Some people think the moon landings are real, some think that they were faked, no one really knows for sure. Today, I am going to prove that the moon landings were faked/staged by stating my opinion, facts, and evidence. In the end to hopefully persuade you to think that the moon landings were faked. My reason for not choosing to persuade you that the moon landings were real was I do not believe it myself and I choose to think throughout this hypnotizing topic and all of the different ways that the moon landings could have been staged. Just the time period itself that we “supposedly” made it to the moon itself is absurd, the Russians were farther ahead than the U.S were.
Although many did see the event as that, other sources appealing to rhetoric saw it the complete opposite. These authors shared a common standpoint of the moon landing calling it insignificant and America wasting money on this space development event when America could have used it on other substantial and important issues. Herblock’s Transported features a man on the moon, in this drawing cartoon the man is fixated on a television and it is dark and gloomy beneath him which is Earth. On Earth, it has words on clouds, “war”, “poverty”, and “prejudice.” Herblock’s intentions in this was to show those glorifying the Apollo 11 event, first humans on the moon, do not notice what goes around the world with real issues, such as war and poverty. Herblock makes a perfect attempt on unmasking the negative and poor side of a worldwide victory and success, this proves those coming together (around the world) for a worldwide “phenomenon” but when bigger issues shown in his cartoon, examples of more significant things than the moon landing, in which many are unaware of the issues.
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
The author of Life On Mars, Tracy K. Smith celebrates this confusing and puzzled relationship of human existence with the universe. The Weather In Space and The Speed of Belief, the use of “space” as a metaphor by Tracy K. Smith to explore important questions of life about what the nature of God is, what is life all about and where do the dead people go after they die shifts to an emblem of individual journey of grief, perspective and solace. Firstly, through the opening poem “The Weather In Space”, Smith is questioning about the nature of God. She already believes in the existence of God, but she seeks to know
Space exploration has long been a debated topic. From the days where there was controversy between whether the universe revolved around the Earth, because god made humans special, to whether Copernicus’s idea that the Earth and the other planets of the solar system revolve around the sun was true. Then there was the space race where there was a dilemma based on what was ethical to be produced and sent to space (such as weaponry during the cold war). The more contemporary problem involves the exploration of space and the danger that space debris poses. We must accept however that space is our back-up plan if we were to exploit the Earth to such an extent that we could no longer survive here.
During this time, scientists conducted experiments using new instruments, like the microscope, while going through experiments with the scientific method (p. 346). Nicolaus Copernicus developed the heliocentric theory which said that the Sun is the center of the universe. This was kind a controversial statement because most people disagreed with the theory because it “contradicted the evidence of the sense” (p. 347). Johannes Kepler and Galileo Galilei were both mathematicians who indirectly worked together to provide concrete evidence that the Earth does revolve around the Sun (p. 347). Galileo used a telescope to see bumps on the moon and the rings on Saturn.
An example of a movie that exaggerates the lunar effect is "Twilight". "Twilight" exaggerates the lunar effect by using the stereotype of supernatural creatures like vampires and werewolves coming out during the full moon. Another way that the media exaggerates the lunar effect is by reporters blaming the lunar effect for causing certain events. For example, many reporters blame the lunar effect on crimes. An example of this would be "a reporter blaming the lunar effect for causing car accidents on Sunday, when in reality their were more accidents because it's busier on the weekends.
Nobody is known to be credited for the discovery of Mercury, though Timocharis made the first recorded observation of Mercury in 265 BC and does not have an actual discovery date. Mercury also has many notable features that most likely caught Galileo's eye, like it’s similarity to our Earthen moon. Mercury has a variety of craters, ridges and ranged terrain. Mercury can be said as one of the most interesting planets in our solar
Yes, exploration in space could harness a realm of danger, but that doesn’t mean we shouldn’t pursue our curiosity. As the Apollo 13 mission went wrong and the crew noticed what had to be done in order to survive, on the ground, NASA was already performing procedures to prevent future incidents from occurring. Four hours before landing, the crew shed the service module. Mission control had suggested on keeping it until then because everyone feared what the cold of space might do to the unsheltered CM heat shield. Photos of the service module showed one whole panel missing and wreckage hanging out, it was a mess as it drifted
Leaving your wife and children behind not knowing of what will happen to you in the wild mysteries of space exploration. In the film “The Martian” Mark Watney, the main character is believed to be dead and is left on the moon by his fellow astronauts after an enormous space storm. Although Mark does not face some of the other issues that are talked about earlier, he faces the most devastating consequence of them all. Being left alone in space
Myths About the Full Moon There is a common belief that the light of the full moon causes bad luck, strange occurrences, and odd behavior. Many believe that the full moon is responsible for unusual events; and, curiously, a large portion of the U.S. population also claims that the full moon promotes (or, in some cases, directly causes) people to act strangely (often referred to as the ‘lunar effect’). These strange, bizarre, and clearly baseless beliefs about the supposed ‘effects’ of the full moon are still widely accepted. One can’t help but ask: Why do people still believe in the ‘power’ of the full moon? Despite numerous studies debunking the notion that the full moon has any influence on someone’s fortune or events, and much less on human
Galbraith mentioned Fermi’s Paradox, which instantly peaked my interest. He described it as a theory stating there are billions of stars in our universe, and eventually different planets started to develop, so their must be other planets like Earth out there somewhere. The question is why haven’t we found them. Galbraith mentioned that because we have had trouble with sustainability outside of our own atmosphere, maybe other Earth-like planets are in the same boat as we are. This paradox got me thinking about space travel, and if we will be able to visit other planets like Earth one day.
It is my personal belief that the moon landings are very real. So today I’m going to set out to bring you around to my side of the argument. This essay will include many reasons and evidence so that by the end there will be very little doubt that I’m right. The evidence for the faked moon landings are actually pretty convincing, but I will convince you they are wrong. Some people believe that the moon rocks the astronauts brought back are actually from some kind of meteorite that might have crashed into the moon.
