U.S. Moon Landing Was a Hoax, Half of Russians Believe

Just under half of Russians think the U.S. moon landing in 1969 was a government hoax, a poll has found. In a survey of 1,600 adults in Russia, researchers also found only 31 percent believe American astronauts landed on the moon in the last century.

The moon landing, where Neil Armstrong and Buzz Aldrin became the first people to set foot on the lunar surface, took place during the space race between the U.S. and Russia. Both nations were vastly expanding their space programs, with Russia having become the first country to send a person—cosmonaut Yuri Gagarin—into space eight years earlier.

Soon after the moon landing, the Soviet Union denied it had been in a space race with the U.S., either claiming they had no lunar program or criticizing NASA’s efforts. Some politicians in America use the denials from Russia to claim U.S. officials had invented the race to justify the millions invested in advancing the lunar program. It would be decades before the Soviets confirmed they had been attempting a moon landing. In 1989, the New York Times published an article titled “Russians Finally Admit They Lost Race to Moon.”

Conspiracies about whether the moon landing was faked emerged in the years that followed the Apollo 11 mission. In 1976, Bill Kaysing self-published a pamphlet called “We Never Went to the Moon: America’s Thirty Billion Dollar Swindle” in which he set out claims against the authenticity of the evidence presented. All his points, such as the flag appearing to wave despite the absence of a breeze, have been debunked by scientists.

But the conspiracy stuck. In 1999 a Gallup poll showed that around five percent of Americans believed the moon landing was a hoax. Twenty years later, a survey by C-SPAN and Ipsos showed this figure had remained stable, with 6 percent of people saying they believe the event was staged. The poll showed belief was higher among younger people, compared with over 50s.

In Russia, support for the conspiracy was far higher. In 2018, Dmitry Rogozin, head of Russia’s space agency Roscosmos, was asked whether there are plans to go to the moon. In response, he joked they would go to check if the moon landings were real: “We have set this objective to fly and verify whether they’ve been there or not.”

The latest poll, by the Russia Public Opinion Research Center (VCIOM), shows belief in the moon landing hoax theory is now falling. In 2018, 57 percent believed the Apollo 11 landing was faked. People aged 45 and over were most likely to believe it was a hoax.

The VCIOM poll, which looked at belief in conspiracy theories, covered topics including the safety of vaccines, whether the Earth was flat and whether aliens have visited Earth.

On the latter subject, 13 percent said representatives of extraterrestrial civilizations visit our planet but that this is hidden from the public by authorities. Twenty three percent say aliens visit Earth but hide from us. Forty eight percent said aliens either do not exist or do not visit Earth.

MIT Science Reporter — “Landing on the Moon”

This 1966 MIT Science Reporter television program details the development and construction of the Lunar Excursion Module (LEM), the only vehicle of the three Apollo spacecraft modules that actually lands on the moon. Project engineer Thomas Kelly gives a tour of the LEM at Grumman Aircraft in Long Island, NY, and demonstrates the LEM Automatic Checkout System, while test pilot Robert Smyth demonstrates the lunar landing simulator via an electronic computer-controlled model of the Moon. The program is presented by MIT in association with WGBH-TV Boston, and hosted by MIT reporter John Fitch; it was produced for NASA. MIT Museum Collections.

Top Undeniable Facts That Prove Mark Dice is River Phoenix

River Phoenix mystery

River Phoenix €“ older brother of Joaquin Phoenix €“ died in October 1993 at the age of twenty-three. Phoenix is said to have suffered drug-induced heart failure outside the Hollywood nightclub The Viper Room. At the time of his death, Phoenix was considered something of a teen idol, having appeared in Stand By Me, Running On Empty and My Own Private Idaho. Of course, where a celebrity dies, conspiracy theories shall follow. One theory posits that Pheonix didn’t overdose, but was actually murdered. The proof? Apparently three days after his autopsy, the results were announced as inconclusive. No needle marks were found on Phoenix’s body. His death also coincided with an investigation into his family, who were apparently members of a local cult. Supposedly Phoenix angered the cult by openly discussing his sexuality, and so they considered him an expendable liability. A separate theory claims that Phoenix wasn’t murdered, but actually faked his death. Apparently Phoenix was enticed by the world of espionage, and decided the only way to become a spy was if the world thought he was dead. After all, Phoenix is said to have hated Hollywood (owing to his humanitarian stance). Several clues lead to believe that River Phoenix has since resurfaced as political activist, under the name of Mark Dice, and he now writes books about The Illuminati and has 1.5 million subscribers on YouTube.

