'MythBusters' Could Debunk Apollo Conspiracy Theory with Their Own Moon Landing (VIDEO)

by Jeremy Taylor, posted Apr 12th 2011 9:15AM
'Mythbusters' on 'Colbert Report'When 'MythBusters' duo Adam Savage and Jamie Hyneman visited 'The Colbert Report' (weekdays, 11:30PM ET on Comedy Central), Stephen Colbert asked if there was any myth they would like to debunk but can't do so on their long-running Discovery Channel show.

"Well, we did a whole episode on busting the conspiracy theory that the moon landing was faked, and there are some people who are still unconvinced," Savage answered. "So we would love to -- if time, money were no object -- build a spaceship, go to the moon and come back with a piece of Apollo hardware -- all in one take."

Here's footage of Stephen Colbert covering the moon landing

I know, the moon landing anniversary has come and gone, but here's one more clip.

If you didn't realize it, Stephen Colbert also covered the historic event on July 20, 1969. Well, in a way. I'm assuming that this is probably a little more true-to-life than a lot people might realize, since Colbert was into this stuff when he was young and actually does have a soft spot for Nixon. The kid they have playing him is pretty funny.

On the 40th anniversary of Apollo 11, David Gregory combed his hair

by Bob Sassone, posted Jul 21st 2009 5:25PM
This isn't one of those "TV people are so vain!" posts. If you're on television you have to make sure your hair is OK and you have makeup on and all that. I bet even Walter Cronkite wanted to make sure he picked out the right tie in the morning. So this post of David Gregory combing his hair in the middle of a Today story about the moon landing is here not to dump on Gregory but because it's an odd, random tech glitch.

We should follow the example set by Space: 1999

by Bob Sassone, posted Jul 20th 2009 5:31PM
Should we go to Mars next or go back to the moon? That's one of the debates that's going on now as the space shuttle program nears its end (in 2010). According to Space: 1999 and UFO, we should definitely make a base on the moon. That way we can wear groovy outfits, fire lasers, and listen to swingin' music (and possibly be able to turn into cats).

TCM to celebrate the 40th anniversary of the moon landing

TCMThis is one of the many reasons I love Turner Classic Movies.

They're celebrating the 40th anniversary of the moon landing on Monday, July 20 with classic, revered movies you'd expect, like The Right Stuff and From The Earth To The Moon, but they also have the sense of humor to also show They Came From Beyond Space, a ridiculous (but entertaining), low-budget 60s sci-fi movie about aliens who come to take over Earth but can't control one scientist because he has a metal plate in his head.

Here's the full schedule for the all-day TCM marathon.

Mythbusters set to bust moon landing hoax myths

by Brad Trechak, posted Mar 14th 2008 9:42AM
MythbustersMythbusters on the Discovery Channel will be airing a special about the "hoax" of the original Moon landing. I guess they're going to determine if the 1969 Apollo mission happened or not.

The team of Kari, Grant, and Tori went to the Marshall Space Flight Center to use a vacuum chamber. While there, they will be recreating Dave Scott's famous hammer and feather drop from the Apollo 15 mission.

National Geographic Channel goes Behind the Mysteries

by Adam Finley, posted Jan 10th 2007 8:01AM

moonNational Geographic asks: were the moon landings faked?

I respond: No, no they were not.

However, if you want a little more substance to your answer, the National Geographic Channel is airing a six-part Behind the Mysteries airing January 23 through 25. The episodes will look into the aforementioned claims about the moon landings and ancient astronauts, Roswell, the possibilities of alien contact, life on Mars and the mystery of the Bermuda Triangle. The dates and times for the episodes are:

  • January 23 at 9pm: Roswell
  • January 23 at 10pm: Alien Contact
  • January 24 at 9pm: Life on Mars
  • January 24 at 10pm: Conspiracy Moon Landing
  • January 25 at 9pm: Ancient Astronauts
  • January 25 at 10pm: Bermuda Triangle

I don't pretend to have all the answers, but I do know that ancient astronauts did in fact exist. I've provided a video that proves this, after the jump. Only click ahead if you're prepared for the truth.

Neil Armstrong: what he really said

by Adam Finley, posted Oct 1st 2006 1:02PM
neil armstrongWe all know the famous words astronaut Neil Armstrong uttered when he first set foot on the surface of the moon: "That's one small step for man, one giant leap for mankind." That quote has been burned into our collective conscience for years, but if you think about it, it doesn't make a lot of sense. Armstrong has always insisted that he said, "That's one small step for A man, one giant leap for mankind," and a recent analysis of the audio by an Australian computer programmer may have finally validated Armstrong's claim. Peter Shann Ford studied a graphical representation of the quote, and found evidence that the elusive "A" was transmitted to NASA. Hell, even without the "A" that's still a damn good quote from the first person to ever step onto the surface of the moon. I'm sure if it were me it would just be a lot of screaming and crying.
