Dmitry Rogozin replies to question on whether NASA landed on the moon

The head of Russia’s Roscosmos space agency Dmitry Rogozin has suggested the Russian mission to the moon may involve establishing whether the United State's moon landings were faked or not, although he seemed to be making a joke.

“We have set this objective to fly and verify whether they’ve been there or not,” Dmitry Rogozin stated in a video posted Saturday on Twitter.

Rogozin was replying to a question about whether NASA landed on the moon almost 50 years ago, a subject that has been the center of many conspiracy theories, according to the Associated Press.

Rogozin smirked and shrugged when answering the question, suggesting he was perhaps joking.

The conspiracy theories circling NASA’s moon missions are popular in Russia.

Discussing a proposed Rusian 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."

The Soviet Union dropped its lunar program in the mid-1970s following the explosion of four experimental moon rockets.

Back in 2017, NASA astronaut Don Pettit claimed the space agency no longer had the resources necessary to rebuild technology it would require to send explorers "back" to the moon.

At the Space for Innovation conference at London’s Science Museum, Pettit says he hopes that the US will be able to collaborate with other countries to help make moon landing possible, saying:

"International collaboration I believe is essential for space exploration it provides robustness to the technology of exploration," he said.

"Each country has a different means of approaching the same problem and when one country's technology fails you can rely on the other countries technology to get you through that particular issue."
