Alternate History: Nixon’s Prepared Speech For If The Moon Landing Had Failed

Can you imagine how different the world would be today if we’d had heard this speech instead of “One Small Step…” I was deeply saddened to hear about the passing of Neil Armstrong over the weekend. He quite literally changed the course of humanity with a simple sentence. Looking back, it is interesting to see that the Nixon administration was prepared in case that historic moment turned into a historic tragedy. The following speech was written by Bill Saphire and was set aside in case the events of the day had turned in a different direction.

Take a few moments and read the speech that would have been one of the most widely heard broadcasts in history… if it happened.
