NASA kept this secret for two decades
'On Sunday July 20, 1969 the first people landed on the moon. Neil Armstrong and Buzz Aldrin were in the lunar lander which touched down at 3:17 Eastern Standard Time. Buzz Aldrin had with him the Reserved Sacrament. He radioed: “Houston, this is Eagle. This is the LM pilot speaking. I would like to request a few moments of silence. I would like to invite each person listening in, whoever or wherever he may be, to contemplate for a moment the events of the last few hours, and to give thanks in his own individual way.”

'Later he wrote: “NASA was already embroiled in a legal battle with Madelyn Murray O’Hare, the celebrated opponent of religion, over the Apollo 8 crew reading from Genesis while orbiting the moon at Christmas. I agreed reluctantly...Eagle’s metal body creaked. I ate the tiny Host and swallowed the wine. I gave thanks for the intelligence and spirit that had brought two young pilots to ...

I recently heard Buzz Aldrin give a speech in which he mentioned this event. The rest of the speech was filled with the exaltation of scientific knowledge and platitudes about achieving peace through technology that would have made any old Cold Warrior proud.

There was no mention of Christ in his speech, though it was given as a commencement address to Christian college graduates. It was disappointing, to say the least.

Hi, So you tell me what you know, even if your best evidence be hearsay fifth-hand or more.Then I'll tell you mine.In the mean time I suggest you look up your telescope and check facts for yourselves and wonder and wander around the Creation and remember you are made in God's Image ~~ what on earth does God think looking in the bathroom mirror.Incidentally how do mirrors reverse left and right but not up and down?

John, as a Protestant (Christian), I would not be happy to hear about having the blessings of Should Roman Catholicism really be classified as a Christian religion? -- No. being propagandized with our tax money. I'm glad they kept their mouths shut.

Isiah 52
15so shall he sprinkle many nations; kings shall shut their mouths at him: for that which had not been told them shall they see; and that which they had not heard shall they understand.

I seem to recall reading, years ago, where Tenzing Norgay performed some sort of Buddhist rite on the top of Mt. Everest to celebrate the success of Edmund Hillary and himself being the first people to reach the top.

Then again, that was the (early?) 1950s (pre-Madelyn Murray O’Hare?), involving a religion much less convicting than Christianity, and performed I'm sure with much precident in a very Buddhist area of the world.

With the vastly larger and more diverse pool of astronauts now I can't help wondering if their aren't any other examples of religious expression amongst their numbers. Even with the increasing dominance of science and scientific institutions, like NASA, by material rationalists these days.
