After NBA superstar Steph Curry expressed doubt man ever landed on the moon, NASA has offered the Golden State Warriors guard a tour of one of its lunar labs to prove to him it indeed happened, CNN reported Tuesday.
"There's lots of evidence NASA landed 12 American astronauts on the Moon from 1969-1972," NASA spokesman Allard Beutel said in a statement. "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.
"We have hundreds of pounds of Moon rocks stored there, and the Apollo mission control. During his visit, he can see first-hand 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."
In addition to all the evidence provided by the United States, NASA pointed out "the Apollo missions were independently tracked by England and Russia," emphasizing "In the midst of a heated space race, the Russians would have called our bluff if the landings had not actually happened," NBC News reported.
Curry brought up his skepticism about the moon landings when he and his teammate Andre Iguodala were guests on the NBA-focused podcast "Winging It," saying he did not think they happened.
