At some point, can we just turn those cameras onto the remnants of the lunar landing and ask the skeptics how placing at least half of a lander on the moon fits into the conspiracy to fake the moon landing?
New photographs of the former Soviet Union's Lunokhod 2 rover on the moon, which is owned by an American millionaire, is causing a legal stir over who can own what on the lunar surface.
American entrepreneur Richard Garriott is a highly successful video game developer. He's also a space aficionado and the son of scientist-astronaut Owen Garriott, who flew both a Skylab 3 mission in 1973 and onboard the STS-9 space shuttle mission on Columbia in 1983.
In 1993, Richard Garriott purchased both the Soviet Union's Luna 21 lander and the Lunokhod 2 rover. The deal was struck during a Sotheby's space auction in New York.
"I think I can truly make the only private, legitimate claim to territory â€" at the very least around my rover and, potentially, along its point of travel," Garriott said, "to give me some actual property rights on the moon."
Garriott added that his assertion is somewhat tongue in cheek.
