A viking ship appears on the horizon, a likeness of Loretta Lynn carved into its bow. Rare birds flock together to sing Francoise Hardy as soul hits. A sunset of blips and bleeps fills the air.

Right wing Bible-thumpers commit the sin of Pride. They simply cannot conceive of a world without their own oh-so-terribly-precious existence. Thus (at one end) literal Bible interpretation and creationism, and (at the other end) Judgment Day and the end of Earthly existence. Dickheads. Screw 'em all. Pardon my rant.
  Tue. 8/28/12 9:41am still b/p:

Hope your day is OK, Cecile.

Sister Maria Cordis introduced Big Bang theory and a degree of evolution explanation in 4th grade....'67 -'68. Also had us do a paper on MLK's Peace Prize, I think, and had damp eyes the day RFK was killed. I don't think she remained a nun. If she had, she'd be among the ones in trouble currently, I'm sure, for rogue behaviors and doctrinal uppityness.
  Tue. 8/28/12 9:43am Cecile:

Sbp, I know!!! It's a mess now.

I also grew up the old Republican party, and back then they LOVED science.
  Tue. 8/28/12 9:43am Melody:

Sounds like nuns are a lot more socially liberal than most of the Catholic establishment. Apparently the Vatican is trying to bring them back into the fold, so to speak.

Intelligent design does exist, just look at genetically modified foods. Their evolution was manipulated by a higher being, us. On the other hand, if people are part of nature, then things that we force to evolve in a certain direction would still be undergoing natural selection.
  Tue. 8/28/12 9:46am ausmanx:

i find all this quite weird. don't know what people in other countries found, but armstrong's death was a footnote of little significance here. one really gets the impression that it's been an American media obsession, which sounds as though it's being manipulated to foster American nationalism at a time when perhaps they need it, with an election on the way...
  Tue. 8/28/12 9:46am Cecile:

hahahah, pierre.

Melody, it depends on the order. But the orders that tend to be out there in the world are often both pragmatic and compassionate. On the other hand, they can be the most humorless and cruel enforcers of official doctrine.
  Tue. 8/28/12 9:47am Cecile:

ausmanx, armstrong was genuinuely loved here.
  Tue. 8/28/12 9:49am ausmanx:

cecile, the most loved people in most countries are loved for nationalistic reasons, no?
  Tue. 8/28/12 9:49am Cecile:

people of all walks of life and beliefs were moved by the moon landing. Where the space program and the nation went afterward is another story, but it was a unique uniting moment.
  Tue. 8/28/12 9:51am Cecile:

People can be loved by millions for lots of reasons:
embodying rebellion or resisitance
embodying a nation
just being funny or talented or smart and being appreciated by a large group.
  Tue. 8/28/12 9:51am Andrew Waterloo:

@ausmanx, which makes sense since the entire moon landing was about American nationalism.
  Tue. 8/28/12 9:52am Sam:

All the nuns, priests, ministers, deacons, etc that I've ever met have seemed like really good reasonable compassionate people who want to do good in the world. They have to attach themselves to an organized religion, and most of them seem to have a lot of personal disagreements with the dogma, but they still get a lot out of their religious life. Just like there are many businesses where the workers are generally decent people but the company as a whole does monstrous things, and so many countries with wonderful people and evil governments.
  Tue. 8/28/12 9:53am Tiago in Toon:

the thing about armstrong is that he embodied a way of being american that many americans (and europeans) long for
  Tue. 8/28/12 9:54am duke:

I think it's true that Neil's death is a media event manipulated for political purposes. But, for us nerds, Neil has always been a big hero - smart, brave, competent, and humble. Among techies, I think he was respected for more than nationalism. I grew up wanting to be Neil Armstrong. That moon landing convinced me to study science. Never made it outer space, dammit.
  Tue. 8/28/12 9:54am Sam:

I don't think the moon landing was about nationalism, it was about boldly going where no man has gone before. And finding some exotic green creepy crawlies! Isn't it our duty to explore space, if we have the technology? Don't we want to know what's out there? It's not about nationalism, at least not for me.
  Tue. 8/28/12 9:55am Cecile:

that's exactly it, duke!
  Tue. 8/28/12 9:56am Cecile:

well, we were trying to beat the Russians to the moon. There's more than a bit of nationalism, if in the form of "national pride" there.
Avatar Swag For Life Member Tue. 8/28/12 9:56am trouble:

i was very small when it happened, but i don't see the moon landing as nationalism as much as i see it as pushing the borders of science. yes usa wanted to hit it b4 ussr but that was cold war nonsense making its way out the door. i see press on armstrong's death as a melancholic desire for more experimentation and searching. instead we bury out heads in the sand and deny science. we spend that money on orchestrating death thru the defense budget. i would like to see those budgets swapped, NASA gets more pentagon lots less.
  Tue. 8/28/12 9:56am other david:

It seemed like a footnote here in Ireland, I don't think the significance of his passing has really been appreciated - and probably wont be for some time.

