Nasa admits faking Neil Armstrong moon photo

by | 26th, August 2012

THEY faked the moon landing. Nasa fudged the truth. Photos of  Neil Armstrong, the first man to walk on the moon, are rare. He had the camera, you see.  So, what we have are lots of shots of Buzz Aldrin (Moon Man No.2). And that famous portrait of  Aldrin (see left) was doctored.

Nasa explain:

The simple answer is that when Neil took the original photograph, AS11-40-5903, the top of Buzz’s OPS [antenna] was at the top edge of the field-of-view and, therefore, that the original image necessarily does not include the antenna. When the image was prepared for release for publication soon after the mission, it was cropped at the bottom and sides, and a black area was added at the top to give the released version visual balance.

They faked it.
