Fact Check:

A picture story in circulation online purports to show Moon Footprints of Neil Armstrong Don’t Match His Spacesuit in Museum. Some conspiracy theorists in fact showed it as a ‘proof’ to suggest NASA moon landing was staged. So, let us check if the claim is true or false.

Neil Armstrong’s Moon Footprints Don’t Match His Spacesuit?

The story carries two pictures, one shows Neil Armstrong’s astronaut suit preserved in a museum, and the other a footprint on the Moon. It in fact shows Neil Armstrong’s Apollo 11 Spacesuit once sent to National Museum of Natural History for a CT scan. Nonetheless, the picture showing footprint on Moon is not of Neil Armstrong, it belongs to another fellow astronaut Buzz Aldrin. Unlike it, a picture showing first footprints of Neil Armstrong on the Moon can be seen below.

Coming to the disparity between Spacesuit and the footprints, both Neil Armstrong and Buzz Aldrin were actually wearing Overshoes before stepping onto the moon’s surface. Same can be confirmed from the pictures below.

So, the claim that Footprints of Neil Armstrong on Moon Don’t Match his Spacesuit is a hoax.

Hoax or Fact:

Hoax.
