What the United States and Russia accomplished by placing man in orbit has been nothing short of extraordinary. But why is it that the last three Apollo missions were abruptly cancelled soon after the Soviets gained the ability to track and monitor our spacecraft? How is it that the U.S.S.R. beat the United States in every single category of early space exploration, yet they never attempted to send a man to the moon? If it was only about firsts, then what about scientific advances and the Soviets' redirected commitment to the Space Station? [See: Wikipedia - Space Race]
Just minutes before his death, Gus Grissom twice asked, "How are we going to get to the moon if we can't talk between two (or three) buildings?" Ed White added in between the two repeated questions, "They can't hear a word you're saying." Only 5 days earlier [not "weeks" earlier, as we previously reported], on January 22nd, according to testimony from his wife Betty, Gus pulled the largest lemon he could find off their back yard tree. When Betty asked him what he was going to do with it, replied "I'm going to hang it on that spacecraft" - meaning of course the Command Module. In addition, back during the Mercury program, the hatch on Gus' self-named capsule, the Liberty Bell, blew prematurely. Son Scott Grissom, believes the the Apollo 1 crew was murdered, and so does MOONHOAX.US. The evidence will surprise you.
Can we trust NASA? Should we?
As much as some of you find our views contemptible and ignorant, we uphold the evidence which proves that the only lunar rovers ever on the moon were unmanned such as the one pictured here:Lunokhod1.
We realize taking such a position seems un-American, but in reality history authenticates the contrary. An upright citizen protects his fellowman against the abuses of his own government. Citizens such as Betty Grissom and her children know this all too well. If you wish to learn more about what events and evidence led us to the truth, visit moonmovie.com and learn the facts surrounding what is perhaps the biggest government conspiracy of all time.
In July of 1969, the entire world watched as Neil Armstrong called out those infamous words from the surface of a secret studio set: "That's one small step for man..." Now, for the first time, the full scale of the hoax has been exposed in detail by the research specialists, engineers, contributing editors and filmmakers brought together at MOONMOVIE.COM and our sister site.
One of the filmmakers formerly associated with this website is now mostly known for his over-the-top dedication to this research. He directly confronted nine of the Apollo astronauts with his claim that NASA had sent him footage by mistake, footage that proves the Apollo missions were indeed faked from start to finish. Investors were so impressed with his findings that they spent half a million dollars to expose the truth before the world. The world is taking notice, as you look below and to your right you'll see new visitors on our counter, who have joined you from all over the globe in a quest for the truth behind Apollo.
This site is the exclusive place to gain access to the historical footage of Apollo 11 (straight from NASA) that few in the world have ever seen. Are you willing to take a look behind the scenes of the moon landings of Apollo, past the 'All American' boy image of Neil Armstrong, and into the harsh reality that the Apollo missions were designed as a cover for something far removed from a peaceful race to the moon?
If so, perhaps you'd best begin by watching the story of a huge fan of the moon landings who discovered and brought to light the "window shot heard 'round the world."

MOON LANDING HOAX theory or fact? - Was the MOON LANDING fake? YES.
Top 10 Reasons Why No Man Has
Ever Set Foot on the Moon
1. The 130,000 Mile Deception.
Apollo 11. July 18th, 1969. Neil Armstrong, having heard CapCom report Columbia's distance from the Earth at 130,000 miles out - begins the unofficial television transmission [to be edited and partially played later] by echoing the same distance of 130,000 miles. In view, out the Commander's window is a small ball of blue, with a terminator line and weather patterns matching Earth's current conditions.
We are meant to believe that the blue ball is Earth. It is not. This evidence is our top reason. There can be no doubt. The Apollo 11 Westinghouse camera was not zooming through deep space to see a distant Earth and zooming back out again through deep space. When truly understood, when one understands that the Earth could not have remained in view through the small window across the room, or suddenly appeared as large as when they zoomed into it - this proves the hoax. This is the 'smoking gun' of Apollo, and the top reason to not believe the official story. Raw footage of this is available on the DVD Apollo 11 Monkey Business with detailed explanations in A Funny Thing Happened on the Way to the Moon, and confrontations about it with 9 of the Apollo astronauts inAstronauts Gone Wild.
