NASA APOLOGIZES FOR FAKING THE MOON LANDING

NASA confirmed what had generally been thought to be a wild conspiracy with little basis in fact: That the July 20, 1969 moon landing of Apollo 11 astronauts was faked. After starting with a brief but ambiguous “We’re sorry” tweet on the official @NASA Twitter account, the following shocking facts were revealed via NASA’s group LinkedIn blog:

  • The surface of the moon as viewed by television viewers worldwide in 1969 was actually a Van Nuys, California soundstage specifically built for the fake mission but later sold to NBC which used it for several long running series, including The Office and Caroline in the City.
  • Though Buzz Aldrin, Neil Armstrong, and Michael Collins were indeed astronauts and did lead other actual missions, only Armstrong actually participated in the fake mission, having successfully auditioned for the part. The roles of Aldrin and Collins were played by the heavily disguised actors Abe Vigoda and (the recently deceased) Gene Wilder
  • Armstrong’s lack of acting chops led to a mistake that somehow become the “Mission’s” signature moment. The NASA tweets mentioned that the script read “One small step for A MAN. One giant leap for mankind” (emphasis added). The words “man” and “mankind” – in the context of the line as Armstrong uttered it – were synonymous and saying them both made no sense in an attempt to contrast “step” and “leap.”
  • During rehearsals, the fake mission’s director – a then-26 year old Martin Scorcese – wanted to fire Armstrong and replace him with his friend Harvey Keitel, who happened to be in the L.A. area for a wedding. The figurehead behind the whole operation – Vice-President Spiro Agnew refused, saying Armstrong’s actual presence was needed and would help make it all seem real.
  • Stanley Kubrick, long rumored to be the director of the fake landing, was called by Agnew in advance of the operation (he was told it was a military film not a NASA gig). But he wasn’t being asked to direct – his price tag was too high. He was being asked to recommend a young hotshot director. Kubrick recommended Brian DePalma but added that Scorcese would be serviceable as well.
  • The graininess of the film footage wasn’t the result of moon dust and atmospheric conditions. It was done with Elmer’s glue and some sand from a Van Nuys baseball field.
  • Finally, NASA added – in a final shockingtweet that raises more questions than it answered – that Apollo 8in December of 1968 actually did land on the moon, only they hadn’t planned to and didn’t have filming equipment

What next? Was the Hindenburg Disaster staged? Did Amelia Earhart actually reach her destination? Did Bush beat Gore only because an entire Florida town was counted twice? All of it seems a little more possible today.
