Russian Official Proposes International Investigation Into U.S. Moon Landings. Cultural Preservation?
Russian Official Proposes International Investigation Into U.S. Moon Landings. Ingrid Burke. The Moscow Times. June 16, 2015.
Russia's Investigative Committee spokesman, Vladimir Marki, called for an international investigation to (among other things) solve the mystery of the disappearance of film footage from the original moon landing in 1969. "But all of these scientific - or perhaps cultural - artifacts are part of the legacy of humanity, and their disappearance without a trace is our common loss. An investigation will reveal what happened."
[Interesting that the political wranglings have now reached the level of historical archiving and cultural preservation.]
