Truly an astonishing achievement.


I was exactly the right age to be drawn into the Moon landing - even bought my local paper's special moon edition with my pocket money.


good man.

back when i was a skin broke wayward yute, i sent five bucks a month to the organization that carl sagan and eugene o'neill (editor of omni magazine, an early love of mine) founded. that's how sick i was.

funny, i ended up living with reap in... huntsville, alabama. ahem. i had a blast taking his dad to the space and rocket center. he was like a lil kid.

Caused by being fed up with the song.

Did the Hawkestra even do it in 2000?

No

Brock just got sick of it being requested and it being played every night.

A studio adjustment

I would be too!






In the science museum (London) they have a replica Lunar Module (full size) and many related artifacts.

Just looking at the Module captivated me.

Banned because it came out at the time of the Birmingham pub bombings iirc.

I enjoyed looking round the space centre at Houston. Well, I saw it out of the plane as we flew to Florida or Mexico, I forget which!
