Yep, would have been nasty to have one skid end up on a boulder.

Did not have a TV back then, so I missed it all. Was so estranged from society after just getting back that I was only peripherally aware something was going on.

Thanks to Dear Leader Obama ! And he totally shutdown the rest of the space program ! I know his tribute was pretty insulting to the late Neil Armstrong !

Us landing on the moon was the coolest thing - I just wish there would have been something cool to find there...like maybe an elephant tusk or an old phaser set on “stun”.

We should go back and paint something on it that you can see with a decent telescope.

Harnessing electricity must be a close second then...and controlling the atom can't be far behind.

Americans actually drove a car on the moon, lol. ‘nuff said.
I’m surprised they didn’t take a Harley with them.

Yo, smart guy. I will not waste my time listing the countries that have electricity and nuclear capabilities but have never put a man on the moon.

You can, by the way, add to list the ones that might do it without the aid of so much as Windows 3.11

Right along with those who deny the Apollo landings ever took place.

Oh wait — this links to proof that those DID occur.

Oops.
