Yes -- sorry if I went a bit OT with my reply earlier, but I feel like I must 'deny Ignorance" when someone repeats the myth that the U.S. will be
"bombing" the Moon.
They are impacting the moon with a probe, just like has been done many times before by the U.S., Russia, India, China, and Japan.
back on topic....
Even though Jonathan Gray said that millions of people heard Michael Collins taking about buildings on the Moon, it's funny how none of those
millions of people seem to be backing up Gray's assertion. You would think that if millions of people DID here that, they would remember.
I was only 4 years old during Apollo 11 (although I DO remember it watching it with my family), but my father was very, very into the Apollo missions.
Even if my father didn't hear that broadcast himself, if millions other of people would have heard Collins say that, my father would have
remembered. There is no way that would just be "shrugged off".
As I said in an earlier post, I think Collins could have just as easily have used the benign word "structure" (which is a term for natural geologic
formations often used by other Apollo astronauts), and some of the people listening (such as Mr. Gray) could have been confused, mistakenly
associating "structure" with something man-made.
