Also, H-A, Vee.
I like the black and white touch. Cheers!
pff, forget Buzz. How did Mike Collins feel?
I would guess… under the circumstances, pretty lucky to BE THERE. How many OTHER Command Module pilots can you name off the top of your head?
That’s a fair point!
The astronaut does a good impression of the moon.
thanks for the shout out, duder. you’re like my fucking favorite, or whatever.
I’ve always wondered… maybe they did a coin toss or scissors/paper/rock to determine who would step on the moon first or who would plant the flag.
Neil was mission commander. Neil discussed it, Buzz said Neil should be first, changed his mind — but then Neil decided he would indeed be first. Buzz was… a little buzzed-off about it, pre-flight.
(brought to you by my reading the biography as well as a cable special that reenacted the exchange. You’re welcome!)
Don’t forget though… Neil hogged the camera afterwards, so 98% of the pics are of Buzz on the moon, not Neil! (and because of that trip, and the black covering that was given the ‘blad camera (radiation shielding & so they could tell them apart from the practice cam), the world bought into the black camera over chrome… and it still stands to this day. Only Apple could cause such a change to slow — 30 years of black, into colors… starting with the iMacs – and the cameras/phones you see today!
I know… you always wondered about that, right??
