Astronaut-minister explains moon landings to Iker Casillas
27 July 2018 @ 12:50

EX-ASTRONAUT and science minister Pedro Duque has explained to former Real Madrid goalkeeper Iker Casillas about how the moon landing happened after he commented on Twitter that it was just a set-up in a film studio.

So far, the goalkeeper – who is now based in Oporto, Portugal – has received over 310,000 replies after launching a straw poll on his social media site.

Duque, who became every school child's hero in 2003 when footage of him floating in zero gravity graced their TV screens, added his own reply.

“The facts won't change, whatever people believe,” wrote the minister, who spent 19 days in space, of which 10 were on board the International Space Station.

“The apparatus they took with them, the footprints, the laser reflectors will still always be there. The photo which awakened the sense of conservation of the earth will continue to exist.”