Few people have taken the time to analyze this footage, but if they truly approach this footage for what it is and not what they hope it will be - they will come to the same conclusion. It is staged, and the Earth is fake.
Bart Sibrel got it wrong in A Funny Thing Happened on the Way to the Moon. He should have deeply consulted with other Hoax Researchers, but he did not. Sibrel thought it was an "in-orbit' shot of Earth through a circular window. Neither is correct. The commander's window is not circular, and there's no way this was the real Earth at all.
Behind Michael Collins, hanging on Window Number 1 [the commander's CM window] was a transparency - used when they brought down the lights and adjusted the camera exposure. The transparency was a picture of the planet Earth. This was first tested by another Apollo crew on their "flight", which can be examined in detail, through the research & videography of Jarrah White (linked above).
There is no room for "theory" here, in terms of whether or not Apollo safely sent men to the moon and back. The hoax is no longer simply speculation. It's an historical fact.
2. The Precedent of Secret U.S. Government Operations.
A knowledge of true history is needed to understand why the moon missions had to be faked. It had nothing to do with a real space race, but a fabricated and protected farce. The money powers needed to insure a race for arms and a race for space, manipulated for billions in profits for the global bankers and insider industrialists.
Japanese submarines at the mouth of Pearl Harbor were sunk many hours before the 1941 'surprise' attacks commenced. An intercepted, November communication of the attack plan was ignored. The U.S. entered WW II based on a lie. Sound familiar? The corrupt CIA and NSA were formed on the principal of insuring U.S. economic interests around the world and at home -- at any price.
John F. Kennedy, who had plans to unite the space exploration efforts of the Soviet Union with those of the United States, announcing hopes for a joint moon mission with the USSR at the United Nations -- thereby ending both the Space Race and Arms Race, never lived to see that day. The elite, international bankers would kill him before he had the chance, a mere two months after his joint moon mission speech of September 20th, 1963. (See video and documents: » The proposal for a joint US-USSR manned lunar expedition)
On June 8, 1967, US Navy intelligence ship USS Liberty was suddenly and brutally attacked on the high seas in international waters by the air and naval forces of Israel, under the direct orders of LBJ. The Gulf of Tonkin Incident was also a staged event, meant to insure expanded involvement in Vietnam. Area 51 continues to be one of the most heavily protected U.S. installations known today, guarding who-knows-exactly-what. And the list is endless.
Yes, covert operations have a prominent place in the U.S.A.'s recent sordid history. And although this reason in and of itself is not enough to prove the Manned Moon Landing to be a hoax, it certainly shows that the organizations are in place to carry out such an operation - 9 fake trips to the moon. Most .US. citizens are emotionally attached to the idea of "We got there first", so much so that the pride of being a part of the United States has made them forget what being citizen implies.
The foundation of this nation is dissent and rebellion against a corrupt government, never a worship of it. The government is to be a servant of the people, but our laziness has made us a slave to our government.
So, in summation, reason number 2 is that our own pride as a nation has blinded us to the fact that the intelligence community has been used as a tool of the elite to hijack our nation's assets and subject the will of the people to a "love affair" with NASA.
3. The Lunar Surface Photographic and Video Record.
Problems with lighting and the infamous C-Rock photo with it's "C-less" counterpart doctored photo have been the subject of much debate between those who believe the photos have remained unaltered and others who believe the photos were completely staged. Still there are some photos that seem to fall into the retouched category. Countless photographic anomalies remain in question. There is no doubt that the more significant problem with the C-Rock photo is that it has obviously been altered, and the alteration we refer to has nothing to do with the rock, but the more serious problem is the cut and paste of the rover and astronaut. Also, few people notice the C on the ground, telling the set workers where to place the rock. It's there on the ground, directly below the C on the rock.
