Unfortunately, the founder archarya (Srila Prabhupada) of the International Society for Krsna Consciousness (ISKON) declared on 4th Jan 1972 that the 1969 moon-landing was a hoax: The following is a transcript of a talk that He gave in Sydney (on 4/1/72):
So they never worshipped Chandra, and how can they go to the Chandra planet, or moon planet? Then Krishna is false. Krishna is imperfect. They become perfect. They are defying Krishna’s instruction. They have gone to the moon planet. Then our whole propaganda, Krishna Consciousness, becomes bogus.
In a conversation with His disciples in Perth on May 12, 1975, Srila Prabhupada again declared that it was impossible for Man to have landed on the Moon: the following is an excerpt of the conversation:
Prabhupada: They have not gone to the moon planet.
Prabhupada: Yes. It is far, far away. Their calculation is wrong. They are going to a wrong planet.
Paramahamsa: It must be the Rahu planet.
Prabhupada: Yes, or something else. Not moon planet.
Paramahamsa: How many…
Prabhupada: It is above the sun planet.
Paramahamsa: Moon planet is further?
Paramahamsa: Oh. Because they say that the moon planet is the closest planet to the earth. That is their calculation. And they say that it orbits around the earth, and then that the earth orbits the sun.
Prabhupada: All wrong. What is the… According to them, what is the distance of sun planet?
Paramahamsa: Sun planet is 93,000,000 miles.
Ganesa: They say the moon planet is only 250,000 miles.
Prabhupada: It is wrong thing.
Paramahamsa: Is their calculation for the distance of the sun wrong also?
But now we know that what the Hare Krsnas and the moon hoax conspiracy theorists have ardently and fervently believed in all these years is wrong, dreadfully wrong.
