Kubrick, Nixon and the man in the moon.


Celebrating the 40th anniversary of the Apollo 11 lunar landing either means to celebrate a giant leap for mankind or to celebrate a hoax. Fact is: we simply don’t know the truth and so people tend to fall in three belief groups. The first accepts that NASA successfully landed on the moon six times and that 12 humans have actually walked on the surface of the moon.

Group number two, though far smaller, says that we never went to the moon and that the entire thing was faked. But what about the third one? The third group falls somewhere in between and postulates that humans did go to the moon but what we saw on TV and in photographs was completely hoaxed.

It was more important that astronauts be seen to be walking on the moon than actually walk on the moon and so the Nixon administration wanted to stage the moon landing in advance. Images of Neil Armstrong’s walk on the moon on July 20, 1969 were shown to the world through the lens of master film-maker Stanley Kubrick and shot on the soundstage of Kubrick’s landmark film, 2001: A Space Odyssey. True or untrue?

After all, either the camera or the government is lying, or maybe both?
It’s not easy to tell and so the conspiracy continues.
