By throwing rocks down the gravity well, perfectly timed to hit his house from orbit?

No, they just pretended to moon him.

It was actually an elaborate mooning constructed on a sound stage in the Nevada desert.

Fark like a Barsoomian: By throwing rocks down the gravity well, perfectly timed to hit his house from orbit?


It is a dick move to use a THOR kinetic energy system to prank a fellow astronaut.

Burnin' out his fuse up there alone.

That knocking you hear on your door?  That's Buzz Aldrin about to kick your ass.  Michael Collins is out waiting in the car.

Lame.

I would have had the crew sing Happy Birthday and toast him with Tang (and a suitable Pork Product, in honor of his Senate career). Followed by a weightless pantamine re-enactment of his Mercury flight. Throw in some Marine stuff as well.

/jeez. Just him and Carpenter left

If Chris Hadfield was still up there, he'd have played "Happy Birthday" on guitar, but Youtube would have to take it down after 12 months.

ol' gormsby: If Chris Hadfield was still up there, he'd have played "Happy Birthday" on guitar, but Youtube would have to take it down after 12 months.


Uh, pardon me but Cdr Hadfield and David Bowie had an agreement between themselves concerning a particular vid, and Hadfield honoured the terms of the agreement as a gentleman should.

I recall people in the comment thread vowing they'd gank it and re-post it themselves, and so it can be found on YouTube this very day.

It does suck that Happy Birthday still has a copyright on it.

It should have been voluntarily donated to public domain because of its unusual status as a cultural artifact.

Yes, perhaps the current residents of the ISS didn't sing "Happy Birthday" for that very reason.

I make a point of remembering Collins. He always gets the shaft.