Watch Microsoft’s failed HoloLens 2 Apollo moon landing demo

Microsoft opened its Build developer conference in Seattle this morning with an awkward start. The software giant was supposed to show a recreation of the Apollo moon landing with its HoloLens 2 headsets. Instead, the demo failed, a nightmare scenario for anyone running a live show. “Well, it seems doing a live demo is actually harder than landing on the moon,” said A Man on the Moon author Andrew Chaikin. “Thank you for your time,” said Chaikin, before exiting the stage and leaving the audience confused at a failed demo.

A minute or so passed, and then Microsoft CEO Satya Nadella appeared on stage, with no acknowledgment of the failed demo or what the company was trying to achieve. If the demo had actually worked, the result was certainly impressive. Variety has a story on how Microsoft had partnered with Epic Games to recreate the moon landing on stage.

The video (above) shows a rehearsal of the HoloLens 2 in action, with the holograms streamed directly to the headsets from remote PCs. It’s all powered by a pixel streaming feature that’s part of Epic’s Unreal engine. It streams high-quality images to HoloLens headsets that are remotely rendered on powerful PCs with desktop GPUs. The HoloLens 2 is limited by its on-board mobile GPU, so the amount of rendering that’s possible is basic. So this pixel streaming is important for more complex imagery like Microsoft tried to show today.

It’s clear pixel streaming and AR in general is still complex, even though Microsoft is relatively ahead in its ambitions to make it widely used. That complexity hit a hurdle today, but you can guarantee Microsoft will make sure that any future HoloLens demonstrations go a lot more smoothly.

Mister X passenger SpaceX

The Great Jet Fuel Hoax: free energy is real

it’s a recent discovery that passenger airplanes do not carry much fuel, technological achievement being hidden from public eyes. You won’t believe this. I’ve never really thought about this before but how could aluminum airplane wing hold 250 tons in an Airbus A380, for example? There is no way those wings could hold that heavy wright. An Abrams tank weighs between 50 to 60 tons depending on armor package…. do you honestly think each wing could hold two Abrams tanks? Even one of these tanks would sheer that wing clean off! Some thin aluminum structures and pop rivets  is not going to hold in a tank.
There is only one conclusion.
You may have noticed exhaust coming from the rear of the plane when you looked out the window in the gate area. It is from the auxiliary power unit (APU), fueled with kerosene, which is like a mini jet engine, usually located in the back of the plane, containing a compressor needed to start jet engines. Once started, main engines run without propellant.
Therefore, free energy must be already existing. That’s right these planes have been able to fly on free energy for a long time, and they’ve kept that secret from us.

Mark Sargent / Patricia Steere is a production

Controlled opposition

Well known in the flat earth movement are these two people. Very legit, aren’t they?
In the reality, they are a production of a lesser known firm. Most probably, they are co-workers broadcasting from different rooms of the same house/building.
The screenplay is similar to another couple involved with the flat earth: Lori Frary and Lawrence Wright.
The format is pretty identical: the female hosting and the male guesting. Sometimes other people from FE community are invited to join their hangouts.

Irrefutable forensic evidence: Bill Hicks is Alex Jones

Alex Jones is BillHicks

Alex Jones and Bill Hicks appear to be the same dude. Same teeth, same hands. They share the same producer and “close friend” (Kevin Booth), although Jones and Hicks never met in their life.
Oddly enough, both have a 4-letters name and a 5-letters surname. Do you believe it is all a coincidence?
The question is: how many other celebrities faked their death later popping up in disguise?

How Apollo 11’s Crew Reacted to Lunar Conspiracy Theories

On July 20, 1969, Apollo 11 landed on the moon, making history as the first humans set foot on the moon. Here lunar module pilot Buzz Aldrin is photographed during extravehicular activity by mission commander Neil Armstrong. NASA

“It would have been harder to fake it than to do it,” astronaut Neil Armstrong once said. On July 20, 1969, Armstrong and Edwin “Buzz” Aldrin Jr. — two of NASA’s Apollo 11 astronauts — became the first human beings to ever walk on the moon. Orbiting above them at the time was the third member of their crew, aviator Michael Collins, who was busy piloting their command module.

Together, these three entered the history books. The lunar landing was a defining moment, a technical achievement made possible by centuries of scientific progress and the hard work of more than 400,000 people.

But according to a 2013 poll, 7 million Americans think the entire thing never happened. And a more recent 2016 British poll found that more than half (52 percent) of Brits think that the Apollo 11 moon landing was faked (and an astonishing 73 percent of Brits aged 25-34 believe the entire thing was a hoax).

