You finally couldn't resist an appearance, could you?
It may have done nothing for you, but all us Yank-loving Capitalists felt immensely proud and happy to witness man's conquest of space.
"man's conquest of space". i hope that's not a sentence you originally made. only americans could come up with such pompous ideas!
But seriously, the moon landing is just a part of the whole space programme, including the satellites that now allow you to read politically correct news sources from around the world within milliseconds. If you have a television, computer or mobile phone, then you are a beneficiary.
i thought of that possibility but while it's true that the satellites and stuff are evidently linked to the whole space programme in general, i'm not sure if they're specifically linked to the moon landing in particular.
but seriously on my part too, i don't wanna play the cynic part. i have far less problems with gvts spending their fat stacks in space ships than in war ships. all in all, there have been a lot of advances related to both fields but the space programmes have more commendable goals.
as for armstrong, i don't know anything about him other than the fact that he was the first man on the moon. I hope he rests in peace. in the words of buffy sainte marie, who managed to compose one of the most beautiful songs of the XXth century, i can say this:
off into outter space you go my friends
we wish you bon voyage
and when you get there we will welcome you
and still you'd wonder at it all
