Neil Armstrong's quote is sexist and demeaning towards women, I will not stand for this to be honored!!!!

Why is it sexist? The only humans to ever set foot on the moon were men. Why would a woman go to the moon anyway? There are no kitchens there.

You got trolled, son....

I had heard it more like "Lets light this motherf*cking candle."

I think I'll put the amusement park over there....
 
2012-12-15 01:40:35 PM
I was thinking it would be.

"Wow this a really neat place we should......................HEY WHERE YOU GOING! YOU FORGOT ABOUT ME! COME BAAAAAAACK!

Cernan : "Let's get off."
(pause)
Schmitt: "That's what she said."

"Oh my God, what the hell is that!?!?"
 
2012-12-15 01:58:41 PM
"We'll be back soon!"
 
2012-12-15 02:00:33 PM
or, "This Space Shuttle program I heard about is really going to advance manned spaced exploration and certainly won't be such an epic failure that it's deemed a success when it doesn't kill everyone on board."

"Dammit, I locked the keys in the LEM"?
 
2012-12-15 02:24:04 PM
188:01:25 Cernan: Okay. Now, let's get off. Forget the camera. (Garbled)...

Thanks to digital audio reconstruction, we now know that the full quote is:

"Forget the camera. Take the cannoli."

"Where we're going, we don't need roads."

The "cue card" for this speech that was written down on a blank page in Cernan's wrist-mounted checklist is on display at the Kansas Cosmosphere.

I love all those guys so much. They flew a quarter of a million miles and back through the vacuum of space in a series of tin cans.

Armstrong's first words were, "I'm at the bottom of the ladder." Check it out.

He's standing on the landing pad then, technically still on the ship.

" But how did the three men who made that departure -- taking their last small steps, their last great leaps from the lunar surface -- mark that occasion? "

Well.... ONE OF THEM JUST SAT THERE IN THE COMMAND MODULE ORBITING THE MOON AND DID NOTHING.

Can we get EDUCATED writers employed at The Atlantic for a change PLEASE?
 
2012-12-15 07:41:38 PM
First words spoken after the moon landing were Buzz Aldrin saying "contact light".
 
2012-12-15 07:41:42 PM
"Opps"
 
2012-12-15 07:42:23 PM

dehehn: "Opps"


I mean "Oops"

/Oops...
 
2012-12-15 07:56:01 PM
Softly as a prayer, "Please don't blow up."
 
2012-12-15 10:03:59 PM
That's just what they WANT you to think.

I have it on good* authority that the last words spoken on the moon were "AGH! GET IT OFF ME!!!"

/* Okay, maybe not...
 
2012-12-15 10:35:25 PM
So, it was the English rendition of inshallah? Nice to know.
 
2012-12-16 02:06:33 AM
"Let's get off ..."

"I'm coming ..." ?

/how I'd imagine it.

OK, time to close the studio.

Ditto and ditto.

Of all the nifty-genius victories over the baddies in the last 40-odd years, that scene had a really awesome smackdown feeling to it.

Words pretty much repeated verbatim two months later in South Vietnam.

LETS THROW STEAMINGPILE OUT THE HATCH and watch him bounce off the step!!!
