William Parker Mr. Bergmann Senior English P2 Tuesday March 31 The Moon Landing Conspiracy The moon landing conspiracy is a well-known conspiracy that is shared with many theorists out there thinking all the government does is lie to us. When it was shown on news channels in 1969, a lot of skeptics thought that it was just shot in a studio in Hollywood. The videos and audio shown on news channels live showed certain things that made skeptics sure of it being filmed in a studio. The author of the website I chose for my conspiracy, Josh Fox, seems to lean more that the moon landing didn't happen. Fox has many different reasons on how the moon landing is a hoax and he doesn't go into detail on NASA's defenses on each reason. Conspiracy theorists…show more content…

The last claim of this movie involves a even more hilariously elaborate claim; If you aren’t convinced yet, Kubrick made the mysterious hotel room in the film number 237. Guess how many miles it is from here to the moon: 238,000. So divide that by a thousand and minus one, and you’ve got one airtight theory right there (Fox). I get the feel that Fox is being sarcastic but I can't be too
