WALKING ON THE MOON
Rank: Pepper Love of the Awesome
Nominated by Love of the Awesome

Year One Tournament of Champions Champ, August 2009 Champion

It is pretty amazing how humans are able to escape Earth , go to the moon and walk on it.  It is a symbol of national pride for Americans but also a beacon of hope for all humans because it shows us that no task is too large and no obstacle too high to overcome. "One small step for man, one giant leap for Mankind" Niel Armstrong

Little Superstar
LITTLE SUPERSTAR
Rank: George Ivan Awesomeoff
Nominated by Ivan Awesomeoff

October 2008 Champion

If we had a resident science teacher, and they gave us a weekly pop quiz:

"Define the word awesome using a carbon-based life form weighing less than 50 lbs."

 The only answer possible... is Little Superstar.

OK, so strapping yourself to a pillar of flame, onboard the largest non-nuclear explosive device ever built, tearing yourself free from the planet's gravity and taking steps on a surface further away than anyone has been before isn't awesome?

And as for volunteers, it's hard to find volunteers who have the skills required to pilot a lunar module or re-entry vehicle using nothing but a slide-rule, brains and guts.

Totally awesome. reply high five

Look, lets not slag volunteers in general; as someone who relied on volunteers to put on our provincial Special Olympics Games, I can vouchsafe the fact that volunteers are awesome.

But I doubt I could find any with the neccessary skillz to fly a Saturn 5. reply high five

The Dude replied to Olav Rokne on 8/5/2009
That wasn't really meant to disparage volunteers as a concept. My point was that, judging from Youtube, every redneck with a video camera would volunteer to do ridiculous things, but that doesn't mean that they would, 1. be qualified or 2. actually do it when the chips were down. When you and two of your closest buddies are sitting on top of 6 million pounds of rocket fuel. Steaming, seething, ready to explode at a moment's notice, you might have second thoughts about taking that trip. Especially knowing that the computers that run everything onboard are substantially less complicated than even the most basic cellular phone. Mankind's greatest endeavour. End of story. I may have nominated Mark Twain, but I'm going to go ahead and call Walking on the Moon the single most Awesome entrant of the month. reply high five

Yorky replied to The Dude on 8/5/2009
Obviously no-one just has the skills to fly a lunar lander and safely put it on the moon: that comes with training. What they would need to look for in volunteers is the aptitude to absorb that training and the medical and physical fitness and mental robustness to survive the mission and be able to think straight while under considerable mental and physical strain.

Needless to say, I'd do it. In my world where I'm the model of normality everyone would jump at the chance, hence my comment about there being no shortage of volunteers. reply high five

I'm not being inconsistent at all: being asked to take part in a space mission, especially a Moon landing, would be totally awesome - nominating "Walking on the Moon" (but not the record by The Police), however, is geeky. reply high five

I find it interesting that most people that believe the moon landings were a hoax cite photographic evidence to prove we didn't go, but typically no little to absolutely nothing about photography. Which leads me to my conclusion. If you do not believe we went to the moon, then you are f***ing retarded, and I'm sending Buz Aldrin to your house! http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ZOo6aHSY8hU reply high five1
