Twitch streamer Brittany Alexander, otherwise known as "Kato_Kat", is a popular influencer and is widely known to be the long-term girlfriend of Twitch partner Eric "Erobb" Robbins Jr.

Late last month, Brittany left fans horrified when she outright ate a dog-sized piece of rabbit poo as part of a $1,000 challenge on Mizkif's live stream, forever earning her the title of "poop girl."

However, during a 19th February Twitch stream with fellow creator Pieceofmoo, Brittany turned heads when she revealed that she does not believe that the Moon Landing ever happened.

"I never said the Earth was flat; the only thing I said was [that] I didn't think we went to the Moon," said Brittany. Pieceofmoo then chirped in, saying, "Oh yeah, I don't think we did either [...] I really don't know."

Seemingly pleased by Pieceofmoo's validation of her eyebrow-raising commentary, Brittany told her chatters, "Alright, so you can't make fun of me anymore." Don't worry; the internet won't -- they'll just resort to taking a jab at the both of you instead.

Later in the stream, Brittany added, "It's possible that we didn't [go to the Moon]. No one knows for sure." Pieceofmoo then sarcastically asked chatters, "Yeah, were you there? No."

As you could imagine, the clip quickly surged in popularity on internet forums like Reddit. At the time of writing, the thread has accumulated over 1,700 upvotes and hundreds of comments, merely hours of being posted.

One Reddit user lambasted Brittany's comment that "no one knows for sure," writing, "I'm going to have a f*cking aneurism". At the same time, another blamed the American education system, calling it a "complete and total failure."

Of course, the Apollo 11 human-crewed Lunar landing is one of many monumental achievements by humankind that has, without any shadow of a doubt, been proven true by multiple peer-reviewed scientific sources.

However, unbeknownst to many, American astronaut Buzz Aldrin left more than just his footprints and the American flag on the Moon.

According to lunar laser expert Dr Todd Jaeger, during the Apollo 11 mission, Aldrin also left a laser reflecting panel that helped lay the foundation for satellite and GPS technologies.

In an interview with Wtop, Jaeger explained that the panels allowed scientists on Earth to shoot lasers at the Moon, which would be reflected and used to calculate the distance between the Moon and the Earth.

"It comes back, I take that round-trip time, divide by two, multiply it times the speed of light, and great I've got the distance," said Jaeger.

Since then, many other reflector modules have been deployed, and many are still used today. If you don't believe it, you can get a high-powered laser and telescope and see for yourself; however, this will set you back by at least $10 million. So do your research, Brit.
