The Apollo 11 speech that we NEVER heard!

Steve M. sends in an article from concerning a speech or better a contingency speech concerning Apollo 11 that then president Nixon would have given had their been a catastrophic failure of the moon landing system.

This extraordinarily unsettling speech was written for Nixon to read if the Eagle had crashed and left Armstrong and Aldrin marooned on the lunar surface with no hope of rescue.

The document was found in the national archives some 30 years after the successful lunar mission.
