Messy Picnickers

1971: Like messy picnickers, astronauts on the Apollo moon missions scattered their empty food packages on the ground, trampled all over the place, and didn’t take their rubbish home. Neil Armstrong and Edwin “Buzz” Aldrin left more than 100 items at the Sea of Tranquillity. Between 1969 and 1972, at six different landing sites, American astronauts left behind them earplugs, facial wet wipes, towels, two golf balls, 12 pairs of boots and 96 bags of urine, faeces and vomit.
