Lunar Landing Denialists Greatest Hits With Brian Eggo

Lunar Landing Denialists Greatest Hits In Collaboration with Glasgow Skeptics
19:00-20:00
£8 Adult
£4 16 & Under

Just over fifty years ago humans landed on the moon…or did we??? Yes, we did. We really did. Unfortunately we live in a time where a disturbingly large proportion of the population happily spread misinformation, distrust (real) experts, and fuel the flames of conspiracy despite overwhelming evidence to the contrary. If you delve into the unpleasant world of ‘moon landing hoax’ groups you’ll see that the same set of claims crop up time after time. So, we’re going to take an express tour through their ‘top’ items – with your help!

Brian Eggo is most definitely NOT a rocket scientist. He has however been running Glasgow Skeptics since 2015, a member of the “Skeptics In The Pub Online” team since 2020, and writes for the The Skeptic Magazine. He’s even got an entirely irrelevant degree in Engineering. When he’s not doing Skeptical activism he splits the rest of his time between a day job in training & development, parenting, and occasional sleep.