We do not focus on shadows, except for a few photos. This is because the photos focused on by some have become straw men, easily debunked. The high-powered, fake sun reflected in the astronauts visors as a large circular object is a far stronger argument - and one that cannot be easily dismissed. We've included a link to Jack White's studies (left) for those interested in the photographic record, but again we don't place much weight on this argument. Shadow trajectory changes with terrain. It is the 8% average alb edo of the moon's surface that is more damning than shadow angles.
4. The Apollo 15 Flag Waving - Untouched.
In order to explain this one, the Apollo Believers must keep you guessing by resorting to claims of a static discharge with the astronaut's distant space suit. View the video for yourself (gif at top left of page), and see why this incident alone hits a lofty number 4 in our top 10.
5. The Limitations of 1960's Computer Technology, small meteors, and the Van Allen Belts.
Almost 40 years ago, with *combined CSM and LM guidance computer memory totaling only 10.3% [152kb] of a common 1.4MB [1474.56kb] floppy disk, NASA claims to have traveled 60,000% as far as any other manned spacecraft has gone before or since. Basically a household calculator (or discount watch) took 27 men [Apollo 8 to 17] to the moon and back, with the help of slide rules - accounting for fuel consumption, angle of approach, lunar landing, rate of descent, and so on. Yet at a distance of under 300 miles from Earth, we have lost the lives of 14 Shuttle astronauts who never left Earth orbit. In 9 trips there were no incidents involving small meteors, even though the hull of the craft dubbed the LM had a hull so thin in places that a screwdriver wall fall through the floor if dropped. Yes, Space is a big place - but there were no injuries or damage except Apollo 13's apparent self-inflicted wound? Van Allen made it clear in his 1958-59 report that travelers to the moon would need go around the belts, approaching the moon by first departing through the space directly above the the north or south poles of the Earth. These limitations alone, make the trip to the moon a theory, and not a fact.
6. "Moon" Rocks.
Wernher von Braun, a NAZI with the honorary rank equivalent of a major in Hitler's SS, took a team to Antarctica, while he was supposed to be perfecting Apollo's Saturn V rocket. This man signed papers to permit the use of slave laborers to build his V2 rockets, and over 20,000 people suffered daily and eventually died under his supervision. In addition, he sent countless V2 rockets into the heart of London - with plans to do so to Washington, D.C., New York, and Philadelphia. If he and his NAZI team were capable of such inhuman activities, it is clearly not a leap in logic to say they would have no problem continuing their unethical practices in this country as well. How? By falsifying the greatest purported evidence we have today for the manned landings -- by collecting meteorites to be later modified in a ceramic lab -- into forged moon rocks. Some say, we have tiny moon-made spheres! But these could have just as easily been collected by the unmanned probes we sent to the moon's surface.
7. The Testimony of Apollo Astronauts under Light Duress.
These men were professionals, trained to perform calmly under extreme pressure, but when it comes to defending the most important days of their professional career, they fall way short of producing the facts - resorting to threats of violence, unscientific statements, and absconding behavior. For example, in the film Astronauts Gone Wild, while defending the Apollo 11 footage of the Earth from 130,000 miles out, Buzz Aldrin said things like, "They can do all kinds of things with fake photography" (even though he shot this film with his own hands) and "We're passengers. We're guys going on a flight." Kicking and punching - is that a behavior of someone who knows they are in the right or someone angry at the threat of being exposed? And what about the Apollo 11 Press Conference (DVD)? Armstrong says he can't remember which stars he could see from the surface while shooting photos. Collins covers for him, saying "I don't remember seeing any". Collins of course, was not supposed to be on the moon's surface, so the NASA transcript attributes this saying to Aldrin.
