Blue Moon

Post by ROU Killing Time » Mon Aug 05, 2019 3:55 am

History was made. The first human to set foot on another world. One small step for a man. He wouldn’t be around to hear the argument over whether he had flubbed his line. The collection of rocks and dust from the surface was made moot when a small boulder was discovered under the Excursion Module, just big enough to puncture one of the fuel cells allowing them to silently maroon him amid the magnificent desolation of The Pacific Ocean. As the last of his oxygen drained away he looked up at home, a beautiful marble above. The deep blue Moon.
