On July 20, 1969, Neil Armstrong set his right foot on the moon. He was the first human being who ever walked the lunar surface. He was aboard the Apollo 11 with two other astronauts, Edwin (Buzz) Aldrin and Michael Collins.
However, despite the tantamount pieces of evidence NASA and the United States have given the public, the mission has been the center of conspiracy theories for decades. Many of these arguments pointed out that the landing was fake and staged. Despite that, no single theory has proven this claim until today.
It was not until August 2016 when a new item has suggested an evidence of a staged moon landing in the very first thing that landed on the moon – Neil Armstrong’s boots.
The boots and the footprints allegedly didn’t match which proves the moon landing was fake.
Neil Armstrong’s spacesuit is shown on the left, and his lunar footprints can be seen on the right. Astronomer Phil Plait snapped the photo of the spacesuit as the historic garment was being preserved by the Smithsonian’s National Air and Space Museum.
The other photo, on the other hand, was taken by the Apollo 11 astronauts themselves. These photos reveal that the sole of boots of the spacesuit does not match the footprints.
“That’s one small step for man, one giant leap for mankind.”
A report, however, says that the footprint shown wasn’t made by Neil Armstrong but Buzz Aldrin, his fellow astronaut. Aldrin reportedly took a photo of his own footprint so that the scientists could study the tensile strength of the surface of the moon.
There you have it, another conspiracy theory debunked.
The Apollo 11 has gained tremendous popularity throughout the years because it made history for American space travel. However, the historic event also triggered controversies since many are still unconvinced that it’s true.
21 Psychological Tricks That Can Help You Read People’s Minds
Don’t you know that much of our ability to tap into someone else’s feelings and emotions is through reading nonverbal emotional expressions?
If we are given superpowers, it is safe to assume that most of us would want to have the ability to read minds. In reality, however, this 'power' doesn't have to be fiction - it can be very achievable. Some read other people’s minds using intuition, but there are those who do it by reading a person’s body language.
Science tells us that human beings are capable of acquiring information (around 55 percent) through nonverbal communication. This includes gestures, mimics, and body movements, among many others. Use these will allow you to unmask a person and understand what they feel or think.
Below are signals that you must pay attention to, as they can help you unravel an individual’s mystery.

3 Reasons Why Commercial Airplanes Are Usually Colored White
Have you ever been curious as to why commercial planes are usually white?
You may have read on the reason behind airplane windows not aligned with the seats or why they are oval-shaped and not square-shaped. But have you ever wondered why you never see colorful commercial airplanes flying up in the sky?
If you’re curious enough to have asked such a question in your life, then the answers have finally arrived. And there are three reasons why white should be the primary color for airplanes and it has something to do with physics, safety, and financial reasons.
The color white provides a thermal advantage.
Just like your white shirt, the color white can be an advantage for planes when it comes to reflecting sunlight or heat. Other colors are great at absorbing light but not white, so the color prevents the airplane from overheating. In addition, the plane cools down faster when it stays on the ground following a flight....
Russia Wants to Build a Five-Star Hotel on the International Space Station by 2022
It’s certainly targeted towards the one-percenter.
With the hospitality industry in an intense competition and when it seems that there's nothing more to improve on the concept of luxury hotels, here comes Russia with a VERY ambitious plan - a five-star hotel ON THE INTERNATIONAL SPACE STATION.
Yes, you read that correctly. Russia wants to welcome space tourists on the ISS by 2022 and Russian space agency Roscosmos has already started looking at plans for the structure. They want the 'luxury orbital suite' to have four private cabins complete with personal portholes which the tourists can use to look down on Earth while aboard.
The luxury structure will resemble the Science and Power Module.
Now let's talk about the costs. It's obvious that not everyone can afford to stay in such a special place. For £30 million ($40 million) per person for a one to two week visit, it's certainly targeted towards the one-percenter. If they want to extend their stay up to a month, they need to fork over an additional £15 million ($20 million)....
