What do you know about the first Moon landing? That Apollo 11 commander Neil Armstrong became the first man to walk on the Moon on July 20, 1969? Or that the U.S. government, desperate to beat the Russians in the space race, filmed the lunar landings in a studio located either in Hollywood Hills or in Area 51?
Since the only evidence about the “giant leap for mankind” comes from NASA (National Aeronautics and Space Administration), the American space agency, you more than occasionally hear questions like: Did we really land on the Moon? How do we know the Moon landing wasn’t faked? What is the evidence that we actually went to the Moon? If we REALLY went to the Moon, how come we never went back?
Then there are conspiracy theories like: If there’s no atmosphere on the Moon, how can there be a breeze to blow the U.S. flag planted by Armstrong, on the Moon’s surface? If there’s no atmosphere on the Moon, where are the stars in the photos? If the moon has only one major light source (the Sun), how could the Apollo landings photos show light reflections?
In order to debunk the ‘hoax’ theories and come clean on the Moon landing, NASA recently published over 10,000 high resolution photos taken by astronauts on the surface of the Moon. Here are 10 most ‘stunning’ images that ‘prove’ the Moon Landing was real…

This crater on the Moon was photographed by the Apollo 11 astronauts during their lunar surface EVA. Dark shadows obscure much of the crater wall in the background. The object in the foreground is the Apollo 11 35mm stereo close-up camera. Image AS11-40-5954 courtesy NASA/JSC.
