- Some people believe in the conspiracy theory that the moon landing was faked. Do you think this is possible? Why or why not?
In 1969, astronauts Neil Armstrong and Buzz Aldrin became the first humans to walk on the moon. The decision to send astronauts to the moon was made in 1961, when U.S. President John F. Kennedy pledged to accomplish this before the end of the decade. Kennedy set this goal because of the rivalry between the U.S. and the Soviet Union at the time. The Soviet Union had already made advancements in space travel, such as sending the first unmanned probe to the moon, and sending the first human to space. The U.S. wanted to prove that they were capable of space travel as well. Over eight years, the National Aeronautics and Space Administration (NASA) prepared and launched 11 missions that would lead to the moon landing. The final mission took place on July 20th, 1969. Armstrong was the first of the two astronauts to walk on the moon, where he said the famous quote: “That’s one small step for a man, one giant leap for mankind.”

It’s possible to be true or false but I don’t think it’s so important at this time because it’s caused to make so many new ideas which create lots of spacecrafts, spaceporbes, spacestations, atc that help us to discover mysterious of the universe now and humans will travel between planets of the solar system easily and conveniently in future.
It was a great advancement which lead us to a new world.
