FILMAKER who was punched in the face by astronaut Buzz Aldrin for saying the song about walking on the moon – says he has undeniable proof that the lunar landings were fake.
Bart Sibrel, who has been assaulted and bombarded with death threats over his research into the Apollo missions, shared photos and video footage with Sun Online, unbelievably, claims he has never walked on the moon.
'IT WAS A NEEDLESS LIE'
"This conspiracy is the most symbolic of government arrogance," he said.
"It was totally 100 cents contrived – none of it is true – yet they keep ticker tape parade for these guys and gift them doing congressional medals of honors.
" It was a needless lie really just done for no reason other than arrogance and greed. And it makes a sucker out of every American who believes it is true. "
Most shockingly, Sibrel claims to have documents from a former security guard who says he watched while NASA and the CIA filmed with the faked moon landing of 1969 at
The documents allegedly included a list of around 50 government personnel who were allowed access to the alleged fake moon landing – as well as the name of the covert operation.
Speaking ahead of the 50th anniversary of the moon landing on July 20, Sibrel, 55 , revealed his source feared for his life and as
Bizarrely, when Sibrel called the man's nearest family member earlier this month to tell them the 10-year embargo was up and he was about to go public – the relative's home was burgled and the only thing taken was the dead security guard's.
"My source was when they filmed the fake first moon landing," he said.
"I have the name of the air force base that was shot at it. I have the techniques they used to do it.

"I have the list of President Johnson's personal visitors who were allowed in the place. My source was in charge with security for the event. he got the list and gave it to me.
"He even confessed that he was responsible for killing somebody to keep it a secret.
" I called up the source's relatives a week or two ago to tell them the 10 years ago, they had broken their house
Sibrel believes in the single most compelling piece of evidence is from the pictures of the shadows on the moon – says he has experiments that prove that the pictures could only be recreated in a studio by electrical light.
He points out that NASA has been unable to send humans to the moon since 1973 – despite enormous advances in technology – and how he believes the radiation surrounding earth – known as the Van Allen ring – is too harmful for humans to ever pass through.
Sibrel also says it is suspicious that none of the lunar modules survived despite the technology being worth millions.
"Above two photographs are all the poetry that the moon missions were indeed falsified," he said.
"Not a single critic has Ever explained, in this federal government's alleged picture from the moon, how two shadows in sunlight can intersect at non-degrees from objects five feet apart from one another, when sunlit shadows should run parallel.
"EQUIPMENT WAS DESTROYED"  "Go outside yourself and see if this can ever take place in sunlight. It is completely impossible. This photograph can only be duplicated with electrical light inside of a television studio. As a filmmaker, I know
"What the United States government is claiming is that they sent astronauts one thousand times more than they can send them today, with fifty years older technology and on the very first attempt, with all of NASA containing one-millionth of the computing power of a cell phone.
"The alleged moon landings are the only technological claim in the entire history of the world that was not far exceeded fifty years later, much less even able to be duplicated at any nation on earth.
"It is the only time that such expensive technology was deliberately destroyed afterwards, only done so to hide the evidence of the fraud."
Experts have for years laughed off and dismissed conspiracy theories surrounding the moon landings Former NASA workers have explained away the odd-shaped shadows on the pictures by saying there was light from multiple sources – the sun, light reflected off the earth and light reflected off the moon – which caused the inconsistencies.

Other experts have pointed out how difficult it would be to pull off a hoax when 410,000 people worked on the Apollo mission from some 20,000 different companies.And many believe America's bitter rivals in the space race, the then-Soviet Union would have been revealed to the world the moon landing was faked if they had any suspicions – but they didn't. Yet Sibrel is adamant in his theories and believes another piece of proof is an old rule or movie he was given by the NASA archive that was mislabeled.  "DO NOT SHOW TO THE PUBLIC"  He believes he was mistakenly given the footage which he says shows the astronauts faking pictures of the earth below – when they had never left earth's orbit.
"At the beginning of the reel it says' do not show to the public ',' he said.
'Of all the footage I got from NASA over several years, this was the only unedited footage I got and it shows the astronauts making and an optical illusion that they were away from the earth when in it was just a circular window.
"And there is also a secret track of audio from the CIA prompting them to do it accurately.
" Certainly they went up in the rocket so that they could go up in front

"The picture is supposed to be the lens up against the window and the spacecraft looking at the earth from far away.
"But what they really did is the camera at the back of the spacecraft away from the window and turned out all the lights.
CIA" PROMPTED 'THEM
] And they had a photograph that they took from an unmanned probe of earth from a distance which was like a transparency or a color x-ray. They put in over the circular window so it was a backlit and it looked like planet earth.
"Then you hear NASA ask them a question and there's just a four second delay. then on the third track of audio, you'll hear somebody else – presumably the CIA – say, 'talk' and Armstrong talks.
"So if Armstrong – who was in earth orbit and not halfway to the moon – had responded right away, it would give away the fact that it was in earth orbit only 300 miles above earth – they had to create an increased radio delay. "
"Well, that's admitting that I'm right. He never said I was wrong.
" And then to say 'we are just passengers' – wait a minute they supposedly piloted the spacecraft on to the surface of the moon and he says they're just passengers? "What if I had made these two admissions on camera, threatened to sue me if I broadcast it to anybody. Why would that be necessary?" ASSASSINATION THREATS
"Another astronaut got really mad asking how dare In question this stuff and literally kicks me in the butt when my back was turned to him.
"Because of that unusual circumstance we left a wireless mic on him and when we got back to the car it was still recording. His son was talking about calling up the CIA to have me assassinated.
"Now if they really went to the moon, why would you have to call the CIA to have an investigative journalist assassinated?"
Sibrel says he made personal and public pleas to many of the astronauts involved to come forward and tell the truth – but does not expect any of them will do so.
But he plans to continue his research and is releasing a book with some of his new discoveries later this
"If Toyota claimed they ma the car will carry 50,000 miles on one gallon of gasoline, yet today their car can only go 50 miles per gallon, one-thousandth the distance, you would laugh at the obviousness of the forgery, "he said.

"If it were not for people's emotional attachment to the alleged moon landings, this fifty-year unrepeatable claim, also with only one-thousandth the distance which can be easily recognized as the fraud that it is sadly.
"And if the truth ever comes out about this, it would undoubtedly lead to a major over the federal government. "
