One expert hopes to have nipped the conspiracy theory in the bud once and for amid claims it would have been impossible to hoax the moon missions.
Filmmaker SG Collins of Post War Media made a video which describes in detail how videotape technology of the late 1960s was not up to the job of making a fake moon landing.
The problem, he says, is that in 1969 there was not any video tape that could have recorded unbroken for long enough to create a fake version of the live broadcast of the mission and from the lunar surface.
The live broadcast, which was the most watched in history lasted around two and a half hours straight, with no gaps.
Mr Collins says no such video tape existed to go for that amount of time back then.
He said in the video: “Did they fake going to the moon? No, I am pretty sure they did not because they could not,
“Some people say in 1969 they were in capable of sending a man to the moon, but were able to stage the whole thing in a TV studio.
“In fact the opposite is true. By the late 1960s they did have the technology, not to mention the requisite madness to send three guys to the moon and back, but they did not have the technology to fake it on video.
“Now days it would be very east to fake the moon landing
“In 1969 it was not yet possible to fake what we saw on TV.
“Maybe people forget how primitive video was in 1969.”
Conspiracy theorists claim the lunar surface footage was filmed in a studio and played in slow motion.
However, Mr Collins, who watched the original broadcast, said at the time technology only allowed for around a minute of slow motion footage to be shown in one go, meaning the live broadcast could not have been fake.
Mr Collins video has been shared online after Express.co.uk exclusively reported yesterday how Nasa was challenged by a top moon hoax conspiracy theorist to prove it did send men to the moon.
Marcus Allen, UK publisher of conspiracy theory magazine Nexus, threw down the gauntlet at the Glastonbury Symposium, an annual event dedicated to the paranormal and conspiracy theories, in the Somerset town.
He argued if it had happened we would still be going today, and it was not even possible to fly through the radioactive Van Allen belts between the earth and moon.
Commentator Mark Whittington wrote in response on blastingnews.com: “A conspiracy theorist called Marcus Allen expounded on the man never went to the moon theory.
“Allen then threw down the gauntlet and demanded that NASA prove that it went to the moon 49 years ago.
“NASA, Marcus Allen’s rantings aside, has already provided ample proof that the moon landings happened as advertised, even going to far as to provide images of the Apollo landing sites courtesy of the Lunar Reconnaissance Orbiter.
“Private groups, such as the original Mythbusters, have offered further debunking.
“So, men really did go to the moon, not once, but six times between 1969 and 1972.
“In the future, people will return and, presumably, visit the vicinity of the Apollo landing sites when, at last, the conspiracy theory will die a well-deserved death.”
