Once someone has embraced the moon landing hoax conspiracy it can be hard to change their mind. More often than not it’s arguments concerning the Van Allen radiation belts and tiny photographic cross-hairs that convince people that the moon landings were faked. What makes these arguments so convincing? Should they be believed? In the season finale Sebastian evaluates these claims and even speaks to someone who worked on the Apollo missions. Can we finally put this conspiracy theory to rest? Tune in and find out how radiation donuts, golf balls on the moon, and Neil Armstrong’s love of hobbits all play a role in the story.

Notes:

  • Contains the fascinating prospect of a The Hobbit inspiration for Armstrong’s ‘One small step’ line; but then sadly knocks it down. But what a TWIL that Armstrong named his retirement home Rivendell.
  • I think it really hammers in the points I would myself use to question moon landing conspiracies – when that many people were involved, how is it that a single one didn’t leak the truth, and that every one of them maintained the coverup for fifty years? And why fake five landings, and one landing gone wrong?
  • “The Soviets were monitoring it too and they never debunked it either.” “They must have been in on it too! ILLUMINATI NEW WORLD ORDER!”
  • I also got to learn about the reflectors left on the moon and how lasers are still bouncing off them. So even the Japanese space agency must be in on the conspiracy. I mean, clearly.
  • This slightly nudges Foucault’s Pendulum higher on my reread queue.
