5 White – Moon landing fact or fiction?

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?

c-rock

What do you think and why? I am looking forward to reading your thoughts on this.

  1. I think the moon landing is real because they had bad technology and I think it is real because there were people already on the moon and how can other people can come and change the camera and even they set home they can not take the camera off them they would he’d to the rocket launchers and they would tell them if they forget anything.even at night time they won’t take it because they would hide it in a in a secret place or sleep which it like a teddy bear but hard and if they finds out were they are hiding the camera they would delete it not mack it look like it was fake

  2. The moon landing was fake because the American wanted to be more better than the Russian but the Russian know that the American fake the moon landing they
    Know because of the footage and the man on the moon was faint that means the American did it in a studio and used string from the roof to used to jump. And it didn’t have gravity

  3. I think the moon landing is real because if the moon landing was fake then it would of there could of been more quality because it would of been in the studio whereas it was real,it would have been blurry.I do think the moon landing is real because
    in space there would have been no air but there would have been more air in the helmet but it was fake in the studio.

  4. It is fack because you can’t see it more and the man was with his partner and they went to the moon and there is now gravity on the moon after the moon they came back on to land and the man was so happy and they went to the partner and said thank you then the partner how nice of you and then the partner said can we go again.

  5. I still think it is fake as they could of used green screen and film it good but
    but then the could get the best Hollywood editors and so they can make it look
    like the moon.Another giveaway is the c on the rock as we have safari and
    images they could get it from images and also the flag was moving SO IT IS FAKE

  6. The moon landing is fake because we can jump higher then the people on the moon because there is more gravity then earth.When the person was on a fake moon we could see through his body when he went further and the camera would be floating.Neil Armstrong never went to the moon and the blast was fake because America did not have enough money to get a rocket ship so they got a fake clip of a rocket launch and put it in the the TVs show and then used the green screen to Petened that they landed on the moon.THATS WHY I THINK IT IS FAKE.

  7. I think the moon landing is real because how can they get vacuum suck out all the air that is impossible. Also the video was not good quality so if it is surely be better.
    I think it,s real becuase the Russian could of rocked the vidoe

  8. I believe this is fiction because you can see through nial Armstrong and if you look closely when he skips to the camera at the right hand side and you see a glitch at the left hand side plus he runs,skips and jumps to fast

    THIS IS FAKE

  9. I think the moon landing was fake because in the text they said that they put wires into the austronaut costume and the flag was moving.when the Neil Armstrong put his foot on the moon and was walking he was moving to fast because if there was no gravity Neil Armstrong would be walking very slow but if there is gravity he would be walking perfectly fine like a normal person. Plus they didn’t have enough money to buy a rocket.The C on the rock was to put in the correct space in the studio.They might have used a studio as a green screen to make it look like Neil Armstrong landed on the moon.

  10. I have changed my mind about this moon landing and in think that it is real because if it was filmed in a studio it would have been better quality don’t you think or if the Russians might have wrecked the quality of the video of Neil Armstrong on the moon. The c rock wasn’t a prop because I researched and people have said that I was a glitch or Neil Armstrong hair in the picture.
    Also if it was filmed in a studio to make weak gravity you can’t just suck air into a vacuum that is impossible.

  11. I think the moon landing was not true as first the flag was moving and they did not jump high and who would video. We don’t know if he actually landed.

  12. I think the moon landing is fake because they can’t efford so much money and the c on the rock can just be hair and also if Neil Armstrong was the first man to step on the moon who had been videoing.

  13. I think the moon landing was fake because when you’re on the moon you can’t move quick. When you’re on the moon you move slowly because there is no gravity.Also when the man came towards the camera you could see through him.I also think it’s fake because the Russians might have edited the video.Maybe the people used a green screen because they didn’t have enough money to buy a rocket.They also might have used technology.

  14. It is fake because the spacemen were hold on wires and the flag was not supposed to wave because there is no gravity and on the rock there was a c and he was jumping really low he is too jump high because there is no atmosphere and he had no money to buy the rocket or go to space there is not supposed to be shadows because it is really dark

  15. I have to say I agree with Mrs Edwards, I believe that they did in fact land on the moon. Remember we were looking at facts and opinions. The conspiracy is a theory making it more of an opinion, there are scientific facts to support the moon landing. I personally feel the “c” rock was a glitch with the developing process of the picture. I have really enjoyed reading your responses to this blog.

  16. I think this is fake as, it has been stated that there was a c rock which was a prop but the opposition object (Neil Armstrong) as they state it was a hair witch fell fron the camera Lense.
    It has also been stated that there was no stars int the back ground. Neil and his directer has said there was no stars as the street light were to bright and you can’t see them.
    it has also been reported that they were doing the landing in a studio and were hanging of wires and stringers
    My opinion is that the quality was bad but they made it even worse to cover bad editing

  17. I think the moon landing was fake because there were different lengths of shadows. Also there are no stars in the background but people say that the sun reflection was to bright so you couldn’t see the stars.

    The “c” on the rock,I think this is just a hair on the camera or maybe the Russians typed the c on it because Russians hate Americans. I think the c means conspiracy ,as it means a secret plan,because the Russians found out that it was fake and edited it to tell the people that it’s fake.

