Moon landing conspiracy theorist reckons key missing detail proves ‘hoax’

Nutty conspiracy theorists who believe the moon landings were faked reckon one photograph gives it all away.

Between July 20, 1969 and December 14, 1972 six NASA missions landed a total of 12 men on the moon, starting with Neil Armstrong and Buzz Aldrin on Apollo 11 and ending with Gene Cernan, Jack Schmitt and Ronald Evans on Apollo 17.

At least, that's what NASA wants you to think according to conspiracy theorists.

Disbelievers argue that NASA faked the landings in a desperate bid to win the Space Race, in the context of the Cold War, staging landings and recording footage down on Earth.

Now they reckon an image from the 1972 Apollo 17 landing evidences their theory.

In a video titled "Reflection in a Visor. Where’s the reflection of the camera taking the photo?", YouTuber Streetcap1 claims that a "stagehand" from someone not wearing a spacesuit can be seen.

The narrator says: “You can see some sort of, it looks like a man, back in the early ’70s, long hair, wearing some sort of waistcoat-type thing… and a shadow of that figure, presumably.

“Where’s this guy’s space suit?”

Strangely – to us and most people in the comments section – it just appears to be a bloke wearing a spacesuit, and it's incredibly hard to interpret it any other way.

Still, that did not stop Streetcap1 analysing it for four minutes in a video that has somehow been viewed nearly three million times.

One person in the comments section said: "Sure looks like an astronaut to me. The shadow shows the backpack as well."

“To me it clearly looks like another astronaut with the white, bulky spacesuit. You can see that he has both arms slightly stretched forward and the shadow shows the bulkiness of the spacesuit, including the life support on his back,” another commented.

A third said: "All I can see is an astronaut being distorted by the curved reflection on the helmet. You could say it looks like anything, it could be a space alien.

"But its not… It's just an astronaut."
