Steph Curry Says He Doesn't Believe Men Landed on the Moon
In response, NASA invited the basketball star to tour its lunar lab in Houston to prove otherwise.
Was Steph Curry joking when he said he doesn't believe Americans landed on the moon a half century ago?
The Golden State Warriors star appeared with teammate Andre Iguodala on the "Winging It" podcast recently, shocking everyone when he challenged the veracity of the moon landing.
“We ever been to the moon?” Curry, a two-time NBA MVP, asked. There were various murmured nos in reply.
“They’re gonna come get us,” Curry agreed. “I don’t think so, either.”
The notion that the Apollo landings were faked is an old conspiracy theory that's been around ever since Neil Armstrong and Buzz Aldrin first set foot on the moon on July 20, 1969.
Response to Curry's comments was swift, with NASA even offering to show Curry around its lunar lab to prove him wrong.
"We'd love for Mr. Curry to tour the lunar lab ... perhaps the next time the Warriors are in town to play the Rockets," NASA spokesman Allard Beutel told the New York Times.
"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."
"Steph, so much respect for you," chimed in astronaut Scott Kelly on Twitter, "but re the moon landing thing, let's talk."
There's no word from Curry on whether he plans to take NASA up on the invite, but he did reply to a CNN story about the offer with a sunglasses emoji on Twitter Tuesday afternoon.
