      What actual ‘debate’ is there about the 1969 Apollo mission? Is it like the ‘debate’ about the earth being a sphere or the ‘debate’ about Elvis being alive still?

      All the footage, data, reports and anecdotes ingested last week indicated no debate. Perhaps it only exists on the dark side with Elvis and Prince Philip.

        There looks to be a debate on the Saturday Papers comments…..

        Anyway, my main point is, it’s 60 years since the “First Moon Landing” not 50 as on the stamp above, and that’s a bigger cock-up than a mis-spelling.

      My 8 year old nephew started full on arguing about this the other day, that the Russians were the first, 20 years before the Yanks. Where did he get this idea? Youtube. He was adamant that it happened. I nearly gave him a box.
