Did NASA Really Send Men to the Moon? You Decide

Srila Prabhupada was convinced that NASA was not sending men to the moon in the 1960’s. Prabhupada was the only person in the world who was boldly proclaiming that, first, before NASA tried, that they could not go to the moon, and then, after they apparently went to the moon, convincing practically everyone on the planet, still Srila Prabhupada refused to accept that NASA had send men to the Moon. Why?

Of course today a very large percentage of the population is aware that NASA faked the 1960’s Apollo Moon Missions but in the 1960s almost everyone believed in science and believed in NASA. When Srila Prabhupada declared, “They have not gone to the Moon,” he was practically the only person in the world expressing that opinion.

Today there are many films documenting NASA’s fake moon missions, however they are cleverly hidden by google, so you are not likely to stumble across them, you can check out some of them with this playlist:

Prabhupada’s position created problems with some of his followers also. Some disciples left the movement, because they could not believe that scientitsts would lie to them. But Prabhupada was convinced, that “they can not go to the moon with their mechanical rockets and space ships.”

Why? Why was Prabhupada so convinced NASA was not able to send men to the moon when the whole world was believing in NASA and science?

The reason is Srila Prabhupada is completely aware of the construction and workings of the material world we find ourselves implicated in.

This material world is a prison and all the planets are prison cells. So we have been allocated to this prison cell, Earth, and we are destined to suffer here for a certain period.

We can not escape. Just like a prisoner in a maximum security jail, he can not escape. We can not escape this earth.

Of course there is a way, but that is not by using rockets or any mechanical machine. The way is by yoga, meditation. In that way we can travel to other planets as Srila Prabhupada describes in his book: Easy Journey to Other Plantes:

“Conditioned life is just like life in a prison house in this material world. A prisoner cannot freely change from one cell to another.”

“In free life one can go from one home to another home, but in prison life one cannot do that but must stay in his cell.”

“All these planets are like cells. We are trying to go to the moon, but it is not practical by mechanical means.”

“Whether we are American, Indian, Chinese or Russian, we have been given this planet to live on. We cannot leave–although there are millions and billions of planets and although we have machines by which we can–because we are conditioned by the laws of nature, God’s laws.”

“A man who is put into a certain cell cannot change at will without superior authority. Krishna says in the Bhagavad-gita that one should not try to change from one cell to another. That will not make anyone happy.

If a prisoner thinks, ‘I am in this cell–let me request the warden to change my cell, and I will be happy,’ that is a mistaken idea. One cannot be happy so long as he is within the prison walls.”

This collection of video clips provides an overview of NASA’s 1969 Apollo 11 mission. It reveals the intense political pressure on NASA to put a American on the Moon before the end of 1960s decade and reveals the extreme complexity of the Apollo missions and hints at the extremely small possibility of the mission being successfully executed.

About the Author

My first contact with a Hare Krishna was a most merciful Mataji in Oxford Street, London who sold me a "Higher Taste" cook book in 1984 while I was on holidays there. I started seriously reading Srila Prabhupada's books in Australia 1985 and by 1986 Srila Prabhupada had convinced me "Krishna is the Supreme Personality of Godhead" and "we should surrender to Krishna." I joined the Hare Krishnas in Perth, Western Australia in 1986. Since then I have been chanting Hare Krishna, Hare Krishna, Krishna Krishna, Hare Hare/ Hare Rama, Hare Rama, Rama Rama, Hare Hare, reading and distributing Srila Prabhupada's books and preaching as much as I can. That's my life and full-time occupation now really. I like it more than anything I've ever experienced before. Srila Prabhupada's books are so amazing... Even after reading them all many times they're still fresh and new. They are truly transcendental! That's it really. Now I'm just hankering to once again see the world chant Hare Krishna, dance and feast and float away in the ecstasy of Lord Caitanya's Sankirtana movement as it did in Srila Prabhupada's physical presence. Let the whole world drown in the ecstatic flood of love of Krishna!

    Back in the late 1990s, I was sure NASA had in fact landed men on the moon based mainly on what I thought to be flimsy photographic “analyses” of random folks on the internet.

    Fast forward – a few days ago, I ran across a link recommended by someone commenting on a space article I was reading (, and I couldn’t have been more surprised. The difference then and now is that now there are scientists with sophisticated arguments that go far beyond that early evidence. In addition, on that site I read that Richard Hoagland, space conspiracist, but staunch critic of moon hoaxers in the 1990s and 2000s, changed his tune!

    Hoagland: “Noticing the difference between the astronaut’s reports and the photographic record, we began to question everything … especially the validity of the TV recordings and immediately released NASA prints. It was soon clear that the orbital photography and the ground-based images simply didn’t match.”

    Wow. Hoagland used to blog in detail how moon hoaxers were wrong.

    Thanks Madhudvisa dasa for bringing attention to this interesting subject.

    • Hare Krishna Jack. Yes. There is really no intelligent person now, who has looked into the NASA’s Apollo manned moon landings and still believes they actually happened. It is not possible, to be intelligent, and to look at the subject and not realize that in the 1960s with the caveman technology they had [compared to what we have today] they were able to safely send men to the moon, drive their dune buggy around and play golf there, and bring them home. It is a false story which does not stand up in any way to any investigation.

      The real proof we did not send men to the moon multiple times successfully in the 1960s is today we can’t even send men out of low-earth orbit. What to speak of the moon, today we can’t even send men five hundred miles above the earth… Today it is impossible to do that, what to speak of a successful half a million mile round trip to the moon. Today, in 2022, it is totally impossible so obviously, in 1969, it was also impossible.

      We can put men into low-earth orbit, like the space station. But, with the current technology, we can not send people out of low-earth orbit.

      The amazing thing is Srila Prabhupada adamantly declared in the 1950’s that the Russians and Americans would not be able to send men to the moon. And then the Americans made such a show of putting men on the moon, and in the 1970s almost everyone believed them, but Srila Prabhupada did not. Prabhupada was almost the only person on the planet boldly declaring “They have not gone to the moon.”

      It was a very unpopular opinion at the time. Even among his disciples. Many disagreed and some left the movement because they could not believe that NASA could lie to them.

      So ultimately Prabhupada and Krishna have proven to be correct.

      It is not that it is impossible, interplanetary travel, it is certainly possible, but the method is different. Srila Prabhupada has written a very interesting book detailing how it is actually possible to travel to other planets. So if anyone actually wants to travel to other planets they need to read “Easy Journey to Other Planets”:

    Hare Krishna Prabhu!
    We if course are proud of Srila Prabhupada and his stand to the moon landing scam, however he wasn’t alone in the world debunking it. There was a Christian man who did exposed them quite intensely, at least one, of whom there was mentioned by one of HDG disciples who read about him in a newspaper at that time of the Mon landing propaganda back these days. It’s in in one of recorded conversations with Srila Prabhupada. This man was kind of Bible fundamentalist or a strict follower and if course his arguments weren’t finally scientific like these of Srila Prabhupada, the Person Bhagavata, but rather obscure and of a fanatical nature.

    • Yes. There were a few. There were a couple in NASA, or ex-NASA, also who were “blowing the whistle” on the fake moon landings very early on. But very very few people, in those days almost everyone believed in NASA and science, today it is very different. Now if you can find 50% of the people actually believing in NASA and science I would be very surprised.
