It has been half a century since the Apollo 11 Moon landing, and there are so many people out there that still believe that it didn’t happen. Many conspiracy theories are present since the 1970s, and they are more popular than ever.
The most common theory is that the director Stanley Kubrick has helped NASA to fake all the historical footage of the six Moon landings.
However, if we are to think about it, would have been possible to do that with the technology that was available at those times? We believe it would have been impossible to fake the footage.
Here’s an interesting theory
The moon landings were filmed in a TV studio
As you probably know, there are two different ways to capture moving images – through film and through video. The film represents strips of photographic material in which a series of images are exposed. The video depicts a method of recording different medium, like the moving magnetic tape. With the help of a video, you can also broadcast to a television. A typical motion picture records images at 24 frames per second. When it comes to broadcast television, we are talking about either 24 or 30 frames. It depends on where you are in the world.
If we take into account the idea that the Moon landings were taped in a TV studio, then they need to be 30 frames per second, which was standard at that time.
The first Moon landing was recorded at ten frames per second in SSTV – Slow Scan television. And it was filmed with a special camera.
But that is not all. It’s been said that the Apollo special camera was used in a studio, then it was slowed down to make it look like there was less gravity.
