Win a piece of the moon

And in conjunction with this week's release of Where the Mountain Meets the Moon (the subject of my previous post) you can win this very piece of the moon! (Although I notice that there is no scale provided, so it could be tensy).

NewScientist is having a competition to celebrate the 40th anniversary of the moon landing (one of the very few reasons why I wish I was a few years older. I would love to be able to remember it...).

Here's what to do: "You will doubtless know the words relayed from Neil Armstrong when he stepped off Apollo 11's lunar module and onto the moon itself: "One small step for man, one giant leap for mankind."

Can you think of something better for him to have said - something even more memorable, or perhaps something funnier?"

I can't (all that's coming into my head is the moon rock bit from The Princess Diaries), but if you can, head over there to enter by 5pm GMT on 29 June.


  1. My brain's not quite on, either, but I entered:

    I step now so our children can dream the future.

  2. I like it!

    All that came to me was: "It's only a paper moon, sailing over a cardboard sea..."
