Fabricating a lunar landing would probably be technologically impossible and anyway economically unnecessary, toldRIA Novosti Yury Kostitsyn.

    The man heads the Institute of Analytical Chemistry, which is directly involved in developing sensors for space and was part of the Soviet robotic study of the moon.
