Moon Landing in Studio 14

On July 20, 1969, television networks aired what at that time was believed to be the first manned landing on Earth’s Moon. The moon landing tape had been produced on April 1, 1969 in Sedona, Arizona at Studio 14.

The story was that Neil Armstrong commanded the Apollo 11 mission and was accompanied by Edwin ‘Buzz’ Aldrin. Together, they landed the lunar module Eagle on the surface of the moon. They were said to have spent one day on the surface of the Moon before returning to Earth.

On May 12, 2008, a picture and footage surfaced showing Neil Armstrong on a movie set of the Moon. The picture shows the film crew and a microphone during the filming of a scene. The video is one of several takes of Neil Armstrong stepping onto the moon. was the first to obtain this rare footage.

The Apollo 11 mission tape was filmed because NASA in no way was ready to fulfill President John F. Kennedy’s goal of landing on the moon.

“I believe that this nation should commit itself to achieving this goal, before this decade is out, of landing a man on the Moon and returning him safely to Earth.”

-1961 speech by John F. Kennedy.

The hoax was widely accepted by the American public, reminiscent of Orson Welles’ 1938 radio adaption of The War of the Worlds.

After the initial “moon landing” up until 1972, there were in fact five landings that did occur on the Moon.

    Yeah Dave, that was pretty amusing.

    I had a roommate one year who tried to convince me that it all really was a hoax. If he ever finds your site, I’m sure he’ll send me the link as proof.

    BTW, I StumbleUponed (not as good a verb as Digged or Dugged or whatever, but hey) your site. Just doing my part, man.
