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?
with Jim and his crew members, from the Kennedy Space Center in Florida. "Apollo 13, the third lunar landing and exploration mission” (Redmond 11) became more than NASA’s next space mission. The mission of the flight was to reach Fra Maura Landing Site, a long-time interest of NASA. Fra Mauro can be compared to a highland country but located on the moon. The site had young rock formations that covered less than half the moon but contained information within them that could help scientists better understand lunar geology (Jones 2).
JFK even promised to land on the moon before the 1970’s so we could’ve faked the landings to prevent embarrassment. Also, the “moon rocks” that astronauts bring to earth could just as well be pieces of meteorites. Seriously, moon rocks look similar to meteorites, but how do ordinary citizens know what a moon rock looks like? We 've never been to the moon! The rocks could have been pieces of meteorites!
Because this text is intended for a worldwide audience, the author uses language that most people will be able understand. In addition a lot of information that common people would like to know is included. The subject is the lunar landing and the speaker is a writer at the times magazine who has viewed the moon landing. This is the reason why the writer is able to explain in detail what happened.
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.”
On July 20th, 1969, the Apollo 11 with astronaut Neil Armstrong and his crew, guided by thousands of NASA technicians, supposedly landed on the surface of the moon. It was certainly one of the most extraordinary events accomplished by mankind up to that date. Neil Armstrong’s first words upon stepping on the moon surface will always be remembered “ A small step for mankind, a giant leap for humanity”. Ever since then, this achievement has been a matter of discussion by several groups that either believed or disbelieved this.
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.”
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. To begin, I will be showing you some evidence theorists use to support their claim of the landing being fake. The first is that when
Moon Landing Conspiracy 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.
A Russian team of engineers has built a micro-satellite to capture HD photos of the moon surface to find out the truth behind the moon landings of the late 60s. On July 20, 1969, Apollo 11 and its three-man crew successfully became the first spaceflight to land humans on the Moon. Or so we're told. 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 1980, physicist Luis Alvarez and his son geologist Walter Alvarez proposed the theory that a cosmic impact from an asteroid or comet provoked the Cretaceous-Tertiary Mass Extinction. Scientists later on found hints of an asteroid collision when they noticed an inordinate crater, more than 180 kilometers wide, near the town of Chicxulub in Mexico. This collision was omnipotent in strength, as it would have released as much energy as 100 trillion tons of TNT (Choi, “Asteroid Impact That Killed the Dinosaurs: New Evidence”). The asteroid impact was found to have materialized 65 million years ago, concurring with the Cretaceous-Tertiary Mass Extinction. Moreover, both iridium, a metal typically scarce on Earth’s crust but more prevalent in asteroids and magma deep within the planet, and impact ejecta, matter ejected out of a crater by an erupting volcano or during a meteorite impact, were found in anomalously high amounts in the thin worldwide layer of clay which marked the Cretaceous-Tertiary Boundary.
Armstrong realized as they got closer to the moon’s surface, that the module was destined to land in a boulder field on the moon. He immediately took manual control of the module. He had to fly the module horizontally across the surface of the moon until he found a safe spot to land. He knew that the landing location would need to be close, because the module was quickly running out of fuel. Armstrong successfully landed the module on the moon with just seventeen seconds of fuel left.
Also, there are cut banks where larger sediments are eroded due to the stronger currents. The Missoula flood was caused by deglaciation of glacial lake Missoula at the end of the previous ice age when the dams broke. It flooded Eastern Washington, specifically where the Spokane river is located. Glacial outburst flood deposits dumped much gravel and eroded basalt rocks into what we see today, such as the Bowl and the Pitcher.
Crash Near Roswell For many years, people have said that they have seen Unidentified flying objects, otherwise known as UFOs. From random farmers, to the military, to even a president of the United States, Jimmy Carter. There are famous sightings where the investigations have lasted years and months on trying to figure out if the sighting was in fact, true or not. Although there are images of these sightings, they are criticized to be nothing more than a blurred image or the work of Photoshop.
Then, the "historic event" was sent through television to the entire world who, for the most part, believed it. But if the moon landing was a hoax, thousands of people were involved. The conspiracy theorists say that the witnesses must have been disposed of. The people who believe the moon landing really happened say that it is just common sense that so many people couldn 't have been in on such a complex plan, therefore the moon landing had to have happened.
