From the Earth to the Moon Quotes

  • (Clinton Anderson) "Now, before we all go home, is there any statement you personally would like to make?"
  • (Frank Borman) "I think I'm safe in speaking for all the astronauts when I say that we're confident in our management, we're confident in our training, in our engineering, and in ourselves. The real question is, are you confident in us?"
  • (Clinton Anderson) "What do you think we should do, Colonel?"
  • (Frank Borman) "I think you should stop this witch hunt and let us go to the Moon."
  • (Buzz Aldrin) "Houston, this is the LEM pilot -- I'd like to take this opportunity to ask every person listening in; whoever and wherever they may be; to pause a moment and contemplate the events of the past few days. And to give thanks, in his or her own way."
  • (Neil Armstrong) "That's one small step for man, one giant leap for mankind."
  • (Dr. Lee Silver, Geologist) "Now, we don't really know what we're going to find on the surface of the Moon --"
  • (Astronaut James Irwin) "Pete Conrad's car -- keys?"
  • (Ed White) "I could stay out here all day."

  • (Clinton Anderson) "Colonel, what caused the fire? I'm not talking about wires and oxygen. It seems that some people think that NASA pressured North American to meet unrealistic and arbitrary deadlines and that in turn North American allowed safety to be compromised."
  • (Frank Borman) "I won't deny there's been pressure to meet deadlines, but safety has never been intentionally compromised."
  • (Clinton Anderson) "Then what caused the fire?"
  • (Frank Borman) "A failure of imagination. We've always known there was the possibility of fire in a spacecraft. But the fear was that it would happen in space, when you're 180 miles from terra firma and the nearest fire station. That was the worry. No one ever imagined it could happen on the ground. If anyone had thought of it, the test would've been classified as hazardous. But it wasn't. We just didn't think of it. Now who's fault is that? Well, it's North American's fault. It's NASA's fault. It's the fault of every person who ever worked on Apollo. It's my fault. I didn't think the test was hazardous. No one did. I wish to God we had."

  • (Astronaut David Scott) "But finding this little fella; understanding what it represents, what it could tell us; will probably be the most satisfying thing I'll ever do."
  • (Dr. Lee Silver, Geologist) "Well, I suspect there more to come from Dave Scott. But, in the meantime, "Brought back original crust from the Moon" should weigh pretty impressively on your resume, you know?"
