Did We Go to the Moon?

Show Archive
Date: Thursday - February 3, 2005
Host: George Noory
Guests: Marcus Allen, James McCanney

British publisher for Nexus Magazine, Marcus Allen, presented his analysis of the Apollo moon landing, which he believes may have been faked. The reason for such a hoax was "basically for propaganda," so that America could demonstrate its "technological superiority over the USSR," he explained.

Even if the trip to the moon occurred, Allen thinks the photographs supposedly taken on the lunar surface were phony. Photos taken by astronauts may have been fogged and useless, so instead images were made on the realistic simulation sets that had been used for training, he hypothesized. Further, the Hasselblad cameras used on the missions had all manual controls which would have been very difficult for the astronauts to manipulate wearing their spacesuits and armored gauntlets, he said.

What were "some of the most iconic photographs of the 20th century," surely had to be taken by professional photographers, he argued, noting all the images were correctly exposed, accurately focused and well composed (without the use of a viewfinder). In regards to the moon rocks, he suggested that Wernher Von Braun may have collected meteorites in Antarctica years earlier, and small samples of these were given out for testing.

A Fast Blast poll conducted at the end of the show (with 125 participants), found that 60% believed we went to the moon, and 40% said we did not.

McCanney Update

First half-hour guest, physicist James McCanney dispelled Internet-based rumors that he is predicting a large planetary-sized object coming our way at this time. He did note that there have been an unusually high number of comets coming in from the Southern Hemisphere, which could be an indicator of something, but "I never pick a date unless I have solid information," he said.
