- What is the date of the first manned moon landing?
don't be late.
Rough guess. I'd go with it.
it's fucking amazing and showed man's ability to conquer the universe.
are you remotely serious?
it has a 69 in it, so of course i'll remember.
unless this is a great trick question
I know because they named my ex husband after one of em.
outstanding pair of comedians.
Couldn't tell you the day though.
The space shuttle Delamitiri, manned by Mark Twain and Dame Peggy Ashcroft. They took a MK3 Ford Granada with them, believing the moon to be an ideal place for a racing circuit. They gave up on the idea when they realised there was no room for hot dog vans
with a flying drakkar magically emporewed by Thor.
For once working together, americans and russians managed to erase this from history, but we know better !
And the baron of Munchausen did it before the americans too !
"On July 20, 1969, the human race accomplished its single greatest technological achievement of all time when a human first set foot on another celestial body."
I award myself a prize.
In fairness though, I couldn't give a fucking shit.
It was the day my mum was born. Fact.
LOOK AT THE CONTROLERS!
originally breaking out of the biosphere is more momentous?? It sounds better I think.
I actually knew this one.
if you can't retain factual information such as dates.
IT NEVER HAPPENED.
I read about it on the internet.
I know it was July 1969.
the same year.
july 1969, round about the 20th
I'm thinking 20th July 1969 (just a hunch)
One day out
got there first. Comrade
to my praise I stayed up all night, the first time I had ever done so.....round the clock......I made my mum to............it was great...... (I had a telescope soon after and got stickers of all the appollo missions on it
The BBC "On This Day" thing says says the landing was on the 21st: http://tinyurl.com/2nql85
The Wikipedia entry on Apollo 11says it was on the 20th: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Apollo_11
But the Wikipedia 1969 year entry says it happened on the 21st:http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/1969
