Last week marked the 47th anniversary of the 1969 moon landing. In celebration of progress and the space race, this accomplishment has long been molded into US history, and for most folks, it is viewed as fact. However, there are some conspiracy theories out there claiming that the moon landing never happened and was actually filmed right here on Earth in order to save face against the Russians. Another conspiracy theory claims alien life was discovered on the moon, causing fear and a demand for silence that prevented any return visits. So, my question for my readers is what do you think? Please share your thoughts in the comments section below.
I am simply looking to open a dialogue here. I am not sure where I stand on this, but I do know I have a lot of questions. First of all, if the moon landing was a merely a hoax, how can we explain the existence of moon rocks on Earth, or is that an elaborate hoax too? Secondly, if it did happen, why have we not gone back to the moon, or, for that matter, made any more progress in space exploration than we have over the last fifty years? With all the money, technology, and manpower available to NASA, it seems we should be far more advanced in our outer space quest. And so many things seem so hush hush… it just makes me wonder.
Again share your thoughts on the moon landing and the existence of aliens.
