Formula one racing driver Lewis Hamilton, and five-time World Champion for Mercedes-AMG Petronas, asked an astronaut if the moon landings were faked.
In the US 21m people believe the moon landings were faked by NASA, telescopes based at NASA clearly show the flags left by the astronauts from the Apollo 11 mission.
Hamilton asked astronaut Doug Hubley if the moon landings on 20 July 1969 were faked.
He said, “I guess it’s a touchy point, but the big question is … there’s the theories that you didn’t land on the moon. So… why would people have that theory?
Apollo 11 was the first manned mission to land on the moon in 1969, astronauts Neil Armstrong and Buzz Aldrin explored the lunar surface on foot, and Michael Collins piloted the Apollo 11 orbiter around the moon.
For the last 50-years since the astronauts landed on the lunar surface, conspiracy theorists have argued the landing was faked.
Since 1969 to 1972 there were six manned missions to the Moon and numerous un-manned landings since then, but with no soft landingswere made from 22 August 1976 until 14 December 2013.
