This text is very effective in achieving its purpose because it will make people think twice about the accomplishment of the moon landing when there are already so many problems that should be dealt
When Shepard and Mitchell landed on the moon in January, they managed an impressive amount of science work, but they soon grew more confused as to where they were. They were lost during their expedition up the side of a large crater. The men soon grew tired and overheated as they pressed on toward the crater rim. They had two choices: “try and make the rim or carefully and scientifically document the rocks they were climbing past. They did neither.” They did what they could do, they grabbed samples and took some photographs before continuing
In the movie I Robot they're in a future where robots help with everything in day to day life. But one police officer (Will Smith) doesn't trust the robots and thinks they've become too untrustworthy. He soon finds himself to be right. They took over society and started killing humans. But back in the 1960's that thought didn't even cross people's minds. In the 60's technology was affected by The Space race.
On July 20, 1969, astronaut Neil Armstrong walked on the moon: or perhaps not. That is what some people think. They believe the "Moon Landings" were faked, in order to cheat the public out of billions of dollars and so that we could win the space race against the Soviet Union. According to conspiracy theorists, the scientists at N.A.S.A. realized during the Apollo missions that either is was technically impossible to reach the Moon ir that it cost too much. So, the government built a secret movie studio somewhere in the southwest and used special effects to pretend that the astronauts had landed on the Moon. Then, the "historic event" was sent through television to the entire world who, for the most part, believed it.
Now time for my rebuttal. How do you know it was the lunar buggy that left that mark? That whole scientists fired lasers thing it’s good, but how do they know it didn’t hit something else? Once again with the whole four hundred thousand people worked for ten years on this, what if they thought it was real? What if the government let them keep working to throw off our opponents?
Lunar skeptics have been around since the moon landing, claiming the U.S. Government faked the landings to top the Russians and finally end the space race.
In 1969, all of America watched as NASA sent the first manned ship into space and to the moon. Hundreds of people gathered around the launch station and thousands watched the live broadcasting on the news. As the countdown reached 0, the rocket with Neil Armstrong, Buzz Aldron and Tim Collins flew to space and America gave a sigh of relief. Now it was time to watch as Neil Armstrong took the first steps on the moon to plant the American flag on the moon symbolizing our victory in the notorious “Space Race” with the Soviet Union. It was a great day for America as we won the “Space Race” and got safely to the moon, but not everyone was happy. In this essay, I will be talking about why some conspiracy theorists think that the historical moon landing of 1969 was staged and why I still believe that it was in fact, real.
One of the theories that was spread around was that it was a UFO. People suspected it was a UFO because what they found was a mess of metallic sticks, big pieces of plastic, foil reflectors, and scraps of a heavy, glossy, paper-like material.
The hole that was left after American Airlines Flight 77 flew into the Pentagon was much smaller than the actual commercial plane. The plane was 125 feet long, however the hole left behind was 16 feet long, which lead a lot of people to question whether it was in fact the plane that crashed into the pentagon or was it hit by a foreign object and was made to look like a plane.
They claim that the military didn’t want the discovery to freak people out. To this day, people still believe that there was actually a spacecraft that crashed in Roswell. Reports kept being made of new sightings of UFOs and sometimes even attached pictures that they took. Every sighting that has been reported, has been denied and has been called a mistake. The reports are denied as flocks of birds migrating or hot air balloons in the sky, and even Photoshop. The military has announced that no matter what anybody else claims, the object that was found in Roswell, New Mexico, was just a weather balloon instrument that exploded and crashed, leaving pieces scattered all
I’m Sam Burmeister and I think the moon landings were fake. There is lot’s of evidence supporting each side of the argument. I’m going to prove evidence wrong and prove evidence right.
The event was memorable and it was remembered for several years. One of the most iconic words ever spoken happened during this landing, Armstrong gave his famous words to the rest of the world as people were left astonished. The years prior to the Moon Landing were tough. Various movements were going on and “two important leaders had been assassinated.” (Crompton 1) The Moon Landing helped in numerous ways. One was that it fulfilled Kennedy’s promise to land on the Moon, but most importantly it helped Americans continue to adhere to the American way of life, as “many feared that the beams of American life were coming apart,”(Crompton 1) and stay prideful of America for it had accomplished a difficult, long-lasting legacy, and unprecedented event. This event was highly anticipated, since ex-president Kennedy promise Americans that it would be achieved. Therefore, thousands of people came to attend the memorable event and “watch mighty boasters lift the rockets into the sky.” (Crompton 4) The high attendance proved that Americans knew that something incredible would be witnessed that could last for copious years to come and revitalize the American way of life, since it had been weakened with the previous tough years. Furthermore, the Moon Landing left millions of Americans watching this tremendous event astonished. One could
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. For starters, in the pictures and recordings it shows the American flag is flapping as if there’s wind, but in a vacuum, there physically can’t be any wind. 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. People then often ask, “where are the stars?” and scientists reply that the stars are too faint for the camera to pick up, but others dismiss the idea by saying that is absurd. John Fuller, also writes, “in one of the most famous pictures of the moon there is a “c” rock; a rock that has the letter “c” on it. This makes it seem as if everything was staged and the rocks were merely props- only the set designer was careless enough to not flip the rock over, revealing the letter.” NASA opposes all moon landing theories with their most compelling evidence; “Geologists worldwide have been examining the lunar rocks brought back by astronauts for many years-the rocks simply could not have been collected or manufactured on Earth.” Others still skeptic, are spreading their theories around, which raises the question, “Who is telling the
A great deal of people believe that the landing on the moon, or Apollo 11, did not happen. People think the U.S. filmed the “landing” in a studio because they were losing in the Space Race. The Space Race was a race to the moon between many, countries including the U.S. and the Soviet Union. At the time the U.S. was losing, so they had to land a person to the moon quicker than the Soviet Union. Did the landing on the moon actually happen, or was it all a lie?
When Neil Armstrong first touched down on the moon in 1969, millions of people watched him take the first step and create history (Villard). Yet even as we’ve moved on from the moon landings and consider them as a pivotal point for mankind, “Forty years after U.S. astronaut Neil Armstrong became the first human to set foot on the moon, many conspiracy theorists still insist the Apollo 11 moon landing was an elaborate hoax”(Than). The idea that our voyage to the moon was deliberately staged seems to resurface year after year. While the conspiracy theorists claim the moon landing was a hoax, creating a fake moon landing would have been more expensive and difficult than actually reaching the moon.
