Rogozin: Were the Americans on the moon? We will check

On November 24, 2018, President of the Republic of Moldova Igor Dodon visited the Russian Space Systems holding (part of Roskosmos), where he got acquainted with the latest Russian developments and technology. He was accompanied by the head of the state-owned corporation Roscosmos, Dmitry Rogozin, and the general director of the RCC, Andrei Tyulin.

After that, at an impromptu press conference, Dmitry Rogozin, answering a question, said that the Russians would fly to the moon to check if the Americans were there. You can verify this in the video below from 09:20.

We set this task - to fly to check whether they were or were not. They say they were, we will check

- said Rogozin.

Rogozin emphasized that he has a good relationship with his American counterpart, who heads NASA. Then he specified that to date, no country in the world can independently implement the lunar program. So the head of Roskosmos hopes for cooperation with the Americans in this matter.

This information is of interest because it is somewhat different from the one that Rogozin voiced four years ago (in April 2014). Then he reported in "Russian newspaper"While in the position of Deputy Prime Minister of the Government, Russia faces three strategic tasks in the space sector.

The expansion of our presence in low Earth orbits and the transition from their development to use; exploration with subsequent colonization of the moon and the lunar space; preparation and start of the exploration of Mars and other objects of the solar system

- Rogozin said and summed up that Russia is going to independently come to the moon forever.

Moreover, more recently, the head of Roskosmos had claims against the Americans, about which we in detail informed. In addition, in November 2018, Roscosmos announced a state program dedicated to the exploration of the moon. They say that its implementation will require several hundred billion rubles. The program itself is not yet available, but it is promised that it will appear soon. But it is already known that, according to the forecast of the general designer of the manned systems Yevgeny Mikrin, the first landing of Russian astronauts on the moon is possible no earlier than 2030.

In any case, we will be waiting with undisguised interest for the moment when the Russian cosmonauts will visit the moon to check whether the Americans were there or not. To finally put an end to the debate on this issue that has been going on for two decades, without any visible result. After all, there is an opinion that the video evidence of the lunar expeditions of the Americans were falsified.

It is an amazing fact why, at the height of the Cold War, the leadership of the USSR was silent on this matter. In 1969, when the Americans officially landed on the moon, and then flew there 12 times, the Soviet Union already had the appropriate means of control and observation. There were even spacecraft and moon rovers. But Leonid Brezhnev and Yuri Andropov, it is simply impossible to suspect sympathy for the United States.

    Remember how the first American colonists three hundred years ago piled up their allotments in North America, but for some reason now, being the "discoverers" of the lunar expanses, the Americans did not even hint about it, and they would have done it all unchanged, and with great pomp to the whole world. And this fact also suggests that they have NEVER been on the Moon, which was what Stanley Kubrick, the direct creator of the fake about the American landing on the Moon, said before his murder. With the technologies of the 60s of the last century that were then, there was nothing to say about any lunar landing, especially since on the way to the moon there was and is an insurmountable factor-radiation belt of Van Allen, which no living creature can pass ... So how could the Yankees on a rocket made of thin foil do such a journey, landing on the moon there as many as 6 times, and returning to earth as many times? And how did they undock their lunar lander from their Saturn, landed on the moon, and then, having ridden on the moon on their lunar bikes and taking pictures, somehow lifted the same lunar module, flew up to Saturn on it, docked with it, as if not in 400x thousand kilometers from the ground, but as in their own garden, both happy and contented flew to the ground, where they left the descent vehicle on their own. Only with the astronauts something was wrong, some of them suddenly died, some then he died in an accident, someone went crazy, and all this happened after they began to say something about their "flights" .... So the Yankees have NEVER been on the moon, they made a fly-over, and then in unmanned mode , and could drop their beacons and electronic mirrors there, for the "reliability" of their stay there.

      It was necessary to study normally at school, then they would have had sufficient knowledge to understand that it is impossible to stage a flight to the moon. Only this is not easy for everyone to understand. By the way, an interesting fact: it turns out the number of people who believe that the Earth is flat, that the USA did not fly to the moon, that the USA themselves blew up skyscrapers — the twin almost coincide. Soviet space objects tracking stations could practically track them at a distance of 30 million km; these stations were built in the early 1960s. As you know, the distance to the Moon is 380 thousand km, and from where the radio signal comes from, at this distance the position of the object was determined with an accuracy of 10 cm. All this knowledge is easy to obtain in free print, in modern physics textbooks, grades 9-10 there are all this too .

    Check that he will not be at his own expense, but at the state, alas.
    He does not believe not in the President, nor in the cosmonauts of the USSR.

    One plus - it will be very soon, and there a new noodle on the ears will appear. (10-15 years ago, a flight to the moon in Roscosmos was promised just now)

    In "Roskosmos" called the statement of the head of the state corporation Dmitry Rogozin about the landing of American astronauts on the moon as a joke. This was reported by RIA Novosti with reference to the press service of the company. 
    Cosmonaut Pavel Vinogradov said that the Americans’ stay on the moon in 1969 does not require verification, since there is enough evidence, evidence has been reported. 
    As such evidence, he proposed to listen to the talks of astronauts who had launched on Saturn 5, to see telemetric information from the moon, and pictures of Chinese stations. 
    “There are pictures of the Americans landing on the satellite, there are modules. What else can you talk about? ”, Vinogradov believes. 
    He also suggested that the decree of the head of Roscosmos Dmitry Rogozin to verify the fact of the landing of the Americans on the moon was a joke, and noted that it was “his right”. 
    “To prove that stupidity is stupidity is the most ungrateful thing,” said Vinogradov.
