Pete Conrad’s Bet
Apollo 12 Commander Charles (Pete) Conrad (3rd person to walk on the Moon) had a $500 bet with a reporter that NASA did not tell him what to say when he got to the Moon. People probably thought Neil Armstrong’s famous words ("That's one small step for a man, one giant leap for mankind") were scripted (they were not). So to prove his point Pete’s first words were, “Whoopie! Man, that may have been a small one for Neil, but that's a long one for me.“ Yes, that is what he said…on the Moon!
