Moon Landing Hoax

  1. 1. By: Brad Nagel
  2. 2. <ul><li>As we all know Neil Armstrong and Buzz Aldrin landed on the moon ending the space race. Now, many years later this moon landing is thought to be a hoax. The question remains: why? Would the United States government really want to trick thousands of people? Did they really make up the entire thing or are some people just thinking this? </li></ul>
  3. 3. <ul><li>Waving Flag- the moon doesn’t have any wind, so how is the flag in the picture moving? </li></ul><ul><li>Part of a Nevada desert was said to be a mercury test site, and astronauts stayed in Las Vegas. This desert was kept private. Was it the site of the fake moon? </li></ul><ul><li>Shadows of the two men aren’t in line- the moon only has the sun as a light source, so the shadows should all be in line, but they aren’t which shows that there are multiple light sources </li></ul>
  4. 4. <ul><li>No stars in the background of pictures </li></ul><ul><li>Light reflecting in astronauts visors </li></ul>
  5. 6. <ul><li>The flag was equipped with wires that made the flag look like it was moving </li></ul><ul><li>Pictures on the moon- it would be hard to make a fake moon </li></ul><ul><li>It was perfectly possible to reach the moon at the time with the technology that they had </li></ul><ul><li>The astronauts can easily describe their journey </li></ul>
  6. 7. <ul><li>The three main reasons for a fake landing are the government used the given money to pay of debts, to take thoughts off of the Vietnam war, and to win the important space race. </li></ul>
  7. 9. <ul><li>A poll of American adults was taken in 1973 to see how many people thought that the moon landing was a hoax </li></ul><ul><li>The result was that 30% of the American adults thought that it was a hoax </li></ul><ul><li>This shows that there is an extremely large number of people that don’t trust our government </li></ul>