8. The Apollo One Fire.
The three men who died at Pad 34 did not have to die. We all know that, but why did they die? After years of investigation into the findings of the 90th Congress, we believe that the AS-204 crew were not simply victims of neglect - they were executed. The findings are detailed in the multimedia DVD The Apollo One Accident Report, along with the complete 3,500+ page report for your own investigation. Lt. Col. Gus Grissom, a man of the highest military integrity, pulled the largest lemon he could find off the tree in his back yard, and told his wife, "I'm going to hang it on that spacecraft". This was 5 days after the famous media day pictures had been taken at Pad 34, and five days before he would die at Pad 34. Grissom also called a press conference to address grievances against NASA and North American regarding the failures of the CSM Block 1. There is no doubt that he, Roger Chaffee and Ed White [whose wife Pat was later 'suicided'] were on a path that would surely lead to heated confrontations and the public exposure of the manned moon landing hoax. They were sacrificed. There is no doubt about it. The evidence is clear.
9. The Means and the Motive.
Does life imitate art, or art imitate life -- or is it possible that sometimes artsimulates and manipulates life? Some have claimed that Stanley Kubrick was involved in the production of the Apollo EVAs. And not long ago, a Canadian, tongue-in-cheek film was produced to make a mockery of this claim. We hold no clear position on the matter. In addition, since the 1950's Walt Disney was recruited to create widespread public acceptance of a very expensive trip to the moon, as well as the public approval of a group of NAZI war criminals, led by Wernher von Braun. The result was widespread disinformation, but the end motive is not all together clear. One must ask, "Was the space race itself a fabrication, set up by those behind what Eisenhower called the "Military Industrial Complex"? See Reason 9.
Stanley Kubrick's 2001 A Space Odyssey proves that the technology existed to fake the dockings, landings, walks, and takeoffs from the moon's surface. The means existed. On that note, Google Search "Lookout Mountain Studio".
10. The Fake Lunar Footage.
A model of the moon is used for the Apollo 11 descent footage. Anyone with basic knowledge of motion pictures can see it's a fake moon. This fake footage is on the the tape we received from NASA, compiled on the DVDMonkey Business: False Photography Unedited. Another example is the Lunar Ascent Module footage. It depicts a rotation that immediately commences at full speed, and after rotation, immediately stops. There is absolutely no indication of a drop off in speed or a gradual acceleration, as Newton's law of motion would necessitate. In addition, there are problems with the descent of at least two LEMs as well, as can be seen to the left in the Apollo 17 footage. We've gotten a lot of feedback on this, but perhaps if you'd seen the mislabeled tape sent to Sibrel from NASA's Johnson Space Center, you'd move this reason closer to number 1. The contents of that tape are available - Apollo 11 Monkey Business: False Photography Unedited. You'd better watch it while sitting down. We have accumulated and produced over 250 YouTube videos that you can watch for free. We are convinced that our YouTube videos alone, put together with Jarrah White's YouTube videos will convince any honest person that Apollo did not take men to the moon.
Sadly, our YouTube account was finally removed after a second wave of attacks by 'NASA worshippers'. After having had over 60 of our videos removed, we transferred them to a Justin.TV account and »MySpace.com. Both crimes against our free speech were the result of our enemies' handiwork. We learned that the Apollo-Believer propagandists had flagged our videos for 'inappropriate content'.
Films on the Moon Hoax
Whether or not you believe Neil Armstrong and 11 other men stepped foot on the moon, you have stumbled upon a treasure chest of information here on this page, captured for both the skeptic and the optimist. For Apollo Believers, you can have us send to your home, documented historical film records of the Apollo 11 mission: Apollo 11: Monkey Business False Photography Unedited and the self-titled Apollo 11 Post Flight Press Conference. Sibrel left both video histories as they were, with no video or text commentary. He did however alternate the camera angles in the 1 hour and 23 minute press conference, by taking the two or three camera shots and creating one motion picture. The crew goes over much of the mission, and then opens the floor for questioning. It's very good. And again, no comments are made. It's as if NASA had made the DVD themselves.
