Buzz Aldrin really set foot on the Moon ?
Or was it an elaborate hoax?
Was it the mere camera trick in a studio in the Nevada Desert

I would like to call to attention to this issue.

can the flag be fluttering, when there is no wind on the
atmosphere free Moon?" Ralph Rene, a self-
taught American structural engineer kept asking himself,
after watching old video footage of man on the Moon.
He started investigating the Apollo Moon landings, scouring
every NASA film, photo and report with a growing sense of
wonder, until finally reaching an awesome conclusion: America
had never put a man on the Moon. Rene put all his findings
into a startling book entitled NASA Mooned America.

11: The shot of Neil Armstrong and Buzz Aldrin planting the US
flag on the moon's surface was taken by a 16mm camera mounted
on the Lunar Module. Aldrins shadow 'A' is far longer than
Armstrong's. Yet the only light on the moon - and the only
light source used by N.A.S.A. - comes from the sun, and should
not create such unequal shadows.
11: Buzz Aldrin stands with the sun shining down across his
left shoulder. Although his right side is in shadow, there is
too much detail shown on that side of his space suit 'B'. It
should be much darker and less visible because the contrast
between light and dark is much greater on the moon.
With no atmosphere to pollute the
light on the moon, all the photographs should look bright and
crisp. But the landscape behind Aldrin 'C' gradually fades to
darkness. This 'fall-off' effect, hoax theorists say, should
not occur on the moon. But the fading effect could have
happened because film is less adaptive then the human eye and
makes objects seem darker the further they are from the
There is a curious object reflected
in Aldrin's visor 'D' (circled in red but hard to see in this
small picture). Some theorists think it is a helicopter,
others say it is a 12-metre glass structure. N.A.S.A. claim it
is a piece of equipment on the lunar surface.
find this picture especially suspicious. Notice in the upper
right that the shadow of the lunar lander extends directly to
the right - towards the 3 o'clock position. Then how come the
rocks in the lower right foreground have shadows that point to
the lower right or 4 o'clock position? Shadows from a source
of light that is nearly 100 million miles away (the sun)
should be parallel! Even if you take into account that
perspective would call for a "vanishing point" - or
a point in space where the parallel shadows apparently
converge, then according to this picture, that vanishing point
(in this case also the source for the light) should be within
the field of view as indicated where the two yellow lines
...During 'Apollo 11' the sun was at 10 degrees above the
horizon but the pictures depict 30 degrees or so! See the
photo. Is this a mistake, or a Whistle-Blower's clue? Varying
shadow lengths within any given picture or TV scene imply more
than one light source, sometimes positioned at different
heights! Clearly, if a picture is genuine, it's not possible
to have variations in shadow direction within any one picture.
...These shots of John Young and James Irwin - like many
Apollo photos - show a lunar sky without stars (J). (Click on
the thumbnails for enlarged images) Yet with no atmosphere on
the moon, stars should be visible - a fact confirmed by Maria
Blyzinsky, Curator of Astronomy at the Greenwich Observatory,
London. If NASA could not hope to recreate the lunar sky, they
may have opted for simple black backdrops. NASA claim that the
sunlight was so strong it overpowered the light from the
stars. On the shadow side of the landing modules, there are
plaques (K) with the American flag and the words 'United
States' quite bright and clearly visible, but the gold foil
around the plaques is in near darkness. Studio spotlights
highlighting these areas, or technicians retouching the
prints, could have caused this effect.
...There is clear, irrefutable evidence that lighting was used
in the still photographs, yet no lighting equipment was
taken to the Moon. For example the sequence of pictures of
Aldrin descending the ladder in total darkness during Apollo
fig 3). David Groves PhD and David Percy have analysed the
‘hotspot’ on the heel on Aldrin’s right boot and found
that a directional light was used, it was apparently placed
just to the right of the camera position (see
illustration). This finding regarding the location
of the light source is supported by a process known as 'ray
tracing'—full details can be found in DARK MOON

