Today in 1969, the Apollo 11 astronauts Neil Armstrong and Edwin "Buzz" Aldrin became the
first men to walk on the Moon. With the breathtakingly desolate surface of the moon set before him and the expanse of the galaxy pressing in, Neil descended the ladder of lunar lander. And, on the brink of one of the biggest moments in history, he forgot his lines. "How did it go again? Something about a monkey... or a man... mankind... maybe it had something to do with cars... Oh, shoot, everybody's looking at me... Um, that's one small step for dudes, one giant leap on a great big trampoline."

In honor of line-flubbing, poop-in-your-space-pants stage fright, check out Google Moon.

Make sure you zoom all the way in.

    It's not widely known, but those words were written by an ad agency. No way was NASA going to let the astronauts improvise at such an important PR opportunity.
