Some of you may recall the fun experiment that was done by the astronaut David Scott on the Moon during the Apollo 15 mission when he tested Galileo’s idea that in the absence of air resistance, a hammer and a feather would fall to the ground at the same rate.
The real question is how Stanley Kubrick faked the above Moon experiment footage, because we all know that based on his spectacular special effects work in making 2001: A Space Odyssey, he was hired by the US government to help perpetuate the hoax that humans actually went to the Moon, when nothing of the sort happened.
I can reveal how he probably did it. He must have used the NASA facility near Cleveland that has what is the world’s biggest vacuum chamber. Here we see a similar experiment done inside it with a bowling ball and feathers.
It would have been easy for Kubrick and his special effects crew to film the hammer and feather drop in that chamber and then make the image fuzzy and add moon background, the tricky rascal.
