Russia Vows to Verify Whether the US Actually Landed on the Moon

The head of Russia’s Roscosmos space agency has vowed to verify whether or not the United States actually landed on the moon, according to the Associated Press.

Discussing a proposed Russian mission to the moon, Dmitry Rogozin jokingly said in a Saturday video posted to Twitter:

“I answer questions of the President of Moldova: whether there were Americans on the moon… We have set this objective to fly and verify whether they’ve been there or not.” 

Rogozin was responding to a question about whether NASA actually landed on the moon almost 50 years ago.

While Rogozin’s comments may have been made in jest, in 2015 a former spokesman for the Russian Investigative Committee called for a probe into the American moon landings.

Until Russia can “verify” the moon landing, we anticipate a lively discussion on Van Allen belt radiation and laser reflectors to ensue…

While you’re here…
…We have a tiny favor to ask of you. Government think tanks have teamed up with social media companies and Google to censor independent media websites and government criticism. Despite this big tech crackdown on the free press, we have been very fortunate, and tens of thousands of people continue to read The Mind Unleashed every single day. But we need your ongoing support to keep working as we do.. And because we value open and accessible information for all, we would never hide our content behind a paywall. Unlike Fox News or CNN, our editorial independence means we set our own agenda and voice our own opinions. We are not subject to the whims of billionaire shareholders. We are editorially independent, and that makes websites like this an important part in the war for truth and justice. Hopefully we’re wrong, but without your help, we're afraid big tech companies may soon make The Mind Unleashed algorithmically disappear from the Internet. We need your support to keep delivering quality independent news. Every contribution, big or small, will go directly into funding independent journalism. Thank you. Click here to support us
