Does anyone else find it strange that decades before the internet, nanotechnology and cloning, NASA were able to build a rocket that could not only land on the moon, but live broadcast the event to million people? Was the moon landing fake? This is one of the most obvious stuff ups in the staged moon landing hoax. NASA produced an abundant supply of photos and video footage to support their moon landing. But, it soon became evident that there was something a bit fishy about these photos on the moon; ever noticed that the angle of the shadows do not match up? Shadows are caused by light sources.

The moon landing gets a surprisingly suspenseful IMAX treatment in ‘Apollo 11’ | Movie review
It has been 47 years since Neil Armstrong first set foot on the moon and uttered those iconic words. Although all elements of the mission were extraordinarily complex, few people ever think about how the famous footage of Armstrong was taken. In truth, the cameras used to record the first footprints ever made on the moon were almost as complex as the science that took them there. While Hasselblad was the camera manufacturer of choice for NASA, the cameras were heavily modified to ensure that they could function in space and take the iconic photos we look back on today. Neil Armstrong and Buzz Aldrin had access to two Hasselblads.
