Hey everyone! Today I am going to be talking about a conspiracy theory that I heard about that was pretty interesting. That is the Moon Landing Conspiracy theory. Obviously this is just a conspiracy theory, so don’t take it too seriously. Please follow me if you aren’t already and enjoy!

So, if you haven’t heard this theory, it basically says that the moon landing didn’t actually happen. People think that this was just a hoax to one up the Soviet Union.

The main piece of evidence to support this conspiracy theory is a video of the moon landing. In the video, the US flag waves. People went crazy, saying that this wouldn’t happen in space, because there is no air. When I first saw the video, I thought the same thing. Turns out there is an explanation for this. In the video, you can see that astronaut place the flag there and then move it. This movement caused the flag to ripple, like a normal flag would.

Other people are concerned with the lack of stars. With a bit of research, I found that it was because of the camera. With the light of the bright sun, it would be difficult for the camera to pick up on the stars in the dark background.

One of the other things I found is that there is a shadow. People were confused, saying that there must have been another light source to cause this shadow. It turns out that it is just the lunar dust reflecting the sunlight. The lunar dust is reflective, therefore it is just the sunlight.

So, to me, it seems like the moon landing wasn’t fake. What do you think? If you want to read more check out this website! Thank you so much for reading and I hope you enjoyed! Also, let me know any other conspiracy theories you want me to research.

  1. What is even the point of writing something like this? Truly, 6 badly written paragraphs totaling just over 300 words… I’m astonished to be honest. What are you trying to achieve here? What’s the point? You’ve just stolen photos from other websites (and FYI saying where you got the photo doesn’t make it ok, you’ve still stolen it!) and information from other websites (unsourced), without an original thought of your own. “Just my thoughts”… really?! This article doesn’t contain a single original thought besides “well, I don’t think this is true.” Then, why write about it? Why not go in depth into the theory? Why not talk about the political aspects of the moon landing? I’m gobsmacked this ended up on my Twitter timeline.

    1. I’m sorry you feel that way. As you are probably aware, I am unable to use my own photos of outer space and my own first hand information. I don’t really see how citing the photos I used is stealing but maybe I am unaware of something. Others, like myself enjoy conspiracy theories, which is who this post is aimed for. My “point” was to give a brief explanation of this conspiracy theory and point out what I thought about it. I also don’t want to just write about conspiracy theories that I think are true, it is fun to me to research them and write about them regardless of the outcome. As I said in the beginning of my post, please don’t take this too seriously. I don’t really see how your comment was necessary as I don’t enjoy putting others down, but anyways, thanks for reading.
