Communion on the moon. Oy.

This actually happened.
As Neil Armstrong and Buzz Aldrin prepared to take "one small step for man," Aldrin wanted to commemorate the moment in a way he found most personally meaningful -- by taking communion.
You know you want to read the full story. Damn, and it's Sunday and everything.

Well at least he has re-thought his actions for the betterment of humankind.

Personally I want to be free to not believe and be quiet about it. I would like the believers to do the same... quietly, shhhhhhh. Keep what they have between themselves and God, OK?..... shhhhhhh, shhhhhhh.

I'm with you. And yes, it's nice that he'd re-think it. I figured I'd let readers learn the details by following the link, as you did. Still, it's damn creepy. It pretty much ruined the good memories I had about the landing. Why must they smear their religious nonsense all over everything? It's disgusting.
