    :hello: Moon Strong & Gorsky :hello:

    You know very well on July 20, 1969, as commander of the Apollo- 11 lunar module, Neil Armstrong was the first person to set foot on the moon.

    His first words after stepping on to the moon, "that's one small step for man, one giant leap for mankind," were televised to earth and heard by millions.

    But just before he had re-entered the lander, he made an enigmatic remark "good luck, Mr. Gorsky."

    Many people at NASA, thought it was a casual remark concerning some rival soviet cosmonaut.

    However, upon checking, it was established that there was no Gorsky in either the Russian or American space programs.

    Over the years, many people questioned Armstrong as to what the - 'good luck, mr. Gorsky' statement meant, but Armstrong always just smiled away dodging answering it.

    But in 1995, he broke the secret.

    This time he had responded since the real Gorsky had already kicked the bucket, so Neil felt he could now answer the question.

    Here is the a anecdote as to "who was that Gorsky":

    When he was a kid in a small mid-western town, he was playing baseball with a friend in the backyard. His friend hit the ball, which landed in his neighbour's yard by their bedroom window.

    His neighbours were Mr. and Mrs. Gorsky. As he leaned down over the wall to pick up the ball, young Armstrong heard Mrs. Gorsky shouting at Mr. Gorsky,
    "sex! You want sex?! You'll get sex when the kid next door walks on the moon!"

    Neil armstrong's family reported to have confirmed this is a true incident.
    God - I trust you greeted when strong when he set foot on moon.
