Geoff: Yes. A shame.

As much of a shame as the plaque bearing this sentiment on the moon also bears the name "Richard Milhouse Nixon".

Karma: It was a great achievement of WILL and SCIENCE.
In a time when half the people don't believe in Global Warming,
and barely over a third believe in evolution,
We could all do with a solemn Moment of Science.

chronology
chronology: Neil Armstrong must be one of the most enigmatic Americans in history. The photographs of him on the Moon are among the most disputed photographs in the history of photography. He also had the abilities of Harry Houdini when it came to getting out of the Lunar Lander hatch wearing his Space Suite. The Suite and Back Pack were way bigger than the Hatch.

Personally I have no views on whether the 1969 landing actually happened, there are hundreds of disputed points about the Landing. But Mr Armstrong remained as silent as the LEM landing Engine was as he spoke in the seconds before touch down. Stood two feet away from the giant powerful engine, running to secure a soft touch down, you hear only Buzz Aldrin and Mr Armstrong exchanging messages with Huston.

No am not saying the Landing never happened, but one of the two men who could have answered these questions has now gone forever. R.I.P. Mr Armstrong.

chronology: Karma. What 'conspiracy'? do you know something we do not? Mr Armstrong was there, he should know what happened. As far as I can tell, Neil and Buzz were the only ones on the Moon at that time who can answer the hundreds of questions people have about the Landing. He may well have a reasonable explanation for all the questions.
