Among the items declared are tools, a flag, bags of food and bags of human waste left by astronauts Neil Armstrong and Buzz Aldrin. [BBC News, 1-30-10]
    Gad.
    We're dead broke, but we still somehow have to fund this kind of nonsense. Everything imaginable has some kind of agency or commission in this bloated beached whale of a state.
    I was born here in Southern California, as were both my parents, but these days I'm a little embarrassed to say so.

    BTW, what if Armstrong and Aldrin decide to lay claim to their own shit?
    I do use a digital device in my photographic pursuits when necessary.
    When someone rags on me for using film, I use a middle digit, upraised.

    PE... GOOD TO KNOW YOU.

    Also I never thought about human waste on the moon. That cracks me up.

    There is enough human waste in orbit that the returning shuttle and the exterior of the Space Station are "krudding" up! This is true though, and the astronauts have to be careful sanitizing themselves after a space walk. Frozen bits also can act as meteors striking with enough force to injure an astronaut. Kind of like a frozen brown mist in space!

    Thanks VPW.....

    Every job has its crap to put up with. I guess they can't be deterred...

    I hope NASA will think to build a "Darkroom" there on the moon, to process "moon" Hassy films and print them, the film will expire before the shuttle reaches the earth.

    Now, there's a strange thought!

    "News Flash: This just in... Space shuttle astronaut killed by flying crap-sicle while on spacewalk!... Film at eleven!"

    Including 1 camera that is supposedly still on the moon but is actually in the hands of a private collector in California.

    Ewww. Down here we only have to worry about our shoes after a walk.

    Don't you think the dark side of the moon would be dark enough?

    The dark side of the moon is not dark.