But I will be honest with you about the rest of the documentary films here. They will only make you angry if you continue to persist in the belief that man went to the moon. We hope that you enjoy your visit here, despite your possible convictions that NASA is unlike any other federal government institution created - and simply tells the truth. More and more people are looking for the truth these days.
Conspiracy Theory: Did We Land On The Moon
Directed by John Moffet. With Mitch Pileggi, Thomas Ronald Baron, Paul Fjeld, Betty Grissom ; Documentary - 15 February 2001 (USA); Run time: 45 minutes [online]
Skeptics analyze the discrepancies and inconsistencies in the evidence that men landed on the moon in the late 1960s and early 1970s. Their conclusion: NASA faked the moon landings! Evidence of deception includes: the physical problems inherent in rocket control; the lack of a blast crater under the LM descent engine; the lack of stars in the lunar sky; discrepancies and similarities in the shadows and backgrounds of moon photos; flag waving on an airless moon; and the presence of deadly radiation in interplanetary space. The skeptics contend that astronauts have never flown beyond the Van Allen radiation belt.
Dark Side Of The Moon

» Dark Side Of The Moon
How could the flag flutter when there’s no wind on the moon? During an interview with Stanley Kubrick’s widow an extraordinary story came to light. She claims Kubrick and other Hollywood producers were recruited to help the U.S. win the high stakes race to the moon. In order to finance the space program through public funds, the U.S. government needed huge popular support, and that meant they couldn’t afford any expensive public relations failures. Fearing that no live pictures could be transmitted from the first moon landing, President Nixon enlisted the creative efforts of Kubrick, whose 2001: a Space Odyssey (1968) had provided much inspiration, to ensure promotional opportunities wouldn’t be missed.
In return, Kubrick got a special NASA lens to help him shoot Barry Lyndon (1975). A subtle blend of facts, fiction and hypothesis around the first landing on the moon, Dark Side Of The Moon illustrates how the truth can be twisted by the manipulation of images.
With use of ‘hijacked’ archival footage, false documents, real interviews taken out of context or transformed through voice-over or dubbing, staged interviews, as well as, interviews with astronauts like Buzz Aldrin and others, Dark Side Of The Moon navigates the viewer through lies and truth; fact and fiction. This is no ordinary documentary. Its intent is to inform and entertain the viewer, but also to shake him up – make him aware that one should always view television with a critical eye.

What Happened on the Moon? - Hoax, Lies and Videotape
David Percy / Aulis.com, 2000; Run time: 222 minutes [2 DVD Set]
An Investigation Into Apollo.
What's the real reason behind NASA's recent lack of funding? Might it be the fact that the space race is all an elaborately staged bit of chicanery? Were the Apollo missions all a sham? Were the moon landings nothing more than Hollywood set dressing? If you answered yes to these questions, then this documentary is for you.
The 2 Hour Film based on the Book Dark Moon: Apollo and the Whistle-Blowers. The film by David Percy, based on the book that he co-authored is the most comprehensive analysis of the hoax to date. Bart Sibrel's contribution of the faked footage makes this the ultimate collection in video evidence for a moon landing hoax.
New evidence clearly suggests that NASA hoaxed pictures allegedly taken on the lunar surface. This compelling program throws into serious doubt the authenticity of the Apollo missions and features information that challenges the declared abilities of NASA to successfully send a man to the Moon and return him safely to Earth. This presentation is in three parts. Part one deals with the Apollo still photographs and the TV coverage, part two looks at the dangers of radiation...
A Funny Thing Happened on the Way to the Moon
Bart Sibel; 2001; Run time: 47 minutes [1 DVD]
Love him or leave him, Bart Sibrel brought the moon landing hoax back into the mainstream of international news and intrigue. Perhaps no other individual is responsible for so much attention put back on the question of whether or not men allegedly traveled to the moon and back 9 times from 1969 to 1972.
Mr. Sibrel's films have spotlighted the demand for serious inquiry into the affairs of government worldwide and man's constant struggle for liberty and justice in the midst of government corruption, now more than ever before.
