Some Americans now ask, "Was the moon landing a hoax?" Is this actually possible; would the U.S. government lie to our nation, let alone the whole world? The answer, no, should jump out. Hoax believers (HBs) thought they researched this thoroughly and gained enough evidence to prove that the moon landing was a hoax, but they don't know jack! Their whole case can be compared to a brick house with one difference. It seems like the bricks have all the corners, sides, and shape of a house. The evidence seems to be very strong, but the bricks are only one dimensional. All the "supposed" evidence crumbles after a little research. In this report I will show HBs falsified case along with the truth.
One of the most well known theories claims that no blast crater exists on the moon. In the photos showing the landing of the lunar Lander, there should be a little crater underneath the rockets of the Lander caused by the 10,000 pounds of thrust the rockets produce, right? Wrong! "When someone driving a car pulls into a parking spot, do they do it at 100 kilometers per hour? Of course not. They slow down first, easing off the accelerator. The astronauts did the same thing" (Bad). The Lander slowed down to approximately 3000 pounds of thrust. Also, most believe that the thrust of the rocket would penetrate the area directly under it, but they are wrong! Since the moon has no air, due to the absence of an atmosphere, a vacuum is present. This means the pressure of the Lander spreads out(Bad). The next theory also has to do with the air on the moon.
Another claim that has been made is that Neil Armstrong's foot print would not be distinguishable. Imagine dumping a pile of powder onto kitche...

...ng then why don't they get some evidence that actually holds some ground.
At first, I wasn't sure what to think. When I first saw a Fox story attempting to persuade it's viewers that the moon landing was a hoax, I decided to do some research on this whole hoax theory. After viewing numerous articles and web sites, I concluded the HBs were absolutely wrong! Many of their theories are easily proven wrong and are pretty ridiculous after a little analyzing. Also, it seems pretty outrageous that the government spent billions of dollars on a bunch of crap. How in the world would such a huge conspiracy stay covered up after 30 years with so many people having to be in on it?

- The Moon Landing Was Not a Hoax Some Americans now ask, "Was the moon landing a hoax?" Is this actually possible; would the U.S. government lie to our nation, let alone the whole world. The answer, no, should jump out. Hoax believers (HBs) thought they researched this thoroughly and gained enough evidence to prove that the moon landing was a hoax, but they don't know jack.

- “That’s one small step for man, one giant leap for mankind,” is one of the most recognized quotes by Neil Armstrong as he was taking the first human steps on the moon. But was he actually on the moon. Some would say that on July 20, 1969, man did not make it to the moon and Neil Armstrong and Edwin Aldrin never touched the lunar surface of the moon. The explanation is that the government faked the landing and moon walk somehow. Why fake the moon landing though. This was a momentous time in American history and it could be a lie....

- A Wednesday morning on July 16, 1969, a fervent crew of three astronauts including Neil Armstrong, Michael Collins, and Edwin Aldrin, Jr. was launched by a Saturn V rocket into a controversy. Apollo 11 departed from Cape Kennedy into Earth’s orbit after Columbia, the service module, attached itself with the lunar module, Eagle, and continued the group’s journey towards the Moon. By July 20, Apollo 11 approached the craterous satellite after hovering in its orbit for twenty-four hours. Armstrong and Aldrin allegedly ambled over the lunar surface upon the Lunar Module’s arrival on the Tranquility Base, Armstrong reporting: “The Eagle has landed”.... [tags: Apollo 11 mission, NASA]

- “Every sight in space is spectacular.” This was said by Neil Armstrong, the first man to supposedly land on the moon. The question is, did he really land on the moon, or was it a broadcasted fraud. Thousands of Americans argue that it was a setup such as the attacks on September 11, and every day, somebody changes their opinion on what really happened. For many years, people have been trying to figure out this occasion, and ever since Neil Armstrong, Michael Collins, and Buzz Aldrin Ventured down from the moon, conspiracies have been appearing....

- 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. Research has found that 50% of Britons do not believe that the moon landing ever took place, even though the event was televised internationally.... [tags: Apollo 11, Moon, Neil Armstrong, Apollo 17]

- The Faux Moon Landing Theory July 20, 1969, in the midst of the Cold War, Neil Armstrong, Buzz Aldrin, and Michael Collins made history as the first humans to land on the moon. They returned home safely and America beat Russia in the race to get a human to the moon, one win in the great Space Race. However, some people think that they never went to the moon. According to conspiracy theorists, the moon landing was an elaborate hoax staged by the National Aeronautics and Space Administration, or NASA, and the United States government to claim victory in the great Space Race, basing their arguments on photographic errors and the effects of radiation....

- Do you believe in the moon landing conspiracy. There are various theories that skeptics compose to attempt to accuse NASA of faking the Apollo moon landings, although all these simple explanations will prove these theories wrong. The moon landing conspiracy was “claimed” to be a hoax since it was the only time the U.S. has ever landed on the moon was under Nixon’s administration, and the reason for this is after we finally made it to the moon the interest for the USSR else to make it there died out just like the flow of money that had been invested into the missions; skeptics attempt to say that it was faked since even with the technological advances we haven’t been back to the moon, but thi...

- Conspiracy theories have been around since the beginning of time. When NASA sent the first landed on the moon, there are people who believed that NASA faked the moon landings. 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 "Moon Hoax" has been around since 1835, when the New York Sun printed an article about this whole ordeal. The New York Sun used and credited Sir John Herschel, who was a British Astronomer. Herschel claimed that he had tried out a new type of telescope on the Cape of Good Hope in January of 1834. While in Cape Town, he said he'd set up an Observatory. Using this, he claimed to have observed what he thought of as the "Real" Moon. He claimed to have seen vegetation, bodies of water, and living creatures.... [tags: Publicity Stunt Media]

- The Lunar Landing Hoax Theory - Evidence Pro and Con A cash reward of $100,000 was offered to anyone who could prove, with conclusive physical evidence, the existence of the moon. This reward still remains unclaimed ("The Moon-The Real Truth"). After all, how does one know for sure the moon even exists. Even if it does exist, how does one prove it. That's what NASA set out to do in the late 1960's. On July 20, 1969 Neil Armstrong planted the first human footprints in the lunar soil. The United States had accomplished their goal in sending men to the moon.... [tags: Argumentative Persuasive Essays]
