TRUTH !!
When Astronaut Buzz Aldrin landed on the moon, he called the Houston Space Center to request a moment of silence and celebrated the Christian sacrament of Communion.
When the Eagle touched down on the moon on Sunday July 20, 1969,
Aldrin began his radio transmission to the Houston Space Center;
"This is the (lunar module) pilot, I'd like to take this opportunity to ask every person listening in, whoever and wherever they may be, to pause for a moment and contemplate the events of the past few hours and to give thanks in his or her own way."
Aldrin took out the communion elements that he had brought along for the trip and put them on a small table.
Aldrin then read "I am the vine, you are the branches. He who abides in Me, and I in him, he it is that bears much fruit, for apart from Me you can do nothing" (John 15:5, Revised Standard Version). and took communion.

I accidentally saw some of the answers before the questions, but I didn't know much of anything on this one anyway! I just got a couple of them. I did not know that about Buzz Aldrin observing Communion on the moon. How cool would that be?!
