is a [supposedly] TRUE anecdote about astronaut Neil Armstrong:
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-
the usual com traffic between him, the other astronauts and Mission
Just before he re-entered the lander, however, 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, there was
no Gorsky in either the Russian or American space programs.
Over the years many people questioned Armstrong as to what the "Good
luck Mr. Gorsky" statement meant, but Armstrong always just smiled.
On July 5, 1995 in Tampa Bay FL, while answering questions following
a speech, a reporter brought up the 26 year old question to Armstrong.
This time he finally responded. Mr. Gorsky had finally died
and so Neil Armstrong felt he could answer the question.
he was a kid, he was playing baseball with a friend in the backyard.
His friend hit a fly ball, which landed in the front of his neighbor's
bedroom windows. His neighbors were Mr. & Mrs. Gorsky.
As he leaned down to pick up the ball, young Armstrong heard Mrs.
Gorsky shouting at Mr. Gorsky,
"Sex! You want sex?! You'll get sex when the kid next
door walks on the moon!"
We all know Neil Armstrong walked on the Moon but.... did Mrs Gorsky
keep her promise?)
