If We Could Send a Man to the Moon, Why Couldn't We Fake It?

When I was younger, I can't tell you the number of times someone started a gripe with the words, "If we could send a man to the moon, why can't we (insert gripe here)..."


I haven't heard that saying for quite some time now, but a few years ago, there were a few people who began claiming that we never even went to the Moon, but rather our government faked the whole thing to freak out the Russians with our superior technology.

I'm not going to repeat the claims of the "Moon Landing Hoaxers" or the hoax debunkers here, you can do a quick search and see what they're saying, but a friend sent me a link to this creative video where a photographic expert explores the issue from a unique perspective.  His basic premise is, we probably had the technology to go to the moon in 1969, but we certainly didn't have the technology to fake it.

Anyway, it's worth a watch.  I certainly enjoyed it.

To be honest, Nate, I just couldn't watch it. Boring.

Glad you're back, Nate. My great uncle always thought the moon landing was fake, but he was a natural-born skeptic. His sister, my grandmother, had a different take. She thought the moon landing was real, but it affected Earth's weather. She would have blamed global warming on the Apollo project!

At home I have a Dutch book titled "The Earth is round?" describing the theory that the Earth is in fact flat. Flat like a pancake, with the South Pole being the edge. It's from 1954, so that's not so long ago.

Ellena said...

The Earth being round or flat, them having landed or not on the Moon - who cares - where/how is Nate?
