Debunking the Moon-Landing Denialism: Soviets Were Orbiting the Moon During Apollo 11 #1668

In a recent outburst Dmitry Rogozin, former director general of Roscosmos, voiced doubts about the authenticity of the Apollo Moon landings. This denialism is gaining traction, but it’s important to note that the Russians were observing the lunar landing in real-time from the ground and even had their spacecraft, Luna 15, in orbit around the Moon during the Apollo 11 mission. The Soviets were well aware of NASA’s achievements and had backchannel discussions with the American space program to prevent interference. Rogozin’s claim that Roscosmos only offered a book by cosmonaut Alexei Leonov as evidence for the landing is misleading and dismisses the significant history of the space race. One thing is for sure until we get back on the Moon and and take pics of footsteps, there will be some that never believe it.

  1. Someone would just say that the footprints were planted during the current moon landing and then photographed. Luckily, China, India and Japan already have independently spotted the landing sites and gear left behind from their spacecrafts.
