Wellie, since we have, over the past couple of weeks, gone down many a rabbit hole, I thought I will give you something to ponder over the weekend. Here in the most glorious state of Western Australia the weather is cold and rainy, so put on your gas heater, tuck in with a Port, or a whiskey, and reflect.
All of you East coast cnuts, ha-ha!
This week marked an anniversary of the first man’s step on the Moon. Since, there have been a number of alternative facts (read conspiracy theories) that the event never took place. Now, I don’t have a dog in the hunt on either side, but I read the entire thread analysing, scientifically or not, why it couldn’t have happened.
I do hope, for the mankind, that it did take place. This was indeed a giant step for mankind (err… themkind), that hasn’t been accomplished since, when a man (they/them) set foot on a space object. This is on par with the first space flight, first space walk, the invention of polio vaccine and geometry. This is HUGE.
To boot, Russkies were in the race, it was a thing, and they only managed to land unmanned craft on the lunar surface. Chinese have managed to do it since, but no manned missions.
Without further adieu, I give you Wagging the Monndoggie.
