What if?

Here's a response written up by Bill Safire for President Nixon if the worst should've happened - Armstrong and Aldrin became stranded on the Moon. Not particularly applicable to anything, but an interesting read. It's rhetoric like this that makes you think of a better time, when people actually gave a hoot about space exploration.

Fate has ordained that the men who went to the moon to explore in peace will stay on the moon to rest in peace. These brave men, Neil Armstrong and Edwin Aldrin, know that there is no hope for their recovery. But they also know that there is hope for mankind in their sacrifice.

I don't actually know why it faded, although I suppose it has to do with the lack of glory missions (like the Moon) and the rise of scientific missions. Surely, though, these missions make more sense, why can't people realize that.
