    Thank you for sharing this photo set of the moon and Appollo missions. Man, flag and earth in one shot! (and as DC above says also the cameraman as well).

    I'd like to say, "Yeah, my buddy took this photo of me while we were out on the job site." .... but, I can't.

    Where I am?

    I think we might get back around the 60th anniversary of our first landing. That's if the budget doesn't get cut and the tree huggers don't try and stop the launches due to all the carbon and hazardous fumes generated getting the launch vehicles off the ground.

    Why do people go on about fake pictures, how could you fake going to the moon and no one ever say anything, I think those lameo's like saying controversial statements cos they got nothing better to do? Im not American and Im very proud of all those astronaut's.
