The Moon Landings Were a Hoax
Not the Moon?
Whilst watching footage of the Moon landings, Ralph Rene a self taught engineer from New Jersey had a nagging feeling that something did not seem right.
He watched the footage over and over again, until he found what it was that was not right.
Once he had put together all that was bothering him, he came to one conclusion: America has never put a man on the Moon.
He is so convinced that he put his proof in a book titled “NASA Mooned America”, he has published this book himself and it is available by mail order.
The first thing that caught his attention was the fact that the flag was fluttering. How could it be fluttering when there is no wind, on the atmosphere free Moon?
An increasing number of Astro-Physicists are beginning to agree with him.
Another person who agrees with him is award winning British Photographer David Persey, who after examining the TV footage and the still pictures, is convinced that they are all fake.
He claims that the shadows in the photos could only be produced by multiple lighting, whilst on the Moon there is only one point of light, the Sun.
Why would the lunar landings be faked?
The theory is that after the Russians put Yuri Gagarin in space, America was perceived as being behind in the space race. As this was during the Cold War, it was imperative for the US to address this and so the President and NASA orchestrated the so called lunar landings.
So, apart from the flag fluttering, what else would seem to make the landings fake?
When Allen Shepard hit the golf ball, NASA said he sliced it. A slice is caused when an uneven air flow passes over the ball. The Moon has no atmosphere and no air.
Who took the photos, firstly of Neil Armstrong about to take his first step? The angle would mean the camera operator was lying on the ground. Secondly, the photo of Apollo 16’s Lander lifting off from the Moon.
On the Apollo 12 mission, only two people walked on the Moon. The astronaut reflected in the visor, is not holding a camera.
The Lander should have made a small crater on landing. There is none, in fact the astronauts feet seem to make more impact.
Did these landings really happen or is this one of the biggest hoaxes in history.
You can make up your own minds but one thing does seem strange. The TV footage was shaky and sometimes unclear. Yet the still photos, thousands of them, all seem to be perfect, even though they had no light meters.
How did they change the film with those big gloves on?
