A photo calls into question the veracity of the famous Apollo 17 lunar mission, again.
Almost 50 years after mankind successfully landed on the moon, the veracity of this exceptional achievement is under the microscope once again, by people who claim to have found evidence that the lunar landing were staged, and never took place.
Despite the fact that NASA has published thousands of images ‘proving’ their success in the space race and getting a man on the surface of the moon, and safely back home again, there are those who continue to doubt the veracity of NASAs accomplishments.
Thus, conspiracy theorists have reappeared convinced that they have proof that one of the moon landings was false.
The mission in question is the Apollo 17, a NASA mission that lifted off on December 7, 1972 propelled by the Saturn V rocket.
A videoblogger has shared a photo taken in December 1972 of Apollo’s final mission, Apollo 17. In his humble opinion, the image is fabricated, since it contains a suspicious reflection in the helmet of one of the astronauts.
Yup, based on a single reflection, a whole conspiracy theory was formulated.
In the video, the man speaking about the Apollo 17 mission says that “You can see some sort of, it looks like a man, back in the early 70’s, long hair, wearing some sort of waistcoat-type thing… and a shadow of that figure presumably.”
The blogger confesses that what made him think that something was wrong in that snapshot was precisely that, the figure of the long-haired man who was not wearing a space suit.
The Fox News has supported the controversy with a tweet: “You be the judge: Skeptics say picture debunks moon landing http://fxn.ws/2AfYTqp.”
The video posted on YouTube offers a new argument for the theory of ‘Fake Moon Landing’, which was born after the first Apollo mission of 1969.
Its followers have found alleged evidence to be everywhere: a floating American flag, the absence of the crater that should have been formed after the landing of the spacecraft, an object that resembles a lighting device (projector) that is reflected in the visor of an astronaut, and many more alleged objects that show how the moon landing was staged.
The 1972 Apollo mission was manned by Eugene Cernan, Ronald Evans and Harrison Schmitt, the first scientist-astronaut to land on the moon.
Of course, it was not the first manned mission on the Moon.
This honor corresponded to Apollo 11, with Neil Armstrong and Buzz Aldrin, who took the first steps on Earth’s satellite on July 20, 1969.
So, there you have it, another conspiracy theory which is the result of one strange figure reflecting off the helmet of one of the astronauts of the Apollo 17 mission.
