The First Words on the Moon

You think you know the first words spoken on the moon? Watch this video. Is this important? Not sure, but I wouldn’t miss an opportunity to post interesting facts about the greatest adventure in the history of mankind. Now it sounds more interesting, right? The original transcripts of the radio communication between Earth and the Moon is available at NASA. The video is from Scott Manley’s Youtube channel and I recommend you to check it out if you’re the slightest interested in space or computer games related to space.
