NEIL ARMSTRONG

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 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 REENTERED THE LANDER, HE MADE THE ENIGMATIC REMARK "GOOD LUCK, MR. GORSKY."

MANY PEOPLE AT NASA THOUGH IT WAS A CASUAL REMARK CONCERNING SOME RIVAL SOVIET COSMONAUT. HOWEVER, UPON CHECKING, 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. ON JULY 5, 1995, IN TAMPA BAY, FLORIDA, WHILE ANSWERING QUESTIONS FOLLOWING A SPEECH, A REPORTER BROUGHT UP THE 26-YEAR-OLD QUESTION TO ARMSTRONG. THIS TIME HE FINALLY RESPONDED. MR. GORSKY HAD DIED, SO NEIL ARMSTRONG FELT HE COULD ANSWER THE QUESTION.

IN 1938 WHEN HE WAS A KID IN A SMALL MIDWEST TOWN, HE WAS PLAYING BASEBALL WITH A FRIEND IN THE BACKYARD.
HIS FRIEND HIT THE BALL, WHICH LANDED IN HIS NEIGHBOR'S YARD BY THE BEDROOM WINDOWS. HIS NEIGHBORS WERE MR. AND MRS. GORSKY. AS HE LEANED DOWN 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!"

Here is what they have to say.

"Comments: This whopper has been circulating for years by email and can be found on dozens of
Websites accompanied by the claim that it's "really true." But it's false, as anyone can verify by perusing the official lunar landing transcript on NASA's Apollo 11 site (audio & video clips included).

Sometimes attributed to comedian Buddy Hackett, the Gorsky tale likely began as a joke and, in the
process of being told and retold as a true story over time, ultimately earned the status of urba legend. As Professor Brunvand says, "The truth never stands in the way of a good story." In spite of the ease with which this one is debunked, it's so much fun to tell that it will surely still be with us decades hence"

Vern, yes the humor is great and is a story well worth repeating. I read an article about urban legends in Physiological Today back in 1982 and I became interested in them. I found that I could pick them out fairly easily. With the advent of the internet I learned how to verify the validity of the stories and learn how they came about. I am very skeptical and often offend people by this trait; I hope I did not do this to you and if I did I apologize.

I have held my Armature Ticket since 1984. My brothers N5UXV (Charlie) and K8VDU (Fred) were my Elmer’s. I have found that my interest in radio comes and go. I like to try the new modes which seem to come out everyday now then move on. I enjoy the radios very much.

Talking honey, guess what?

I laughed my butt off when I first heard that. Imagine what Mr. Gorsky was thinking as he watched the moonwalk on tv with his wife waiting in the bedroom, if she did'nt divorce him by then.

Talking Grins

Jim, not at all offended...

But at the top of a list is"

The only thing in life that really offends me is someone who's berating someone unable to defend him or herself.


Thanks for pointing that out..I still get a chuckle out of it..In that vein, it's a cute story..
ciao
