From the beginning of time, many countries have tried to surpass one another. The same case applies when talking about the U.S. and the Soviet Union’s landings on the Moon.
Suspicious Landings Are Questioned?
The timeline goes something like this. First, there were the Soviets and their success.
In April 1961, cosmonaut Yuri Gagarin returned home safe after orbiting the Earth.
It didn’t take long until the president of that time, John F. Kennedy declared to Congress the intention of the U.S. to also send a man to the Moon.
Within his Address to Congress on Urgent National Needs on the 25th May 1961, he made a statement.
This is what he declared:
“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.”
Can we add another experience to the list of known landings?
So it happened. In 1969, under the leading of Nixon, the entire world viewed the ‘giant leap for mankind’. But, unlike other landings, they have filmed this one.
With the help of Neil Armstrong who planted the U.S. flag on the lifeless planet, America came out victorious for achieving what no other country did.
But, in a world full of technology, doubt begins to set in the minds of people. So, was this all true? Are we insane to think they might have staged it all?
The Government May Be to Blame for The Landings?
Could the government have something to do with this? Since then, a number of researchers did look into the subject and may have reached the shocking conclusion that they have indeed faked the moon landing.
The theory is simple. Mainly, they think the government hired Stanley Kubrick, a film director to stage in a secret location the necessary decorations to make it look like the Moon.
There are debates about various anomalies. Sources of light which appeared on the footage, the flag was waving ( despite the fact that there is no wind in the environment), unexpected objects appeared in the reflection of the helmet and much more.
The televised video is one thing but there are other signs which make us doubt the entire Apollo landing.
According to further proof, the spaceship never made it to the moon. Why? Because the level of cosmic and solar radiations surrounding the Earth is very high. Mostly, they are known as the Van Allen radiation belts.
“The Van Allen radiation belts are a torus (doughnut shape) of energetic charged particles circling Earth around its magnetic equator and held in place by Earth’s magnetic field. The main belts extend from an altitude of about 1,000 to 60,000 kilometers above the surface in which region radiation levels vary. Most of the particles that form the belts are thought to come from solar wind and other particles by cosmic rays.” –Robert A. Braeunig
But people are questioning if the Apollo and the crew had the proper equipment to shield them from that intense radiation which surrounds our planet.
Was the Apollo Landing Real?
Based on the author of Rocket & Space Technology, Robert A. Braeunig was able to put an end to this entire theory. From his perspective, the trajectory that the Apollo was following allowed the crew to avoid the high concentrations of radiations.
He stated that by using the right trajectory, solar activity would have been the only problem.
As believable as this may seem, some still tend to question it. Yet, another issue comes along. Since the Apollo landing took place why didn’t other attempts take place? And how come only now NASA is attempting to solve the Van Allen belts challenge?
In their efforts to make significant changes, one NASA engineer stated:
“We must solve these challenges before we send people through this region of space.”
From this, all we can understand is that today, scientists are still facing some issues. If such unresolved problems are still present today, how did the Apollo mission go that well?
Questions still remain. Our beliefs and opinions will remain the exact way until we can be either proven wrong or right.
But. until then, maybe the research of Robert A. Braeunig and his theories can help to shed light on the big question within our minds: Was the moon landing fake?
