Fiftieth Anniversary of Moon Landing
« on: July 20, 2019, 07:18:34 AM »
Today is the 50th anniversary of the moon landing.  It's a pretty spectacular feat, which changed the world in ways that could not have been imagined, including the birth of the digital revolution.

Here is a youtube HD video of the entire landing -





and here is an interesting interview with Charles Fishman, author of One Giant Leap: The Impossible Mission That Flew Us to the Moon.

This post was composed without the aid of google, although the youtube link was searched.

And no mention of Armstrong's whispered moon words (after his famous ones) "Good luck to you Mr Anderson."

We've had a few on the forum that think the moon landing was a hoax. They say the flag was waving and that's impossible because there is no air and wind on the moon. I tell them the reason it can wave while carried is because there is no air on the moon. Imagine throwing a stick in space and it will spin over and over because there is no air to provide resistance.

We will go to land men on  the moon again because as Trump said, we are going to land men on Mars and the Moon missions will be a part of the Mars mission.

As ever, Our BillyB has his finger on the nation's pulse ...

"a parade of vice presidents — George H.W. Bush, Dan Quayle, and just this March, Mike Pence — have promised to send astronauts back to the lunar surface. Somehow it never happens. The public’s attitude toward NASA might play a big part in that — people seem to like the space agency as an idea, but don’t want to fund moon bases, according to a July C-SPAN/Ipsos poll. Only 8% of the US public wants to see a return of astronauts to the moon, that poll found."

Being a geek is seen as undesirable these days probably less so back then. Back then the Soviet Union was embarrassing the US with firstly getting the first man in space and secondly getting a strategic and technological advantage over the US with getting the first satalite in space. The US only narrowly avoided the complete set of three humiliating defeats in a row. So there was seen as a lot more need for it then. Now the situation is all a lot different.

Years ago I saw some cuts of the old Red Skelton hour.  Apparently the skits I saw were done shortly after the moon landings.   In it, a couple of moon creatures had to go to the place where the moon landings were and clean up after the astronauts.   

Has anyone seen these skits and does anyone know where I might find them, YouTube, etc?

Luckily for the US the guy who headed the Soviet space program who got Gegarin & Sputnik into space died. If he had lived longer the US would likely have been coming second place a third time.

I never heard that. Who is Mr. Anderson?

As for the famous one/s - "One small step for man. One giant leap for mankind"..is unfortunately classified as being *sexist* these days and it won't be surprising if the new order will very likely move to  legislate its eradication from our national history/archive.

Could be a different name; but, whatever the name, he and his wife lived next door to Armstrong when he was a teenager.

Do you know the story now ??

Predictable. However absurd. Thus, "...where no 'man', (in next Generation: no one) had gone before..."

Unfortunately no. May have to do some search as it pique my interest now. '69 was way before my time here. I vaguely remember the moon landing, much less the lesser and subtle side story/ies.

Mr Gorksy, surely ?

http://www.stokesentinel.co.uk/news/stoke-on-trent-news/good-luck-mr-gorsky-moon-3105192


"It turned out Armstrong had lived next door to the Gorskys as a child. One day, he was playing football in his back garden and whacked the ball into his neighbour’s yard.

As he climbed over to retrieve it, the air was suddenly split by Mr and Mrs Gorsky having an almighty row. Young Neil heard the piercing shriek of Mrs Gorsky crying out: “Sex?! You’ll get sex when the neighbour’s kid lands on the moon!”"

I just used Anderson because I couldn't remember the name most often cited.
But I thought I also recalled that the Gorsky name didn't match up with anyone either.

Anyway it was a basketball.
When Armstrong retrieved it near neighbor's window he heard the wife say:

"Oral sex you want.  I will give you oral sex when the kid next door walks on the moon."

Back in the day, I told this story dozens of times at parties, etc.

On one occasion, it went over better than ever.
I saw one of my neighbors at grocery store and asked him if he had heard that Armstrong (after 40 years or so because both neighbors were now deceaded) had finally revealed what he meant when he said: "Good luck to you Mr X."
Another man was very close and I mistakenly thought he was with my neighbor.
So I asked him the same question.
He said: You mean about the basketball?
Thus my neighbor was really hooked into the story since it was now coming from two persons.

Funny. Unfortunately, in an interview after 25 years, Neil Armstrong laid that myth to rest - supported by NASA's ground transponder crew. The words "Good Luck, Mr Gorsky!" was never found on the transcript record.

His neighbor however were in fact Jews. Having the last name 'Stein'. And according to Neil, what he said was, "" One Small Step For Man. One Giant Leap for Mr. Stein!". To this day he can't figure out how the last words were mistaken for 'mankind'. He was resigned solely to the fact during that time NASA never got enough funding for the audio/transmission sector.

Hmm

http://www.winknews.com/2019/07/20/armstrongs-famous-one-small-step-quote-explained-2/

What did Neil Armstrong really say when he took his first step on the moon?

Millions on Earth who listened to him on TV or radio heard this :

“That’s one small step for man, one giant leap for mankind.”

But after returning from space, Armstrong said that wasn’t what he had planned to say. He said there was a lost word in his famous one-liner from the moon: “That’s one small step for ‘a’ man.” It’s just that people just didn’t hear it.”
