NASA Offers to Give Steph Curry a Tour After NBA Star Says He Doesn't Believe in the Moon Landing

NBA players aren't scientific experts, as evidenced most recently by Boston Celtics player Kyrie Irving's belief that the Earth is flat. But now another NBA player is casting doubt on space expeditions, and NASA is trying to fix it.

Golden State Warriors star Steph Curry appeared on a podcast recently when somehow the topic turned to the moon landing. Curry asked the podcast hosts if they believe humans have ever been to the moon, and while it seemed to be a joke at first, he did double down and say that he doesn't believe the Apollo 11 landing happened.

NASA did not find it funny. The space agency invited Curry to take a tour of their lunar lab the next time he visits Houston, and they'll give him a guided tour proving that the moon landing was not a hoax.

"We'd love for Mr. Curry to tour the lunar lab ... perhaps the next time the Warriors are in town to play the Rockets," said NASA spokesman Allard Beutel. "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."

What's the deal with NBA players not believing in all this common knowledge space stuff? Maybe we need to change the NBA rules so that players have to stay in college for four years, or at least until they stop believing ridiculous conspiracy theories.

Few other entrepreneurs in the cannabis space have their hands in quite as many ventures as Lorne Gertner. Currently dubbed the "godfather of the Canadian cannabis industry," Gertner told Civilized, "If we could live through normalization, we could change the world." Hailing from the fashion industry, this Toronto native says he's on a mission to "make the world a better place through cannabis and design excellence." The only catch is, well, normalizing cannabis — and that's where Gertner's keen eye for style comes in. "In the old days, you were going to be different or you were going to be normal," said Thom Antonio, Gertner's friend, creative director, and collaborator of 35 years.
