Not walking on the moon

40 years ago today the first men walked on the moon. Or did they? The conspiracy theorists will tell you it was all a hoax, and that Capricorn One was so close to the mark that they had to change the premise of the film from a faked mission to the moon to a faked mission to Mars.

Personally I feel sorry for the guy who had to stay in the command module, so never got to walk on the moon. So let's celebrate the 40th anniverary of Michael Collins' great sacrifice.


  1. Occupational hazard I guess that when you said Michael Collins my first thought was of the Irish IRB leader! To my knowledge he never went to the moon... Or to Pinewood studios where it was staged ;o)


  2. Oh ye of little faith!
