Someone Notices First Steps On The Moon Don’t Match Neil Armstrong’s Boots, Gets Destroyed With Facts

It was one small step for a man; one giant leap for mankind. On July 20, 1969, Neil Armstrong put his left foot on the Moon and creating the first human footprint there. But a new conspiracy theory has emerged, suggesting that he didn’t even wear the boots, required to take that step.

But some people weren’t convinced by it and decided to check the facts

They found that Armstrong and the other crew members did wear the Apollo/Skylab A7L suit pictured above

But they had more gear. Namely, overshoes with treaded soles

And for the record, the footprint in the other photograph isn’t even Armstrong’s, it belongs to Buzz Aldrin

The overshoes provided extra protection from rips, tears, and dust to the basic spacesuits

This X-ray was taken as a last minute check to see if there were any foreign objects that could compromise the integrity of the spacesuit during the mission

The boots left distinctive footprints that can be seen in numerous other images from the mission

And if you’re still skeptical, go to the Moon for a closer look

“The first footprints on the Moon will be there for a million years. There is no wind to blow them away”

But why the overshoes aren’t at the museum like the rest of Armstrong’s gear?

The crew left behind about 100 items on the Moon as a weight saving measure. The list includes not only TV lenses and bodily fluids, but the infamous shoes as well

People were incredibly amused to hear such a ridiculous theory
