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 was, "That's one small step for man, one giant leap for mankind," were televised to Earth and heard by millions.
But just before he re-entered the lander, he made the enigmatic remark, "Good Luck Mr Gorsky." Many people at NASA thought it was a casual remark concerning some rival Soviet cosmonaut. However, upon checking, there was no Gorsky in either the Russian or the American space programs.
Over the years many people questioned Armstrong as to what the "Good Luck Mr Gorsky." statement meant, but he 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. This time Armstrong finally responsed. Mr Gorsky had died, so Neil Armstrong felt he could answer the question.
In 1938 when he was a small kid in a mid west town, he was playing baseball with a friend in the backyard. His friend hit the ball which landed in the neighbor's yard by the bedroom windows. His neighbors were Mr and Mrs Gorsky. As he leaned to pick up the ball, young Neil heard Mrs Gorsky shouting at Mr Gorsky, "Sex? You want sex? You'll get sex when the kid next door walks on the moon!"
