back to the little brain teaser of the other day. . .
.


Pete Conrad (below) one of the moonwalkers (the image above is the famous one of Buzz Aldrin) took a tape player and cassette of his favourite songs on board Apollo 12
.
apparently his fellow astronauts were mildy irritated by his play list. . .
.

.
(when referring to Neil Armstrong's historic "one small step" statement, Conrad said, "Whoopee! Man, that may have been a small one for Neil, but that's a long one for me!") (sadly, he died aged 69, in a motorbike accident)

Could you fix it for me? Please.

U.S. tax dollars at work allowing astronauts to jam tunes through the cosmos.

He lived 'til 69, and died in a motorcycle accident? That's a life well lived :-)

It's supposed to be very humbling, this being wrong stuff.

I don't feel humbled. I just feel wrong.

Great little teaser. Do another one.
