Science!

we rock, basically

Forty years ago today, an actual human being set foot on the freakin' Moon, which is so crazily awesome that I still can't quite wrap my mind around it, even though it happened years before I was born. Just to prove we weren't getting too full of ourselves, upon touching down on the Sea of Tranquillity, we managed to screw up the special quote we wanted to deliver there. Later, we would leave a plaque up there with Richard Nixon's signature on it.
