    The Trash We've Left on the Moon

    SNIP-------------------------------------------- Much more at link!

    So. With that in mind, here is a rough (and only partial) inventory of the stuff mankind has left on the moon:

    • more than 70 spacecraft, including rovers, modules, and crashed orbiters
    • 5 American flags
    • 2 golf balls
    • 12 pairs of boots
    • TV cameras
    • film magazines
    • 96 bags of urine, feces, and vomit
    • numerous Hasselbad cameras and accessories
    • several improvised javelins
    • various hammers, tongs, rakes, and shovels
    • backpacks
    • insulating blankets
    • utility towels
    • used wet wipes
    • personal hygiene kits
    • empty packages of space food
    • a photograph of Apollo 16 astronaut Charles Duke's family
    • a feather from Baggin, the Air Force Academy's mascot falcon, used to conduct Apollo 15's famous "hammer-feather drop" experiment
    • a small aluminum sculpture, a tribute to the American and Soviet "fallen astronauts" who died in the space race -- left by the crew of Apollo 15
    • a patch from the never-launched Apollo 1 mission, which ended prematurely when flames engulfed the command module during a 1967 training exercise, killing three U.S. astronauts
    • a small silicon disk bearing goodwill messages from 73 world leaders, and left on the moon by the crew of Apollo 11
    • a silver pin, left by Apollo 12 astronaut Alan Bean
    • a medal honoring Soviet cosmonauts Vladimir Komarov and Yuri Gagarin
    • a cast golden olive branch left by the crew of Apollo 11

    Not a sunrise, but a galaxy rise
    A morning filled with 400 billion suns
    The rising of the milky way"

    We will one day venture to the stars" -Carl Sagan

    So THIS explains why we haven't made first contact with the Vulcans. They got as far as the moon and deemed us unworthy. I guess it kinda looks like we have broken down cars and old stoves in our front yards. The sad part is you can find that here.

    Yeah, I guess we have a long way to go toward clicking with the higher cosmos.

    I can remember playing in those broken down cars at friends's homes. *embarrassed*

    imagine, the human species dies and another intelligent being evolves and tries to fly to the moon and finds all the stuff. i wonder what they would think

    probably be amazed of proof of another high intelligent life before them

    or think its from people of mars watching them

    it's like some expression of "ownership", literally leaving their [BEEP] there, marking ones territory. Sorry america.. you don't own the moon, we really don't "own" anything, just perhaps each other.. unfortunately.

    I think it's very possible we never left anything on the moon.
