Locked-out on Moon – Forgot the Keys

23 February, 2009 at 12:15 Leave a comment

I was watching ‘Apollo 13’ the other day. Booring. When they finally land on the moon after all the drama, and step on the surface, I was wondering, “Are there keys to the capsule? Can the space-men get locked out? Can they lose the keys?”

Using Seinlanguage, maybe that is what those failed missions are sometimes – the space-men locking themselves out and/or losing the keys. Maybe they are all out there having a stroll on the moon (or whatever is the simulation environment), driving around in their little car and when the pebble collecting is over, realize, “Oh I dont believe this… Dammit… forgot the keys inside”.
They would call up mission control, “Houston, we have a problem. We uh… oh God, this is so embarrassing… we left the keys inside. They’re in this big blue ashtray by the cockpit. We’re really sorry but we were wondering if you could open the door for us. We are sure there should be some electronic control”. And mission control would reply back, “We thought as much. Look under the wings for one of those hide-a-keys we put there as standard protocol. Dont lose them. It is an order”.
