We Recreated The Moon Landing To See If It Really Happened
Fifty years after Star Trek debuted on TV, Star Trek: Axanar was made by everyday people to much higher standards. So it only makes sense that everyday people could recreate the moon landing with the latest movie sets and video effects, right? Or maybe it’s not so easy.
Why do people still have doubts that the moon landing really happened? Most;y because it was such an amazing accomplishment. And because the people that populate the internet tend to be too young to remember it. That same internet feeds conspiracy theories about everything being either fake or controlled behind the scenes. The truth is that we had the technology to go to the moon in 1969, but we didn’t have the technology necessary to fake it. (Thanks, Ricky Sans!)
