Buzz Aldrin, the Apollo 11 astronaut, is to sell the instruction sheets used during the first Moon landing.

The notes were part of Aldrin's own manual used while Armstrong piloted the Lunar Module Eagle towards the Moon in 1969.

Also included in the sale is a second-by-second account by Aldrin of the fraught final minutes as the Module approached the surface of the moon.

It reveals that the first words spoken on the surface were "Contact Light", spoken by Aldrin to confirm touch down.

That must be a tense moment at the point of contact with the Lunar surface.

Bit of a squeezy bum time I reckon!

I would like to think a museum will buy it and not some rich man who will frame it and put it up to show his elite guests, the public should have access to these things.

In an ideal World a law would be passed were NO guns were allowed and all those out there destroyed, trouble is the law makers are not going to take a risk of trying to pass that without making sure they are armed first.
