If you believed they put a man on the moon

Tomorrow marks the 40th anniversary of the Apollo 11 mission's landing on the moon. I was just nine years old at the time but I followed the mission avidly right up to those famous words of Neil Armstrong as he placed his feet on the lunar surface.

There is speculation that President Obama is thinking of reviving the American Space Programme and funding more trips to the moon. In the meantime there are some who believe that they have proof that the first moon landing was a fake.
It would be interesting if they do start Moon Missions again, apparently there's plenty of Helium Three on the dark side, which could be harvested and used in Fusion Reactors; unfortunately, we haven't managed to get a fusion reactor to work for more than a few seconds.....
Cheddar, Swiss, Munster, Helium...unless there is oil- for the time being the moon is what it supposed to be, a beautiful reminder of how insignificant we all are in the grand scheme
