REMARKS BY MR. NEIL ARMSTRONG -- HON. GEORGE E. BROWN, JR.
(Extension of Remarks - July 20, 1994)

[Page: E1509]

HON. GEORGE E. BROWN, JR.

in the House of Representatives

WEDNESDAY, JULY 20, 1994

* Mr. BROWN of California. Mr. Speaker, on this the 25th anniversary of the first Moon landing, I would like to insert into the Record the eloquent remarks of Mr. Neil Armstrong, the first human to set foot on the surface of another world. These remarks were given at the White House today during a ceremony commemorating the Apollo 11 mission.

Thank you, Mr. Vice President, Mr. President, members of Congress, fellow astronauts, ladies and gentlemen.

Wilbur Wright once noted that the only bird that cold talk was the parrot, and he didn't fly very well. So 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 here in the first rows, were immersed. Our old astrogeology mentor, Gene Shoemaker, even called in one of his comets to mark the occasion with spectacular Jovian fireworks. And reminding us once again of the power and consequence of celestial extracurricular activities.

Many Americans were part of Apollo, about one or two in each thousand citizens, all across the country. They were asked by their country to do the impossible--to envisage the design and to build a method of breaking the bonds of earth's gravity and then sally forth to visit another heavenly body. The principal elements--leaving earth, navigating in space and descending to a planet unencumbered with runways and traffic control--would include major requirements necessary for a space-faring people.

Today a space shuttle flies overhead with an international crew. A number of countries have international space programs. During the space age we have increased our knowledge of our universe a thousand-fold.

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 the truth's protective layers. There are many places to go beyond belief. Those challenges are yours--in many fields, not the least of which is space, because there lies human destiny.

So to sum up :
Neil implies he is a PARROT.
Then he challenges YOU to "remove one of the truth's protective layers" and go to " many places to go beyond belief".

But sheeple gonna sheeple.

You mean like, discovering a third Van Allen Belt?

Or perhaps the Apollo Program itself might make discoveries about the origin of the Moon -- which has implications for planetary formation, which leads not just to new information about extra-solar planets, but about the geologic stability and recoverable resources of our own planet.

Or perhaps -- since he was heavily involved in the space sciences -- he might mean new discoveries in how to live and work in space. New technologies to make the passage to orbit more economical. New developments in long-term sustainability.

I mean, really -- is he going to go in front of the HOUSE (who you would think would be in on any world-spanning nefarious plot already) and in the context of talking about the Apollo Program, the Space Shuttle, and other pioneers like the Wright Brothers drop a line meant to imply that everything else in his talk was a lie and you really should be thinking about the Nazi Flying Saucers housed at the North Pole?

Sheesh.
