WASHINGTON - Conspiracy theorists have endeavoured to disprove the ‘giant leap’ made by man by walking on the moon, with a recent video being uploaded to YouTube highlighting something strange in the six and final moon landing, according to MailOnline.
The user has pointed out that a figure on the lunar surface is not wearing a spacesuit.
Streetcap1, a YouTube user, focuses on an image which purports to show a ‘stagehand’ reflected in the visor of an astronaut after Apollo 17 landed on the moon in December 1972.
On the mission, Eugene Cernan and Harrison ‘Jack’ Schmitt spent about 22 hours on the surface in the Taurus-Littrow valley, while colleague Ronald Evans orbited overhead.
The team are said to have carried out a series of experiments including seismic profiling, atmospheric composition analysis and lunar sampling.
The video clip has garnered more than 53,000 views and contains a commentary by the user who says of the visor reflection: “I thought it looked a bit strange, so I took a picture of it using my software.”
“What we appear to have here is a figure of a human not wearing a spacesuit. There was some dispute back in 2009 of the legitimacy of these photos.”
He describes the strange figure as having “long hair” and “wearing some sort of waistcoat”.
And concludes: “Did we make it to the moon? Where’s this guy’s spacesuit?”
