When Neil Armstrong and Buzz Aldrin two astronauts stepped their foot on the lunar surface on July 20, 1969, it was a historic moment for all mankind. As Armstrong rightly put it, "one small step for man, one giant leap for mankind." And as Apollo 11, the first lunar mission completed its 50th anniversary, it was once again a momentous occasion to relive and look back at the mission. But there are people and conspiracy theorists who have serious doubts about the moon landing and term it as fake. A documentary filmmaker and conspiracy theorist who told Buzz Aldrin, that the moon landing mission was fake, got a punch in his face by agitated Aldrin. The video of the old incident was shared on social media and is now going viral.

Neil Armstrong and Buzz Aldrin along with module pilot Michael Collins were the members of Apollo 11, the first spaceflight that landed on the moon in the year 1969. On July 20, 2019, the mission completed 50 years and the greatest achievement was marked in several ways across the globe.
While science lauds this achievement, there are some who have major doubts on the moon landing and call it a staged event by the US. Among them is filmmaker Bart Sibrel who faced Aldrin and called him a liar, coward and a thief. He questioned Aldrin and asked him to swear on the Bible if he really walked on the moon. While Aldrin tried his best to avoid and told him to get out, Sibrel did not relent. Aldrin then launched a punch on Bart Sibrel, an incident that is still recalled today.

While the incident is almost a decade old, people are happy that Buzz did hit Bart Sibrel. This matter had ended up in court after Sibrel pressed charges of assault against Aldrin. The charges were dropped when the Los Angeles County District Attorney’s office said that the video clearly shows that Sibrel instigated the encounter.
