Page 1 of 50th anniversay of moon landing
I remember the day well, as we were moving into a new house, and I was sitting on a rolled up carpet watching the TV. Thats all that was in the living room LOL.
So this leads us on to the conspiracy theory, did they really get to the moon, or was it filmed in a backlot studio by Stanley Kubrick?
This is one conspiracy theory I do not want to believe, as being a si-fi nut with the idea that humans will one day get to the stars, I just hope that there is the remains of the lower half of the lunar landers, moon rovers, and American flags up there.
There is a few things that does niggle though, an example being the famous video film of the moon lander launching from the moon, with the remote camera panning up exactly with the rising moon lander. Was there a guy left on the moon to do that perfect panning?
Just one small step , but a leap for mankind. I hope.
The one moon conspiricy I do believe though it that ancient alien bases and artifacts are being covered up by NASA, including on Mars, and other places in our planitary system.
when the President of the United States can't get a blowjob in the White House without the story getting out, the idea that the moon landing was faked yet kept secret seems ridiculous.
Kubrick did indeed fake the moon landings. However, he was such a stickler for detail that he insisted on shooting it on location.
"the famous video film of the moon lander launching from the moon, with the remote camera panning up exactly with the rising moon lander. Was there a guy left on the moon to do that perfect panning?"
That was Apollo 17 (although the rover-mounbted camera was also available on 15 & 16). It was acheived through practice & timing. The rover was parked a little ways away from the lander, and positioned pointing towards it. Because of the radio signal time delay from the earth to the moon, it couldn't have been live remote-controlled from Houston, so it was simply set up to activate upon the launch of the LEM, and pan up at a known rate.
"I just hope that there is the remains of the lower half of the lunar landers, moon rovers, and American flags up there"
They are, and are clearly visible with a powerful enough telescope & knowledge of the locations. The flags, however are either bleached white by solar radiation, or, in Apollo 11's case, blown over by the blast of the lander as it took off.
Short answer to whether or not we actually landed on the moon is Russia. It was the space race, and the only countries with the tracking tech capable to track the missions to the moon & back were the US, Russia & China, who all hated each otgher (still do, oddly enough). If for one second that the events of July 1969 weren't actually playing out as depicted, those foreign superpowers would have been screaming from the rooftops that the US was lying, and would have had veriable proof as well.
We went to the moon, it was a golden time for science, but to even attempt to go back there in this day and climate is frankly obscene. Let's fix the planet, before we try to reach the stars again.

How about....'Moon is hollowed out' theory due to crashing empty lander on the moon made the moon ring like a bell for hours, as though it was hollow.
There is speculation that the moon is a actually a massive generation spaceship that carried aliens across the universe with an 'engine' on the back and eventually came here and locked into perfect orbit with the Earth tens of thousands of years ago. So most UFOs visiting Earth are from bases on the Moon rather than crossing the cosmos to get here.
The hollow moon theory is based on teraforming a moon by hollowing out areas underground for living, working, life support, probing areas, and other such alien things
There are many youtube videos on the subject, and also books. One i have in my book collection 'Secrets of our spaceship moon' by Don Wilson published 1980. its an interesting speculation.
Bandi, this is a really good theory, despite absolutely no evidence I'm going to do so, will you provide me with some money towards my scientific expedition to the moon to find out if these are true?

Yeh, you can go if you have a lot of air miles :D
Note I am not saying yeh or ney on this theory , but here is a youtube video on it....
"in their publication, they noted that if a material had to be devised to protect a giant artificial satellite...the experts would probably have hit on precisely these elements."
My girls have been learning about it at school recently, not sure if it's because of anniversary or they would anyway, but what is interesting, is they've been telling me all about Michael Collins, no, I had never heard of him either, quite sad that he isn't mentioned at the same time as those guys who had a jolly on the moon surface while he did the hard bit :)
How Michael Collins became the forgotten astronaut of Apollo 11
