What if Neil Armstrong’s famed moon landing in 1969 was a lie – one of the biggest lies ever told? A major piece of “evidence” seems to suggest that America’s lunar conquest was a hoax. People have noticed that Neil Armstrong’s space boots do not match his footprints on the moon.

Iconic Moon Landing Outfit

To date, Neil Armstrong’s iconic moon landing outfit is one of the most attractive treasures housed at the Smithsonian Museum. The outfit stands tall among the multitude of aviation and space artifacts in the Washington DC museum.

Armstrong's Suit Is A "Key Part" Of The Landing

According to the National Air and Space Museum, Armstrong’s spacesuit is a “key part” of “one of the single greatest achievements in the history of mankind.”

The Material Of The Suit

The suits, which are made from non-flammable material and include a liquid cooling garment, were designed to provide relative comfort for 115 hours.

The Boots Were Attention-Grabbing

The white suit, which also came with gloves and attached helmets, can serve for 14 days in a pressure-free mode. But it was the boots that caught the most attention.

The Boot's Soles Are Different From The Boots At The Smithsonian

The soles of the boots at the Smithsonian Museum are markedly different from those of Neil Armstrong and his landing partner, Buzz Aldrin’s footprints on the moon. A photo of Armstrong’s footprint threads is horizontal and nothing like the smooth and plain soles of the boots in the museum.

No Wind Can Blow The Footprints Away

Just in case you are wondering why the astronaut’s lunar footprints would remain the same, listen to NASA’s explanation. “The first footprints on the moon will be there for a million years. There is no wind to blow them away.” In contrast to the Earth, the Moon doesn’t have an atmosphere and so, there are no winds to wipe them off.

Side-By-Side Comparison

The discrepancies between thread patterns cast a massive shadow of doubt on the first-ever moon landing. Conspiracy theorists hung on this piece of “evidence” to show that the moon landings were a hoax. On social media, multiple posts published the ‘huge discovery,’ placing the boots side by side.

It All Comes Back To The Boots...

But these conspiracy theories have fallen flat on their faces. Superior arguments and evidence have since shown that indeed, the moon landings of 1969 and 1972 happened. So what about the boots?

Their Boots Shielded Them From Solar Radiation

Well, Armstrong and his team wore the Smithsonian Museum suits but with additional gear, which included overshoes with threaded soles. The soles were to provide traction on the moon’s surface and shield the astronauts from solar radiation.

Photos Showed Multiple Footprints Of Threaded Shoe Soles

Also, the threaded footprint under contention was from Buzz Aldrin and not Armstrong, as widely speculated. Plus, photos of the moon landing showed multiple footprints of threaded shoe soles.

The Overshoes Were Left Behind, Along With Other Items

These overshoes never made it back to the Earth. They were left behind, along with nearly 100 other items, such as TV lenses, tools, and camera equipment. The astronauts had to sacrifice these items for lunar samples to meet with weight requirements for the spaceship.

Addressing The Conspiracy Theories

Yet, moon landing deniers, such as the late Bill Kaysing, stuck to their guns. Dr. Rick Fienberg, an expert in astronomy and press officer of the American Astronomical Society, has left a huge hole in the conspiracy theories with these words.

“About 400,000 scientists, engineers, technologists, mechanists, electricians, worked on the Apollo program…how can you feel that 400,000 people will just keep their mouths shut for 50 years?” That’s ‘implausible,’ he declared.
