“But despite a seven year stint at Rocketdyne, the firm that built the main propulsion units for Apollo, I could not work up the least bit of interest in the entire astrophysical circus…not even to the extent of reading an article or watching the most exciting moments on the boob tube. Why, I wondered.”
“MOON LANDING WAS A HOAX! WE NEVER WENT! DUH!”
–Weekly World News
The “incredibly short bio” of William Charles Kaysing (1922-2005) is, simply, he’s considered the “father” of the “Moon Hoax” theory (not to be confused with The Great Moon Hoax of 1835). Yes, before the work of such luminaries of the fringe as Jay Weidner (Kubrick’s Odyssey) and Dave McGowan (Wagging The Moondoggie) there was former Rocketdyne employee Kaysing’s 1976 self-published book, We Never Went to the Moon: America’s Thirty Billion Dollar Swindle.
But, per the ambling-rambling rhythm of these missives to you dear reader, we’re not going to begin with Kaysing. Instead, we are going to begin with the woman I have dubbed “Conspiracy Housewife.”
