NASA loses Apollo 11 original video footage - Was Apollo 11 a Hoax?


Many people feel that the Moon landing of Apollo 11 was a conspiracy and now NASA finally has to admit that three years ago that they lost their actual recording.

I'm sure most have read the conspiracy theories, the flag blowing in the wind when there is no wind on the moon, etc.

According to the NASA website, the moon has no air. That means that without air there is no wind. So how do you have a flag blow in the wind?

One place that I read said that maybe they had a meeting before Apollo 11 launched about how they were going to make the American Flag look like a prop and possibly they thought to bring some wire with them so it would stand up. HAHAHA

NASA claims they were able to restore the video by using still images from the original moon landing with voice record over.

    You really have to wonder who would record over the original footage. This is something that is suppose to be a huge part of history and they lost it. They think that possibly somebody accidentally recorded over it. Now how dumb is that and you can just imagine the conversation. "well lets see we need a tape, oh ya lets record over the first man landing on the moon, who needs that anyways"?

    MSNBC still has their own recording of the moon landing from 40 years ago, you can watch it here.
