Nearly 50 years ago, the US achieved one of the greatest feats in the history of mankind when NASA sent people to the moon in 1969. Compromise theorists, however, claim to this day that the Americans have falsified the entire moon landing to confirm its dominance over the then Soviet Union at the height of the Cold War. Russia also seems not entirely convinced by the claims of the United States and when it sends people and robots to the moon.
The space agency of the country, Roscosmos, has previously stated that it will start building a lunar base in 2025 with the stationing of people there in 2030 or 2031.
While he was there, the head of Roscosmos, Dmitry Rogozin, said they would check the claims of America.
After landing here in NASA, Rogozin said: "We have set this goal to fly and verify whether or not they have been there."
Although Mr Rogozin's answer might have been ironic, this is not the first time that Russia has been concerned about NASA's claims.
In a 2015 article, published in the Russian newspaper Izvestia, a spokesperson for the Russian commission of inquiry, Vladimir Markin, called for an international investigation into the disappearance of filmed images of the moon landing.
He said: "We do not claim that they did not fly to the moon and simply made a film about it.
"But all of these scientific – or perhaps cultural – artefacts are part of the legacy of humanity, and their disappearance without a trace is our common loss.
"An investigation will reveal what has happened."
NASA, however, recently announced that it will return to the moon, and there will no longer be any doubt about its authenticity.
The space agency made the spectacular announcement in a seductive video and seems to be a solution to the Space Directive-1, which Donald Trump signed last year with orders for NASA to increase its efforts in physical space exploration.
One of the main goals in the document is to bring people back to the surface of the moon, and another is to lead the attack to build a station on the moon so that people can use it as a pit stop to Mars .
The plan is also to send more robot missions to the Moon study, how people can come to Mars and other worlds.
