Falling Down on the Job

With 6 manned missions landing on the Moon, and nearly 300 hours spent on the surface, NASA was able to bring back countless images and videos of exploration and discovery. But with so much time spent up there, it was bound to happen that not every moment was quite so photogenic. Thanks to a gentleman named Joel Ivy, and the wonder of YouTube, we can enjoy a cheerful little compilation video. So without further ado–Astronauts Falling Down on the Moon.


And for some bonus fun, here is astronaut Harrison ‘Jack’ Schmitt kicking a boulder during the Apollo 17 mission. Also heard speaking is the other astronaut Gene Cernan.


The lead image is from, and the videos are from YouTube, the first one from , via nerdcore, and the second from .

    Apparently it is always after 5:00 on the moon. Cheers!

    Interesting that the conspiracy folks don't use these examples when arguing that the moon landings were faked.

    Also, I wonder if there are any lasting astronaut butt prints on the moon.

  • The footage of Schmitt kicking the boulder has convinced me that they really did send a geologist.

      Indeed, you're all clast abusers.
