"My next astronaut is Buzz Aldrin."

(From the book, 'A Reluctant Icon: Letters to Neil Armstrong'.)
From the same book. Armstrong received this letter on his 70th birthday. He forwarded it to NASA and asked if they had "ever refuted the allegations or assembled information to be used in rebuttal?"
"Maybe you are one of those pensioners who do not surf the Internet, because you know precious little about how it works."

Amazing. Neil Armstrong responding to a teacher who was skeptical about the moon landing.
Anyway, fantastic book. And not all of the letters are from cranks.
