When you hear “conspiracy theory,” your first reaction might be to laugh and turn your attention elsewhere. Whether you believe it or not, here is one bizarre conspiracy theory, with some convincing details to go along with it. The 1969 Moon Landing. Ever since man first stepped on the moon in 1969, Americans have been skeptical. This shocking theory is that the government faked the moon landing in order to win the war to space with the Soviet Union. The theory goes that NASA lacked the technology to make it to the moon, with some sources saying that NASA calculated that there was a 0.00017 percent chance that a successful moon landing would be possible. When the Soviet Union succeeded in getting the first man into space, Yuri Gagarin, NASA realized it was falling behind. Their response was to use a film studio, either in the Hollywood Hills or deep underground in Area 51, to fake the moon landing and “win” the Space Race. Several people have backed up this theory. David Groves, an employee at Quantech Image Processing,  claimed that for the shadows on Neil Armstrong’s spacesuit to be accurate, a spotlight had to be placed 24-36 centimeters to the right of the camera. Author Mike Barbara claims that pictures taken miles apart have the same backgrounds, suggesting a set was used. The high-quality tapes from the moon landing are missing, along with the blueprints designs designs of the various machines involved in the moon landing, which were destroyed by the manufacturers, Northrop-Grumman and Boeing. Shocking as this is, there is clearly good evidence backing up this theory. As William Kingdon Clifford once said, “No simplicity of mind, no obscurity of station, can escape the universal duty of questioning all that we believe.”
