Dmitry Rogozincontroversial former director of the Russian Space Agency, joined the ranks of conspiracy theorists What do you think? man did not reach the moon in 1969. The official said in his official Telegram channel that before arriving at Roscosmos, he requested proof of the Apollo 11 mission. it makes no sense for NASA to accomplish such a featsince he could not repeat it in fifty years.
“About ten years ago, when I worked in the government, I sent an official request to Roskosmos for documentary evidence of Americans being on the moon,” he said. “I was painfully embarrassed by the fact that Soviet cosmonauts returning from multi-day expeditions could barely stand on their feet,” he said. Former head of the space agency I couldn’t believe Armstrong and Aldrin were moving smoothly after leaving the lunar module.
Despite his persistence, the results of the query were not as expected. Dmitry Rogozin mentioned that the agency sent him a book in which Cosmonaut Alexei Leonov confirmed landing on the moon. Leonov, who could have been the first Soviet man to walk on the moon, said that Neil Armstrong and Buzz Aldrin accomplished the feat “because they told themselves so.”
Years later, Rogozin would take control of Roscosmos and turn it into a competitive space agency. During his tenure as Director He continued to look for evidence of a flight to the moon, but found nothing.. The official said the questions only elicited criticism from scientists and colleagues for undermining “sacred cooperation with NASA” and a call to action from a senior Russian manager.
The former head of Roscosmos does not believe in the official version of the arrival on the moon
According to the conspiracy theory, NASA faked the moon landing to win the space race for the Soviet Union. Not surprisingly, such statements are made by Dmitry Rogozin, an old school patriot who seeks to restore the glory of the USSR. During his time at the head of Roskosmos, the manager was involved in various disputes, ranging from threats to kill Elon Musk to landing an astronaut on the ISS.
It is important to note that Rogozin has no doubt that Armstrong, Aldrin and Collins flew to the moonbut that they managed to land. The former head of Roskosmos accuses such individuals as Academician of the Russian Academy of Sciences Evgeny Alexandrov of US interests. Alexandrov, who promotes scientific knowledge through the Commission on Pseudoscience, lashed out at Rogozin when he asked for proof of the 2018 moon landing.
The statements of the former director of Roscosmos are consistent with his new role in the war in Ukraine. After his dismissal from Roskosmos, Rogozin left for the occupied areas of Donbass and proclaimed himself the leader of a group of volunteer fighters. At the moment, is out of office and has lost all the power he once hadalthough this does not prevent him from sharing his memories and space theories in his Telegram channel.
