The Lyrics

Read the paper on the Sunday, hey - oi vey
A childhood hero he had passed away - away
Some cancer nasty had drained all his strength, it said
Then the shock, it seemed to fade a ade
but sadness, sorrow, that did stay - all day
My mood was low down as Neil Armstrong was dead -

He was starman, walking on the Moon
He was my childhood hero and his death came all too soon
He was starman, walking on the Moon
He told us of the giant leap
and I think it was worthwile
Let the children muse it
Let the children choose it
Let all the children boogie

I had to write somewhere so picked this site (Am I Right?)
Hey, that's so sad so you had to sigh - sad sigh
Switch on the YouTube, we may pick him up on channel two
Look out your window, it's full moon tonight
if you can see it, it's a hearty sight
Apollo 11 - it was really a feat to do -

He was starman, walking on the Moon
He was my childhood hero and his death came all too soon
He was starman, walking on the Moon
He told us of the giant leap
and I think it was worthwile
Let the children muse it
Let the children choose it
Let all the children boogie

Na-na-na,,,

One small epitaph for you, one giant leap for ... oh dammit! RIP Neil, the unassuming spearhead of a remarkable human achievement.

Too bad that that entire generation, and its spirit of achievement, is gone forever. Those who play with their 555-G superdupersmartphones have no idea what it took to get to the point where we take space satellites for granted.

I was privileged to watch the launch of the Atlas 5 and its RBSP payload at 0805 UTC 30 Aug. Those Atlas rockets date from the US's early missile progarm, then the early parts of the space program.

You've been in the US a lot. Ever been to Kennedy Space Center? They have a Saturn V, laid horizontally and suspended, with clear panels so you can see the insides. Dwarfs a human being, This is what Armstrong and the others rode.

Quiz, without looking, of course: Do you know the name of the second man to walk on the Moon?

That one was easy. He was Edwin Aldrin, of course. For a while, Michael Collins was the loneliest man in the world. If you mean Apollo 12, the commander was Pete Conrad. A quiz reply: What was the first meal ever eaten in Moon?

Aldrin was the second in history, yes. The old joke was, "Who was the second man to break the 4-minute mile?" the implication being that no one remembers the second person to do anything. A lot of Americans couldn't have come up with Buzz Aldrin.

The first meal? Why, moon pies, of course! ;)


(US junk-food snack, so not sure if that joke plays in Finland.)

TT, close, but no cigar :) It was the communion wafer - Buzz Aldrin held a Holy Communion on Lutheran rite when Eagle had landed.
