Was Neil Armstrong Gay?
Neil Armstrong: A Devout Christian, A Great American, and Homosexual?
Neil Armstrong can best be described as a reluctant American Hero. Before 1969, no one had heard of him. Afterwards, he became the most famous man in the world, and promptly fled from public attention. Most say he couldn't handle the pressure of international fame and this might seem like a reasonable excuse at first until you remember what he's done all his life. Armstrong the man who, was fighter ace in Korea and, on one occasion, lost part of a wing over enemy territory, but still returned safely. His Gemini 8 spacecraft began tumbling wildly out of control in 1966 and he still brought it down without mishap. And he was down to about 15 seconds of fuel, after dodging boulders on the Moon, when he landed the Eagle on 20 July, 1969. Does this sound like a pressure averse man to you? This along with Neil's depressing love life signs something much bigger than shyness.
Scandals Ring At NASA Headquarters
Only one week after Apollo 11's successful reentrance into the Earth's atmosphere Buzz Aldrin and Neil Armstrong reportedly sneaked off together for a weekend deep in the Caribbean. One can only assume how deep the weekend was. However this wasn't the only "activity" going on at NASA. People may forget about when rookie astronaut Bob [McCaffe] taped himself making lewd gestures and simulating oral sex on a sleeping cosmonaut [Mikhail Tyurin] in the International Space Station. Or when the space program got off to a rocky start in the early 60's amid rumors of orgies and wife swapping between the Mercury astronauts.
NASA admits that the twisted love triangle involving two of its astronauts is a blemish on its record, but still beats the hell out of Buzz Aldrin's last words on the moon: "Gee, Neil, you give a whole new meaning to the phrase 'moon rock'."
