Schadenfreude in Space: A Blooper Reel of Astronauts Falling Over

Tuesday July 31, 2018 Written by Chris

This month marked the 49th anniversary of the Apollo 11 moon landing, a date etched into the memories of baby boomers (and disputed by black sheep uncles) the world over. In our humble opinion, NASA did a pretty good job changing the fate of mankind at a time when computers were the size of small trucks and had all the processing power of a Pac-Man wrist watch. They also did a good job selling the event as a piece of surgically precise choreography. Truth be told, being on the moon wasn’t exactly the low-gravity ballet dance it’s been chalked up to, as evinced by the above footage from NASA’s own archives, care of YouTuber Martian Archaeology. Thanks for exposing the truth, Martian. We just hope Buzz Aldrin doesn’t punch you in the face
