10 Wild Space Conspiracies
It can be tough to separate the kooks from the clever clogs, but once in a while, those crazy conspiracies hit the nail right on the head. We used to think the world was flat and we were wrong. So who’s to say we’re alone in the universe?
The Men in Black, UFOs and Earth’s imminent threat from catastrophic solar flares are all space theories we are familiar with, but there are still plenty of others out there for us to discover.
These conspiracies come in all shapes and sizes, with some seemingly a little too far-out and fantastical, whilst others feel uncomfortably close to the truth. There’s the ongoing dispute about whether or not NASA forfeited actual space exploration with a lunar landing for a soundstage and a pat on the back. Then there are questions being raised, like are shooting stars really alien vessels? and was Mars once inhabited, before becoming a nuclear wasteland?
One particularly intriguing conspiracy is the age-old science versus religion debate, which suggests that science was actually behind the most significant biblical events. Floods, fires, plagues – all courtesy of the cosmos, according to Velikovsky.
Of course, these conspiracies are just a small sample of what’s out there. Check out our gallery for more, and think a little deeper next time you look up…
