I watched The Series Has Landed again today and noticed this plaque inside the lander that I'd forgotten about:



Now... I'm not sure, but is this an indication that the writers subscribe to the notion that the Apollo moon landings were faked, and that the lander was put on the moon after the fact in order to stand as 'evidence' of the moon landing?
If so - Cool!
It would gel with the President's comments in Roswell that Ends Well.

Oh yeah, I noticed that sign the last time I watched that...

Maybe due to lack of gravity on the moon, the shuttle started for fall away and began its own orbit, and so it had to be returned.  tongue

Ah Maz, once again you have demonstrated your lack of rocket science know-how. It's a lander, not a shuttle - and the moon has gravity.

I reckon it had to be 'returned' from Groom Lake (Area 51) where the 'moon landings' were filmed.

I realised I said shuttle but I couldn't be bothered editing. And I like to make up reasons for things, even if they're not justified.
As for the moon..I thought it had only a small gravitational-pull-type-majigger? Or am I thinking of giant spoons?

Well, you couldn't jump off it. It's about 12.3% of Earth's gravity.

Yesh. I wasn't saying things could fly away from it...

...Unless...

No unless!

Back in my day, the moon was still connected to the earth by a land bridge. But then the ice age ended and the ocean rose up and covered the land bridge and now the moon is an island.

Nope, it's a reference to the fact the ascent module (lander) returned to orbit with Armstrong and Aldrin, leaving only the descent module (landing legs) on the Moon. The lander was left orbiting the Moon and eventually crashed somewhere. By having the Historical Sticklers Society return the lander to the site, the writers left a pre-emptive response to any "historical sticklers" that might have asked why the top half of the lunar lander was still in place.

Aww.
We used to think there should be bridges between land masses, so you could walk/drive/etc to places overseas...Heh, walk.
Let's walk to the moon!

Aaaagh... Jesus, of course. I'm a friggin' moron, how did I not realize that?! Everybody feel free to hit me now.

I feel stupid, 'cause I actually KNOW the entire apollo mission profile like the back of my hand. What a dumbarse........ ugh!

Man never did really land on the moon. Dad refuses to believe me though.

Preaching to the converted there, Cyberphobia.
Heck, I'm so paranoid I even have some doubts that the moon even exists.

The moon doesn't exist. It's actually just part of Christof's giant dome where he controls everything that happens within. Someone is equivalent to Truman...
