One small step for (a) man.
The Wail tried the old “sham” quote on today before admitting the context – that it wasn’t nearly as clockwork as they made out.
I also saw the footage of Aldrin punching someone about whether they’d actually gone to the moon.
Did they go? I’m quite line ball about it, 50/50.
I’ve an idea to put. The imperative was to win the space race, right? The promise had t be fulfilled no matter what.
You’re in Kennedy’s enclave in 1961, say, he asks for any ideas. Someone comes up with Kubrik. Kennedy thinks let’s have that as a fallback, a failsafe but we’ll try it for real as well.
Therefore, though some footage is fake, the better shots, the actual event occurred. How does that fly?
Another – they knew the tech was not available on time … so they borrowed some.
