The Moon Landing Conspiracy. Part 1 – The Set-Up

If you are old enough you may remember that way back in 1959 Bill Kaysing predicted that the chances of flying to the moon and returning alive were about 7 in 5000.

This was due to the inherent risks such as meteor showers and the ever-present threat of radiation.


Unafraid of a challenge, president John F Kennedy made a bold speech just 2 years later, claiming that such a challenge was not beyond the reach of America –

‘I believe that this nation should commit itself.

To achieving the goal, before this decade is out, of landing a man on the Moon and returning him safely to the Earth.

No single space project in this period will be more impressive to mankind or more important for the long range exploration of Space.’

Though Kennedy was not around to see it, his challenge was indeed met some eight years later when, on the 16th of July 1969, Apollo 11 was launched on it’s mission to carry 3 men to the moon and back.

Four days later, as the story goes, Apollo 11 successfully landed on the moon.

Neil Armstrong climbed down from the Lunar Module and spoke those immortal words –

‘One small step for man one giant leap for mankind’

With one single step Neil Armstrong won a huge propaganda war for the U.S. who were, at that time, engaged in the Cold War with Russia.

Whilst the moon landing was heralded as a major coup at the time, many people have since begun to question whether it really did in fact happen.

There are many reasons why some people are skeptic and believe that the moon landing was a political conspiracy or simply a hoax.

  1. Has anybody watched little britain usa? There was 8th man on the moon. Truly hilarious 🙂

    I wonder about the flag fluttering on the wind – have anyone noticed wind on the moon?

  2. Patrick Morley says:

    I think it is good to question the world we live in but everyone who was around in 1969 saw the film footage of the landing. How can anyone doubt that it took place?

  3. Some people are so bored that their minds do overtime and doubt everything, even the obvious. Somebody help them.

    • But what if there is evidence that contradicts the ‘facts’? Is it not worth even considering the possibility that the moon landing was faked?

  4. It’s like JFK made a boast and the US had to respond to save face. I think the landings were hoaxed and filmed in a studio. Interested to see what else you have to say about this today..
