Ma Vie En Merde

Sworn to the Dark

The New York State Museum in Albany just opened an exhibit in their lobby to display New York’s chunk of the Goodwill Moon Rock from Apollo 17. Naturally, I was excited to go see it yesterday. 

Imagine my disgust when I discovered no less than 4 errors in the text of the exhibit. In addition to the date of the mission being off by a couple days, there was THIS peach of a screwup regarding the astronauts’ names, just inches from where they were correctly identified in a photo. 

There’s only been 12 men on the moon, ever. How hard is it to get their names right? “Eugene Schmitt and Ronald Cernan,” indeed.

Sheesh.
