John Glenn testified against the Mercury 13 to Congress declaring women unfit for spaceflight during the Apollo program heyday.

It came up.

Suck it Jeff, suck it Elon.  Those guys made it to the actual, real moon, not your imaginary dogecoin shiat, on less money and technology than it takes you to get to your kitchen.

I don't understand the poo-pooing of what they have achieved.  Musk, Bezos, Branson (in that order) have done stuff on their own dime because they wanted to.  The Apollo program (not including everything that led to that cost about 200 billion in today's dollars, which is way more than those three have spent on their ventures.
