Hi 5 White,
In topic we learnt that Neil Armstrong was the first man on the moon, and what an achievement that was for mankind!
In guided reading, during our session about identifying facts and opinions, we looked at an article which suggested that the moon landing was a conspiracy!
When you were asked the question in the session ‘do you think it is a conspiracy?’ many of you seemed unsure, and wanted more evidence to weigh up the facts and opinions from the article to help you make an informed decision (very wise).
I know Eesa especially wanted to see some footage. I have found a video of Neil Armstrong on the Moon. Have a look and let me know what you think.
Do you believe the conspiracy theorists who state he was floating on wires? What do you make of the flag? What about the lack of stars in the background?
Or do you think science has answered the questions, the flag was made of a special material with special wiring to make it stand, and that the lack of stars was down to the reflection of the sun on the moon’s surface?
While I was searching for a video I noticed the quality wasn’t too great. That got me thinking why? Surely if it was filmed in a studio the quality would be better don’t you think? What do you make of the quality of the video?
What about that “C” rock? Was it a poorly placed prop or did something go wrong in the developing process of the photo?
What do you think and why? I am looking forward to reading your thoughts on this.
