Russia and the United States They had a rather strange and above all tense relationship for decades. The two powers compete head-to-head in different areas, and space exploration is just one of those "playgrounds." Now Russia has announced that it will check if the United States has gone to the moon.
The Cold War was fought on several fronts between the United States and Russia, and one of them was the space race. The United States and Russia competed for the conquest of space and after the Russian spacecraft were launched on the planet, the United States surprised the world with the landing of Apollo 11 in 1969.
Neil Armstrong, Buzz Aldrin and Michael Collins were the first humans to literally make their mark on the Moon, but they also sowed the seed of one of humanity's greatest conspiracies. Was it really man for the moon?
It was said that everything was an assembly and that Stanley Kubrick himself, director of 2001: Odyssey in Space, recorded the sequence on a film set. The truth is that we do not come back to the Moon because we're already out and because it's an expensive trip … and there are other fronts open, like the conquest of Mars.
Now, Russia and the United States are not in their level of relationships, as far as NASA and Roscosmos are concerned. (the two space agencies). The United States depends on Russia to take the astronauts to the International Space Station, but since the summer's incidents, the Americans have asked Musk and SpaceX to cut off relations with Russia.
Now, in a recent interview, Dmitry Rogozin, director of Roscosmos, has announced that he will organize missions to the Moon to see if Armstrong has really made its mark on the satellite.
This is what happens to the brain at zero gravity
Everything seems to be a joke, but knowing how they are spent on this agency, it is possible that we will soon see a Russian ship with astronauts going to the moon. For your body language it seems that Rogozin's jokes, but it is not the first time that, even in jest, Russia doubts the United States arrives on the moon.
However, it seems that we have forgotten the Moon, because there is a much more attractive target: Mars.
