Sibrel believes that there were numerous insurmountable scientific and technical problems which made it improbable that men could land on the moon and return to Earth safely. Further, he believes that certain anomalies and inconsistencies in NASA’s records of the landings point to a hoax, and that the space race was actually a race to develop armaments, citing a 95 percent similarity between the technologies that allowed the launch of intercontinental ballistic missiles and the launch of the Saturn V rockets.

Bart Sibrel claims that NASA perpetrated a fraud, because of the perception that if the United States could put a man on the moon before the Soviet Union did it would be a major victory in the Cold War, since the Soviets had been the first to achieve a successful space launch (Sputnik in 1957), the first manned space flight (Vostok 1 in 1961), and the first spacewalk (Voskhod 2 in 1965).

Bart Sibrel also claims that the life-threatening events that occurred during the Apollo 13 mission were actually manufactured by the government to force people to pay attention to the space program. He suggests that this is proven by the claim that a number of viewers called the television networks complaining that coverage of the second lunar mission, Apollo 12, was interrupting repeats of the I Love Lucy program, saying: “it became clear that for the taxpayers, once was enough”.

The 47-minute documentary primarily focuses on the Van Allen belts, areas of intense radiation circling the Earth, as a major reason that Sibrel believes it was impossible for a manned spacecraft to land on the moon.

    My god… there is still any retarded out there that thinks that this was a hoax?!!
    with the collaboration of Russia? lol…


    • Stringmaster says:

      Alex, there are alot of us out here. because it WAS a hoax. i believe we’ve been by now, but the fact remains that the 1969 moon landing was not real.
      And what do you mean, with the collaboration with russia? they had nothing to do with our side of the space race. they accomplished all they claimed!, thats why we had to beat them. (no matter how hoaxfully)
      i have evidence i KNOW would change your mind. if you are interested, let me know ;)

        I would love to see your evidence that the moon landings were a hoax. Since I am aware that no such evidence exists, (only speculation) you could never convince me. If you want to chase conspiracy theories, look at the assassination of JFK, or 9 11. Unlike the moon landings, these topics have plenty of real evidence. By the way, check out the most recent pictures of the landing sites taken by latest moon orbitor. Since there is no atmosphere on the moon, even their tracks are well preserved. I have no doubt you will think those are fake as well, so I guess people will just have to choose for themselves, what they want to believe. One thing for certain. Elderly men don’t punch people in the face for being called a fraud, unless they strapped 5 million pounds of high explosive to their ass, and took the chances they did!

          “I would love to see your evidence…. …..you could never convince me.”
          That’s quite an open mind ye got there.

          Science should not be followed like a cult; the human mind is not stupid; we have a bulb that always clicks, flickering that nagging question– even a person brainwashed all his life to a religion can suddenly wake up and see the REAL LIGHT. Don’t believe just because they said so… remember that men have this affinity bad habit of lying, they aren’t ashamed of it. Curiosity is natural— is neither conspiracy or foolishness; just natural, and whether you like it or not… sometimes it leads to somber truths.

    • Earth says:

      You sound like a religious lunatic that probably believes that Moses spread an ocean apart with his tiny brown hands, trying to cross to the other side of a country thousands of people from slavery. Should we take the bible seriously too?

  2. Lee says:

    Stringmaster I think you will find that the kind of person that believes that a man could be killed then come back to life then physically ascend to the sky. Will believe almost anything.
    I’m with you on this one I feel that the American space race was nothing more than a ploy to dupe the then Russian government into spending lots of money the country could not afford.

    “Sibrel was punched in the face by Buzz Aldrin after Sibrel confronted Aldrin with his theories while accusing the former astronaut of being “a coward, and a liar, and a thief”. Sibrel tried to press charges against Aldrin but the case was thrown out of court when the judge ruled that Aldrin was within his rights given Sibrel’s invasive and aggressive behavior.”

    Wtg Buzz!!!

    Where to even begin. First, the only level of radiation capable of killing men in space (short term) would come from the sun in the form of a coronal mass ejection. This actually happened in the summer of 1972, between flights Apollo 16 and 17. (last flights to the moon) Had either of these flights occured then, the crews would have died almost instantly. The last time the planet Earth itself was hit like this was in 1864. The only electronics at this time was the telegraph. It fried the lines and started fires around the world. If it hit us today, it would knock us back to the stone age, even with the protection of the earth’s electromagnetic field.
    Secondly, one does not need lead to block radiation. Polyethylene(plastic) and water itself are great deflectors of radiation. When the nuclear plant in Chernobyl went south, the number of people who died were less than 50. One man, who was at ground zero, suffered dearly, yet continues to live to this day.
    Man not only went to the moon, but took great risks to do it. Furthemore, the only reason that the Americans beat the Russians to the moon, was simply because Russia’s space program went south after their chief designer Segei Korolev died from a botched hemorhoid operation. If you want to chase conspiracy theories, look at the assassination of JFK or 9 11. Unlike the stupidity put forth in this documentary, these other topics have real evidence, unlike the unscientific speculation/supposition presented in this documentary. If people don’t believe the latest phographs showing the landing sites from Nasa’s latest orbitor, just ask yourself why an elderly man (Buzz Aldrin) would punch a man in the face for calling him a fraud? I know if I strapped 5 million pounds of high explosive to my rearend, and flew to, and walked on the moon, my reaction woulld be identical. (the ultimate insult to one’s life achievements!)

