The Craziest Conspiracy Theories About the Moon Landing

On July 20, 1969, America accomplished an incredible feat: man went to the moon. More than 500 million people tuned in to watch astronauts Neil Armstrong and Buzz Aldrin walk on the surface of the moon, absolutely astonished by this technical and physical feat.

After a lengthy race against the Soviet Union to reach the moon, the U.S. took a firm hold on the title of world’s most powerful nation. And that single moon landing launched even more interest in NASA and space, and ever since the world has continued exploring all that space holds. 

But what no one anticipated back in 1969 was the wealth of people who would claim the moon landing was faked. Ever since the astronauts of Apollo 11 took their first steps on the moon, conspiracy theories have been circulating. And a shocking number of people believe the moon landing was a complete hoax.

These conspiracy theories might be crazy, but they’re surprisingly popular. Check out some of the craziest moon landing conspiracy claims floating around to this day.