Stool Warmers

On Dec. 18, 1969, four months and 25 days after Armstrong, Aldrin and Collins returned to Earth, John Noble Wilford of The New York Times ran a story about “a few stool warmers in Chicago bars” who’d gone on record to claim that all the Apollo 11 moonwalk footage was fake and must have been secretly filmed somewhere out in the Nevada desert. The popularity of this misguided belief mushroomed during the Watergate scandal, an actual government conspiracy that seems to have left people more susceptible to believing other big government coverups were plausible.

In 1974, writer Bill Kaysing self-published a pamphlet called We Never Went to the Moon. Kaysing’s writings alleged that any sort of lunar landing would’ve been impossible to carry out in 1969. NASA, he concluded, staged the moonwalk in a makeshift studio and then swore the astronauts to secrecy. (Later, he added that the Challenger explosion wasn’t an accident, either. Kaysing accused NASA of sabotaging the spacecraft before the crew of seven got the chance to expose the Apollo 11 coverup.)

His pamphlet gave the so-called “lunar truther” movement its first manifesto. Deniers like Kaysing saw their cause enjoy a modern renaissance in 2001, when the Fox Network aired a documentary called “Conspiracy Theory: Did We Land on The Moon?” A 47-minute special, the program featured interviews with Kaysing and other Apollo 11 skeptics. One of them was Bart Sibrel, a filmmaker who’s released two documentaries of his own on this subject. The Fox program enjoyed great ratings, as did a rebroadcast of the show that aired again a month later. However, scientists overwhelmingly denounced the one-sided special.

The turn of the millennium also saw an explosion of internet conspiracy sites, which furthered the spread of “lunar trutherism.” All that negative attention was bound to generate some uncomfortable moments for the Apollo 11 crew.

Neil Armstrong and NASA

In 2000, Neil Armstrong was celebrating his 70th birthday. One of the cards he received came from a schoolteacher, who wrote “Dear Mr. Armstrong … I would like to point out that you, and the other astronauts, are making yourselfs [sic] a worldwide laughing stock, thanks to the internet.” From there, the author encouraged Armstrong to visit a favorite conspiracy website. Armstrong forwarded the card to NASA, asking if the agency had ever publicly refuted these allegations. “I occasionally am asked questions in public forums and feel I don’t do as good a job as I might with more complete information,” the astronaut said.

In fact, NASA had rebuffed the claims way back in 1977. That June, a press release from the organization dismantled Kaysing’s major arguments. After the 2001 Fox special, the space agency reissued the document. Still, the doubters weren’t satisfied.

Buzz Aldrin Fights Back

While making one of his movies, Bart Sibrel and a cameraman ambushed Armstrong at a 2001 EDO Corporation (now ITT) aerospace event in New York City. James Smith, then the president of EDO, recalls that Sibrel held up a Bible and demanded that Armstrong place a hand on it and swear that he’d really gone to the moon. The conspiracy theorist was swiftly ejected.

This wasn’t the only time Sibrel filmed himself accosting an Apollo veteran. He issued the same spontaneous Bible challenge to many other space travelers, including Apollo 14’s Edgar Mitchell. And as Michael Collins told Air and Space Magazine in 2016, the conspiracy peddler once tried to corner him in a supermarket. For the record, Collins says that he finds lunar hoax theories laughable.

Buzz Aldrin, on the other hand, sure wasn’t amused when Sibrel and a cameraman ran up to him outside a Beverly Hills hotel in 2002. Sibrel had lured Aldrin under the false pretenses of an interview. Once Aldrin arrived (with his stepdaughter in tow), Sibrel started poking him with a Bible and unleashed a torrent of insults. Finally, the 72-year-old had enough. With a swift left hook, Aldrin punched Sibrel in the jaw. Sibrel, who quickly fled the scene, tried to sue Aldrin for assault, but the charges were dropped. To his credit, the filmmaker has since apologized for his behavior.

In 2012, Armstrong gave what was to be his last interview before his death at age 82. During a taped exchange with Australian CEO Alex Malley, the first man on the moon talked about everything from his Ohio childhood to NASA’s future. Perhaps inevitably, Armstrong was asked — point blank — if the moon landing had been a hoax. “People love conspiracy theories,” he replied. “I mean, they are very attractive. But it was never a concern to me because I know one day, somebody is going to fly back up there and pick up that camera I left.”

Now That’s Interesting
Apollo 11 wasn’t the first NASA flight to attract conspiracy theorists. In 1968, the Apollo 8 mission sent three men into lunar orbit, an unprecedented feat. One member of the crew was astronaut William “Bill” Anders, who remembers hearing reports that some Americans were dismissing the mission as a hoax before the astronauts had even taken off.
