Operation Avalanche is a fake documentary about of the Apollo 11 moon landing, in a parallel universe of sorts where the event was faked. At that said, it’s a very real movie, which was also a real Sundance hit. And we’re proud to exclusively debut the first trailer. Really!
Between Room 237, Moonwalkers, the Flat Earth Society and other conspiracy theorists, and humankind’s general eagerness to believe anything that sounds strange enough to be true, the idea that Stanley Kubrick helped fake the Moon landings persists. And the director’s daughter is SICK OF IT.
These are the contents of a mysterious white bag found hidden in Neil Armstrong's closet: Weird looking lamps, wrenches, utility brackets, sights, and a film camera that later was identified as the one that captured the famous Apollo 11's descent on the Moon's surface. Nobody knew about it, including his widow.
Humans have landed on the moon six times, but conspiracy theorists still insist the actual number is zero. They cite bad science, misunderstandings of physics, and outright lies to try to convince you that American astronauts never set foot on our moon. Here's one more way to prove those wackos wrong.
Forty-five years ago, a man landed on the moon for the first time. Understandably, he was a little nervous. Neil Armstrong's heart raced to 160 beats per minute as the lunar vehicle touched down on the moon's surface. But as he made that great leap for mankind and walked around the moon, his heart steadied and slowed.…
This weekend marks the 45 year anniversary of the Apollo 11 mission landing the first men on the moon. Like all missions, NASA had a contingency plan. Space historian Amy Shira Teitel explains the astronauts' grim orders if a lunar lander malfunction had left Neil Armstrong and Buzz Aldrin stranded on the moon.
In 1920, rocket scientist Robert Goddard wrote up an article postulating how we could use rocket fuel to launch a ship into space — perhaps even all the way to the moon. His ideas did not meet with a warm reception in the media, where he was roundly mocked. 49 years later, Apollo 11 took-off to the moon, triggering …
China's National Space Administration has released photos taken by theYutu rover on the moon. There is also video footage of the Chang'e 3 lander's descent, and you can see in the video (below) when it comes to a full stop about 50 meters above the surface of the moon for a quick photo survey.
China's state-run television network is reporting that the unmanned Yutu lunar rover has successfully soft-landed on the moon. The rover, which touched down a few minutes after 9PM Saturday night Beijing time, is the first object to be successfully soft-landed on the moon since 1976.
On July 20, 1969, Neil Armstrong became the first man on the moon. This unassuming, metal box was actually the Westinghouse Apollo Lunar Television Camera that broadcasted his momentous first steps to millions of viewers across the world.
How far from the Lunar Module did the Apollo 11 astronauts wander after touching down on the surface of the Moon? Five meters? Twenty? How far did their "small steps" actually carry them?
The 1969 moon landing was one of humanity's most impressive achievements, but there was always a chance that things could go terribly wrong. But if the worst happened, and Neil Armstrong and Buzz Aldrin were commended to the void of space, Nixon had a stirring speech prepared, one that celebrated the spirit of…
42 years ago, American space hero Buzz Aldrin was the first man to pee on the Moon. Armstrong was the first to set foot on it but, like, whatever Neil, Buzz was the first one to take a leak.
It's blurrier than old MySpace snapshots, but it's there as expected. The Apollo Lunar Modules and the US flag left behind at the Apollo 17 landing site has been caught in a close-up image by the Lunar Reconnaissance Orbiter.
Back when Norman Rockwell ruled Saturday evenings, Adobe wasn't even a gleam in some nerd's eye, but a new book shows that the painter was, nevertheless, a photoshop god.
This just in: The moon landings were not faked. This may not seem like news to you, but to readers of two Bangladeshi newspapers, it's the subject of a surprise apology. Blame a lack of fact-checkers... and fake news sources.
That Sunday, Armstrong, Aldrin, and Collins completed President Kennedy's plan to put a man on the Moon before the decade was over. 400,000 people and 20,000 companies and institutions worked in the project, putting together insanely great talent, knowledge, and ingenuity to achieve what most thought was impossible.
Speaking at a Washington lecture over the weekend, Apollo 11 crewmembers Buzz Aldrin and Michael Collins expressed concern about NASA focusing too much on past accomplishments. That is to say, they believe we should focus our efforts on Mars.