    • Truman Golden says:

      LOL, you should become comedian instead of talking science…”where to even begin…” you are funny..NOT!

  5. Jimbo says:

    I usually like these types of films. However, this was pure crap. Poorly made and loose with the facts. Don’t waste your time on this one.

  6. Michael Kinsey says:

    Thank you, thank you. I fought against Vietnam, and was in Portsmith Federal Prison when this was going on, This lie. the unborn are not in possion of full human rights, due to the human spirit within them. And again 911 false flag. This truth sets me free. Baby John Doe 1709. Truth is freedom. Thank you, MLK would say, this documentary is Just.

  7. Michael Kinsey says:

    I was discharged with a BCD, refusing Vietnam service.

    What is up with humanity?! I see a few of you that actually understand REAL hard science and the concept of logic. You can aim a cheap ass telescope up at the moon and SEE the traces of ALL the moon landings! Get some books! Read you dumb ass morons! Of course, as i said, i am not referring to ALL of you. Only the few among you that refuse to join the present and remove your head from ass! Here is a number of REAL science facts for those of you who obviously need them…
    Yes the Van Allen Belt IS deadly, but the amount of time required to go through them by spacecraft that we HAVE launched would not give a lethal dose of radiation! At most it would cause nausea and a little sickness. But no where NEAR fatal!
    The remnants of ALL our missions are STILL there! You can use a telescope to find them! And no i am not going to give you the coordinates as i feel you might learn something if you have to READ to find them out!
    And if i sound upset, your right, i am!! It is you individuals that still cling to your invisible woo woo man in the sky and your mystical belief systems that are holding down humanity as a whole! This video is just a symptom of the utter idiocy you propogate.
    Bah! I do not know why i waste my voice on you. All you will do is think that i am some sort of government shill or you will label me as a disinfo agent. Or you will come back with some stupid religious comeback. The few of you that agrree with me i commend, as it is YOU who will move this planet forward. Only once we are free of this backwards illogical thinking will we truly be able to advance to the level we were meant to.

    • Earth says:

      Moira, lol! What is up with humanity? the moment you typed “pick some books and read” followed by the insults I lost ya’…. you sound like those religious nuts that can claim the same by presenting the bible or koran as evidence for all the occurrences that happened on earth and state it as “facts” —just because is written and read; it doesn’t mean is real or factual. And no– the planet will not move forward, as the planet couldn’t give two shits about what humans do or don’t do. If the space program is such an advancement to humanity then how come humans regressive mentality hasn’t changed over the years: wars aren’t over, famines still thrive around the world, poverty is not obsolete, equality is barely there, and the fact that male behavior is still practically the same since from the time of cavemen— their greedy, sexist, pervasive, oppressive, and a control freak nature is the biggest major problem for humanity to actually move forward as an advance species. If all the aforementioned would be the priority of humanity to resolve— we wouldn’t be here questioning moon landings and stupid stuff when there are MAJOR problems to resolve within ourselves.

    We did not even have remote control tv in the 1960`s and in 1980 when we first got a computer in our office it was huge and housed in a sterile environment in it`s own room. Yet we are told they descended onto the surface of the moon using a computer for guidance and control. I have seen the so-called photos of the left-behind moon landers etc. and quite honestly they are a joke and you can see NOTHING ! NASA now say they have lost all the original footage on the moon and also the plans etc for the wonderful ( sarcasm , it never really worked ) Saturn V rocket were destroyed so they would have to start from scratch and it will take 15 years to be able to return to the moon starting from now . Why ? Are we to believe they did it in 8 years with the technology of the 1960`s ( all now lost and forgotten by the way ) but it would take at least twice the time now ? I maybe stupid but I don`t think so but people have a real problem once they accept it as gospel that it may not be and was very cleverly done at that time. It was the height of the Cold War , propaganda was rife and the Russians could easily be kept quiet either by threat or some secret advantageous trade deals .
    Rather than hoax it was more acrurately be described as mass deception and let`s face it , it worked brilliantly for many years . I was born in 1952 and didn`t doubt it for a second until round about 15 years ago when more information became available . If you still believe it fair enough but I sure don`t and my opinion is based on science with an open mind.

  10. Truman Golden says:

    keep preaching the truth against that satanic vile lie.

  11. Buck Nuck says:

    Yea they sure did. They recreated intersecting angles in a controlled studio environment.

    So they proved it was faked? Trying taking a look outside sometime.

  12. Gerry Nemeth says:

    Bart Sibrel….you should be ashamed of yourself.
