(MOSCOW) — the head of Russia’s Roscosmos space agency has said that a planned Russian mission to the moon are going to be tasked with verifying that the american NASA moon landings were real, though he seemed to be making a joke.
We have set this objective to fly and verify whether they have been there or not, said Dmitry Rogozin during a video posted Saturday on Twitter.
Rogozin was responding to a question about whether or not NASA really landed on the moon nearly fifty years ago.
He seemed to be humorous , as he smirked and shrugged while answering. however conspiracies surrounding NASA’s moon missions are common in Russia.
The Soviet Union abandoned its lunar program in the mid-1970s once four experimental moon rockets exploded.
