Or a Russian (Why did they give up?)
Scott went to Antarctica, but that didn't stop people following in his footsteps.
Man climbs Everest. Many follow.
But not the Moon. The Human race has had enough by 1972. Been there, done that.
42 Years ago.
No more willing adventurers.
Makes you think...
(*conspiracy hat being worn*)
The reason is that there was nothing to be cleaned or ironed and the astronauts food came in little precooked packages.
I shall now do back to watching re-runs of Wheel Tappers and Shunters.
Buzz's face was priceless.
Perhaps we can have memories of the first landing in 1969. My mother was of the opinion that it was all a complete waste of time and money and it certainly wasn't viewed with any excitement in our house.
I can remember being more worried about going to the dentist on the Monday morning; they were absolute butchers then!
Should have started to do something about the environment back than, rather than indulge in fantasies about living on the moon.
(Though Star Trek was great!! Maybe they should have poured the money into Star Trek, the series, rather than Moon Trek)
Maybe women are simply sensible enough not to waste time on a man in or on the moon???

I loved the Apollo project.
The sense of wonder at the time was amazing and it did kind of spiritually unite (most of) mankind however briefly.
I love anything that helps us try and understand more about what we are and what this thing is that we all all living in.
Trying to understand what it's all about is never a waste of money.
400,000 people worked on Apollo so good for jobs as well.
Everything written by me is just my opinion.

Strangely enough it's been reported that that is precisely what Neil Armstrong believes@Sam S wrote:The creautures already living on the moon have told us we are not welcome. Thats why we have no base there.
