Their reactions are like those of somebody who has just heard of the death of a loved one, not of somebody who has just returned from
successfully completing mans greatest triumph to date. And Im not buying 'they are just emotional' either. Its like they dont want any part of the
whole mission and are acting under duress and, in Mike Collins's case, outright fear.
Let's see how you would act if you were crammed into a tin can the size of a station wagon with two hairy men, blasted into space by a rocket that
could explode like a small nuke, spent a week experiencing the same nauseating feeling you get in a falling elevator and lived for that time in
constant fear that the least wrong move could instantly leave you to die in the inky cold blackness of space. Oh yeah, there's no bathroom or shower.
I don't know about you, but I might find all that a bit stressful.
Sure, I understand all that, but (baring in mind that they were hand picked to be able to deal with stress) all that stress is now over- theyve
finished quarantine, they are home, showered and shaved, seen their loved ones, been patted on the back by all and sundry and now, the big moment, out
in front of the worlds media and..........oh, I seemed to have wandered into a wake.
But hey, no, Im sure you are right, nothing strange about it at all
