Hollywood im Weltall: Waren wir wirklich auf dem Mond? by Thomas Eversberg

By Thomas Eversberg

Ein Jahrtausendereignis - ein technischer Triumph: Menschen waren auf dem Mond! Oder - und kann das überhaupt möglich sein? - sind wir einer Täuschung unterlegen? Einer politisch motivierten globalen Inszenierung, deren Bilder und Filme in einem Studio entstanden sind? (Aus dem Video-Trailer zum Buch)

‚Hollywood im Weltall‘ handelt von den Landungen der Amerikaner auf dem Mond - und von den seit vierzig Jahren bestehenden Zweifeln vieler Menschen, ob diese Landungen wirklich stattgefunden haben. Eversberg setzt sich mit den bekanntesten Lügen, Verschwörungstheorien und Bedrohungen auseinander und analysiert diese in vierfarbigen Detailaufnahmen und mit vielen vom Buch aus abrufbaren Filmsequenzen. Dabei geht er sowohl auf die ältesten intestine bekannten, aber auch die aktuellsten Zweifel an der Mondlandung ein - und bietet Lesern aller Altersstufen so einen spannenden Krimi aus Physik, Politik und Geschichte.

Aus dem Vorwort:

Vor einigen Jahren fragten mich einige Freunde, ob ich eigentlich an die Mondlandungen der Amerikaner in den 60er und 70er Jahren des letzten Jahrhunderts glauben würde. Über diese Frage struggle ich nicht wenig überrascht, hatte ich die Mondlandungen doch als variety gebannt verfolgt und in der Schule begeistert Raketen gemalt. Da meine Freunde aber intelligente Menschen sind, begann ich, mir die Problematik genauer anzusehen. Damals konnte ich noch nicht ahnen, dass ich mir damit einige Arbeit eingehandelt hatte; denn zwischen einer Behauptung und einer begründeten Argumentation besteht eine ziemliche Diskrepanz. So habe ich mich denn im Laufe vieler Monate mit den bekanntesten bis hin zu den aktuellsten Thesen rund um die Mondlandung auseinander gesetzt - das Ergebnis ist dieses Buch.
