Space Conspiracy Theories Apollo Moon Landings Faked? . Twelve NASA astronauts walked on the moon between 1969 and 1972, In the decades since Apollo 11 astronauts first set foot on the moon, Why are there no stars in the sky in the moonwalkers' photos? Why are the U.S. flags fluttering on the surface? Why do you see footprints in the pictures, but no marks from the lunar modules that landed there? The answers to those questions are simpler than you may think. There are no stars in the sky for the same reason you don't see stars during the day on Earth: The bright glow of daylight on the surface washes them out. U.S. flags planted into the lunar soil had metal rods sewn in them to appear as though they were moving. Without these wires, the flag would have hung straight down, making for a pretty lackluster photo prop. And the lunar modules, though heavier, didn't put prominent marks in the surface in some places because their mass was more evenly distributed than the astronauts' weight was in their boots. The Flat Earth Society argue that the horizon is always at eye level, which they say would not be possible if the Earth were round. They say there is no full movie of the Earth rotating from spac e which is not true, as NASA has published multiple videos taken from satellites, including a live video of Earth

from the ISS, which orbits our planet 16 times per day. One way of demonstrating to yourself that the Earth is round is to consider how orbits of satellites work. Satellites constantly "fall" around the Earth as they are pulled around by our planet's gravity; they just need to be traveling fast enough at a high enough altitude to not slam into the atmosphere. Or, you can look at the amazing pictures taken by astronauts at the ISS. Flat Earth Alien research is happening at Area 51. Area 51 hoax, claims that aliens and their technology recovered from crashed flying saucers are being studied secretly at a

classified military base about 80 miles (130 kilometers) northwest of Las Vegas in the Nevada desert. Some people in the area around the base claim that they have seen strange flights out of this area. The U.S. government has acknowledged its existence A part of Edwards Air Force Base, the area was a known location for high-technology airplane flights in the 1960s and 1970s. UFO sightings reported in the area were indeed unidentified objects, but only because the planes were top-secret not because they were flown by aliens. There is a face on Mars In 1976, NASA's Viking 1 spacecraft took a picture of what appeared to be a face on Mars. Immediately, some people said there must have been aliens

on the Red Planet that left that face behind as evidence of their existence. NASA, however, pointed out that the suspected face is really just a pile of rocks casting shadows that resemble face-like features. NASA followed up with better-resolution pictures taken from the Mars Reconnaissance Orbiter and the Mars Global Surveyor in 1998 and 2001, respectively. These new images made it quite clear that the "face on Mars" is nothing more than a trick of light and shadows on a completely normal Martian mound. With NASA's Opportunity and Curiosity rovers regularly taking pictures of the Martian surface, viewers have the chance to check

out what they're doing in almost real time. NASA puts the raw images online for the public to see. But over the years, some weird shapes have cropped up. In 2008, for example, the Opportunity rover appeared to photograph a female figure. Other photos have shown things shaped like animals, spoons or other items. You can imagine that, with all of the rocks available on Mars, some of them would happen to look like familiar objects. In fact, the human brain tends to perceive meaningful images in random patterns a phenomenon known as pareidolia. When evaluating the claims, consider that the Martian environment is extremely harsh to life as we know it; the surface is baked with radiation, the "air" is mostly carbon dioxide and there's not much atmospheric pressure.

There is a ______ on Mars! NASA can travel faster than light. The EmDrive has created years of speculation, with some breathlessly saying NASA must be on the verge of breaking the famed barrier. In reality, NASA is downplaying the reports. The engine in question is a prototype that is producing some interesting results, such as appearing to create thrust when there was no reason for this to happen and thereby violating Newton's Third Law of Motion. That said, NASA has not yet

verified the results from these An asteroid is about to crash into Earth. This recurring rumor claims that a threatening "doomsday" asteroid is about to slam into our planet. NASA and a network of monitoring telescopes across the world are cataloging all known asteroids wider than 459 feet (140 meters) across in line with a 2005 congressional mandat e . (Smaller asteroids, if

Climate change isn't real. Earth is on an abnormal warming trend. Arctic ice is melting, the sea level is rising and temperatures are going to extremes in many locations around the world. While there are many components of climate change, the fact that humans have contributed to it is indisputable . Temperature graphs show that the climate has not warmed this much, this quickly in all of Earth's

UFO was caught "refueling" at the sun. NASA has a fleet of sun-gazing spacecraft that keep an eye on space weather, especially during solar eruptions. In 2012, telescopic images appeared to show something in the shadows. On YouTube, some viewers said this could be a UFO that was refueling by using the solar plasma. However, NASA pointed out that the feature is actually something call ed a "prominence ," which has cooler and denser plasma than the outer atmosphere of the sun, or the

corona. Scientists are still trying Zero-gravity day will make you weightless. In late 2014 and early 2015, a widely shared story claimed that on Jan. 4, 2015, everyone on Earth would experien ce weightlessness due to a rare alignment of the planets. A doctored image of a purported tweet from NASA's Twitter account that went around on social media fooled a lot of people into believing the hoax. But, of course, nobody floated off the surface of Earth that day. Earth's gravity is too strong for people to become weightless. The

only way to experience weightlessness without going to space is to ride aboard a plane that performs parabolas, with Earth will go dark for two weeks. In July 2015, a website called "NewsWatch33" claimed that Earth would have 15 days of complete darkness that year. The website, is actually a fake news site As we all know, Earth did not actually experience that much darkness that year. (The article claimed that the darkness was partly due to

a Jupiter-Venus conjunction, which actually took place more than 500 million miles The moon will turn green. In spring 2016, there was a rumor that the moon would turn green because several planets had aligned and caused an eerie glow. This was supposed to happen on April 20 and again on May 29 for the first time since 1596 The moon never actually turned green, although it can appear red during a lunar eclipse, when the moon passes through Earth's shadow. Columnist Joe Rao debunked this green-moon myth.

He pointed out that a full moon actually took place on April 22, 2016, and speculated that the April 20 date of the "green moon" might have to do with "National Weed Day," known as 4/20. Saturn's hexagon is alien technology. Saturn's hexagon was first spotted when NASA's Voyager spacecraft flew by the giant, ringed planet in 1980. The bizarre, six-sided structure on the round planet's north pole caused quite the stir, because straight lines and polygons are not so common in nature. Immediately after the Voyager

returned its first images of Saturn's strange feature, even stranger theories arose to explain it, including that it was somehow related to alien technology, or perhaps even was a gateway to hell. The There is a killer planet known as "Nibiru." Conspiracy theorists say another dangerous planet is Nibiru, which was first mentioned in the 1976 book " The Twelfth Planet," by Zecharia Sitchin. In the book, Sitchin translated ancient Sumerian cuneiform and claimed that the text is proof of a planet beyond Neptune called Nibiru that orbits the sun every 3,600 years. Years later, self-proclaimed psychic Nancy

Lieder claimed to have communicated with extraterrestrials who said Nibiru would collide with Earth in 2003. When that didn't happen, the date was moved to 2012 (and linked, of course, with the 2012 doomsday predictions). Of course, the collision never occurred, the world didn't end in 2012 and no astronomer has ever found a planet on a collision course Planet Nine will kill us. In April 2016, the New York Post tweeted, "A newly discovered planet could destroy Earth as soon as this month." The newspaper was referring to Planet Nine, a theoretical planet at the edge of the solar system. An

accompanying video also claimed that the new planet would be throwing all sorts of asteroids and comets at Earth, which would supposedly end up pummeling our planet. Although the planet's existence has not been confirmed, astronomers are actively looking for it to
