Former NASA Employee: “The Moon Landings Were Faked”

Former NASA contractor Cyndi Holland says she found proof that the moon landings were faked when she worked at the agency a few decades ago.

A former NASA contractor claims to have proof that the Apollo 11 moon landings were faked when she worked at the agency a few decades ago.

When Cyndi Holland got a job at NASA, she was over the moon. Metaphorically of course – not in the way she believed the astronauts of the time were as they pootled around on the International Space Station.

I was a college student and janitor for the US Air Force when I applied for the contractor position with NASA,” she recounts. “It was the winter of 1996, I was a single mom to a five-year-old boy and was trying to get into a career. I was told by several Air Force employees that NASA wanted to hire women and black people, so I sent them my resume.”

Within days, Cyndi had an interview and, shortly afterwards, was offered a job. “It was an entry level IT Support position,” she says. “I was thrilled and terrified.”

Cyndi loved her job. “I felt important for the first time. The job was unique and fun. I managed the computer back-up system, logged trouble calls, managed the plotter machine from the SR71 flights, installed software on users machines and put together computer stations.”

Cyndi’s office was right next to the NASA photo lab. “That’s where the photographic history was kept,” explains Cyndi. “It was off limits to most NASA employees unless escorted.”

Being situated next to the lab, she often heard the technicians and photographers chatting while they worked. One afternoon, she overheard two photo lab technicians discussing the Apollo 11 moon landing of 1969. “I could hear every word they said,” claims Cyndi.

It was only when I heard one of them say ‘I can’t believe everyone in the world fell for it. Surely everyone can see it was all fake, one big hoax’ that my ears pricked up.”

NASA contractor Cyndi Holland says she overheard other NASA engineers claim the moon landings were "fake" and "one big hoax."

Despite the scandalous nature of this revelation, career-minded Cyndi, 28 at the time, engrossed in her work and not wanting jeopardize her job in any way, decided to forget about it. “I’m not sure if they knew I could hear them, if they wanted me to hear them… but they were being bold about it… I thought they were crazy and blew it off.”

It was only much later – in 2009 – that the story sprang to Cindy’s mind once more. “I started to become aware of what was going on in the world and began to look into various conspiracies. It all started to fall into place.”

The first person she mentioned it to was her eldest son Brandon, then 18. “Brandon had already worked out for himself that the moon landings were fake, so I decided to tell him about what I’d heard at NASA. He wasn’t surprised.”

Now 47, a mum of four and living in Phoenix, Arizona, Cindy has recently become involved with the Flat Earth Movement. Through this, she has discovered that fellow members believe that the Apollo 11 moon landing never happened and that much of what happens around NASA is fake. “I ‘woke up’ in 2009 and I learned about all the fake stuff the US government had done and were doing. Around that time, I remembered an engineer at Lockheed Martin – where I worked after I left NASA – telling me the earth was flat. I didn’t take it seriously at the time: it was not on my radar.”

In May of 2016, Cyndi saw a YouTube video about the earth being flat…”I was very surprised,” she claims. “I was intrigued and started my journey. For at least two weeks, I was in a daze, researching the subject overloading my brain with information.”

Cyndi recalled the photo lab engineers at NASA laughing about how people believed in the moon landings and that’s when she realized the truth… those technicians, like the Lockheed engineer before them, KNEW the true shape of the earth! As Cyndi says: “They had to know if they worked in the photo lab… the pilots would bring photographers and take photos, they must have seen a ton of proof!

After further research, Cyndi has decided that it’s time to tell the world. “I had to speak out,” she says. “It’s too big a truth to withhold. I was afraid at first – worried about the repercussions – so didn’t speak to anyone about it for months. But now I don’t care who I lose or upset by sharing this truth. We are all flat earthers – some people just don’t know yet.”

    OK. “Involved with the Flat-Earth movement”. That says she is acting on behalf of the CIA Flat Earth psy-op to delegitimize real human accomplishments. And more so to make us think that we DON’T have the ability to visit other locations.
    This is total dis-info. And this is the very reason why this Flat Earth psy-op has been launched. Don’t fall for it. Buzz Aldering smacking a journalist up the face when he remotely suggested the moon landings to be fake is telling too.

    • D Barnes

      Buzz Aldrin did not hit a journalist. He hit a idiot who got into his face and said he was a liar and a crook. Thats why he hit him, and he deserved to be hit.

      • Artificial Duality

        Absolutely deserved yes. It told of an insult to a first-degree experience Buzz had gone through.

