Russia have announced plans to investigate the popular held belief among conspiracy theorists that the United States faked the moon landing in 1969. As alternative news websites have suggested for years, the moon landings were a hoax, filmed in a studio and broadcast to millions worldwide in 1969. There is compelling evidence that suggest the landings were faked, such as: The Waving Flag anomaly Lack of Impact Crater Multiple Light Sources The Van Allen Radiation Belt The Unexplained Object in the reflection of of an astronaut’s helmet Hidden Cables And much more … See our article on ‘Moon Landing A Hoax?‘ for more According to the Moscow Times, Russia want to investigate the suspicious disappearance of original footage from the moon landing in 1969 and the various missing pieces of lunar rock, which were brought back to earth during several missions.
“We are not contending that they did not fly [to the moon], and simply made a film about it. But all of these scientific — or perhaps cultural — artifacts are part of the legacy of humanity, and their disappearance without a trace is our common loss. An investigation will reveal what happened,” Markin wrote, according to the Moscow Times translation
The op-ed is unlikely to raise worries among NASA officials. In 2009, NASA itself admitted that it had erased the original video recordings of the first moon landing among 200,000 other tapes in order to save money, according to Reuters. However, NASA has since restored copies of the landing, using recordings from other sources such as CBS News. The organization says that due to restoration efforts, the recordings’ quality is superior to the original one that has gone missing. NASA did also emphasize the uniqueness of lunar soil and rock in the past. “They differ from Earth rocks in many respects,” David McKay, chief scientist for planetary science and exploration at NASA’s Johnson Space Center, where most of the material is stored, was quoted as saying by NASA’s Web site in 2001.
