Neil Alden Armstrong, born (August 5, 1930 – August 25, 2012) was an aerospace engineer, naval aviator, test pilot, university professor, astronaut and most famously known as the first person to set foot on our Moon.
Although many ill informed people question the truth behind the moon landings, there is in fact, one rumour that has been widely shared, but in reality, never happened.
We will still share this story, not because it is true, but because it is funny.
The urban legend of Mr Gorski...
When Apollo Astronaut Neil Armstrong prepared to depart the lunar surface after a successful moon walk, and just before he re-entered the lander, 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, [they found] there was no Gorsky in either the Russian or American space programs.
Over the years, many people have questioned him as to what the "Good luck, Mr. Gorsky" statement meant. On July 5, in Tampa Bay, FL, while answering questions following a speech, a reporter brought up the 26- year-old question to Armstrong. He finally responded. It seems that Mr. Gorsky had died and so Armstrong felt he could answer the question.
When he was a kid, Neil was playing baseball with his brother in the backyard. His brother hit a fly ball which landed in front of his neighbors' bedroom window. The neighbors were Mr. and Mrs. Gorsky. As he leaned down to pick up the ball, he heard Mrs. Gorsky shouting at Mr. Gorsky, "Oral sex? Oral sex you want?
You'll get oral sex when the kid next door walks on the moon!!"
