote defeat as Lords vote to oppose her deal Officials with the China National Space Administration said they mark a ‘total success’ for the mission in showing the rover moving away from its lander. The pictures show a rocky surface with the jagged edge of craters in the background, posing a challenge for controllers in plotting the rover’s travels, the official Xinhua News Agency said. Whaaaaaa (China National Space Administration) ‘From the panorama, we can see the probe is surrounded by lots of small craters, which was really thrilling,’ Li was quoted as saying. The space administration also released a 12-minute video of Chang’e 4’s landing, using more than 4,700 images taken by an on-board camera. The probe is shown adjusting its altitude, speed and pitch as it seeks to avoid obstacles on the ground. Police arrest 55 men for child sex abuse in West Yorkshire Researchers hope that low-frequency observations of the cosmos from the far side of the moon, where radio signals from Earth are blocked, will help scientists learn more about the early days of the solar system and birth of the universe’s first stars. The far side has been observed many times from lunar orbits, but never explored on the surface. It is popularly called the ‘dark side’ because it cannot be seen from Earth and is relatively unknown, not because it lacks sunlight. The pioneering landing highlights China’s ambitions to rival the US, Russia and Europe in space through manned flights and the planned construction of a permanent space station. The reason people believe the moon landings were faked China National Space Administration In America, 21 million people believe that the moon landings were faked – despite pictures from Earth-bound telescopes clearly showing flags left by the Apollo missions. Moon hoax conspiracy theories are often the ‘entry level’ conspiracy which guides people to the really weird ‘hard stuff’ like believing the Earth is flat. But where did the idea come from? We can blame one rocket expert, Bill Kaysing, a technical writer who self-published a book called ‘We Never Went to the Moon: America’s Thirty Billion Dollar Swindle.’ Many of the supposed ‘giveaways’ still touted by moon truthers today come from Kaysing’s book, according to author C Stuart Hardwick, writing on Quora. Hardwick says, ‘The first person to give real voice to moon hoax conspira-nonesense was Bill Kaysing, a technical writer who had worked for Rocketdyne until 1963. ‘Why? It’s unclear. He was not obviously insane, but he was obviously unqualified to express the opinions he was expressing. My guess is, technical writing with objective criteria didn’t suit him, and pretending expertise to a bunch of ignorant sycophants fuelled his ego. Kaysing misused his ‘expertise’ as a technical writer to create the impression the missions were faked, Hardwick says – but ignored any facts that got in the way.
In Interstellar, Murph’s teachers explain to Cooper that the moon-landing was fabricated; a successful piece of propaganda that bankrupted the soviets. Is it ever mentioned if this statement was true or not for the universe of Interstellar? According to this movie and all the people in it, was the moon-landing a hoax? Does the movie make mention of it? Do the creators make mention of it out of universe? NASA being functional in 2070 is not necessarily proof that it was functional enough to land on the moon in the 1960s, or that they did it even if they were functional enough. I’m trying to make it obvious that I’m strictly talking about the movie and not real life, since, of course, the movie is fiction.
Well, it is not my intention to wish anything bad to anyone. However, I have the feeling the Buzz could not stand the pressure of the 50th anniversary of Moon landing. He could choose to die. Okay, not a real death, just a fake death, in order to avoid tedious questions next year. By now, millions of persons in America and around the world doubt of the Moon conquest.
Even the brave Michele Collins could disappear from here to July 2019, who knows…
Part of @StephenCurry30’s conversation with retired astronaut Scott Kelly: “What happens is when people believe those things, they believe the other things that are more important, like climate change not being real and vaccines and 9/11 being a government conspiracy theory.” pic.twitter.com/fOhst05e1w— Michelle R.

