If one has studied the history and science book closely, then they should remember that we were taught that Neil Armstrong (an American man) was the first person to land on the Moon.
But there are so many conspiracy theories doing round on the Internet in which it is being claimed that United States moon landing was fake in fact they had made the video in studio, for showing the world that they are the first one to land on the moon.
There is also a theory doing round on the Internet that Russian astronaut, also popularly called cosmonauts, was the first person to land on the moon. The Russian spaceman might have beaten America in reaching on the moon first. The conspiracy theory has also claimed that the Soviet space person died because of which the Soviet government covered the mission.
The conspiracy theory that Neil Armstrong was not the first person to land on the moon also has a video backing their theory in which one can clearly see that cosmonauts have reached the moon before US Apollo 11 mission.
If the history books are to be believed, then Neil Armstrong and Buzz Aldrin landed on the moon on 20 July 1969. And they were also the first one to do so in the history of mankind.
Reportedly, the Union of Soviet Socialist Republics had reached on the moon before the United States. The Soviet Union was also the first to plan their mission to land on the lunar surface.
A popular YouTube channel 'The Unknown' has also released a video on their channel that claimed that the astronauts of The National Aeronautics and Space Administration (NASA) went to the moon and they have also found and buried the evidence that Russians were the first one to reach there.
If the reports of 'the unknown' were to be believed, then a secret clip was found in the Russian archive(secret night rocket launch). In another video, it is seen that Soviet spacecraft land on the moon they went out, after that they can be seen planting the Soviet flag. In another film, the Soviet lunar crash site is seen.
The narrator of the video said that “All that was left was wreckage and a Russian film.”
“They were first.”
The investigator of UFOs and mysteries for the Defence of the British Ministry Nick Pope had said, “If the Soviets had got there first, I have no doubt they've have trumpeted it to the world, even if their cosmonauts had subsequently died up there.”
“Having said that, I think it's possible that Soviet secrecy and caginess over failure mean we don't know everything and that some other unsuccessful missions – including ones where people died – could have been covered-up.”
