Apollo 11 on the Moon: 40 years

A physics blog like this one can't forget about the special moment 40 years ago when Apollo 11 landed on the Moon.

You shouldn't be surprised that we're remembering this story of our fellow global warming denier, Buzz Aldrin.

And you shouldn't be shocked that a Czech blog like mine chose the same music background as Aldrin's colleague and ex-boss, Neil Armstrong, who cleverly took Antonín Dvořák's "New World Symphony" with him to the new world. ;-)

So this was the music that accompanied this unusually modest astronaut during his small steps for a man that were big for the mankind. When we discuss the Czech music in outer space, let's recall that Jaromír Vejvoda's Beer Barrel Polka was played in Discovery the space shuttle in 1995.

Times have changed: we live in a pretty sad world. Joseph Romm, a global warming fanatic, urges the U.S. politicians to euthanize the space research because everyone is obliged to fight against climate change, a law of Nature, all the time. Fortunately, most readers of his text disagree with him. But weeds like Romm have already contaminated most of the Western Academia and similar institutions.

More entertainingly, the same Mr Romm has used moonwalker Jack Schmitt as an ally to attack climate skeptics. Romm failed to realize that Schmitt is a skeptic, too.
