True or not, it was a great story.

Cute story but unfortunately, not true. Armstrong never said those words. It was part of a stand up routine by Buddy Hackett on a variety show.

Sorry to burst the bubble.

For reference, you can go to www.snopes.com to verify any similar story.

Neil Armstrong had a secret:


JULY 20, 1969: AS COMMANDER OF THE APOLLO 11 LUNAR MODULE, NEIL ARMSTRONG WAS THE FIRST PERSON TO SET FOOT ON THE MOON. HIS MEMORABLE FIRST WORDS WERE "ONE SMALL STEP FOR MAN, ONE GIANT LEAP FOR MANKIND"... TELEVISED TO EARTH AND HEARD BY MILLIONS.

BUT JUST BEFORE HE RE-ENTERING THE LANDER, HE MADE THE ENIGMATIC REMARK "GOOD LUCK, MR. GORSKY". MANY PEOPLE AT NASA THOUGH IT WAS A CASUAL REMARK CONCERNING SOME RIVAL SOVIET COSMONAUT; HOWEVER, UPON CHECKING, THERE WAS NO 'GORSKY' IN EITHER THE RUSSIAN OR AMERICAN SPACE PROGRAMS.

OVER THE YEARS TO FOLLOW, ARMSTRONG WAS QUESTIONED AS TO WHAT THE QUOTE MEANT, BUT HE REPLIED WITH ONLY A SMILE.


JULY 5, 1995: WHILE ANSWERING QUESTIONS FOLLOWING HIS SPEECH IN TAMPA BAY FLORIDA, ONE REPORTER BROUGHT UP THE 26-YEAR OLD QUESTION YET AGAIN. AS MR. GORSKY HAD SINCE DIED, ARMSTRONG FELT THIS TIME HE COULD NOW RESPOND.

HERE IS HIS RESPONSE: IN 1938 WHEN HE WAS A KID IN A SMALL MID-WEST TOWN, HE WAS PLAYING BASEBALL WITH A FRIEND IN THE BACKYARD. HIS FRIEND HIT THE BALL, WHICH LANDED IN HIS NEIGHBOR'S YARD BY THEIR BEDROOM WINDOW. THESE NEIGHBORS WERE MR. & MRS. 'GORSKY'.

AS HE LEANED DOWN TO PICK UP THE BALL, YOUNG ARMSTRONG HEARD MRS. GORSKY SHOUTING AT MR. GORSKY...
"SEX! YOU WANT SEX?! YOU'LL GET SEX WHEN THE KID NEXT DOOR WALKS ON THE MOON!"
