50 years ago, on July 20, 1969, the NASA Apollo space flight 11 landed on the moon the first two men – Neil Armstrong and Buzz Aldrin. Armstrong became a sensation overnight by burying the American flag on the moon's surface and ending the space race with the Soviet Union. However, for more than half a century, conspiracy theories have haunted the monumental event, claiming that the mission was forged to destroy the communist revolution.
However, the famous scientist Neil deGrasse Tyson says that these statements are absurd and he can explain exactly why, using what he knows best.
During his Amazon Prime documentary "Neil DeGras Tyson Explains Everything," the American astrophysicist calculated whether the Saturn V rocket had enough fuel to fulfill its mission.
He admitted in 201
"But as an educated scientist, you can do all sorts of things.
Neil deGras Tyson calculates the moon landing possibility
Apollo 11 team that went to the moon
We can calculate what is called the rocket equation
" For example, you could look at the Saturn V rocket that took off – we have good video footage of this from multiple angles.
"And you can see how much fuel is in the rocket in all three stages, which allows you to calculate what is called the rocket equation of how long the payload of the rocket will reach. ”
Dr. Tyson sorted the numbers before handing a harsh test of the reality to the doubters.
He added: "What's in the payload? Astronauts and their tiny moon land.
"It's enough fuel to go to the moon and come back, it's enough fuel for that.

Neil DeGrasse Tyson has his own views
Tyson watched the moon land as a boy
"So where do you think they went? Local Piggly Wiggly? To get groceries? No, they were going to the moon.
"And then people say, 'Well, show me an image on the surface of the moon.'
"Well, the telescopic images are too blurred so you can't see.
However, Dr. Tyson explained in detail what the last nail in the coffin should be.
He went on: "You actually have to go to the moon, take pictures and send back the paintings.

Armstrong became a legend overnight
" So all the people I don't want to believe we went to the moon, they had to wait until we had orbit around unata and photos of the landing party
"But the people who really didn't want to believe we went to the moon said, 'Oh, these are fake.'
" So that means they already have the answer that  "The answer they want is that we did not go to the moon and nothing we will present to them is irrelevant."
He discussed several topics during the series, including what he thought was the greatest mate a threat to humanity.
It was not an asteroid, climate change, or bioterrorism.
Dr. Tyson, who hosts his own StarTalk podcast, where he explores similar topics, went on to say that people would be hindering their own chances of survival in the future.
He said: "What concerns me is that we may not be wise enough to be good shepherds of our own destiny.
"Wisdom is not just knowledge; how do you act on that knowledge?
"And how do you get knowledge of the future? This is what the whole enterprise of science is all about.
" Let's learn how things work and then when we know how they work, we can predict how they will be in the future.  "So for civilization to progress, it must know and understand how to use the information provided by the world community of scientists and technologists.
" Without no oh I can not guarantee what fate awaits us. "
