Golden State Warriors superstar Stephen Curry finally opened up about his controversial moon landing denial, saying it was all a joke. However, the two-time MVP added that he'll happily accept NASA's invitation to tour the lunar lab in Houston.

"One thousand percent," Curry said on Wednesday when asked about accepting the invite, according to ESPN's Nick Friedell.

"One thousand percent. Obviously I was joking when I was talking on the podcast. I was silently protesting how stupid it was that people actually took that quote and made it law as, 'Oh my God, he's a fake moon landing truther,' whatever you want to call it, yada, yada, yada. So I was silently protesting that part about it, how the story took a life of its own.

"But in terms of the reaction that I've gotten, I am definitely going to take (NASA) up on their offer. I am going to educate myself firsthand on everything that NASA has done and shine a light on their tremendous work over the years. And hopefully people understand that education is power, informing yourself is power."

The sharpshooting point guard joined Atlanta Hawks guards Vince Carter and Kent Bazemore on the "Winging It" podcast on Monday. That's when Curry asked, "We ever been to the moon?"

After multiple denials, Curry added, "I don't think so either."

Curry was quick to clarify his comments, and now he won't be put in the same category as Boston Celtics star Kyrie Irving, who claimed he believed the world is flat before later apologizing for those remarks.