In the 2001 film, A Funny Thing Happened on the Way to the Moon, Sibrel made several claims that he believed show that the Apollo Moon Landings were faked. The film covers other claims made by conspiracy theorists, such as the lighting on the moon and the need for protection from radiation within and beyond the Van Allen Belts.
In his film, Sibrel displayed unedited NASA footage that allegedly revealed several serious flaws in NASA's account of Apollo 11's journey to the moon. Sibrel claims to have spent considerable time and effort in going through all of the NASA-sourced Apollo footage that he could get his hands on — having ordered it himself directly from NASA. In addition to the common films which have been made more readily available to the public, a mislabeled reel from the Johnson's Space Center was also among the footage. There were over 20 takes from the Apollo 11 mission, including the lunar orbit, descent, docking, and ascent — but one sticks out to believers in a moon landing hoax as the most damning. It is the unedited footage of Aldrin inside the CSM, filming what is purported to be a distant Earth in deep space "about 130,000 miles out" through the 'Number 1 Window". However, later on when the camera pulls back through 'deep space', a supposed floodlight which was not turned on before the zoom in to the Earth, now appears on the upper left side of the frame during the zoom out. This footage is cited by Sibrel as evidence that the astronauts were deceitfully simulating deep space by claiming to have the camera fully up against and "blocking the window" — when in fact the camera was never anywhere near the window. Sibrel claims the Earth depicted in the footage cannot be the real globe of the Earth viewable in the CSM's small window, especially at the sharp angle, because the Earth remains constantly in full view during the zoom out — in the picture no matter how badly the camera moves or shakes.Jay Windley, an amateur astronomer, defending Project Apollo alleges that the "secret" NASA footage Sibrel uses is actually widely available and merely shows the Astronauts practicing for an upcoming live telecast.
Sibrel believes that the technology of the United States during the era was behind that of the Soviets. He points to a supposed "five-to-one superiority" in man-hours in space held by the Soviets over the US as well as highlighting several Soviet space firsts.The "five-to-one" figure has been strongly challenged by Jay Windley, on his Clavius website, a site dedicated to the debunking of the Apollo Moon Landing hoax accusations claiming that the Americans had a clear lead in man hours in space by the time Apollo 11 was launched.The relevance of some of the Soviet 'firsts' in relation to a landing of the moon has also been called into question by Windley.
Sibrel has also stated the life-threatening events that occurred during the Apollo 13 mission were actually manufactured by the government to force people to pay attention to the space program. Sibrel also participated in the controversial Fox Television Network special, Conspiracy Theory: Did We Land on the Moon? In it, Sibrel stated that, "I'd bet my life that we never went to the moon." The British stage actress Anne Tonelson narrates A Funny Thing Happened on the Way to the Moon, while Sibrel appears in perhaps his most controversial film: Astronauts Gone Wild — An Investigation into the Authenticity of the Moon Landings.
Astronauts Gone Wild
Bart Sibel; 2004; Run time: 53 minutes [1 DVD]
Astronauts Gone Wild is a 2004 film made by Bart Sibrel, a filmmaker from Nashville, Tennessee who charges that the six Apollo moon landings in the 1960s and 1970s were elaborate hoaxes. Sibrel made this film, 53 minutes in length, as a follow-up to his 2001 video A Funny Thing Happened on the Way to the Moon, which accuses NASA of falsifying the Apollo 11 mission photography. He also appeared in the TV special aired on the FOX network in 2001, called Conspiracy Theory: Did We Land on the Moon?. More recently he made appearances on radio programs expanding on his conspiracy theory and explaining why he believes that the Apollo Moon landings were a hoax.
