A reel of film mistakenly released by NASA shows the Apollo astronauts faking a shot of the earth, making it appear they were half way to the moon when, in reality, they were only a couple of hundred miles up, in earth orbit.
This is obviously genuine NASA film, sections of it were used in the “live” stream broadcast on television worldwide. So this film clearly establishes the “live streams” were pre-recoreded and all the Apollo missions did was launch into earth orbit, and then land at the appointed time.
A Funny Thing Happened on the Way To the Moon is probably the best film ever produced on the NASA Apollo missions as it provides us with:
- A good explanation of the motives the United States government had for faking a landing on the moon. Conclusive proof the Apollo craft was actually orbiting earth when NASA were telling the world it was half way to the moon.
- Conclusive proof the astronauts, with the help of ground control, faked shots of the earth in the distance by turning off the lights and shooting a round window masked to make it appear like the earth in the distance, while actually they were still orbiting the earth.
- A good explanation of the inconsistencies in NASA’s story.
Overall A Funny Thing Happened on the way to the Moon is a short film everyone needs to see. Even if you have watched it before. Now it is looking so much better in 1080p HD, watch it again and be amazed.
