Everyone in elementary school learns about the moon and knows that Neil Armstrong, in 1969, was the first man to lay foot on the moon. But what if he wasn’t the first person; what if no one ever landed on the moon and the landings were all a big scam? Many people believe this theory for many reasons.

Scientists oppose this idea by saying that it is, in fact possible, and add on by stating that the astronaut who was holding the flag was moving it.

Science during the renaissance played a big impact on how people looked at the universe and the environment we live in. During the Middle Ages a Roman Astronomer named Ptolemy came up with the theory that all surrounding planets orbited around the Earth. Advancement in telescopes and technology helped Copernicus during the renaissance create a more logical and accurate theory which stated how the sun is in the middle of our universe and all planets orbited the sun. This changed the way man thought because it realized how small Earth is compared to the rest of the solar system and how we may not be
