I sadly agree.

I wonder how many Americans today could name the astronauts sent to the moon on the Apollo 11 mission. Bonus points if they know that there were 3.

Extra points if they're under 50 years of age.

And then there were eight.

Unless someone gets it together, in 23 years or less, there will no longer be a living human who has been to the moon.

He wasnt the first man on the moon Russia was there before him and who knows he probably never went to the moon it was all filmed at NASA so they can say they where first when in reality Russia was.

My father worked on the LEM. I find conspiracy theorists lack of faith disturbing, and a little offensive to their memory (Mr Armstrong and my father's).

That said, I read the follow-up post and understand more the vein in which this post was made. Unfortunately I find people who try to ram their political views down other people's throats on a tech forum equally as disturbing.

Before this idiotic conversation escalates any further, the moon landing site (including the evidence of human activity) is visible, and documented, by multiple countries from space (mostly using probes that are going to, or by the moon). So unless this is an international conspiracy that includes a few nations that are not US allies, shut up.

If you do think this is some sort of international conspiracy to make it look like the US were the first and only people to get to the moon, I would just like to remind you that such an endeavor as creating this cover-up would be larger, more expensive, and more difficult to do than actually landing on the moon.

Wow, I like the conspiracy about the Russians using their satellites to relay signals from Apollo as so they "looked" like they were coming from the moon, since it contends that we didn't get there, better.

Seriously, not even one link herein about that "uncovered" video that claims to depict a NASA spacecraft with a black cover on the porthole which makes the Earth look farther away than it truly is, as part of "faking" the moon landing? I don't have the link, but I'm sure some conspiracy nut out there knows what I'm talking about. I believe it was mentioned in the "Astronauts Gone Wild" video, but I try to forget that I saw that, and I only watched it to see Buzz Aldrin punch the asshat who was hosting the video.

I'm confident that we did land on the moon. I'd say that I "believe" in the moon landing, but facts aren't "believed", they're known.

I remember the day in 1969 when he took those historical steps. Like millions of others around the world I was glued to my television set. I still get goosebumps when I think about it.

And 3 years later the world would rather watch reruns of I Love Lucy.

Reminds me of how CBS had decided to show a rerun of Hawaii 5-0 rather than the planned Romney speech.

Thanks for inspiring the hopes and dreams of the millions who follow.

An engineer, a test pilot, a fierce warrior, an astronaut, a college professor, and a business leader. A quiet man who was comfortable with what he had accomplished and determined not to show off. A remarkable symbol of the US. Godspeed.