  • Christian Thomas

    Sorry Todd, if we have been to the moon it wasn’t in rockets and it wasn’t in 1969. A week, or three, of scouring the internet will convince you of that. A really simply test is to ask if the USA would have risked its reputation on a real-time mission to the moon? Of course they wouldn’t have. But why include the Flat Earth in this, Jacqui? It’s tangential to the topic at best. The pertinent questions are whether the world was lied to (it was) and whether the US taxpayers were deceived and ripped off (they were). The flat earth, if it is not a dividing psyop, comes much, much later.

    • Teb Tb

      We went to the moon. Sorry to burst your bubble.

    • D Barnes

      We did go to the moon, and your assumption that NASA would risk their reputation is just another asinie retort from people who cannot grasp the science of how it was.achieved so they must mock it or try and deny it.

    • D Barnes

      They did go to the moon, to say otherwise diminishes the accomplishment of the men and women who were responsible for going

      • Christian Thomas

        If they didn’t go then there is no accomplishment. Watch “A funny thing happened on the way to the moon”. 90 minutes that will change your outlook on who is in charge. Everything you have been told is a lie.

        • D Barnes

          You mean the fake documentary? LMAO So thats your proof your evidence, some fake documemtary made by people showing gullible peoplw are.

          • Christian Thomas

            At what level would you like to start? I can take you right up to the rocketry and show you that we didn’t have control mechanisms to keep a rocket going in a straight line in a vacuum if you like, let alone hit a target that required fractions of arc seconds in accuracy.

          • D Barnes

            Please show us and tell us how we couldnt navigate in a vacuum

          • Christian Thomas

            Control surfaces don’t do anything in a vacuum so there is no ‘steering’. You would therefore be reliant on the direction of thrust from the engines. These are pretty powerful. If that thrust doesn’t go exactly through the centre of gravity (which is changing all the time with fuel burning and astronauts moving about) then the rocket goes spinning off into space like a Catherine wheel. Even with technology today, building a servo that could react quickly enough to a moment like that would be very hard, not least because there is no damping whatever. I wouldn’t have a clue how to even model a system that invites oscillations with an infinite Q. There point is that there is zero chance of a the computers on board Apollo 11 being able to do it.

            I’ll just add that we have had rockets on earth for 500 years or more. Doing it in air is easy, but you will notice that almost all our missiles have tail fins and control surfaces. Very probably all of them, but I am not an avid reader of Jane’s Defence Weekly.

          • D Barnes

            No sir, you would not be relying on engine thrusters alone. They also had directional thrusters, which they used to keep themselves oriented correctly.

            “For guidance and control, the Apollo spacecraft featured a large engine and smaller reaction control system thrusters that, when fired, changed the roll, pitch, and yaw of the spacecraft, as well as providing thrust in what direction was necessary to get back on track”

            “For the Apollo space missions, engineers at the MIT Instrumentation Lab (now the Charles Stark Draper Laboratory) developed the Primary Guidance, Navigation, and Control System (PGNCS), which consisted of a computer, software, inertial measurement unit (IMU), and optical instruments.”

            http://engineering.mit.edu/ask/how-were-we-able-navigate-earth-moon-such-precision

            This took me all of 5 minutes to find.

          • Christian Thomas

            We know it had a control system. I said that when I mentioned the word servo. I am saying that you couldn’t do the correction fast enough with 1969 technology. You have an engine that is going to accelerate you to 25,000 mph and if that doesn’t go exactly through the C of G the moment created will have the ship spinning in microseconds, and there is nothing to damp it. And there are no aerodynamics to keep its nose pointing forward. Even if you apply correction the lack of damping ensures it is an oscillatory system. It just simply wouldn’t work, let alone attain an accuracy well below arc seconds needed to put it in the corridor for orbit round the moon. Really, the idea that you can fire the engines for a fixed amount of time, starting at exactly the right point in your orbit around the earth, and then find yourself in orbit around the moon because of your good work is almost comical.

        • D Barnes

          But again they did go, and there is no proof that they didn’t. There is both physical proof and objective evidence.
          You do not have that with the conspiracy that they didn’t go.

      Flat Earth Society was never mentioned in this article. Read carefully when you read. Beside, why can’t both be real? After honestly looking into FE for nearly two years, I no longer know what we live on. If you can cut through the obvious disinfo that accompanies FE, it makes a lot of sense and probably more than a ball earth does.

      • Maggie May Lynn

        Thats bcuz the Flat Earth Society specifically & im sure there may be others too but they have been known to purposely give misinformation attempting to just make the truth about flat earth seem too ridiculous. Anyone seeking the truth shud recognize this as only more motivation to keep investigating bcuz i found out it leads to the most important answer every human soul has the right & needs to know.

