Ex Russian Space Boss Says There’s No Proof Americans Went to the Moon in 1969
And, us flat earthers know why! This, of course, applies to all Moon “landings.”
Dmitry Rogozin, the former head of Russia’s Roscosmos space agency, expressed scepticism on the validity of the US Apollo 11 mission’s 1969 Moon landing, stating he had not yet seen convincing evidence.
Rogozin claimed in a post on his Telegram channel on Sunday that he started his personal search for the truth “about ten years ago” while still employed by the Russian government. He claimed that he developed doubts about the Americans landing on the Moon after observing how rested the Apollo 11 crew appeared in comparison to the exhausted Soviet cosmonauts who had just returned from their missions.
Rogozin claimed to have asked Roscosmos for proof at the time. All he got in return was a book that detailed Soviet cosmonaut Aleksey Leonov’s conversation with American astronauts, during which they revealed to him that they had visited the Moon.
The former official said that after being named head of Roscosmos in 2018, he kept up his efforts. Rogozin, however, claims that he was not given any supporting documentation. Instead, he claimed that a number of anonymous academics harshly criticised him for damaging the “sacred cooperation with NASA.”
Another claim made by the former head of Roscosmos was that he had “received an angry phone call from a top-ranking official” who allegedly accused him of disrupting international relations.

In his last statement, Rogozin said that despite the enormous advancement in technology since the late 1960s, he still finds it hard to believe that the US was once able to accomplish the feat but is now unable to.
However, he asserts that he discovered that Washington had “its people in [the Russian] establishment.”