Encounters with Buzz Aldrin
In the film Astronauts Gone Wild, Mr. Sibrel confronts nine Apollo astronauts and asks them to swear an oath on a Bible that they did, in fact, voyage to the moon and back. His first televised encounter is with the Apollo 11 crewmember Buzz Aldrin. Inside an office room, he shows Dr. Aldrin his "secret" footage, which Sibrel says was sent to him by mistake from NASA. According to Sibrel, this footage shows the crew rigging a shot inside their spacecraft to appear halfway to the Moon, when they were really in Earth orbit and trying to deceive the world. Aerospace engineer Jay Windley is among those who claim that Sibrel has misinterpreted the video. He points out that the scene of Earth in the footage shows a cloud pattern that remains constant throughout the video, something that would not be possible if the crew were in Earth orbit. Furthermore, if a transparency were really used to simulate the appearance of Earth in deep space, as Sibrel has claimed, it could not adequately fake the weather conditions that have been documented as taking place in July 1969.
Aldrin dismisses Sibrel's arguments, stating "We went to the Moon; we're not misleading anybody." Later in the film, Sibrel confronts Aldrin on another occasion, this time in September 2002 in Beverly Hills, California. The filmmaker makes his Bible demand. When the ex-astronaut refuses and tries his best to get away from the man, Sibrel follows Aldrin and calls him "a coward and a liar and a thief..." Having had enough of Sibrel's stalking tactics, Aldrin punches (visually described as a right overhand) the man on camera. This incident, which made national headlines at the time, is the best known response he received from one of the Apollo astronauts about his conspiracy belief.Interestingly, in a recent radio interview, Sibrel stated that he blames himself for provoking Aldrin to punch him. He claims to have sent Aldrin a letter of apology.
Encounters with other astronauts
As shown in the video, Sibrel also was able to interview astronauts Alan Bean, Gene Cernan and Edgar Mitchel about the Apollo project. Bean, for instance, states that the full-up testing of the Saturn V rocket cut months off the schedule and was an impetus in reaching the moon before decade's end. Cernan describes an experiment on his moon mission, Apollo 17, that was specifically designed to study the radiation of the Van Allen Belts. The interviews end with the request to swear an oath on Sibrel's Bible. He asks them to "swear and affirm, under penalty of eternal damnation, perjury and treason" that the astronauts really went to the moon. Cernan and Mitchell testify that they did indeed walk on the moon, taking the whole oath as Sibrel states it to them. Alan Bean is also willing to swear on Sibrel's Bible, though Sibrel shows him as unwilling to swear under penalty of treason.
Later, Mitchell had the following to say about his encounter: "Sibrel faked his way into my home with false History Channel credentials for an interview. After about 3-4 minutes, he popped the Bible question. Realizing who he was, I maintained my cool enough to swear on his Bible, then ended the interview and tossed him out of the house, with a boot in his rear."
The other astronauts Sibrel confronts are Michael Collins, Al Worden, Bill Anders, John Young and Neil Armstrong. He did not arrange formal interviews with any of these men, instead accosting them at public events to make his Bible request. For the most part, these astronauts do the best they can to avoid him as soon as they find out that he supports the conspiracy theory.He confronts Armstrong at a meeting of stockholders in New York City, according to Armstrong's recent biography, First Man: The Life of Neil A. Armstrong, by James Hansen. During interviews for the biography, regarding the hoax claims Armstrong said "It doesn't bother me. It will all pass in time." The Apollo 11 commander refuses to go along with his demands and states "Mr. Sibrel, you do not deserve answers." Meanwhile, Worden tells Sibrel that his claims of a falsified mission are "totally nonsense." He says that he has no problem swearing on the Bible of his trip to the Moon, but that he doesn't feel he needs to do so.

You will have the opportunity to do your own investigation, as you pour over the hours of interesting reading - from the infamous whistle blower Thomas Baron who turned up dead with his wive and daughter one week after he testified before Congress, to men like Joseph Shea who was supposed to have prevented the 'accident' by opening the hatch and hooking up a fourth headset - but refused, and instead left for Houston. Learn about the man who was only inches away from the capsule, but 'thought it might be a drill'. And much, much, much more....
