Neil Armstrong’s Secret Story Behind “Good luck Mr.Gorsky” Remark

On 20th July 1969, as commander of the Apollo11 Lunar Module, Neil Armstrong was the first person to set foot on the moon. His first words after stepping on the moon ‘Thats one small step for man, One giant leap for the mankind,’ were televised to Earth and heard by millions.But just before he reentered the Apollo 11, he made the enigmatic 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 programmes. Over the years many people questioned Armstrong as to what “Good Luck Mr Gorsky” statement meant, but Armstrong always just smiled and said nothing.

 

But on 5th july in Tampa Bay , Florida , while answerin reporters questions, a reporter brought up the 26 year old question. This time he finally responded. Mr Gorsky had died so Neil Armstrong felt he could impart the secret of his enigmatic words.

 

In 1938, when Neil was a kid in a small midwest town, he was playing baseball with a friend in the backyard. His friend hit a flyball which landed his neighbours’ yard- Mr & Mrs Gorsky’s…

As he leaned down to pick up the ball, young Armstrong heard Mrs Gorsky shouting at her husband,

 

“SEX? You want SEX!? You’ll get sex when the kid next door walks on the moon!!”

 

A true story…

 

Good Luck Mr Gorsky
