Curry has an open invite to tour Johnson Space Center.
Golden State Warriors guard Stephen Curry has an open invite to tour the lunar lab at Johnson Space Center in Houston, following his recent doubt that astronauts landed on the moon.
Curry and teammate Andre Iguodala recently made an appearance on The Ringer's "Winging It" podcast, hosted by Atlanta Hawks teammates Vince Carter and Kent Bazemore, and during their discussion - right around the 45-minute mark - Curry floated the question of whether the moon landing was real.
The quick conversation went like this:
"Curry: 'We ever been to the moon?'
Multiple responders: 'Nope.'
"Curry: 'They're gonna come get us. I don't think so, either.'"
In response to Curry's doubt, NASA says they're willing to provide Curry the evidence that will change his mind. "There’s lots of evidence NASA landed 12 American astronauts on the Moon from 1969 – 1972," spokesperson Allard Beutel says, according to TMZ Sports.
"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."
"We have hundreds of pounds of Moon rocks stored there and the Apollo mission control. During his visit, he can see first-hand 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."
Worth noting, the defending champs will next play in Houston on March 13, which is three days after they host the Suns and three days before their next game in OKC. In other words, Curry should have plenty of time to check out all the Moon rocks that Johnson Space Center has to offer.
