Many conspiracy theorists think that people have never been on the moon, because our civilization does not have technology that would allow it. The proof of this is the lack of any mission on this object for 50 years.
NASA has hundreds of photos and recordings of Apollo’s Silver Globe missions, which you’ve certainly seen in your life many times. Fans of conspiracy theories believe that all films and photos have been prepared in studios in Hollywood. Nvidia, on the occasion celebrating the 50th anniversary of the Apollo 11 mission, decided to prepare a fake recording of the Eagle’s landing and the first steps of astronauts on the moon.
“This year’s anniversary of landing on the moon, one of the greatest achievements of humanity, inspired us to radically accelerate our work while creating a demo landing on the moon, enriching them with RTX technology. A beautiful, almost cinematic presentation of one of the greatest moments in history. It’s thanks to the ray tracing that supports Nvidia RTX graphics processors, our demonstration team created an interactive visualization that depicts light and shadows in the way they actually perform, giving the scene incredible realism, “wrote Nvidia.
The company invited another man to his home on Silver Globe, that is Buzz Aldrin, to make his commentary a prepared work and said what he thinks about such techniques. The goal of Nvidia engineers was to show the latest CGI techniques and render them using RTX technology. The effect is breathtaking, but you do not have to be a specialist to see that it is just a visualization, not a real recording.
It will take many years for CGI technologies supported by artificial intelligence to generate such realistic graphics that it will be difficult for us to distinguish between fiction and reality and fool us that we are dealing with a real recording. Either way, enjoy the work of Nvidia and the cool commentary of the great astronaut who is now dreaming about Mars.
