CHINESE LUNAR ROVER FINDS NO EVIDENCE OF AMERICAN MOON LANDINGS
Beijing | Top officials of the Chinese Space Program have come out this week and expressed their skepticism that the American Moon landings ever happened, reports the Beijing Daily Express.
More than 2,000 high-ranking officials of the Chinese Communist Party have signed a petition this week asking explanations from the American government concerning the American Moon landings after doubts arose that the Apollo Moon landings ever happened.
Did a Chinese Lunar Rover Find No Evidence of American Moon Landings?
On 4 January 2019, the World News Daily Report (WNDR) published a recycled version of an earlier article reporting that a Chinese lunar rover had found no evidence of American moon landings. The new version contained contemporaneous references to the Chinese Chang’e-4 spacecraft’s making the first ever soft landing on the far side of the moon:
“Top officials of the Chinese Space Program have come out this week and expressed their skepticism that the American Moon landings ever happened, reports the Beijing Daily Express.....”
The WNDR article was not factual, of course. It was just a bit of junk news playing on the long-running conspiracy theory holding that the six U.S. manned lunar landings which took place from 1969-72 were all faked.
WNDR’s disclaimer notes that the site’s content is “satirical” and “fictional” in nature.
