Russia questions the American moon landings and shall investigate. Did America has NEVER landed on the moon? Is this all a lie? Russia has announced that they shall investigate the American moon landings.
In an opinion piece published in the Russian newspaper, Izvestia writes (the spokesman of the investigative committee of the Russian government Vladimir Markin) that such research can provide new insights into the history of space travel.
Markin wants to examine the disappearance of the original images of the moon landing in 1969 and he is keen the whereabouts of the 400 kilograms of moon rocks, which it has brought back to earth between 1969 and 1972.
“We do not claim that they do not have flown to the moon and just made a movie about it, but all these scientific and cultural artifacts are part of the heritage of mankind. They have disappeared is a shared loss. We want the research to find out what happened” wrote Markin.
In 2009, NASA admit that the original recordings of the first moon landing had been erased. 200,000 tapes were also destroyed. NASA claims to have copies of the moon landing with recordings from other sources. Which would be of better quality. Most moon stones would be stored in the Lyndon B. Johnson Space Center in Texas.
Mr Markin criticised the U.S. for launching a corruption probe into officials at football’s world governing body, Fifa.
He wrote of how American prosecutors had ‘declared themselves as supreme arbiters of international football’ adding they had ‘confused political bargaining with corruption’.
It comes after Fifa president Sepp Blatter announced he would stand down after allegations top officials took bribes in awarding the tournaments to host nations.
