Russian Soccer Fans Are Mad So They Blame NASA

Russian Official Proposes International Investigation Into U.S. Moon Landings, Moscow Times

"Venting his frustration with what he viewed as "U.S. prosecutors having declared themselves the supreme arbiters of international football affairs," [Russia's Investigative Committee spokesman Vladimir] Markin proposed that international investigators could likewise examine some of the murkier elements of America's past. An international investigation could help solve the mystery of the disappearance of film footage from the original moon landing in 1969, or explain where the nearly 400 kilograms of lunar rock reportedly obtained during several such missions between 1969 and 1972 have been spirited away to, Markin suggested."

Russian official wants to investigate whether U.S. moon landings actually happened, Washington post

"The op-ed is unlikely to raise worries among NASA officials. In 2009, NASA itself admitted that it had erased the original video recordings of the first moon landing among 200,000 other tapes in order to save money, according to Reuters."