In a few short years, none of the members of the Apollo crewmembers will be left.

I think it was Collins that noted that when they came home and did the world tour, people around the world said "we did it!" - we being humanity.

Armstrong also noted how, on the moon, he could blot out the earth by just holding up his thumb - and how small it made all of us, himself included.

To be humble in spite of a vast number range of accomplishments, I think that's one of the mark of a truly great human being.

If people or organisations use his passing for their own gain, it just reveals them for what they are, cynical opportunists.

Neil Armstrong was a great person, end of.
  Tue. 8/28/12 9:57am other david:

  Tue. 8/28/12 9:58am fred von helsing:

I give the commies some credit. They had a pretty good moon program too. Their moon lander was way more stylish than ours. Too many N-2 kabooms tho. The Beeb series is fantastic.
  Tue. 8/28/12 10:00am fred von helsing:

Moon ROCKS !
  Tue. 8/28/12 10:00am Sam:

He also symbolizes a lost innocence, a lost idealism, where many people really did believe in exploring space for its own sake, hand in hand with the idea of knowledge for its own sake, an idea of progress through science and the betterment of mankind. Of course that all sounds crazy now! And also quaint and sadly moving.

just wondering whether there was as much fuss in the US when Gagarin died, if it was really all about appreciating scientific achievements?
  Tue. 8/28/12 10:11am fred von helsing:

Another: NBC had some HO model trains tracks set up for orbits and insertion paths, and spacecraft segments (stages 1 2 3, LEM, CM) set up on trains. Frank McGee demonstrated the entire mission using model trains separating and rejoining and doing cool stuff. Who the hell needs animations when you have model trains ?? As a train-lovin' space nut, I think I musta wet'em :-P

Gagarin was a bit of an embarrassment eh ? The commies kicked our butts and kept on kickin'em until we started reliably docking Geminis to Agenas.
  Tue. 8/28/12 10:13am Cecile:

Of course, it wasn't all about it, ausmanx. I think even this record of the landing makes refernce to that.

But his death was noted and and some nice tributes were put forth here.
  Tue. 8/28/12 10:14am duke:

Certainly, there wasn't much fuss in the US media about Gagarin. After all, Katy Perry had a new hairdo and Honey Boo Boo has to be covered. It was news in places where people follow science and tech.

  Tue. 8/28/12 10:35am PJ:

The impetus for the proposed moon landing was part and parcel of the competition between the US and the USSR - it was a huge shock to the US that Yuri Gagarin was the first man in space. But the astronauts and people working at NASA were clearly scientists, and seem to have been motivated by the desire to expand human knowledge and to be the first to explore unknown territory.

A side note, some people want to get back to the moon to remove Richard Nixon's name from the commemorative plaques left behind by the astronauts.

@LM Why?? It's not like he was Lenin and we have to pull his statue down.

Subaru is Japanese for the constellation Pleiades or Seven Sisters. That's why their logo has seven stars in it.

Hello everyone. Yesterday was a public holiday in the UK so it's only just occurred to me that today's tuesday. Better late than never, I suppose. Just catching up. Moon and Chicken Olympics, right?
  Tue. 8/28/12 11:16am still b/p:

I'm at U minus 3 days and counting.

I will be available to go to the moon as of the first of the month with simple tools for acts of malice/justice.

When NBC announced the sad news, I was sorry to hear that Neil Young had died. And surprised to learn that Neil Young was the first man on the moon.

  Tue. 8/28/12 11:21am Adrian in London:

@trouble Sounds good. I emailed you something good last night, by the way; look out for it.

HA HA! Never heard this song about Whole Paycheck. This is great. "Pay my 80 bucks for 6 things and get out."

Ike, the video is really funny too. Look it up on YouTube.

thanks northguineahills! i hit the dump button jennique, did it not go thru?
  Tue. 8/28/12 11:35am Cecile:

it went through
  Tue. 8/28/12 11:35am Ike:

I wonder if there are any rap songs about Trader Joe's. I guess a discount gourmet store is not as ripe a target though.
