 Jokes » Good luck Mr. Gorsky.
When Apollo Mission Astronaut Neil Armstrong first walked on the moon, he no only gave his famous "one small step for man, one giant leap for mankind." statement, but foloowed it by several remarks, usual communication traffic between him, the other astronauts, and Mission Control.

Just before he re-entered the lander, however, he made this 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 American space programs.

Over the years many people questioned Armstrong as to what the "Good luck Mr. Gorsky" statement meant, but Armstrong always jsut smiled. On July 5, 1995 in Tampa Bay, FL, while answering questions following a speech, a reporter brought up the 26 year old question to Armstrong. This time he finally responded.

Mr. Gorsky has finally died and so Neil Armstrong felt he could answer the question. When he was a kid, he was playing baseball with a friend in the backyard. His friend hit a fly ball, which landed in the front of his neighbor's bedroom windows. His 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!"
