On July 20, 1969, as commander of the Apollo 11 lunar
module, Neil Armstrong was the first person to set
foot on the moon. His first words after stepping on the
moon, "that's one small step for man, one giant
leap for mankind," were televised to earth
and heard by millions.

But just before he reentered the lander, he made
The enigmatic remark, "good luck, Mr. Gorsky."

Many people at NASA though it was a casual
remark concerning some rival soviet cosmonaut.
However, upon checking, there was no Gorsky in either
The Russian or American space programs.

Over the years many people questioned
Armstrong as to what the "Good luck, Mr. Gorsky"
statement meant, but Armstrong always just smiled.
On July 5, 1995. in Tampa Bay, Florida, while
answering questions following a speech, a reporter
brought up the 26-year-old question to Armstrong.
This time he finally responded. Mr. Gorsky
had died, so Neil Armstrong felt he could answer
the question.

In 1938 when he was a kid in a small Midwest town,
He was playing baseball with a friend in the backyard.
His friend hit the ball, which landed in his neighbor's
yard by the bedroom windows. His neighbors were Mr. and
Mrs. Gorsky. As he leaned down to pick up the ball,
young Armstrong heard Mrs. Gorsky shouting at Mr. Gorsky.

"Sex!!! You want sex! You'll get sex when the kid
Next door walks on the moon!!!"
