Oh, and I probably don't need to say it here, but would people please stop saying you can see the Apollo remnants with a backyard telescope?
It is simply not true, and truth should never be supported by lies.

Well, now, that depends.  What remnants are we talking?  If we're talking about the ones still on the Moon, that's lies.  But there are plenty in museums around the world, and if you're in the right place, they're perfectly visible with a backyard telescope.  Or even my puny little digital camera!

And if so, are you looking for a room-mate?
I'll need help moving, mind.

Um, did you read my post?  I said you can't see the ones on the Moon, just the ones in museums.

Ah, but you qualified it with "If you're in the right place".
If you are on the moon or a low enough lunar orbit (huzzah no atmosphere!) you could see them with a backyard telescope or digital camera.  ;)
Being on the moon or low, low, lunar orbit being the "right places", yes?

Fair enough.  But I'm not in those places, so why would you be interested in being my roommate?  (I haven't even lived near the place where I saw Apollo remnant in person since the '90s.)

But if you were in those places, I'd want to be roomies. I don't take much oxygen, I swear, I'll bring plants!
