What did the astronauts first eat on the Moon?
You would think it was a NASA protein bar but it turns out to be bread and wine. This month’s edition of a space magazine tells us what actually happened on landing:
“In private (Buzz) Aldrin took out a small cup, some wine, and bread and said Holy Communion. After reading a section of the Gospel of St John, Aldrin said a few words with Armstrong respectfully looking on.” (‘All About Space’, Issue 67)
The press was not told of this remembrance of Christ due to an earlier legal action by atheists.
However, it remains a moment that graces one of the greatest events in human history. So, as humans continue to reach for the stars, may they also reach out to their maker. Because he is certainly reaching out to them.
