Many agree that the Apollo moon-landing conspiracy theory was initially seeded in 1974 with the self-publication of William Kaysing’s magnum opus, We Never Went To The Moon. Despite possessing a BA in English, Kaysing was hardly a crafty wordsmith and had said many moronic things during his life as a conspiracy theorist. But of all the dumb things he has said, my favourite would have to be what he said during an interview for a pro-NASA documentary called The Truth Behind the Moon Landings. What he said was that he did not believe the astronauts were in the command capsule at launch. A “magician act” was performed with the astronauts going up the gantry elevator and then came right back down. In other words, NASA did not want to risk the lives of the astronauts should the Saturn V blow up. Yup, he really said that. So let’s say the Saturn V is destroyed on its way up and all spectators and television viewers are shocked and horrified. But the astronauts were never even inside the command capsule. Which means they must now make 1 of 2 decisions: either accept doctor-assisted suicide or live out the rest of their existence in a secret underground bunker. But hey, it’s all for the pride of a nation, right?
