Did we really land on the moon?
One of the most well known conspiracy theories also doubles as a prime example of pseudo-scientific nonsense. Although this theory was released nearly 40 years ago, many people still believe the moon landing was a hoax. Even in this day and age between 6 and 20 percent of Americans believe the moon landing was a ruse and approximately 28 percent of Russians believe so as well. Despite the countless amounts of evidence proving that astronauts did in fact land on the moon, this theory continues to live on. The theory began with the writing of Bill Kaysing's We Never Went to the Moon: America's Thirty Billion Dollar Swindle. The book was written in 1974, a time where the American public was very distrusting our their government, especially after its recent Watergate scandal. From then on, countless documentaries and books have been devoted to disproving or ratifying this bizarre claim. Despite a multitude of scientific evidence proving the landing, many people are still skeptical about the landing to this day.
