    Too bad "loon" doesn't actually etymologically descend from Latin lunaris (of the moon), or Rogozin could feel a more fitting claim to and pride in the label. Even the global-wide pool of nationalists falling out of various decolonality movements (i.e., certainly not confined to South America anymore) may jump more ardently onto the bandwagon after this. (Some Malaysian input on the matter, perhaps?)

    Former head of Roscosmos now thinks NASA did not land on the Moon

    EXCERPTS: During his four-year tenure at Roscosmos, Rogozin wrote, he asked his leadership team to look into whether NASA had actually landed ... on the Moon [...] As evidence for the landing, Rogozin claims he only received a copy of a book by cosmonaut Alexei Leonov.

    Accordingly, at the end of this "investigation," Rogozin said he does not believe Americans landed on the Moon but rather that they had succeeded in infiltrating the "establishment" of the Russian space program.

    [...] So why not just ignore this latest outburst from the mendacious Muscovite? There are two good reasons.

    One is that Rogozin is tapping into a strengthening current of Moon-landing denialism...

    Secondly, the Russians observed the lunar landing in real time from the ground—and even had a spacecraft in orbit around the Moon. Rogozin's claim that the only evidence Roscosmos could offer of the Moon landings was a book by Leonov is asinine... (MORE - missing details)