Despite insurmountable evidence to the contrary, conspiracy theorists have claimed for years that man did not walk on the moon, that the landings were fake. That theory has surfaced again, thanks to a new “picture” posted to YouTube that alleges the last moon landing, one from Apollo 17, was staged.
The video, which shows a picture that was allegedly taken in December 1972, is named “Reflection in a Visor.” The person who posted it, using the user name Streetcap1, claims that there is a reflection of a stagehand on the helmet of one of the astronauts.
At 21 seconds into the video, Streetcap1 points out what this person believes is someone not wearing a spacesuit. “I thought it looked a bit strange, so I took a picture of it using my software,” Streetcap 1 said in the video.

He added that it appears to be “a figure of a human not wearing a spacesuit, circa early 70s… Apollo 17 photograph.”
Streetcap1 goes on to say that he believes the object in the astronaut’s helmet looks like a man with long hair.
“You can see some sort of, it looks like a man, back in the early 70s, long hair, wearing some sort of waistcoat-type thing… and a shadow of that figure presumably.”
Comments appear split on the video, with many saying the object being pointed out is indeed an astronaut wearing a spacesuit. Others, however, seemed to side with Streetcap1, with one commenter writing: “Omg goodness. Congratulations Street cap1. Making world news. Amazing find xx”
Apollo 17 was the final mission of NASA’s Apollo program and was launched at 12:33 a.m. ET on Dec. 7, 1972 with Commander Eugene Cernan, Command Module Pilot Ronald Evans and Lunar Module Pilot Harrison Schmitt on board.
They spent two weeks in space, returning to Earth on Dec. 19, 1972.
Apollo 17 is notable for a number of reasons, including being the last time mankind has ever gone past Earth’s low-orbit. It is the first mission without a test pilot, it holds the record for longest moon landing, longest total moonwalks, largest lunar sample and the longest time spent in lunar orbit.
Conspiracy theories have continued to pop up since man first walked on the moon on July 20, 1969, when Neil Armstrong and Buzz Aldrin became the first men to ever set foot on the lunar surface.
This story has been updated to reflect that Apollo 17 was the last space mission where mankind has left Earth’s low-orbit. It originally said it was the first time. Fox News regrets this error.

You might want to see the lunar module in person and compare the size of the space suit and size of the astronauts helmet + inflated space suit with the large airpack on the back (extending to behind the helmet) with the dimensions of the lunar hatch/door/opening. Has this been explored? How on earth (or the moon!) could a large space suit and all that equipment (backpack in back, camera in front) get through a small hatch opening? Wish I knew the module dimensions –maybe if you visit the module you can figure it out…or maybe there’s the specs online…anyone check that out?
Over a half of all Russians believe that US astronauts have never been on the Moon and that the US authorities and NASA covered up this fact by forging proof of moon landings, a new poll shows.
In the recent survey titled “Science and society: authority and trust” experts of the Russian state-run public opinion research center VTSIOM wrote that 57 percent of Russians currently think that the US claims of successful manned Moon missions are lies and that the documented proof of these missions was forged. Only 24 percent of respondents said that they believed that the manned Moon missions were real.
Researchers also specified that 65 percent of those who think that the US authorities are lying about the moon landings have secondary education.
However, Russians are not only suspicious about the NASA moon missions. 59 percent of the poll participants share the opinion that “scientists conceal the truth from common people.” Even among Russians with higher education the proportion was extremely high – at 45 percent.
When facing the question if the scientists possessed some “objective knowledge” about the reality the Russian public again split into almost equal parts: 42 percent agreed that this was true while 41 percent said that in their opinion the scientists who claimed this weren’t telling the truth, albeit in good faith.
In the same poll, three percent of Russians said that they personally supported the flat Earth theory. 93 percent said that they shared the traditional opinion of Earth being a ball-shaped planet and four percent found it too difficult to answer the question.
As far as space aliens are concerned, 45 percent of the poll participants said that they believed in the existence of extraterrestrial civilizations and 42 percent think that aliens either don’t exist or for some reason prefer not to visit Earth and contact humans. 18 percent of respondents said that in their opinion the authorities were hiding proof of alien visits from the general public.
