Shout out to https://nobodysreadingme.wordpress.com/2019/07/12/how-its-nearly-fifty-years-since-apollo-11/ for prompting this ponder. As nobodysreadingme points out – you can’t do a cover-up on this scale. A casual observation beyond reproach, he’s right – you can’t do a cover-up on this scale.
July 21, 2019 marks the 50th anniversary of Apollo 11 commander Neil Armstrong’s momentous first step on the Moon. Fifty years increasingly over shadowed by conspiracy wing-nuts. News flash – you can’t do a cover-up on this scale! For those inclined to gobble tabloid sawdust, persons swayed by internet jibber-jabber, people parroting fake Moon landing nonsense – snap out of it! You can’t do a cover-up on this scale.
What will it take to convince fake Moon landing conspiracy theorists otherwise? This video? Point by patient point analysis at the link below? Who am I kidding?
How about this? You can’t do a cover-up on this scale!
Forty six years ago today, Apollo 11 astronauts Buzz Aldrin and Neil Armstrong landed on the moon. Their tiny lunar module rested on ancient lava flows in the Sea of Tranquility. Six hours later Neil Armstrong became the first human to walk on another world. Grainy images held a breathless world captive, witness to science eclipsing fiction.
I was 9 years old. Nine years dreamily gazing at the stars, imagining possibilities and asking “what if”. That day is indelible, a moment in time responsible for cementing a sense of optimistic wonder. Effortless recollection finds me on the living room carpet. straining to comprehend barely discernible images, rivets of audio punctuation bouncing off the walls.
July 20, 1969 opened a portal to the cosmos.
