Apollo 11 - Since I was a kid, I've always been interested in the Apollo missions and was certainly mesmerized when I watched the first man walk on the moon in July of 1969. The short story below is humorous and I thought I would share it with you.
Guaranteed to make you smile, especially since it's a true story.
When Apollo Mission Astronaut Neil Armstrong first walked on the moon, he not only gave his famous "One small step for man; one giant leap for mankind" statement, but followed it by several remarks, including the usual COM traffic between him, the other astronauts, and Mission Control. Before he re-entered the lander, he made the enigmatic remark "Good luck, Mr. Gorsky."
Many people at NASA thought it was a casual remark concerning some rival Soviet Cosmonaut. However, upon checking, [they found] there was no Gorsky in either the Russian or American space programs.
Over the years, many people have questioned him as to what the "Good luck, Mr. Gorsky" statement meant. On July 5, in Tampa Bay, FL, while answering questions following a speech, a reporter brought up the 26- year-old question to Armstrong. He finally responded. It seems that Mr. Gorsky had died and so Armstrong felt he could answer the question. When he was a kid, Neil was playing baseball with his brother in the backyard. His brother hit a fly ball which landed in front of his neighbors' bedroom window. The neighbors were Mr. and Mrs. Gorksy. As he leaned down to pick up the ball, he heard Mrs. Gorsky shouting at Mr. Gorsky, "sex? Sex you want? You'll get sex when the kid next door walks on the moon!"
Now, wasn't that a good story? I first read this story in the Professional Engineers of Ontario Mississauga Chapter Winter 2006 newsletter. They editorial content about the story in the newsletter made reference to the fact that this is a "true story". Not once, but twice! Being the (slightly) skeptical person that I am, I just had to do a google search of Neil Armstrong and Mr. Gorsky and wow, wasn't I surprised. There were thousands of references to this story, but I could not find one that said it was true. Try it yourself, search google for Neil Armstrong Mr. Gorsky
You should probably be instantly suspicious of any tale that has to tell you twice that it's true. The tale above, which originated in 1995 and garnered a good amount of media coverage, is total fiction. NASA transcripts of the '69 moon landing show no such remark and Armstrong has denied the rumor, citing that he first heard it from comedian Buddy Hackett.
What we've got here is a bit of humor combined with historical allegory that appeals on two distinct levels. First, it pokes fun at stereotypes and stigmas associated with sexual exploration (the degree of the requested sexual favor varies from telling to telling). Second, it associates a well-respected historical figure with a racy tale, thus humanizing him. Both elements are common in urban legendry.
This was fun and I enjoyed the story... even if it is an urban legend!

In the year 2005, I had searched for and found the Hollywood Sign using Google maps, the first overhead view is the sign from above, click the image to see a much larger, full size, image of the sign
On June 29th of 2006 I again searched for the Hollywood sign and once I found it, immediately I could see that google maps had improved tremendously and that the quality of the image was far superior as you can see below. All of the radio and television antenna and satellite dishes that sit atop the mountain behind the sign are very visible in the google overhead map... how times change so fast.
To see a large high definition overhead picture of the Hollywood sign below, just click the image... Enjoy!
On March 8, 2009 I searched for high resolution images of the Hollywood sign on google and found the images were about the same as the image above. I searched Yahoo maps and the image found there for the Hollywood sign is exceptionally high resolution. See the thumbnail below and click the image to see a large image. Note the incredible resolution!
This is another great view of the Hollywood sign from Live Search and what they call a birds eye view of the Hollywood sign, it's another great high resolution view of the sign. We live in an amazing world!
January 19, 2013 update - I thought I would google the Hollywood sign again to see if there was much of a difference in the resolution of the satellite images available through Google. Well, was I every surprised. See the image below, how much more resolution and clarity there is in the image. When you click the image, the original image comes up in a new window and you can see the details even more clearly. It appears that the second L is leaning a little to the right, not sure if this is distortion from the photo or if it is actually leaning over. Time will tell! Google and the internet have certainly changed and enhanced our view of the world. Can't wait to see what this sign will look like in a few years from now!
You can see some of the most amazing photos of the Biggest, Longest, Highest and Largest structures and objects that we humans have constructed.
