Conspiracy theorists claim this clip from Apollo 17 is PROOF that the moon landing was a hoax
Space lovers have reported seeing a human-like figure reflected in one of the astronauts’ visors in period clothing.
Despite visual and photographic evidence that Buzz Aldrin and Neil Armstrong plant the US flag on the moon, many people still believe the Apollo 11 moon landing was a US government hoax.
Despite six confirmed manned moon landings between 1969 and 1972, a school of conspiracy theorists would have you believe that staging the landing was definitely cheaper and easier than actually achieving it. A space enthusiast stated that while watching a film about the 1972 Apollo 17 mission, he noticed a strange human-like shape in the mirror on one of the astronauts’ visors.
NASA’s three-phase Artemis mission plan, which would cost $28 billion, aims to land the first woman on the moon in 2024.
Commander Gene Cernan, lunar module pilot Harrison “Jack” Schmitt, and command module pilot Ronald Evans were the last people to set foot on the moon during the Apollo 17 mission. But a YouTube video titled “a visor’s reflect. Where is the camera reflection from the snapshot taken? said the visor photo could be evidence of fraud, as explained in YouTuber Streetcap1’s 2017 video. Since the person was reportedly not wearing a spacesuit, the content creator claimed that a reflection of one of the astronauts in his visor appeared to reveal a “stagehand.” “You can see what appears to be a long-haired man in the early 1970s wearing a vest of sorts… and presumably a shadow of that character,” the narrator said as he outlined the character with his mouse. “Where’s the space suit on this guy?” Later in the clip, which has been viewed around three million times, Streetcap1 continues.
“I think he looks a lot like an astronaut. The bag can also be seen in the dark,” said One Penned.
“With the white, thick space suit, it definitely looks like another astronaut to me. He holds himself upright with his arms stretched slightly forward and the shadow of the spacesuit’s bulk, including the life support on his back, is visible,” he added
“All I can see is a distorted image of an astronaut due to the curved reflection on the helmet. It could be anything, including an extraterrestrial from outer space, one might argue. but it isn’t… Because of the way reflections work and how the enlargement of an image from an old movie turns out, the astronaut just looks a little odd. “There was another offer.
According to many conspiracy theories, the US government lied that they went to the moon to overtake other countries and win the “space race”. But even though such claims are refuted by space scientists, the most absurd claims are made.
Some argue that despite the vacuum in space, the US flag appeared to move in the wind. The reason given by NASA is that there would be no breeze to maintain the flag’s upright position in space, resulting in a sub-par photo. The New York Post noted that some people have said the stars can’t be seen in the images and that various shadows don’t match light sources.
