They include serious discussions, such as one about a program alarm Armstrong and Aldrin hadn’t encountered in training, and more light-hearted exchanges like one about an oatmeal-eating contest.

  1. If NASA is to be believed, let them explain at least these 2 issues:

    2) How can there be wind on top of the moon blowing the flag?

    1) If you paid that much for a special suit like that then you can have it too.
