Other Media

Others totally disagree with the U.S being the first to land on the moon. Some also say it didn't even happened. As beliefs of the landing were fraud, people came up with theories to prove why it was fake and not so "real".

Bias: Story Selection - Some people believe a different story rather than believing given facts.

Criticism: Marxist - Taken as the U.S started to rise because of the Space Race, we can consider this to being Marxist due to the fame and acknowledgement the U.S was given.


One conspiracy that has everyone question if the landing actually happened or not is due to the Waving Flag. This theory sites that the American flag, once put in the moons surface, happens to be waving. Yet, in the airless lunar space, how could the american flag be waving?
Other conspiracies state things such as how there seems to be a lack of craters on the moon, The lighting is different in multiple pictures, even some say that they could see hidden cables from the "set" in which they shot it in.
