Earlier this week Steph Cury questioned whether astronauts really landed on the moon in a guest appearance on “The Winging It” podcast.
“They’re going to come get us,” Curry said jokingly on the podcast after briefly putting out his theory. “Sorry, I don’t want to start conspiracies.”
Well, it looks as if NASA wants to come get him, or at least show him some evidence of the six moon landings between 1969 to 1972. The agency said they want to show the Golden State Warriors star point guard moonrocks, other artifacts and give him a tour to prove it.
“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,” NASA spokesman Allard Beutel told The New York Times on Monday.
“We have hundreds of pounds of moon rocks stored there and the Apollo mission control. 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.”
Curry, who has yet to respond, said his thoughts are aligned with several conspiracy theories that suggested the landing was staged. He isn’t the only NBA star with conspiracy theories running rampant. Kyrie Irving questioned whether the world was round for more than a year before finally changing his thoughts more than a year later.
