According to reports, the head of the Russian Space Agency, ROSCOSMOS, has said that Russia will put together a mission to the moon in order to verify whether the American Moon Landing, the greatest achievement in the history of our civilization, was real.
Dmitry Rogozin responded to a question about whether Nasa’s Apollo programme actually managed to land mankind to the moon back in the 1960s and 1970s, during a conversation with the president of Moldova, Igor Dodon.
“We have set this objective to fly and verify whether they’ve been there or not”, the head of Roscosmos said with a slight sense of humor in his voice.
His answer appeared to be a joke, as he smirked and shrugged while answering.
However, conspiracies surrounding Nasa’s moon missions are common, not only in Russia but other parts of the world as well.
During the Apollo 11 mission, astronauts Neil Armstrong and Buzz Aldrin landed their Lunar Module (LM) and walked on the lunar surface, while Michael Collins remained in lunar orbit in the Command/Service Module (CSM), and all three landed safely on Earth on July 24, 1969.
Five subsequent Apollo missions also landed astronauts on the Moon, the last in December 1972. In these six spaceflights, twelve men walked on the Moon.
Since then, and despite the insistence of the United States and NASA in the truthfulness of those moon landings, there have been many who have doubted their veracity.
The Soviet Union abandoned its Moon program during the 1970s after four unsuccessful experimental moon rocket launches.