        • D Barnes

          Flat earth is and always has been the deluded imaginations of people that have no scientific background or training what so ever.
          If anyone really wanted to know and prove that we are on a flat earth all they would have to do is charter to Antarctica and take videos or pictures to prove their theory, but to date not one flat earther has done this.
          Why? Because they know its not flat, but this is the only thing some of them have.
          No scientist, previous or now has confirmed a flat earth.
          No Engineer.
          No school.
          No church.
          Not one credible source.

            There is nothing to research. There has not been anyone turned away if they wanted to do actual research.
            Also all you would need would be to charter a plane and do a fly over the Antarctica. What prevents you or anyone from doing that.
            Show any evidence where it would not be allowed.

        • Mr Sir

          My point exactly. High five to you!

  • Teb Tb

    I read the article because the beginning claimed she found proof. No proof and she fell for the flat earth video, ive seen about 20 of them. All flat earth videos make the same silly errors and of course they say NASA is a conspiracy. They all deny gravity, they deny the Focoult pendulum really works, they think it would be impossible for planes to fly east an that there is no curvature of the earth even though it is very easy to prove from earth eithout going up and looking back. They also claim that plane pilots would have to be constantly decending if they flew on earth as if gravity didnt work. My favorite is the notion that we should all fly off into space from centrepetal force at the equator. You try spinning a rope once every 24 hours round and see how it works.

            Ding dong. You’re wrong. Pizza gate IS important to me. VERY much so. So is the fact that NASA has bilked the public for billions pushing the ball earth.

            That Shia prank (which I enjoyed very much, by the way) and any other ‘proof’ of a ball earth can be done on a plane if you would just look into it, but you are too lazy.

        It would be so simple and they could prove themselves correct.
        But to date not one flat earther has ever made the attempt and they never will, because they know they will never find an edge.

        • Maggie May Lynn

          They don’t allow anyone to be able to freely go & explore on their own. They have very brief, expensive & strictly controlled guided tours to areas referred to as Antarctica. The actual outer edge of our flat earth is surrounded with an enormous ice wall that is hundreds of feet in height. Research Operation High Jump but MOST IMPORTANTLY ask urself why wud NASA need to continue these hoaxes? Clearly they have the required technology now so what keeps them from doing so? The obvious answer will also explain what’s really behind the motivation for such a great deception & its been hidden in plain sight all along.

          • D Barnes

            An Ice Wall really? So please explain what keeps you or anyone from flying over this ice wall?
            You are aware that we have the technology to fly several thousand feet in the air?
            So tell us what stops you or anyone fron chartering a plane and flying over to Antarctica and video whats on the other side of this ice wall?
            Its 2017, why havent anyone done it yet?

          • Joe G

            If Admiral Byrd never reached the firmament then it def. is not going to happen today. Its intentionally too harsh of an environment to survive the trek to reach the dome. Think about it. You can go up, down, or sideways. If you try to go up and reach the dome’s roof you have a series of obstacles. The higher up you go, the harder it is to breath and the hotter it gets. Eventually you’ll need some kind of sophisticated technology that probably doesn’t exist yet. So let’s go down. We’ll dig to China! Except the Russians proved its impossible to drill any deeper than 7-8 miles straight down. But the Earth’s core is magma, right? Sure. What’s left? Well, we can go left or right. But that’s not very easy, either. The farther out you go towards the ice wall, away from the land, the harder the journey becomes. First, you’ll have to deal with salt water. So you have to bring enough of the fresh stuff to drink. Then it will get colder and colder as you go. You’ll run into an ocean full of dangerous ice and deal with weather that is unpredictable. Even if you reach the ice wall and conquer it, you’ve still got a ways to go. There’ll be no animals to hunt for food, so be prepared for that. Gradually it’ll get darker and darker until there is no sun light. And again, the weather. So who or whatever made this environment we live in made it very challenging to say the very least to reach any boundary in any direction.

          • D Barnes

            So you’re not making any sense at all.

            1. You say we can’t go up because, “higher up you go, the harder it is to breath and the hotter it gets”, ok, but we have the technology today that it does not require a manned trip to go up. There are any number of rockets that can go up past the atmosphere and into space. But of course you don’t believe that because that would burst your theory of a dome correct.

            2. Then you say, “So let’s go down. We’ll dig to China! Except the Russians proved its impossible to drill any deeper than 7-8 miles straight down. But the Earth’s core is magma, right?

