Man on the Moon

Nixon Library

In the history of conspiracy theories, debunking the myth of whether or not man landed on the moon is one of the most controversial. But doubters take heed: the Nixon Presidential Library has just thrown another wrench into your unflappable theory with its “Man on the Moon” exhibit. Listen to the telephone call that then-President Nixon placed to Neil Armstrong when he was on the moon’s surface, see the actual phone that made the call, read Nixon’s diary entry from July 20, 1969—the day man first set foot on the orbiting rock, and more. Sure, these pieces of evidence aren’t exactly proof that Neil and Buzz walked on another world rather than just walking on a Hollywood sound stage, but believing is so much more fun.
