Top 11 Highlights of the Real-Time Audio Replay of the Apollo 11 Mission

NASA is replaying the real-time audio of the Apollo 11 mission exactly 40 years after it happened. Being geeks, we’re listening to every second. But if you don’t have the time for that, here are the top 11 highlights:

11. “What idiot meal planner decided to make the first night bean burrito night?”

10. “How did you say this toilet works, again?”

9. “If Aldrin asks ‘Are we there yet?’ one more time, I’m gonna clock him.”

8. “The Mohave dessert looks beautiful tonight, err … I mean it looks beautiful when seen from out here in space, which is where we are right now, of course.”

7. "There seems to be a big, black, featureless slab in our landing area."

6. “Wow, being the first men to walk on the moon is an incredible honor and indescribably amazing, right Collins? Oops, sorry, I’m sure piloting the Command Module is great too.”

5. "Enough with the jokes about Uranus! And enough with the jokes about the full moon!"

4. “The Romulans are attacking, arm the photon torpedoes!”

3. "Why is it that we can put me on the moon, but we can't make diet soda with real soda taste!"

2. “Just think, forty years from now trips like this to the moon will be routine.”

1. "Houston, we have a problem. I'm really horny."
