Moon landing was faked – new theory put forward using an old picture

Conspiracy theorists have long argued that moon landing was completely faked. They have been claiming that Moon landing was just a big lie and nothing more than that. They are now pointing out to an old photograph taken by an astronaut to prove that moon landing images were taken in a studio that was set to look like the moon.

The picture in question shows the Apollo 16 lunar landing mission commander, John W. Young, collecting samples from the moon’s surface using a rake and tongs. There are some large boulders and smaller rocks in the background. As per the description provided for the picture, the Lunar Roving Vehicle was parked among the field of large boulders in the background. The Apollo 16 mission took place in 1972.

According to the video uploaded on the YouTube channel UFOmania, the boulders in the picture from the Apollo 16 moon landing in 1972 are not simple rocks but rather habitat building, spaceship, and extra personnel.

While some people believe that the whole thing was staged and that the images and videos were filmed in a studio or a remote location that was adjusted to look like the moon. Some others are of the opinion that the Apollo 16 astronauts might have discovered evidence of alien life on the moon. Instead of telling the world about the discovery, they believe that NASA covered the entire matter. They edited the images and videos to remove all instances showing proof of alien life. The image may then be thought of showing one of these alien structures.

The video has been viewed almost 123,000 times. Most of the commenters on the video do not agree with the claims put forward by conspiracy theorists as they feel that the things in the background of the picture are really just rocks. Now, its all up to people to decide what they want to believe.
