NASA has a message for one of the NBA’s shooting stars: the moon landing was real.
During a recent podcast appearance, Steph Curry revealed that he did not believe the United States had landed on the moon in 1969 or anytime thereafter.
Luckily for Curry – one of SI’s 2018 Sportspersons of the Year – NASA took notice of his comments and is offering to set him straight.
NASA spokesman Allard Beutel said “there’s lots of evidence” that the space agency landed 12 American astronauts on the moon from 1969 to 1972.
“We’d love for Mr. Curry to tour the lunar lab at our Johnson Space Center in Houston, perhaps the next time the Warriors are in town to play the Rockets,” Beutel said. “We have hundreds of pounds of moon rocks stored there, and the Apollo mission control. During his visit, he can see firsthand what we did 50 years ago, as well as what we’re doing now to go back to the moon in the coming years, but this time to stay.”
The Warriors will be in Houston in March … stay tuned.
NASA is currently working on plans for another piloted mission to the moon in the future following a request from President Trump.Read the full story at The New York Times
