This is one of the favorite theories of conspiracy theories: Man has never been to the Moon. If it’s hilarious, when one of the most famous French astronauts suggests that no one has been to our natural satellite, the video inevitably goes viral.
Pesquet accused of conspiracy
Indeed, you must have already heard of the “moon hoax“, namely that the Apollo mission would only be a staging whose images would have been shot by Stanley Kubrick. This theory just gained momentum again after French astronaut Thomas Pesquet accidentally said a sentence during an interview with France 2.
The interview took place this Sunday, August 28 on the public service channel. Thomas Pesquet is interviewed to discuss the Artémis 1 mission, the take-off of which has been postponed to this Saturday. During the news at 8 p.m., astronaut hints that no human would have walked on lunar soil :
When I look at the Moon at night, it still gives me a little shiver, because it’s not the same thing to say to yourself is it humanly possible to go there. The Moon, you have to see that there is a factor of 1000. It is 1000 times further than the Space Station. There is yet another dimension to space travel.
It was enough for the conspirators to seize on this statement to support their thesis. Especially since Thomas Pesquet adds:
We are going to go very far. As far as no human being has traveled from Earth.
Thomas Pesquet does not play the game of conspirators, he is perfectly right
The video captured and edited by a surfer quickly went viral. Except that you have to put the quote from the astronaut in context. Indeed, Pesquet answered the question of what the Artemis mission had more compared to trips to the ISS.
Listen to the end and oops what does the astronaut say…\ud83e\udd14 pic.twitter.com/kOp9ei3ELSAugust 30, 2022
The latter answers the question correctly since the Artemis program will go further than what has been done in the past. And for good reason : if NASA’s Apollo missions approached 300 kilometers from our satellite, the Orion spacecraft would follow an elliptical trajectory that would take it 70,000 km from the Moon. Thomas Pesquet was therefore right in asserting that the trip planned for 2025 will go “very, very far, as far as no human being has ever gone from Earth“.
And if anyone thinks Pesquet is a conspirator and questions the presence of man on the moon in 1969, from the beginning of this same interview, he states that the Artemis mission is considered “the great return of man and woman to the moon“. Moreover, after his passage on France 2 and the broadcast of this video, the astronaut reacted on his Twitter account to denounce the conspirators who only wish “blur the truth” and reaffirm that Man had indeed gone to the Moon during the Apollo missions and that he was about to return.
But why do we have to waste precious time on this again: of course yes, humans went to the moon during the Apollo missions. And we’re going back.August 31, 2022
And to add in a series of tweets that he has indeed been in space twice and that that the “drunk“to have to make this clarification for those who doubt the extraordinary work of”thousands of people around the world“who provide”amazing job for space missions“. And tackle the “guy who arrives hidden behind his keyboard“for the sole purpose of being listened to. And who cares if the conspirators don’t like it, the rendezvous is given on the Moon in a few years.
