Did you know that :
"Astronomers" is an anagram of :
"No more stars" and also "Moon starers" ?

Also :
"That's one small step for a man, one giant leap for mankind"
(Uttered by Neil A. Armstrong when he set foot on the Moon)
is an anagram of :
"A thin man ran; makes a large stride; left planet, pins flag on moon ! On to Mars !" ?
(Author : Steve Krakowski)

And that the correct greeting, when you meet an alien, is "Gnorts !" ?
(Neil Armstrong knew. His name is really a secret code. In reverse, it reads :
"Gnorts, Mr. Alien !")
