Did We Go To The Moon?

Polls indicate that as many as 28%–maybe more at this point—of Americans and others believe that the Apollo program never succeeded in landing anyone on the Moon. Among the great conspiracy theories of all time, this one has been counted among the most enduring. Why? It ultimately comes down to this: The film footage and still photographs. According to a cadre of experts, the fact that there are flaws and unquenchable inconsistencies among the images is irrefutable.

The following are among the wider spectrum of alleged items that conspiracy theorists cite as evidence that the Apollo 11 mission was faked:

  • A lack of stars recorded or reported as visible in the Moon sky.
  • The American flag that appears to wave in the vacuum of space.
  • An absence of powdery dust on the lunar lander’s footpads.
  • The absence of engine sound during voice transmissions.
  • NASA’s lack of adequate provision for lunar temperature extremes.
  • No blast crater made on take-off from the Moon’s dusty surface.
  • Lighting and shadow anomalies in photographs.
  • Outright doctoring/editing of some images.

One theory explaining the claimed photo discrepancies asserts that the technical director who participated in the hoaxed Apollo 11 mission—filming for which was allegedly conducted at Area 51 in Nevada—allowed the inclusion of some damningly flawed photos in the hope that they would be discovered eventually. The technician’s hope, skeptics speculate, was that by leaving enough breadcrumbs, the truth would eventually become known that no men walked on the Moon. That is their theory.

Offering an intelligent alternative line of inquiry, Dr. Brian O’Leary, a NASA astronaut during the 1960s, speculated that: “If some of the film was spoiled, it’s remotely possible [that] they [NASA] may have shot some scenes in a studio environment to avoid embarrassment.”

Most of the discrepancies bulleted above appear to have been adequately addressed with plausible straightforward scientific explanations. However, the matter of light-and-shadow anomalies and apparent doctoring or editing of some images has not, in our opinion been explained away. Something is amiss, but does that mean we never went to the Moon? No. The Apollo missions were not hoaxed; there is too much counter-balancing evidence supporting the reality of successful missions. So how does the truth of Moon landings and exploration jibe with disingenuous photographic evidence?

PluribusOne™ Consulting has an uncomplicated, reasonable, and compelling explanation, one we have not seen published elsewhere, an explanation that, if correct, can be confirmed by an appropriate party pursuing a focused Freedom of Information Act (FOIA) request with the National Security Administration (NSA).

Here is our explanation:

There are two films, one genuine and one staged. Why? Because the purpose of the Moon mission was to gather scientific data never before made available to any human being. Knowledge is power. Such prospective knowledge required well-planned secrecy in the name of national security. No one really knew what would be found there; yet the taxpaying public would require a visual experience while their thirty-billion-dollar investment necessitated protection from powers-that-be of other nations who also dream of conquering space and dominating Earth militarily and ideologically.

    I read a believable article online that said the whole thing was staged, partly at the Atomic Energy Commission’s top secret test site in the Nevada desert and partly in a Disney Studios facility. The article lists reasons why the lunar landing never happened and argues that it was all a hoax. The list includes things beyond what you mention in your posting. It also says that all of the astronauts and the head of the Apollo program were all Freemasons, and that a photo of Neil Armstrong hangs in the Masonic Temple in Washington. DC.

  2. PluribusOne™ Says:

    Freemasons were the principal movers of the American Revolution, signers of the Declaration of Independence, and the majority signers of the Constitution. There is good evidence that Christopher Columbus was part of the plan of a secret society that became freemasonry. Its seed appears to have been planted millennia before Columbus.

    Was the Roman Empire a hoax? Was Columbus’ voyage to the New World a hoax? Was the founding of the USA a hoax? Neil Armstrong was the modern-day Columbus, the trip to the Moon was real, and colonization of the Moon will not be a hoax.

    As I said in the post, there appears to have been a staged filming, prepared in advance of the mission for the sake of maintaining secrecy with regard to every aspect in order to keep control of scientific knowledge gathered along the way toward development of lunar colonies and related new industries.

    Your explanation makes sense. Thank-you!

    In support of our two-year-old post, we note that less than an hour from now a lunar probe will be launched by NASA for the purpose of further investigating anomalous phenomena discovered by astronauts on the Moon in the 1960s and 70s.

    The LADEE—lunar atmosphere and dust environment explorer—mission will investigate mysteries discovered and held secret by NASA. Even today, NASA is showing only sketches purportedly made by Apollo 17 astronauts on September 29, 1972. The phenomena were seen on all of the Apollo missions. Can anyone think that no photos were taken? None are being made available now for debunkers to dissect.

    The scientific data and analysis are understandably kept secret from the American public in order to protect the knowledge from competitor nations such as Russia and China. I would not be surprised to learn that LADEE is actually designed to land (rather than crash, as reportedly planned) on the Moon and equipped to deploy a laser weapon (not just a laser communications device) to defend the earlier investment toward development of a lunar colony.
