There are hoax theories tht say that Neil Armstrong's landing on the moon was simply a conspiracy staged by the NASA and that it isnt possible that he landed on the Moon.

A few of the doubts raised after looking at the images of Armstrong on the moon were-

1) How could the American flag be fluttering if there is no air on the moon?

2) How can the Astronauts leave such a deep footprint when the gravitation on moon is 1/6th of that on Earth?

3) The light source under which the pics were taken appeared to be a close and bright light source... Mysterious object eh..?? Wink

4) Going by the gravitation on the moon there nothing such as Moon Walk... it would be Moon- flying... Yet the astronauts were seen walking on the surface of the moon with small jumps...

5) Some reports on FOX TV say that a telecast in Australia showed a Coke can lying nearby... (Aliens on the moon who drink Coke??)

6) There were no stars visible in the Moon Sky

7) The pics seem to suggest cameras oriented in all directions where there werent supposed to be cameras... Who was filming it all??

8) The Moon landings took place during the Cold War. Why didn't America make a signal on the moon that could be seen from earth? The PR would have been phenomenal and it could have been easily done with magnesium flares.... There are many more such points in the link provided below...

There have been scientists who have been rebutting the conspiracy theory trying to provide scientific explanations to rubbish these allegations...

What do u personally think...?? And why?? (Any Scientific explanation from ur side..??)

i'd love to believe that.. Smile

there are 100 conspiration theories, some that even deny september 11.. as long as man's moon-landing is not hurting anyone / harming the force of earth-life in a negative way, I'd like to believe it as one leap to remember   Smile

2) How can the Astronauts leave such a deep footprint when the gravitation on moon is 1/6th of that on Earth? surface is softer

3) The light source under which the pics were taken appeared to be a close and bright light source... Mysterious object eh..?? Winkmust be a meteor...

4) Going by the gravitation on the moon there nothing such as Moon Walk... it would be Moon- flying... Yet the astronauts were seen walking on the surface of the moon with small jumps... they were trying to play hop-scotch against gravity...

5) Some reports on FOX TV say that a telecast in Australia showed a Coke can lying nearby... (Aliens on the moon who drink Coke??) cant armstrong drink one!!!!?

6) There were no stars visible in the Moon Sky.cloudy day ......

7) The pics seem to suggest cameras oriented in all directions where there werent supposed to be cameras... Who was filming it all?? camera on the ship

8) The Moon landings took place during the Cold War. Why didn't America make a signal on the moon that could be seen from earth? The PR would have been phenomenal and it could have been easily done with magnesium flares.... There are many more such points in the link provided below...going so far they ony wanted to get back asap... forget cold wars and flares....LOL

Ah conspiracy theories are intriguing. While I do not care for them, they can be fun and it is interesting to see counts and counterpoints.

The only thing I am really curious about is why has no man landed on the moon since 1972? And why did the space race end with the cold war.

From his office in Nevada, entrepreneur Dennis Hope has spawned a multi-million-dollar property business selling plots of lunar real estate at $20 (10) an acre.

Mr Hope exploited a loophole in the 1967 UN Outer Space Treaty and he has been claiming ownership of the Earth's Moon - and seven planets and their moons - for more than 20 years. These are "truly unowned lands", he says. "We're doing exactly what our forefathers did when they came to the New World from the European continent." Hope says he has so far sold more than 400 million acres (1.6 million sq km), leaving a further eight billion acres still up for grabs. Buyers include Hollywood stars, large corporations - including the Hilton and Marriot hotel chains - and even former US presidents Ronald Reagan and Jimmy Carter. George W Bush is also said to be a stake holder. Mr Hope claims to be selling 1,500 lunar properties a day. He allocates land by simply closing his eyes and pointing to a map of the Moon.
Dennis Hope
No government has yet recognised the lunar sales as legally binding
"It's not very scientific but it's kinda fun," he says. It is fun that has already made him $9m (4.5m). The next race to exploit the Moon was started by President George Bush in January 2004, when he committed the US to returning to the Moon by as early as 2017. He said the US aimed to establish a long-term lunar base by about 2020. "We're talking about not just going there to stay three days," says Nasa rocket engineer Dr John Connolly. This time, he says, "we're talking about the idea of learning to live there." Commercial frontier Other countries are also making plans. China - which has already successfully launched two manned space missions - has announced a similar timetable. Russia, for nearly 50 years one of the world's leading space powers, may not be far behind. Europe, Japan and India have also expressed an interest.
A metric ton of helium 3 would supply about one-sixth of the energy needs today of the British Isles
Harrison Schmitt
Behind all this lies a growing belief that, within a matter of decades, the Moon will be much more than a scientific outpost; it could become a vital commercial frontier. Large private companies and rich entrepreneurs have also seen a new business opportunity. One of the biggest is US space contractor Lockheed Martin, which is currently developing technologies that will enable future lunar residents to exploit the lunar surface. In particular, it is working on a process which will convert Moon dust into oxygen and water. It may even be able to turn it into rocket fuel. "Just like we use resources here on Earth in order to live off the land - you can do the same thing on the Moon," says Lockheed Martin's Dr Larry Clark. But this is peanuts compared with what scientists believe is the real prize lying in the moon rocks. Mining the Moon Data collected from the Apollo Moon landings have indicated that large deposits of an extremely rare gas called helium 3 are trapped in the lunar soil. Scientists believe that this helium 3 could be used to create a new source of almost inexhaustible, clean, pollution-free energy on Earth.
Harrison Schmitt
Mr Schmitt was in a "geologist's paradise" walking on the Moon
One of them is Dr Harrison Schmitt, a member of the 1972 Apollo 17 mission and the only trained geologist ever to walk on the Moon. "A metric ton of helium 3 would supply about one-sixth of the energy needs today of the British Isles," he claims. Plans are already afoot in the US and Russia to strip-mine lunar helium 3 and transport it the 240,000 miles (385,000km) back to Earth. The Moon, claims Professor Jerry Kulcinski of the University of Wisconsin-Madison, could become the Persian Gulf of the 21st Century. "If we had gold bricks stacked up on the surface of the Moon, we couldn't afford to bring them back. This material - at several billion dollars a tonne - is what makes it all worthwhile." Lone voice Not everybody is happy with the idea of exploiting the Moon. Edgar Mitchell was a member of the 1971 Apollo 14 lunar mission. He is worried that, in our rush to exploit it, we could also destroy valuable scientific information. "As far as how the Universe works, we're just barely out of the trees. Until we know what the Moon is really all about, the idea of trying to commercialise it is, in my opinion, a misplaced idea," he argues. Yet, he is almost a lone voice. "The Moon is such a rich scientific destination, I think we need to look at it just the way we do the South Pole," explains Dr Connolly.

"We should go there, find everything there is to find out scientifically. There are a number of resources that we know can be of great benefit."

So what about Above News??EmbarrassedConfused

LOLLOL I wish it were as simple as that!!

Its great to know that people have so much of faith in the NASA.... But then the Soviet-USA space rivalry isn't something to be ignored.... If this theory is true... Then the biggest reason would be that the USA wanted to belittle the USSR and its space mission... And that isnt too hard to believe!!

People saw the two buildings collapsing on Sept 11... But Did anyone see Neil Armstrong landing on the moon??

The Moon would have been an ideal surface to study many physical phenomena.... Yet... No man has been sent to the moon for over 25 years... Wink This is something that baffles me greatly....

People have only been makin "plans" of going to the moon and sending expeditions... If the first step on moon really happened o many years back... The moon should have been a happy hunting ground for astronauts by now!!
