Men, such as Bill Kaysing, the Flat Earth Society, and Davie Groves, and Bart Sibrel, have written books, delivered lectures, and made videos about why they believed NASA faked the moon landings. Based on their observations which include no stars in their pictures, NASA's drive to beat the Russians to the moon, and a way to distract people from the Vietnam war, the group believes that the moon landings were faked.
The Apollo 11 mission of 1969 marks the biggest leap in technological advancements for humanity. Neil Armstrong is seen taking the first steps on the moon forever making his mark in humanity.

There are still those who believe that the moon landing was a concoction of Hollywood special effects and NASA complicity to fool the public into believing that man walked on the moon. This paper will attempt to examine these events from a Cartesian, Humean, and Kantian point of view and try to reconcile these differing opinions.

Men on the Moon “On July 20, 1969, American astronauts Neil Armstrong (1930-2012) and Edwin “Buzz” Aldrin (1930-) became the first humans ever to land on the moon. About six-and-a-half hours later, Armstrong became the first person to walk on the moon. As he set took his first step, Armstrong famously said, “That’s one small step for man, one giant leap for mankind.” The Apollo 11 mission occurred eight years after President John Kennedy (1917-63) announced a national goal of landing a man on the
There is still uncertainty surrounding the 'supposed ' moon landing in 1969. The moon landing took place in July 1969, when Neil Armstrong and Buzz Aldrin walked on the moon. Some theorists argue that the moon landing never actually took place and was all an attempt for the United States to assert their position in the 'space race ' between America and Russia.

to the moon, the United States set the president by sending Apollo 11 on a space exploration. The United States was a front-runner in the race to land a man on the moon. Apollo 11 was launched into space in 1969 and was quite different from the Apollo 10. The successful lunar landing of Apollo 11 made the United States a respected and competitive player in space technology.
