This is the photo that conspiracy theorists say proves the Moon landing was a fraud

Published

on


In 1969, Neil Armstrong became the first human to set foot on the Moon. It was an incredible technological and scientific achievement for the human race, and the 11 other men who followed in his dusty footsteps are still the only humans to ever set foot somewhere other than Earth. That, of course, is assuming you believe the “official” account of things. If you’re on the fringes of the conspiracy community, on the other hand, you believe that the Moon landing was just a big lie cooked up by… lizard people or something, I guess.

Lots of “evidence” supporting the Moon landing hoax theory has cropped up in the past, but nothing has ever swayed the public as a whole. Now, hoax believers are pointing to an old photograph taken by an astronaut as potential proof that the lunar surface we see in Moon landing images is nothing more than a film set.

The photo in question comes from the Apollo 16 mission which took place in 1972. In the image, astronaut John Young is seen taking samples from the lunar surface. In the background, large boulders and smaller rocks litter the pale landscape, and a quick glance at the photograph doesn’t reveal anything particularly damning, but conspiracy theorists want you to take a much closer look.

Behind Young’s head, near the edge of the horizon, the supposed “boulder” is now the subject of debate. The photo’s description says that the background contains boulders as well as the Lunar Roving Vehicle, but conspiracy believers are seeing something else. Specifically, they believe that a lunar base is actually visible in the distance, along with additional personnel who weren’t supposed to be there.

This claim points to yet another fringe theory regarding the Moon landings. Rather than believing that the landings themselves were staged, a subset of the conspiracy community believes that NASA actually went to the Moon and found evidence of alien life there. Rather than tell the world about the discovery, they believe that NASA covered it up. The photo, they suggest, shows that NASA sent additional crew to the Moon after discovering extraterrestrial life, and even set up a lunar habitat there.

Or, as one YouTube commenter suggests, it’s probably “just a Starbucks.”

I want to live in AT&T’s fantasy world where prices actually go down

Published

on


We’re weeks into the court proceedings between AT&T, which is trying to buy Time Warner Inc, and the Justice Department that is suing to block the deal. We’ve heard from economic experts about how prices will soar, and from AT&T’s own execs about how cable is the company’s “cash cow.”

But on Thursday, we finally got to hear from AT&T CEO Randall Stephenson, and he stuck right to the party line. AT&T acquiring Time Warner wouldn’t drive up prices, Stephenson claimed: It will actually be the other way around.

Reuters reports that Stephenson told the court there would be cost savings from the merger:

He said that he wanted to combine what AT&T knew about its customers with Time Warner’s ability to create compelling content.

This would help AT&T, which owns the biggest pay TV company DirecTV, build a cheaper online product that could be partially sustained through advertising, he said.

AT&T’s own lawyer also brought up an initial assessment of the merger, produced by AT&T, which said the deal would have “no significant cost synergies.” Stephenson refuted that analysis and said that later studies showed that it would.

Washington Post reporter Brian Fung said that Stephenson also mentioned AT&T will be coming out with a new streaming service later this month. Called AT&T Watch, it will cost $15 per month instead of the $35 that AT&T currently charges for its streaming service, DirecTV Now. It won’t have any sports channels, however.

A new skinny streaming bundle is a good talking point for AT&T in court, but it doesn’t change the fact that historically, mergers in the telecoms industry have been shown to raise prices. AT&T has argued that this won’t apply to this particular merger, since Time Warner is a content company, not a telecoms company. The government (and all rational people who like to watch TV) argue that AT&T will use Time Warner’s content, which includes must-have channels like HBO and CNN, as leverage over its competitors to keep prices high and restrict the success of streaming services.
