“…A treasured piece at the Dutch national museum – a supposed moon rock from the first manned lunar landing – is nothing more than petrified wood, curators say. It was given to former Prime Minister Willem Drees during a goodwill tour by the three Apollo-11 astronauts shortly after their moon mission in 1969.

Wow, this is such ravingly Merc Retro serendipity. I was just the other night discussing the 1978 movie Capricorn One with the Scorpio Sex Academic. I was a child when i saw it and somehow i totally got the idea it was a documentary. Scorpio Sex Academic said she always assumed it was just p.r. Even now, the concept of Artemis & the astrological Moon Signs et al seem way more real to me than that we landed on it. What’s weird is that my teenage son and his friends (the Pluto in Scorpio generation) think it was bogus – their logic being that if someone had landed on the Moon in the 1960s, there would be McDonalds on it by now.
As for the faux Moon Rock given to the Dutch, what’s that about???? And which Sun Sign is most/least likely to believe in the Moon Landing. I’m thinking it’s strongly Scorp to diss it. Note also: The signature of a super-bonkers Mercury Retrograde is forgotten info, strange facts surfacing about something one takes for granted and weird little twists…strange news days indeed.