            Digging down is not a good idea, but you believe that you are on a flat earth, so what has China have to do with it then? If you truly believe that we are on a flat earth then you should have no problem digging down and finding the bottom of the earth.

            3. Then you say, “we can go left or right. But that’s not very easy, either. The farther out you go towards the ice wall, away from the land, the harder the journey becomes. First, you’ll have to deal with salt water. So you have to bring enough of the fresh stuff to drink. Then it will get colder and colder as you go. You’ll run into an ocean full of dangerous ice and deal with weather that is unpredictable. Even if you reach the ice wall and conquer it, you’ve still got a ways to go. There’ll be no animals to hunt for food, so be prepared for that. Gradually it’ll get darker and darker until there is no sun light. And again, the weather. So who or whatever made this environment we live in made it very challenging to say the very least to reach any boundary in any direction.”
            Here’s the your problem again.
            A. Salt Water, you are aware that we have ships right now sailing on salt water every day. Cruise ships, military ships, private Yachts. Cruise ships sail fro weeks without restocking, and military vassals for example sub marines operate for months at a time without surfacing. So that destroys that excuse.
            B. Darker and Darker you said, wait what happened, why would it get darker? I thought your FE Sun circled the planet, and based on every flat earth model I have seen the Sun covered Antarctica or the edge as you people claim. So why would it get darker, what happened to the Sun? But again ships today can navigate underwater, they can certainly navigate above water in the darkness.

          • Bert Novilla

            You are asking sarcastic questions. See for yourself by going to YouTube and exploring. Begin your search with Rob Skiba, jeranism, or “flat earth” itself. We don’t claim to know the true dimensions of the earth, but we DO know that NASA has lied 100% in order to keep this a secret.

          • D Barnes

            Really, you know NASA has lied? Really? So who in NASA has lied? Which department?
            And then the big question, why would they lie? If the earth was really flat, why would anyone need to lie about it.
            The Earth was calculated and known to be round before NASA ever existed, so why would they lie back then if they did?
            Then here’s the big question that FE’ers run scared from every time, and lie to keep from doing it.
            Why not or why haven’t one person or a group of people, an organization for example, let’s say the “Flat Earth Society”, Why haven’t they just do one simple thing, charter a plane, and fly over Antarctica and video the edge, take pictures. Anything that would back up their claim of a Flat Earth.
            Why are guys, like who you mentioned, making so much money from this conspiracy and none of them are making any attempts to just do a fly over the South Pole. And yes they are making money from this. They are making money from their websites, I’m sure you have seen the donate button, and they are making money on YouTube, by monetizing their videos.
            So where is all that money going to?

    • Mathematics

      I agree. NASA is real. I think they faked the moon landing to get ahead. They just did not have the technology. By end of 2018 Space X will do a fly by of the moon. With his self landing rockets we now have the ability to land on the moon for real this time. Bush Jr. wanted us to land in the moon again by 2020 which will most likely happen. And a moon base will make it easier to get to Mats.And I believe nothing about the earth’s shape until I go up there and look or find the equation to gravity.

      • Maggie May Lynn

        Can’t get past the firmament. Do the research to find out for urself bcuz it’s also described in the bible which cudve only been known by the creator & shows what’s truly behind such an elaborate hoax to fool us all.

        • D Barnes

          There is no firmanent. If you take the bible literally then you do not think for yourself.
          I asked you earlier why not just xharter a plane and do a fly over the so called ice wall, becausw you are aware that we have the technology to fly several thousand feet?
          By the way there is no provision in the Antarctica treaty that prevents you and others from forming your own scientific expedition and going to Antarctica.

    Why am I the only person who can tell for sure that the photo of this woman is totally fake ? The woman in the photo is cropped onto the picture. This entire article is fiction, so is the woman, fictional.

    The flat earth has lots of physical evidence pointing towards it being closer to the truth, and is so easy to see once you accept it is possible, which is not easy lol. Just do the water test, water would have convexity to its surface over a distance and it never does. Lots more evidence other than that but water is so real.

    You pretty much have to get over NASA being real before you even entertain flat earth. Here’s a fun video to get your eyes open and YES that photo comes DIRECTLY from NASA archives!

    So if you already question NASA, Flat Earth is actually much easier- go back to that water.

    So here I am 3 weeks after learning about flat earth, for 45 years I believed I lived on a ball. I laughed just like most here are laughing while reading my words, I would have preferred coming to my current belief sooner in life, it changes things. BIGLY lol. Please don’t believe me, investigate what I say regarding water and prove it wrong. Good luck!
