  • Essay On Apollo 11 Hoax

    the Apollo 11 landed successfully on the moon and Neil Armstrong officially became the first man ever to step onto the celestial body. It was a moment of great victory for the U.S. It was a moment which would be remembered in scientific history for a long time: but is it remembered for the right reasons? There are many people that believe that the landing of 1969 was a hoax. They believe that it was filmed in a studio somewhere within Area 51 and was just a desperate attempt to beat the Russians who were also planning to send a man to land on this heavenly body orbiting the earth.

When astronaut Buzz Aldrin was putting the American flag on the moon, the flag was rippling as if it was blowing in the wind. This should be impossible since space is a vacuum and there are no particles which would be able to create this wind therefore this must have been filmed on earth where wind is very common.

In the videos and…
