The conspirasphere has been buzzing because of Buzz Aldrin. Edward E Aldrin Jr. is a NASA astronaut who is one of a two-man crew who supposedly landed on the moon on
July the 20th
1969 with the Apollo 11 mission, the first to claim a manned
landing on the moon. Aldrin and his fellow spaceman, Neil Armstrong, then
supposedly walked on the moon's surface wearing space suits. It is one of the
greatest moments in human history. The fuss comes from an interview he did last
year with an eight year old girl called Zoey. What he says in this discussion
has been assessed by some people as a confession that the moon landings were
faked and he did not walk on the moon. The actual dialogue runs thus:
Zoey: Why has nobody been to the moon in such a long time?
Aldrin: (Laughs) That's not an eight year old's question; that's my question. I want to know, but I think I know. Because we didn't go there and that's the way it happened; and if it didn't happen it's nice to know why it didn't happen, so in the future, if we want to keep doing something we need to know why something stopped in the past that we wanted to keep it going (sic). Money is a good thing."
Zoey's question is a very pertinent one. In fact any science fiction or space fan from the 1960's who could see into the future to the present day would gasp in dismay. Progress was so swift in the first decade of space exploration. The first rocket flew into space in October 1957, this was followed by the first astronaut, Yuri Gagarin, in April 1961, and then the Apollo missions sent men to the moon and they began just seven years after that. If that rate of advancement had continued we would have had everything that was predicted at the time, a permanent moon base by the 1980's, missions to the outer planets by the 1990's and the ability to take a holiday on Mars by 2018. Yet since the Apollo missions, we have not travelled one single time above low earth orbit. Instead we have such comparative trivialities as the Space Shuttle and the International Space Station. Why is the true continuation of space exploration so damn boring? As for Aldrin, I don't think what he says counts as a confession, especially if you watch the entire interview and put the comment into that context, see: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Y4UP6nRMuGs. Aldrin's manner is strange; he speaks slowly and uncertainly, sometimes tripping over his words. He is eighty-eight years old and has perhaps become afflicted by dementia, which is sadly very common among people of his age group. During the last few years there have been some strange reports about Aldrin's activities, see: https://hpanwo-voice.blogspot.com/2016/09/obama-in-antarctica.html. Despite this not being a confession, the fact that it was even perceived as one, even mistakenly, has caused such a pressure of conversation that it has forced the mainstream media to cover it in a damage control operation. This Morning hosted a brief debate on the subject and invited on a fake moon landing researcher called Martin Kenny. This is somebody I've never heard of before, which is strange because I thought I knew everybody in this field personally. He makes some valid points but then stumbles in a frustrating manner when the pro-Apollo guest replies to him. He then describes the moon as a "luminary" and continues with some other incomprehensible statements, see: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=cnc_X-oDWsE. Why was Marcus Allen not in his place, or Mary Bennett, or Andrew Johnson, or myself? In December we will be at the half-century anniversary of Apollo 8, the first manned lunar mission. This will represent a massive informational choke-point for NASA and they will be prepared with more tricks to prevent the truth coming out.
