Why We Never Returned to the Moon After the Apollo Missions


Some of the popcorn remained un-popped.
Despite following microwave instructions.
Science is an inexact science.

By the time we figured this out the ship
was already plummeting in a death spiral towards the sun.

Instead of serving popcorn on cheap “space” paperplates, we brought out Steve’s
grandmother’s heirloom China.

I felt stupid now for opposing that we bring his China set on the mission.

In the end we were thankful.

These were dishes we would not need to wash.
