These remarks were made by NEIL ARMSTRONG at the White House on WEDNESDAY, JULY 20, 1994 during a ceremony commemorating the Apollo 11 mission. See video clip below and watch the accompanying body language.
"Wilbur Wright once noted that the only bird that could talk was the parrot, and he didn't fly very well. I'll be brief. This week America has been recalling the Apollo program and reliving the memories of those times in which so many of us here colleagues in the first rows were immersed.Today we have with us a group of students, among America's best. To you we say we have only completed a beginning. We leave you much that is undone. There are great ideas undiscovered, breakthroughs available to those who can remove one of truth's protective layers. There are places to go beyond belief. Those challenges are yours.in many fields not the least in which is space because there lies human destiny."
Some individuals believe that the parrot who spoke too much and never got to fly was Gus Grissom. This is not a reference about flying to the moon, merely flying in the spacecraft around the Earth, something Gus Grissom never got to do because he was killed in an explosion along with Ed White and Roger Chaffee when doing a simulations in the spacecraft.
John Lear (of Lear Jet fame) notes that at an interview of the Apollo 8 astronauts the following question was asked by one of the journalists.
PATRICK MOORE: When you looked up at the sky, could you actually see the stars in the solar corona in spite of the glare?
ARMSTRONG: We were never able to see stars from the lunar surface or on the daylight side of the Moon by eye without looking through the optics. I don't recall during the period of time that we were photographing the solar corona what stars we could see.
COLLINS: I don't remember seeing any.
However a major discrepancy is found in "Carrying The Fire" by Michael Collins, (Farrar, Straus and Giroux, New York copyright by Michael Collins 1974) Collins says as he is getting ready to exit Gemini 10 for a spacewalk (page 221), "My God, the stars are everywhere: above me on all sides, even below me somewhat, down there next to that obscure horizon. The stars are bright and they are steady. Of course I know that a star's twinkle is created by the atmosphere, and I have seen twinkle-less stars before in a planeterium, but this is different, this is no simulation, this is the best view of the universe that a human ever had."
Richard interviews engineer Andrew Johnson and numerous discrepancies are raised.
Bart Sibrel confronted Edwin (Buzz) Aldrin with the “earth faking”shot. Buzz Aldrin said: "You're talking to the wrong guy - we were just passengers - guys going on a flight" The discrepancy noted is Aldrin did not say “guys going on a flight to the moon." http://www.checktheevidence.com/pdf/Apollo-RemovingTruthsProtectiveLayers-Booklet.pdf
