I was a 15 year paperboy delivery papers of the firstmoon landing in July 1969
But the cost of Empire prohibits this nation from truly doing the great things it might otherwise do, and I suppose that the Space program is just one more victim of that.
No oil that thar moon.
More like the cost of cradle to grave welfare.

Apollo 16 Mission: April 16 - 27, 1972;
Charles Duke, Thomas Mattingly and John Young land in the Descartes highlands:
Duke: These devices are unbelievable. I'm not taking a gnomon up there.
Young: O.K., but man, that's going to be a steep bridge to climb.
Duke: You got - YOWEE! Man - John, I tell you this is some sight here. Tony, the blocks in Buster are covered - the bottom is covered with blocks, five meters across. Besides the blocks seem to be in a preferred orientation, northeast to southwest. They go all the way up the wall on those two sides and on the other side you can only barely see the out-cropping at about 5 percent. Ninety percent of the bottom is covered with blocks that are 50 centimeters and larger.
Capcom: Good show. Sounds like a secondary ...
Duke: Right out here ... the blue one that I described from the lunar module window is colored because it is glass coated, but underneath the glass it is crystalline ... the same texture as the Genesis Rock ... Dead on my mark.
Young: Mark. It's open.
Duke: I can't believe it!
Young: And I put that beauty in dry!
Capcom: Dover. Dover. We'll start EVA-2 immediately.
Duke: You'd better send a couple more guys up here. They'll have to try (garble).
Capcom: Sounds familiar.
Duke: Boy, I tell you, these EMUs and PLSSs are really super- fantastic!
It is obvious that the astronauts are talking in code - meant to disguise what they are referring to. The big question is why the excited cries? Can this be *merely* due to the collecting of Moon rocks, as they would have us believe? Or did they find something much more substantial, which was not meant for public knowledge?
Astronaut Conversations on the Moon
Yet, something more valuable...
Manned space flight should be to the Feds like my European vacation is to me.
Once I have all my bills paid off and can afford to waste money on the luxury of curiosity then its okay but until then I got bills to pay.
When I was delivering newspapers of the first moon landing in July 1969 (MOONWALK) headline - I had expected that by 2011 the moon would have stations on it.
You delivered papers for 15 years? Wow!
Our space program needs to emulate R2D2 more than Buck Rodgers