  18. I think the moon landing is real because when they put the flag th pushed it in and moved it about . Also the C rock was a stray hair or someone took the untouched photo and just randomly put a C on the rock as they were jealous. Also I argue with slam and the people that said Neil Armstrong moved to fast.

  19. I think the moon landing was fake as you can see right through the body when it gets a bit closer, even if the cameras had bad quality in the 1960’s, this is definitely worse.Also, the flag was waving when there is no air on the moon, it should just fall onto the floor.There is also a ‘C’ on the rock so it must be a prop, the ‘C’ could be to tell them where the rock prop should be, if they noticed the ‘C’, they would have turned the rock around, but they did not.I did a bit of research, but the photo’s also had bad quality.

  20. As well as if he placed the flag in the studio it would be floppy, however if it was on the moon it would had stayed straight like in the video. Further evidence, is I found out that Neil Armstrong is able to jump high or low as he wants because of his weight and their is 0 gravity. If they suck out all the air with a vacuum first of all that is impossible and second of all they would have no oxygen and will die. I thought about this and if it was in a studio the video would be better quality but it was the 1960s so the technology was not that good However, it could still be fake because the russians could have rocked it.

  21. The moon landing is real although, some one tampered with the footage and picture so as a result,it looks fake. This so called “C” rock could just be another person who went to the moon before but it wasnt recorded in the year. The least possible explanation is that maybe another life form learnt how to write English. If you are asking how did they film it? Then here is the answer: the recorder could just be a droid, or some one who could resist the temptation to jump.
    BUT, it could also be fake, because maybe Neil Armstrong could not actually be there it could just filmed in a studio and Neil was edited in. Maybe he isn’t even real. And you can see through him,but maybe you can see through him because the signal was week but was stable at the time. Maybe they just used a studio and the dust gathering in clouds was edited out.

  22. The Moon Landing 1969
    I think the moon landing was real because Neil Armstrong’s hair went on to the rock and it created a ‘c’ on to the rock. If it was fake some one would have wrote the ‘c’ on to the rock . Also if it was fake there would be hair on the camera when they were taking the photo with the camera.

  23. I think that the moon landing is fake because there was not any stars in the background and when the people was standing still they both had different shadow lengths.I also do believe and think that they were connected to wires.
    When they placed the flag on the moon the flag was waving.I think that the Russions wrecked the video on purpose to make it look like it was real.I think that the on the Rock was just a little hair that was on the camera.

  24. I think the moon landing is real because if the moon landing was fake,then it would’ve had been better quality because it would be in a studio whereas if it was real,it would have been flickering and blurry. I also think the moon landing is real because in space there would have been no air but there would have been air in the helmet,but if it was fake in a studio,how would they be able to suck the air out of the studio? Also I think it is real because Neil Armstrong was jumping quite slow and trying to run but there was no gravity so he kept on floating up.

  25. The moon landing was fake because you can’t run it is imposslie because if you run on the moon fly up but Neil Armstrong did’t fly up he stay on the ground

  26. I think that this moon landing was fake because there was no stars in the background and you are supposed to see stars when you are on the atmosphere of the moon right . Also this is fake because the flag was moving and there are no air on the moon so how can it move around also it should’ve been completely straight.

    I think that the C rock was a prop because I thought that the c was going to tell them where to put it, they also took a picture of the prop without noticing that they should have turned it around proving that it was a rock from the moon.

  27. This moon landing is fake because the
    the flag was waving and there were no
    stars in the sky they were trying to prove
    that there recoding is better then Russia
    so that’s why it is fake and they were walking
    really fast.

  28. Miss Redhead I do think Neil Armstrong landed on the moon as after doing some more research I found some photos of the landing sites from the 60’s. I think that the ‘C’ is just a hair! Looking forward to the rest of your ideas.

  29. I think the moon landing is real because how can they get a vacuum to suck out all the air that is impossible. Also the video was not good quality so if it was in a studio the quality surely be better. So I think it is real but the Russians could have wrecked the video.

  30. The Moon Landing 1969
    I think the moon landing was real because if the moon landing was fake and was taken place in a studio, the people won’t by able to suck all the air.As a recult, the people won’t be able to breath and they might die.Because the moon has 0 gravity,the astranout(Neil Armstrong)is able to jump high or lower as he wants with his force(weight).Also,if he was planting the flag in a studio the flag would become droopy and floppy but if this was done on the moon it would stay sraight as it is in the video.
    Because Neil Armstrong is an American,he planted a american flag at 4:17pm.What NASA said after his walk to the moon was”I can still smell the dust of the moon!”

    • The carmas in 1969, had very bad quality and may be the Russians were jealous so they might of made the quality Evan worse.If Neil didn’t land on the moon why did he say this”One step for a man and a gaint step for mankind.”
      Also the the”c” rock is real because it was on the moon unless the Russians did it.

    • I have changed my mind I think the moon landing is real the evidence I have to support this is that if they filmed the moon landing it would be very very expensive to get a machine which sucks out the air,they would also die of suffocation.Some more evidence that Neil Armstrong actually did land on the is that in space there is 0 gravity so if he wanted to he could just jump normally but as he has a heavy backpack he does not flout into out of space.The so called “C Rock “could have just been a glitch in the process or a hair on the camera. I also think the Russians must have got there hands on the original piece of tape and edited it because this happened at the same time as the Cold War.
