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.
That photograph matches the tread on Aldrin’s boot, as documented in a picture taken by Armstrong as Aldrin descended the ladder from the LEM to the moon’s surface.
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.
Ancient 99-Million-Year-Old Frogs Look Just Like Modern-Day Toads
Frogs will always be frogs, whether they were born today or in the Cretaceous Period.
The world is filled with exciting new discoveries from ancient times. Scientists have just uncovered evidence that frogs roamed the Earth during the Cretaceous Period about 100 million years ago. Interestingly, these ancient toads seem to look just like their modern-day descendants.
A new report confirms that scientists have found four frog fossils in northern Myanmar. The tiny bodies were encased in amber and offer a clear glimpse at what tropical rainforests looked like in the Cretaceous Period. In any case, the discovery is groundbreaking since frogs rarely become fossils....
Elon Musk’s Flamethrowers Get Misused On Social Media Despite Strict Terms & Conditions
What better way to start a particularly hot summer?

NASA’s Curiosity Rover Finds Ancient Organics On Mars, Possible Life On Planet In The Past
The new discovery might confirm life thrived on the Red Planet billions of years ago.
Curiosity has made an exciting discovery on the surface of Mars. The rover has just found possible evidence of life on the planet billions of years ago. NASA might not quite ready to confirm that creatures once roamed the Red Planet. Nevertheless, the agency believes that the findings could mean positive things for future missions.
The NASA rover has found organic molecules in sedimentary rocks near the planet's surface. These molecules may contain hydroxen, carbon, oxygen, and nitrogen and are usually associated with life. However, their presence in the billion-year-old rocks does not confirm life on Mars just yet....