......The US magically gained the upper hand and "put men
on the moon", national pride soared, the rest of the
world looked on in total amazement, what a fantastic
achievement. Speaking for myself, I was totally enthralled,
having stood wide eyed and watch the very first
"Sputnik", dogs and chimps in orbit, then Yuri
Gagarin supposedly orbiting in the night sky, and now to
witness mans first step on the Moon, bloody fantastic.
......The time frame of the "manned" lunar missions
was right smack in the middle of a solar maximum, a period of
high solar activity when it would have been most likely to see
solar flares of high magnitude erupting from the Sun, the
Soviets knew of the danger, but desperate for some sort of
tactical advantage the US went ahead with the charade, here
are the sunspot figures (smoothed) for the period of the
Apollo program when men were supposedly "walking
around" in the microwave oven on the Lunar surface, now
of course we see that for humans to survive in the environment
outside the VAB, they need specially shielded Astronaut
shelters - but these were not available for the Apollo
missions, but amazingly no crispy critters.
Have you ever thought about how much technology the world had
in the late 60's and early 70's? Was it enough to get three
men out of the Earth's atmosphere and two of them to the moon?
Maybe. But how could that be so when the computers used on the
Apollo missions didn't have any more memory than a modern day
washing machine. And the computers they used, in size, took up
more space than the ship had room for. With that in mind, and
the fact that the technology in the 60's was merely squat, how
could NASA of generated tens of thousands of such high quality
images when there weren't even computers good enough to do so?
That's where the thought of a possible sound stage comes into
...The Lander weighed 17 tons yet the astronauts feet seem to
have made a bigger dent in the dust. The powerful booster
rocket at the base of the Lunar Lander was fired to slow
descent to the moons service. Yet it has left no traces of
blasting on the dust underneath. It should have created a
small crater, yet the booster looks like it's never been
...In July 1969, more than 600 million people watched in
awe, as Neil Armstrong became the first man to walk on the
surface of the moon. The last men to set foot on the moon were
the astronauts of Apollo 17, in December 1972. But even before
this, a set of conspiracy theories were spreading, the most
radical of which claimed that NASA had faked all the lunar
landings-that man in fact never landed on the moon. Look at
the evidence and decide for yourself
...An average days temperature on the moon ranges from 260°
F to 280° F, too for film to survive. At those temperatures,
film crinkles up into a ball. About 20 miles about the Earth,
there is a radiation belt named the Van Allen belt. No human
can get through this belt, If you try than you get hit with
300+ rads of radiation. Unless they are surrounded on each
side by 4 feet on lead. There are millions of micro-metors
traveling at speeds up to 6000 MPH, which would tear the ship
to pieces. If you look at the pictures/video of people on the
moon, you will never see more than 3 stars. When the LEM set
down on the Lunar surface, it gave out 3000 lb. worth of
thrust. This would have created a massive hole underneath the
Lunar Module, but in pictures of the Lunar Module, the ground
underneath is untouched.
...I have no doubt that America has landed men on the moon.
However I believe that "black" or secret moon
programs that the public never heard about achieved this
NASA has lied and falsified many of their

capability during the height of the cold war. Deceit, Greed
and Injustice... A sad thing happened on the way to the moon.
The truth will astound you
...Those who will not accept that Apollo was a fake, have been
brain washed into believing the 30 year lies emanating from
NASA, whereby they become brain damaged, and lose touch with
reality. We've all come across them from time to time as they
re-iterate their ridiculous statements like, "I can see
the flag through my telescope", or "I saw the rocket
lift off, and the TV pictures, so it must have happened".
They also make stupid remarks like "What about the Moon
rock brought back by the Apollo astronauts". How do WE
know its Moon rock, its only NASA's word, and if it is, then
it was brought back by scoop and return probe, NOT ASTRONAUTS.
the earth, beginning at an altitude of 1,000 miles and extending
an additional 25,000 miles, lie lethal bands of radiation called
the Van Allen Radiation Belts. Every manned space mission in
history (including Mercury, Gemini, Soyuz, Skylab and the Space
Shuttle) has been well below this deadly radiation field... all
except Apollo. Recently uncovered footage of the crew of the
Apollo 11 staging part of their mission proves that the
astronauts never made it beyond earth orbit.
The goal was to fool the Soviet Union about US
strategic capability during the height of the cold war. Deceit,
Greed and Injustice... A sad thing happened on the way to the

...On July 20, 1969, the human race accomplished its single
greatest technological achievement of all time when a human
first set foot on another celestial body.
...Is it faked? Really, I don't know. If my other
theories are correct, then, yes, it is. If not, then what can I
say, I am wrong. however, it would be similar to the idea of the
lunar landings, even IF they did go by mechanical means, still,
they are taking earth frequency machines into the Mars frequency
planet, all they will see is Earth frequency existences, they
cannot enter the true Martian world with earth based elements

Apollo Hoax Discussion Web
...On 19th December 1972 the return of the Astronauts of Apollo
17 after the sixth successful Moon landing marked the end of the
Apollo era. Thirty years on, many people have been persuaded
that the Apollo missions never actually took place and therefore
represent the largest hoax in history.
...Ultimately, all of the claims made by the Moon Hoax
advocates are easily explainable with a little research, common
sense or just a plain good memory of what happened back during
the Apollo program. While we remain fiercely critical of the
NASA hierarchy in general and certain members of the Apollo team
in particular, we should not let that get in the way of our
undying admiration for the rank and file men and women,
scientists and engineers, who pulled off the most amazing feat
in human history -- the Apollo program. To give these silly
claims attention, as Fox is now doing, is an insult to those who
sacrificed, some with their lives, to get man to the Moon.
..."Moon rocks are absolutely unique," says Dr. David
McKay, Chief Scientist for Planetary Science and Exploration at
NASA's Johnson Space Center (JSC). McKay is a member of the
group that oversees the Lunar
Sample Laboratory Facility at JSC where most of the Moon
rocks are stored. "They differ from Earth rocks in many
respects," he added.
...By all means, question the experts around you and also
question those who question those experts. Look deep at the
issue and decide for yourself. Facts are facts, though, and they
will ultimately withstand the scrutiny, regardless of an experts
opinion (or of what side of the issue he stands on).
Extraordinary claims demand extraordinary evidence. The evidence
that we went to the moon with Apollo is extraordinary, while the
claims that we did not fall far short.
