Despite an incredible amount of evidence to the contrary, the Apollo moon landing conspiracy theory is alive and bigger than ever. Using social media platforms like YouTube and Reddit, these theorists have formed communities to gather and exchange more and more "proof" that Neil Armstrong and Buzz Aldrin never walked on the lunar surface back in 1969. Frankly speaking, we're a little hard pressed to understand the crazy pull toward such a theory. Even if the government did lie — which they do all the time — who cares?
We don't mean to sound insensitive, it just seems slightly counterproductive to quibble over a moon landing that happened upteen years ago, but, hey! We all have our hobbies, right? If nothing else, debunking the moon landing would call into question everything the government has ever told us and then we watch the country unfold into total anarchy — think The Hunger Games minus the bow and arrows (well, ideally minus the bow and arrows). According to Fox News:
"The video (below), which shows a picture that was allegedly taken in December 1972, is named “Reflection in a Visor." The person who posted it, using the user name Streetcap1, claims that there is a reflection of a stagehand on the helmet of one of the astronauts."
If you're too impatient to watch the whole thing, go ahead and fast forward to the 21 second mark. That's when you'll be able to see what Streetcap describes as someone not dressed in a space suit. He claims if you look closely you can see the reflection of a man with long hair, wearing some sort of waistcoat-type thing — which is reminiscent of the style during the time.
Again, while this video is pretty compelling, it's not proof enough to debunk the moon landing in its entirety. Additionally, the fact this video is still surfacing has us believing that the government isn't too worried. Should this article and all others regarding the Apollo moon landing disappear in the coming weeks, well, then that's a different story.
