    50th Anniversary of Moon Landing

    This Saturday is 50th Anniversary of Man's first moon landing.

    or should I say "humankind's" first landing on the moon.

    Excuse me, I should have have said "humanity's" - huMANkind is obviously sexist.

    Whoops, "HuMANity" is also bigoted.

    No Muslims on the first moon landing. No blacks! No WOMEN! NO TRANGENDERS!!!

    I predict the 50th anniversary of the moon landing will be treated by the media as another occasion to bash white males, just as the media treated the original moon landing in 1969 as an opportunity to bash the while-male power structure for foolishly wasting money on "spendthrift" ventures in space and not giving that research and exploration tax money on "poor people."

    No celebration allowed.

    and maybe good so. dont know how good is your German. here is a link to the ORF, they have some good films about the whole story. but also about the Russians.. And there was ONE woman, a Computer specialists who wrote programs for the Apollo board computers. where MEN said, it could not be done, she did it over night.
    suppose no need to chew around Wernher von Braun and his 100 engineers who were spirited away from Peenemünde,and given the choice - you work for us or it is jail for all of you -.....
    there is also one film about a doctor, i cant recall his name, there is a whole film there but it is -in Austria only -. He did, togehter with others, in a KZ experiments on Prisoners about high altitude survival, how to survive in the cold waters of the ocean, when one ahs to land there. The good doctor also went quietly to the USA and carried on working for the NASA. Another one made a brilliant career with Lufthansa. And another went into industry. Many of these Doctors came, like the Nuremberg Tribunals, before an American Tribunal. Not one was convicted, because of - lack of evidence -. The American prosecutors just could not -find any documents -. Many of them went quietly to the USA, working for NASA....
    Had Korolev not dies so suddenly, the Soviets would have been also on the moon first. But after his dead, his sone took over the Bureau, and he might have been good, but not as charismatic as his father...
    Of course Kennedys speech also did its share.
    And in these videos an Austrian physicist showed with a few simple props, why the flag was waving, why one shade was this and another was that...
    So, the Americans were there, 50 years ago...


    i was quickly searching WIKi and found one name https://de.wikipedia.org/wiki/Sigmund_Rascher but he was not the -head-. he was -just - a -doer - not the thinker behind all this....

    Do you mention Grace Brewster Murray (maiden name, Hopper after marriage), COBOL language creator, US Navy commodore, aka Amazing Grace?

    sorry the link is in German. it was MARGOT HAMILTON, who found a fix for -Mistake 2011-, alarm bells were ringing because the - computer - had crashed and the moon landing was to be aborted. but the lady said she can fix it. and while the big Boys all said can not be done, she did it over night. though the chauvinists kept quiet all the years .an she got her recognition for what she had done, basically saved the landing on the moon, only when Obama was POTUS.

    That reminds me of my first boss when I worked at the 5-sided building. She had no training in computers, she had a degree in psychology. Her COBOL programs were not working. I spotted the problem, she was reading the contents of registers backwards. That is, a byte would be, for example "00110101" she was reading that from left to right, 53, instead of right to left, 172. She regularly accused anyone of being a 'racist" threatening and intimidating management and moved over to the IRS, where she got several more promotions. Once I told her I knew a pastor from her home town in the South - he was associated in some charity projects with my church - and she said "How was that, through the Klan!? (KKK)".

    People like her are a large part of why Washington is so f-ed up.
