He did say "a man", but NASA cleaned up the transmission and lost that word.

RE: First step on Mars.
I've always said I would say something totally unfit for broadcast.

Maybe "shit, piss, fuck, cunt, cocksucker, motherfucker, tits."

It would have to go down in the history books, and every child around the world would have to learn those words. This would amuse me somewhat.

This famous quote is know by just about everyone. I poetic and powerful. By this simple little action he had done something that has never done before, but not claiming it on himself but all of humanity. Short and sweet.

So in this senario you are the first person to step on mars. What would you say? What would think should be said?

I think I would say

Today is the furthest mankind has ever ventured. Tomorrow I may say the same.

What would you say should such an event occur. And you we're the person to do it?

The moon landing was really an accomplishment of mankind. Neil, I love you but you were incidental. The quote nails that point. The situation will be the same when one of us sets foots on mars. The words uttered in that moment will not be anymore poetic or powerful than when we stepped foot on the moon.

When a human shakes the appendage of an extraterrestrial is when something more poetic or powerful will be spoken.

You're making a pretty wild assumption there --- in some quarters of the galaxy, shaking an appendage can mean anything from "Spare a few credits?" -- to declaring war -- or sexual foreplay......... It might even mean you're now married to it.......

Well said.

My uncle worked on the Apollo missions. He was a government contractor and without his contributions there may not have been a moon landing. He was an unknown mathematician who helped solve a problem using a slide ruler.

When Armstrong stepped on the moon, my uncle was part of that.

As a side note, he received a lunar module tie pin for his efforts. My dad gave it to me when my uncle died and I where it from time to time.

That is legit the perfect quote.
Acknowledge the great achievement of reaching Mars, but also that we should never keep trying to reach further and continue to discover more and more.

+1 internet cookies for you good sir.


If I was the first person I'd say something legit like the quote above.
But for fun I'd probably make a comment about being able to see someone's momma from here. Or simply just "cunt"
