„You develop an instant global consciousness, a people orientation, an intense dissatisfaction with the state of the world, and a compulsion to do something about it. From out there on the moon, international politics look so petty. You want to grab a politician by the scruff of the neck and drag him a quarter of a million miles out and say, ‘Look at that, you son of a bitch’.”
Edgar Mitchell, am 5. und 6. Feber 1971 auf dem Mond, am 4. Feber 2016 in West Palm Beach, USA verstorben.
