The Apollo 11 mission has been fodder for conspiracy theorists ever since the lunar excursion module (LEM) touched down on the moon’s surface on 20 July 1969. We’ve already debunked several of the rumors holding that it (and all of the subsequent NASA moon landing missions) were elaborate hoaxes staged at terrestrial facilities, but in August 2016 we came across a new item that suggested proof of a faked moon landing could be found by examining the boots of astronaut Neil Armstrong, the first man to walk on the moon:
The photograph of Neil Armstrong’s Apollo 11 spacesuit was taken in 2015 by astronomer Phil Plait, as the historic garment was being preserved by the Smithsonian’s National Air and Space Museum, and the Apollo 11 astronauts photographed themselves and the lunar terrain (including their footprints) as they walked on the moon.
Now the photographs displayed above are real: Take a look at the footprints on the bottom of Neil Armstrong’s boots in the left photo and compare them to Neil Armstrong’s footprints in the right photo. This is the same suit he used for the ‘moon landing’. Its clear to see that the footprints do not match, NASA must think we are stupid ? … We NEVER did land on the moon!.
The fake moon landing pictures have gone viral on Twitter with over 10 million people sharing the news.
No more lies. No more conspiracy. No more doubt. At last the truth is out.
