Fair winds and following seas, Captain.

Damn - just 4 people alive now who have walked the Moon. Giddyup politicians ... time for the next generation of pioneers to walk the Moon again.

Edit: saw this in Reddit, made me sad:

When the call came up, he remembered where the switch was located.

SCE to AUX

Al Bean was a really down to Earth guy like most of us. He really loved to fly and we were able to see some of his trips through his paintings.

Now his paintings might get the appreciation that they already deserved for decades. :(

He looked like a nice guy..

From what I've seen on UTube, He and Armstrong are the only ones that handled Bart Sibrel's piercing interviews with intelligence.

RIP

Yeah, that is how you feed trolls the proper way. :)

Actually No.. Bart was on the mark ;)

It's just that Alan and Niel were beyond him wrt to confidential (Top Secret) information.
:thumbup:

Buzz gave the game away with his reactions..

Nope. Buzz Aldrin did it right. Fed the troll a knuckle sandwich.


I don't think so... Giving Sibrel a TLI punch might be the more entertaining solution, but I think staying as firm in your position as you keep calm is exactly that kind of boring reaction that every troll hates.
