Smoking Gun - Apollo 11 
'Live' Broadcast Faked

We now have concrete evidence which proves that live pictures broadcast to the world by Apollo 11 which showed the astronaut jumping off the ladder down to the surface of the moon did NOT originate on the moon. Forget about rock shadows and shadow angles. Finally, the smoking gun. We will use NASA's images, unenhanced to prove this. 
 
The proof for the fake broadcast has been hidden in plain site all along ­ it is the ladder on the Lunar Lander. In researching this, it appears other images were also faked or staged. 
 
First, let's look at several images of the Lunar Lander as it appears on the moon. These images were supposedly taken with a high quality Hasselblad color film camera by the astronauts: 
 Fig. 1 ­ Aldrin shown here unpacking experiments. Shock absorbers shown here (RED arrows) are not covered in foil but are wrapped in a black material. Photo by a NASA astronaut. Image source: 5927 NASA.jpg 
Fig. 2 - Another photo from the moon, not showing the ladder side of the lander. This image looks like a toy model. Why would so much gold foil be missing? The pieces on the lunar surface clearly do not add up to the amount of gold foil missing from the Lander. 
 
Compare the gold foil covering the legs of the lander (WHITE arrow) with the previous image in Figure 1. It does not match. RED arrow - Note shock absorber pairs on each Lander strut do not have foil but some other type of covering, probably for insulation. Source: http://history.nasa.gov/alsj/a15/AS15-87-11839.jpg 
Fig. 2a ­ Closeup of strut on Lunar surface. Note shock absorber (RED arrow) is covered with foil in this photo, not the black wrapping material we see in previous images. This was also supposedly taken on the Moon's surface by an astronaut.

Fig. 3 - This official image is also from a NASA website. Note the thin ladder shown here. (This ladder is not visible in Fig. 1.) Source: http://www.hq.nasa.gov/office/pao/History/ap11ann/ kippsphotos/5863.jpg 
Compare the robust heavy gold foil covering shown here on Lander with the thinner foil shown in Fig. 2. 
 
 
 
Fig. 4 ­ Astronaut steps off the ladder onto the moon in this photo. Note that this ladder does NOT reach down to the surface. NASA stated at the time that the astronaut had to jump off the bottom rung onto the lunar surface. NO explanation was ever given by NASA for this silly ladder design requiring astronauts to make a blind, backward jump down to the surface. If the strut contains a shock absorber which could shorten the strut momentarily upon landing, designers should have given the astronaut a simple hinged ladder extension which could be kicked down with his foot. RED arrow - Note the size of he ladder stringer. Ladder stringers shown here are very thin, but could work in the 1/6 gravity on the Moon. More about this later.

Fig. 5 ­ Televised live first step on the moon. THIS IS THE SMOKING GUN. Compare the ladder stringer (RED arrows) shown here to the image in Fig. 4. THE STRINGER DOES NOT MATCH. This image was taken from a television set the day this supposedly took place.

For the 1G gravity environment on Earth, a THICKER ladder stringer would be required to support the weight of the astronaut, his costume and backpack. Hence, the heavier ladder shown in Fig. 5 (RED arrows.) In this image, we see the astronaut/actor about to step out onto the elevated stage in a NASA studio (BLUE arrow) as I've proven in my previous photo essay:

Does this mean we never went to the moon? Not necessarily. What this clearly proves is that the Apollo 11 "live broadcast" in 1969 was a fake. And possibly some of the still pictures that were taken on the Moon, too. 
 
Case Closed.
