The Apollo Space Program: Astronauts or Astronots?

By Dr. John L. Reizer

On July 20, 1969, NASA’s Lunar Module (Eagle) touched down on the surface of our moon and astronaut, Neil Armstrong took one small step for man and one giant leap for mankind. Television anchor, Walter Cronkite kept Americans informed of the latest mission developments as human beings, for the first time ever, walked on the surface of a celestial body other than Earth.

But did it really happen the way we’ve been led to believe? Does the photographic record of NASA’s Apollo Program represent the truth? Did men visit the lunar surface, scoop up moon rocks, and return to Earth with those trophies?

Authors Mary Bennett and David S. Percy, in their book “Dark Moon: Apollo and the Whistle-Blowers” convincingly explain the theory that NASA faked the moon landings throughout the Apollo program because they didn’t want the public to see what was really happening on the lunar surface. They also contend that NASA had serious challenges with escaping the earth’s radiation belts and, to this day, still do. This particular obstacle has precluded manned, deep space missions from taking place and was the real reason the space shuttle missions were designed. According to Bennett and Percy, NASA’s been trying to solve the radiation problems for years during shuttle missions.

Bennett and Percy believe that the United States did manage to successfully send two astronauts to the moon that unfortunately died from radiation poisoning before completing the journey back to earth. That mission was performed in private while the faked Apollo missions were filmed in studios and later broadcast as if they were live television feeds coming from the moon. The authors say that even the people working at mission control believed the Apollo transmissions were coming from the moon. Only a few people knew the truth.

Some of the alternative theories that challenge NASA’s historical record have been addressed by the space agency. NASA officials claim that when the astronauts visited the moon, they left reflective mirrors near the landing sites and that scientists on earth have been bouncing lasers off those mirrors for 43 years.

Bennett and Percy argue that the reflective mirrors only prove that someone went to the moon. They don’t prove Apollo delivered the astronauts to the lunar surface.

In July, 2009, NASA released photographs of the supposed landing sites for each of the Apollo missions that were taken by the Lunar Reconnaissance Orbiter. Critics, that have viewed the photos, claim the images could have been digitally edited. The photos, unfortunately, have poor resolution making it hard to view important details that would positively identify the remaining portions of the lunar module’s descent stage. Critics have also questioned why NASA, with its highly sophisticated cameras, hasn’t produced close-ups of the landing sites.

In 1994, NASA’s Clementine spacecraft photographed the entire surface of the moon and, in doing so, discovered what appeared to be large artificial buildings on the lunar surface. These photographs appeared to be obfuscated by sophisticated techniques but the artificial structures were still positively identified by Steve Skipper and published on his website,

After looking at the obfuscated lunar pictures from Clementine, it’s hard for some people to trust the integrity of the photos, offered by NASA, showing the Apollo landing sites.

It’s hard to imagine that a government agency might not have been completely transparent when discussing the Apollo program with its citizens. Of course many Americans don’t buy into any conspiracy theories whatsoever. To do so would be much too painful for them. Only NASA knows for sure what transpired 43 years ago. Was it, in fact, a giant leap for mankind or just a giant lie?

    I guess I’m one of those so-called conspiracy theorists as I truly believe they were faked. Those flimsy space suits that I saw at Cape Canaveral would have never protected anyone from the radiation in the Van Allen belts. Rubbish I say. Love, Mom

    Billions of dollars three lives and hundreds of thousands of workers and you think a secret that big could be kept? So sad this is all you have to do. Hey do something like prove our prez is a phony, show us the the people who run these feed the kids,help the animal outfits lifestyles. Show us how they live while countless go hungry. I’m disabled ,show me why the gov cant (wont) give me medical I need.Now Im sure you dont have any sponsors that pay to use your websites and its a labor of love .Right? The Moon landings were the greatest we humans have ever done and its sad we have lost that want ,the want to go farther . Humans as a whole have become lazy overweight and have no wish to better humanity, Its all about me me me. so sad . The 60’s were the hardest working most devoted group of workers I have ever seen and am proud to have learned from them. If we had the want ,the drive they did we would be on Titan or Mars by now and not printing trillions to save a Bank .

      Hi Randy,

      Thanks for your comments and also for participating on I appreciate your perspective on the article I wrote.

      I do believe that there is extensive evidence that NASA has been less than truthful with the American citizens regarding Apollo. The moon is not the barren and deserted satellite we’ve been taught to believe. The Clementine photographs in 1994 have demonstrated that there are massive buildings on the lunar surface. This is not an opinion, it is a photographic fact that was obtained from official NASA catalogs. Follow the link in my article and visit

      Since NASA has kept this information out of the public domain, it is reasonable to think that the evidence demonstrating Apollo was a studio production — might be genuine. I can not say for certain because I was not there. But I can tell you that there are thousands of pieces of evidence that point to the fact that we were duped into believing that Apollo was real.

      Your opinion about Apollo doesn’t change the facts. NASA either went to the moon or they faked it, and only they know the truth about that.

      If you take the time to read, you will discover that I have absolutely zero sponsors that support this website and it is a labor of love! There are no corporate purchased opinions here. I challenge you to find one advertisement on

      If you regularly visit my website, you will discover why our government won’t pay for your medical care as well as the answers to the other questions you have asked. You and I have been given a disingenuous picture of reality and so therefore it is a shock to your nervous system when you see a glimpse of the truth. Some of us can not even recognize the truth when we see it because we have been hypnotized for so long.

      It’s not my job to prove that our president is a phony or to prove anything else. My mission is to show another perspective of the news we are regularly fed. I do this to help educate readers that want to wake up and learn about a more truthful version of reality. Hopefully, when people see a truer version of reality they will be better prepared to determine what is phony and what is genuine by themselves. Much of what people perceive as being genuine is completely phony. This does not only apply in the case of Apollo! It is especially true in medicine, politics, science, religion, history, the occult, paranormal activities, secret societies, banking and finance, education, and many other genres that make up the very fabric of our perceived reality construct.

      Do yourself a favor and read some of the articles on this website. The truth will set you free my friend!

      Best wishes,

        All the evidence Apollo was a fake can be found on this site, and it’s relevant links.

    I too grew up idolizing the efforts and accomplishments of our space agency. But, unlike Randy, I no longer believe that the Apollo program was legit. There are too many clues that were left behind in the pictures by whistle-blowers. I had an opportunity to read the book you cited in your article. It was very convincing, to say the least, and the interviews with the Kodak film company representative were very revealing.

    I think a lot of us say we want to know the truth, but react emotionally when we uncover the information and find out that it disrupts our understanding of how things truly are.

    Your article was interesting and thought provoking and I was fascinated by the moon pictures taken by the Clementine probe in 1994. That evidence was very convincing. What in heck are those huge structures doing up there on the moon?

    Keep up the good work!
