Apollo 11 is stranded on the moon.

Fate has ordained that the men who went to the Moon to explore in peace will stay on the Moon to rest in peace.

These brave men know there is no hope for their recovery but they also know that there is hope for mankind in their sacrifice.

These two men are laying down their lives in mankind’s most noble goal: the search for truth and understanding.

They will be mourned by their families and friends; they will be mourned by their nation; they will be mourned by the people of the world; they will be mourned by a Mother Earth that dared send two of her sons into the unknown.

In their exploration, they stirred the people of the world to feel as one; in their sacrifice, they bind more tightly the brotherhood of man.

In ancient days, men looked at stars and saw their heroes in the constellations. In modern times, we do much the same but our heroes are epic men of flesh and blood. Others will follow and surely find their way home. Man’s search will not be denied but these men were the first and they will remain the foremost in our hearts.

For every human being who looks up at the Moon in the nights to come will know that there is some corner of another world that is forever mankind.

    I watched this flick a couple weeks ago called Shadow of the Moon

    It was like interviews with astronauts in the Apollo program

    pretty much the whole program in their words filled with old footage

    amazing flick

    hopefully they had space-guns with space-bullets so they didn't have to sit around and die from space-starving-to-death

    Article fails for misquoting one of the most famous lines in American history right off the bat.

    yes, clearly leaving off the first word of the sentence, which most people forget is there in the first place, invalidates the content of the rest of the piece

    it's so obvious!

    The soundtrack was phenomenal, too. Great movie all around.

    he probably means that the quote "really" should go "one small step for a man..."

    not that that makes much of a difference

    I mean, yeah, without the "a" the quote doesn't make any sense, but that's the way everyone knows it anyway

    edit: and a quick glance at wiki leads me to believe the "a" wasn't actually said, even though he must have meant to put it in there. it certainly wasn't heard.

    he also said "...one small step for a man..."

    that little article helps a lot more with the understanding of what he meant than your quarrel with this author's decision on sentence pacing and structure.

    Also apparently the quote is "Houston we had a problem."

    There was some interference and Houston was all "what was that?"

    And it was repeated as "had a problem."

    Nasa is a bloated institution that isn't interested in much more than PR stunts like the International Space Station.

    The real question is why aren't we on the moon, harvesting all that delicious helium 3

    Simply put, we will need another cold war with some rival super power announcing that they will have that glory.


    To which we'd be all "nuh uh! Go, Nasa! I choose you!"
